Katniss has embodied the role of a leader for a long time . "Her grit, roughness and decency, serve as a rebuke to the Capitol... Katniss personalizes -- humanizes -- the fight.

In a dialogue between Telemachus and Menelaus, the King of Sparta, exclaims, “…no one of the Achaeans labored as much as Odysseus labored and achieved, and for him the end was grief for him…”(Odyssey). Menelaus’s examination of Odysseus not only displays his unyielding discipline and courage, but it also presents one of the fundamental dilemmas of the Greek belief system—that suffering is oftentimes certain and unavoidable.
