The Hunger GamesEdit
The boy wasn't seen much during training, though he is mentioned to be the favorite to mentor by Laila do to being much older and stronger than her.
The boy from 8 shows a his egotistic and arrogant nature, his high training score going to his head.
Like most of the other tributes, the boy runs toward the Cornucopia and fights for supplies. He finds the District 9 Male , whom he gets in a lengthy fistfight with. The fight is brutal and long, with neither party getting much of an advantage.
The male finally gets an advantage over the 9 male, putting him into a chokehold. Before he can strangle the tribute dead, the boy is discovered by Aristides and Copper. When Copper chases after Saito and Samra, the boy stands up and attempts to take on the career leader. He is too beaten and tired though, and is swiftly killed by Aristides after a brief confrontation.
Overall, the boy placed 17th out of 24 tributes.
