Will is a character from the Divergent fandom.

Will was one of Tris' good friends during their Dauntless initiation. He transferred from Erudite to Dauntless. When the results for the second stage of initiation were announced after Peter threatens Tris in their dormitory- Will was left to find out if what Peter had said about Tris manipulating the test was true. He became protective of her. He also constantly restrained Tris when she got violent with those who talked about the Erudite's article about the Abnegation. At first, Will and Christina constantly got into simple arguments. However, eventually his closeness to Christina lead them into a relationship. During the mind-control simulation of the Dauntless and Erudite against the Abnegation, Will went after Tris and with much resistance, she shot him out of self-defense, though she deeply regreted her actions but knew she had no other choice.



ChristinaWill is the relationship between Will and Christina.

Canon Relationships


Christina and Will became friends early in the book. In the late part of stage 2 of initiations Will kissed Chistina as they were walking near the train tracks, later followed by Chistina kissing Will. Will and Christina start dating just before the 3rd stage of initiation when Will punches Christina. Their relationship continues through the end of initiations where they celebrate becoming Dauntless members together. At the end of the book Tris is worried if she will ever see Christina again and is terrified to think what will happen when Christina finds Will's lifeless body in the streets.

When Christina found out that Tris had been the one who shot Will, she was very upset and did not speak to her for days. Eventually, she forgave Tris when she realized that there really was no other option and that he was under the simulation.


  • In the film adaptations of Divergent, Will is played by Ben Lloyd-Hughes.
