The Hunger Games Wiki

"No one speaks. I can’t pretend I knew any of them well.... Even the thought of the glazed-eyed morphling painting my cheeks with yellow flowers gives me a pang. All dead. All gone."
Katniss Everdeen remembering the Male Morphling.[src]

The District 6 male (nicknamed "the Male Morphling") was the male tribute from District 6 who participated in the 75th Hunger Games. He was the victor of an unspecified Hunger Games, in which he, like his district partner, used camouflage to hide until the other tributes were dead. Being a victor, it's presumed he mentored as well.

Sometime after he won, he eventually became a painter and a morphling addict. The District 6 male was part of the rebellion's alliance during the 75th Hunger Games.

He appeared during training and made a mess at the painting station along with his district partner. During the interviews, he wore a black leather jacket and matching pants. He joined hands with the other victors at the end of the interviews.

The District 6 male was killed in the initial Cornucopia bloodbath on the first day of the Games. Like most of the tributes, he ran for supplies. It is presumed that he was killed by one of the Careers. He placed around 17th-23rd.

Katniss was dismayed by his death and grieves for him, Cecelia, and Seeder later that night.

At the end of Catching Fire, when Katniss flies towards District 13, Haymitch revealed that he was one of the 12 victors who knew of the rebellion and was part of the alliance to save Katniss.
