Katherine Anne Austen, more commonly known as Kate, is a fugitive and a passenger aboard Oceanic Flight 815


Before the flight

Born in 1977 and raised in rural Iowa, Katherine Anne Austen was raised by her mother, Diane, and Sam Austen, who Kate believed was her biological father. However, her actual biological father was a man named Wayne. Recently before the flight takes place, Kate murdered an unidentified person. She is able to evade capture for awhile, until she is caught up to by Edward Mars.

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

Flight 815

Kate is escorted back to her seat by Mars after exiting the bathroom and running into Jack

During the flight, Kate is seated next to Edward Mars. She (most likely intentionally) stumbles upon Jack Shephard after leaving the lavatory, stealing a pen which was in his coat pocket.

After the flight

Edward Mars passes himself and Kate through customs, at which time Kate asserts that she has to use the restroom. After making sure there is no one else in the lady's room, Mars tells her she has two minutes. Kate tries to use the pen she stole from Jack to unlock her handcuffs, but she arouses the suspicion of Mars before she can finish the task. After knocking him unconscious and stealing his gun Kate flees from the room and runs into an elevator. Sawyer is the only other occupant, and he indicates that he knows she is a fugitive, having recognized her from the plane. Two airport security guards enter the elevator, and Sawyer helps Kate to evade their detection. Kate escapes the airport through an employee exit, then fails to steal a cab from Neil Frogurt. Seeing Edward Mars rallying the airport security agents outside the airport, Kate panics and steals a different taxi, this time using the gun she stole to convince the driver to drive. When the driver says he already has a passenger, we see that Claire Littleton is already in the car.
