As the tributes encounter muttations in the arena, their descriptions will be posted here.
Barely anything is known about the creatures that prowl throughout the warehouse arena, because no one has ever seen them. Their name comes from where they are found: The Darkness. Wherever they go, the lights go out. And if you find yourself in the dark with one, you’re already gone.
The Mannequins are not actually mannequins. Rather, they are androids that, when touched, transform into a tribute from a previous Games. The summoned tribute will be from the same district as the tribute who touched it, and will protect their district until they are destroyed.
Grace Walter was the District 1 female tribute in last year’s Games. One of the weaker Career tributes, she managed to outlast the Career boys and survive a night trapped outside her base, before being shot on Day 12 by the boy from 9.
Avery LaPan was the District 2 female tribute in the Hunger Games that took place two years ago. In those Games, she was a powerhouse, racking up the most kills out of any tribute, including an incredible three kills during the Feast. Favored to take home the victory, she fell in the finale against the girl from 3.
Arguably one of the strongest tributes of last year’s Hunger Games, Hannah Cruz entered the competition with her brother Rene, both representing District 3. When he died on Day 5, she went insane, viciously attacking any tribute that she came across, and swearing revenge against the girl from 4 who had killed her brother. On Day 13 she got her chance at revenge, but fell to the girl from 4 in single-combat.
Peyton Finley was the District 6 male tribute in last year’s Games. A stubborn but unskilled boy, he was kicked out of his alliance on the first day of the Games for a low training score. Refusing to leave, he was killed by Hannah Cruz of District 3 after a short battle.
Abby Long entered her games as a pacifist, representing District 7. Teaming up with a group of girls, she watched helplessly as two of them were killed off in the first three days of the Games, leaving her and Sarah Harrist of District 11 as the remnant of her alliance. On Day 9, she sacrificed herself to let Sarah escape from Hannah Cruz of District 3, who ended up strangling her to death. Her ally would go on to win the Games.
Preston Howell was the male tribute from District 10. A charming and cunning tribute, he tricked his ally into being killed by Careers early on in the Games, taking his supplies for himself. Lasting until Day 13, he fell in combat against his district partner, making him the last male tribute in his Games to die.
Sarah Harrist was the District 11 female tribute of last year’s Games. Starting off in an alliance of four girls, she found herself alone after only nine days. Sarah proved her worth on Day 13, decapitating the girl from 4, arguably the strongest female tribute in the Games. From there, she managed to make it to the finale, where she came out victorious against the girl from 5.
Alex Dooley was the District 12 male tribute in last year’s Games. Though many had faith in his potential, he became the first male tribute to die after being cornered by the Careers during the bloodbath, his ally having abandoned him.
