John Locke is a paralyzed passenger of Oceanic Flight 815.


Before the flight

John Locke was born to Emily Annabeth Locke and Anthony Cooper on May 30, 1956. His mother was 15 years old when an unknown driver hit her, forcing an early delivery. Three months premature, John survived numerous illnesses; his nurses called him a miracle. While John's grandmother discussed adoption with a nurse, Richard Alpert smiled at baby John from an adjoining room. ("Cabin Fever")

A 5 year old John, listening to Richard. ("Cabin Fever")

John soon entered foster care. He had a foster mother named Florence, two foster sisters, Melissa and Jeannie, and an unnamed foster brother with whom he played mousetrap. In 1961, when John was five, Richard visited, saying he ran a "school for very special children" like John. He noticed John had drawn black scribbles attacking a stick figure. He laid several items on a table and and asked John which already belonged to him. John picked a knife and Richard left in a hurry, saying John was not ready to join his school. ("Cabin Fever")

Another of John's foster sisters, Jeannie, fell from monkey bars and broke her neck fatally. Jeannie's mother blamed her own negligence, and when a Golden Retriever took up residence in Jeannie's bedroom, she believed Jeannie's spirit had returned to say the accident had not been her fault. Five years later, she died and the dog vanished.("Outlaws")

As a young child, Locke joined the Webelos, where he learned skills such as identifying birds and tying knots. ("Hearts and Minds")

Teenage John's love of science attracted bullying. In 1972, Richard approached a teacher who once freed John from a locker with a Mittelos Laboratories "summer camp" invite. John turned it down, favoring sports over science. When the teacher said John could not do those things, John responded with "Don't tell me what I can't do." ("Cabin Fever")

Because these events predate the Incident in 1977, they are assumed to have also occurred in the alternate timeline.

Under unknown circumstances, Locke lost the use of his legs and was confined to a wheelchair. ("LA X, Parts 1 & 2")

Flight 815

On Flight 815, Locke talked to Boone and explained to him about how there could potentially be survivors from the plane even if it crashed in the ocean. He told Boone that he had returned from a walkabout and that he had spent ten days in the outback catching and cooking his own food.

Locke was the last to leave the plane, being manhandled into his wheelchair by two airport employees and wheeled off the plane.
