It's the only thing I know how to do, to bring pride to my district, not that it matters. Cato is the main antagonist from the first book of the trilogy, The Hunger Games and in the film with the same name.
He is a voluntary tribute from District 2, alongside with his district partner Clove. He was portrayed by Alexander Ludwig. Contents [ show ] Description Cato is the strongest and biggest of the Careers, can use many weapons and has savage pleasure in killing.
Like all Career tributesCato has complete confidence in his abilities and expects that he will be the victor. Katniss believes he is not completely sane after seeing his reaction to the destruction of the Careers' food supply, and knowing that he already wants to fight with other tributes even before the Games starts.
In addition, his only motivation is pride for his own district. Despite his brutality, it is likely that he shows remorse inside, though is unable to reach it. His speech at the end of the film is a drastic and unexpected twist on his character: Before the Games, he saw it as an honor, and as a chance to prove himself, but when he stepped into the Arena he faced harsh reality.
As a result, he believed he was just a conduit for the Capitol's brutal entertainment. Personality Cato is extremely arrogant, savage, cold, cruel, sadistic, destructive, ruthless, and violent to an extreme. He has been trained his entire life in the Career Academy to become a ruthless and powerful warrior and survivor.
He is highly intelligent, which is uncommon among most Careers who rely on strength and brutality.

This implies that he was in a relationship with Clove before they entered the Arena.
However, during the brutal climax of the film where he fights with the film's protagonists, he reveals an unexpected twist of character. He explains how he realizes that he was never going to survive the Hunger Games, in spite of his incredible strength and training - he was little more than an overconfident gladiator in the Arena, fighting and killing for the entertainment of the Capitol.
He even acknowledges his mistakes, taking into account that this epiphany had only come to him whilst fighting Katniss when it was just the three of them surviving. Nevertheless, he shows determination to finish one final kill to bring pride to his District - even if it means he wouldn't survive the consequences.
Cato is extremely brave and utterly persistent, as even after he was removed from the fight atop the Cornucopia, he continued to fight against the wolves with every breath that he could muster. Despite this, Cato is still capable of pleading, as he begs for Katniss to shoot him whilst he is being attacked by the wolf mutts.
