Squad 451, also known as the "Star Squad," was formed to assassinate President Snow by traversing through the pod-ridden Capitol, and to film propos . The squad consisted of Katniss Everdeen, Gale Hawthorne, Finnick Odair, Jackson, Boggs, Homes, Leeg 1, Leeg 2, Mitchell and later, Peeta Mellark, who still had issues with his previous hijacking whilst the Squad was on its missions, ultimately leading to him killing a member of the squad. As you can see below, most members didn't make it out alive.

Squad 451

The Squad consists of 10 members:

Along with the ten soldiers, Squad 451 is accompanied by Katniss's camera crew, including:

During the filming of a propo Boggs steps on a pod, blowing off his legs. Mitchell tackles Peeta. When Peeta throws him off, he triggers a second pod, getting caught in a net made of barbs and starting a wave of a tar-like substance. The team goes into a nearby house, where Katniss kills a Capitol woman when she tries to call for help. Boggs dies and transfers the Holo's voice recognition to Katniss, which angers Jackson, who first demands that Katniss transfers it to her.

They move through the Capitol and eventually find their way into the sewers and to the Transfer, where Pollux had worked as an Avox. When they awake from a night in the sewers, white lizard mutts, which Katniss says smell like blood and roses [like Snow], chase them through the sewers. Messalla is killed by a pod which melts his skin like candle wax. Jackson and Leeg 1 are killed in the "Meat Grinder", a pod with dangerous, spinning blades. Finnick, Homes, and Castor are killed by the mutts. During Finnick's death, Katniss says the keywords "Nightlock Nightlock Nightlock" to the Holo, activating the self-destruct mode, before throwing the Holo into the sewers, killing the mutts and ending Finnick's suffering. 

Cressida leads the remaining five members into her old friend, Tigris' house, who owns a fur store. They hide in the basement and while Pollux and Cressida mourn the crew's death, Gale and Peeta talk about who Katniss will choose, which she hears. They leave disguised as Capitol citizens, when a rush of Peacekeepers separate them all and capture Gale. He asks Katniss to shoot him but she fails to hear the request. The group never reunites but Pollux and Cressida are later confirmed to have survived the attack on President Snow's mansion. In a staged Capitol bombing, Prim, Katniss's sister, dies which leaves Katniss distraught.


  1. Leeg 2 is the first to die, after she steps on a Hidden pod, which shoots a dart into her brain. President Coin sends Peeta in as a replacement, noticing his hijacking is not completely undone, intending to kill Katniss. The team makes up a game called 'Real or Not Real'.
