The 25th Hunger Games and first Quarter Quell took place under the presidency of Luperca Galba.
To remind the Districts of their role in the establishment of the Games, each District was required to vote for its Tributes.
Games Description Edit
Arena: Bombed-out Battlefield
The Arena was barren of any greenery. The only covering on the ground was ashy, wilted grass. A few scattered, leafless trees dotted the cratered landscape.
The Arena was devoid of any life save muttations.
Since most of the Tributes were violent criminals the Districts wanted to be rid of, it came as no one's surprise when the Bloodbath was much larger than the previous year. Six Tributes were killed, and the Careers quickly moved to kill more.
The stars of the Arena quickly proved to be the terrifying hellhound mutts devised by Gamemakers paranoid, after last year, of not being scary enough. The glowing dogs came out the first night and killed two Tributes in an act that was repeated nearly every night after.
One of the more noteworthy events of the first Quarter Quell was the death of Four Tribute Mist Hastings by mishap after drinking sponsor-sent gasoline she thought was water.
Halfway into the Games, the mutts were killed by Nairobi Ellis of District Six, who killed them with Mist's gasoline. Head Career Eltara Vetirata of District Two was caught and killed in the blaze. Although the mutts were dead, they claimed one final victim. Laeila Carter of District Eleven had been bitten previously. She developed rabies and was killed after madly attacking Emmalie Bluebell of District Nine.
The final two battle was a disappointing finale after the tense duel of the year before. Erwin Jackson of District Five easily caught Nairobi Ellis and broke her neck.
