Best Divergent Characters

The Top Ten
1 Tobias Eaton

Tobias is perhaps the most complex and well-written character in the whole series. With his mysterious past, Tobias is a great character.

To be honest. I've never read the books. And I've never watched the movies. And also I don't know what Divergent is... but the name Tobias sounds cool. RIP Tobias. If he died. I don't know this series

Four is the sweetest character in the series. that scene where he explains his tattoos is amazing. Four is the most layered and interesting character in the series.

He is my favorite character. I cry every time he shows his tattoos and says he doesn't want to fit into just one category. He is brave kind smart tough emotional and human.

2 Tris Prior

Tris is amazing. She is brave and intelligent. I'll admit Tobias is the best written character but Tris is the most inspirational!

She is amazing. She's so brave and a very inspirational. You can tell why she is divergent. She's all the factions she got: Smart, Brave, and Selfless. RIP her :(

No one is better than Tris. She is divergent for a reason and she doesn't let it get in the way of her relationship with Tobias (Four).

Tris is definitely not as well acted as Katniss. Katniss shows much more deep emotion. but I still agree she is ok but I like Max the Doggo

3 Uriah Pedrad

WHY isn't he number one! He is positive he is a loyal friend he got 2nd in the rankings! He is just awesome! I can't see why Veronica Roth killed him

Uriah is my favorite by far. He is so amazing and funny, too. I am still sad that he die. Stupid Tobias. I blame him. Him and Nita.

Who doesn't love Uriah! I cried even more when he died than when Tris did!

The best character but of course he dies...

4 Christina

Christina is my fave character. She's basically almost a young Tori personality wise. Christina is from my two favorite factions, Dauntless and Candor!

Christina is a really great friend and she never gives up. When Tris becomes more important in the divergent universe, Christina is still determined to be the best she can be and not hide in Tris's shadow and use her as a trophy or to get attention. I also love how confident she is.

Christina is the best character because she is brave and sticks up for herself. Just because Tris becomes really important she doesn't hide in her shadow, she is still determined. She is also really funny.

She's a damn character better than Tris. She's strong, pretty and realistic. Tris is just downright rude, lazy, obnoxious and annoying, excuse my French. She knows what she wants, and is wise for her own age.

5 Peter Hayes

Peter is the most underrated character in the series. He started out as a jerk, and seemed to be the central antagonist. He was cowardly and furled by jealousy. But at the end of the day, just like Tris and Four, he's a loyal Dauntless and a brave man. He does show remorse and helps people. I don't think he's nice, like Four and Tris, but he is a complex character who no one really understands. Deep down he's a good person

He may seem like a jerk but when it really comes down to it he is on the right side.

He is awesome. Even though he hung tris over a chasm. I still think he's AWESOME!

The redeeming factor to the divergent books. he should have been the hero, he was so much more interesting than tris or four

6 Will

He is too underrated

Will Is my city

7 Natalie Prior

What a great character! Natalie Prior is the definition of brave and selfless. She sacrificed herself for her daughter and was such a beautiful, pure character. R.I.P. Mrs Prior.

8 Lynn

I love Lynn! She is my favorite female character! She is cold at first but is very LOYAL and KIND. She was great to Tris and loved Marlene. Her love strong was tragic. Her ending was I timed and unnecessary! RIP LYNN

Lynn is amazing. She's just such a complex girl, but she's got a heart beneath it all and that's why I love her.

I relate to her on so many levels. I wish she had a bigger role in the films!

I love my fellow lesbians! She is totally awesome!

9 Tori Wu

Tori is like, the cool mom in the series. She's an adult, a daredevil, and not afraid to take risks. She is badass!

She is queen! I love her hawk and I love the meaning behind it even more!

10 Myra
The Contenders
11 Edward

How on earth is Edward above Caleb and Peter he was in the first half of the book

12 Cara

Cara is the perfect example of what a true Erudite is! She's very smart, but not vain. She never really judged anyone's beliefs and she's funny for an having an Erudite mind. She's the most forgiving character in the entire book.

Cara is totally the most underrated character in the trilogy. She was SO SMART, she betrayed her faction to help Tris and helped save her life, AND was a leader of the Allegiant. Completely underrated, best character in a series of boring characters.

Best character in divergent . My personal fave.

13 Marlene

17th!17th! Marlene is number one. She loves muffins, is funny, and a good friend and light hearted! She had the most brutal death by far! Even worse in the movies because no one wanted to catch her! She is so underrated and deserved more! Vote for Marlene please!

I think Marlene should be higher. She ranked 4th in initiation, is a great friend, is funny, is brave, and you can never go against muffins.

She was amazing and I loved how she was so confident and childish. One of my favourite characters for sure. Plus she likes muffins!

14 David
15 Andrew Prior

He's one of my favorites

16 Caleb Prior

To be honest I still like Caleb, he's not my favourite though. He may be a traitor now but who knows what's going to happen in Allegiant

My favourite male character. My favourite female is Susan. She's so underrated

I don't know why!
Probably by

He betrayed his own sister!

17 Jeanine Matthews

Jeanine is an incredible villain. She isn't pure evil just for the sake of it, and isn't dumb like most of the villains in books/movies. She's extremely smart, ambitious, cunning and determined and would do ANYTHING to achieve her DAMN goals. Seriously, you gotta admit that Roth did a fantastic job at writing her character. Also, Kate Winslet is THE perfect actress to play the cold-hearted Jeanine Matthews.

18 Zeke Pedrad

Nice guy . But left out in movie

Why doesn't anyone like him?

19 Eric

I respect him

20 Al

He was actually really cute. But of course Veronica Roth had to kill him off.

He just can't be forgiven.

I get you completely bud

Sad that he died

21 Johanna
22 Shauna

She's great - okay, her views may be a little controversial, but her relationship with Zeke and her friendship with Tobias is beautiful.

23 Matthew
24 Caleb
25 Drew
