Tribute ParadeEdit

In the film, he is seen on the chariots with his district partner in the Tribute Parade wearing silver suits and headpieces, possibly representing Silos (where they store grain). He and his district partner are hardly seen in the chariot scene; as the camera focuses on the District 8 partners, they are both seen waving.


He is seen making a fire and backing away with the District 3 male. In the behind the scenes DVD, the District 9 male can be seen in the line to the left as Peeta runs on the gauntlets.

Cornucopia bloodbathEdit

In the novel, the District 9 male dies in the bloodbath. Shortly after the 74th Hunger Games begin, he fights with Katniss over a small backpack. Clove throws a knife into his back, killing him instantly, and causing him to cough up blood into Katniss' face. In the film, he fights Cato over a water canteen but Cato hits him in the stomach and throws him over a crate. After the fight he grabs an axe and chases Katniss. Before he can kill Katniss, he is killed by Clove but he did not cough the blood in Katniss face, instead he fell to his death beside Katniss, just as he was about to kill her. He places 24th in the book and 20th in the movie.


After his death, the District 9 male, like all the other dead tributes, had his DNA mixed with a wolf to form a muttation which had similar characteristics to the fallen tribute. His mutt had ashen fur and hazel eyes. It's unknown whether his mutt survived or was killed in battle. His mutt was also identified by Katniss.
