Mazer Rackham: Hero of Earth who lead the space fleet which soundly defeated the second invasion. Sent into space at near-light speed to remain alive and be prepared to teach the next commander for the Third Invasion. He is met by Ender on the asteroid colony/Command School complex, Eros, where he serves as Ender's final teacher before the epic battle that will decide the fate of humanity. "it was Mazer Rackham, a little-known, twice-court-martialled, half-Maori New Zealander whose Strike Force broke up and finally destroyed the bugger fleet in the action around Saturn."
“I am your enemy, the first one you've ever had who was smarter than you. There is no teacher but the enemy. No one but the enemy will tell you what the enemy is going to do. No one but the enemy will ever teach you how to destroy and conquer. Only the enemy shows you where you are weak. Only the enemy tells you where he is strong. And the rules of the game are what you can do to him and what you can stop him from doing to you. I am your enemy from now on. From now on, I am your teacher.”
“Humanity does not ask us to be happy. It merely asks us to be brilliant on its behalf. Survival first, then happiness as we can manage it.”
“"Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man stupid and blind in the eyes"”
