Racing down the halls, he had gotten seperated from the others. While Ender could easily outrun him, Foolscap's teleportation had given him quite a head-start.

Turning the corner, he spotted the larger one wrestling with the scientist, inching the wepon closer and closer. Leveling the staff at him, he pulled the trigger.
