1 Katniss Everdeen HERO… notes

2 Personality Traits  Bravery  Leadership  Courage  Persistence  Intelligence

3 Culture/Society  District 12 is lower class  Smallest district  Coal miners  Girl on fire/Spark for rebellion  Exceeds low expectations  Trained for hunting by breaking the law (Collins Hunger Games)

4 Setting  Time of oppressive Capitol  Prepared for first arena by hunting in the woods with Gale  Father died when she was young, forced to provide for mother/sister  Risks her life for Prim (Collins Hunger Games)  Mother is depressed, Katniss takes on family leadership role  Quiet, unsociable (Rosenburg)

5 Thoughts toward family  Unconditional love toward Mom & Prim  Sole provider for the family  Feels alone, takes that ethic into arena  Has hard time warming up to people (i.e. Haymitch, Peeta, Prep. Team) (Collins Hunger Games)  Takes Prim’s place in first games  Treats Gale and his family like her own

6 Feelings toward The Capitol  Didn’t question leadership  Angered by Games, shoots at Gamemakers in training  Thrives in the first Arena, embarrasses Capitol by faking suicide with Peeta (Collins Hunger Games)  That is her first act of defiance, unknowingly identifies her as the symbol of rebellion  Later realizes how terrible and manipulative it is, hate for Capitol grows (Collins Catching Fire)  Very confused about how to directly incite a rebellion

7 Haymitch, and the Rebellion  Originally comes off as useless, drunk mentor  Singles out, and aids Katniss in the first Arena  Angers Katniss by not informing her of her important role of the Mockinjay  Plans rebellion years before Katniss’ Games, withholds information  Creates feeling of being used in Katniss, got same feeling from Snow and The Capitol

8 Thrust Into Leadership  Katniss isn’t a hero by choice, her spontaneous actions make her a rebellious symbol  Evacuated after second Arena by Haymitch/Gamemakers  Doesn’t realize they’ve been planning rebellion for years, just waiting for right timing  She only serves as a figurehead, she can persuade and convince people to join the rebels  Just wants Games to be over, return to normal life, forced to speadhead revolution  People look up to her, citizens of District 13 look to her for courage and leadership (Collins Mockingjay)

9 Reluctant Hero  Doesn’t act like routine hero  Confused, afraid, acts out of emotion  Doesn’t want the attention or glamour  When in District 13, isn’t allowed to fight in significant battles (Collins Mockingjay)  Gets sick of being used as a pawn  Eventually realizes, leads military squad on mission to kill Snow, fails  Kills Coin and Snow, fulfilling her own goals and completing the rebellion
