Triumphant was discovered by Mummy Melcon during an archeological expedition in a cave located in an unknown part of Hades. Melcon, trying to be polite, invited him to tea; Triumphant joined the Tigers shortly after. A stone skeleton with the head of a horse and the armor of a trojan warrior, Triumphant is considered to be a literal 'trojan horse' and is completely convinced Blaseball itself is a very complicated battle of the Trojan war. He's seemingly unaware the war has been over for thousands of years.
Triumphant's a great fan of Plato, often carrying a book of Plato's philosophies on field with him. As he is significantly older than Plato, it's considered a possibility that the cave he lived in during his time in the Shadows is the literal Allegory of the Cave and Plato ripped him off.
Known for riding a spectral horse (named Triumphant) on field, it's debated among fans whether the horse is his soul and therefore counts as his running the bases himself, or if the horse is a ghost possessing Triumphant and applies to the oft quoted Air Bud Clause. Either way, he has an awful sense of direction and has a hard time running the bases without Triumphant's help.
Because of his associations with the glory of triumph, the plume on his helmet appears to be enchanted, growing longer every time the Tigers win a game. it has had to be cut at the end of every season as to avoid getting so big he can't play. He refers to his bat as his sword.
