Tribute Parade

During the Tribute Parade, he and Foxface wore shiny and flashy silver costumes that represent District 5's main export, power and electricity.

Traning

The District 5 male was seen in several scenes in the training. During training after Peeta throws the medicine ball, he and the District 10 male are seen in the background looking doubtfully at the Career tributes. It is unknown if he made any alliances at this time.

Interviews

For the interviews with ‎Caesar Flickerman, he wore a pink suit. When Foxface has her interview with Caesar Flickerman, the District 5 male's face is shown on the screen behind along with Foxface.

Cornucopia bloodbath

The District 5 male was killed in the initial bloodbath. He stood on the pedestal next to the District 4 male. Like the majority of the tributes, he ran for supplies. After arriving at the Cornucopia, he spots the District 3 female on the ground with a black backpack. He grabs a sickle, slashes her throat and steals her bag. At some point in the bloodbath, he and the District 10 male try to kill Cato while the District 6 male watches from behind a crate. He is about to kill the District 7 female but then, the District 7 male confronts him and knocks him down with a spear, about to kill him. Fortunately Thresh passes by; distracting the District 7 male. He crawls away, but is attacked by the District 6 male, who strangles him onto a crate. He gains advantage and hurls the District 6 male's head into the crate multiple times. He later gets into a fight with Glimmer and she kills him by stabbing him in the abdomen, causing him to cough blood on a crate and eventually die.

Muttation

After his death, the District 5 male, like all the other dead tributes, had his DNA mixed with a wolf to form a muttation which had similar characteristics to the fallen tribute. It's unknown if his mutt survived or not.
