    • In a note posted on the Hanso Foundation website, he referenced the error of keeping his work “in shadow;” expressed regret for costing people their happiness & some their lives; promised that “transparency and oversight will be our guiding principles” as they continue their work to “bring rebirth to a dying people and a dying land”
    • In that same note, he references his daughter “Rachel Blake” and a former colleague “Dr. Thomas Werner Mittlewerk” whom he claims to have a “dark entity” of a “regime.”

Gary Troup

  • A supposed author who was on the plane
  • Wrote the manuscript for “Bad Twin” that Sawyer was shown reading on the island
  • Amazon.com has a created video interview with some additional clues: Gary Troup video interview
  • Amazon.com is also selling his book “Bad Twin” (see below)
  • “Bad Twin” opens with the bio of Gary Troup: “Gary Troup was a confirmed bachelor.  Long on charm but short on commitment, he’d kept his affections in check — until he met Cindy Chandler, a flight attendant on Oceanic Airlines.  All indications are that he was completely smitten with her: It is to Cindy that he dedicated this book; with characteristic slyness, he even gave her a cameo role to play . . . If death can ever be kind, perhaps it was a kindness that the new lovers were lost in the same catastrophe, neither having to mourn the other.”

Rachel Blake

Rachel Blake

  • Daughter of Alvar Hanso
  • Created a series of investigative videos (as part of “The LOST Experience” game) detailing the goings-on of Dr. Thomas Mittlewerk, the Hanso Foundation and the DHARMA Initiative.
  • Her current whereabouts are unknown.

Radvinsky

  • Notes:
    • Previously inhabited The Swan Complex with Kelvin Inman
    • Kelvin claims that Radvinsky started the “Blue Light Blast Door Map” & made edits to the Orientation Film of the Swan Complex
    • If Radvinsky made these edits AND was the one drawing the map, it’s possible that he visited the other complexes and left pieces of the film in various parts of the island (such as the hidden the film clip within the Bible of “The Arrow” complex).

Dr. Thomas Werner Mittlewerk

  • A collegue of Alvar Hanso’s that works with the Vik Institute
  • Has called on his team to release a virus upon local villagers (on the island?) that he believes is the key to eliminating poverty, famine and war; the virus’s target mortality rate is 30%.
  • According to Alvar Hanso, Mittlewerk has distorted the efforts of the DHARMA Initiative to tragic ends
  • This listing is INCOMPLETE, please submit further facts on Dr. Thomas Werner Mittlewerk
