Trina Mah-Derex. Mechanic for the Saints. Jack's more diplomatic and sweet-talking SO.

Most of the time.

History

When the war broke out and then New York went to shit, Trina stayed by the side of her boss and lover, Jack Derex. They made do the best they could and always seemed to muddle through somehow. When he established the bar as a safe haven in the underground railroad for humans fleeing the city, she supported him and helped him keep people moving to safety.

When the Den of Iniquity was destroyed by a bomb and her beau nearly went with it, her world changed. She barely spoke until he finally woke up, and after that she was much more careful about the words she chose. The young woman became more private and reserved, increasingly distrustful of everyone about her, and less likely to do anything that might rock their supremely delicate boat upon the dangerously turbulent waters.

That was, of course, after she tracked down the sons of bitches who dared try to kill her man and creatively rewired their pretty little van to feed a few sparks back into the gas tank to blow their pathetic asses back to the oozing pit of Hell where Nathan Petrelli found them. In pieces. Hundreds of charred and oozing pieces.

Her support of Jack's decision to become more actively involved in 'terrorist activities' was unwaivering despite the strain it frequently put on their relationship, and his increasingly organized group of activists needed to keep their vehicles on the road. That's when she started quietly doing her part to make sure that happened. Throw in her driving and mechanic skills and limited firearms training, and you have the reason she soon become a highly valued member of the team. Also, making sure the boss gets his manly needs met on a fairly regular basis helps.

While she is still a terrible liar, she has become pretty damned talented at using her good looks as well as sugar-coating and withholding the truth to anyone outside of the Saints to get what she wants or needs. She may not be any more learned, but she at least manages to look more refined in public than in years past. The more illegal procurements and actual deceptions she leaves to more skillful hands. The survival of the Saints is a priority of the utmost importance to her, and they can count on Katrina to always do her part. To that end, her powers have been trained up to be something appropriately efficient to keep lives safe on the battlefield and have proven invaluable in numerous missions.

Publicly, she goes by her more formal full name of Katrina and is no longer the inseparable other half of Jack's life. It's something she's taken on as part and parcel of keeping him safe. That's the unspeakable joy of being hopelessly in love with someone who's considered to be a terrorist leader by a fascist regime. In the quiet and safety of the Saints Circle and in their secret little home, however, they are still very much an item and she is faithfully ever at his beck and call.

Quotes

  • "…How do you expect me to fit ANOTHER rocket launcher on here? I don't care how long Gene spent rebuilding the fucking thing! You've already got four! Normal people do NOT need more than four! Why do YOU need more than four?"

  • "Go get Jack. Jack wants him let go, I'll do it. If he don't, you tell him to stay right where he is and you bring me a gawd damned gun." (to McAlister after capturing Peter Petrelli from the Past, Bless Me, Father, For I Am Petrelli)

Trivia

dftrina_mug.jpg
  • Baby, the factory-restored 1967 Mustang Convertible, is safely stowed away… waiting for the day when normal cars are again safe for her to drive out on the streets. Outside of her love for Jack, it's become Trina's only beacon of hope in an otherwise very bleak world. Cleaning it has become her own form of therapy.
  • While her identity remains unknown, there is a publicly released image of Trina. Yay for treason and terrorism!
  • The Name Game. Trina has made a personal game of finding as many names as possible to call President Petrelli. The only rule is that it must include a derogatory word of some sort and a) Alliterate, b) Rhyme, or c) Play on one of his official titles as president. She will consider the game won when she finally finds a perfect phrase that does all four.
