This page is about the animal companion from Campaign One: Vox Machina. For the one-shot PC version of this character, see Trinket (Honey Heist).

Trinket is a bear and animal companion to Vex'ahlia. As a ranger companion, he is controlled by his ranger, Laura Bailey, with assistance and communication from the Dungeon Master, Matthew Mercer.



Trinket is a large brown bear.[7] He wears armor plating that was harvested from a bulette by Grog and reforged by a dwarf blacksmith named Karen in Emon.



Vax took to the cities, stealing small trinkets and learning the ways of the thief, while Vex kept to the woods. She preferred the isolation. Always the keen observer, she learned to hunt and to track, to spy and to shoot. And through a series of fateful events, earned herself a companion in the form of a bear—her own stolen Trinket—to fight alongside her and protect her fiercely. Also, he is adorable—and gives expert massages.
Vex'ahlia's intro[8]

Vex and Trinket became companions when Vex placed too much trust in poachers and ended up being captured by them. She managed to escape from the poachers' cage and eliminate two of them. She then found Trinket's mother, who was badly injured due to the poachers harvesting from her tortured but still-living body. Vex put the bear out of her misery before finding a young Trinket also in the cage. She rescued the cub and they have since been close friends.[4]

Kith & Kin[]

Around 807 PD,[9] Trinket accompanied Vax'ildan and Vex'ahlia as they travelled to Westruun. The trio fought giant spiders in the Bramblewood Forest along the way, and Trinket accompanied Vex'ahlia to hunt dinner that evening.[7][10]

The twins spent a few nights in the city, leaving Trinket behind in the Bramblewood.[11] They collected him as they made their way to Jorenn Village to complete a contract for the Clasp, and found him fishing in a stream.[11]

A few nights later, Trinket and the twins camped just outside of Jorenn Village with some other travellers, when they were attacked by ash walkers.[12] The humanoids (except for Vax'ildan) in the camp were rescued by riders from the Shadewatch, and Trinket followed them; they eventually reached Jorenn Village.[13] Inside the village, Trinket and Vex'ahlia met Wick, the right-hand-man to Shademaster Derowen, and Aswin, Derowen's daughter, who immediately became enamoured with Trinket.[14] Vex'ahlia left Trinket to protect Aswin while she joined the archers on the palisades.[15] Trinket and Vex'ahlia were given a room in the Shade Hall as thanks for their aid, with a cot set up for the bear.[16] The next morning, Aswin crept into their room to see Trinket again.[17] She fed him fruit, and Vex left them together in the room while she went to find Derowen.[18]

Over the next few days, Vex and Trinket searched the area around Jorenn for any sign of Vax'ildan—who had been taken in by the outlaw miners led by Thorn—and spent their evenings at the Shade Hall with Derowen, Aswin, and Wick.[19] One night, Aswin had a night terror about the ash walkers, and Derowen, Vex'ahlia, and Trinket rushed into her room to comfort her.[20] To help her calm down and fall back asleep, Vex'ahlia told Aswin a sanitized version of the story of how she and Trinket met, in which the poachers that kidnapped her looked monstrous (instead of like regular people), Trinket inspired her to break free, and Vax'ildan showed up to help them fight the poachers; she also omitted the part involving Trinket's mother.[21] Trinket stayed with Aswin for a little while that night.[22]

Trinket remained in Jorenn Village with Wick and Aswin while Vex'ahlia went to the mines with Derowen. They returned with Vax'ildan, and Trinket greeted him with a bear hug and flurry of licks.[23] Vax was surprised to see that his sister had left Trinket in someone else's care, instead of leaving him on his own.[23]

The next day, Vex and Trinket followed Vax as he headed back to the mines.[24] Trinket was upset about having to walk through an illusory boulder to enter, but did it at Vex's insistence.[25] Thorn led Trinket and Vex'ahlia into the main cavern so that they could meet the rest of the miners; the children in particular were fascinated by the bear.[26] After they shared a meal with the miners, the Shadewatch returned to the mines. Trinket and the twins escaped through a side tunnel.[27] They tried to camp in the hills, but were interrupted by ash walkers emerging from the mines.[28] Trinket attacked one, but it didn't retaliate; the twins realized that the walkers were only interested in attacking Jorenn Village.[29] They decided to split up: Vex'ahlia and Trinket would enter Jorenn from the main gate, while Vax'ildan would sneak in through the miners' gate.[30] Trinket and Vex helped protect another group of travellers from the ash walkers, then entered Jorenn Village with them.[31] They were allowed to stay at the Shade Hall again, but in the morning, they were brought to see Derowen, who was suspicious of Vex's actions.[32] As the confrontation became violent, with Derowen stabbing the imprisoned Thorn, Aswin entered the room, and was delighted to see Vex and Trinket.[33] Vex'ahlia asked Trinket to take Aswin to Wick, and they left the room, leaving Vex alone to fight the Shademaster and the ash walkers that soon entered the town.[34] Instead of going to find Wick or to her own room, Aswin went to collect Vex'ahlia's weapons.[35] Trinket chased after her as she stumbled out into the battle against the ash walkers and attempted to pull her away by the shirt.[35] Vex intervened, put the girl on Trinket's back, and sent them inside; Wick sent two guards, Kela and Yorn, as well.[36]

A few days later, Trinket accompanied the twins, Thorn, and Wick as they walked into the hills.[37] While the twins and Thorn went further into the hills, Trinket went fishing in a stream.[38] He and the twins then began their journey back to Westruun.[38] When they returned to Westruun a few days later, they again left Trinket outside the city, and collected him on their way out, bound for Stilben.[39]

Before the stream[]

Trinket was nearly killed when Grog attempted to disarm a room full of traps by hitting the bear on his backside with the flat side of an axe, causing Trinket to charge straight into the traps, triggering all of them. Vex (and Laura) was very angry with Grog (and Travis) afterwards.[40][41]

Campaign One: Vox Machina[]

Trinket accompanied Vex'ahlia on all her travels with Vox Machina. The group often struggled to get around on their Carpet of Flying or sneak through tight caverns with the bear in tow, leading Scanlan Shorthalt to develop an animosity to the bear. This changed when the group found Raven's Slumber in the Sunken Tomb and gave it to Vex'ahlia so that Trinket could be carried in the magical jewel.[42] Trinket became even more formidable after scaring off a Spirit Bear in the Feywild and gaining the ability to benefit from Vex's Hunter's Mark and immediately enter Raven's Slumber upon falling unconscious.[43]

Arc 1: Kraghammer and Vasselheim[]

"Arrival at Kraghammer" (1x01)
As Vox Machina split up to tend to various activities in Kraghammer, Trinket accompanied Vex'ahlia and Vax'ildan to scout Greyspine Manor. The trio were noticed by a pair of guards however, and to avoid any confrontation, Vex'ahlia asked Trinket to return to the Iron Hearth Tavern where Vox Machina had purchased rooms earlier that day. [44]

Later that night, as Vox Machina reconvened in their rooms, Trinket found himself coerced by a group of drunk and rowdy dwarves into participating in the tavern fighting ring. As he prepared to square off against an older looking dwarf, Vex'ahlia leapt into the ring to attempt to take the dwarf's place. When that failed, Keyleth filled the room with fog and ran up behind Trinket. She polymorphed Trinket into a small mouse, passed him off to Scanlan, and Wild Shaped herself into Trinket (though lacking his armor), taking his place. [45]

After the situation was defused with a combination of a bear performance and some free rounds for the locals, Vex'ahlia found Trinket a storage room to stay in, where he happily devoured a sack of dried meat.

"Glass and Bone" (1x08)
Trinket was polymorphed into a small cat and carried by Vex'ahlia as part of Vox Machina's plan to cross the sea of glass and bones in the caverns beneath Kraghammer. In combat with the 'stich monstrosity', Trinket and several members of the group were caught in an acidic cloud produced by the creature, knocking Trinket out of his polymorphed form and into the bones below.

Attempting to climb back onto the platform with the rest of the group, Trinket was struck by the creature again, and knocked unconscious. His body was held in a struggle between the animated bones and Keyleth's Grasping Vine, before the bones were eventually dispatched by Pike using her Mace of Disruption. Vex'ahlia revived Trinket using a healing potion.

"Skyward" (1x15)
Vex'ahlia and Trinket visited a blacksmith in Emon, looking to have the Bulette hide the group had harvested crafted into a new set of armor. Karin, the blacksmith, accepted the rush-order job to create the armor in two days, working with the provided materials, for 450 gold. Trinket had to leave his old armor behind as a reference, leaving him naked for the intervening period. [46]

The completed armor granted Trinket an additional +2 to his AC over his previous armor, and resistance to non-magical bludgeoning damage - as well as making him look like a 'roly-poly' (pill bug). The group theorized that Trinket might be able to perform a rolling attack.

"Hubris" (1x17)
During the fight with the Hydra in the Vesper Timberland, Trinket was hit by two consecutive Fireballs from Tiberius, knocking him unconscious immediately. After being revived by Keyleth, a charred but otherwise okay Trinket gave Tiberius an angry glare.

"Trial of the Take: Part 2" (1x19)
As the White Dragon Trial group planned their entrance into the White Dragon's lair, Zahra used her Beast Speech ability to discuss the situation with Trinket.

Zahra:  "Trinket, what are you feeling right now? What's going on? You seem very excited."
Trinket:  "I'll do whatever it takes to protect my Vex. If this creature tries anything, I will tear its throat from its head."
Zahra Hydris talks to Trinket [47]

Arc 2: The Briarwoods[]

"The Feast" (1x24)

Fan art of Vax'ildan and Keyleth tying bows and braids into Trinket's fur, by Wendy Sullivan Green.[art 2]

While a number of Vox Machina, including Vex'ahlia, travel to Kraghammer to wrap up some outstanding business, Vax'ildan and Keyleth spend several hours braiding Trinket's hair, weaving in flowers, and tying pink ribbons. On her return, Vex'ahlia finds Trinket's appearance cute - but does help the disgruntled bear tidy up.

Later, Vex'ahlia worked with Trinket to develop a combat technique for rolling through enemies, making use of his new armor.

"Gunpowder Plot" (1x31)
As Vox Machina, minus Scanlan, attacked Count Tylieri's mansion, Trinket joined Grog in storming the front door. Faced with an onslaught of arrows from the awaiting guards, Trinket fought side-by-side with Grog, eventually landing the killing blow on Tylieri by tearing his head from his shoulders. [48]

"Denouement" (1x35)
After being mentally compelled by Orthax to bite Pike, which he immediately regretted and apologised for, Trinket and Grog together landed the final blow on the shadow demon.

"Winter's Crest in Whitestone" (1x36)
As Whitestone hosted its first Winter's Crest festival for many years, Vex'ahlia attempted to enter Trinket into a pie-eating contest alongside herself and Vax'ildan. When the organizers refused to allow a bear to enter, Keyleth polymorphed Trinket into a large, hairy, human man.

In his human form, Trinket easily outlasted Vex'ahlia and Vax'ildan, who were both tapped out after the second pie. Vex'ahlia convinced a reluctant Trinket to continue past the third, and then fourth pie. With only one other competitor remaining, the fifth pie brought out contained meat and fish, which Vex'ahlia hoped would be more to Trinkets liking - but the final pie proved too much. Fortunately, a fifth pie was also too much for the other man, with Trinket declared a joint winner of the competition. [49]

Arc 3: The Chroma Conclave[]

"Desperate Measures" (1x40)
After Vox Machina released Galdric from Raven's Slumber, Vex'ahlia suggested that the device might be used to transport Trinket in times when he would otherwise be out of place, unable to move freely, or while the group was attempting to be stealthy.

After testing the magical device, Trinket conveyed to Keyleth that he didn't really remember being inside, but was mostly just feeling sick due to having consumed an ale-covered 'hamburger patty' of dry rations and rotten dark elf brain.

Vex'ahlia later attached the item to a chain so that she could wear it as an amulet.

"Hope" (1x56)
After fighting valiantly but being grievously wounded in the fight against Umbrasyl, Trinket joined the rest of Vox Machina in a cannonball contest in the hot spring inside Scanlan's Magnificent Mansion, before retiring to his and Vex'ahlia's room and consuming the chicken paste left in the bed there by Vax'ildan.

Later, as the group toured Westruun in the aftermath of the conflict, Vex'ahlia made sure to add Trinket to a sketch of Vox Machina drawn by a child on the Survivor's Legacy wall of remembrance, within the newly excavated sewers of the town.

"The Feywild" (1x59)
While travelling through the Feywild, Vex'ahlia asked Keyleth to help her learn to speak to animals so that she could talk to Trinket. Upon first conversing with him, Vex'ahlia hugged Trinket and broke into tears - however Trinket didn't seem to notice any difference, having been able to understand her the entire time.

The two spent the rest of that journey catching up on old times. In their conversation, Trinket commented that while he hated the Whitestone pie eating contest at the time, he now looked back on it as a fond memory. He however wasn't particularly happy about the time he had bows and braids tied through his hair.

"Heredity and Hats" (1x60)
As Vox Machina travelled through the Moonbrush Forest within the Feywild, they stopped to investigate a collection of ritual offerings in front of a large cave. Keyleth and Vex'ahlia became separated from the group when a large bear spirit emerged from the cave, the trees of the forest closing off the clearing they had been standing in.

The spirit, Orlan, angered by the disturbance of the shrine, demanded an offering. He recognized Keyleth's druidic nature, but turned threateningly to Vex'ahlia, who released Trinket from her necklace.

Facing the enormous 20 foot tall spirit, Trinket fought ferociously to defend Vex'ahlia, to little effect. Orlan was however impressed by Trinket's loyalty.

Orlan:  "You walk with this one. Is she your charge?"
Trinket:  "She is everything. Her life is mine. You take her, you take me, or we walk on and remember you as a kind soul."
Orlan:  "Very well. If you are at her side, I take your charge, as well."
Trinket faces off against Orlan [50]

Orlan in turn granted Trinket and Vex'ahlia a number of boons, which would aid them in combat in the future.

With the spirit leaving in peace, Trinket returned to Vex'ahlia, licking her face and helping her to her feet.

Arc 4: Taryon Darrington[]

"Tangled Depths" (1x88)
In Vox Machina's preparations for the final trial of Keyleth's Aramente, Trinket was granted water breathing and enjoyed a Heroes' feast of dessert snacks. The group discussed the possibility of transforming Trinket into a Killer Whale, which he reluctantly agreed to, trusting Vex'ahlia.

The next day, though initially uncomfortable with the process of breathing underwater, he fought bravely in combat with the Kraken, landing several hits while being grappled and tossed about beneath the waters. He was eventually knocked unconscious by the Kraken's lightning, returning safely to Vex'ahlia's amulet.

"Bats Out of Hell" (1x93)
Trinket lead the charge as Vox Machina attacked Utugash in his stronghold. Though his attacks were of limited effectiveness due to the devil's resistances, Trinket was the first of the group to detect the presence of the two imps that were activating traps within the room, alerting the group through Tova, who, in her werebear form, was able to understand the bear.

During the fight, Trinket became trapped in a cage, to Vex'ahlia's dismay, but he was quickly rescued through the use of Raven's Slumber.

"Jugs and Rods" (1x94)
As Vex'ahlia set out on her Grey Hunt trial, Trinket was the only member of Vox Machina allowed to accompany her, as her trusted companion. He sat with her at the Sun Tree as she waited for a vision of their quarry, before setting out into the forest at her side.

The two fought well as a pair, with Trinket landing a number of heavy hits against the Grey Render as it attempted to chase Vex'ahlia around the battlefield, and enabling her sneak attacks against the creature.

Finally victorious, they returned to Whitestone, with Trinket carrying the immensely heavy severed hand of the creature back as a trophy to prove their success.

"One Year Later..." (1x95)
During Vox Machina's year away, Trinket stayed with Vex'ahlia in Whitestone, enjoying the animal sanctuary she had created for him and ingratiating himself to the citizens of the town.

The group reunited for a short vacation to Dalen's Closet. There, as a result of some confusion around an ongoing prank war, Vex'ahlia set Trinket to chase and pin down Vax'ildan, as revenge for his apparent destruction of her and her husband's room. On her orders, a smug Trinket peed on the helpless Vax, who was mostly just happy to be reunited with his friends.

Arc 5: Vecna[]

"The Chapter Closes" (1x115)
Battered and bruised from the encounter with Vecna, Trinket immediately rushed to care for the just-resurrected Velora, licking the dirt and dust from her face. Vex'ahlia placed the exhausted girl onto Trinket's back, where she immediately fell asleep.

After Vax'ildan departed with the Raven Queen, Trinket comforted Vex'ahlia. Later in the evening, Vex'ahlia sent him to spend the night with Keyleth, to comfort her on her first night alone without her partner. Trinket graciously tolerated her snot and tears and she sobbed into his belly.


After the defeat of Vecna, Lady Vex'ahlia (as Baroness of Whitestone) declared Trinket to be the official mascot of Whitestone. Trinket would be memorialized for centuries after as "The Wonder Bear". An annual festival was also begun to celebrate Trinket, "with bears everywhere" as Vex put it.[51] Vex'ahlia constructed Lord Trinket's Public Park on the northwest side of Whitestone, where a marble statue of Trinket in his armour stands proudly.[52]

In or before 832 PD, Trinket fathered a cub named Charlie, who is a playmate of Vex'ahlia and Percival's children.[53] Trinket himself has slowed down in his older years but remains by Vex'ahlia's side as a member of the de Rolo family.[5]

In 843 PD Trinket was still in Whitestone with Charlie and another bear, possibly Charlie's mother and Trinket's partner.[54][55]

The Legend of Vox Machina[]

Character information[]


  • Skills: Perception[3]


In "The Feast" (1x24), Vex taught Trinket a rolling attack that she named "Cannonball". As a trampling alternative to Multiattack, Trinket runs forward and curls into a ball in his segmented bulette armor, crashing through enemies in front of him that are his size or smaller, dealing bludgeoning damage to any that are hit.[56] Trinket rolls a melee attack roll against each enemy in the path. Enemies that are not successfully hit by the ability may take opportunity attacks against Trinket if he leaves their melee range as part of the movement of the attack.


Fan art of Trinket protecting Vex'ahlia and Keyleth from a Feywild bear spirit in "Heredity and Hats" (1x60), by J.T. Arndt.[art 3]

After receiving a boon from the bear spirit Orlan, Trinket gained several abilities. He now gets a damage boost from Vex'ahlia's Hunter's Mark; he can use his Primal Fury once per short rest to gain advantage on attacks as well as critical attacks on natural rolls of 19 or 20; and if he falls unconscious within 100 feet of Vex and Raven's Slumber then he is immediately transported inside the crystal and stabilized.[57]

As a brown bear, Trinket has Keen Smell, granting him advantage on Perception checks that rely on smell.[3]

Notable items[]

Trinket is outfitted with armor plating that was harvested from a bulette by Grog and reforged by a dwarf blacksmith named Karen in Emon.[58]

Appearances and mentions[]


  • Trinket is a grizzly bear.[60]
  • On more than one occasion fans and players alike have questioned Trinket's longevity, given that the bear is dearly loved by Vex (and Laura), and the idea of ​​him dying before the ranger (since grizzly bears live three decades at most) is very sad. The general agreement, which Matt himself has supported, is that Trinket will have a particularly long life, living as long as his half-elven companion and foster mother.
    • This bears some similarity to the Primal Companion option of the Beast Master subclass, which allows the ranger's companion to be a magical entity that cannot die in the physical sense like an ordinary animal.[61]
  • When a fan asked about all the names of Trinket's cubs, Laura confirmed that Charlie had been named after her old dog, who had been, in fact, Trinket's formal player during the home game period of Campaign One.[62]
  • Trinket also appears in an alternate version as Matthew Mercer's player character in "Trinket's Honey Heist" and "Honey Heist 2: Electric Beargaloo".
  • Despite having a Charisma score of 7, Trinket has proven on multiple occasions to be quite a charismatic orator; most notably during his speech to Orlan in "Heredity and Hats" (1x60) where he convinced the fey entity to not harm Vex'ahlia and Keyleth.
  • Scanlan has confused Trinket with a female bear several times.
  • Whenever Trinket falls unconscious, he is immediately transported back into the Raven's Slumber Crystal. Due to this, fans have jokingly made reference to the Pokémon franchise (more notably: the Poké Ball capture device).
  • Characters played by Travis Willingham and Liam O'Brien make passing mentions of Trinket in the 2015 video game Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell.[63][64] As the game's release predates "Arrival at Kraghammer" (1x01) by over a month, these seem to have been in-jokes by the actors in reference to their then-ongoing original home game.
