|— Trixie to Lucifer|
in "Is This Really How It's Going To End?!"
Beatrice Espinoza, better known as Trixie, is a character in Lucifer. She is the only daughter of Chloe Decker and Detective Dan Espinoza. She is an exuberant, intelligent, happy young lady who loves meeting new people, is not the slightest bit shy, and loves hugs. Trixie is a dedicated chocolate cake lover. Upon their first meeting, she develops a liking towards Lucifer Morningstar and befriends the Devil along with his former assistant, Mazikeen.
Her parents are Chloe Decker and Dan Espinoza. They separated when she was seven, and got divorced when she was eight. She is never shown with feelings of distress over this, rather she acts very adult about the situation. In some cases she even manages to use the other parent as a basis for a bribe regarding whoever she is with.
Throughout the Series
In the "Pilot", Lucifer first meets Trixie at her school, whilst following a hot mother, when he loses his quarry, he ends up sitting by the principal’s office and opening a lighter. The little girl beside him says he's not supposed to smoke there and that her mother was a police officer. Seeing an opportunity, he says he knows her mother and asked the reason as to why she was in trouble, Trixie replies that the girl made a fake Snapchat account and made fun of Trixie, so she kicked her in the "no-no touch touch square". Lucifer smiles and tells her "well played." He then tells the mean girl that there was a special section in Hell for bullies and to have fun. He then flashed Devil eyes at her and she began screaming. When Trixie and Lucifer parted outside the school, she tells her father Lucifer is funny, and then tell Lucifer "it was nice meeting you!" When Chloe says Trixie likes him, he responds, "what's not to like?"
She hugs him delightedly when they meet in her mother's hospital room at the end of the episode, and the uncomfortable Devil deposits the child in Chloe's bed.
In "Lucifer, Stay. Good Devil.", her mom finally tells her about the Hot Tub High School film, and, to her surprise, Trixie had already seen it and states that she enjoyed the part where Chloe's character vomits on the cute guy.
"The Would-Be Prince of Darkness" has Chloe researching hypnotism to try and explain Lucifer to herself, and Trixie asks if its homework. Her mother explains that she's seen Lucifer do things she can't explain. A delighted Trixie asks if her friend is a magician.
In "Manly Whatnots", when Chloe came home after shooting Lucifer, Trixie compared her action to the boy Noah in her class, who kept throwing French fries at her at lunch, and that meant Chloe "must really like" Lucifer.
In "Pops", Trixie gets upset after her mother and grandmother begin arguing over her. So she steals her mother’s phone and uses it to order an Uber and goes to Lux. In her search for Lucifer, she finds Maze behind the bar and strikes up a conversation. When Maze asks her what she wants to be, rather than focusing on what other people want her to be, she reveals her ambitious career choice: to be the first President of Mars. Maze counts Trixie as her first friend from that point, and informs Linda she has at last made a friend.
In "A Good Day to Die" she meets Amenadiel for the first time, whom Lucifer has tasked with watching Chloe. She asks him why there are bad people in the world and he tells her he doesn't know, but that there are lots of good people, and she decides he is one of them, "like a guardian angel" and gives him a hug.
In "Deceptive Little Parasite", Chloe, Lucifer, and Dan investigate a murder at an exclusive private school. Lucifer offers to drive Trixie to school so Chloe won't be late meeting Dan. Lucifer then drives her to the school under investigation, when Trixie held his hand and he objected, she asked if her really wanted to sell the deception, then introduces herself as "Trixie Morningstar". The two then join an in-progress class where the students are encouraged to share their feelings, good or bad. Trixie shares that she is sad “because my mommy almost died. Her job is scary. But she has helped so many other people with their problems, I don’t want her to worry about mine. So I pretend I’m okay.” At now eight years old, Trixie is situationally aware and knows that her mother has a high stress job that requires her to solve a lot of problems for a lot of people. She does not want her mom to come home after having to help other people all day, just to have to worry about her problems as well. Chloe later speaks to Trixie about it and the two agree to talk to each other.
"Mr & Mrs Mazikeen Smith" has her trying to stow away in Maze's luggage when the demon is chasing a bounty in Canada. When she is discovered, she says she can't let Maze go without backup. Finally she allows that if Maze takes her stuffed toy Ms Alien, she should be okay.
In "High School Poppycock", Maze is at odds with Amenadiel, so when he drops by the home she shares with Chloe, she has Trixie open the door and send him away. When Trixie asks Maze why she does not want to see him. Maze reveals it is because he has lied to her, prompting Trixie to share some wisdom: “Mommy says that sometimes people are just scared to tell the truth. Maybe they need a little help.”
Once again, Trixie is proving she is wise beyond her years, and that kids do pay attention to what is going on with their parents and are always listening. Despite Maze taking a sharp left turn with this advice, it was well intentioned.
In "The Last Heartbreak," ironically she has her heart broken when she overhears and angry and acting out Maze tell Dan that "I am sick of your goody two shoes ex-wife and that stupid little brat of yours" after Dan calls her on sending a pan of pot brownies in to school with Trixie. Trixie turns and runs away in tears.
In "The Angel of San Bernadino," she reminds her mother she could use her credit card fairly easily since she has become pretty good at forging her signature. She also notes that Chloe has been very happy of late and asks if Pierce is the reason why.
She is shown to be still upset with Maze in "Anything Pierce Can Do I Can Do Better" when Maze returns to the apartment to talk to Chloe. When Trixie emerges from her bedroom and Maze says hey, she immediately turns her back and goes back inside shutting the door. Chloe says it may take her some time to forgive.
In "Everything's Okay", upon Chloe's return to LA, a remorseful Maze asks to see Trixie. Chloe claims that Trixie is still upset with her and does not want to see her. Maze believes this, and when she sees Trixie at the police station later she avoids talking to her, only for Trixie to notice her and immediately run to her and make amends. Mazethen realizes Chloe was trying to keep Trixie from her now that she knew Maze was a demon.
In "Devil Is as Devil Does", Trixie learns from Chloe that Lucifer is "going through something" and decides she needs to help him out, and walks in on him and Eve at the penthouse. Upon meeting Eve, she is immediately distrustful and interrogates her, to ensure she has the best intentions and is the friend her buddy Lucifer needs. When assassins arrive to kill Lucifer, Eve immediately moves protect Trixie and an enraged Lucifer deals with the would-be killers. After the situation is sorted out, Lucifer assures Chloe that he would do anything to protect Trixie.
In "Is this Really How it's Going to End?", after Dan's death from wounds received, she begs her mother to go in and get Dan up, that it's time to come home, then begs Lucifer to tell her that Dan's death was a lie, and if he told her she knew it would be true, he could only say, "My dear, sweet child, I can't," then she and Chloe collapsed and cried.
In "My Best Fiend's Wedding", Trixie attends Maze and Eve's wedding. Rory finds her at the punch bowl and asks Trixie if she still spikes the punch, confusing Trixie as she has no idea who Rory is. She does tell her that she loves Lucifer, confusing Rory.
In "Goodbye, Lucifer", Dan's ghost, possessing the body of his killer Vincent Le Mec, visits Trixie at summer camp, pretending to a friend of her father's, calling himself Belios. By sharing his knowledge of Trixie, Dan earns her trust and expresses his pride and love for his daughter and apologizes for leaving her so soon. Dan tells Trixie that he's sorry that he never got to be the father that she deserves, but Trixie tells her father off, stating that Dan was a great father before expressing her love, pride, and admiration in him. Trixie's words cause Dan to finally let go of the guilt that has been keeping him from moving on to Heaven and as Trixie walks away, his soul finally ascends to its rightful place.
In "Partners 'Til the End", after learning that Dan's soul has finally made it to Heaven, Chloe realizes that Trixie was responsible in some way since she'd heard about Dan's visit from the camp and Dan had been avoiding visiting his daughter. When Chloe wonders what made Dan finally visit and talk to Trixie, Lucifer explains that it was him, Lucifer having encouraged Dan to take advantage of the time that he has by spending it with the people who matter the most to him.
In the flash forwards, Trixie is there when her information on Lucifer's ring (which comes home for the first time. In the pictures at an elderly Chloe's bedside, Trixie is shown to have fulfilled her dream of becoming an astronaut, but for some reason, she is not present when her mother dies, though given her career it's entirely possible that she was in space at the time and thus couldn't be there in person.
In "Once Upon a Time", God creates an alternate universe where John Decker was never murdered. This meant that Chloe remained an actress, which meant Dan never met Chloe and became a corrupt cop. Because of this, Trixie doesn't exist in the alternate universe.
Being so young, Trixie is innocent and full of wonder. She seems unbothered by her parents' separation and seems to be more aware of the world than she lets on, such as in "Lucifer, Stay. Good Devil.", when she revealed to her mother that she already knew about her short-lived career as an actress, thanks to the internet.
Despite his uncomfortable stance with children, Trixie seems to enjoy Lucifer's company, having felt a bond with him when he scared off a bully in "Pilot". She runs up to hug him when he comes to visit, and even thinks he is "funny." She seems to see him as a "cool uncle" figure, taking his bad influence to heart, such as in "Favorite Son", where she takes a bite out of her birthday cake behind her parent's back because Lucifer told her "if you want something, just take it." Trixie is unfazed by several things that would disturb or scare most children of her age, and she even viewed them as "awesome", for example when Maze took Trixie trick or treating. Trixie said she wished that Maze had brought a costume to wear. Maze responded, "Well, I did bring something", and reveals her true face. Trixie said it was cool and it would get them "so much candy.".
Trixie is easily bribed. When Maze needed information on Lucifer's ring (which belonged to her mother, Lily Rose), Trixie used ability to pester Lucifer to get him to agree to tell the story of the ring; Maze paid Trixie for the information in the story. A promise of chocolate cake earned her father her silence and some clothing in which to escape the house after maze dropped him there unconscious and naked.
According to Rory, she grows up to be a caring and loving sister with a huge ambition to go to space. While she may be more laid back in the future, she still has a knack for hiding her sweets.

- Although Trixie appears in a promo image for "Quid Pro Ho", she doesn't actually appear in the aired version of the episode.
- In the volume 1 of the Lucifer comic series, there is a character named Beatrice Wechsler, an adult waitress that worked at the Lux and eventually became Mazikeen's lover.
- Her name could also be a reference to Beatrice Portinari, Dante's "love interest" in The Divine Comedy.
- Trixie loves chocolate cake, her favorite flavor being double fudge.
- In a cosmic sense of irony, Trixie only exists because of her grandfather's death. Without John's death to motivate Chloe, she would have never met Dan and had Trixie.
- Chloe and Dan call Trixie "little monkey" which was Chloe's father nickname for her.
- In "Pilot", Lucifer told Trixie that her name was a hooker's name. This is a possible reference to a prostitute named Trixie who was a frequent guest character on the show Californication, which was created by Tom Kapinos. Kapinos also developed the TV series Lucifer from the comics and wrote the pilot episode.
- On Trixie's bedroom door at her grandmother's house, a sign can be seen that reads: "Trixie's Room, No Boys Allowed except for Lucifer and daddy."
- A side note that "and daddy" is squished underneath considering that Dan hasn't been around much since he had been focusing most on work and she liked Lucifer from their first encounter
- Trixie loves all things related to outer space and aliens. In addition to wanting to be the first President of Mars, she loves to draw and color pictures of aliens, which it is later revealed she and Mazikeen use to cover knife marks in Chloe's house. Trixie also has a stuffed toy name Ms. Alien, whom she lovingly loaned to Maze when Maze took her bounty-hunting trip to Canada.
- Trixie's dad Dan Espinoza dies in "Is This Really How It's Going To End?!" when Trixie was only eleven years old. She and her mom, Chloe Decker, both lost their fathers at a young age.
- Her western zodiac sign is Pisces and her Chinese zodiac sign is a Rat.
- The name Beatrice is a girl's name of Italian, Latin origin meaning "she who brings happiness; blessed".
- As an adult, Trixie spikes punch bowls.
- Trixie is 7 at the beginning of Season 1, she celebrates her 8th birthday in "Favorite Son", Dan Espinoza mention she's 9 in "The Last Heartbreak", she is 10 in Season 4, she is 11 in Season 5, she is 13 in Season 6 and 14 in the flash forward in "Partners 'Til the End".
- It is unclear how much of the celestial world she really knew about prior to her half sister's birth, but it can be assumed that after Rory's birth she knew everything, and even tried to help her little sister handle any celestial problems.
