|First Appearance||The Hunger Games|
|Portray By||Kimiko Gelman|
Venia is one of the three members of Katniss Everdeen's prep team during her participation in both of her Games and also for the shooting of her Mockingjay videos. She worked alongside Flavius, Octavia and Cinna to assure that Katniss looked her very best.
 In Catching Fire
When preparing Katniss Everdeen for the 3rd Quarter Quell, Venia was the only one who could continue working on her. After an incident earlier on where the prep team burst into tears about Katniss going to the Quell to certain death, Cinna talked to them and it was clear that no crying would be tolerated. Octavia was the first to leave, and Flavius also couldn't hold his tears in. Venia was left to do the work of three people - hair, nails, makeup - and she did it quite swiftly and efficiently. She doesn't look Katniss in the eyes once until Cinna comes to tell her she can go, then she looks directly at her and tells her how privileged the entire prep team feels for working with Katniss (see full quote below).
