Gloria is the only female Executive of the Holy Knights, soldiers from the Order of the Sword (a religious order that worships Sparda and fights to protect the world from demons). She was able to quickly ascend the ranks by bringing Sparda (the sword) along with her, and giving it to Sanctus. Because of her looks and this suspiciously quick promotion, many members of the Order spread negative rumors about her. However, they also recognize her acrobatic and combat skills.
Gloria is very flirtatious and sexually teasing.
To be added...'
When Lady informs Dante and Trish about the actions of the Order of the Sword, Trish takes the Sparda sword, leaves a lipstick message to Dante on the wall and goes outside the shop where she encounters and fights off some demons. With a little help from Lady, she leaves the scene. Trish eventually arrives to the city of Fortuna and joins the Order of the Sword by giving the Sparda sword to the Order's leader Sanctus and helping with the completion of the Savior, all while posing in an alternate form named "Gloria", and is made an Executive of the Holy Knights. Gloria uses this placement to spy on the Holy Knights but because of her looks and rapid promotion, she enjoyed a somewhat negative reception by the other members of the Order and despite the disguise, Sanctus would eventually learn of her true identity.
At some point after this, Gloria meets Nero, who is tasked with finding and capturing Dante, on his way through a supernatural blizzard to Fortuna Castle. After some exposition, the two of them go their separate ways. Gloria is later seen in a meeting where the captain of the Holy Knights Credo informs her, Sanctus and some other members about the current situation of Dante's whereabouts. When the Order's scientist Agnus burst in and informs everyone about Nero's demonic powers, Sanctus gives his request to Credo to apprehend Nero. Credo obliges but questions who shall be responsible for Dante's capture, to which Gloria volunteers for the task. Trish later discards her Gloria disguise after the second battle between Dante and Nero.
While Trish/Gloria is unplayable in the original version of the game (appearing only as a story character), Trish appears playable in the Special Edition version. Her Gloria disguise is playable as well as an alternate costume.
