We are at our most vulnerable when we are at ease.
Years after the uprising led by the legendary girl on fire, Katniss Everdeen, the Capitol strikes back with a vengeance. Tributes, I welcome you to the 76th Hunger Games, where rebellion is much more of an issue than the actual games. This time, Panem faces new obstacles as The Capitol is back with forces much stronger than before, and theirs much weaker. Join the people of Panem as they battle against all odds.
The Capitol | 23 | FC: Ed Westwick | Non-playable
Nero Blackburn is not who you think he is. Well, that is if you think he’s just another spoiled Capitol brat, which is more or less your first impression of him. He is the adopted son of the Head Gamemaker, Lady Minerva. Despite it being known that he is adopted, his real parentage was never revealed to the public. It was unknown whether he, himself, knew about his parentage or not. Like his namesake, he is a ruler. He is known for being one of the Capitol’s youngest presidents, as well as one of the weakest. This weakness leads the people of Panem to believe that he is incapable of taking their freedom away from them, and the citizens of the Capitol who long to feel so much more superior than everyone else to resent him and his ways of leadership.
Despite his weak and seemingly nice personality, his ways of ruling have been proved to be very efficient, but unknown to many, Nero does not really rule of the land of Panem. He does not give solutions to their problems or think of ways to improve the country. He is simply there to pose as the president, not serve as one. As in a game of chess, one would say he is the king, the most important piece, yet the most useless. So if he’s just another piece in the games, then who’s controlling these pieces?
