Spotlight on Candor

Coming to you from Reading Lark over the next week we have a series of spotlights focusing on Insurgent by Veronica Roth, the second book in the Divergent trilogy. In case you haven’t already noticed, we have a great Team Erudite giveaway to enter here, and you can catch up with Lark Jen’s review of Insurgent here

Today we are featuring Candor, the Truth tellers! 

 Faction: Candor 

 Characteristics of faction: 
 Value the truth & never lie because they believe lies are evil. 
Can be taken as quite rude because they say what they think and believe politeness is deceitful. 
Many Candor faction members have a role in law. 
Wear black and white clothes.   

 “The Candor sing the praises of the truth, but they never tell you how much it costs.” Insurgent pg 155. 

People/Characters who could be Candor: 
 Cordelia Chase, Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Angel 

Miss Piggy 

King Oberon, The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa 

 Who else do you think could be Candor? The team found it quite hard to decide on Candor candidates, so suggestions would be great! 

 Why Candor is the best: 
 Candor provide many of the government officials, and let’s face it in today’s world there are far too many politicians who seem only too happy to stretch the truth... Who likes a liar, really? 

 Don’t forget Insurgent is released on May 1st!
