Finch Preston was the female tribute from District 5 in the Seventy-Fourth Annual Hunger Games. When she entered the arena, Finch avoided the other tributes and stole from others to successfully keep herself fed. This plan worked for over a week in the arena. Unfortunately, when stealing from the Careers, she misjudged how long an emotionally drawn Peeta Mellark would take to study the perimeter. As such, she was caught in the act of stealing and he killed her.
