The two characters known as the morphlings are victors from District 6. They are also the tributes from their district for the 3rd Quarter Quell. The morphlings are called such because they are morphling addicts. Like Haymitch Abernathy after they became victors with a life of luxury, they turned to chemical substances. Only unlike Haymitch they turned to morphling instead of alcohol.

The morphlings are very fascinated with colours and painting. As such they particularly like Peeta Mellark, and during training for the Quarter Quell the three of them paint Katniss Everdeen in a field of flowers.

The female morphling is just one of the many people who save Peeta's life. When the monkeys are attacking Katniss, Peeta and Finnick Odair, the morphling comes out of nowhere and jumps in front of Peeta, taking the attack that the monkey had intended for Peeta. As she was dying, Peeta talked to her about paints and colours, which she had adored, and she lay on the ground swirling her finger in her own blood.

As it turns out she too had known about the planned escape from the Clock Arena to at least some degree, and knew that Peeta had to be protected.

The Morphlings won their games around the same time as Seeder, from District 11. They presumably won the 30th or 31st Hunger Games, due to being aged around 60 years old.
