Kolton Amberly is a man from District 12 who works in the mines. After the 74th Hunger Games, when Peeta Mellark came out during the interviews, Kolton decided to do the same. He was alienated from his father, but his sister supports him. After Peeta returned home, Kolton approached him and thanked him for helping him find his courage. He also agreed to teach people how to use pickaxes and explosive in training if Peeta sets up a training facility.
