|Appearance||Tears of Blood|
Ari Locus was the District Nine male who competed in the 24th Hunger Games. Ari lasted a long while, eventually landing in the final eight. Although Ari was a criminal, he never managed to kill anyone in the Games, and was hesitant even when he attempted to pick up a sword earlier. Ari Locus attempted to kill Aella Dekas, but Moss, on the verge of insanity, strangled Ari Locus without hesitation, killing him in seconds.
Ari is most remembered for his thieving tendencies, and also for the fact that he was a criminal. Ari also held a vow to protect Sapphire, his partner, and felt pained when he learned of her death. Ari Locus carved a message onto the wall of his Capitol Room, asking future tributes to remember who he was before he became a killer. It is unknown if the message remains.
