Valentine tried to stop Andrew from confronting Randall, but was unsuccessful. Though Ender survived the fight and was able to turn Randall away from following in his "father's" footsteps, Valentine was angry with him for encountering the troubled boy. Randall changed his name to Arkanian Delphiki, in honor of his two biological parents. Valentine and Andrew left Ganges shortly after their arrival there. They embarked on a voyage to another planet with Captain Hong, and Valentine continued writing her books, making Andrew promise not to get himself in danger of being killed again.
The two siblings traveled from planet to planet for about years, aging slowly due to the effects of relativistic travel. Around Andrew's relative twentieth birthday, the Wiggins reached the planet Sorelledolce. Upon her arrival, Valentine learned that her book about the failed Helvetica colony was a smash hit, and she was rich from the royalties.
Valentine received many fan letters on behalf of her pseudonym Demosthenes, and appreciated that people didn't realize that it was she, a young woman, to whom they were writing. Valentine and Andrew left Sorelledolce to travel to Rov after Andrew sorted out his taxes with the help of Jane.

About years later, Valentine heard about the individual Kenneth Argon on the planet of Catalunya. She sought to write a biography on him, and so she and Andrew traveled to the planet. While en route, Argon was killed and the proconsul of the planet, Dabeet Ochoa , called for a Speaker for the Dead to help calm down the agitated inhabitants of the planet. After arriving, Valentine and Andrew investigated Argon's death and his relation to the pseudo-sentient Llop.
For more than three thousand real-time years total, Valentine and Andrew traveled from planet to planet, including Moctezuma and others not specified. Eventually, they arrived at the icy world of Trondheim. There, Andrew and Valentine were both given assignments as teachers at a local college.
Because she answered her students' questions with answers and not more questions as Andrew did, Valentine was the more popular teacher. There, Valentine met and married a fisherman named Jakt. She became pregnant with their first child, a girl later named Syfte , when Andrew told her that he was leaving for a not-so-distant planet called Lusitania.
His departure was hard on Valentine as she'd spent nearly her whole life with him. Around this time, Valentine wrote the Letter to the Framlings, establishing the Hierarchy of Foreignness used to term humans and other living creatures. Over the next few years, Valentine would have two more children: Ro and Varsam. A few years after Andrew left, one of his former university students confessed to Valentine that she'd uncovered Andrew's true identity as Ender the Xenocide. The student, Plikt , became a friend to Valentine, and tutored Syfte and their other children as they grew up. Valentine continued her work at the university, but longed to be with her brother Andrew.
Twenty years later, it was revealed that Lusitania was going to be destroyed by the same weapon Andrew had used against the Formics three millennia earlier, the Molecular Disruption Device. Reviving her identity as Demosthenes, she exposed the plan, turning public opinion against Starways Congress. Valentine named the atrocity the Second Xenocide , due to the fact that it would destroy the sentient Pequeninos , the natives of Lusitania.
With her husband Jakt and her three children, including Plikt, a nearly sixty-year-old Valentine left Trondheim to stand with Andrew as he led a rebellion against Starways Congress on Lusitania. Valentine and her family traveled for several subjective weeks, heading toward a rendezvous with Andrew's stepson, Miro Ribeira. She wrote many essays as Demosthenes, trying to keep Starways Congress in check and hoping to prevent the destruction of Lusitania.
She took the opportunity to be physically close to Jakt on the journey as a reward for the sacrifices he had to make to accompany her on the mission. When she finally met with the Havelok , Miro's ship, she and the young man argued about their views on the so-called "Second Xenocide". Miro felt that they should consider the option that Lusitania ought to be destroyed as the only means of protecting the Hundred Worlds from the Descolada , a deadly virus that has taken hold in every lifeform on Lusitania.
Valentine disagreed, planning to do all she could to prevent the destruction of the planet. At first, Valentine and Miro did not get along, but they quickly grew to respect each other, and Valentine made the decision to move from her ship to the Havelok for the last leg of their journey to Lusitania. On the Havelok , Valentine finally met Jane face-to-face.
Though she had been familiar with Andrew's communication with a computer program, she didn't realize the software was sentient. She had thought Jane was a code name for a group of subversive rebels. Jane stated that she had figured out a way to stop the Lusitania Fleet from destroying the planet, but it would require Jane to sacrifice her own life in the process. Valentine promised her she'd do what she could to preserve Jane's life as well as the Pequeninos, along with the sole-surviving Formic Hive Queen, who Andrew had allowed to grow and flourish on Lusitania.
When they arrived on Lusitania, both Andrew and Valentine were in their sixties; but they picked up their relationship as it had been during their intergalactic travels. Valentine was wary of meeting the Queen, as she remembered her nightmares growing up during the Formic Wars on Earth. The Hive Queen, using Andrew's close philotic connection to Valentine, spoke to her mind-to-mind. It was a frightening and yet fascinating experience for Valentine, who tried very hard to set aside her own prejudices against the Formics.
She learned, as did the others, that the Hive Queen was building starships to take her newly hatched children, along with the Pequeninos, to other habitable planets.

As they left the lair, Valentine said she felt violated by of the philotic communication with the Queen. Valentine learned that her role as Demosthenes had been uncovered by a young girl named Han Qing-jao on the planet Path. Qing-jao had exposed her political pundit identity to the leaders of Starways Congress. A short time later, after the murder of Andrew's stepson Quim by Warmaker , Valentine consulted with the colony's leaders on how to proceed.

She warned the leaders that a riot would take place and unless strict curfews were imposed, more deaths would occur. The leaders doubted her, but Andrew's other stepson, Grego , incited such a riot. Valentine confronted Grego, condemning him for his inflammatory remarks that led to a vengeful attack on the Pequeninos' land. Grego initially refused to accept responsibility for the riot and subsequent murders, but Valentine's words convinced him to do so. In an effort to help Grego figure out faster-than-light travel from his jail cell a consequence for the riot , Valentine approached another of Andrew's stepsons, Olhado.
She joined Olhado at the jail when he met with Grego. They had developed a theory for faster-than-light travel, but as a historian and not a scientist, Valentine didn't concern herself too much. During Andrew's trip to Outside , a place beyond the universe, he unintentionally created a pair of humans identical to his two siblings, deemed Peter Wiggin II and Valentine Wiggin II. Valentine was wary of this reincarnation of her younger self. Though touched that Andrew had created so pure and innocent a version of herself, she felt uncomfortable around Valentine II. Valentine found excuses to avoid this younger version, nicknamed Val.
Seeing the discomfort between the two Valentines, Plikt took responsibility for Val. When Miro was baptized in the new body he'd created for himself in the Outside, Valentine was a witness. She beseeched Miro to find Andrew, who had joined his wife Novinha at the Children of the Mind of Christ monastery so that he could be with her, and convince him to return to help protect Lusitania. Valentine played a bit of matchmaker with Miro and Valentine II.
Miro was hesitant to pursue a relationship with the younger Valentine, but the older Valentine encouraged him to. A few days later, Andrew lay dying in the monastery to which he'd retreated to join Novinha. Valentine went to him there and told Novinha to let him go, and give him permission to die. The request led to an angry confrontation between the two women, and also with Plikt, who had been at Andrew's side all the while.
Each woman claimed to love Andrew the most, and each had a valid reason. Valentine's words to Novinha stung because of their truth, and she slapped Plikt, telling her that she would never have the honor of Speaking Andrew's death. Once Andrew spoke again, the three women put aside their differences to support him in his final hours.
Jane had been disconnected from her ansible network home, and her consciousness tried to find a new body wherein to live. I am a stand up comedian from Boston, living in Los Angeles.
