Beetee and Wiress, or Nuts and Volts as they are lovingly referred to, are both past victors from District 3, and both are reaped to go back into the 75th Annual Hunger Games, otherwise known as the Third Quarter Quell. District 3’s industry is Technology, therefore both Beetee and Wiress are very intelligent – which is their greatest asset.
“Thinking like your prey…that’s where you find their vulnerabilities.” -Beetee
Personality: Beetee is an expert in electronics. He won his first Hunger Games wiring a booby trap that electrocuted his competition. Thus earning him the nickname of ‘Volts‘ by the other victors. He was reaped to go back in to the 75th Annual Hunger Games with Katniss and Peeta. Beetee, who is still a genius with electronics, was kept alive by Johanna Mason. And though he is not particularly strong, he is respected inside and outside of the games for his mind.
Appearance: Beetee is described as having ill-fitting glasses, along with ashen skin and black hair. According to the book, he should be in his 50’s or 60’s. When he is speaking on matters other than technology, Beetee is described as nervous and twitchy.
“Tick, tock, tick, tock.” -Wiress
Personality: Many of the victors see Wiress as a disturbed, crazy woman. So much so she earned the nickname of ‘Nuts‘. Wiress is shy, and seldom finishes a sentence – often needing Beetee to help her communicate. However, Wiress was described by her district partner Beetee as being very perceptive. In the Third Quarter Quell, her intuition helped save her and her allies multiple times. First by showing Katniss the secret of the force shield surrounding the arena, and then the nature of the arena itself.
Appearance: Wiress is in her early 30’s at the time of the Third Quarter Quell. She, like Beetee, is described as having black hair and ashen skin.
