Hunger Games through the Ages Wiki

Katniss Everdeen
~District Twelve~


District 12.jpg

Katniss lived her whole life in District 12. Her father died when she was 11 and she has had to take care of her mother and younger sister. Her mother was unable to care for them because she had become mentally unstable from the death of her husband.

When Katniss was 16 her younger sister, Prim, was reaped, Katniss volunteered in her place. For more information on her 74th Hunger Games experience see here.

After the Games, Katniss began living her life in the victors village with her mother and Prim. She also lived near Peeta Mellark and Haymitch Abernathy. She was having a little bit of trouble coping with all the things she had seen and was having dreams about them. Each victor is supposted to take up a hobby after they won their Games because they don't have to go to school or go to work. Katniss pretended to become interested in fashion (which Cinna was really doing for her) and Peeta took up painting.

When Katniss was 17 she was Reaped for the 75th Hunger Games. For more information on these Games see here.

Katniss was rescued by District 13 and she seemed to stick out there. She did what she wanted, when she wanted. She didn't stick with their schedule. She eventually went on a mission to a hospital in District 8, but they were bombed by The Capitol and her and Gale blew the planes up.

She went into training and eventually went to the Capitol to assassinate Snow. After excaping various pods and evading Peacekeepers, she made it to Snow's mansion and saw Prim die.

She woke up in the mansion and eventually got to assassinate Snow. Only she didn't. She realized that it wasn't Snow who killed her sister but Coin. Katniss turned her bow and shot Coin and killed her. Snow then died from an unknown cause.

After, Katniss and Peeta were married and had two children, a boy and a girl. Haymitch begins to raise geese, and is still an alcoholic. Mrs. Everdeen moved to District 4, because there were too many painful memories back in District 12. Gale moved to District 2 because he knew that Katniss would never look at him the same again because he may have killed Prim.
