Characters- Ender - Is the main character and is given that because he is chosen to save the world from the buggers. Peter - He is Enders evil and cruel evil brother. Valentine - She is Enders older sister and is the only person that truly loves him. Colonel Graff - He is the person that uses Ender to fight the buggers. Summary- Ender Wiggin is the third born in a family of children that are extremely intelligent, is chosen by international military forces to save the world from havoc and death.
He is reminded of his mother praying over his body as a child. That in turn evoked an image of revenge against his personal tormentor and brother, Peter (Card 87). Ender is reminded of, not of the message of Christian peace, but of righteous war and death. This vengeful mental picture is a consequence of Peter's identity in Ender and casts aspersions on his intent. In an essay entitled “Ender and Hitler: Sympathy for the Superman,” Elaine Radford, using these vengeful images and other clues, claims that Orson Scott Card wrote Ender as metaphor to Hitler.
Andrew Wiggin, also known as Ender is the main character in the book Ender’s Game. He lives in a world where mostly everything is controlled by the government. At first, I feel sympathy for him because he is a “Third” (A third child) which wasn’t accepted by other people. Further on in the story Ender realizes that there are some benefits of being a third. His brother Peter was smart and very aggressive.
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)”.
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
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.
This begins to weaken him both individually and emotionally, and it eventually takes a toll on him. Within Ender, Card shows that isolation and loneliness can destroy an individual through his collapse and his change in personality. After the grueling training and numerous battles that the government puts Ender through, along with all of the isolation and loneliness that he endures, he collapses in the processes both during and after the burdens were put onto him. The first major event that showed Ender enduring some troubles was when he woke up in the middle of the night and found that “there was blood” on his bed, and he had been “gnawing on his own fist” (285) in the middle of the night, in his sleep. This revealed to the reader that the strong and powerful Ender might be beginning to crack and show a
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
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
