The Hunger Games Wiki

Iphigenia Moss was a female resident of the Capitol and a student of the Academy. She was one of 24 top-performing seniors at the Academy selected to be a mentor for the 10th Hunger Games. She was assigned the female tribute from District 5, Sol.[1]


Her father oversaw the Agriculture Department, which controlled the flow of food around Panem. She was considered "forgettable," and despite her father's job, always seemed to be on the verge of malnutrition. Clemensia Dovecote told Coriolanus Snow that this was Moss's revenge on her father, but did not provide any further details.

When Sol emerged in the arena, Iphigenia began to send every bit of food she could, but her tribute was killed by a trident to the throat from Coral, the female tribute from District 4. Afterwards, she spoke briefly with Lepidus Malmsey of Capitol News, referring to her tribute as being named either "Sol, or maybe Sal" and saying that she had a funny accent. In response, Lepidus congratulated her on getting her tribute to the second half and mistakenly addressed her as "Albina."[2]


Iphigenia was the legendary princess of Mycenae, and daughter of legendary King Agamemnon, who led the campaign of the Trojan War. Due to offending the Greek goddess Artemis, King Agamemnon could not sail to the Trojan War, and was forced to sacrifice his daughter to the gods in order to get favor from them again.
