—Trifa, after trapping Blake in her web

Overview Image Gallery

Trifa is a character in RWBY first introduced in "Alone Together". She is a member of the White Fang, serving as an enforcer and a part of Yuma's small group of White Fang agents tasked with covert missions.


Trifa is a young girl with blue eyes and medium length blue hair covering her right eye. She has pale skin and pronounced gray veins on her chest and arms. These lead to her gray hands, where her spinnerets are located.

She wears a black and dark gray uniform with gold buttons and zipper like the rest of her enforcers, but unlike her male teammates, her front zipper is left open, revealing her upper chest.

Trifa is a spider Faunus. Her biology takes form in the spinnerets on the palms of her hands, which give her the ability to shoot webbing.


Trifa appears to be extremely devoted to her White Fang faction, and heavily believes in their cause. Her mannerism is serious and professional, as seen on the mission she had been sent on to capture Blake Belladonna.


Ilia Amitola sets a trap for Blake, while White Fang members attack the Belladonna Family Home. Yuma, Trifa and another member attack Blake with Trifa incapacitating her with her web. After Ilia talks to Blake she takes Yuma and they leave to assist the attack on the Mansion. Trifa is tasked to take the immobilized Blake to Adam Taurus in Mistral, but Blake expected Ilia's betrayal and brought Sun Wukong along to help. Sun dispatches Trifa's accomplice by landing on him before dueling her. She fights with her knife before getting knocked out by Blake.

It is unknown what happened to her after that, but a majority of White Fang members in Menagerie were arrested after the attack on the Belladonna House.
