In Divergent, everyone belongs to one of five factions: Dauntless, Abnegation, Candor, Amity, or Erudite. Children are raised in the faction of their parents, but they choose their own faction when they turn 16. They take an aptitude test that tells them which faction they are most suited for, but are not required to choose this faction.

Divergent is set far into the future, in the ruins of Chicago.

EruditeThe Erudite value knowledge. Most of their days are spent in the library, trying to become more learned. Their hunger for knowledge makes them the most easily corruptable faction

AmityThe Amity are peace loving and dislike violence. Many people of Amity are farmers because they are also dedicated to the enviornment

AbnegationAbnegation is a faction that stresses selflessness. They avoid anything that may lead to being selfish, and always serve others. All government officials are Abnegation, because they are the most morally incoruptable

CandorThe people of Candor value honesty, and as such they never lie. They wear black and white, because that is how they pereive truth to be

"I have a theory that selflessness and bravery aren't all that different."-Four


TrisTris was born into Abnegation. when she takes the aptitude test, she shows aptitude in Dauntless, Abnegation, and Erudite. This means that she is divergent. The woman giving Tris the test tells her to keep this secret, because divergents are free thinking and this makes them a threat to the government.

DauntlessThe people of dauntless stress bravery and are always trying to prove their bravery. They dress in black and get piercings and tatoos. Dauntless acts as the protectors of the other four factions, and their ultimate goal is to overcome all fear

FourFour is a Dauntless leader. Like Tris he was born Abnegation, but chose to be Dauntless to get away from his father. He is called Four because he only has four fears. Four is in charge of training the Dauntless initates to become full members of Dauntless. During training, he developes romantic feelings for Tris. At the end of the book, it is revealed that Four is also divergent.

"A brave man aknowledges the strength of others." -Four

Divergent is now a major motion picture

~Summary~Tris Prior is part of Abnegation, but feels that she is not selfless enough to stay in this faction. Also she learns that she is divergent, meaning she is not able to be controlled by the government. Tris joins Dauntless and begins the long and grueling training process to become a full member of Dauntless. Dauntless stresses bravery and fearlessness, so Tris spends hours conditioning her body and mind to meet these standards. Tris developes romantic feelings for her intructor, Four, who she learns is also divergent. Tris eventually uncovers a plot by Erudite to use the Dauntless as soldiers to stage a coup. Erudite controls Dauntless through mind control, but Tris and Four are divergent and are able to resist being controlled and thwart Erudite's plan.

"Politeness is deception in pretty packaging."-Tris
