Rickamaru was born into the poor section of the poorest district, district 12. He once had many siblings who helped support their family through the Tessarae most have died in the games or the mines. Rickamaru is the last surviving child and was too young to take the Tessarae to support his mother. Due to the malnutrition and depression, she has been very sick. She eventually passed away and was buried in the back yard. He couldn't even afford a coffin. Now alone, Rickamaru had to learn to support himself. One day, after failing to steal some food and with fresh bruises to show for it, he decided to go for a stroll in the woods. While there, he found some berries to eat and saw many animals running around. He decided that he could survive off the food in the forest if he learned how. After many failed attempts, he learned to make a bow and some crappy arrows. With time, his skill with the weapon got better. By selling some of the meat, he also bought himself a knife and learned to use it just as well as the bow. (thrown or otherwise) He also dabbled in some traps but couldn't do much more then a snare trap for a rabbit. It had been 3 years since she died but he had learned well how to survive. It was then that his name was called for the games. He was in shock but knew that there was no fighting it. None who would take his place and none who would mourn him if he fell. Accepting his grim fate, he resolved that despite all this, he would not give up and fight to live as he had all these years.
