"No doubt your masters want to consult me on matters of strategy and tactics."
"No. I think they said something about needing someone who could die horribly without being missed. So, naturally, they thought of you."

Trinuma is a member of the Order of Mata Nui.
When the Toa Nuva were taken to Daxia to use the Staff of Artakha, Trinuma placed the staff into a niche inside a spherical chamber so that it could be used to reverse all of the effects of the Great Cataclysm.
Trinuma was later sent with Botar to purchase weapons from Xia and store them at a rendezvous point with Brutaka and his team on a small, wooded island not far from the Southern Continent. Suspicious of the purchase, Makuta Icarax went in to investigate. He soon discovered the pair and attacked them. Though Botar was killed, Trinuma managed to escape, stored the weapons on Tren Krom's island, and returned to Daxia to report what had occurred.
Trinuma later released Vezon from his cell on Daxia, telling the crazed half-Skakdi that he was needed as someone who could die without being missed. He and Vezon set a course for Destral, and, after an onslaught of questions from the half-Skakdi, Trinuma revealed that Vezon was to betray the Order and the entire universe. When they reached Destral, Trinuma dropped Vezon off on Destral and left.
After Makuta Teridax took over Mata Nui's body, the Makuta destroyed Daxia and many members of the Order. However, Trinuma managed to survive, and made contact with the Toa Nuva and Takanuva on the island of Stelt, informing them that there were still other members of the Order who survived.
Trinuma was among the survivors of the Matoran Universe following Mata Nui's death in this alternate universe. When Toa Takanuva arrived in the dimension, Trinuma escorted him to Turaga Takanuva's chambers.
Abilities and Traits
Mask and Tools
Trinuma has two Nynrah Ghost Blasters mounted on his back. They grant him the ability to take control of any mechanical object fired at. He carries a shield and wears the Great Mask of Charisma, which allows him to convince others to become loyal to his cause. Trinuma also possesses tools that can emit kinetic energy, allowing him to fly. He can also use them to fire bursts of kinetic force.
A special web code was distributed in the July–August 2008 issue of LEGO BrickMaster Magazine. When entered in the Kanoka Club or on the LEGO Club website, it yields the instructions for the Trinuma combiner. The combiner is made from the Tahu, Gali, and Onua Mistika sets and features two Nynrah Ghost Blasters mounted on its back.
- Greg Farshtey provided this pronunciation on the BZPower forums, where the slang term "mah" was filtered to its standard form "my."[OGDi: Sep 10 2008, 11:15 PM] As such, the pronunciation was listed as "Try-new-my" instead of the intended "Try-new-mah."
