Florus Friend was a male resident of the Capitol and a student of the Academy. He was one of 24 top-performing seniors at the Academy selected to be a mentor for the 10th Hunger Games. He was assigned the female tribute from District 2, Sabyn.
Ultimately, Florus fared poorly, as Sabyn escaped following a bombing of the Capitol Arena, then died in a fall trying to leap over a wall.
- Florus has no lines in The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes and is mentioned only on the sheet listing the names of the mentors of the tributes that appears throughout the title.
