I have to babysit my sisters all the time, which makes me an expert in dealing with angels.

Alya Césaire, "Stormy Weather"

Ella and Etta Césaire[1] are Alya's younger twin sisters.[2]

In "Sapotis", after being scolded by Alya and losing the opportunity to go to an amusement park for misbehaving, they are akumatized together by Hawk Moth into Sapotis, two monster supervillains.


Physical appearance

Both Ella and Etta have tan skin, wavy brown hair that they put into low buns, and hazel eyes.

Civilian attire

One sister has teal earrings. She wears a pink and white-striped t-shirt, jean shorts with folded up legs, and pink sneakers with white laces and white toe tips.

The other sister has pink earrings. She wears a teal and white-striped t-shirt, jean shorts with folded up legs, and teal sneakers with white laces and white toe tips.

As Sapotis

Sapotis has smaller proportions, and she is red with two downward-bent lavender stripes on the top of her head. Two lavender ear-shaped ridges with black edges come out of each side of her head. Her eyes are lavender with pale yellow sclerae, and she have two pointy canines. Her feet are like hands, having opposable thumbs, and she have black claws. Additionally, she have two yellow golden bands around each wrist and ankle, and around her hips, she have a tutu-like object with two golden bands, the colors from the bands to the tips being red, lavender, and black.


Ella and Etta are fun-loving, enthusiastic, and mischievous. They often speak in unison, and they while they usually get along, they sometimes argue with each other over things like their possessions.

Very energetic, they love messing around, and they leap onto Cat Noir in excitement when he asks them where their house is in order to take them home. Disobedient at times, they enjoy causing trouble and blaming Sapotis for their behavior. However, they don't like being in trouble, and they cry when they are upset, like being devastated when Alya punishes them by telling them they won't get to go amusement park the next day.

As Sapotis, their mischief increases, happily breaking rules and causing mayhem across Paris. They enjoy eating, and they don't care for others' safety as long as their own selfish desires are being met. However, because of their obsession with fun, they easily fall for Rena Rouge's illusion of an amusement park, ignoring Hawk Moth's warning that it is a trap.

They also tend to growl, which is especially noticible while they growl "Miraculous" while ganging up on Ladybug and Cat Noir.


As Sapotis

Sapotis has increased speed and dexterity with which to climb over anything. They can curl into balls, allowing them to tackle people with stronger impact. When they eat food, they multiply into more Sapotis, though these new ones will vanish when the propellers on their hats are removed.

  • It is currently uncertain which twin is Ella and which twin is Etta. The images associated with each twin's name are guesses not to be taken as fact.
  • The unnamed sibling's age is unknown.
  • All of the Césaires' first names are based on jazz singers.




  • Ella's name is a reference to Ella Fitzgerald, and Etta's name is a reference to Etta James, just as the rest of her family's names are references to jazz singers.[3]
  • Their akumatized form was first revealed as silhouettes in a promotional poster on Jeremy Zag's Instagram.
  • Both Etta and Ella have been akumatized at the same time, since they are both holding onto the object the akuma affects.
  • As the term "Sapotis" is from a créole legend that Ella and Etta pretend to be, Sapotis is one of the few villains Hawk Moth does not technically name.
