CUoCF: The District 12 Victors

CUoCF banner

These are the current victors from District 12.
I’ve spent all these weeks getting to know who my competitors are, without even thinking about who my teammates are. Now a new confidence is lighting up inside me, because I think I finally know who Haymitch is. And I’m beginning to know who I am. And surely, two people who have caused the Capitol so much trouble can think of a way to get Peeta home alive.
Haymitch Abernathy: The mentor for the District 12 victor-tributes, Haymitch Abernathy is well known for his drunkenness. But he wasn’t always that way. Haymitch won the 2nd Quarter Quell by brilliantly using the arena’s force field as a weapon to defeat a District 1 Career. Since winning his Games is such a fashion, Haymitch has had a hard life & turned to drinking as a way to cope. But he is still determined for his victor-tributes to make it out of the 3rd Quarter Quell alive.
I look up into those blue eyes that no amount of dramatic makeup can make truly deadly and remember how, just a year ago, I was prepared to kill him. Convinced he was trying to kill me. Now everything is reversed. I’m determined to keep him alive, knowing the cost will be my own life, but the part of me that is not so brave as I could wish is glad that it’s Peeta, not Haymitch, beside me.
Peeta Mellark: The male victor-tribute from District 12, Peeta Mellark is probably the only victor who has won the Hunger Games without killing anyone. He is now healthy & strong after winning the 74th Hunger Games, and he still bakes at his families bakery (even though he doesn’t have to). After the Games, Peeta took up painting as his “talent,” for which he has a natural ability. His favorite color is orange, like the sunset.
The berries. I realize the answer to who I am lies in that handful of poisonous fruit. If I held them out to save Peeta because I knew I would be shunned if I came back without him, I am despicable. If I held them out because I loved him, I am still self-centered, although forgivable. But if I held them out to defy the Capitol, I am someone of worth. The trouble is, I don’t know exactly what was going on inside me at that moment.
Katniss Everdeen: The female victor-tribute from District 12, Katniss Everdeen is also known as “the girl on fire.” She became beloved among the Capitol citizens after the 74th Hunger Games, but among the districts she became a symbol of rebellion. After being threatened by President Snow, Katniss realizes that there’s nothing she could do to calm the people of Panem, but she could change things. Her favorite color is green.

CUoCF: Quarter Quell Victor-Tributes Part 2

CUoCF banner

This is the first time I realize the depth of betrayal felt among the victors and the rage that accompanies it. But they are so smart, so wonderfully smart about how they play it, because it all comes back to reflect on the government and President Snow in particular. Not everyone. There are the old throwbacks, like Brutus and Enobaria, who are just here for another Games, and those too baffled or drugged or lost to join in on the attack. But there are enough victors who still have the wits and the nerve to come out fighting.
These are the rest of the Quarter Quell victor-tributes we are introduced to in Catching Fire.
Finnick Odair: The male victor-tribute from District 4, Finnick Odair is a favorite among the citizens of the Capitol. Finnick won the 65th Hunger Games at the age of fourteen, making him twenty-four for the 3rd Quarter Quell. He is tall & athletic, with golden skin & bronze-colored hair. During his Games, he wanted for nothing, and received one of the most expensive sponsor gifts, a trident. Being from District 4, it was only a matter of days before he was crowned victor while wielding that weapon. Since the age of sixteen, wealthy citizens of the Capitol have been desperate to be in his company.
Gloss: The District 1 male victor-tribute, Gloss is a handsome victor who is the brother of Cashmere, the other District 1 victor-tribute. He’s an aggressive Career.
Johanna Mason: The female victor-tribute from District 7, Johanna Mason is a clever victor. She spent most her time in the training sessions and her Hunger Games pretending to be a weakling, but then demonstrated a vicious ability to destroy the other tributes. With her short hair & brown eyes, Johanna is not self-conscious about her appearance. She also has developed a toughness since her victory in the Games.

Mags: The eighty year old female victor-tribute from District 4, Mags volunteered to take the place of a hysterical young woman in order to save her from going back into the arena. She walks with the help of a cane and has possibly had a stroke which left her with garbled speech. Mags is able to make a fishhook out of about anything, and she was also Finnick Odair’s mentor for his Games.
Morphlings: We don’t know their names, but the victor-tributes from District 6 are simply known as the morphlings. They are bone thin with sagging yellowish skin from abuse of the Capitol drug, morphling. They are both fascinated with color and spend a large amount of the training sessions with the camouflage paints.
Seeder: The District 11 female victor-tribute, Seeder is 60 years old but still strong. She looks like she could be from the Seam in District 12 with her olive skin and straight black hair streaked with silver. Unlike most other older victors, Seeder never turned to morphling or alcohol to cope with life as a victor.
Wiress: About the age of Mrs. Everdeen, Wiress is the female victor-tribute from District 3. She speaks in a quiet, intelligent voice, but has a tendency to drop off mid-sentence which Beetee can usually finish for her. She is also an inventor, and was working on a sewing machine that could sense fabric density & adjust accordingly. Even when she forgets to finish her sentences, Wiress is still one of the smarter victors.
Woof: The male victor-tribute from District 8, Woof isn’t always aware of what’s going on around him. He’s pretty old & hard of hearing, and doesn’t always listen to what he’s told.

CUoCF: Quarter Quell Victor-Tributes Part 1

CUoCF banner

Yes, victors are our strongest. They’re the ones who survived the arena and slipped the noose of poverty that strangles the rest of us. They, or should I say we, are the very embodiment of hope where there is no hope. And now twenty-three of us will be killed to show how even that hope was an illusion.

(Art: xxIgnisxx)
Beetee: The victor-tribute from District 3, Beetee is a fidgety, older man who has a habit of looking at things under his glasses. After winning his Hunger Games, Beetee began inventing things. Being from District 3, he invents things like a music chip the size of a glitter flake that can hold thousands of songs.
Blight: The male victor-tribute from District 7, Blight is a relatively unknown character.
(Art: finnodair)
Brutus: The District 2 victor-tribute, Brutus was a volunteer for the 3rd Quarter Quell. He is a large, imposing man who would like nothing more than a chance to get back in the arena.
Cashmere: The District 1 female victor-tribute, Cashmere is gorgeous, but not very friendly. Her brother is Gloss, the other District 1 victor-tribute. They won their Games in consecutive years.
Cecelia: The District 8 female victor-tribute, Cecelia is about 30 years old. During her reaping, she had to remove her three children who were clinging to her.
Chaff: The victor-tribute from District 11, Chaff is well-known for his friendship with Haymitch Abernathy. With dark skin & a height of 6 feet, Chaff would be intimidating if it weren’t for his self-deprecating humor. He lost most of one arm during his Hunger Games 30 years ago, but refused to get a prosthetic from the Capitol.
Enobaria: About 30 years old, Enobaria is the female victor-tribute from District 2. She is well known for her vicious behavior during her Games. She killed one tribute by ripping out his throat with her teeth, and since then she had her all teeth cosmetically shaped into sharp fangs & each is inlaid with gold.

CUoCF: Characters of the Capitol

He embraces me, enfolding me in the smell of blood and roses, and plants a puffy kiss on my cheek. when he pulls back, his fingers digging into my arms, his face smiling into mine, I dare to raise my eyebrows. The ask what my lips can’t. Did I do it? Was it enough?

These are the people of the Capitol from Catching Fire.

President Snow: The President of Panem, Snow is a small man with white hair, snakelike eyes, & overpuffed lips. President Snow rarely leaves the Capitol, but he makes an exception when someone isn’t cooperating with the Capitol. President Snow is a ruthless leader who smells of blood & roses.

Seneca Crane: The Head Gamemaker for the 74th Hunger Games, Seneca Crane was the one who allowed 2 tributes from the same district to be victors. This didn’t make President Snow very happy. It is believed Seneca was killed for what happened in the 74th Games.

Ceasar Flickerman: The master of ceremonies for the Hunger Games, Ceasar Flickerman is a larger than life personality. He conducts interviews with victors & tributes, trying his best to make each one look their best.

Plutarch Heavensbee: The new Head Gamemaker for the 75th Hunger Games. Before he became Head Gamemaker, Plutarch Heavensbee was a Gamemaker for the 74th Games. During the private training session for Katniss Everdeen, Plutarch fell back into a punch bowl after she shot an arrow into the Gamemakers’ feast.

Atala: The woman in charge of the Training Center, Atala is responsible for organizing the tributes during the training sessions before each Games.

Tax: The man in charge of archery in the Training Center, Tax was very impressed with Katniss’ skills during the 74th Hunger Games. He tries to make archery training more difficult for Katniss during the 3rd Quarter Quell.

Claudius Templesmith: The announcer for the Hunger Games. Claudius Templesmith is responsible for all the announcements in the arena.

CUoCF: Book Characters Worth Mentioning

CUoCF banner
I think of how I never realized that she and my mother shared this connection. Of Madge showing up in that snowstorm to bring the painkiller for Gale. Of my mockingjay pin and how it means something completely different now that I know that its former owner was Madge’s aunt, Maysilee Donner, a tribute who was murdered in the arena.
These are important characters mentioned in Book 2 of The Hunger Games trilogy. They may or may not be in the movie.
madge & the pin
Madge Undersee: The daughter of District 12’s mayor, Madge has become a friend to Katniss Everdeen since the 74th Hunger Games. Madge has a lot of free time, so she began giving Katniss piano lessons & went out in the woods to learn how to shoot a bow & arrow. She’s a quiet girl who doesn’t have much interest in clothes or gossip. Madge is best known for giving Katniss the mockingjay pin after the reaping (this was changed in The Hunger Games in order for Prim to be the giver of the pin).

Twill & Bonnie: We meet Twill & Bonnie briefly in the woods outside of District 12. They’re on the run after escaping the bombing in District 8. Twill is a middle-aged woman who taught school & worked shifts in the textile factory where the uprising of District 8 began. Bonnie is a teenage girl from District 8 who also worked shifts in the textile factory that specialized in Peacekeeper uniforms. Working her shifts in the inspection dock allowed Bonnie opportunities to steal 2 Peacekeeper uniforms for Twill & her husband. It was only by chance that Twill & Bonnie weren’t in the factory when it was destroyed by the Capitol. So they used the uniforms to escape from District 8 in order to make their way to District 13, where they hope to find sanctuary from the Capitol.
 Annie Cresta: A previous victor from District 4, Annie Cresta is not completely sane. She was chosen in the reaping for the 3rd Quarter Quell, but her place was taken by an older victor from District 4.
Maysilee Donner: During the 2nd Quarter Quell, Maysilee Donner was one of the girls chosen from District 12. She survived most of the Games using poison darts & becoming an ally of Haymitch Abernathy. But she was eventually killed by vicious birds in the arena. Maysilee was the sister of Mayor Undersee’s wife, and she was friends with Mrs. Everdeen. Maysilee was also the original owner of the mockingjay pin.

CUoCF: The District 12 Support Team

CUoCF banner

My prep team. My foolish, shallow, affectionate pets, with their obsessions with feathers and parties, nearly break my heart with their good-bye. It’s certain from Venia’s last words that we all know I won’t be returning. Does the whole world know it? I wonder. I look at Cinna. He knows, certainly. But as he promised, there’s no danger of tears from him.

These are the people who help the District 12 Victors & Mentors.


(Art: Leabharlann)

Effie Trinket: She has been the escort for District 12 for all Hunger Games related events. She’s responsible for getting her tributes, victors, & mentors where they need to be on time. Along with her energetic personality, she is a very positive person with Capitol style. She enjoys wearing a variety of wigs to coordinate with her outfits. Effie also considers herself to be a bit of an expert on architectural design.

Octavia: She is the member of Katniss’ prep team that has changed the most since the 74th Hunger Games. Her skin is no longer a pea green shade, but rather a light evergreen color. Octavia has always been curvy, but has become a little plumper than Katniss remembers.

Flavius: A member of Katniss Everdeen’s prep team for all Hunger Games events, Flavius is known for his orange corkscrew curly hair & his purple lipstick. Since the 74th Games, Flavius has been desperate to alter Katniss for a more Capitol look. The members of the prep team have been enjoying their notoriety since the previous Games.


(Art: muggleriot)

Venia: Another member of Katniss’ prep team, Venia seems to be stronger than the other two. She styles her aqua hair into spikes all over her head. The gold tattoos on her face used to be confined to above her eyebrows, but now curl around under her eyes. This makes her look perpetually shocked.

Portia: The stylist for Peeta Mellark since the beginning of the 74th Games. Not much is known about Portia, except that she collaborates with Cinna on costume designs for District 12.


(Art: Catching-Smoke)

When my hair is done, I find Cinna downstairs in the living room, and just the sight of him makes me feel more hopeful.

Cinna: The stylist for Katniss Everdeen since the 74th Hunger Games, Cinna is unlike other Capitol citizens. He avoids the outrageous outfits & body modifications, instead choosing to wear simple clothes, keep his natural brown hair short, and only using a hint of gold eyeliner to bring out the gold flecks in his eyes. Since the end of the 74th Games, Cinna has been helping Katniss “develop” her talent for clothing design.

CUoCF: The People of District 12

CUoCF banner

There’s an inherent flaw in the plan that both Gale and I were too blind to see. An uprising requires breaking the law, thwarting authority. We’ve done that our whole lives, or our families have. Poaching, trading on the black market, mocking the Capitol in the woods. But for most people in District 12, a trip to buy something at the Hob would be too risky. And I expect them to assemble in the square with bricks and torches? Even the sight of Peeta and me is enough to make people pull their children away from the windows and draw the curtains tightly.

These are some of the people we meet in District 12.


(Art: Maiasm)

Mayor Undersee: As the mayor of District 12, Mayor Undersee doesn’t seem to have much authority. He has no say in the influx of Peacekeepers or the new aggressive law enforcement. His wife suffers from debilitating headaches, which leaves him to look after his daughter, Madge.

Greasy Sae: The old woman who sells her soup at the Hob, Greasy Sae can make soup out of just about anything. During the 74th Hunger Games Greasy Sae started a money collection among the people of the Hob to sponsor their District 12 tributes. This collection expanded to most of the district, and could have been the difference between life and death for the tributes in the arena.

Ripper: The woman who sells liquor at the Hob. Before she sold liquor, Ripper worked in the coal mines of District 12. She lost one of her arms in a mining accident, which forced her to find another means of income. But Ripper always manages to find a way to support herself.


(Art: Frankie-Calamari)

Darius: Identified by his red hair and easy grin, Darius is one of the younger, friendlier Peacekeepers. He’s not as serious & is always good for a joke. He spends time at the Hob, and he likes Greasy Sae’s soup. But Darius doesn’t really fit with the new Peacekeepers brought into District 12.

Purnia: One of the female Peacekeepers, Purnia is another that eats at Greasy Sae’s. She may not agree with the way the new Peacekeepers do things, but she knows how to deal with them.

Leevy: A girl who lives in the Seam. Leevy lives a few houses down from the Everdeen’s old house in the Seam. Mrs. Everdeen kept Leevy’s little brother alive when he had the measles.

Bristel & Thom: Two of Gale Hawthorne’s crewmates down in the coal mines of District 12. We don’t know much about them, but we do know they care about their crewmates.

Cray: The old Head Peacekeeper, Cray wasn’t well liked. An older man with silver hair combed sideways above his red face, Cray is well known for his drinking. He wouldn’t have been disliked so much if he didn’t have a habit of paying starving young women for their company.


(Art: screamster)

Romulus Thread: The new Head Peacekeeper in District 12, Romulus Thread is a hated man. He was brought in quickly, and he is aggressive in his punishment. He is a tall, muscular man, with a hard face, cruel mouth, gray hair, and black eyes.
