In the movie/book you are from a district and these are the Districts • In my opinion I think Rue’s death was the most saddest. • She died when Marvel (from district 1) through a spear though her Stomach. See slide after this it talks about her. Some people in the movie/book • Cinna — Katniss's stylist. A sly and witty man, Cinna is clever with his fingers and even smarter in his mind. His incredible designs for Katniss help her popularity with the audience. He is the most "normal" person Katniss meets from the Capitol. • Rue— The tribute from District 11. Small and meek, it was not assumed that she would last long in the 74th Hunger Games, but her knowledge of trees, plants, and hiding keeps her alive. She can leap from tree to tree almost as if she had wings. She warns Katniss about the tracker jackers hive, and they later become allies. She is later murdered by the boy tribute from District 1, Marvel. Rue had dark eyes and dark skin, and is of African descent. • Cato— District 2 male tribute. Having prepared for the Games his whole life, he was described as a "ruthless killing machine". He was extremely strong and the most likely choice of a winner. Cato killed the District 6 male along with many other unnamed tributes. He, Katniss, and Peeta were the last three tributes to face the wolves muttations. • Clove — The female tribute from District 2. She was very skilled in knife throwing, as she was the one who killed the male tribute from District 9(the first person to die during the 74th Games). She attempted to kill Katniss with one of her knives, but Katniss used her new backpack as a shield. Clove was the fifth person at the end to die, where she went to the "feast" having Cato guarding her. She was killed during the feast by Thresh after she tried to kill Katniss. She was the only person during the 74th Games that got close to killing Katniss---twice. • Foxface — Described as having fox-like features and known by no other name, this red-head from District 5 is hard to catch. Though she doesn't have brute strength or knowledge of weapons, she could outsmart everyone in the arena. She made it to the final 4, then died by eating nightlock left out by Peeta. • Thresh — Male tribute from District 11. With the same brown skin and golden brown eyes as Rue, he was extremely resourceful and immensely powerful. His most notable act was that of sparing Katniss due to her alliance with Rue. He died shortly thereafter. • Glimmer— The female tribute from District 1who was described as beautiful it some people, and tall, with blonde hair and emerald green eyes. She was part of the Career pack and was killed alongside the girl from District 4 when a hive of angry tracker jackers was dropped on the camp by Katniss. • Marvel— The male tribute from District 1, who was strong and ruthless. He killed Rue, the District 11 female tribute in the 74th Hunger Games, by throwing a spear through her stomach. He was then killed by Katniss, shot in the throat by an arrow and drowned in his own blood. He was Katniss's first kill. • Effie Trinket- The District 12 escort, who is a happy and bubbly person. She drew Primrose's (Katniss's sister) name during the reaping causing Katniss to volunteer herself as tribute. She wears many different colored wigs and helps Katniss and Peeta get sponsors in the Games. She constantly bickers and argues with Haymitch. Very proper. • Haymitch Abernathy — Haymitch is Katniss's and Peeta's mentor. He is drunk at almost any given time, with a glass in one hand and a knife in the other. He drinks to forget the memories of the 50th Hunger Games, which he was crowned victor of. He won during the second Quarter Quell, when double the tributes were required to participate in this deadly game. He promised he would sober up long enough for Katniss and Peeta to play the Games and help them. He sends Katniss gifts throughout the games to help her survive, and sometimes Katniss believes that his gifts always seem to have good timing and there might be some kind of connection between them. • Gale Hawthorne— The best friend of Katniss. She and Gale met when she was only twelve and he was fourteen. Both of their fathers died in the same mining explosion. Gale hunts with Katniss in the forest usually everyday, but in Catching Fire he only hunts with her on Sundays (before the 24-hour electric fence arrives) because he started work in the mines. Gale calls Katniss "Catnip," a nickname that was created after the pair first met. Katniss barely whispered when he asked her what her name is in the woods, and Gale thought she said Catnip. Even though Katniss told him her real name later, he still calls her that. • Primrose Everdeen — The younger sister and only sibling of Katniss Everdeen. She was originally chosen as the female tribute for the Games, but Katniss volunteered to take her place. She owns a goat named Lady, and a cat named Buttercup. Unlike her older sibling, Prim has a heart full of compassion and for healing. She was named after the Evening Primrose, as mentioned in Mockingjay. This is the end of the slide all about the hunger games • May the odds be EVER in your favor!…..
