“Elora, for millennia the Spirits have protected the Ignari by shrouding the great evils of this world in myth and legend. They gave them protectors hidden from their sight: Vanguards, Spirit Seekers, Magicae, and vampires who embrace the light. We Divergents hold back the darkness, no matter the cost.
“Like the Spirits, I fought to protect you from truths certain to overwhelm you in your youth. You were only a child. I meant to spare you what I could. Any mother would act the same. But now, already sixteen, the truth bursts upon you as you burst upon the world. You are ready. You are Light. You are strong. You are a Vanguard and this is your legacy. You will prevail.”
