Velvereen was the female tribute from District 1 for the 10th Hunger Games. Her mentor was Palmyra Monty. She along with her District partner Facet we're murdered by Peacekeepers while attempting to flee after a bombing in the Capitol Arena before the Games commenced.
While touring the Capitol Arena with her mentor Palmyra Monty and the other remaining 22 tribute-mentor pairs, several bombs planted by the rebels were detonated. These explosions created a new cracked opening by the entrance of the arena. Velvereen, along with her district partner Facet and the tributes from District 2, Sabyn and Marcus, used the resulting chaos as an opportunity for a possible escape. She was shot dead by Peacekeepers before she could reach the opening.
Velvereen's name may be a reference to velveteen, a type of cloth made to imitate velvet.
- Despite being reaped, Velvereen never competed in the 10th Hunger games.
- She was implied to be one of the stronger tributes, as Coriolanus Snow mentioned that with the deaths of the District 1 & 2 tributes, Lucy Gray's odds of winning significantly increased.
