She is arrogant, strong, and can use many weapons, especially throwing knives, and she is known to never miss her target. She makes one of the firsts kills of the 74th Hunger Games by knifing the boy from District 9 in the back while he is attempting to throw an axe at Katniss. Clove's next target is Katniss but her knife is blocked by Katniss's newly acquired orange backpack when she raises it over her upper back. She has a special hatred of Katniss because of her high training score, number 11. Katniss attempts to kill her with the tracker jacker nest. Like Cato, and the rest of the careers she enjoys killing, as evidenced when she pins Katniss to the ground at the Feast and plans to give her the most torturous death possible, by cutting her up, bit by bit. Before she can continue to cut Katniss, Thresh catches her and accuses her of Rue's death. He then dents her skull with a rock, which kills her.
In the film she is portrayed by Isabelle Fuhrman, and is shown to possess similar skills. Moments before she is able to kill Katniss, she meets her demise at the hands of Thresh, who this time around, takes her by the neck and repeatedly slams her against the Cornucopia, crushing her windpipe.
