View Full Version : Discussion: Valentine Wiggin (Demosthenes).

Ender's older sister, the middle child. The only person Ender truly loved and cared for. Ender often thought of her at Battle School, and it was only after her forced letter from the I.F. that he started to feel distanced from even her. Once again, use periods to break it up if you want, such as her early days defending Ender from Peter, her time as Demosthenes, and after the League War. If you want, please create threads for the discussion of Ender's commanders and teacher (Graff, Anderson, Mazer Rackham), and/or for his friends/enemies from the Battle School (Alai, Bean, Dink Meeker, Petra Arkanian, Bernard, Bonzo Madrid), and/or other important characters, such as Stilson. No character is too minor for discussion; if you want to, just start a thread for a broad category of characters, such as "Discussion: Ender's friends from Battle School."

As it said in the book, Val is torn between Ender, whom she loves, and Peter whom she loathes, but also whom she helped for a time with his ambitions. She feels guilty that she helped Peter, since she deeply despises him. She is also very mild and peace-loving, which completely contradicts her Demosthenes persona. As much as she dislikes her net identit though, she winds up putting it to good use, which is somehting I admire about her.
