A Character Analysis Of Katniss Everdeen From The Hunger Games By Suzanne Collins

707 words - 3 pages

Traits
Katniss Everdeen is very determined. If she wants to do something, she tries until she achieves it. This is proved when Katniss wins the Hunger Games after she is told that she should try to win, by Prim, her sister and throughout the games she remembers these words and kind of uses them as her guide. She is also very strong in mental and physical ways. Her worst character trait is that she lets kind people root into her, so if someone pretends to be kind she will let them root in which means she lets them know about her and becomes easygoing with them. “A kind Peeta Mellark is far more dangerous to me than an unkind one. Kind people have a way of working their way inside me and rooting there,” (page 49). This proves that kind people have a way of rooting into her. Another important trait is that she is a survivor. She knows the way to get food to survive in any condition, like in the Hunger Games where she had to find food in the huge jungle while she was being hunted by other tributes. She also survived the Hunger Games using her skills and won, and in the process, saving another person named Peeta Mellark. Lastly, she can be very loving, but only to some people, such as Prim, her little sister (12 years old so her first year in the reaping). She tries to protect Prim throughout the book. “I protect Prim in any way I can, but I’m powerless against the reaping. The anguish I always feel when she’s in pain wells up in my chest and threatens to register on my face,” P15. She says she feels Prim’s pain and loves her very much.
