Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

Trinity was the first officer on the Nebuchadnezzar, a Zion hovercraft commanded by Morpheus. Her "birth" name as a human living inside the Matrix is unknown. Apparently while inside, Trinity had made herself as a local legend in the illusory hacking community of humans living in the Matrix for hacking into the Internal Revenue Service database. Based on Neo's recollection on first meeting Trinity, as well as information from "A Detective Story", an animated short film from The Animatrix, most people (at least according to Trinity herself, "most guys") make the mistake of assuming someone of Trinity's reputation as being a man. The Nebuchadnezzar is a futuristic dark coloured mechanical hovercraft captained by Morpheus in the Matrix trilogy. ...

Like other hovercraft crews, Trinity's job involved the freeing of minds that she and Morpheus determined were ready to accept the truth about the Matrix. Trinity's name is derived from the Holy Trinity which three persons in one God which is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.


In The Matrix

Under the guidance of Morpheus, Trinity and the crew of the Nebuchadnezzar observe and later free from the Matrix, Thomas "Neo" Anderson. It is apparent that Trinity has begun to develop feelings for Neo before the very start of the first movie, "The Matrix", as she relieves Cypher from his observation shift earlier than planned just to watch Neo. This does not adequately cite its references or sources. ... The Matrix is a science fiction / action film written and directed by Larry and Andy Wachowski and starring Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Joe Pantoliano and Hugo Weaving. ... Many fictional characters appear in the Matrix series. ...

In an earlier visit, before the events of the first movie, Trinity was told by The Oracle that she would fall in love with a man and that man would be The One, a person with fantastic superpowers while inhabiting the Matrix. Like others who received predictions from the Oracle, Trinity keeps her foretellings to herself. The Oracle is a fictional character portrayed by Gloria Foster (and later, by Mary Alice) within the Matrix series of films created by the Wachowski brothers. ...

Shortly after taking Neo to visit the Oracle for the first time, Morpheus is captured and Trinity and Neo are nearly killed when Cypher betrays the crew to the Agents. Neo and Trinity reenter the Matrix and rescue Morpheus from Agents, sentient programs that police the artificial reality of the Matrix and hunt down and kill rebels. After the rescue, Trinity is successfully unplugged from the Matrix, but the exit is destroyed before Neo can follow her. Following a long fight and a chase sequence, Neo is gunned down by Agent Smith and dies. Refusing to believe that Neo is really dead, due to the Oracle's prediction, Trinity then tells Neo's lifeless body that he must be The One because she is in love with him, and kisses him. She tells him to get up, and he comes back to life and kills Smith, stepping into the role of The One in doing so.

In The Matrix Reloaded

Approximately six months pass before we see Trinity again. She and Neo have become lovers and steal moments for themselves whenever they can.

Neo meets with the Oracle, who tells him that he must find The Keymaker. Trinity, Neo, and Morpheus free the Keymaker from imprisonment by The Merovingian, a power-hungry sentient program. Persephone, The Merovingian's wife, asks Neo for a kiss, saying that she will give the rebels the Keymaker in exchange. Persephone feels suffocated in her marriage to The Merovingian and wants to sample the love between Neo and Trinity through the kiss. At this request, Trinity points a handgun at Persephone threateningly and says, "Why don't you sample this instead?" as she cocks the weapon. Spoiler warning: In the movie The Matrix Reloaded, The Keymaker is a computer program taking the form of an older Asian man (portrayed by Randall Duk Kim) imprisoned by The Merovingian. ... This is an article on the fictional character The Merovingian in The Matrix Trilogy. ... Persephone Spoiler warning: In the movies The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, Persephone (played by Monica Bellucci) is the wife of The Merovingian. ...

Throughout The Matrix Reloaded, Neo has troubling dreams (while still in the real world) of Trinity falling to her death after being attacked and chased out of the window of a skyscraper by an Agent. He asks her not to enter the Matrix as he, Morpheus and the Keymaker make their way to the door that leads to the Source, the mainframe computer that controls the Matrix, and she initially agrees. However, after the Vigilant's crew is killed while carrying out their part of the mission, Trinity rushes in to complete the destroyed crew's task, disabling a power grid so that Neo can reach the Source. Just as Neo envisioned, Trinity is attacked by Agents and forced to dive out the window of a skyscraper. The Matrix Reloaded is the second installment of The Matrix series, written and directed by the Wachowski brothers. ...

Neo learns from The Architect that he is the sixth One to appear. Neo is given a choice by the Architect: enter the Source and save Zion, or leave and rescue Trinity, which the Architect assures him will result in the destruction of the human race. All of Neo's predecessors chose to go to the Source, but Neo experiences love for humanity more distinctly through his love for Trinity, and leaves to save her. Neo catches Trinity, and after she dies from a bullet wound, revives her just as she once revived him. I am the Architect. ...

In The Matrix Revolutions

After Neo stops five Sentinels in the real world just by thinking it, Trinity cares for the unconscious Neo at the start of the final movie, The Matrix Revolutions. She and Morpheus later discover that Neo's mind is being held prisoner by the Merovingian. After unsuccessfully pursuing the Trainman to gain Neo's release, Trinity, Morpheus, and Seraph, the Oracle's guardian, decide to enter Club Hel, a nightclub owned by the Trainman's boss, The Merovingian. Trinity and the group dispatch the bodyguards in front of the club but are outgunned and are captured by the Merovingian's minions as they enter the club. Frustrated with the Merovingian's monologing on terms to obtain Neo, Trinity says, "I don't have time for this shit," begins a fight and places The Merovingian in a Mexican standoff to successfully obtain Neo's release from the Train Station. The Matrix Revolutions is the third and last film in the Matrix trilogy. ... Seraph is the name of a fictional character (played by Collin Chou) in the science fiction film saga, The Matrix. ... In the film Reservoir Dogs, Eddie, Joe, and Mr. ...

Shortly after returning Neo's mind to his body, Trinity accompanies Neo to the Machine City in an attempt to stop the war. Neo is blinded by Bane, whose body is controlled by an Agent Smith clone. After dispatching Bane, Trinity pilots the Logos past the Machine City's defenses by catapulting the ship over the defenses and briefly into the clear Earth sky above the dark clouds. The Logos stalls as it falls. Trinity reactivates the hovercraft pads, but too late. Her body is impaled by rebars as the Logos crashes into a central spire in the Machine City. Trinity has a last moment with Neo before he kisses her and her life fades away for the last time. Bane is the name of a character in the films Matrix Reloaded and its sequel, Matrix Revolutions. ...

Trinity's loss allows Neo to finally face Smith. Having everything to gain for all of humanity and Machines and nothing left to lose for himself now that Trinity had died, Neo sacrifices himself to Smith by becoming a Smith clone. Since Neo was jacked directly into the Machine City, the presence of the now-purposeless Smith/Neo clone allows the Machines to locate and destroy all Smith clones, which also kills Neo.

The fate of Trinity's remains has never been verified to date, although Morpheus later uses simulations of Neo and Trinity in a training program for The Kid as shown in the graphic novel story "I Kant" in "The Matrix Comics", Volume 2 (Burlyman Entertainment). In the online game The Matrix Online, the documents of an exile program known as the Assassin, whose purpose was once recycling the corpses of the humans plugged into the Matrix, claim that he was not allowed to recycle Trinity's corpse, and that the machines were planning some kind of project for it. It has been speculated that the Machines studied Trinity and used what they learned in the creation of Agent Pace. Many fictional characters appear in the Matrix series. ...
