The Hunger Games Wiki

The first Mellark son was the first child of Mr. and Mrs. Mellark and the older brother of an unnamed boy and Peeta Mellark.


The Mellarks' first son was born in District 12. He was never reaped for the Hunger Games. According to Katniss Everdeen, he was often at the Mellark bakery and was older than 18 when Peeta was reaped for the 74th Hunger Games; he might have volunteered if he was younger.

It is revealed in Mockingjay that he and the rest of Peeta's family were unable to escape and were killed when District 12 was bombed by the Capitol.
