Félix Graham de Vanily Square.png

Félix Graham de Vanily is a character of Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir. He is the maternal cousin of Adrien Agreste.


Similar to Gabriel, Félix changed when his father passed away meaning at one point he wasn't always mischievous. But unlike Adrien who is kind and gentle, Félix is rude, sneaky and, according to Ladybug, very pushy. Especially when it came to getting what he desires, even willing to negotiate with Hawk Moth and putting others in danger.


  • Félix was a darker character that Thomas Astruc created to be Marinette's love interest and Cat Noir's alter ego, but Félix came off as an anime cliché, and no one, including Thomas, was convinced by his dynamic with Ladybug as a couple of heroes. This led to the creation of an entirely new character, Adrien Agreste, to be Cat Noir.
    • For a while, Thomas considered bringing Félix back at some point, but since then, he doesn't seem to have intentions to use him, eventually outright stating that Félix will never appear.
      • Despite Félix was stated to never appear, he did managed to get an appearance in the series, but unlike before, he's now Adrien's cousin and he's no longer Cat Noir
  • Félix was the original version of Cat Noir that was seen in the Ladybug PV. He was replaced by Adrien Agreste in the main series.
    • Originally, Félix was a name that fans called him without knowing his real name. In an early synopsis, his name was confirmed to be Félix, but later on, sources said it was Adrien, confusing fans. It wasn't until later that they learned that Félix had not only been Cat Noir's original civilian name, but also a separate character from Adrien.
  • He was named Félix because it means happy/lucky in Latin.
    • He is mean in the Ladybug PV, though.
  • Félix's appearance is very different from the current version of Adrien. Adrien has more casual clothing with a variety of colors, green eyes, darker skin and a less tidy hairstyle. As Cat Noir, Adrien's outfit has lower boots, gloves, and a staff for a weapon.
    • Their personalities are also different. Adrien is less reserved and much kinder in his civilian form, and he is nicer to Marinette and is her friend, but oblivious to her feelings for him.
  • As opposed to Adrien, Félix's ring cannot come off anytime unless he gets a kiss from Ladybug. In addition, while wearing the ring, Félix is cursed to have bad luck, but it is unknown if this curse or any curse affects Adrien.
    • Félix's cat ears when he transforms are real, unlike Adrien's, whose cat ears are fake.
  • When the unused concept of Quantic Kids was in development, Félix was still Cat Noir, as seen in a concept art. He continued to be, even after the Quantic Kids idea was shelved.
    • If an anime or 2D version of Ladybug is made, Thomas Astruc has stated that the Cat Noir featured would probably still be Adrien, because Félix isn't a strong enough character to write for on a long term.
      • This has been proven to be true, as revealed for the Miraculous Ladybug OVA.
  • There were also no plans for any variation of Félix to appear in the current 3D show.
    • Félix Agreste's outfit from The Mini Menace Ladybug looks like the Marvel Comics' character Black Panther.
