TESSA GRAY (The Infernal Devices)
A strong girl with an open mind and a burning love for books. Even when dropped into unreal situations, always able to keep it classy. She’s intelligent, and extremely kind. Her lack of knowledge as to what her true speicies is canbe a constant distraction. And her kindness may backfire sometimes. Not wanting to hurt people she loves will, in turn, cause her pain.

Theresa Gray is a sixteen-year-old American warlock in Victorian-Era England. She has spent the first sixteen years of her life being overprotected by her Aunt Harriet after the death of her parents, Elizabeth and Richard, in a carriage accident. She lives almost all her life in books, dreaming of having the kind of adventures the heroines she reads about do.
Tessa has smooth, brown hair and steely grayish-blue eyes. She thinks herself average and her hair unruly. She is also considerably taller than other girls and boys her age. Magnus, in City of Fallen Angels, says she has a serious face. When reminiscing about past times (bonus content of Clockwork Prince) Magnus thinks of Tessa as pretty (along with Sophie), not traditionally beautiful but kindly attractive. Jem and Will both think she is pretty.

Why We Like Her
Tessa Grey, my darling, I remember you saying once that you were an ordinary looking girl. You are so wrong; you are amazingly beautiful on the inside and the outside. You care about everyone with all your heart and because of that you put all of your friends and others before yourself, no matter the gender, age or status. You have the bravery of all the greatest heroines you love; you are not afraid of anything and have faced many challenges. Things that would have broken 99.9% of other people but you stood firm. You kept going. Your wit and love of literature just shows that you are a young lady ahead of your time. They way you reply to Will’s wit with your own comebacks and that your not afraid to read books that others in your time would consider nothing but inappropriate. I have the deepest regard for you and I would give anything to meet you in real life, however unfortunately that cannot be. You are my favorite character of any books or movies ever created and there will always be a place for you in my heart. Keep strong Tessa, I know you stills have tough times ahead of you but keep resolute. I know we can all rely on you. – theherondalegirl
She’s a girl we die-hard book lovers can relate to. Books keep her going and the characters in those books motivate her. She perfectly straddles the line between respectable woman and tenacious fighter. – Ice-ridden
Edward is a Dauntless initiate who was born Erudite. He is a very strong fighter and is ranked first place, edging out Peter. It is presumed that Peter is responsible for cutting out Edward’s eye with a butter knife. This injury results in Edward becoming Factionless, because he could not finish with initiation. His girlfriend was Myra who was another Erudite born Dauntless transfer. After joining the Factionless he demonstrates violent tendencies, which it is hinted at, may have always been there.

Edward was an Erudite born, but later chose Dauntless at the Choosing Ceremony the same year as Tris. During initiation he is shown to be a fast and effective fighter, and it is later said that he has been studying hand to hand combat since he was ten. He is the only initiate to triumph in every match and was ranked first after stage one.

Why We Like Him
Forget the sparkles. This Edward isn’t playing around in a meadow. Attacked brutally with a butter knife by Peter, Edward leaves the Dauntless faction and becomes Factionless. He doesn’t know what to expect and enters the outskirts of Chicago, well, blind. Edward soon aligns himself with the Factionless and helps to bring down the Erudite. For someone who was once an outcast, he turns the tables around. Edward has to rebuild himself from the ground up, something that has never been down before in Tris’ world. I loved how Edward’s character got to grow and his return in Insurgent was excellently executed. – 4dauntless
