Although Mazor Rackham is one of the central heroes of the Formic Wars: Burning Earth and Formic Wars: Silent Strike series, there are other heroes that play a much more significant role in fighting the Formics, such as Lem Jukes, Victor Delgado, and Imala.

Were any of these characters mentioned in any of the Ender books (or other earlier Ender stories, like those in Intergalactic Medicine Show), even in passing?

It seems odd (in-universe) that they aren't well known, even though Mazor has a larger role coming in the Second Invasion (supposedly including realising that the Formics have a central intelligence, although Imala and Lem figure that out in issue #4 of Silent Strike).

  • They all new, that is correct. By the way, they should be long dead by the beginning of Ender's series. Only Mazer survived because of his space flight. – mikalai Jan 27 '16 at 19:13

Lem Jukes definitely isn't listed anywhere in Enderverse books. I re-read all of them recently, and just now did a search.

His Graphicly page states:

First Appeared In: Formic Wars #1
Created By: Aaron Johnston

Ditto Imala. Plus, her Graphicly page states:

First Appeared In: Formic Wars #1
Created By: Aaron Johnston

I don't recall any mention of Victor Delgado in the books either, but he doesn't have a Graphicly page to collaborate that.

For contrast, Mazer Rakham's page states:

First Appeared In: Ender's Game
Created By: Orson Scott Card

  • I'd never heard of Graphicly, thanks! Is the "Ender's Game" that's on Mazer's page referring to first comics appearance (i.e. in the comic adaptation of Ender's Game) or first appearance in any medium? – Tony Meyer Mar 26 '12 at 0:04
  • @Tony: judging by "Created by", i'm going to assume it was meant to mean "the book" – DVK-on-Ahch-To Mar 26 '12 at 1:05
