Last week, “Divergent” fans got treated to a first-glimpse at the “First Jumper” scene from Neil Burger’s adaptation of Veronica Roth’s dystopian best-seller, and it left many of us in a sort of frenzy to determine which actor was which among the Dauntless initiate crowd shown in the still.
Not to worry, though.
While there are some extras in the image who look similar to actors portraying other characters, a little time (and the release of a higher quality version) has given us the ability to decipher once and for all who is who in the pic.

Hit the list to peep all the need-to-knows about the people included in the second “Divergent” still image.
“Divergent,” which is currently being filmed in Chicago, Illinois, will theaters on Mar. 21, 2014. Stay tuned (and subscribe) for more “Divergent” filming and book news.

Shailene Woodley as Tris
This one’s kind of a gimme, but standing out (literally) in the picture is Shailene Woodley as Tris in her Abnegation wear. As you can see, she’s about to become the First Jumper of the Dauntless initiates and prove she’s not Beatrice Prior the Stiff. She’s Tris, brave and selfish.
NOT Theo James and Four
A lot of people suspected that the bulky man pictured left of Tris was Theo James as Four, but not so.
Four is positioned at the bottom of the jumper pile overseeing the nets to help initiate jumpers out of it.
This man is an as-yet-unidentified extra.
Jai Courtney as Eric
The man with the gnarly tattoo running up his neck is Jai Courtney as the Eric, the tough-as-nails trainer of the Dauntless initiates.
Thanks to that set visit I mentioned previously, I’ve seen this get-up in person, and just wait. It’s sooooo rad.
Miles Teller as Peter
Next up is Miles Teller as Peter, the Dauntless initiate who transferred from Candor.
He’s clearly doing his best “Not Impressed” face at Tris’ little “First Jumper” move here.
Ben Lamb as Edward
Thanks to DivergentFans.com for catching onto this one.
Here’s a glimpse at Ben Lamb as Edward, the poor sap who takes a butter knife to the eye after the first round of rankings were released.
Notice the tiny sliver of his blue shirt visible here. Edward was an Erudite-based transfer initiate into the Dauntless gang.
NOT Zoe Kravitz as Christina
Though they share some obvious features, this woman is not Zoe Kravitz as Christina.
Christina is a Candor-born transfer initiate, so she would be wearing the garb of her faction in this image, and this woman is clearly Dauntless-born.
Amy Newbold as Molly
Last but not least, here’s the lovely Amy Newbold as the uber-nasty Molly in the “Divergent” still as well.
Molly Atwood, like Peter and Drew, transferred from Candor and has it out for Tris throughout the story … as that massive stank face clearly intimates.
