Jeanine: [video message] Peace. Long ago, before the founders established this great city of ours that word was all but meaningless, an ideal as elusive as a dream. Now, two hundred years later, we are all of us living proof that peace is indeed attainable. The reason for this is of course our faction system: Erudite, Dauntless, Amity, Candor, Abnegation. In dividing people according to personality and aptitude we’ve created a society in which each faction plays a critical role in maintaining the social order. But this harmony we’ve achieved is now under attack from a small but extremely dangerous group of individuals. We call them “Divergents”. They are in essence the worst of what humanity used to be: rebellious, defiant and uncontrollable. Five days ago, a rogue group of divergents posing as Dauntless brutally invaded Abnegation, an obvious attempt to cripple the faction system by attacking its most vulnerable members. These divergents despise our system because they’re incapable of conforming to it. These latest rumors for example that I was somehow behind the attack on Abnegation, nothing more that divergent propaganda. I am devoting myself to bringing these fugitives to justice. I’ve exercised my right as acting council leader to declare martial law until I’m confident that any threat to our security has been eliminated. We are all that’s left of humanity. The vast wall that encloses this city may protect us from our toxic surroundings, but it is up to us to confront any element that can poison us from within. Because when you’re civilizations last hope, peace is not merely an ideal it is an obligation. And it is up to all us to take a stand against its one true enemy: Divergents.
