Ender in Exile Edit
Alessandra was born in Monotoli, Italy. She and her mother, Dorabella Toscano, were volunteers to travel to a colony in order to rid themselves of their poverty, and were then selected to go to Shakespeare.
At the start of the voyage, she chose to stay awake instead of going into stasis. With her mother's plan, she tried to make Ender Wiggin fall in love with her, but they were not successful; instead, he helped her escape from her mother's manipulating clutches and live out her own life on Shakespeare. She later married Po Tolo and was pregnant with a child.
