Caprice Alythia Carpenter was born to Dauntless-born father Beckett Charles Carpenter and Candor transferred to Dauntless mother Alethea Dina Carpenter on the twenty sixth of January. She was the second born in her Dauntless family, with her sister, Cassidy Cameron, being older and brother Brennan Carlisle being younger. Her sister was always the smart one. Reckless and dangerous, sure, as they were all taught to fight at a young age, but Cassidy always was very reasonable. She always had thought that things were always going to be bad as long as people still fought. She had learned to let go of her family from an early age, so Caprice's relationship with Cassidy was always so very... Strained. It came as no surprise to Caprice that Cass transferred out of Dauntless and into Erudite when Caprice was 13.
Her brother on the other hand, was a fun kid. He was always one to mess around. He was also bit of a bully, though, and that was something Caprice never liked about him. For that reason, her relationship with him was strained as well, considering every time he bullied a kid, she'd step in, and he'd be mad at her for a few days. Considering this happened every week or so, they rarely ever got along.
Her parents tended to take pride in one of the other two more than her. Her father likes Brennan more, while her mother loved Caprice more... Before she had transferred out of Dauntless, of course.
Caprice never felt like a Dauntless, though. She was more like her sister than she felt comfortable with. She didn't like violence. She hated fighting. Unless it was used to protect Caprice or her family, she never did it at all. In fact, her Aptitude test was 25% Dauntless, 75% Amity. That's what she went with, and she transferred out of Dauntless.
Her parents and her had never spoken again after that. In fact, she and none of her family had talked ever again. They all took the motto "Faction Before Blood" very serious, as did Caprice.
She's now seventeen.
Caprice is very honest. That comes from her mother's Candorian side. She was taught by her mother, who taught her, that Honesty is the best policy, even if it hurts somebody. Although Caprice hates hurting people, she will be honest to them. She only lies when it keeps her out of trouble- which she does quite a lot, since her Dauntlessness sometimes comes out when needed. Her Dauntlessness includes being very brave, and very capable. She's smart, too, which she takes after her sister, the Eruditian.
Overall, she is very peaceful, usually taking moments to herself to listen to the wind, or the water as she taking a shower, and she hates violence. She's very insecure about herself, considering she wasn't raised in Amity, she's not even sure she should be there. This causes her to be pretty defending of herself, even if somebody doesn't mean to insult her, or hurt her in any way. She does not trust easily.
