Divergent Book and Movie Fansite
Ok so when i finished INSURGENT, the main question going through my head was: WHO S EDITH PRIOR????? So, my thoughts are that shes Tris' grandmother or aunt or possibly even her sister. what do you guys think? comment your thoughts please!
It's revealed in 'Allegiant' that Edith Prior is Tris and Caleb's several times great aunt. Their line descends from her brother. Recall she'd assumed the name herself so was incapable of passing it on if she'd ever married.
This could explain her Abnegation first name. She was a founder of the factions let alone born on the outside, she could have chosen to insert herself into Abnegation while her brother had chosen to insert himself into Erudite.
