The Hunger Games Characters By Suzanne Collins These are the tributes in the 74th annual Hunger Games. This book focuses on District 12's tributes. Katniss Everdeen narrates the story. 74 years ago, The 13 districts rebelled against the Capitol (government). The Capitol destroyed the 13th district and began the Hunger Games. The Capitol believes that selecting a boy and girl from the age 12-18 at random from each district to fight to the death will keep peace around the districts. The Capital citizens are very wealthy and have their own style of clothes. They do not compete in the Hunger Games; they bet on their favorites and see it as a reality television show. Every District has their own escort from the capitol. District 12's escort is Effie Trinket. Every District also has a stylist. Katniss hates capitol citizens because she doesn't understand how they can watch this and enjoy it. This is what Cinna and Katniss have in common. He tries his best to help her, and she trusts him.

He taught her how to set up snares. Katniss's and Gale's father worked together, and unfortunatley died in a coal mining accident.

He came on an intercom and told the tributes that their could be to winners from the same district. This meant that Peeta and Katniss or Cato and Clove could win together. As for Thresh and Foxface, their district partner had already died leaving them to fend for themselves only. Katniss finds Peeta and acts like she is in love with him.
