An arena packed with beauty queens... I'm scared to go in there.
Trista has purple hair in a braid, blue eyes and light tan skin. She also has a blue dot on her forehead.
Trista is a very shy and soft spoken young girl. She has trouble making friends on her own and will hide away by herself if she cannot get herself to talk to others. She can be a friendly girl when approached and seems to greatly enjoy being around those she can consider to be her friends.
Trista is also shown to be very apologetic, which can be seen in Issue 31 of the comics, where she constantly apologizes to Bloom when her friend Marzia blurts out news of Diaspro's upcoming arrival. She is also very considerate as she tried to withhold the news from Bloom, knowing that she would get anxious, and even tried explaining it in a way that would not upset her once Bloom demanded to know what she and her friends were whispering about.
She and her classmates are seen during the Day of the Gift ceremony.
She is seen attempting to transform only for her ears to change, looking somewhat like rabbit ears. She is later seen in her dorm room trying to use magic though meditating only for it to not work at all, as all the light magic is gone.
Trista may know some basic, first-level spells that all fairies can use, such as telekinesis, transmuting objects, and fixing minor messes. It's been shown that she possibly draws in energy when she mediates.
- Trista's name is of Latin origin and means "sorrowful."
