This article has been nominated for renaming.
It has been suggested that this article be renamed to The Others' files - Discuss

The Others keep various files on the people they encounter on the Island. Mikhail was in charge of collecting this intelligence at The Flame. The information they collect appears to be extremely good, including many secrets such as Kate's criminal history, Sawyer's murder of Frank Duckett, and John's history with his father. They are aware of all of the true names of the characters with nicknames or aliases such as Hurley and Sawyer. It is unknown if the Others possess files on residents of the Islands who are not members of Flight 815, such as each other, or non-Others they are aware of such as Danielle Rousseau, Desmond Hume, Kelvin, Radzinsky, or the true Henry Gale.


Jack's file

Juliet reading Jack's file.

In "A Tale of Two Cities" Juliet has a file on Jack's life. It contains the following information:

  • His full name: Jack Shephard
  • His profession: spinal surgeon in St. Sebastian Hospital in Los Angeles
  • Graduated med school in Colombia, a year faster than anyone else.
  • He was married to Sarah; later contested the divorce.
  • His father died in Sydney; she has a copy of his autopsy report.
  • Sarah is now living a happy life.

In "Left Behind" while Juliet and Kate are going back to the Barracks, they are discussing about Jack. Juliet makes Kate believe that The Others know about the Losties more than they think. She says that she knows these things about Jack:

  • his birth place
Kate and Juliet talking about Jack.
  • his parents' jobs
  • his marriage with Sarah and the reason for the divorce
  • his father's death and the reason for it
  • his height
  • his weight
  • his birthday
  • his blood type

Sawyer's file

In "The Brig" when trying to convince Locke that he can kill his father without doing it himself, Richard Alpert hands him a file on Sawyer, containing:

  • His full name: James Ford
Locke reading Sawyer's file
  • His alias: "Sawyer"
  • An interpol police report saying that Sawyer killed a man in Sydney
  • Information that his parents died when he was very young.
  • High school transcripts
  • Criminal record
  • All the con jobs he was arrested for.

Mikhail's monitoring equipment

Mikhail's monitoring equipment.

In "One of Us", when Juliet and Ben enter The Flame, Mikhail's monitoring equipment can be seen. It is composed of sophisticated technology, including 6 monitors.


Files on Flight 815

Mikhail presents the following information to Ben:

  • Name of the flight: Oceanic Flight 815
  • Takeoff place: Sydney, Australia
  • Destination: Los Angeles
  • 324 people on board (including the flight crew)

He also promises Ben that he would give him detailed files on every single passenger.

Rachel's file

Rachel's file

In a flashback in "One of Us", Ben shows Juliet a file on her sister, Rachel. On the medical file, it can be seen that Rachel's cancer has returned and she won't be able to give birth to the child because by that time she would have been dead.

Later in the same episode, Mikhail carries out a live feed between Richard (who is in Acadia Park) and The Flame (on the Island). It can be seen that Rachel is alive and had given birth to her child, a healthy baby boy.

Charles Widmore's file

Ben kept a file on Charles Widmore, which he handed over to Locke after showing Locke the videotape depicting Widmore assaulting a captured Other in his purported quest to glean information about the Island. ("The Other Woman")

The Others' knowledge on the Losties

The Others call the castaways by their full names, or by their real names (instead of using an alias or oft-used nickname), using which they want to show the castaways that they are "the main group of people on the Island". Some occurrences from this type are:

Michael's list
  • The Others know the full names of the 4 members that Michael is supposed to give to the Others. ("Three Minutes") They are written on the list that Bea Klugh gave Michael. The people on the list are:
Jack Shephard
Kate Austen
Hugo Reyes
James Ford

JULIET: James!
KATE: Why'd she call you James?
SAWYER: Because that's my name.

SUN: Stop; or I'll shoot.
COLLEEN: No you won't, Sun. I know you, Sun-Hwa Kwon. And I know you're not a killer. But despite what you may think, I'm not the enemy. We are not the enemy. But if you shoot me, that's exactly what we'll become.

  • Mikhail knows the full names of Sayid, Kate and Locke. He also knows the fact that Locke had been paralyzed before the crash. ("Par Avion")

SAYID: Don't speak to us as if you know us.
MIKHAIL: Of course I don't know you, Sayid Jarrah. How could I? And you Kate Austen, are a complete stranger to me. But you, John Locke -- you, I might have a fleeting memory of, but I must be confused, because the John Locke I know was para-- [Rousseau interrupts him]
