Peeta Mellark is the other person involved in the love triangle that composes of him, Gale Hawthorne and Katniss Everdeen. He is from District 12 and is the baker's son. Peeta's mother is known to be a rude and unlady-like woman because not only does she hit him when he 'accidentally' burned loaves of bread but she also looked down on Katniss Everdeen. What happened to the burned loaves of bread? Peeta gave them to a starving Katniss Everdeen who, at the time, had no idea of how to feed her family since her mother was going through a 'phase'.
 74th Annual Hunger Games
Peeta was one of the chosen tributes of District 12, Katniss Everdeen being the other. During an interview with Caesar Flickerman, Peeta confesses his love for Katniss in answer to why winning the Games wouldn't do much good in his love life, this takes Katniss by surprise and causes her to push Peeta into a vase and have blood run down his hands. Haymitch Abernathy comes to the rescue and tells her it's all an act, it was not until later that Katniss realizes that Peeta was sincere in his confession that he has liked her ever since he heard her sing.
During the training for the 74th Annual Hunger Games, Peeta mentions that he is not good with weapons, something Katniss Everdeen wonders about considering he has the strong arms of a baker. Being the baker that he is though, Peeta finds that he is skilled in camouflage because of his many years experience with icing, this helps him survive in the Games for a few days after he betrayed the Careers by injuring Cato when he spotted Katniss Everdeen during the trackerjacker incident. He was later found by Katniss Everdeen in a cave who helps him clean himself and tries to cure his wounds.
