Sol was the female tribute from District 5 during the 10th Hunger Games. Her mentor was Iphigenia Moss.

Biography

Sol grew up in District 5 and became her district's female tribute in the Reaping for the 10th Hunger Games.[1]

Along with the other tributes, Sol was taken to the Capitol in a dirty cattle car. From there, they were dumped into the monkey house at the Capitol Zoo.[2]

Death

On the afternoon of the second day, Sol began to climb the bleachers at the furthest end of the Capitol Arena. As her mentor, Iphigenia Moss, sent her food, an alliance comprised of Coral and Mizzen, the two tributes from District 4, and Tanner, the male tribute from District 10, chased her down. After a brief chase, they caught up with her, and Coral speared Sol through the throat with a trident.[3]

Physical appearance

Coriolanus Snow described Sol as a rickety little thing. Sol also had what her mentor thought was a "funny accent", making her speech harder to comprehend.[3]

Etymology

Sol's name may come from the term "solar power", as in harvesting energy from the sun's light and heat. Sol is also Latin for sun and the personification of the Sun and a god in ancient Roman religion.

Trivia

  • Sol is the only tribute not to receive a sponsor gift besides Marcus, who died thirty minutes within the Games start.
  • Sol was described by her mentor as having a "funny accent" that her name was either "Sol" or "Sal."
