Even though Valentine tries to protect Ender from Peter, he is only protected from his brother when Colonel Graff of the International Fleet comes to take Ender away to Battle School. Ender leaves behind Valentine, who loves him, in order to help save the world from the buggers and
Colonel Graff is a prominent manipulator of Ender. He continually isolates Ender and makes sure that he knows he is different. This changes Ender’s demeanor and his outlook on the situation. Ender is persistently worried about whether he is good enough, even Major Anderson sees this. The dilemma on whether this is all morally right has come up numerous times.
His brother Peter was smart and very aggressive. His sister Valentine was also smart but too nice and gentle. Ender being the third has both of their characteristics being the perfect kid that Graff (officer like person) and the people above him needed. Although his problem being a Third might not be that bad, I feel sympathy for him because he is chosen by Graff and the International Fleet
The characters in Ender’s Game, most notably Ender, Valentine and Peter, represent different aspects of humans. Ender represents compassion. Ender has a very violent side to himself that the adults in the book bring like to bring out and abuse. Ender recognizes that they do that and hates that side of himself. He tries his best to stay away from hurting people and while talking to his sister Valentine he says, “In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him (238)”.
The character that Ender emulates the most is Christ. The multiple religious references make the parallels obvious. In the first edition of Ender’s Game, Graff describes himself and Anderson as “the ones who are driving in the nails" (First Edition 106). When Ender’s friend Alai explains that his hello to Ender, “salaam,” is Islamic for “peace be unto him”, an image immediately leaps into Ender’s mind. He is reminded of his mother praying over his body as a child.
Also, the idea of self worth is given, in the book this idea is more exemplified as Ender tries to remind himself that he is not like Peter in any way. The idea of protection comes about as Ender learns to protect what is his, this is seen in the book and the movie as Ender fights to have something of his, that is love and affection. Overall, the main lesson learned from Ender is that people can change. Ender is called by the dying queen bugger to protect the cocoon which hold the fetus bugger and charges Ender to serve as its guardian even though he destroyed almost all of the bugger
Countless times, Ender does something horrible, but is forgiven for it. Card works hard to generate copious amounts of pity and empathy for Ender throughout the beginning of the book, and then proceeds to reveal what Ender has actually been doing throughout the story. That’s okay though, because Ender is actually innocent and the victim. The entire plot consists of Ender is unknowingly committing murder, abuse, and
Who would have thought that a boy both violent and caring could save and eliminate a species? In the book Enders Game, Ender and he was no ordinary child, and his intellect was beyond any normal child. His life started to change as his monitor, a device that tracked what he did, was removed and he was forced to face with a long-time bully of his. As Ender gets pushed around, he hits a hard blow and gives no mercy to the boy if he ever wanted it to end. Surprisingly, the people in commands recognize his unfound talents and decided to train him in a school every boy would want to attend.
He is trained to fight and control spaceships, to use them against an invading alien force. However, the pressure he is under, and also the stored hate and anger he has leads him to the wrong path, and creating a dark side on him, which would lead him to destroy an entire planet. He was a simple kid, who had a sister named Valentine and a brother named Peter. His brother and sister also went to the same training program he was on, but they didn´t met requirements, but he did. He was about to finish the studies when he was bullied by some kids who los fights with him on videogames.
Ender realizes a bunch of things that are wrong but can easily be fixed and that would lead to many advantages that set him apart. For example he realizes the well-rehearsed formations were a mistake because it meant they were predictable, as well as there was no room for adjustment to what the enemy did against formations. After doing more research Ender realized that he could fix these disadvantages and make them into advantages. These advantages would result in his teams core competence or in other words these new advantages would be how his team found a competitive advantage against the other teams. Ender could have better reached his goal of determining his core competence by using the information he did know and building on it to make it a strength of his and for it to become a
