In the film, the District 8 female was first seen in the Tribute Parade with her district partner, wearing pink and blue costumes that symbolize jesters and fabrics with a star pattern and bow hats on them. She was seen in quite a few shots during parade scenes, waving at the audience.


It is unknown if she showed up for the training.

Cornucopia bloodbath

The District 8 female survived the initial Cornucopia bloodbath, and managed to escape into the forest. It is unknown if she was able to grab any supplies or weapons before leaving the Cornucopia.

The Games

"A stone's throw from the biggest idiot in the Games."
Katniss Everdeen after the girl lit the fire.

She watched the Fallen images and tried to sleep, but she gave in to the cold and starts a fire near a tree which Katniss Everdeen was resting in, which she thought was a "foolish" decision. Sure enough, the light from her fire attracted the Career tributes to her location during early morning. In the movie, Cato hands Glimmer his sword and she stabs her to death, and after Katniss heard her scream, the cannon sounded. In the book, she is stabbed. The Careers leave to allow them to take the body, but after hearing no cannon, they become uneasy and begin arguing. Peeta goes back to finish her off. She placed 13th out of 24 in the book and 12th out of 24 in the film.


The District 8 girl`s ID card

Following her death, her DNA was mixed with that of a wolf-like creature to create the "muttations", which were the key figures for the finale of the 74th annual Hunger Games.  It is unknown if her mutt survived the fight at the Cornucopia between Katniss and Peeta, and Cato.


The District 8 female's picture is shown on the board.

  • Her odds of winning were 5-1.
  • In the film, she weighs 116 pounds and is 13 years old.
  • In the tribute parade, the females were standing on the left of the chariot and the males on the right except for District 8 where she stood on the right and the male on the left.
  • The District 8 female, the District 9 tributes, and the District 10 female were considered extra characters and they only had shots in the parade scene but she appears during the first night. She is also the only extra character to survive the bloodbath.
  • She lasted 8 hours, 12 minutes and 8 seconds in the Hunger Games.
  • She was Peeta's only known direct kill in the 74th Hunger Games.
  • When she died, on the scoreboard behind Caesar, it can seen a wrong order of deaths: District 9 male; District 3 female; District 9 female; District 6 male; District 5 male; District 6 female; District 7 male; District 7 female; District 8 male; District 10 female; District 4 female; District 4 male.
  • She, along with Cato, was one of the tributes in the 74th Hunger Games to be mortally wounded and then mercifully killed. She was mortally wounded by Cato and then mercifully killed by Peeta in the book, while Cato was mauled by mutts, and mercifully killed by Katniss.
  • The night that Katniss was without a sleeping bag, she began to "have more sympathy" for the District 8 girl.
  • In The Hunger Games: Catching Fire she, like her district partner, appears as a holographic portrait in Katniss and Peeta's Victory Tour.

  • As we can see in Katniss and Peeta's Victory Tour there is only one man and one woman standing in her pedestal, so the District 8 female has no siblings, and in the pedestal of her district partner there is only one man, so the District 8 male from the 74th Hunger Games has no mother or siblings.
