The Girl on Fire
Bow and Arrow
She was very trained with a bow, which was a major plus for gaining sponsors, people who send food, ointment, water, etc. to tributes. Her skills earned her the highest score on the showcase for sponsors, an 11 out of 12.
Close People to Katniss
District 12 is the mining district, and its a very poor one. They only have one alive Victor (someone who won the games) and it is in our area in the future (Mid-Atlantic Ridge). Mining is dangerous, lots of people (including Katniss), lost fathers, brothers, sons, etc. in a mine explosion when she was 5.
In The Games
Katniss scored very well in the show case, which made a lot of people want to be her ally. She decided to be a lone wolf, until she met Rue. Rue helped her kill Glimmer and saved her life. She saw some of her sister in Rue, she did not want to let Rue die. Marvel, someone from District 1, threw a spear at Rue, resulting in Katniss shooting him. She covered her in flowers and sang to her while she died.
Finishing the Games
The last two people in the games were Peeta and Katniss, and they were not going to kill each other, so they threatened to both commit suicide. The people wanted a winner, so when they threatened to kill themselves, they let them both be victors.
