Answer the following questions in no less than 300 words but no greater than 1000 words put together...

Character's background (their past and present): Peeta was raised as the youngest of three sons belonging to the Bakers of District 12 in Panem. His father was a very doting, but distant man, while his mother was considered "The Witch" and was physically violent, even toward her children, when angry. Though Peeta's family sits in what the middle of the economic range is for District 12, they are still not very well off.

At the age of 16, Peeta Mellark was called as a Tribute for the Hunger Games. Where he went expecting to die, and trying to maintain the standard of who he was until he died there. But things didn't go the way he expected from the beginning. The Capitol loved him on stage. They followed him in the dome. The girl he loved fell in love with him. And he lived.

Except all of it was a lie. And it was a lie that set their country on fire.

All of which is a problem, to be putting it very, very, very mildly.

Character's personality: Peeta for all the oddness of his family, even before the The Hunger Games was an affable person liked by all of his school friends (even if the girl of his dreams never noticed him). He's very smart, incredibly likable, able to make things workout the way he wants them, at least in how people view him, and he's generally an incredibly nice, and *good* person. Which are the things he doesn't want the Games to strip from him, even if he's lining up to be a sacrifice.

Having to live with living is one of the hardest things Peeta has ever faced, maybe even more than the Games. Because of how anticlimactic that is. That he's alive but he was lied to and used to get himself there. That Katniss who he thought he fell in love with wants nothing to do with him. That he no longer has his family, while he watches Katniss and hers live together next door to him.

Peeta is very confused and very adrift when we next see him -- and yet, every single time a camera turns on, he's golden, with a perfect smile, a winning laugh, and the romantic heart, all of which gut him as he uses them. The only real weapons he has to use to keep himself alive and away from the Capitol. Which isn't happening, since he and Katniss became symbols for revolution.

Character's skills/abilities/powers: Peeta is an ordinary, average 16 year old boy. But he is on the side of being incredibly strong, given he's gotten to tote around 1-2 100 lb bags of flour all the time for his family from god knows what age. Which was before he had to start training with an occasional assortment of weapons in training for The Hunger Games. He really does not like weapons, but it doesn't mean he doesn't know how to use them -- or that he'll choose to.

Any special equipment your character is bringing along? This includes weaponry, magic items, etc.: No clue yet, as i'm trying to slide this in fast. But nothing really more than maybe like a paintbrush or something from baking and a pair of clothes. He doesn't like most of the surplus of things he owns now anyway.

Are you bringing your character to [community profile] ten_fwd from another game? If you are, which game?: No.

If you answered yes above, briefly summarize how they were changed by and what challenges they faced in the climate of their previous game(s): N/A

Why do you want to play this character in Ten Forward, and what do you plan to do with them? It will give Peeta more of a backing to understanding the world is not all black and white, horror and death, that Panem presents for everyone at his level. Or everyone in general who is not The Capitol itself. He'll get to know more people outside of his situation and he'll even get to know the other Victor's inside of it much better than he does now, too.
