Tobias and Tris taken deep into the labs of the compound to undergo genetic testing with Matthew. The two are anomalies because of Tris’s exceptional serum resistance and Tobias’s only manifesting certain Divergent characteristics. They meet a lab technician named Nita, who runs their tests for them. Upon examination of their DNA, Matthew tells them that Tris is indeed Divergent (possessing healed genes), while Tobias is not. Matthew tells him that “your genes are still damaged, but you have a genetic anomaly that allows you to be aware during simulations” (176). This news crushes Tobias, who believed himself Divergent.
