How does the idea faction over blood come in the story Divergent?
The basic idea of 'faction before blood' was incorporated within the story when Tris is troubled and confused whether to be on the Dauntless' side or the her original faction, Abnegation's side. Someone then tells Tori that 'faction over blood' was the general rule. Of course, it's Tris, so she doesn't follow the rule and believes in something else. But this idea of 'faction over blood' creeps her out.
