Abstract: Based on recent work of Spaltenstein [14] and the Deligne-Lusztig theory of irreducible characters of finite groups of Lie type, in this paper the character table of the finite simple groups $ {}^3{D_4}(q)$ is given. As an application we obtain a classification of the irreducible characters of $ {}^3{D_4}(q)$ into $ r$-blocks for all primes $ r > 0$. This enables us to verify Brauer's height zero conjecture, his conjecture on the bound of irreducible characters belonging to a give block, and the Alperin-McKay conjecture for the simple triality groups $ {}^3{D_4}(q)$. It also follows that for every prime $ r$ there are blocks of defect zero in $ {}^3{D_4}(q)$.
