  2. #2
    Name: Gossamer Portmore



    District: One

    Age: 18

    Selection Details: Career tribute, volunteered

    Physical appearance: 5'4", 115 pounds. Dark brown hair and eyes, and medium skin tone. Muscular, athletic build.

    Skills: Knife throwing, shortswords, spear, bow and arrow, and hand-to-hand combat. Unlike many District One tributes who falter because they are not accustomed to shortages, Gossamer has trained herself to endure harsh conditions to prepare her body and mind for the arena.

    Training Score (1-12): 11

    Publicity Bio: Gossamer's brother, Slate Portmore, volunteered as a tribute in last year's Games. Sadly, he did not win; although he proved a ruthless fighter in the arena, he was killed by an unlikely alliance of tributes from Districts Five, Six, Seven, and Eight. This year, Gossamer volunteered as tribute as her brother did last Games, and seeks revenge in the arena. With her impressive skills and personal vendetta, betting citizens are laying good odds that Gossamer Portmore may win it all!

    Name: Mouse Minkimen



    District: Eight

    Age: 12

    Selection Details: Standard reaping, no volunteers

    Physical appearance: 4'8", 88 pounds. Copper red hair, green eyes, pale skin, and freckles. Her frame is slender, and her expression is usually solemn.

    Skills: Mouse has nimble fingers from changing spools at the thread factory, and is good at squeezing into tight spaces.

    Training Score (1-12): 6

    Publicity Bio: Mouse was abandoned as a baby, and grew up in a children's home in District Eight. The surname she uses was assigned by the home's director, and she has been called "Mouse" for so long that no one remembers what her formal given name is, or if she ever had one. She works part-time at a thread factory after school to pay for her keep. In her first Reaping, she was chosen as tribute and no one volunteered to take her place. Mouse does her best to be brave and not to show how frightened she is of the arena. Odds-makers consider her a definite underdog, but you never know in the Hunger Games!

  4. #4
    Name: Lucretia Vane



    District: Six

    Age: 15

    Selection Details: Standard reaping, no volunteers

    Physical appearance: 5'5", 130 pounds. Strawberry blonde/red hair, blue eyes, pale skin. Her build is not particularly athletic, but she is in decent health.

    Skills: Trainers have not identified any specific perceptible skills that could benefit her in the Games, although she is fairly intelligent.

    Training Score (1-12): 2

    Publicity Bio: Her mother died in a train construction accident when Lucretia was a small child, and her father was permanently disabled in the same incident. As a result, their existence has always been frugal. She has no siblings, and is an average student.

    [Editor's note: Do we have any information on this tribute? No one seems to know who she is?]

    [Fact-finder's reply: Who cares? She'll be one of the first to be taken out, anyway, and she's not adorable so there's no human interest angle. No one wants to waste time reading about her.]

    [Editor: Fine, I'll just publish what we have. Make sure these internal memo notes are deleted before this goes to air, alright?]

    Name: Shon Dietrich



    District: Five

    Age: 16

    Selection Details: Standard reaping, no volunteers

    Physical appearance: 5’10”, 155 lbs. Black hair, brown eyes

    Skills: Exceptional balance, excellent core strength

    Training Score (1-12): 7

    Publicity Bio: Shon’s mother died of cholera when he was six, leaving him to be raised by his father. His father is a lead hydro-engineer who works in the generating stations all over District Five. Shon has been employed to check lines by wheeling from tower to tower on a two-wheeled cart miles above the ground. What he lacks in Games experience, he certainly makes up for with courage!

  6. #6
    Name: Maia McCarroll



    District: Four

    Age: 16

    Selection Details: standard reaping

    Physical appearance: 5'5", 117lbs, slim female build. Brown hair with natural blonde highlights, olive skin tone, brown eyes.

    Skills: Fishing, swimming, sailing, javelin, and trident. She is also skilled at knot-tying.

    Training Score (1-12): 8

    Publicity Bio: Maia hails from a large family in District 4, and comes to this year's Hunger Games with her twin brother. Never in the history of the Games have twin siblings come to the Games in the same year. Spectators should watch them closely, as only one can emerge from the Games alive. Maia's cleverness and maritime skill make her a tenacious foe!

    Name: Dorian McCarroll



    District: Four

    Age: 16

    Physical appearance: 5'7", 145lbs, athletic build. Brown hair with natural blonde highlights, olive skin tone, brown eyes.

    Skills: Fishing, swimming, sailing, running, javelin, and trident. He has a very strong upper body and can lift a great deal.

    Training Score (1-12): 8

    Publicity Bio: Dorian hails from a large family in District 4, and comes to this year's Hunger Games with his twin sister. Never in the history of the Games have twin siblings come to the Games in the same year. Spectators should watch them closely, as only one can emerge from the Games alive. Dorian's strength and speed make him a tough competitor from District 4!

  8. #8
    Name: Bianca Ashby



    District: Ten

    Age: 18

    Selection Details: Standard reaping, no volunteers.

    Physical appearance: 5'6", 135 pounds. Ash blond hair, light blue eyes, light skin. Average build.

    Skills: Excellent with animal handling, cooking, outdoor survival, and can lift heavy objects, extremely clever and resourceful

    Training Score (1-12): 6

    Publicity Bio: Bianca is the eldest child of Jenneva Ashby, mayor of District 10. Her mother is at the head of the most prominent and productive ranch in the entire District. Bianca worked on her mother’s farm growing up, gaining her invaluable skills with animals and survival knowledge that only comes with experience. Bianca was also at the top of her class in school, and will prove to be an intellectual competitor for all of her fellow tributes!

  9. #9
    Name: Quintillus "Quint" Aaronson



    District: Two

    Age: 18

    Selection Details: Career tribute, volunteered

    Physical appearance: 6'2", with a strong but lithe build. Tan skin, a sprinkling of freckles across his nose and cheekbones, piercing light blue-green eyes, and sandy brown hair. Quint has a lean, hawkish appearance.

    Skills: Swords, spear, javelin, mace, bow and arrow, and hand-to-hand combat. He is capable of great endurance and physical strength, but is also a noteworthy sprinter.

    Training Score (1-12): 11

    Publicity Bio: For as long as he can remember, Quint's greatest dream in life has been to compete in the Hunger Games - and to return as victor. There has been little room in his life for anything but his dream; nothing and no one will get in his way. Quint was the late in life child of a retired Peacekeeper and a weapons designer, and he has taken his parents' strength and deadliness and combined it with his own particular brand of ambition. As one of the stronger and more skilled competitors, Quint is considered another strong contender for victory in this years Games.

  10. #10
    Name: Dora Brighten



    District: One

    Age: 14

    Selection Details: Career tribute, volunteered in the second Reaping of the year that was held to replace the female tribute from District Five who committed suicide during training

    Physical appearance: 5'1", 99 pounds. Short and slender, lean and agile. She has dark blonde hair cut in layers, blue eyes, a slightly sharp nose, and a pleasant smile that hides the very driven nature underneath. Dora doesn't look all that threatening, but looks can be deceiving.

    Skills: Knife throwing, bow and arrow, javelin, and spear. Excellent tracking skills and knowledge of poisons. She also has some basic training in hand-to-hand and with swords, but she prefers to attack from range and avoid direct contests of physical strength.

    Training Score (1-12): 9

    Publicity Bio: Dora is one of the youngest tributes ever to join the all-volunteer ranks of District One. This year her district was granted the unprecedented chance of a second Reaping, and her thirst to compete won her the opportunity to go to the Games. The astute viewer may notice that Dora shares a surname with one of the District One mentors - Allasayne Brighten is, in fact, Dora's aunt. We're all excited to see how well Allasayne Brighten mentors another tribute to compete against her own beloved niece! Although betting types consider it unlikely that Dora has the potential to triumph over the two older and stronger tributes from her district, she should be a fierce competitor, and is definitely one to watch. We may just see an unexpected upset!
