Character Bio

John Locke photo
Johnathan "John" Locke was one of the middle section survivors of Oceanic Flight 815. His paralysis was immediately healed upon crashing on the Island, which ultimately led him to believe that he had some sort of special connection to the Island. He was sometimes shown in opposition to Benjamin Linus, stemming from John's ability to commune with Jacob and Ben's jealousy of that ability. Seen as antithetical to Jack Shephard, he and Jack were philosophical opposites and used to share leadership among the survivors as shown on their A-Missions together. John eventually separated himself from most of the camp, and led the group of his supporters to the Barracks, where they became the first Island inhabitants to be attacked by freighter mercenaries. John then established contact with Jacob through Christian, who told him that the only way to save the Island was by "moving" it. After the Island was moved, John assumed leadership of the Others, but was then immediately separated from them as a result of the Island skipping through time. After traveling to the Orchid John left the Island. Using the pseudonym Jeremy Bentham he made contact with former castaways in an attempt to bring the Oceanic Six back to the Island with the assistance of Charles Widmore. At some point afterwards, John appeared to have hanged himself, but was in reality strangled by Benjamin Linus. His body was aboard Flight 316 when it crashed on the Island, after which he appeared to have been resurrected. He appeared to rejoin the Others as their leader and set off on a mission to kill Jacob. However, his corpse was revealed by Ilana, who claimed to have found it in the hold of Ajira Flight 316.
