These are the district 12 tributes and their mentor.
I know the audience will enjoy our having fun at Haymitch’s expense. He has been around so long, he’s practically an old friend to some of them.
Haymitch Abernathy: Known mostly for his drunkenness, Haymitch is the only living victor for district 12. Over the years Haymitch has become a paunchy, surly, middle-aged man. As a victor, it is Haymitch’s responsibility to mentor all district 12 tributes for the Hunger Games. He must work with them during their stay at the Training Center with the goal of gaining sponsors. Once the Games begin, Haymitch will be in the Games Headquarters signing up sponsors & strategizing the receipt of gifts in the arena.
Presenting ourselves not as adversaries but as friends has distinguished us as much as the fiery costumes.
Peeta Mellark: The youngest son of the district 12 baker, Peeta is chosen as the male tribute for the 74th Hunger Games. He has a stocky build with ashy blond hair and blue eyes. He may not have the survival skills of some of the other tributes, but he is strong, with a good heart and talents that could keep him alive. No matter what happens, to Katniss, he will always be the “boy with the bread.”
Katniss Everdeen: Born in district 12 to a coal miner and an apothecary’s daughter, Katniss is the female tribute from district 12. She’s a sixteen year old girl with black hair, gray eyes and olive skin, all common of Seam residents. She keeps her family alive with hunting & foraging skills learned from her father before his death. Because of her hunting skills, she is mostly liked by the residents of district 12, but when she volunteers to replace her younger sister in the Games, a shift occurs and she gains the respect & admiration of district12. Not everyone is aware, but Katniss has a good chance in the Games because, as Mrs. Mellark says, “She’s a survivor, that one.”
