Template:Character Mags was the female tribute from District 4 during the 75th Hunger Games, for which she volunteered, as well as a previous, unspecified Hunger Games, possibly the 7th-13th Hunger Games.


Being a previous victor and a mentor for the tributes of District 4, Finnick Odair and Annie Cresta, Mags, an eighty year old woman, loyally volunteered for the 75th Hunger Games in the place of Annie, becoming a tribute alongside Finnick. She babbles every time she talks, and Katniss believes it is because of a possible stroke she may have had in the past. While in training for the third Quarter Quell, Katniss Everdeen watched as Mags displayed her skill of being able to make fishhooks out of nearly anything. This skill, plus the fact that she volunteered to take Annie Cresta's place, made Katniss want Mags to be one of her allies in the arena.

While competing in the third Quarter Quell, Mags joined an alliance with Katniss, Peeta, and Finnick. She was carried by Finnick most of the time as she wasn't able to walk very fast. Finnick and Mags are flung back when Peeta walks into the force field, due to the force of Peeta being thrust back. When Katniss throws some nuts at the force field to determine where it is, Mags eats a mouthful of them. Katniss is alarmed and they don't know if the nuts are poisonous, but Finnick allows her to since he believes she knows what she's doing. She and Finnick begin to weave objects with big sharp grass while Katniss hunts for water and food. When she returns, they have made a hut and bowls. Mags is deeply sad when the first day of the games is over and the faces of tributes who have died are shown. Mags is saddened when she sees the faces of the tributes who have died, and ponders how the device that is sent from the mentors and sponsors work. Katniss asks if she can fish with it but she could not, and is enlightened when they find out it gets water from trees. She and Peeta are not alarmed by the twelve bells rung during the night as they were asleep.


Mags died on day two of the Quarter Quell. When the poisonous fog was emitted, Finnick carried her while she was sleeping. When the fog damaged Peeta's legs and rendered him unable to walk, Katniss carried Mags as she was unable to help Peeta, but Katniss was also affected by the fog, and Finnick was unable to carry both Peeta and Mags. Realizing that they would be killed by the fog if they could not move faster, Mags kissed Finnick on the lips and courageously sacrificed herself to the fog so Finnick, Katniss and Peeta could live. Katniss described Mags as "falling to the ground in a horrible dance" when she was dying.

When Johanna Mason states that Mags was half of Finnick's family, Katniss feels great remorse. Later, it is discovered that Mags was part of an even bigger alliance that is set on keeping Peeta and Katniss alive, which had at least twelve members.


  • It is said by Katniss that Mags could make a fishhook out of anything. This being seen in the Training Center.
  • It is likely that Mags was a career tribute in the 7th-13th Hunger Games as District 4 is known for having career tributes.
  • If Katniss is correct about Mags' age, then she is the only character in the trilogy to be alive before the Hunger Games started, being five when they began. Template:SeriesTP
