    Have you read the book? Maybe there's an explanation in it?

    Oh, I think I've found something:
    "He, however, who would be a firstling, let him take care lest he also become a lastling! " — Thus Spake Zarathustra A book for all and none

    Boy, I have no idea. I hope if I read the book it would make more sense.

    Maybe it's their way of referring to the last one(s) born?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    The book seems to be a book for adolescents about a Yeti (abominable snowman, altough in this case snowwoman) who is the last of her species. "Lastling" refers to her.
