Identification Chip.jpg

Identification chips, or ID chips, are basic components that contain a person's identity. Along with providing a person's identification, ID chips are also able to track a person's whereabouts if inputted into a database. ID chips are embedded in a person's left wrist and can be scanned to confirm one's identity.

When Cinder was visiting Peony in the quarantines, she witnesses an android slit the wrist of a dead Letumosis patient, then remove the ID chip and store it in a compartment with dozens of other bloodied chips.

Cinder then sees Peony die and an android comes to take her dead sister's chip. Cinder knocks out the android with a syringe and slits Peony's wrist to retrieve her ID chip.

When Cinder & Thorne escape from prison, Adri & Pearl visit Kai to tell him that Peony's ID chip could be used to track down the two fugitives.

ID chips are relatively inexpensive to manufacture and can be used to store univs and other forms of money.
