divergentcalebsm By now we’ve seen almost everyone in the next YA franchise hopeful “Divergent”, but today we finally have our first glimpse of the last of the major characters to be unveiled. USA Today has the first still of Ansel Elgort as Caleb Prior, brother to Shailene Woodley’s heroine Tris.

Tris and Caleb live in a post-apocalyptic Chicago where society is regimented and sectioned off into five different factions, each emphasizing one character trait. They are both born into Abnegation, the selfless faction, but at the Choosing Ceremony, where each 16 year old citizen chooses to stay with their faction or choose a new one, they both surprise each other and their parents by choosing to leave: she goes to Dauntless, home of the brave, while he heads for Euridite, those who favor knowledge above all else. The rest of the cast is made up mostly of Tris’ Dauntless cohorts, including Theo James as love interest Four, Miles Teller as nemesis Peter and Zoe Kravitz as best friend Christina.
