Third was a derisive term used to refer to children who had two older siblings, which was generally forbidden by the population laws reinforced by the Hegemony. Usually, if a couple gave birth to a Third, they were prosecuted and lost their jobs. Ender Wiggin, a talented boy whose fate was chosen by the government to be The One, was an exception to this harsh policy. Shortly after Ender Wiggin defeated the Formics on their homeworld, the population laws were lifted, enabling couples to have more than 2 children.
