Gloss is a male victor from District 1. He and his sister Cashmere, who won subsequent years, are the tributes for the 3rd Quarter Quell from their district. Gloss is part of the Career pack traditionally made up by the tributes from District 1, District 2 and District 4, as well as anyone else they deem worthy. During the Quarter Quell however, the Career pack is made up of Gloss and Cashmere, Enobaria and Brutus. Mags and Finnick Odair, the tributes from District 4, do not ally with the Careers because they are in on the alleged escape plan and choose to join Katniss Everdeen instead. The District 1 tributes are said to have not known about the plan to escape the clock arena a number of days in, which is likely why they continued with the Career plan.

Gloss and his sister train with Katniss Everdeen before the Quarter Quell, making hammocks. While Gloss and Cashmere are polite enough, Katniss cannot help but think of Marvel and Glimmer, District 1's tributes from the 74th Hunger Games, both of whom she killed. As a result Katniss doesn't connect well with them, and an alliance seems unlikely.

Gloss follows immediately after Cashmere during the interviews and comments on the kindness he and his siter recieved from the Capitol. This only adds to the sadness felt by the audience.

Gloss dies in the Clock Arena when Katniss shoots him in the temple. He had just slit Wiress' throat and Katniss whipped around to kill him immediately with her bow.
