Thomas Astruc is a director introduced in the third season of Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir.
He is a very nice man and usually upbeat and excited about his movie premieres. He just wants to be recognized and appreciated for his work but has a tendency to be ignored by everyone.
- It can be assumed that Thomas's birth date is January 18, 1975, as his real life counterpart, who is the creator of the series, was born on this date.
- Thomas' akumatization was decided upon when he had to discard a script for Season 2 because it "wasn't satisfying enough."
- Thomas' character is allergic to almonds, although he is not allergic to them in real life.
- His supervillain name is a combination of both animated and maestro.
- One of the forms that he transformed into was Ryu from the Street Fighter video game series and a heroine from the Pretty Cure franchise.
