Candor- The Faction for YOU!
Join our faction on Choosing Day!
Symbols of Candor
This represents Candor because we are open with our peers and do not hide our secrets. Everything is in the open for our peers to confront and explore so we keep each other honest.
We represent balance, weighing the truth against lies and standing for justice and the truth.
Black and White
Our colors are black and white! There are no gray areas because gray areas allow for dissent and lead to disarray.

Former Candor Members who Transferred to Dauntless
"I always knew I couldn't be Candor. I mean, I try to be honest, but some things you just don't want people to know. Plus, I like to be in control of my own mind." -Christina
Molly- She left because she felt Dauntless better reflected her personality. "We have to jump off too, then... It's what we signed up for, Peter." -Molly
Peter- He left because he lies with ease.
"I never knew a Candor who was such a liar." -Beatrice
"When we were kids, he would pick fights with people from other factions and then, when an adult came to break it up, he'd cry and make up some story about how the other kid started it." -Christina
Al- He should have never left Candor!!
"Dad always wanted me to come here. I mean, they said they [his parents] wanted me to stay in Candor, but that's only because that's what they're supposed to say. They've always admired the Dauntless, both of them." -Al
Drew- He is a follower. He followed his leader, Peter, to Dauntless.
"Those three have been inseparable since they crawled out of the womb, practically." - Christina
