For this week’s Sidekick Showcase, I’m going to focus on another Hunger Games character and the character that I’m going to be focusing on is Cinna.
I love Cinna because he’s one of Katniss’ only real friends, he never stops supporting her and it’s clear that he cares a lot about her, which I love because you get to see Katniss’ more vulnerable side around him, which is nice because Katniss is usually so prickly. He acts as a mentor to her, being incredibly supportive towards her in both the 74th and 75th Hunger Games and I love how much he believes in her. I also feel like he truly understands her, he creates the whole “girl on fire” image for her, to show her feisty personality and he knows her so well that he doesn’t reveal his true loyalties so as not to sway her decision to be the Mockingjay one way or the other, knowing that she would be indecisive. He’s clearly very intelligent, he knows exactly what to design for Katniss so that the right image of her is put across to Panem. He’s incredibly good at hiding his true loyalties and channels his emotions through his designs, so that no one guesses that he is actually a rebel, because his acts of defiance towards the Capitol are incredibly subtle. He is a quiet, caring, hardworking man who takes deep pride in his work and he is almost like a father figure towards Katniss.
I will be back next week with another Sidekick Showcase Saturday post, but in the meantime, I will have my newest Swoonworthy Sunday post for you all as soon as I possibly can.
