Katniss (5) vs. Leo (25)

Katniss Everdeen 
Book Series, Fandom:  The Hunger Games, Hunger Games World

Katniss has strong and independent survivalist instincts due to her difficult past and is good at thinking outside the box. She is not socially adept and has a hard time making friends due to the emotional strain on her life which has made her hard and cold. She is more concerned about feeding her family than being social, making her awkward around people. Though Katniss can be rather blunt and cold she has a very vulnerable side which she only shows around her family, and she has a natural maternal instinct as showed when she comforted Prim and helped Rue. She is not very good at acting for the camera and comes across best when she is herself. She is usually very logical except for times when her emotions get in the way.

Katniss is very strong, stubborn and determined. Often, she will react first and ask questions later. She will do anything to survive. Even when she allied with Rue, she said she hoped that she didn’t have to be the one to kill her. Yet when it came to Peeta, she tried her best to figure a way for them both to survive. 

Even though she can sometimes be a bit self-centered and self-reliant, she does have noble traits, protecting those she loves. For example, caring for Prim, looking out for Rue, and ending Cato’s life mercifully even though he caused her so much pain or when she shields Gale to keep him from being whipped, even when it means a lash for herself. Katniss has an instinct to protect those who are weak such as Rue, Wiress, and her prep team. – Hunger Games wikia

Leo Valdez
Book Series, Fandom: The Heroes of Olympus, Percy Jackson Universe

Leo is good-natured, easygoing, upbeat, energetic, funny, and loves to tell jokes, even if they aren’t funny. Leo is genuinely intelligent and honest, and cares about his friends and family. He sometimes doesn’t think before reacting and he enjoys pulling pranks on people, especially those who he doesn’t like. Despite his happy-go-lucky attitude, Leo is emotionally scarred from the death of his mother and is crushed by guilt as he indirectly caused her death. Leo has been shown to have a serious side, which happens when he is angered by someone or when the situation calls for it. He is also seen building small bits of machinery and equipment and is very skilled and serious about his work.

He is also known to frequently fall in love with any beautiful girl as long as she is completely out of his league, such as in the case of Khione and Thalia.  It is possible that this characteristic comes from his father, Hephaestus.

Near the end of The Lost Hero, he starts to let go of the pain of his mother’s death and learns that his pyrokinesis is a gift and tool, not a curse. He also decides to stop running from his past and he starts opening up to his friends more. As of The House of Hades, After Leo Visiting Calypso, Leo Has gotten more mature,and heartbroken, but still tells Jokes.

While Leo’s fatal flaw has not been revealed, however he shows feelings of inferiority. – Camp Half Blood wikia

hbarTris (2) vs. Magnus (30)

Beatrice “Tris” Prior
Book Series, Fandom: Divergent, Divergent Trilogy

Beatrice “Tris” Prior is a strong-willed sixteen-year-old girl who hates showing weakness. Though Tris was born in the faction Abnegation, she eventually transferred to Dauntless and must face the fact that she is Divergent. Since an early age, Tris was shown to have acted with a blend of curiosity and selfishness, traits that obviously does not make sense as an Abnegation. Her Divergence allows her brain to act with traits from three of the five factions, authentically proven through her Aptitude Tests when it showed her being equally apt for Abnegation, Dauntless and Erudite. – Divergent wikia

Magnus Bane
Book Series, Fandom: The Mortal Instruments, Shadowhunter Chronicles

Magnus can come off as aloof, but he’s always ready with a witty or sardonic remark for any occasion. He enjoys being the center of attention, and as such, is a showman in terms of behavior, wardrobe, magical displays, and general living arrangements. Like many people who crave attention, a lot of this is in reaction to the rejection he faced as a child at the hand of his parents. When they found out the truth about his heritage, they believed he was a monster and tried to kill him. Though he acts as if this no longer bothers him, having given himself completely over to his Downworlder side and now wearing it as a mark of pride, he obviously still suffers from fear of real rejection.  He is very deeply offended by Shadowhunter treatment of Downworlders, having been one of the warlocks actually present to sign the Accords, and having done quite a bit to rankle Shadowhunter authority into ceasing to abuse Downworlders who did not engage in monstrous or illicit activities.  

Despite appearances, Magnus has the capacity to be immensely loyal to people who earn his respect or love. He might not always be willing to admit it, but he does care about what happens to them, and this manifests in his own unique way of lending aid when necessary.  – My Magnificence

Thalia (54) vs. Nico (42)

Thalia Grace
Book Series, Fandom: Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Percy Jackson World

Thalia is a brave, strong and caring girl, though at times she can be stubborn, prideful and assertive much like her father Zeus. She likes to be in charge and give out orders to people and becomes very angry if they are disobeyed. She also has a bit of a temper, as shown during the Capture the Flag match against the Hunters when Percy left his post causing them to lose the game, so she shocked him with electricity. In some ways she’s very similar to Artemis, as she enjoys being around her fellow Hunters and is a great fighter. She is also very loyal to those she trusts and respects, as she is willing to risk her life to protect them (for example, when she sacrificed herself on top of Half-Blood Hill). Unlike her fellow Hunters, Thalia apparently does not mind being around boys, as shown in The Lost Hero.

Chiron once said that Percy and Thalia are very much alike. The only difference is that Thalia is more sure of herself, while Percy has less self-confidence.

Thalia’s fatal flaw is that she has a weak resistance when she is offered power (mirroring Zeus’s power struggle with his brothers, as she also conflicted with Percy over capture the flag, and when offered by Luke to kill the Ophiotaurus). She is also afraid of heights (acrophobia), a quality Percy finds strange and funny, as her father is the Lord of the Sky. In the short story, The Sword of Hades, in The Demigod Files, she also shows to be very determined. Thalia has trouble abandoning a difficult task that she has started but is not able to complete.  – Camp Half Blood wikia

Nico di Angelo
Book Series, Fandom: The Heroes of Olympus, Percy Jackson World

Nico can be extremely dangerous as he is a son of the Big Three. He is very unpredictable, and due to his sister’s death can be somewhat mentally unstable as demonstrated in The Battle of the Labyrinth. He has a short temper, just like Percy and Thalia. When Jason causes him to lose his temper in The House of Hades, Nico’s fury was so intense, that it even scared Jason, who felt that a furious Nico was “more than he could handle.” The only time Nico is ever shown to be terrified, is in The House of Hades, when he was forced to face Cupid, implying that Nico’s greatest fear is exposing his homosexuality. Even though Nico seems to dislike being touched, he is shown to be very affectionate towards Hazel, having kissed her twice.

Nico di Angelo’s fatal flaw is holding grudges, as Bianca’s ghost tells him. In his case, it can lead to not wanting help or not asking to be saved in deadly situations because he doesn’t like someone. Examples are his not wanting to be helped by Percy, even when Geryon was going to sell him to the Titans and not wanting to go back in the Labyrinth with them. Bianca shares this with him, as she also had the same fatal flaw in life, although this didn’t lead to her death. Bianca also says that holding grudges is the fatal flaw of Hades’ demigod children. In the fifth book, Nico tells his father, Hades, that he is holding a grudge that could end up killing the Olympians and the campers. Ever since The Last Olympian, Nico hasn’t demonstrated this flaw any more, implying that he has learned from his previous experiences, and tends to avoid holding grudges. – Camp Half Blood wikia

hbarUriah (12) vs. June  (24)

Book Series, Fandom: Divergent, Divergent Trilogy

Uriah is a Dauntless born initiate who befriends Tris Prior and introduces her to Dauntless life.  He was tall and handsome, with dark tanned skin and dark eyes. His smile looked white against his bronze skin. He had brown hair. He had a snake tattooed behind his ear. – Divergent wikia

June Iparis
Book Series, Fandom: Legend, Legend Trilogy

June is always analyzing and constantly observes. She is very logical, and is very selfless and sympathetic towards others.  But she tends to hold long grudges against people who do wrong by her, sometimes to a very saddening fault.  She’s tough, but she’s not immune to emotional pain.  She finds strength in her intelligence and ability to keep record of things in her mind, relying on keeping track of certain things, like time.  

She has a temper and a recklessness to her that’s admirable, but sometimes can be dangerous not only to herself, but to others.  Although when she realizes her errors, she is quick to feel great remorse for it, so much so that she is willing to sacrifice her own happiness for sake of peace and happiness for the one that she loves, even if she cannot be with him. – Legend wikia
