Ender has a great fear of Peter and was one of the reasons Ender convinced himself to go to battle school. A lot of Peters violence comes from JEALOUSY towards Ender, because Ender was the one good enough for battle school. Peter is also the reason Ender does not want to be a killer. Peter and Valentine:
Valentine resents Peter and protects Ender from him. They work together to make Demosthenes and Locke, an influence on the worlds political situation. Colonal Graff Colonal Graff sees the most potential in Ender. Although he manipulates Ender with complete CONTROL, he is doing it for the best reasons. He CONTROLS Ender's DESTINY.

-Ender's destiny was predetermined before he was born.
-Ender doesn't have choices. He has to do what the adults say
APPEARENCE VS. REALITY The I.F created an environment that was not really what it seemed.
-The buggers are not actually what everyone thinks they are. They are not violent when they are not threatened
-Ender's appearance of being small and young fools everyone from his intelligence and skills
-Peter and Valentine working as Locke and Demosthenes seem older than they really are
-The truth behind battle school. No one really knows what it truly is until you are there.
-The whole world thinks the buggers are coming after them in the third invasion but really the I.F is going after the buggers. Plot Ender is introduced as well as his love for Valentine and his resentment for Peter. He beats up Stilson showing his violent side while his love for Valentine shows his compassionate side. Ender gets taken away to battle school by Colonal Graff. Ender survives at battle school while being isolated along the way. He overcomes many challenges put forward by the adults. Along the way he makes many friends and many enemies but proves he is a fighter I believe the climax of the story is Ender's final fight against the buggers and his realization that he killed the species all together. This event is what that adults have been working Ender towards his whole life. It is the final battle where they have defeated the enemy. The realization that Ender actually killed the species shows how much control they had over Ender because he did not want to kill or harm the buggers. Finally, It took billions of deaths but Ender has finally won his freedom with Valentine, finding a home to bring the Buggers species back to life. Setting Ender's game takes place in North Carolina, Battle School, Fairyland/the End of the World, Command School, and the Colony all in the future. The story taking place in the future allows for interesting technology including "desks" and equipment to work with in the battle room but still keeps classic items like cars and buses. The end!
