Caesar Flickerman

Character Analysis

Caesar is the TV announcer and interviewer who meets with all the tributes before the Hunger Games. He's the unwitting enabler of dramatic moments like Katniss' wedding dress reveal and Peeta's announcement that they're married and she's pregnant. Caesar is powerless – ironic given his namesake – and yet he's freer than most of the people he interviews. He has more of a voice than they do, and he doesn't have to fear for his life like they do.
