Despite the intent of her limited role as a propagandist, she is drawn into combat by her obsession to kill Snow. As the war progresses, she comes to realize the rebel leader, President Alma Coin, is no less ruthless and power-driven than Snow.
Katniss learns that Coin considers her expendable, staged a supposed Capitol atrocity which kills Prim, and after the war, calls for a final Hunger Games using the children of the Capitol war criminals.
When finally given the chance to execute Snow, Katniss kills Coin instead. She is deemed not mentally responsible and returns to District 12, suffering trauma and suicidal depression.
She marries him, but it is fifteen years until she is ready to have children. Peeta Mellark is the male tribute from District 12 in both the 74th and 75th Hunger Games.

The idea that they are cousins is used by the people of the Seam to cover for his close relationship with Katniss — to prevent the suggestion that the "starcrossed lovers" storyline with Peeta is staged, as it is presumed her closeness with someone as good looking as Gale would draw suspicion.
Though the suggestion that they are cousins effectively satisfies the press from the Capitol, it makes both Katniss and Gale very uncomfortable on several occasions.The following is a list of characters in The Hunger Games trilogy, a series of young adult science fiction novels by Suzanne Collins that were later adapted into a series of four feature films.
