Hy was the male tribute from District 5 during the 10th Hunger Games. His mentor was Dennis Fling. He was in poor health and did not even make it into the Games themselves, passing away the night before due to complications from asthma.
Hy unexpectedly died from complications from asthma the night before the Games. The veterinarian had attempted to save him, but wasn't able to.
His name may refer to hydroelectricity, a form of power.
- Not much is known about Hy, and the only time Hy is mentioned in the Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is when he dies and on the list of tributes throughout the book. This is the same for his mentor.
- Unlike Dill, who was also very sick prior to the Games, Hy dies before the games start.
- Hy is the only character known to have asthma.
