Top 10 Best Hunger Games Characters
He's not my all-time favorite (I prefer Prim), yet he still has a mind-blowing character arc. At first you see him as repulsively sensual, arrogant, and perverse...but as time goes on you realize the true heroism in his heart. Arguably the worst-used Victor ever, he was enslaved by Snow for years, turned into a object of pleasure for hundreds of horrible Capitol citizens. All the while, he only truly loved poor Annie from District Four. And he's very selfless, too. He was willing to put himself in danger during the Quarter Quell multiple times to save Katniss and Peeta. His death was horrific and completely undeserved...made even worse since he left a wife and son behind.
Finnick and Prim are the best characters! Finnick is my favorite though. He's super interesting and fun. I like his charm. He's a really well developed character. Overall I think that he definitely deserves to be here at the top!
Finnick Odair is simply just the best. He was sold as a slave by the Capitol and the love of his life was beaten behind the curtain and there was nothing he could do about it. While Katniss had many mental breakdowns when Peeta was being tortured by the Capitol, Finnick only had one which goes to show he is one of the strongest characters (if not the strongest) mentally and physically. He also had the saddest Hunger Games death by far! Finnick is just the best.
I love Finnick Odair. In my opinion, Finnick has a horrible past, and yet he always tries to be chill. I was honestly so heartbroken that he died. He did not deserve his fate.
She is the perfect character to tell the Hunger Games from. Her constant mind conflicts, deciding between Peeta and Gale. Perfection! Not only does she put her finesse on in the books but in the movies Jennifer Lopez perfects the Katniss personality from all ends. Katniss is just awesome!
Katniss is super strong and loyal but she also sees her own flaws, and that's amazing! Katniss is also relateble, I mean she sounds real and like she's actually had experiences. She will fight for those she loves. She also isn't a person constantly whining about her situation; she takes action, even when her dad die as she learnt how to hunt to get food. That bow and arrow=GOALS. I was also happy that she saw the true beauty in Peet's. That's another thing she can see true personalities and she's also super intelligent. She's a role model to all girls: Stand up for what is right, Fight for those you love, Don't whine about your situation take action, It's okay to be smart and Eveb though you don't think it you could be the leader of a revolution
I love Katniss. She went through so many things and stayed strong throughout them. She volunteered for her sisters place in the games and Katniss thought she had a good chance of dying. She watched Rue die in her arms. She had to deal with the whole Gale/Peeta thing. She found out Peeta had been taken by the the capital. She watched Peeta go through a bad stage. She was shot. She watched Prim DIE! Katniss is loyal and brave to the very end.
Okay finnick is great and everything but why isn't Katniss above him. She is the most real person in most books I read. She was just an ordinary person until she made herself extraordinary. She stayed strong through so many dark times and overthrew an oppressive government. She also has many deep things to say about some things in real life. Her raw emotion is so true to reality that I just love her character
I like sarcastic characters. Glory from wof is cool but is not as sarcastic as everyone makes her out to be. Meanwhile haymitch is a breath of fresh air. He was so indifferent to peetah and katniss at first but how he warmed up was well developed. I still remember how in school before a test I would tell my friend who never read hungry games "one final tip for the test, stay alive "
It said in the book that when Haymitch went to the Hunger Games arena, that he was in a large field. Some people stopped to smell the flowers, but the flowers where etched with poison and killed anyone who smelled them. Poor Haymitch. It must have been hard to go to the Hunger Games, kill other people, and then try to survive long enough to win. It also said that he used the arena against the last contestant.
Haymitch is, in my opinion, the most vulnerable and relatable character in the books and movies. Despite his flaws and sarcastic/harsh attitude he is still able to play the role of a father figure to both Katniss and occasionally Peeta. He knows when the time is right to fight for what he believes as well as stand up for the weaker man. Plus he won the hunger games when there were twice as many tributes. That's pretty badass
For me, Haymitch is the best character. He is so funny! My favourite part was in the book when he walked across the stage and then fell off it. I laughed my head off! I also liked the part in the book when katniss asked: Any advice and Haymitch said: stay alive. I laughed so hard! So blunt. No-one can beat Haymitch. He is so unique and cute. I love Haymitch. For me, he is my happiness. He is such an amazing crazy character!
Peeta And Katniss are so perfect for each other! In the first book, the part in the cave is my favorite part, Katniss cares about Peeta so much and it is nice to finally see in a YA book a boyfriend who is actually caring and sweet. Everlark forever! <3
Peeta is simply the best.
People say he is weak and that he never suffered anything compared to Gale, that is SO wrong, Peeta lost his family, he had to go twice to the Hunger Games (One time willingly), had his heart broken by the girl he loves, and still he was always there for Katniss! And after all this he still manages to stay true to himself. And even brainwashed he manages to make his way back to Katniss
Peeta is one of the sweetest characters in the Hunger Games. Going through the arena twice wasn't enough hmmm Capitol. You just had to torture information out of him that he didn't have. At least he got Katniss on the end. If he didn't I think I would have to call Suzanne Collins and tell her how to write a good ending for not just the main character.
I absolutely LOVE Peeta! He is my favorite character! Peeta is smart, strong, loving, kind, and sexy! There are so many honorable and heroic things that Peeta has done in the series. In the first book, he risked getting hit by his mother when he purposely burned the bread for Katniss, and he didn't even know her at the time! His love for Katniss is one of the most beautiful things in the series. In the first book, he risked being severely cut in the leg by Cato because he protected Katniss. He worked with the careers mainly to protect Katniss in the arena. In the second book, Peeta took Haymitch's place in the Quarter Quell so he could protect Katniss in the arena. He tried his absolute best to convince Katniss to protect herself in stead of him, and that says so much about his devotion and his character. Even in the last book, when the Capitol temporarily brainwashed Peeta, he loved Katniss at the end. It was so sweet when he gave Katniss the primrose flowers, in honor of her sister ...more
You know, it's really great when you like a character that they mentioned in passing that actually showed up and was a GREAT character!
I liked her strategy. Stay low, kill viciously. She was a character who I actually liked, no matter how much Katniss's narration wanted me to hate her. Her skills in the Arena, and her role in Mockingjay, alongside Finnick was a reminder of why I love the Hunger Games. It isn't a boring adventure, because the characters and story keep me invested. And Johanna Mason was a huge part of that.
So thank you, Johanna Mason. Thank you for letting me enjoy one of my favorite book series because you were an excellent character.
Johanna is an amazing character because she's courageous and stands up for herself. Even if Katniss doesn't really like her, she's a really good person.
It is very sad when she said "they can't hurt me. I'm not like the rest of you. There's no one left I love." She is different from Katniss in that way, but she understands what matters and what should come first when making choices. She plays a vital part in the rescue from the arena, and sacrifices herself for the others. She fights through the tortures and stays alive, even though she has no reason to. She eventually became a good friend of Katniss, and I really think that they make awesome friends.
Johanna is obviously really strong and bold, but as Katniss describes her in the Mockingjay, she doesn't have a very threatening stature. It's her personality that gives her that strength, but you see that image falter at times (e.g. the water after the Capitol tortured her) showing she's human. She's really smart, because she managed to deceive her opponents in her first hunger games, and managed to appear weak. However, she also has a really sad backstory, as she says that there's nobody left that she loves.
So, strong, smart and human. I'll always love district 7, and that's thanks to her. She's an amazing character.
Rue is the sweetest. I truly believe she could have won if she had stuck with the "laying low" strategy. Her survival skills could have carried her past the rest of the tributes. Rue's legacy lives on.
This sweet little girl turns out to be a very impressive ally. She is a genius in disguise and helped Katniss destroy the careers food supply but is then killed by Marvel who is then killed by Katniss. When Katniss starts to sing Rue's tune and puts the flowers around her head, it is one of the best moments in the Hunger Games.
She's the best. Literaly HOW IS SHE IN 5TH PLACE?! She didn't deseve to die and she was literaly the smartest, bravest, and the best person literaly EVER. She's so sweet and soft. She could've killed katniss, but she-didn't she saved her. She could've not agreed to katniss's plan, but she didn't. She light those fires and that allowed the career's food the blow up and the district 3 male to die. And for rue to get killed by marvel. If I could, I would place him at the bottom of the list eve though I know he was just trying to survive ad that he was trained that way. But Marvel, WHY RUE?!
For my personal opinion I think Rue is the best character in the Hunger Games, She basically had the ability to win, with her small size she has the ability to climb far high into the trees to keep away from the other tributes since most of them were big, with her knowledge of plants she can tell what is poison and what's not to, she is immune to poverty compared to the careers, is very sly, and is from an agricultural district.
Cinna is without a doubt the coolest character known to man. His artistic masterpieces are an everyday thing for him. Why do all the good characters have to die in these books. Cinna, Finnick, Prim, Rue. His death was one of the saddest for me. Cinna was by a million miles my favorite character until he died and Finnick was introduced.
Absolutely Best Character, Very deep, independent and not self-absorbed although very individualistic. He managed to become a real person in a sea of people, where every one is trying to be different and special. He managed to avoid shallowness and became a true artist and rebel, could look further than colorful walls of Capitol. All Capitol citizens were very aesthetic, but along with aesthetics, he was very intuitive and emotionally stable, hiding huge amount of emotions. I think he is a true survivor and individualist.
Cinna is just an amazing character. Modest, sweet and kind. I love him to death. His personality is perfect considering he lives in the capitol. His death hit the hardest along with Prim's and Finnick's. His dedication and rebel side is hard to beat and I just... I wish he hadn't died.
Am I the only fan who realises that Cinna designed that dress knowing he would die for it? He lives in the Capitol, he knows how they work. And he sacrificed himself. For the girl who was on fire. Also, he didn't die when the Peacekeepers dragged him off, he was captured and possibly tortured, as we know he was "killed during interrogation" I LOVE YOU CINNA
Not the brightest, but really cared about her tributes, and risked everything for them. She was one of the only Capitol people who cared about them.
Effie is a character that I personally didn't like when I first read the series, but as you watch the movies and read the books, you find out that she does care about Katniss and her team. She has a loving personality behind that 'scary white grin'.
She was the only person (from the capitol) (Other than cinna) who cared about Cinna, Katniss, Peeta, and Prim. She really isn't a suck-up and she is really kind hearted.
Effie Trinket was the only Capital Person I knew that cared for Katniss. She didn't like the Hunger Games. She cheered for Haymitch, Peeta and Katniss. They were a great team together!
She is such a phenomenal character, despite the fact that she was never actually in the Hunger Games. She is so sweet and selfless despite having to deal with her father's death and her mother's long stretch of unresponsiveness for years. She loved Katniss so much and took care of her during her worst times in Catching Fire and Mockingjay. And when she was finally killed by District 13's bombs, she was still doing her duty: healing the Capitol children who had first been attacked. RIP Prim!
The amount that Katniss goes to to save Prim's life is amazing. She volunteered for her in the Hunger Games, would spend hours a day hunting for food for them. By Mockingjay Prim had developed into a brave young woman and nurse. But after all Katniss had done to save her, Gale's parachute bomb trick worked but killed Prim in the process.
Prim is just the kindest, softest, sweetest sister and it's really sad how she dies. Everything Katniss did was to save her but in the end she's gone.
Prim should be number 1. She started the rebellion, pretty much. Who did Katniss volunteer for? Who convinced her to win? Who did Katniss dedicate winning for? What kept her going? PRIM did. If Prim didn't get reaped... No Mockingjay. No rebellion. And if Prim didn't (SPOILER) die... Katniss probably wouldn't've killed Coin. It was so sad when Prim died. I think she's the most underrated character in The Hunger Games.
We'll never forget you.
May the odds be ever in your favor
*does 4 note whistle and salute*
He was one of my favorite characters until he started "following the Capitol's rule book for ruthlessness." Then he was playing dirty, most similar to the Capitol. His creation killed many innocent children including Prim. But everything else in the series that he does gets him a get out of jail free card in my book.
Gale is the best character, he tries his best on everything but katniss never accepts him, I believe that Katniss shouldn't have gotten so mad at Gale because if she was in charge of blowing up the capital kids and didn't know prom was there she would have done the same. Gale deserves so much better than katniss she goes around kissing Peeta then Gale she, in my personal opinion kattniss should be the worst character and Gale should be one or two, I think Finic is also a great character and I love him equally as Gale but I think Gale deserves more respect then he gets because Katniss treats him poorly even though he helps prim so much and tries so hard. I think people should stop hating on Gail because he would never purposely kill Prim he is like and older brother to her.
Risked his life for Katniss and others countless times, was a loyal friend, and was a FLAWED character (unlike a certain, charming, kind, romantic, strong, artistic, gentle, witty, good looking baker). Yet does not even have his name spelt right.
I love him. A lot. Love the way he calls "Catnip", the one and only way. Love the way he always stands by her and has her back. But he can just stand there, protect that girl but never reach her. I realize how much I love him. It really hurts me.
She is amazing. Although she is no longer alive, she is still my favorite character. Throughout the entire game, she did not kill anyone. Her death is both sad and intriguing. She ate some poisonous berries, but during the training scene, she demonstrated a great understanding of which berries were harmful and which ones were safe to eat. Was it suicide? It seems highly probable, given her intelligence and the fact that she had made it so far, being in the top 5. In my opinion, she could have defeated Katniss, Peeta, Cato, and Thresh with her intelligence and wit. She was one of the few who didn't kill anyone. I believe that she is one of the most intriguing and remarkable characters in the entire film. However, I think she deserved more screen time and a better story. She was hardly ever seen, and no one really knew her. If it came down to her and Katniss left in the arena, I believe that Foxface could outsmart Katniss with her intelligence. This character will always be somewhat of ...more
Foxface is my favourite character In the hunger games too. I really thought she had a very high chance of winning. Lots of people admire katniss and peseta for not wanting to kill anyone but foxface actually hasn't killed ANYONE yet she still was one of the people who survived the longest. Most people only think about katniss and peeta being like that. She was also clever enough to avoid that trap with the explosion. Just because she's dead doesn't mean she can't be the best character. If katniss did accept the alliance with her, I'm sure they would be the strongest alliance ever!
She's the best character EVER! Exclamation point! Let's see how do you top smart, sly, elusive, and sneaky. Even the name is thrilling: Foxface. She always hopped around, had a plan, and she trusts Katniss. Her and Katniss sort of made an alliance. Both admired each other and if you watch the movie when they crash into each other Foxface smiled at Katniss and looked to the side like "well, do you wanna be in an alliance? " But they both walked away but neither killed each other and Foxface was cute and had a cool personality that makes you wanna be her for Halloween! Who else practically cried when she died? She was awesome and I wish she got more credit for it.
Seriously. Effie is above her? She is my favourite character. It's not fair, just because she isn't the main doesn't mean she just dies. Really, she isn't even bad. She really should be the winner. Go Foxface!
By the way, some people think her real name is Finch.
Beetee is ONLY the smartest character in the trilogy, an important piece to the rebellion. Without him the propos never would have aired to get Panem on 13's side. He also won his first Hunger Games at age 17 with an electric wire trick.
Smartest character from Hunger Games. District 3 is the smartest and most intelligent district. District are the Asians of the Hunger Games World.
Super smart and kind. Can't believe he wasn't on the list!
Beetle is rad and I did not know he is still alive!
Clove is by far the best character. Sure, in some parts of the movie she was portrayed as heartless and bloodthirsty, but I assure you, if the movie followed her instead of Katniss, far more about her would be revealed. In the scene where she almost killed Katniss, sure, she teased Katniss about Rue, but when she died, who's name did she call? Cato's. She called Cato's name. This shows that she cared. She cared about Cato, which means that she was capable of caring for others. In the book, Cato came after her, following her voice or his instinct on where she might have been, and stayed with her until she died. This shows that people cared for her. She was also very tough, intelligent, and tactical. Her abilities with knives was impeccable and she never missed. If Thresh didn't overhear her speech about killing Rue, she might have had a chance of making it out alive with Cato. That would've been incredible to see, a different 'star crossed lovers' story.
Clove is by far my fave. She's the youngest and smallest Career, but managed to get equal odds with Marvel, better odds than Glimmer and beat both of them in training. She got the first kill of the Games - the boy from District 9 she killed right before she tried to kill Katniss the first time. She's like a younger, smaller version of Katniss but with knives instead of bows and arrows and from District 2. Her actress is amazing and so pretty. If she was a bit older Isabelle Furnham might have been Katniss but she's better as Clove I think. I can't believe when I put this she only had 2%. Lower than Foxface. Foxface didn't even kill anyone! She's such a cool character.
Very underrated, they look at her and think that she's a bloodthirsty killer, but that's how she was raised. She was chosen to go into the Arena, and was trained to be a killer. But she had a heart and deeply cared for only one person Cato. She spent her last moments with and a few days later they were together again, and happy like they deserve.
Clove is so underrated! She should be given a chance to show that she is more than just a ruthless killer. She was trained her whole life, no one would expect any less of her!
I think a lot of people here are misunderstanding the list's aim: it's best characters, not best "good guys". I think president snow should be higher because he is a great villain, cunning, cruel and merciless.
He was fine in the 1st book because he didn't really do anything, but in Catching Fire, right in the beginning when he threatened to kill Gale, I was like, oh hell no!
Who doesn't like psychotic dictators played by Donald Sutherland!?
Hmm, everyone? To each their own I guess...
Omg I love him so much! He is so brutal yet smart and cunning. Isn't every villain?
He was soo hilarious! Every time I read about him I literally did jazz hands!
Ok he just had a lot of energy and when Katniss was talking on stage I feel like he made her feel better. Just a thumbs up
The second I hear the trumpets playing his theme I get SO excited!
Why is he all the way down here?
Buttercup is the cutest cat ever! He slept next to Prim to protect her throughout his whole life with the Everdeen's until Prim died. At first Prims death was like any other main character's death until back in 12 Buttercup comes looking for Prim and howls and cries with Katniss after learning that Prim is gone. But the way that Buttercup moves on from what happened is what makes this cat one of my favorite characters.
He was the only one who didn't die or nearly die and yet he still gets the depression of prim's death. He also appeared on the first page of the hunger games trilogy. Best character.
Introducing the winner of every Hunger Games. Buttercup was the only character that both didn't die and didn't almost die. True survivor.
Buttercup is number one. Even though he is number fourteen, at least give him second! Buttercup could win the hunger games no doubt about it.
Alright, I just gotta say, Mags is the best. She was the most useful member of their group. She found Peeta while he was drowning, taught Katniss how to make that hook thingy, and FRIGGIN SACRIFICED HER LIFE for Peeta (who is a huge liability). She did so much more than the others and is truly underrated. (Plus, she volunteered for Annie - forgot to mention that part). And she was EIGHTY! I genuinely believe she deserved better.
Rest in peace, Mags.
She isn't my favourite. But she definitely is in my top 5 favourites in the Hunger Games. She is such a brave character. I mean from volunteering for Annie Cresta to sacrificing for Peeta by going into the poisonous fog. I obviously don't get why FoxFace is higher up. I mean FoxFace never really talked and was just trying to stay alive. Gale? Um, how exactly did he make it into the Top 10? Some few people (like meh), actually wonders what Gale have done and is actually a jerk. So
Mags is amazing! She was so brave when she volunteered for Annie. She knew that she wouldn't make it out alive, and she knew that it meant life or death. So she gladly sacrificed her life for Annie, and that's what I call a good character.
A lovely old lady who volunteered to take Annie's place in the Third Quarter Quell... And died to save Peeta, Katniss, and Finnick. Was also Finnick's mentor, and he was obviously very attached to her, so she must have been a good person.
Cato was absolutely amazing. Everyone says he was a ruthless, blood-craving beast that had no heart; but they were wrong. He had a heart, it's just that... His district taught him to show no affection; and that's how he was raised. We would be like that too if we were raised like that ALL our life. In the book, he ran to Clove's aid; sat there beside her until she died. It even says that his voice sounded pained and hurt when he heard her calling his name. He was determined, focused, and ready; not what you guys put him as. He should have won, think of it this way: All you life, you've trained for an event that comes once a year, and if you won, you'd get money, popularity, and more. ALL YOUR LIFE. Then, some girl who comes from another district ( never trained ) beats you at something you've worked for everyday since you were a kid. It hurts... I'm not going to lie. He should be first, how did a nameless tribute rank higher than him and Clove?
Cato. Yes, he was tough. He was a bad boy, a jerk, just a really bad boy. But he was amazingly well played in the movie. I'm not judging on if he was good or bad, because of course, he had no feelings for others. But his personality was so wonderful. I loved it when Glimmer was sleeping on his chest and he seemed very protective about her, and then the tracker jackers came and he just stood out and not even look back at his suffering 'friend'. Or when he was with Clove. He was just a great character; adding so much more intensity to the film.
But he couldn't help it. He volunteered, because he had confidence in himself that he would win. He was trained his entire life, and he was determined. He was tough, rough, strong and powerful. I loved him that way. I didn't love that he had no feeling to others, but I loved his unique personality, it described him well.
Anyways, Cato's cool.
Cato is one of my favorite characters because I ship him and Clove. I mean sure he looks like a heartless bloodthirsty killer but his district taught him how to control his emotions. If you read the book when clove dies he pleads for her to stay with him. Showing that he has a heart. If you think about it the families and districts of the people killed by Katniss probably thought the same thing about her because she rarely showed her emotions. The only time she did was when Rue died and when she was with Peeta ( which most people thought it was an act).
Sure Cato is a terrible terrible person but that's how he was raised. I absolutely despise him but that just shows he's a really well made character.
He is one of my favorite characters. Here's why:
1) He helped Rue. He felt bad when Rue was in the Hunger Games and wanted to help her because she was so young and small.
2) He killed Clove. I'm sorry, but Clove was a terrible character.
3) He died for Katniss. Right after he killed Clove, Cato was coming and he grabbed Cato's backpack and ran away, so Cato would chase him instead of Katniss. He saved Katniss' life with his own and let Cato kill him. Right after killing Clove, he could've easily killed Katniss. But it turns out that Katniss helped Rue so he made sure that Cato would kill him instead of Katniss. Cato could've easily killed Katniss and the only reason Katniss killed Cato later in the Games was because he was all hurt and weak. At that time he was not and would've killed Katniss, so Thresh got himself killed, so he puts others in front of himself.
Now that, my friends, is a good character.
As I said down there, Thresh is the bravest man ever, but I didn't explain why. He risked his life to help Katniss because of how she was in an alliance with a young woman in his district, Rue. Katniss was very thankful and also, the way he killed Clove was very cool, and I admire the fact that he didn't join the evil young men and women who were careers.
Thresh is so underrated. I think he is an amazing tribute. I mean, he cares about Rue enough that he spared Katniss in an act of remembrance for her. Thresh is a hero
He was so smart and strong and just a really good guy! He could have so easily killed Katniss but he didn't he chose to give up his life for her just because she was allies with Rue!
Explain to me RIGHT NOW why the District 9 Male, why wasn't important to the story in any way, is above Madge? Without Madge, Katniss wouldn't have anyone to sit with at lunch, Gale probably would've died, Rue wouldn't have trusted Katniss, and 90% of the story wouldn't happen. Explain this RIGHT NOW.
Think about it, guys. Who gave Katniss the pin? Madge did. Without Madge, Catching Fire and Mockingjay wouldn't exist, and neither would most of the storyline with Rue.
Madge was a kind friend to Katniss. She brought some medicine for Gale in a snowstorm. She sat with Katniss at lunch. And most of all, she gave the Mockingjay pin!
Catching Fire, and Mockingjay would not have been a thing without her! Rues alliance with Katniss would also not have been a thing
She deserves the world, a world in which FInnick didn't die, and they could raise their son in peace without worrying about the games, I just wish that she could have had a better life, she deserves a life without pain or the Games.
A sweet and innocent girl who won the Hunger Games almost by chance... And spent the rest of her life terrorized by it. The fact that Finnick fell in love with her speaks volumes to her true character.
She's incredibly strong, to survive the Games, and even though she was (slightly) insane, she found love, and she raised a child by herself.
She is really a good person. If only the games didn't exist, she could have been happier. Sad.
He is very suspicious but turns out to be good when he rescues Katniss and Beetee and is part of the rebellion. I honestly think he is a better game maker than Seneca Crane.
Due to her history, the strength she shows in the movies is incredible. How she continues to cope and support the revolution in memory of her love.
Cressida was such a fighter! Awesome! Always standing up for Katniss. Not my favorite, but she's up there
She's cool. She should be above Katniss and Peeta.
She is so underrated but awesome!
An amazing man who sacrificed his life for his squad and Katniss' mission... Also made the brave and wonderful move of assigning the Holo to Katniss instead of Jackson. Oh, yes, and let's not forget his sense of humor, especially in the "Do you find this distracting? " scene.
This man was the only person who wanted Katniss to complete her mission to kill snow he beveled and trusted her.
Such a great character, he died way too soon, I wish we could've seen more of him.
So sad that he died...
She was ruthlessly power hungry but much more subtle than Snow, which had the potential to make her twice as deadly. She was exceptionally well-cast; who could suspect a soft-spoken, kind-eyed, and pin-straight grey-haired Julianne Moore? She's incredibly tactful; she uses people against themselves. She's so cold that her coldness passes off as warmth - she can execute great evil and manipulation without remorse while feigning compassion and morality. Her coldness to the core enables her to execute her strategy so inconspicuously. She's practically a sociopath with tremendous intelligence and ambition. Very dangerous combination. Incredibly compelling villain.
I hate her, she used Katniss. Liar. But she is a smart, ruthless, powerful leader, so I respect her.
Honestly a great villain.
She and Snow are tied for best Villain of the series they both amazing
