Marinette Dupain-Cheng is a middle school student, fashion designer, activist, romantic, and sometimes a superhero.
"Um... what exactly am I supposed to do with /this/?!"
Marinette Dupain-Cheng is a normal girl with a normal life. The daughter of French and Chinese bakers, she has something of a cosmopolitan view of the world. She's a passionate artist, working on fashion projects in her spare time - and she's a romantic, nursing crushes for months while trying to figure out what to do with them - and she's got a secret. When evil rises up, she transforms into the mysterious Ladybug, a masked heroine who confidently stands against the forces of darkness.
A Girl Like Any Other
Marinette Dupain-Cheng is a normal girl who does normal girl things, such as:
- Having her photo taken with BMW's CEO's mother and a famous model
Marinette has a lot of energy, a sometimes-fleeting attention span, and a drive to throw herself into many passions. She's often juggling at least three ideas at any time, having a creative spark that shows itself in her own fashion creations. Some of her interests can have odd niches - she enjoys heavy metal and fighting games as much as she enjoys graphic design and fashion trends - but whatever catches her interest, she throws herself into.
Unfortunately, all her energy and passion can have its downsides. She can fixate on a project far far past what is reasonable, often working late into the night to finish just one more stitch. Furthermore, if things start to seem to go wrong she's quick to concoct catastrophe-scenarios in her head - jumping to panicked conclusions that reach absurd proportions. Anxiety and panic have her seen as a mouse more often than not.
And yet, she hates injustice. She finds the steel in her spine when friends or passions are wronged - when unfairness and dishonesty rise up. When it's a matter of principle, something she can't look away from - watch out.
As Marinette, she has a variety of minor talents. She's multilingual, speaking French fluently and Standard Chinese less so. She's very creative, plying her hand at cake decoration and sketching and sewing and woodworking alike. A knack for detail, skilled at seeing how disparate elements can come together as a cohesive whole.
As Ladybug, holder of the Miraculous of Creation, she's something of a trickster-heroine. An agile parkour expert, she wields a magical yo-yo in off-the-wall tricks to bewilder and distract her enemies. Her signature spell, 'Lucky Charm', grants her an item that can become the key to victory - though figuring out how to use a cat toy or a pair of chopsticks is often a challenge. Her greatest spell, 'Miraculous Ladybug', is built for purifying evil and restoring damage caused by powers of darkness.
Tsukino-senpai - One of Marinette's upperclassmen. The gulf between middle school and high school never seemed so large, but it's heartening for Marinette to see someone who's a little clumsy act with dignity and grace under pressure. Marinette looks up to Usagi a /lot/, and does her best to listen to her advice - but it's easy to be distracted by the glamour.
Hino-senpai - One of Usagi's friends, and by extension another upperclassman that Marinette can look up to. She's an Ohtori student, so Marinette doesn't see her quite as often - but she can respect the shrine maiden's grace and sage advice. Her willingness to pick a fight is inspirational!
Sailor Moon - Almost a senpai to /Ladybug/, this is one of the stalwart defenders against the forces of darkness. Marinette is something of a fan, having once made a winter coat inspired by her outfit - and then in a lucky turn of events, got to give it to her indirectly. Ladybug is a bit more professional, though - she respects Sailor Moon's experience, but acknowledges that they're both fellow warriors against darkness.
