Nathaniel Lester

Known to most as the crazy "Britboy", he's the less-than-sane Commander of Tiger Army

0 · 268 views · located in Battle School

a character in “Ender's Game”, as played by Jacopo


Name: Nathaniel Lester

Nickname: Britboy

Age: 9

Ethnicity: British

Grade level: 3rd Year

Appearance: Unlike most kids at Battle School, Nathaniel refuses to get his hair shaved into a buzz cut and instead holds on to his shoulder-length mop of whitish-blonde hair. He ties it back while in the battle room, and members of his toon often joke that Nathaniel's hair is the reason they lose battles- because its so visible. Similarly, he's also referred to as "Pretty Boy" because of his hair. Nathaniel is on the tall side for his age, with intense grey eyes. While he's not exactly bulked up, Nathaniel is lean and wiry- someone you wouldn't want to get into a fight with.

Personality: Like almost everyone else at Battle School, Nathaniel has grown rather crude in his use of language over his years there. He has no verbal filter- he'll utter the worst profanities without batting an eye. He's a sarcastic, cruelly funny, dominant type, seeming to be built for the role of a leader. People naturally look at him to lead, because he gives off an air of knowing what he's doing, which gives him an excuse to be as sarcastic as he wants. Despite his frequent insults, Nathaniel is rather charismatic and has gained the loyalty of his peers. Even though he can be cruel, Nathaniel doesn't intentionally hurt people- everything he says can be taken as lighthearted. Despite that, however, Nathaniel has gotten a reputation over the years for being rather insane at times. It can't be argued that he's a brilliant commander, but outside of the Battle Room, he can't be trusted to act rationally.

History: Nathaniel went to public school in England, where his extraordinary intellectual talents were quickly noticed by the teachers there. After scoring rather high on the Battle School test, Nathaniel was shipped off into outer space. He was part of a premature group of launchies that was promoted to an army because of their proficiency; Nathaniel at first was traded between armies quite often because many commanders didn't like a sarcastic, smart-talking newbie out-thinking them. He was finally put in Tiger Army, which had a commander, Han Zhen, that was able to look through the smart-alec façade and tap the strategic potential in Nathaniel. Because of that, Nathaniel respected Han greatly. He was soon promoted to a toon leader in Tiger Army, enjoying a large amount of success in winning battles. When Han graduated, Nathaniel naturally became the commander.

Specific Skills: Nathaniel has a reputation for being a brilliant strategist; part of his success comes from the fact that he almost never plays it safe. His toon members see him as crazy because of his reckless, daring plans that seem to always work. Nathaniel's strategies are of the all-or-nothing type; he'll give out orders that seem completely suicidal, but if they're followed his plan plays out like a beautiful symphony. He's decent enough at shooting, but none of his talents lie in the actual actions of the game- Nathaniel is more of the person who directs things from above.

Army: Tiger Army

Rank in Army: Commander
