During The Others confrontation with Jack’s search party (for Michael), the leader states “Bring her out, Alex.” (“her” referring to the bound & gagged Kate); a girl of about 16 was on the boat during the kidnapping of Walt from the raft (this may have possibly been Alex)
    • *Most likely was the girl that rescued Claire (and her unborn baby) from “The Others” Dharma Complex (where Claire was being kept to have her baby) [she wasn’t referenced by name, but it makes the most sense.]

Desmond David Hume

Desmond

  • Age/Date of Birth:
    • ?? / ??
  • Occupation:
    • Around-the-World Racer
  • Connection(s):
    • Met Jack while training in a stadium
  • Supernatural Characteristic:
    • Talked about faith and correctly predicted Jack’s future wife Sarah would be miraculously healed.
  • Reason on the island:
    • Apparently crashed here during his around-the-world race
  • Resides:
    • With the Survivor’s of Flight #815
  • Notes:
    • Resided on the island for quite some time; introduced to the “108” machine by previous inhabitant “Kelvin”;
    • took over operating the “108” machine (entering “the numbers” every 108 minutes);
    • likes to call everybody “brother”
    • like to tell people that he’ll see them “in another life”
    • His girlfriend’s name is “Penelope.” In Homer’s “The Odyssey,” Penelope was the name of Odysseus’ wife. She remained loyal, waiting for many years for Odysseus to sail home from Troy. In a similar vein, Desmond’s Penelope is continuing her search (off the island) for Desmond after his disappearance from the around-the-world boat race held by her father.
    • There are claims that the make of Desmond’s boat (“Elizabeth”) is a Swan; a Nautor Swan to be exact.
    • After setting off the fail-safe underneath the “Swan Complex,” Desmond seems to have the ability to foresee events (such as Locke’s speech about saving the survivors of flight #815 that went looking for “The Others” camp & about the failure of Claire’s roof)

    • before he went outside, he’d don a protective suit and oxygen tank (which he would then remove once he was outside of the complex & away from Desmond’s view)
    • appears to have been accidentally killed in a scuffle with Desmond after Desmond followed him outside of the complex (he had been secretly repairing Desmond’s boat to get off the island)
