|Occupation||Tribute, Mentor, Victor|
|Home||Victors' Village in District 11|
|Portrayed by||Maria Howell|
- "The woman, Seeder, looks almost like she could be from the Seam, with her olive skin and straight black hair streaked with silver. Only her golden brown eyes mark her as from another district. She must be around sixty, but she still looks strong, and there’s no sign she’s turned to liquor or morphling or any form of chemical escape over the years."
- ―Katniss Everdeen[src]
Seeder was the victor of an unspecified Hunger Games, and after she won, did not turn to drinking or morphling, but instead tried to remain healthy. She was reaped again for the 75th Hunger Games, a Quarter Quell.
During Seeder's interview with Caesar Flickerman, she quietly talked about how the people of District 11 all think President Snow is all-powerful and asked, "If he is so powerful why couldn't he just change the Quell?" Seeder, along with every other victor, held hands after the interviews as a sign of solidarity, that Snow interpreted as a rebellion. In the film she wore a light brown dress which reached her shins and wore small brown boots.
The Games Edit
Seeder embraced Katniss after the chariot rides through the Capitol, assuring her that both Thresh's and Rue's families were safe, as the uprising had started in District 11 during the tour that followed the 74th Hunger Games. During the time between training and the opening to the Quarter Quell, Katniss decided she wanted Seeder as her ally in the arena, but overall decided against having allies as she was getting too close to the other competitors, thinking she wouldn't be able to kill them in the end to ensure Peeta's victory. Katniss mentioned that she wanted Seeder as an alliance member but she wasn't sure that she wanted Chaff.
She was killed in the initial Cornucopia bloodbath by Cashmere, who threw a knife into her neck. In the film she survived for 1 minute and 57 seconds
Seeder had olive skin, straight black hair streaked with silver, and golden brown eyes. Katniss thought that aside from her eyes, she looked like she came from the Seam. She appeared to be about 60 years old in Catching Fire. Katniss took to her not only because she was kind and gentle as a person, but because she ultimately reminded her of Rue.
Seeder was a very kind, polite, gentle and positive woman. The first thing Seeder did when she saw Katniss was whisper in her ear that Thresh and Rue's families were safe, which gave Katniss relief. Seeder was friendly to Katniss and ate with her in lunch during training. She also seemed to be confident: during her interview she strongly and quietly stated that the Quarter Quell was wrong and President Snow could stop it if he wanted. Seeder was very motherly as well, all of which prompted Katniss to want her as an ally.
Film portrayalEditSeeder is portrayed by Maria Howell in the film, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
- In the film, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Seeder has dark skin instead of olive skin, and her hair is even darker without any streaks of silver, unlike her book appearance.
- Also, Seeder does not have any lines in the film and only nods curtly to Katniss and Peeta instead of embracing Katniss and speaking with her. Her interviews are not shown either.
