"Jonah (8) saved my life this morning from that traitor Flash (1). I hate the feeling of owing something to someone, but there's nothing I can really do now."
―Copper Overdeen during the 225th Hunger Games
Jonah has a very sensitive and caring personality. He is also very charming and charismatic. He likes cracking jokes and laughing.
""And the last tribute is," Darla says, taking her hand out of the bowl, "Jonah Thompson!" A boy with black hair jogs to the stage, looking pretty confident."
―Isabel Davids on Jonah Thompson during the district 8 reaping for the 225th Hunger Games
Jonah has somewhat messy black hair and green eyes. He is very fit, and he has pale white skin. Jonah is 5'11".
During training, he auditioned to be in the Careers and successfully got in by throwing three knives and axes which all hit the head, chest and groin of the dummy. He was sorted to Arena 2. He killed Nick Lovizio during the bloodbath by throwing a knife to his head. He killed Flash Skylar when he tried to betray the Careers by attempting to kill Copper Overdeen by throwing an axe into his head. He got to the final arena and survived the second bloodbath. He allied with the remaining Arena 2 tributes then allied with Sian Malley and Emily Lunamoon after the Arena 1 tributes assaulted the house the Arena 2 tributes camped in. He helped Sian burn Katrin Calix and Kate McAllister. He allied with Hex Servirior, Lira Roberts, and Sian to kill Emily, Fabio Batone and Maysilee Cresent.
