Effie Trinket is the level-headed, but sometimes controlling, escort for District 12. She has a certain fetish for always being on time in all her appointments. Along with Haymitch Abernathy, she is tasked to help Peeta Mellark and Katniss Everdeen in their journey in the Games.
 In The Hunger Games
Effie was shown during the Reaping, she was the one who had to announce the next tributes. Though she seemed to have been bored when she called the name of Primrose Everdeen, it may be noted that she was immediately enthusiastic when Katniss volunteered to take her place instead, happy that something has finally happened in the district.
