Mockingjay

Tigris Character Analysis

A resident of the Capitol who is sympathetic to the rebel cause, Tigris used to be a designer for the Hunger Games. However, she was banned from the profession because she received too many surgeries—now, her face looks like a tiger’s. Tigris helps Katniss and the other rebels by giving them food and shelter, telling them where President Coriolanus Snow lives, and supplying them with warm clothing.

Chapter 23 Quotes

Everything about the situation screams trap. I have a moment of panic and find myself turning to Tigris, searching those tawny eyes. Why is she doing this? She's no Cinna, someone willing to sacrifice herself for others. This woman was the embodiment of Capitol shallowness. She was one of the stars of the Hunger Games until...until she wasn't. So is that it, then? Bitterness? Hatred? Revenge? Actually, I'm comforted by the idea. A need for revenge can burn long and hot. Especially if every glance in a mirror reinforces it.
