- ~ The Editor on Trixie Grimm, from The Inside Story
Trixie Grimm was the great-aunt of Sabrina and Daphne Grimm. Being a a member of the Grimm Family, Trixie was actively involved in Ferryport Landing's Everafter community as she took on the family business. Like most Grimms, she kept a journal that detailed her exploits, particularly with the Book of Everafter.
Trixie was born to Josef Grimm and Anna Grimm in 1975, the same year as her sister, Vesta Grimm. It can be inferred that they are twins. Trixie had an elder brother named Peter Grimm, who was the great-grandfather of Sabrina and Daphne Grimm.
After meeting The Editor, Sabrina, Daphne and Puck learn that Trixie had previously disrupted the events in the Book of Everafter. However, Trixie is introduced by Daphne as their great aunt, being their grandfather Basil's sister-in-law]]. This is at odds with the family tree in A Very Grimm Guide, in which Trixie is shown to be the aunt of Basil, being the sister of Peter Grimm who is Basil's father. It is possible that the family tree is inaccuarate, but Relda Grimm's accounts of her aunt-in-law suggests that Trixie is actually a blood member of The Grimm Family|the Grimm family and not just part of the family through her marriage to Edwin Grimm - Basil's only brother and therefore the only way that Trixie could have been his sister-in-law.
Not much is known about Trixie, but various accounts claim she lived a lawless life that involved painting, getting married and then getting remarried many times. She had notable achievements within the Everafter comunity, such as making a treaty between centaurs and cyclops, helping Little Bo Peep find her sheep, and had also experienced life inside the Book of Everafter.
In her journal, Trixie wrote a lot about the Book of Everafter and its origins, as well about how the Book was linked to actual history by magic. Trixie wrote about the Editor, the person in charge of the Book of Everafter who meanwhile lived in it as well. After creating him, Trixie wrote that she was "startled by his bad attitude and suspected there would come a day when he would become difficult." Because of her prediction, she placed a key in her journal that led directly to the Editor for future use.
The name Trixie is a diminutive of Beatrix, meaning 'bringer of joy'. It's origin is unknown.
