CHARACTERS HISTORY (taken from Wikipedia):

Effie Trinket:
A Capitol-born chaperone who was assigned to oversee District 12's tributes in the Hunger Games, specifically Katniss and Peeta in the 74th and 75th games. She must carry out such tasks as drawing the tributes' names at the reaping and escorting them to the Capitol. At first, she detests her association with District 12 and hopes to be promoted to a better, richer district after she pays her dues for a few years. Later, Effie becomes attached to her District 12 charges, though it's unclear if this is because of their particular charms, or because of their fame and success, which reflect well upon herself, too. She does not have any moral qualms about the Hunger Games or the Capitol. Effie has bright pink hair that appears to be a wig. She seems totally oblivious to the misfortunes of District 12. She is very strict about manners and is always punctual. She does not appear to be very intelligent, and gets basic facts wrong, such as confusing how diamonds and pearls are made. In Mockingjay, it is said that she was imprisoned after Katniss's escape, but, unlike many others Katniss knew in the Capitol, she is not executed. She meets up again with Katniss before Snow's execution.

Haymitch Abernathy:
Haymitch Abernathy is a "paunchy, middle-aged man" who was the victor of the 50th Hunger Games, which occurred 24 years before the beginning of the first book. When he was 16, Haymitch was Reaped for the second Quarter Quell, where four tributes from each district were forced into the arena. He became an ally to a girl named Maysilee Donner, who was the original owner of the mockingjay pin, but later was forced to watch her die. Katniss finds this to be akin to what happened between her and Rue. During the Games, he found his way past a wall of shrubbery to the edge of the arena, where a force field caused anything that hit it to be flung back. When the Games came down to himself (who had been eviscerated) and a female tribute, he positioned himself by the edge so that when the girl threw her weapon at him, the force field sent it back at her, killing her and leaving Haymitch the victor. Within two weeks of his victory, Haymitch's mother, younger brother, and girlfriend were killed by President Snow, as punishment for Haymitch using the force field to his advantage. Since President Snow had left no one close to Haymitch to use to control him, Haymitch instead is "held up as an example" of what happens to those who defy the Capitol.
After winning his games, he became an alcoholic and has spent almost all of the next 24 years intoxicated to the point of embarrassment. Being the only surviving Hunger Games champion from District 12 (one of only two in the history of the games), Haymitch was forced to mentor all of its tributes, which consumed him with guilt by being forced to participate in the games that he hated. He dealt with these feelings by being drunk and openly flouting the dignity of the games. He treats Peeta and Katniss with contempt, and is sarcastic, expending no effort to help them. However, when Katniss confronts him, he is stirred from his stupor and emerges as the pair's greatest advocate and shows himself to be highly canny as he guides his protégés in a cleverly designed, highly unorthodox strategy aimed at ensuring the survival of both tributes.
Although she disliked him greatly at first due to his drinking and his harshness, Katniss later realizes that he is tired of seeing children placed under his care for the Games only to die, and also sees that he cares a lot about Peeta and Katniss. After being in the arena, she realizes that drinking was his form of escape from the nightmares caused by his experiences as a tribute. In the book Catching Fire, it is said that the liquor supply in District 12 has run out, and Haymitch has gone insane, shaking violently and having visions that only he can see (i.e. having delirium tremens). It is left up to Katniss and Peeta to coax him back to health (and get him more liquor). After this incident, Katniss begins to develop a true affection and respect for him. Katniss also realizes that she and Haymitch both think alike, since she was well able to understand what he was trying to communicate to her through the gifts that he sent her in the arena. When Katniss finds out that Haymitch didn't save Peeta at the 75th Hunger Games arena, she claws him and feels that he betrayed her. In Mockingjay, Haymitch is forced to go through detox in District 13 since they do not permit the consumption of alcohol. Despite this, he continues to serve as a mentor to Katniss and Peeta.
