Beatrice "Tris" Prior is the main protagonist and narrator of the Divergent series. Upon their troubled conflict in the third book (Allegiant), they still cared for.
Peter, Drew, and Al attack Tris, threatening sexual assault and nearly throwing her to her death, but Four intervenes. Tris and Four grow closer, and he lets her into his own fear landscape; she discovers he has only four fears, hence his nickname. She also learns he is Marcus' son Tobias, and the claims of abuse were true.
Four uncovers Erudite's plans to use Dauntless to stage an attack on Abnegation. Tris overcomes her fear landscape, and the Dauntless initiates are injected with a "tracking" serum. Tris shares her feelings for Tobias, and is ranked first at the initiation ceremony. A junction on the Chicago "L" , one of modern Chicago's train systems. Dauntless demonstrate their fearlessness by jumping on and off moving trains throughout the novel. The serum transforms the Dauntless into hypnotized soldiers to attack Abnegation.
Tris and Tobias' Divergent abilities allow them to escape to the Abnegation compound. Tris is shot and they are captured.
Erudite leader Jeanine, mastermind of the attack, injects Tobias with an experimental serum that overrides his Divergence. Under Jeanine's control, Tobias oversees the attack from the Dauntless control room. Tris is almost drowned in a tank, but is rescued by her mother, who reveals she is also Divergent before she is killed helping Tris escape. Tris is forced to kill Will, who attacks her under the influence of the simulation.
She finds her and Tobias' fathers, explaining the truth behind the attack. They fight their way to Dauntless headquarters, where Tris' father sacrifices himself. Tris is attacked by the mind-controlled Tobias; unable to kill him, Tris surrenders, causing Tobias to break free of the serum's control.
They shut down the Erudite simulation and free the Dauntless. They rejoin the initiates, and board a train to the Amity sector to find the Abnegation survivors.
Style[ edit ] Many reviewers stated that the novel's writing style offers a distinctive, terse prose that creates a fast-paced reading experience. Susan Dominus, writing in The New York Times described the style as "brisk pacing, lavish flights of imagination and writing that occasionally startles with fine detail".
Critic Antero Garcia describes the thematic similarity between these dystopian novels as an interest in the "grasp of power between youth and adult authority" and compared the novel to Unwind by Neal Shusterman.
Divergent adds a new layer of complexity with its creation of an illusion of democracy for participants in its fractioned society, with the factions controlled by outside forces. If one cannot contribute to society, they are cast aside to become "factionless" and are deprived of access to an identity and resources. In a journal article, Andrea Burgos-Mascarell compares the factionless to illegal immigrants, as they do not have access to certain public services either.
Both are marginalised from society because they are unable to contribute to it. Kirkus Reviews called the social structure a "preposterous premise". In her book chapter exploring how literacy in different knowledge types affects the series, Alice Curry describes the factions, and character indoctrination in those factions, as deliberately creating knowledge gaps between initiates to different factions. The Publishers Weekly review emphasized this stylistic choice, calling it "edgy" and describing the initiation rituals that Tris endures "as spellbinding as they are violent [requiring] sadistic tests of strength and courage".
Here, somehow, the novel's flights from reality distance the reader from the emotional impact that might come in a more affecting realistic or even fantasy novel. It exposes them repeatedly to what they're afraid of, and gradually you become less afraid of it, or have a healthy level of fear, and I thought of the Dauntless then, because they're conditioning perfectly normal people to get over perfectly rational fears.
In the postscript "Acknowledgements", Roth emphasizes her Christian faith saying "Thank you, God, for your Son and for blessing me beyond comprehension. He told them that she fitted three factions instead of two or one, and also aided in the simulations that she took. Tris then named herself "the Last Prior" as he had betrayed their whole family.
Despite her hatred towards Caleb upon his betrayal discovery, she risked her life for him in the end of Allegiant. She went to the Weapons Lab instead of him to trigger the release of the Death Serum, which led to her death by the hands of David.
She decided to sacrifice herself, because she didn't see her brother as the one who betrayed her, but as the older brother who took care of her when they were little, who loved her. Before going to the Weapons Lab, she told Caleb that she loved him, and Caleb told her the same.
Tris first met Tori when taking her apitude test. Tori warned Tris to keep her Divergence a secret, and tells her about the danger she'll be facing if she fails to do so. While Tris was in Dauntless, she often came to Tori for help because of her faith and trust in Tori.
In Insurgent, however, Tris nearly kills Tori because of the information she needed from Jeanine, who Tori was about to kill. Tori, believing that Tris had betrayed her, called her a traitor and had her arrested. The two later joined at the Allegiant, where they were assigned with the mission to see what was outside the fence. On the way, they were attacked by the factionless, which, unfortunately, resulted in Tori's death.
This upset Tris, who decided that although she was angry about their fight in the Erudite headquarters, Tori was still the one who protected her. Christina and Tris became best friends on the way out of the Choosing Ceremony after Tris chose Dauntless. On the day of the simulation, Christina was affected by the serum, where as Tris wasn't. Tris shot Will, causing a short feud between the two in Insurgent. Christina stayed away from Tris until Cara, Will's sister, persuaded her to keep on being Tris's friend.
They made up and went to the Bureau, where shortly after, Christina mourned Tris's and Uriah's deaths. Tris describes Christina as a true friend, who was always there for her. Tris has a very troubled relationship with her boyfriend's mother.
Evelyn has always seemed to not like Tris, finding her unpleasant and rude. Tris finds Evelyn very selfish and dishonest, thinking that Evelyn was lying about getting kicked out of Abnegation. This leads to conflict between Tris and Tobias. Tris became friends with Will on the day they transferred factions. She shot Will in Divergent , as he was under a simulation and about to shoot her. Tris took a long time to get over her guilt of killing him.
Al became friends with Tris the day they transferred.
He was part of the group that attempted to kidnap Tris in Divergent , along with Peter and Drew, despite his obvious crush on her. He tried to apologize, but Tris told him that she would kill him if he came close to her again and called him a coward. This resulted in his suicide. Tris felt awful about it. Uriah is one of Tris' Dauntless-born friends. He was the one who invited her to go zip-lining with the other Dauntless-born. Uriah was very close to Tris, maybe even the closest Dauntless-born friend Tris had.
Tris was upset when he was killed in Allegiant , and his death even caused her to temporarily break up with Four. Lynn is one of Tris' Dauntless-born friends.
They are often seen bickering with each other, but also care about and respect one another. Tris also saved Lynn's brother, Hector, from dying, knowing that if he did die, Lynn would be broken. Tris comforted her while she died in Insurgent , and mourned her death afterwards. Marlene is one of Tris' Dauntless-born friends. When Marlene was killed under simulation in Insurgent , Tris had a chance to save her, but couldn't because she saved Lynn's brother instead. Tris regretted this, and mourned her death.
At the start, Tris's relationship with her best friend's sister wasn't very good. Cara insulted Tris the moment she saw her because she used to be Abnegation. However, Cara immediately broke away from Erudite after their attack on Abnegation and helped Tris.
Her actions shocked Tris greatly, especially since she had killed Will. Tris didn't always have a stable relationship with Cara, but truly respected her. Eric was one of the Dauntless leaders.
Tris felt that he was evil and cruel. When she beat up Molly, Eric praised her, and she immediately felt that if Eric liked what she had done, then it must have been wrong. She shot him in the foot when he tried to kill Tobias Insurgent.
Andrew was her father. Tris mourned his death in Divergent , along with her brother, Caleb. Natalie was her mother. Tris and Caleb mourned her death in Divergent. Tris loved her mother a lot, it was very mutual. Tris saw her when she was dying in Allegiant.
