Synopsis for The Hunger Games: Ballad of Songbirds & Serpents
In The Hunger Games, who is the character Tigris Snow?
If you’ve already seen the movie tetralogy—or if you’ve read the book trilogy—you’ll already know Tigris Snow.
Tigris was born as part of the Snow family, one of the wealthiest and most important in the entire Capitol. During the events of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part Two, we get to meet Tigris Snow at her store in the capital. Here, she helps the rebels disguise themselves and subsequently escape the area.
Tigris’s appearance has been surgically modified to look like a tiger. Her entire face is tattooed with gold and black stripes, a flattened nose, mustache implants, and stretched skin. In the events of Mockingjay, Katniss describes her as “The result of a grotesque semi-feline mask that watches us askance.”
