Juleka Couffaine is a student in Miss Bustier's class at Collège Françoise Dupont. She is also the younger sister of Luka Couffaine and daughter of Anarka Couffaine.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Like Marc, Juleka is very timid and nervous around others. 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".[9] 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. She can be affectionate with those she is close to where she shares hugs with her friends or cuddling with Rose.

Juleka seems to like scary things, or be unafraid of such, as she is the only student to not fear Horrificator, calling her "awesome". Despite her shyness, Juleka can be brave and supportive towards her friends as seen during the attacks of Darkblade, Befana, and Gigantitan.

  • In the Serbian dub, her name is changed to Julija.
  • In Brazilian version, her name in some episodes is changed to Juleika.
  • Juleka's surname Couffaine is a combination of "couffin" (French for "coffin") and the French suffix "-aine" (meaning "of or from a place"), ultimately meaning "of/from the coffin".
