Trish is the estranged daughter of Passione's Boss and Donatella Una. Being a target for the Boss' numerous enemies, she is bodyguarded by Bruno Bucciarati's gang. She eventually awakens her own Stand, Spice Girl and grows into a valuable ally for the team.
Trish is a 15-year-old girl of average height and slim build. She wears her light hair (often depicted as pink) in a loose whirl atop her head. In the manga, Trish was first depicted wearing a t-shirt coupled with a dark corset exposing her belly. In addition, she wore a thigh-length small skirt with sunflowers as a recurring pattern and without any leg-wear/footwear. Her haircut, although still swirly, was slightly different from her signature whirl as she had two locks of hair falling on each side of her head. This outfit is omitted in the anime adaptation.
Trish's signature outfit appears first in Chapter 486. It consists of a dark brassiere connected to a necklace patterned in tiles of alternating shades of mathematical symbols. She wears a long skirt of similar design, split at the top of her left thigh, and a pair of knee-high small-heeled boots without any leg-wear/footwear underneath. The boots initially had zippers and small laces but were removed later on.
Additionally, the cover of Volume 57 depicts her wearing a one-piece white blouse with Spice Girl as a motif on the front side while only exposing her bare legs. The outfit is supposedly inspired by an outfit American model Trish Goff wore for a fashion show. Besides, Trish's hair was again depicted differently and she wore a pair of wedge sandals with ankle bracelets.
Trish is first introduced as a spoiled, selfish girl with high-class tastes. Indeed, as soon as she is in the care of Team Bucciarati, she immediately demands branded cosmetics products and only sparkling water despite the severity of the situation; this is later revealed to be a way to hide her insecurities, although her self-doubt is still apparent in instances such as expressing her nervousness to Bucciarati whether she and her father would get along or not.
Over the course of the time that she spends with the group, a deeply loyal, determined side of her is revealed. When she discovers her Stand, Spice Girl, with the help of Giorno Giovanna, she comes to terms with her own power to defend herself and her new friends.
At first cold toward her bodyguards, her relationships with them improve as she becomes one of their companions in the fight against Diavolo.
She is shown caring for Narancia Ghirga's safety during The Grateful Dead's attack. She deliberately refuses to use the ice for her own benefit and instead uses it to reduce the aging effects of the stand on the young man, while Bucciarati urges her to keep it and use it for herself. Furthermore, she opens up herself to Narancia after Green Day's ambush expressing her urge for Bucciarati's attention as well as her ambiguous feelings for him. In the anime adaptation, a scene where she is shown watching over a resting Narancia was added.
Trish can act mysophobic and can scream if she touches an object with the lingering body heat from another individual. Moreover, she dislikes anything that isn't beautiful, insects as well as smelly foolish men. The anime shows that she inherited these features from her mother.
Trish has been shown once to be adept at self-defense, easily reversing Narancia's knife back onto him when he threatened her, stabbing his cheek.
- Main article: Spice Girl
Trish's humanoid Stand is Spice Girl. It has good melee and defensive capabilities, with the unique ability to soften any object (to the quality of a springy cushion) and making them nigh indestructible.
As Diavolo's daughter, Trish has a spiritual connection to him. She can notably sense whenever he is nearby.
Trish is the daughter of Diavolo and Donatella Una, conceived without Diavolo's knowledge. Initially she's stated to be born in April 19, 1986, in Ischia, Campania, but it was then changed to June 8, 1985. She lived a normal life with her mother Donatella until Donatella fell ill and began looking for a certain "Solido Naso", which caught the attention of the gang Passione. After Donatella's passing, Passione found out about her parentage, and she became the center of attention of two factions: firstly her father's loyal underlings who tried to secure her, and then La Squadra Esecuzioni who wanted to kidnap Trish to get to the Boss. Agents loyal to the Boss quickly took her but the traitor assassins continued trailing her. Despite her high-class tastes, Trish seems to have lived in humble living conditions.
Trish was eventually passed in the care of Pericolo, who brought her to Capri to meet her future bodyguards.
Trish under protection
First seen disguised as a janitor, Trish is introduced as the boss' daughter that is put under the eye of Polpo's replacement capo, Bruno Bucciarati along with his gang members Narancia Ghirga, Pannacotta Fugo, Guido Mista, Leone Abbacchio, and Giorno Giovanna. The first time she meets the bodyguards, an unaware Narancia mistakes her for a mere janitor and tells her to go away but she antagonizes him and manhandles him. However, the dispute is defused when Pericolo intervenes. Pericolo eventually reveals her true nature to Team Bucciarati and she puts on her normal clothes in private while Pericolo explains to the team their mission. As she exits the toilets, Fugo tries to greet her but she tells him to take out his jacket and swipes her hands on it, immediately demanding extravagant care under the circumstances such as wanting new clothes, make-up, a magazine and French mineral water.
Team Bucciarati subsequently brings her to a house in a vineyard that serves as a hideout for a time. However, when Narancia is sent on a supply run, the items she has asked for are seen by Formaggio, confirming her presence. Formaggio persists in trying to discover Narancia's hideout and the ensuing fight destroys a whole street, which is bound to attract the attention of the rest of the hitmen. The Boss quickly issues new orders and tells the team to retrieve a key in the ruins of Pompeii, which tells them to go to Venice. On the way there, Pannacotta Fugo accidentally falls on her as the team's car brakes and Guido Mista begs for mercy, giving the impression that Fugo fell on her to grope her. Nothing comes out of it however.
The team retrieve the turtle Coco Jumbo which serves as a handy mobile hideout and board the first train to Florence. However, the team is followed by La Squadra members Prosciutto and Pesci. Prosciutto's The Grateful Dead ages everyone in the train but she is relatively unscathed because she is a girl and thanks to her fresh drink. Mista is sent out to take out the enemy, holding an ice cube to resist the aging. Trish tries to preserve Narancia by using the remaining ice cube on him but Bucciarati tells her to keep it for herself since she is under their protection. At the end of the battle, Pesci takes the turtle and makes Trish come out of it while he attempts to kill the other members. Though Bucciarati defeats him, Trish is left confused as to the strange abilities and beings coming from the fight. Bucciarati takes this as a sign of her Stand slowly manifesting, beginning with a large claw mark left in the ground.
Trish spends some time brooding by herself because Bucciarati doesn't answer her questions. At one point, the Stand Baby Face manages to infiltrate the turtle and attack her. She is turned into a cabinet while Baby Face also incapacitates Bucciarati and then fights Giorno Giovanna, who fortunately manages to defeat Baby Face and also assassinate the User, Melone. The gang then successfully brings her to Venice without further danger to herself.
The Boss' treachery
When the gang finally arrives at San Giorgio Maggiore church and must part with Trish, she is ultimately left unnerved by the whole experience. Escorted by Bucciarati, Trish's growing anxiety causes her to shy away from the elevator leading to the bell tower, scared at what kind of person her father might be. Bucciarati, having only known his own loving parents, is confident that the Boss would love his daughter, and reassures Trish that she'll simply be given a new identity to live out the rest of her life in peace. Though Trish initially denies her nervousness, she eventually holds Bucciarati's hand for comfort during the elevator ride. However, before anyone could notice, she is knocked unconscious and has her hand severed by her own father, and then abducted.
As Bucciarati realizes, the Boss of Passione only wanted Trish brought to him so he could kill her himself and erase all of his ties with the past. Bucciarati nearly dies from fatal injuries sustained trying to keep Trish safe, but the guidance and assistance of Giorno give him the resolve to escape the Boss with her unconscious body. Upon regaining consciousness and having her hand reattached, Trish quickly learns that her father would go to any length to preserve his own secrecy, including murdering the people related to him. Bucciarati and his gang (with the exception of Fugo) would betray Passione in order to protect Trish and defeat their former boss.
Finding her father's past
Team Bucciarati have lunch at a restaurant. Trish comes out to tell her allies that her father met her mother Donatella in Sardegna, which may help them find his identity. Moreover, she affirms her determination to find out about her past and not stand on the sidelines. Narancia is attacked by the shark Stand Clash, then by Talking Head which forces him to lie. Trish stays safe in the turtle during the battle and the team eventually leaves Venice for its airport.
Notorious B.I.G & Spice Girl
On a plane bound for Sardegna the group is attacked by the invulnerable Stand Notorious B.I.G. Mista and Narancia are severely injured and incapacitated, while Giorno sacrifices both of his hands in an attempt to get rid of the Stand, leaving him unable to use Gold Experience's abilities. When all the gang but Trish retreats into the cabin, she is attacked by Notorious B.I.G once more. Though she tries to escape, she notices that one of the ladybug brooches from Giorno's outfit is on the floor and slowly turning into a hand. Trish realizes that if Giorno is to ever use his Stand power again, she has to protect the hand from the enemy. Though anxious and scared, she tries to reach the hand by using the reclining seats of the plane to distract the motion-detecting Stand. Notorious B.I.G ends up grabbing her by the boot, causing her to panic.
However, the boot almost unnaturally slides off of Trish's foot without letting the Stand touch her. Slightly confused, she leaves a claw mark on an armrest where she sets her hand down and begins to hear a feminine voice speak to her, telling her that she's chosen to protect Giorno and the others. A new Stand appears before Trish, introducing itself as her own: Spice Girl. Thanks to Spice Girl's ability to soften things, Trish manages to temporarily stun and wound Notorious B.I.G. Grabbing the brooch and retreating into the plane's back closet against Spice Girl's advice, Trish stops Notorious B.I.G by softening the door but the it still breaks through. Fortunately, Spice Girl softens a clock when the Stand breaches the door and the moving hands act as a distraction for Notorious B.I.G, who attacks the clock but cannot break it. Spice Girl attacks the enemy Stand by stabbing it with a pipe while it's distracted. It seems that the enemy Stand has been killed for good.
Trish exits the closet and heads for the cockpit but Notorious B.I.G manages to reach and consume the plane's engine, sending the plane into a sharp descent and consuming so much energy it invades the entire backside of the plane. Making a run to the front of the plane with the enemy Stand chasing after her, Trish uses Spice Girl to rapidly punch and break off the pilot's cabin, with Notorious B.I.G in the rest of the plane exploding. A small remain attaches itself to Abbacchio, causing Bucciarati to use Sticky Fingers' arm to get it off. Trish uses Spice Girl to sever that arm, sending Notorious B.I.G into the sea as she bids it an "Arrivederci".
From Sardegna to Rome
Trish remains safe in the turtle for the entirety of the team's presence on La Costa Smeralda. Although Abbacchio is killed without warning, he leaves a mold of the Boss' face and fingerprints behind for his teammates. This attracts the attention of an unknown ally. Thanks to that ally, she eventually learns of her father's name: Diavolo. The team and the mysterious hacker agree to meet in Rome in the Colosseum. During Green Day's first attack, Trish is slightly wounded by the mold created by the stand, while Narancia was the most affected by the stand's ambush. Trish expresses her discontent at the fact that Bucciarati acted cold towards Narancia who was badly injured, resulting in a moment of wisdom and discernment of the latter who considers that the leader had the adequate reaction and even allowed his life to be saved. A concerned Trish replies that Bucciarati is acting cold towards the group as a whole, implicitly expressing her urge for Bucciarati's attention. Narancia understands it and construes her emotions as a mark of her growing feelings for Bucciarati but advises her to differ the exploration of her feelings for another time, as their situation is not suited for such considerations. Somehow, the team manages to defeat Cioccolata and Secco although Bucciarati gets separated from the group.
The Battle against Diavolo
Arriving at the Colosseum, Trish senses Diavolo's presence and becomes paranoid, warning the gang of him. Suddenly, Chariot Requiem, Jean Pierre Polnareff's empowered Stand gone wild, manipulates the souls in Rome and puts everyone to sleep. When Trish wakes up, she realizes that she's in Mista's body and is appalled at his hygiene. Polnareff himself appears to explain them everything and their goal shifts to pursuing Chariot Requiem and take the Arrow. They also reunite with Bucciarati in Diavolo's body but Chariot Requiem shows that it can manipulate Stands to protect itself. Mista is almost shot in the head by his own Sex Pistols and Trish has to soften the bullet to save him. Worse, Diavolo is still present and manages to kill Narancia without being noticed. The team spend a short time mourning for their fallen comrade, then continues to pursue Chariot.
Giorno eventually works out that Diavolo's soul is cohabiting with one of his teammates; indeed Diavolo reveals himself in Mista's body and thus shares it with Trish's soul. King Crimson wrestles Spice Girl and takes control of Mista's body. Diavolo thus pursues Chariot Requiem, evading the team's attacks and almost seizing the Arrow. However, at a most crucial moment, when he tries to grab the arrow after having deflected some of Mista's bullets, Trish reveals herself conscious. Using her power, she reveals that she softened the bullets to make it look like they were blocked, and by undoing her ability, the bullets alongside their momentum are restored, shooting Diavolo through the hand and knocking the Arrow far away from him. Trish then tells her father that she'll overcome the fate she inherited, and will no longer cower or flee.
In a moment of complete hatred for his daughter, Diavolo has King Crimson punch Spice Girl through the abdomen, which sends Mista's body flying through the air in the direction of the Arrow. Trish's soul begins to ascend due to the fatal blow, and Diavolo has put himself on the path for capturing the Arrow. In the nick of time, Bucciarati sacrifices himself to destroy Chariot Requiem, allowing her soul to return her body and save her life while forcing Diavolo's soul away. Regaining consciousness, Trish warns Giorno that Diavolo is trying to escape, which inadvertently leads him to attack Giorno to save his own pride after hearing the comment. However, Giorno has already pierced Gold Experience with the Arrow. Trish then bears witness to the awakening of Giorno's newfound Stand, known as Gold Experience Requiem, and watches as her father and his seemingly invincible Stand ability face defeat.
Skeptical that Diavolo might still be alive after being sent into the nearby river, Trish urges Giorno to look for him. However, he diffuses her worries with confidence that Diavolo's fate is final. She accepts the response then decides to go with Mista back in order to see the Colosseum and look for Bucciarati unknowing of his death. Giorno and Polnareff know of Bucciarati's fate but the reactions of Trish and Mista at this discovery remain unknown.

She mentions in a radio interview that she had been on stage for most of her life, accompanied by her late mother and manager. She gives thanks to "an amazing group of people" that helped her through her hiatus, referencing her time with Team Bucciarati.
A bonus chapter features Trish visiting Bucciarati's grave and incidentally meeting Bucciarati's mother. She recalls the moment the heroes discovered that Bucciarati was dead all along but Giorno persuades Mista to let him live. Giorno tells her that this is now as far as she'll go with the gang. Trish and Bucciarati's mother discuss about Bucciarati's demise and Trish at the least tells the Bruno died without regrets and what she thought of Bruno. The both of them cry together over Bucciarati's grave.

Trish is briefly mentioned in some texts during Part 5 Story Mode.
For the English localization, her Stand, Spice Girl, was renamed Spicy Lady.
As a Stand User, Trish is one of many characters with wildly varied abilities that grant her uniqueness in battle.
A trait exclusive to Trish is that she is immune to being wall-splat; at any time she is knocked into a wall, Spice Girl's ability will instantly activate and cause her to recover immediately, making it more difficult for her opponents to combo her. Spice Girl will also trap larger stage objects, making them repel opponents that touch them. Another unique ability Trish possesses allows objects thrown by her to ricochet off walls up to 3 times; if Trish is locked on, the object will ricochet towards her target, otherwise flying at the nearest opponent.
- Style Action - I made it softer!: Trish summons Spice Girl to punch the ground, creating a softened spot indicated by a pink glow. Opponents that step on these areas take damage and are bounced high into the air or into nearby walls. Trish may have up to 3 traps active at a given time.
- Being this soft means I'm even more unbreakable than diamond!: Spice Girl softens and grabs the ground, pulling it up and creating a temporary shield.

- Spice Girl!: Spice Girl unleashes a barrage of 11 punches, sending opponents caught flying on the final hit.
- With the strength of a thousand fists!: Spice Girl pulls out a metal pipe and swings it down. If it connects, the opponent is knocked into the ground, where the Stand will proceed to stab them using the end of the pipe, before knocking them away. This attack can also hit opponents that are down. If the activating button is rapidly pressed, the attack can be extended to make Spice Girl stab the pipe into the target up to 4 more times. Trish is invincible once the attack connects.
- EX - Being this soft means I'm even more unbreakable than diamond!: The skill activates instantly.
- EX - Spice Girl!: The skill activates quicker and Trish can cancel the attack into another skill while Spice Girl is punching, including the normal version of itself.
- Dual Heat Attack - WAAAAAAAANNABEEEEEEEEEE: Spice Girl softens the ground where the opponent is standing, shaking them off-balance. Using this opening, Trish charges at the opponent as her Stand delivers an uppercut, before punching them hard into the softened ground. As the target is bounced into the air, Trish jumps towards them and Spice Girl unleashes an upward barrage of punches while letting out its cry, finishing by punching them away.
