I've got her.
—Trifa, after trapping Blake in her web

Trifa is a character in RWBY first introduced in "Alone Together". She was 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, which is considered a rare type.[1] 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.
