Dauntless was a faction formed by those who blamed cowardice for society’s problems. The only answer is to face your fears and find bravery.

Core Belief: “Freedom from fear.”

Traits: Bravery, courage, fighting and physical skills.

Physical Traits: 

Dauntless always dress in black. The women wear skin-tight pants, tights, tight dresses, and black boots and shoes. The men wear black pants and form-fitting shirts. Dauntless like to tattoo and pierce their bodies. Girls might wear dark eyeliner and makeup. They might also dye their hair unusual colors.

Manifesto: 

“We believe that cowardice is to blame for the world’s injustices. We believe that peace is hard-won, that sometimes it is necessary to fight for peace.

But more than that:

  • We believe that justice is more important than peace.
  • We believe in freedom from fear, in denying fear the power to influence our decisions.
  • We believe in ordinary acts of bravery, in the courage that drives one person to stand up for another.
  • We believe in acknowledging fear and the extent to which it rules us.
  • We believe in facing that fear no matter what the cost to our comfort, our happiness, or even our sanity.
  • We believe in shouting for those who can only whisper, in defending those who cannot defend themselves.
  • We believe, not just in bold words but in bold deeds to match them.
  • We believe that pain and death are better than cowardice and inaction because we believe in action.
  • We do not believe in living comfortable lives.
  • We do not believe that silence is useful.
  • We do not believe in good manners.
  • We do not believe in empty heads, empty mouths, or empty hands.
  • We do not believe that learning to master violence encourages unnecessary violence.
  • We do not believe that we should be allowed to stand idly by.
  • We do not believe that any other virtue is more important than bravery.”
