Andrew Delphiki, best known as Ender, was the eldest son of Petra Arkanian and Julian Delphiki Jr. and a passenger on the Herodotus.[1] He was first introduced in Shadow of the Giant.


Shadow of the Giant

Andrew was born two months premature due to the genetic manipulation of Anton's Key that he carried.[2]

He was taken into space aboard the Herodotus along with his father Bean, and his siblings Carlotta and Cincinnatus. One of his brothers who did not carry Anton's Key stayed behind on Earth and was also named Andrew to avoid suspicion when this Andrew disappeared. To differentiate between the two, Bean called him Ender, for Andrew "Ender" Wiggin.[2]

The four-person family traveled at relativistic speeds to forestall death, waiting for scientists on Earth to develop a cure for Anton's Key.[1]
