Nearly all the characters in Catching Fire are brave. Katniss and Peeta are ready to die for each other and are always acting rashly to defend their values. Mags and Wiress give up their lives to protect the others. Johanna calls the Capitol out, and she and Finnick risk their lives to save Peeta and Katniss. Cinna puts his life on the line to give Katniss a costume that will further incite the rebellion. Not all of the good-guy characters are great fighters or strategists. Not all of them are even on the same side. But each is capable of acts of great bravery, and each turns his or her strengths into courageous actions both in the arena and outside it.
