She knows firsthand what horrible things they are capable of and how horrifying the results are. Personality:

Growing up in District 10 on a modest farm, she was always around animals and nature. When Adelaide was four she faintly remembers watching her oldest brother compete in the Hunger Games, sadly he was killed the seventh night when his ally turned on him. Since then she secretly hated the games for taking away her brother. Always wishing that one year The Capitol could quit and no one else would have to lose a loved one.
Living on the farm was good for her, at times feeling as if The Capitol couldn’t reach them on their tiny plot of land. While working among the animals Adelaide uses a whip to help guide the herds. Never hurting them she simply grazed the cow’s side to make sure they went the right way. Even when not working she would still practice with whip, not wanting to get rusty and hurt an animal. Most of the time though she can be found simply sitting on the fence singing, enjoying the fresh air that District 10 had to offer when the factories weren’t in full effect.
Once Adelaide reached the age of sixteen she was fearful of becoming a tribute once the Hunger Games rolled around. The first year she was lucky and though she felt sorrow for those chosen, she cried into her pillow that night in relief at not being the one to leave. Still the threat loomed over her head and the following year, now the age of 17 she stood there with several other girls in the straight lines and sorted by age.
Dressed in the cleanest and best dress she owned, hair gently pulled back into a bun. Adelaide could feel her heart skip a beat as her name was announced over the sound system, the District Representative simply smiling as if they won a large reward. Eyes wide with disbelief she was escorted up to the stage, even now she barely remembers the day, everything happening in a blur. The thought of having to fight against a fellow member of the District and countless others dulled her senses. Mainly in shock she didn't talk or speak to anyone except her family when they came to see her off. Adelaide can't even recall the trip to The Capitol, everything just blurring together in the end.
