Dragon  Army was one of the numerous armies at Battle School. At one time, Dragon Army had the reputation of losing all of its battles, so it soon was abolished. Just a few years later though, Colonel Graff assigned Bean to construct a hypothetical army using the kids from Battle School, but Bean knew better because he knew it was an army for Ender Wiggin to be commander; he even predicted that it would be Dragon Army. Bean, despite knowing every Battle Schooler's dossier by heart, still had to take sometime to decide who to put in, for he knew with Ender's Command, this new army would be a legend. Bean decided that no one older than Ender should be in a kids army, but later decided other wise. After he had chosen 40 students, one last slot was open, so he put his friend (who later was revealed to be his brother) in and submitted the final draft to Dimak. When Ender first met his army, he was initially shocked to see none of the "veterans" were very experienced. He soon had all of the kids organized into toons right after the first practice. All of the Veterans were either toon leaders or seconds. Normally, armies consisted of 4 toon of 10 men, but Ender's army had 5 toons of 8 men.  He figured more toons be better and they could act for themselves. Ender's army soon took advantage of many of their newly-adopted tactics, and proceeded to win every battle they faced, even if these were numerous or in the same day. (Unfinished)
