"I don't know how to say it exactly. Only...I want to die as myself. I don't want them to change me in there. Turn me into some kind of monster that I'm not. I keep wishing I could think of a way show the Capitol that they don't own me. That I'm more than just a piece in their Games.
~ Peeta to Katniss.

Peeta Mellark is a male tribute in District 12 who enters the Hunger Games in two consecutive years. He is the deuteragonist of the book and in the Hunger Games trilogy in the film.

He is portrayed by Josh Hutcherson, who also voiced Nod in Epic, and portrayed Sean Anderson in The Journey series.


He first met Katniss slightly when he gave her burnt bread when Katniss was starving. He survived the 74th Hunger Games along with Katniss Everdeen, his fellow partner in District 12 by almost eating poisonous berries. Their excuse to Panem, for why they defied the capital was because Peeta had confessed his love to Katniss during the interview to make her seem wanted, and get sponsors during the games.

Katniss played this angle, as star-struck lovers, throughout the games to make it seem they could not live without the other. During the Third Quarter Quell (75th Hunger Games), however, he's taken away by the Capitol's hovercraft, along with Johanna Mason, the female tribute from District 7 and Enobaria, the female tribute from District 2.
