Juleka Couffaine[3] is a student in Miss Bustier's class at Collège Françoise Dupont.

Personality

HF S01EP11 (617)

Juleka responding in awe to the Horrificator's roar.

Juleka is very shy. She doesn't speak as often as the rest of her classmates, and when she does it is often in a self-conscious mumble. She is rarely particularly expressive, though she will be in some cases, including calling out being through with Kim's "stupid dares" in "Timebreaker".[4] She seems to like scary things, or be unafraid of such, as she is the only student to not fear Horrificator, instead calling her "awesome" in the episode of the same name. Because of her quiet nature, Juleka feels like no one ever notices her and forgets she is around, but she is aware that there are people that care about her, to whom she expresses compassion and gentleness to.

As Reflekta, she is proud and vengeful. Because no one ever paid attention to her, she wants everyone to look like her so that she will never be unnoticed again. In particular, she wants to transform Chloé because she prevented her from being in the class photo. Without a second thought, she even transforms people who are nice to her and notice her, including Rose. She is quite vain, constantly telling everyone that they will look better once they look like her and reassures them that they look amazing once they are transformed. Due to this arrogance, she believes her victims like their new looks, when they clearly do not. She is cunning as well, figuring out Ladybug's plan to catch her and persuading a transformed André Bourgeois that she'll turn him back to normal if he tricks Ladybug and Cat Noir into believing he is her.

Abilities

As a civilian

Juleka seems to be skilled at applying makeup, as she is the makeup artist for Nino's short film in "Horrificator". In "Captain Hardrock", like her brother Luka, she skilled in playing the guitar.

As Reflekta

  • The ray shooting out of the jewel.
  • Reflekta shooting a person.
  • One of Reflekta's copies (Chloé) behind Ladybug.
  • Reflekta lifting a locker.

Reflekta is able to shoot rays from the jewel she has on her right wrist, which transform people into an identical physical copy of herself. Those transformed by her retain their normal voices and minds but do not have her powers or their own abilities, and they are immune to subsequent hits from her ray. She is implied to be able to reverse the transformations as well, as she says to Hawk Moth that she will take care of getting Cat Noir's ring after getting the Ladybug Miraculous, despite having transformed him, and she promises André that she'll turn him back to normal in exchange for his cooperation.

She also seems to be able to float, as seen when she jumps around, and she is very strong and fast, quickly throwing away multiple lockers in front of a door in the span of a couple of seconds and breaking free from a basketball hoop around her body.

Relationships

Rose Lavillant


PF (60)

Juleka listening to Rose talk about Prince Ali after giving her a tissue.

Juleka is best friends with Rose, and Juleka cares about her. While the quieter of the two, Juleka enjoys listening to Rose, like when Rose is gushing about Prince Ali in "Princess Fragrance", and she will speak up for her when it's definitely needed, complimenting Rose's notebook and Rose herself in "The Notebook". She doesn't believe Rose about breaking her photo curse in "Reflekta", and after being locked out of the photo, she sadly tells Rose to forget about her before running away. But later, after Rose and Marinette prove her wrong about the curse, Juleka is deeply happy about it.
In "Zombizou", Juleka is seen cuddling and comforting Rose after her close call with Zombizou's minions, the two are even holding hands.


Marinette Dupain-Cheng/Ladybug

RK (1009)

Juleka in a photo with Rose and Marinette.

A friend to Marinette, Juleka likes her and her kindness. In "Darkblade", Juleka supports Marinette's run as class representative and mumbles a incomprehensible request she would like if Marinette wins. After countless times of bad photos for Juleka, Marinette helps her break the pattern in "Reflekta", even after Chloé ruins Juleka's attempt to be in the class photo. Getting good pictures of herself and her friends with her at the Place des Vosges, Juleka graciously thanks Marinette for helping her.

In "Befana", Juleka finds Marinette cool as she works with her friends to defend her. In "Gigantitan", Juleka like the others already know that Marinette has a crush on Adrien and approves of it. She works with her friends to help Marinette plan a date with Adrien but when Marinette turns Adrien's offer down. Juleka has confidence in her friend that she'll get there someday.

With Ladybug, Juleka is grateful for the superhero and believes in her ability to save the day with Cat Noir. In "Gigantitan", she even works with Alya and the others to help Ladybug get out of the villains grip. As Reflekta, she isn't pleased with Ladybug's interference with her plans, and she works to keep one step ahead of her schemes.

Alya Césaire

LW S01EP07 (35)

Juleka and Rose responding to Alya's question on Marinette's whereabouts.

Alya is another one of Juleka's friends. She, Alya, and Marinette work together to cheer up Rose after Chloé upsets her in "The Notebook". She also agrees to Alya's plan for them and Rose to help Marinette and her parents finish their large order of macaroons in "Busy Day".

Chloé Bourgeois

Juleka dislikes Chloé and her rudeness towards everyone. Because Chloé prevents her from being in the class photo, Juleka falls into despair and cries, lamenting that she'll never be in a photo as long as Chloé finds a way to keep her out. Beyond that incident, Juleka is displeased with Chloé insulting Rose's notebook in "The Notebook".

During her time as Reflekta, she makes it one of her first objectives to punish Chloé by insulting her looks and transforming her into one of her replicas.
