Gale is the eldest son of the Hawthorne family, left to take care of his three younger siblings - Rory, Vick and Posy - and his mother, Hazelle, now a widow after his father died in a horrific mining accident (the same accident that also killed Katniss' father) before Posy was born.
His best friend and confidant is a girl called Katniss 'Catnip' Everdeen, two grades younger than him. They used to go hunting almost every day, making routine trips to The Hob and selling illegal game to those who would bid the highest price. It kept food on the table, earned them an underground rep, and most of all: it allowed Gale to spend more time with Katniss.
He was born a rebel, infused with hatred and paranoia of the Capitol and everything they stood for. It kept him alive, and gave him reasons for all of the tragedies (the poverty, starvation, mining accidents, etc.) that occurred in District 12 on a daily basis.
He has a very deft pair of hands that can turn just about anything into a snare, better to trap his prey with when he hunts. He also has a natural talent to think like the enemy, which makes him an expert hunter and someone you don't want to cross. He - like nearly everyone from the Seam - also has difficulties trusting people.
He is noticeably handsome (a lot of the girls - and guys - at school can attest to this), tall and well-built, with dark straight hair, grey eyes, and olive skin.
Disclaimer: Gale Hawthorne is from The Hunger Games trilogy, and is the property of Suzanne Collins. He appears here solely for the purpose of role-playing in milliways_bar, from which no profit whatsoever is being made.
He comes in from between The Hunger Games and Catching Fire, before the 74th Hunger Games Tributes (Katniss and Peeta) leave for their Victory Tour.
