Because of the finality of the ending of Ender’s Game, with the establishing of a new relationaship between the human species and the buggers, very little speculation is dealt with about Ender’s future.  But based on the skills Ender has attained through his military training and experiences, we can assume that his leadership skills, and his operational creativity at solvig problems, along with his strong attachment to his sister Valentine, we can assume he will find a fruitful occupation (not in the military) and will continue to play his “game”—reconciliation rather than confrontation, understanding of similarities rather than exaggeration of differences.  He will have overcome the social stigma of being a Third, and, if still drawn toward government work, could be a good ambassador or peace-maker in the world confederation.
