Treech was the male tribute of District 7 in the 10th Hunger Games. His mentor was Vipsania Sickle.

Biography

Treech grew up in District 7 and became his district's male tribute in the Reaping for the 10th Hunger Games.[1]

Along with the other tributes, Treech was taken to the Capitol in a dirty cattle car. From there, they were dumped into the monkey house at the Capitol Zoo.[2] While in the zoo, Treech made a good show of juggling three walnuts in an attempt to receive more food from the Capitol citizens.[3]

10th Hunger Games

On the first day of the Games, Treech sneakily stole Dill's two bottles of water she had received by sponsors. While Dill's mentor, Felix Ravinstill, said that the action was harsh, Treech's mentor, Vipsania Sickle, was pleased as it saved her money for more sponsor gifts.[4] Treech emerged once again after his district partner, Lamina died, by taking her ax, now armed with a weapon.[5] Treech later attempted to kill the District 3 duo of Circ and Teslee, but they noticed him and ran. However, all three of them stopped to look at the snake tank dropped by Dr. Volumnia Gaul. When the tank had burst, Treech ran right away, which saved his life unlike Circ, whose moment of confusion cost his life. He managed to climb out onto the narrow shelf over the scoreboard.[6]

His first kill would be Teslee while she was distracted by having just succeeded in killing Mizzen. The screens were closed onto Teslee, so no one noticed Treech until it was too late as he dug his ax into her skull. He then collected a dozen parcels of food and withdrew behind the barricade.[7] Treech later tried to kill Lucy Gray Baird on the final day of the Games, but failed.

Death

When Treech attempted to attack Lucy Gray, he swung out from behind the barricade with his ax and caught her wrist. However, she dodged the blow, diving towards him and pulling him into what appeared like an embrace. In the process, she dropped a snake mutt down his shirt, and it killed him as he smashed it into the ground. He reached third place.[7]

Physical appearance

Treech had black hair.[4]

Etymology

Treech's name comes from the word "tree."

Trivia

  • Treech was mainly reliant on other tributes throughout the Games.
  • Treech has the most failed attempts at killing other tributes (2), being Circ and Teslee, and Lucy Gray. However, he proves to be quite sneaky and deadly despite not grabbing a weapon at the Games's start, a similar tactic to a future District 7 victor, Johanna Mason.
