Weapon: He is experienced with an axe, as he works in the woods.
Strengths: Douglas is skilled with an axe from years of work in the forests near District Seven. He has a very strong physical build, and will use this to his advantage. He is also stealthy.
Weaknesses: Douglas's endurance is not quite up to par with his pure strength, and he can be a tad bit indecisive. As explained later, he is also afraid of bears.
Personality: Douglas is a serious guy who doesn't talk very much. Instead being overly social, he often likes to slip into the woods to think in quiet.
Strategy: Prefers to work alone unless approached by another tribute.
History: Douglas led a fairly normal life in Seven. He is a quiet guy, and performed fairly average in school. His family does not have a lot of money, so he works in the woods to help out. However, he still cannot forget the day when he was out in the woods at age 11, in his first month on the job. Him and his friend were attacked by a bear, and only after his friend had been mortally wounded was he able to deter the bear with fire. While he understands the necessity of working in the forest, this incident is always in the back of his mind. He feels lucky to still be alive.
