Personality & Character
As member of the Martian nobility, Trillram is quick to look down upon those of lower status such as Terran immigrants. He also looks down on the native Terrans as well, which ultimately led to his downfall.
During Count Saazbaum's speech to rally the Orbital Knights to resolutely bring down the hammer of righteousness in response to the atrocity of assassinating Princess Asseylum Vers Allusia, Sir Trillram is seen filing his nails while listening on in the veranda of Castle Cruhteo. (AZ: "Princess of VERS")
He convinces Cruhteo to plant his flag at the scene of Princess Asseylums tragic death to solidify the righteousness of the VERS cause of which he already meant to do. This prompts Trillram to ask for himself to be sent in place in order to repay hospitality he had imposed on for many years. Cruhteo delegates to him, the apprehension of the areas leaders and learn of the details surrounding Princess Asseylums death.
Later on in the Nilokeras he is being transported to his destination by Slaine Troyard in a Sky Carrier. Along the way they encounter an enemy formation of F-22 Raptors, which are destroyed by Trillram due to Slaine's apprehensiveness.
In reality, his aim is to silent the Martian conspirators who took part in the princess' assassination. He managed to murder all of them with his mecha, except Rayet Areash, one of the conspirator's daughter, who was rescued by a UE evacuation APC. Since Rayet was alive, Trillram had to stay in Shinawara to kill her. (AZ: "Beyond the Horizon")
While pursuing her, he meets and fights Inaho's group, who ultimately defeat him and destroys his Kataphrakt, he also finds out that the princess is still alive and that his faction's assassination plot had failed, putting him in a state of panic.
He was soon killed by Slaine Troyard, after Trillram, in a state of panic, revealed that his faction organized the assassination of the princess. Slaine then proceeded to steal the pistol in Trillram's belt, Trillram turns around to see Slaine pointing the pistol at him, Trillram thinking Slaine didn't have the courage to pull the trigger orders him to give the gun back before Slaine shoots him in the stomach. While on his knees in pain, Trillram threatens Slaine that he will regret this before Slaine finishes him off by shooting him multiple times in the chest. (AZ: "The Children's Echelon")
He had been a guest of Cruhteos for many years. This gained him enough trust to be sent out into battle at Trillrams request. Cruhteo later regretted the loss of Trillram who is said to have fallen in battle, having been caught in the meteor bombardment launched at his territory.
Trillram is disappointed that Slaines upbringing is sorely lacking. He goes on to educate him in the joys of the battlefield by killing Slaines fellow Terran countrymen. After his defeat, Slaine informs Trillram that Princess Asseylum is still alive, but he states that he wants her dead in order to keep his clan from being branded as traitors. While walking away Slaine takes Trillram's gun and shoots him to death in order to stop him.
Trillram informs Saazbaum of his progress, where as in Trillram states that he shall hunt down and finish of the remaining rat, who is Rayet Areash. Saazbaum then informs him that he shall conduct a meteor bombardment to blow the entire city to kingdom come if need be to keep the rat from escaping. Later on he asks Cruhteo how the war is going, where he's informed of Trillram's death. Out of suspicion, he asks if anyone witnessed his death in due part of him having informed Trillram of the bombardment before hand, so he would not have been caught unaware of it. Other than that he did not seem to miss him and never mentioned him afterward. Also he did not bring this up with Slaine although it is implied that he knows that Slaine had in fact killed him.
