One of the few people that is able to leave the walls is couri 4. But the Commander has something up reddwine sleeve, no matter how hard Rachel and her deemed Protector Logan try he always seems one step ahead.
Like I said, this is a fantasy setting that clearly got shoehorned in to dystopia just for the sake of calling it dystopia.

Both Rachel and Logan are defiance personified.
