Trua became close with his uncle Makaio, who is actually 5 years younger than him. Makaio learned a lot from Trua over the years, often following him in shows. Trua has also become very close with an older female named Kayla. After Trua's mom moved to SeaWorld San Antonio, he was often put with Kayla, who was learning how to take care of calves.

In 2008, Trua and his mother were grouped with Tilikum. The three got along very well and Trua loved spending time with his grandpa. Takara moved in 2009, after becoming pregnant by Tilikum, while Tilikum and Trua remained together. For several years, he was the only whale who performed with Tilikum. Malia started to spend most of her time with Tilikum until he passed away in January 2017. As of mid 2016, Trua has started spending most of his time with Kayla, though he can be seen with any of Orlando's whales. Over the last couple of years, he has started to grow a lot, weighing over 5,300 pounds. His dorsal has also started to bend to his left.
