Okay, so this short-ass season is nearly over, but I thought I'd throw together another update of characters on Lost.
The Science Team:
Helicoptered onto the island from Kahana. Not here to rescue survivors.
Faraday: Physicist, mumbler, can't seem to complete a sentence. Knows something about distortion of time on the island.
Charlotte: Kind of an asshole. Found a polar bear in Tunisia. She's an anthropologist.
Frank: Helicopter pilot. Was supposed to be pilot on Oceanic 815.
Miles: Sees dead people. Psychic and total smart ass.
Naomi: Security for science team. Killed by Locke.
Kahana Freighter Crew:
Freighter sits 80 km off the island. Crew here to capture Ben and secure control of the island.
Gault: Captain of boat. Seems tough but fair.
Keamy: Mercenary doucheface. Kills a bunch of people. See below.
Minkowski: Radio operator. Dead after island drove him crazy.
Regina: Member of scientific team. Killed herself after island drove her crazy.
Ray: Ship's doctor. Washed ashore with throat slit.
"Kevin Johnson": Ben's spy on the boat. Saboteur.
Michael: AKA Kevin Johnson. Ben's spy on the boat. Guilt-ridden.
Charlie: Drowned shutting down radio jamming device.
Mikhail: Blew self up with grenade trying to stop Charlie.
Alex: Killed by Keamy.
Tom: Shot by Sawyer for abducting Walt and general malfeasance.
Karl: Killed by Keamy's team of mercenaries.
Rousseau: Also killed by Keamy's team.
Men Behind the Curtain:
Jacob: Leader of the Others. May be invisible. May be bullshit.
Charles Widmore: Hunting for island, and for Ben. Claims island was once his.
