Trix is a member of the Neverseen and a powerful Guster, who keeps his physical appearance hidden by using a Neverseen cloak. Keefe got the feeling that Trix and Umber frequently worked together, and if this is true, he most likely took her death pretty hard.
Although Trix hasn't made face-to-face contact with Sophie yet, we can assume that he has a powerful grasp on his his ability, as the Neverseen don't usually recruit someone into their order unless they have something useful to offer. This could also imply that he is in an advantageous position within the Lost Cities, possibly serving as a spy within the Nobility.
Pre-Book[edit | edit source]
Nothing is known about Trix's past, real identity, physical appearance, or motives for joining the Neverseen. However, Trix has never been involved in a scene while Sophie is present, so this could change.
Although this was never actually stated in the books, in the section of Unlocked where Sophie writes down everything she knows about the various Neverseen members, she confirms that Trix was one of her kidnappers. It is unknown how she came across this information, as it was never mentioned in the previous books. There were only three main kidnappers (Brant, Gethen, and Alvar), but it's possible that Trix was also present at the Neverseen's Paris hideout.
Keefe was introduced to both Trix and Umber so he wouldn't be surprised about their involvement in Wylie's kidnapping. Neither Keefe nor Trix liked each other.
After Umber used shadows to open the Lodestar gateway, Trix, Alvar, and Ruy infiltrated the Silver Tower. While Trix immobilized Wylie with a large blast of wind, Alvar ripped Wylie's registry pendant off and Ruy trapped him in a force field. Trix and Umber most likely left after that, as they weren't needed for Wylie's subsequent interrogation and torture.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
We know nothing about Trix's physical appearance, as he hasn't yet shown up in a scene where Sophie is present.
Personality[edit | edit source]
We know nothing about Trix's personality, as he hasn't yet to shown up in a scene where Sophie is present.
Relations[edit | edit source]
Umber (ally/possible significant other) - while infiltrating the Neverseen, Keefe told Sophie that he got the feeling Umber and Trix worked more closely together than some of the other members did.
Identity Theories[edit | edit source]
The leading theory on Trix's real identity is that he is Durand Redek, Marella's father. There really isn't any evidence to back up this claim besides the fact that Durnad is one of the only known Gusters in the series. Even then, Marella stated that her father helped her when she first discovered her pyrokinesis, but if he was Trix, he probably would have tried to influence her into helping the Neverseen instead. It's possible that he adopts a much different personality when around friends and family in order to avoid suspicion (much like Alvar did before he was outed), but this theory still seems incredibly unlikely.
