Katniss Everdeen characterization Katniss Everdeen is not just the16year old main character of the novel "The hunger games" she is also the narrator and telling the story out of her own perspective. first person She has long, dark brown hair and lives with her family on the edge of 12 district of the city of Panem. The part of the district where their little house is standing is called “The Seam”, it is the poorest part of the coal mining city. Her family consists of her little sister Primrose, her mother and their cat Buttercup. Her father died in a mine explosion when she was 11 years old. Katniss hobbies are hunting and going into the woods with her best friend Gale. She does not really have a lot of friends mainly because she does not have a lot of time because all she does is going to school and hunting to keep her family alive. Her only friends are Gale, Peeta, Madge, Cinna and Rue. She does not have a boyfriend even though Peeta has been in love with her since they met the first day of school. She was never interested in boys, even if she fell in love with Peeta during the Games and realizes her feelings for Gale...

at the same time she is still confused about her feelings and not ready for a serious relationship. Another reason for her lack of romantic relationships could also be that she does not have time for this type of things. After the death of her father she had to take care of her family because her mother got depressed and could not take care of them anymore. She had to be mature at a very young age in order to keep her, Prim and their mother alive by going hunting for food almost everyday and selling things on the black market. These things also show that she is self- sacrificing because she gave up any other hobbies and friendships to spend her whole life on taking care of her family. But she also says that she only does this for Prim because she is mad at her mother that she left them alone after their fathers died. (“Perhaps it is a sickness, but its one we can't afford" P.40) This behavior clearly indicates that she is protective especially about her sister and later about Rue because she reminds her of Prim. There are several moments where one can see how empathetic and protective she really is. For example does she not only take care of her whole family, she also volunteers for the hunger games and thus saves her sisters life even though she thinks she will probably die. (P. 28) Furthermore she risks her life for Peeta to get him the life saving medicine, which is not only caring but also very brave of her because the chance of dying is really high. (P. 239). Katniss also appears to be compassionate since she always feels bad when someone dies. Even if this is actually good for her, as it increases her chances of survival, she always thinks of the families of the dead tributes and that they certainly feel exactly the same as her family does. This reveals that she is smart because she understands that she should hate the Capitol and not the other tributes which are in the same situation as her (“It's the Capitol I hate, for doing this to all of us." P.203). Moreover she "feel(s) sick" (P.250) when she thinks of bloody encounters with other tributes. This is also the reason why she only kills when it is really necessary, for example does she only kill some of the career tribute because other wise they would kill her (P. 164) and the only reason she killed Cato was out of pity (P. 289). Even thought she is empathic she is still unsentimental; her main goal is surviving, and during her time in District 12 she learned that feelings are not helping to reach that goal. That's also why she is bad at sweet talking to Peeta and hates her role as his love interest. This can be seen on Page 258 where she only tries to be lovely in order to get food from her sponsors. ("I swallow hard and get the words out") Another significant aspect is that she is rebellious, proof of this can be found on Page 292 where she outplays the Gamemakers in order to win together with Peeta. But there are several situations where she sends a clear message against the superiors, or breaks their rules knowing she could be killed for her actions. Hunting in a forbidden forest and covering Rue with flowers after her death are a few things she does to riot against the system. These things also underline the fact that she is wayward she does not want to play a role doing the interviews even if it would help her to survive, Katniss does not want to be part of their show and even the begging of her team leader and coach Haymitch cannot convince her that playing along is necessary. (P. 107) All in all one could say that Katniss is a really determined person, which always tries to protect her loved ones even if it means to risk her own life by doing things that could get her in a lot of trouble because she is really empathetic and self-sacrificing. Besides that she is really mature for her age and already understood that the system she lives in is unrightful.
