The mountains were dramatic, of course, but they had not really been part of her childhood experience.

Her father ha met her in Yerevan while her mother remained home with her eleven-year-old brother and new baby... They had no doubt watched Petra on television.

'I asked if you wanted to stop for a candy before we went home, the way we used to.'

Candy. How could she have forgotten the word for candy?

Easily, that's how. The only other Armenian in Battle School had been three years ahead of her and graduated to Tactical School, so they overlapped only for a few months. She had been seven when she got from Ground School to Battle School, and he was ten, leaving without ever having commanded an army. Was it any wonder that he didn't want to jabber in Armenian to a little kid from home? So in effect she had gone without speaking Armenian for nine years. And the Armenian she had spoken then was a five-year-old's language. It was so hard to speak it now, and harder still to understand it. "

Armenia needed a hero. She [Petra] was the only candidate out of this war. They had shown her how the online textbooks already listed her among the ten greatest Armenians of all time. Her picture, her biography, and quotations from Colonel Graff, from Major Anderson, from Mazer Rackham.

And from Ender. 'It was Petra who first stood up for me at risk to herself. It was Petra who trained me when no one else would. I owe everything I accomplished to her. And in the final campaign, in battle after battle she was the commander I relied upon.' "

Armenian Armenia 2127 Card, Orson Scott. Shadow of the Hegemon. New York: Tor (2001); pg. 17. "'It all seems new to me,' said Petra.

'But it isn't. It never changes. Only the architecture. There are Armenians all over the world, but only because they were forced to leave to save their lives. By nature, Armenians stay at home. The hills are the womb, an we have no desire to be born.' He chuckled at his joke. "

Armenian Armenia 2127 Card, Orson Scott. Shadow of the Hegemon. New York: Tor (2001); pg. 21. "She would read Armenian literature because she wanted to learn Armenian, not because she thought it actually mattered what some expatriate like Saroyan thought about the lives of children in a long-lost era of a far-off country.

Armenian Armenia 2127 Card, Orson Scott. Shadow of the Hegemon. New York: Tor (2001); pg. 110. "'...And you're Armenian, and they spent a lot of years being oppressed by Russia in the old Communist days. But Petra, just how Armenian are you? What's really good for Armenia anyway? That's what I'm supposed to say to you, anyway. To get you to see that Armenia benefits if Russia comes out on top. No more sabotage. Really help us get ready for the real war. You cooperate, and Armenia gets a special place in the new order. You get to bring in your whole country. That's not nothing, Petra. And if you don't help, that doesn't do a thing for anybody. Doesn't help you. Doesn't help Armenia. Nobody ever knows what a hero you were.' "
Armenian Azerbaijan 1990 Anderson, Jack. Zero Time. New York: Kensington Publishing (1990); pg. 76.
