Sayid was ordered to kill her boss

S1 - S2 - S3 - MP - S4 - S5 - S6


Elsa is a character in "The Economist". Firstly appearing to be a girlfriend of Sayid, she is in fact revealed to be a spy working for an unnamed "economist" and trying to kill Sayid and his boss.


Elsa is sitting in a cafe when Sayid walks in. He asks in German if the seat opposite her is taken. He sits down and looks at his map, and asks her for directions to Potsdamer Platz. She tells him it's one block down and across the road, and continues to introduce herself as Elsa. When Sayid asks what she does for a living, she indicates that she works as a personal assistant for an economist.

On their fifth date, they plan to go to the opera. She attempts to leave her pager at home, explaining that she doesn't care if her boss calls, she wants to spend the night with Sayid. Sayid objects and says he doesn't want her to lose her job because of him, and takes the pager with him. Elsa asks Sayid why he is still in Berlin, and he replies his job is taking longer than expected. Elsa tells him that she hoped the reason for him staying was her.

Elsa and Sayid are lying in bed. She expresses sadness about not knowing anything about Sayid. He agrees to tell Elsa everything about him when her pager goes off and she announces that her boss needs her. She begins to get dressed and Sayid tells her she needs to leave Berlin immediately. Sayid says people will be asking questions about her boss, indicating he has been or is going to be killed. She pulls a gun and shoots him on the left side of his chest. Elsa calls her boss and speaks to him in German, saying that she has shot but not killed him, and planned to obtain information from him. After visually locating his gun, Sayid picks up an item off the floor and throws it at the mirror, cracking it. She walks over to see what has happened, when Sayid reaches for his gun and shoots her twice in her stomach, killing her.


Elsa's bracelet
  • Elsa is also the name of the blond love interest in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Both are double agents who betray the protagonists, and Berlin figures prominently in both of their stories.
  • Elsa is the name of Lohengrin's wife in the Wagner opera "Lohengrin," about a man who must keep his true identity hidden from his lover. In the end, she causes the secret to be revealed, and the work concludes with her death.
  • Elsa died the same way as Sayid's previous blonde love interest, Shannon, did: shot in the abdomen.
  • The bracelet that Elsa wears bears a strong resemblance to Naomi's bracelet. However, Damon Lindelof confirmed in an interview that the two bracelets have no connection beyond the second reminding Sayid of the first. [1]
  • Sayid's search for Potsdamer Platz is very likely a reference to the 1987 Wim Wender's film Wings of Desire. In one scene, an old man named Homer searches in vain for Potsdamer Platz, but finds only rubble, weeds and the graffiti-covered Berlin Wall.

Rise of the Empire era

Esla was an Elder of the Melodie species and the mother of Aragon. She was the "keeper of legends" for Sistra Mountain's Melodie community. She was long dead by 22 ABY, when her homeworld of Yavin 8 was visited by Jedi trainees Anakin Solo and Tahiri Veila, who were accompanying Lyric (who was going to undergo her Changing Ceremony since she had turned twenty years old) and were seeking information on the origins of the Golden Globe. According to her son Aragon, Esla was beautiful, with thick, long black hair, yellow eyes, and pale pink lips.

Because of her position, she remembered the history of Yavin 8 which was passed down from generation to generation. In 3,997 BBY, the Massassi visited the moon to obtain information on how to free their children from the Golden Globe which had been constructed by the Dark Lord of the Sith Exar Kun to drain the life energies of its captives and to control the Massassi. Since the Melodies had not been able to help, they left messages engraved in the rocks and caves of the moon so that someone might be able to read them and rescue their children.
