Valentine

Edner's only true family

Valentine Loves Ender Unstintingly

Valentine is Ender's older and only sister. She is ten years old and is highly intelligent for the average kid. While everyone in Ender's life secretly sees him as a freak, she doesn't. She cares for Ender more than anyone, even his parents. When Graff is speaking to Ender and he says "Valentine loves me" (Card 26), Graff tells him "With all her heart. Completely, unstintingly, she's devoted to you, and you adore her" (Card 26).

Fun Fact

Glossophobia

Valentine's biggest fear is giving speeches. The day she has to give one in school she suddenly becomes "sick". Peter says " Another oral exam, huh? You should relax and enjoy it. It could be worse" (Card 22). Then Valentine says "I don't know how" (Card 22).
