Third Formic War
Vitaly was a soldier in the Third Formic War. After the defeat of the Formics, he and his fellow soldiers settled on the planet they fought on, naming him governor. While it had no name for some time, it eventually was given the placeholder name of Colony I and later Shakespeare.
Ender in Exile
Vitaly governed Shakespeare in the years after the end of the war, awaiting the arrival of Ender Wiggin and the other colonists from Earth aboard the IFcoltrans1. He died a few years before they arrived, and was succeeded by Sel Menach.
