6. Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, Book 2) - Suzanne Collins
Peeta Mellark.

Still not getting any headway with miss stubborn.

You'd think a life threatening experience where you risk your ass and lose a leg for a girl would have warmed Katniss up to him.

7. I, Claudius - Robert Graves
Claudius (narrator).

Poor guy has been treated like crap by his own family just because he was born with some physical deformities. And on top of that his few true friends were either assassinated or exiled by shady relatives, not to mention the humiliating experiences he had to go through by aforementioned relatives' hands (in most times in order to save his life).

8. Notes from Underground - Fyodor Dostoyevsky
The narrator (White Nights).

You feel sorry for the lonely guy who was so desperate he latches on to the first girl he sees.

9. Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, Book 3) - Suzanne Collins

The disturbed girl who Finnick loves.

10. Things Fall Apart (Penguin Modern Classics) - Chinua Achebe

The poor captive child taken as recompense from another village so as to avoid a war from erupting.

Now you might ask:

"What about the main character Okonkwo?"

And I reply:

"What about him?!"

What? You think I would feel some pity for the main protagonist?

I released a hearty bellow of happiness when he hanged himself.
Noin's rating:

A group of fictional characters that stir feelings of compassion and pity in the reader.

WARNING: Some spoilers.
