Biography

Titus was reaped in a past Hunger Games. While in the arena, he went completely savage and resorted to cannibalism. As soon as he made a kill, he would eat their insides. Although the Hunger Games is a no-rules, free-for-all competition, cannibalism did not go well with the Capitol audience, as the Gamemakers had to censor most of his kills. The Gamemakers had to electrically stun him so that they could clear up the bodies of the tributes he had killed. He was eventually killed in an avalanche, which was thought to have been set up by the Gamemakers, to ensure that he would die and that the victor was not a lunatic. This set the precedent that cannibalism was not tolerated in the Games and would result in plotted death.

Trivia

  • The name Titus may be a reference to the Shakespeare play "Titus Andronicus" in which the titular character goes insane after the rape of his daughter, Lavinia. Though the character in the play does not commit to cannibalism himself, he does kill his daughter's rapists and tricks their mother into eating their remains. Coincidentally, Lavinia is the name of the Avox girl in the book.
  • Titus was the only known tribute to have turned into a cannibal.
  • Titus is the only District 6 citizen whose name is revealed in the series.
