Background

After creating the characters, the overall storyline, and the first two episodes of Lost along with J.J. Abrams, Lindelof has taken over as the head writer of the show, since Abrams has numerous other projects on his plate. Damon's previous experience includes being the writer of episodes of MTV's Undressed, Nash Bridges, Wasteland and Crossing Jordan and Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk (2006), a comic book miniseries; his first television writing job was with Wasteland. He is a graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Lindelof is an avid Star Wars fan, as is Abrams.

Lindelof produced the 2009 Star Trek film which was directed by Abrams. In April 2009, it was announced that he will write the sequel to the film with Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.

Damon Lindelof is credited as a writer on the following episodes of Lost:

Season 1 Season 2

He also wrote the mobisodes "Arzt & Crafts" and "Jack, Meet Ethan. Ethan? Jack". Another mobisode, "The Envelope", was co-written with J.J. Abrams (and was actually a deleted scene from "A Tale of Two Cities").

Personal quotes

"There are occasions where we basically say “What was Juliet's husband's first name?”, and if Gregg (Nations) is not sitting in his office we will log into Lostpedia to get that answer." - On Lostpedia


"Sometimes we get frustrated ourselves and decide it's time to download a big chunk of mythology. And then the audience says, 'I find this confusing and alienating and too weird.' So then we pull back, and they say, 'You're not giving us enough'." - On trying to satisfy the audience of Lost


"Here's what you won't see: Globetrotters, zombies, the guy Meredith Grey didn't choose, coconut radios, Laura Palmer, Jack laughing, Desmond running naked through the jungle, the Others' annual talent show, buttons, timers, electromagnetic anomalies, Cylons, cyclones, or clones, nanobots, Captain Jack Sparrow, and time travel." -- On the Season 3 premiere


"And considering I have now read Bad Twin, Gary Troup got exactly what he deserved." -- On the Identity of Turbine man


"I will probably be dragged through the streets and burned in effigy if fans have to wait another year for 'Lost' to come back. And who could blame them? Public sentiment may have swung toward the guild for now, but once the viewing audience has spent a month or so subsisting on 'America's Next Hottest Cop' and 'Celebrity Eating Contest,' I have little doubt that the tide will turn against us." -- On the effects of the WGA strike


"The greatest piece of popular fiction ever produced." -- Featured on the back of recent reprints of the graphic novel 'Watchmen'

Damon, known in Japan as Taira Taizan, is a former Obelisk Blue student. He couldn't always get the card he wanted to draw so he went to live out in the jungle to perfect his strange drawing technique since the nature was the only thing that answered his call for help perfecting his drawing technique. That alongside a survival training gave him a wildman-like appearance wearing what's left of his pants.

He resurfaces sometime later in order to draw the right sandwich (namely an eggwich) during a night raid. He ended up running afoul of Jaden and the others which led to a point by the waterfall when Ms. Dorothy recognized him. He ended up dueling Jaden by the waterfall. When it came to using Miracle Draw in an attempt to draw Shield Crush to destroy Wroughtweiler, he guessed wrong. Damon was defeated by Jaden using Elemental Hero Flame Wingman and regressed back to a civilized state by the next day.

Damon returns during the second year as one of the few Obelisk Blue students left untouched by the Society of Light. Retaining his wild appearance, he participates in one duel of the Genex Tournament against Mathmatica and defeats him.

Damon's character is based on Tarzan. In the English dub, Damon replaces the word "I" with "me" when referring to himself, to further the Tarzan homage.

Deck

Damon uses a Draw Deck. His strategy centers primarily on powering up his "Drawler" monster by returning cards from his hand to the bottom of his deck, or inflicting Direct Damage through the effect of "Miracle Draw".

In Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force after aquiring Damon's Deck Recipe, the player is also given the card, "Doron".
