Marinette is babysitting Manon. They are playing with hand-crafted dolls that Marinette made herself: Ladybug, Cat Noir, Lady Wifi, Evillustrator and Rogercop. Because Marinette plays as the hero dolls, Manon laments that Marinette always wins and bursts into tears. Feeling guilty, Marinette allows Manon to borrow her Ladybug doll. However, Manon's mother, Nadja Chamack, forbids it, as she complains Manon already has too many toys; they get into a dispute, resulting in the Ladybug doll getting torn. Despite that, Manon still wants to borrow the doll, so she asks Marinette for it behind her mother's back. Marinette hesitates and decide on a compromise instead, allowing her to borrow the Lady Wifi doll. At the TVi studio, Nadja notices Manon playing with the doll and gets annoyed that Manon had defied her instructions so she confiscates it from her. Crying for innocence, Manon accepts Hawk Moth's akuma and becomes the Puppeteer, a puppet master who can control the people Marinette's dolls are based on.
