Welcome to the District 6 stop on The Panem Companion Victory Tour! We’re celebrating the upcoming release of V. Arrow and Smart Pop Books‘ super detailed tour de force of all things Hunger Games, The Panem Companion!
Each fansite on the Victory Tour represents one district of Panem and we’re here to give you an exclusive excerpt from what V. Arrow has identified as the Pharmaceutical district! Is anyone really surprised that we’re all pills and cannibalism?
District 6 – Excerpt from The Panem Companion by V. Arrow
“What did District 6 do if not manufacture medicine? Did its skilled workers migrate to District 12? Or did districts become responsible for producing more of their goods locally, returning to a system more akin to the one North America knew before the world wars? How did all of the various district cultures intermingle in the years after the war?”
Panem Names glossary excerpt:
Titus, District 6 Tribute who “went crazy” in the arena and resorted to cannibalism in a previous Hunger Games
“The name Titus is most likely taken from Emperor Titus. It was during Titus’ short reign that the Coliseum—the stadium for gladiatorial games—was completed; the inaugural games lasted for a hundred days and were said to be extremely elaborate, including gladiatorial combat, fights between wild animals (including elephants and cranes), mock naval battles for which the theater was flooded, horse races, and chariot races. Titus died shortly after the inaugural games’ end.”
