In Divergent, 16-year-old Tris has to take the aptitude test to determine her future faction. Tori, her test administrator, tells her that she is "Divergent", that is, she has the aptitude to fit into multiple factions (Erudite, Abnegation and Dauntless), but is warned never to tell anyone that information, not even her family members. In the Choosing Ceremony, she transfers to Dauntless, and assumes a new moniker "Tris". She befriends fellow initiates Christina and Al, who are from Candor, and Will, an Erudite transfer. In the first initiation period, her performance in physical matches against top-ranked candidates such as Peter places her on the brink of being cut from the faction, but she then participates in a capture the flag event where she plays a major part in her team's victory. She has also stood up for the other initiates.
