This article is about the nun. You may be looking for one of Bean and Petra's daughters.

Carlotta was a recruiter for the International Fleet's training program and a Catholic nun.[1] She was first introduced in Ender's Shadow.



Sister Carlotta was born in Catalonia, Spain. She became a Catholic nun while there.[1]

Ender's Shadow

Eventually, Carlotta came to Rotterdam and helped test street children's potential for Battle School. Because of the many homeless children created by Hegemony population control laws, relatively few of the children even got marginal success on tests, so Carlotta set them up to be sent to a school somewhere on Earth. By around 2 BX, her early successes had graduated from college. Eventually she came to find Achilles and Bean, who were two of the best she had ever tested. Bean later told her that Achilles had killed Poke, so Sister Carlotta sent Achilles to a school on Earth where he could never hurt Bean, and sent Bean to Battle School.[1]

Shadow of the Hegemon

Sister Carlotta was killed while travelling to Bean in Thailand to see that he did not suffer from trauma due to an attempted assassination. Achilles ordered the airplane she was travelling on to be shot down with a ground to air missile in China.[2]
