Wovey was the female tribute from District 8 during the 10th Hunger Games. Her mentor was Hilarius Heavensbee. She was hidden in the tunnels for the majority of the Games.


10th Hunger Games

Throughout the Games, Hilarius was concerned whether Wovey was even alive and if she was just dead in the tunnels because she stayed hidden for so long. He referred to her as "no-show Wovey," lamenting that he had been unable to send her any gifts to due to her never showing herself. Probably due to being from a poorer district, Wovey was able to endure her hunger and thirst long enough to survive up to three days (not four as she dies on the fourth day) without any resources.


She was thin prior to the Games, but within a few days of the start of the Games, she emerged from hiding appearing skeletal. Hilarius quickly sent her food and water, but she only drank a few sips before she died. In fact, she had been poisoned by Lucy Gray Baird - Lucy Gray had left behind a bottle of water poisoned with rat poison, which Wovey had stumbled upon and drank.


Wovey's name comes from "wove", the past tense of the verb "to weave."


  • Wovey's death has ironic humor considering its circumstances. Hilarius doubted Wovey, and wanted her to be at least in the Top 12, which happened because 9 of the tributes died before the Games. She received sponsor gifts but died shortly after receiving them. After Wovey dies, Hilarius plainly states that it could have been worse.
