Cashmere is a minor antagonist from the second book of The Hunger Games trilogy, Catching Fire and a supporting antagonist in the film. She is a Career tribute and a former victor from District 1, alongside with her twin-brother Gloss.

She was portrayed by Stephanie Leigh Schlund.


As a teenager, Cashmere volunteers for the unspecified Hunger Games. Being a Career Tribute who has obviously been training for her entire life, she manages to win them. Since then, she lives in the Victors' Village and works as a mentor for next tributes, obviously including Marvel and Glimmer. Her twin-brother Gloss also participates in the Hunger Games and wins them.

When the 75th Hunger Games comes and its tributes are chosen from victors of the previous Games, Gloss and Cashmere are reaped again.

During training, Cashmere usually spends time throwing knives with her brother Gloss. They once invite Katniss to practice making hammocks with them, with Katniss describing them as polite and cool. Cashmere also tells her she looked ridiculous in her clothes. During the interview, Gloss says that she can't stop crying when she thinks about how the citizens of the Capitol will suffer due the loss of 23 victors. In the arena, Cashmere is the last career to arrive at the cornucopia. When Katniss and the rest of the Rebel Alliance's tributes leave, Cashmere is seen forming an alliance with the other Careers, Brutus, Enobaria and Gloss, as they plan on how they will attack the remaining tributes. She manages to stab Seeder to death in the Cornucopia bloodbath and retrieve several throwing knives in the process. In the directors cut of the bloodbath, Cashmere is also seen throwing a knife at Beetee, but he manages to survive. 


Cashmere's death

Together, the Careers walk across the arena, looking for the remaining tributes. When the Rebels Alliance return back to the Cornucopia to retrieve more weapons on the 2nd day, the Careers attack them immediately. After her brother Gloss is shot in the chest by Katniss with an arrow, Cashmere runs out of the water and prepares to throw a knife at Katniss, but Johanna throws her axe into Cashmere's chest, killing her instantly. She is last seen when her dead body is thrown into the water as the cornucopia spins.

Known victims

  • Seeder - stabbed with a knife (Cornucopia bloodbath)



  • Gloss and Cashmere are likely in their 20s as they won the Games when Katniss was a child. It means they are ones of the youngest tributes in the 75th Hunger Games.
  • Gloss and Cashmere are only known siblings who have won the Hunger Games.
  • While President Coriolanus Snow is the overall main antagonist of the franchise, Cashmere, her brother and the other Careers are the direct main antagonists of Catching Fire.
