Before Season 1

Tikki was the first being to come into existence. She has lived since the dawn of the universe. In ancient China, she met a mage who crafted her Miraculous, allowing her to finally help humanity. For over 5,000 years, Tikki helped people transform into superheroes in order to save the world. She started in China and went to Egypt, Greece, Namibia, Japan, France, Mexica, France, and Vietnam. She stayed last with Master Fu.

Season 1


In "Ladybug & Cat Noir (Origins - Part 1)", Marinette opened the box that held the Ladybug Miraculous, releasing Tikki. Tikki tried calming Marinette down when they first met, but Marinette threw books at her until she caught Tikki underneath a glass. Tikki explained to Marinette what she was (a kwami), the powers she granted (Lucky Charm and Miraculous Ladybug), the duty that was given to Marinette (purifying the akuma), and how Marinette would be able to transform. She emphasized that Marinette could not tell anyone about her existence. She convinced Marinette that she was her friend and had Marinette transform into Ladybug. Together, with the help of Cat Noir, they took down Stoneheart. However, Marinette forgot to capture the akuma, allowing it to multiply and create more Stonehearts. Marinette felt guilty and took off the Ladybug Miraculous, much to Tikki's protests. Because Marinette did not want her, Tikki was trapped in the Ladybug Miraculous.
