"After lunch I do the edible-insect station with the District 8 tributes... Woof, a really old guy who’s hard of hearing and doesn’t seem to know what’s going on since he keeps trying to stuff poisonous bugs in his mouth."
Katniss Everdeen describing Woof.[src]

Woof was the District 8 male tribute who participated in the 75th Hunger Games, as well as the victor of an unspecified Hunger Games. He was a mentor for District 8 tributes who competed after him even though he is said to be senile due to his old age. He was also the second oldest tribute to participate in the 75th Hunger Games, behind Mags.

75th Hunger GamesEdit

After being reaped to participate in the third Quarter Quell alongside many other past victors, including fellow District 8 tribute and victor Cecelia, Woof was brought to the Capitol.

join them at the edible bug station. It seemed to Katniss that Woof was oblivious to what was happening, as he kept trying to eat poisonous bugs rather than safer ones. Katniss thought he was hard of hearing thus she decided he would be a bad choice for an ally.

InterviewEdit

Woof joined hands with the other twenty-three tributes as a sign of rebellion in the interviews.

DeathEdit

Woof was killed in the initial Cornucopia bloodbath, presumably killed by one of the Careers and probably placed 23rd, surviving for 1 minute and 5 seconds.

After the Games, Katniss found out that Woof was part of a secret alliance to keep her alive, along with 11 other victors.

Physical descriptionEdit

Woof was described by Katniss as being old, much like Seeder and Mags, who was hard of hearing and had started to lose his ability to focus. He was generally not seen as a threat, and was killed quite fast.

Film portrayalEdit

John Casino portrayed Woof in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

TriviaEdit

  • In the film, neither Woof nor Cecelia are seen during the Fallen broadcast on the first night of the Games, as their faces are replaced by the saddened expressions of Katniss, Peeta, Finnick, and Mags' towards the deceased.
  • A woof is the sound a dog makes, and dogs typically stand by their owners. This parallel's his behavior: always at Cecelia's side. Woof also refers to the threads that run crosswise in a woven fabric. This name meaning makes sense as Woof hails from District 8 which produces textiles.
  • Woof was presumably the second tribute to die after the District 5 male, because you see him trip when Katniss was running and it is presumed the second cannon to sound symbolizes his death, so he died 1 minute and 5 seconds after the start of the games.
