They dress very modest, often commit what we refer to as random acts of kindness, and spend much time volunteering. Members of this faction tend to be very giving and even though they’re often referred to as “Stiffs” by other factions, Roth herself said Abnegation is her favorite faction, admitting they “generally live beautiful, good lives.” The main character Beatrice Prior is originally from this faction.
Mostly Bs: Amity - values peace.
The Amity are the peacekeeper faction. They live farther outside the city and produce all the food other factions eat. Amity love relaxing and playing instruments out in the apple orchards.
