Protection of Jacob

Jacob's bodyguards are a group of survivors of the crash of Ajira Airways Flight 316 on the Hydra Island in 2007, presumably sent to the Island by Jacob. ("LA X, Parts 1 & 2") Ilana and Bram led the group, which was based on the question "what lies in the shadow of the statue?". This, along with their association to Richard, implies that they may be connected to the Others. They referred to themselves as the "winning side", "the good guys" and "friends". ("Some Like It Hoth")  ("The Incident, Parts 1 & 2") The Man in Black has informally referred to them as "Jacob's bodyguards." ("LA X, Parts 1 & 2")


Activities off the Island


Kidnapping Miles

Shortly before the departure of the Kahana, Bram and other members of the group abducted Miles, and tried to convince him to avoid taking part in Charles Widmore's expedition. Bram asks Miles, "what lies in the shadow of the statue?" to which Miles replies that he hasn't the slightest idea. Bram tells him he is not ready to go to the Island. Miles says that if they want him to pass on going to the Island, Bram must pay him double the $1.6 million he was contracted for, $3.2 million. Bram refused, stating that he wouldn't pay him anything, and tossed Miles out of the van. He claimed that in this upcoming war, they are going to be the "winning side." Bram's knowledge of Widmore and the fact he thinks of him as "The wrong side" suggests they view him as an enemy, possibly as an agent of Jacob's Nemesis. ("Some Like It Hoth")

Activities on the Island

Coup d'├ętat

Shortly after the crash of Flight 316, Ilana and her group found a metal crate in the cargo hold of the plane. The group attempted to open it, causing suspicions to rise from the other survivors. After successfully opening the crate, the group took over the campsite, causing one of the survivors to warn Frank of the uprising. ("Dead Is Dead")

When Frank faced Ilana and Bram, Ilana asked him "what lies in the shadow of the statue?" When Frank appeared clueless as to what the answer might be, Ilana knocked him unconscious with the butt of her gun, and ordered Bram to tie him up. ("Dead Is Dead")

The burning of Jacob's cabin

Using one of the outrigger canoes to travel from the Hydra Island to the main Island, Ilana, Bram, an unconscious Frank and the rest of the group made their way to Jacob's cabin. On the way, Bram and Ilana discussed Frank's importance as a possible "candidate", only to discover Frank was awake the entire time. Ilana eventually agreed to show Frank the contents of the crate, implying their need to show to the Others what they are up against. ("The Incident, Parts 1 & 2")

Upon reaching the cabin, Ilana and Bram found the circle of ash to be broken. Ilana entered the cabin alone, finding it deserted and ruined. She noticed a piece of cloth, nailed to the wall by a knife. The cloth embedded the image of the statue. Considering the cabin to be empty, Ilana ordered her group to burn down the cabin, and started making their way towards Jacob's place of residence. ("The Incident, Parts 1 & 2")

Facing the Others

The crate is revealed to hold the real, dead John Locke. ("The Incident, Parts 1 & 2")

Shortly after "Locke" and Ben entered the statue in order to face and kill Jacob, Ilana arrived with her group, showing no intention to pose a threat. Ilana asked to speak to Richardus, whom she asked the same question she asked Frank. Richard responded with "Ille qui nos omnes servabit" ("He who will protect us all"), which appeared to be the correct response. Ilana introduced herself, and presented the contents of the crate to Richard, Sun and the rest of the Others - the dead corpse of the real John Locke, prompting Sun to wonder who is the person that entered Jacob's residency. ("The Incident, Parts 1 & 2")

Facing the Man in Black

Bram and the other three members prepare to shoot the Monster. ("LA X, Parts 1 & 2")

Following the revelation of John Locke's deceased body, Bram and Ilana argued with Richard, who stopped them from entering the statue, stating the only Jacob may summon his visitors. Ilana, in protest, claimed that Jacob did invite them, thus their arrival to the Island. After Ben descended from the statue, claiming Jacob was alright and telling Richard Locke wanted to speak to him, Bram dragged Ben into the statue, with the other three members following him. Once inside the statue, the Man in Black welcomed Bram and his followers, commenting that Jacob was murdered and burned to ashes. Referring to them as "Jacob's bodyguards", the Man in Black dismisses them. An enraged Bram shoots the Man in Black, in the form of Locke, who is shot yet disappears soon after.

After a few moments, the Monster enters the chamber, attacking and killing the three members. Bram created a circle of ash around him, which seemed to protect him from the Monster, though he was tossed out of the circle and into Jacob's loom, eventually being impaled by a wooden board.
