Buttercup Keen is District 2 Female Tribute in the The 101st Hunger Games.
Buttercup was born in an average family in District 2, she had a rather normal life and her mother became an Escort. After the first Alliance Games, Buttercup noticed that she had the same last name as another Tribute from District 6, Clarabella. She did a little research and discovered she was related to Clarabella, turns out they were cousins. Buttercup was feisty and stubborn; however she was far nicer than most Career Tributes. She hated being bossed around and she also was surprisingly squeamish around blood; the sight of it makes her faith. She was also terrified of bugs.
Buttercup knew there would be blood during the Games, so her Bloodbath strategy was to stay alive; gather useful things and above all avoid seeing blood! Her Games strategy was to join up with the other Careers and try to make it till the end. Allow other Careers to kill off other people, stay back and shoot with darts or throw knives to help them out. Avoid other Tributes and confrontation with enemy tributes. Avoid seeing blood!
