Who Would Win the Hunger Games? (2)

In the Arena, there are only four tributes left. Who will win the Hunger Games? 

Who Would Survive the Hunger Games? is an original meme created by When the Words End, where we take four fictional characters that all have something in common (ex: having powers, being mundane, etc.) and put them into the Games, as the last four standing tributes. Then we hypothesize how they got there and how they would have reacted in the Games. After that, we calculate the odds of them surviving and choose a winner.


The Tributes:
Ron from Harry Potter
Clary from The Mortal Instruments
Genya from Shadow and Bone
Rachel Dare from Percy Jackson and the Olympians

Training Score (Out of 12):
Ron- Seven
Clary- Five
Genya - Six
Rachel Dare - Five
"First they show a photo of the tribute, then flash their score below it. The Career Tributes naturally get in the eight-to-ten range. Most of the other players average a five." - The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

The Arena:
The Cornucopia is in the middle of a sweet-smelling green meadow, and the sky is azure blue, with fluffy, billowing white clouds. The meadow stretches for miles, and far in the distance there are woods on one side, and a snow-capped mountain on the other, which is actually a volcano. Everything in the arena is lethally poisonous, including the food growing in the arena, the water in the stream, the butterfly stings, and even the scent of the flowers when inhaled too directly. The only sources of safe food and water in the arena are the rainwater and the food from the Cornucopia

The Cornucopia:
Ron would probably go for the food and water since he can't use muggle weapons and tools. Clary would probably go straight for the weapons since she has experience using them in her Shadowhunter training. Genya and Rachel have very little experience in fighting. They might each take some food and supplies. 
"Sixty seconds to take in the ring of tributes all equidistant from the Cornucopia, a giant golden horn shaped like a cone with a curved tail, the mouth of which is at least twenty feet high, spilling over with the things that will give us life here in the arena. Food, containers of water, weapons, medicine, garments, fire starters. Strewn around the Cornucopia are other supplies, their value decreasing the farther they are from the horn." -The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

I think that Clary and Rachel would make alliances with each other. They are both friendly and share a common interest of art. 
Ron could possibly make an ally with someone at first but if he and his ally are put under dangerous circumstances, Ron would probably Apparate and leave his ally behind. 
Genya would also ally with someone because she is quite weak by herself.
"Often alliances are formed in the early stages of the Games. The strong band together to hunt down the weak then, when the tension becomes too great, begin to turn on one another." -The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Ron would probably hide in or near the Cornucopia so he could keep an eye on the supplies. If another tribute gets too, close, he could just Apparate. Clary, Rachel, and Genya would constantly migrate around the Arena to avoid other tributes.

Since Ron is awkward, he might not have made a good first impression during the interviews but he is kind of funny so that might help him gain a few sponsors. Genya could probably use her physical appearances to appeal to potential sponsors. Clary can use weapons the best out of the four so she would also get some sponsors. As for Rachel, I highly doubt that anyone could consider her as a potential victor due to her lack of experience in battle.

Ron would probably Apparate to the Feast, grab as much stuff as he can, and then go back to his hiding place. Clary, Rachel, and Genya would all need supplies, mostly food and water, because they are not the type to go rushing to the Cornucopia as soon as they are low on supplies.
"For the most part, the only communication the tributes get from outside the arena is the nightly death toll. But occasionally, there will be trumpets followed by an announcement. Usually, this will be a call to a feast. When food is scarce, the Gamemakers will invite the players to a banquet, somewhere known to all like the Cornucopia, as an inducement to gather and fight." -The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
The Winner:
The Winner of The Hunger Games is…

Ron Weasley!

Despite being useless at fighting without his wand or Hermione, Ron could easily win the Hunger Games by Apparating . His strategy would be to hide in the Cornucopia, amongst the supplies and away from all the dangerous things in the wilderness of the Arena. If another tribute approached the Cornucopia, Ron would just Apparate somewhere else and wait until the other person was gone to go back. However, he may splotch himself a few times in the process of Apparation.
