Sent to the Island from the Kahana

The mercenary team came to the Island aboard the freighter Kahana to apprehend Benjamin Linus and kill the rest of the Island's inhabitants. They were responsible for the deaths of at least six people on the Island. They were led by Martin Keamy, who was hired by Charles Widmore. All members of the mercenary team were killed while trying to accomplish their mission.

On the freighter

Keamy skeet-shooting ("Meet Kevin Johnson")

Michael, posing as a deckhand named Kevin Johnson, witnessed Keamy, Omar, and two other mercenaries along with one of the freighter's crew skeet-shooting off the deck. When Michael questioned Keamy about the need for firearms on what he had thought was a rescue mission, Keamy snidely dismissed him. ("Meet Kevin Johnson")

Later, after Frank's return from his first helicopter trip to the Island, he transported Keamy and five other mercenaries back there from the freighter at night. ("Ji Yeon")

On the Island

First mission

The mercenaries force Alex to deactivate the fence. From L to R: Lacour, Omar, Keamy, Mayhew, Kocol, and Redfern. ("The Shape of Things to Come")

The mercenaries fatally shot Karl and Danielle Rousseau and took hostage Alex as the three were hiking to the security of the Temple. ("Meet Kevin Johnson") Upon coming to the sonar fence protecting the Barracks, they forced Alex to deactivate it. Unbeknown to them, however, this caused a telephone to ring and inform those in the Barracks that the fence had been shut down. ("The Shape of Things to Come")

The mercenaries commenced an assault on the Barracks, shooting and killing Doug, a blonde woman, and Jerome, three Oceanic Flight 815 survivors who had followed Locke to the Barracks for its security. They destroyed Claire's house with a rocket launcher. (Claire survived the explosion and was rescued from the rubble by Sawyer.) The mercenaries then ceased fire as Sawyer brought Claire to Ben Linus's house, revealing Ben's hiding place. ("The Shape of Things to Come")

Kocol fires an RPG round. ("The Shape of Things to Come")

Next, the mercenaries released Miles from his imprisonment in the boat house, giving him a walkie and sending him to Ben's house. Keamy used the walkie to negotiate with Ben, ordering him to come out and give himself up to the custody of the mercenaries. After Ben's refusal, a mercenary brought Ben's daughter Alex to Keamy, and he held her at gunpoint, threatening to kill her if Ben did not give himself up. When Ben again refused to comply, Keamy shot Alex in the head. ("The Shape of Things to Come")

The Monster drags Mayhew into the jungle. ("The Shape of Things to Come")

Ben promptly summoned the Monster, and it indiscriminately attacked the mercenaries. While Keamy screamed orders for the mercenaries to fall back, one unfortunate mercenary, Mayhew, was dragged back into the jungle by a tendril of the Monster. ("The Shape of Things to Come")

Mayhew was thrown 50 feet into the air, causing him internal injuries, leaving him bloodied and unable to walk without assistance. He later died of his wounds shortly after the helicopter flight back to the Kahana. ("Something Nice Back Home")  ("Cabin Fever")


Second mission

Keamy shows Gault his device. ("Cabin Fever")

After stopping for a brief respite back on the Kahana (allowing Omar time to strap a device to Keamy's arm and for Keamy to read the secondary protocol), the five remaining mercenaries returned to the Island after the shooting of Captain Gault. ("Cabin Fever")

Upon arriving on the Island five kilometers from the Orchid, the mercenaries handcuffed Frank to the helicopter and set off to the Orchid to await Ben's arrival, as predicted by the secondary protocol. Ben eventually did arrive, surrendering as a diversion so that Locke could sneak into the station. Keamy then knocked Ben out with the butt of his pistol. ("There's No Place Like Home, Part 1")

Keamy encounters Kate. ("There's No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3")

The mercenaries, with Ben as a captive, returned to the helicopter, and were preparing to leave when Kate appeared from the jungle, surprising the mercenaries. Almost immediately after her appearance, the whispers began and the mercenaries fanned out into a defensive formation. Despite their precaution, the mercenaries were taken down by knives, bolas and electrical weapons as the Others ambushed. Under the intense gunfire, a grenade attack killed Omar, leaving only Keamy to chase Ben as him and Kate sprinted into the jungle. Keamy almost caught up to Ben as he tripped, but was tackled by Sayid, and engaged in a lengthy hand to hand melee. He was stabbed by Sayid, and then shot four times in the back by Richard Alpert, who appeared from the jungle with a Luger. Afterwards, Kate, Sayid, Ben, Richard, and the Others left Keamy presumed dead in the jungle.

Keamy is stabbed to death by Ben.("There's No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3")

However, Keamy was wearing a bulletproof vest, and sneaked off into the jungle, returning to the Orchid with nothing but a combat knife to capture Ben. There he encountered Locke, who asked to talk, before being hit from behind by Ben with his telescopic baton, and then stabbed with his own knife. His death caused the Kahana to explode, marking the end of freighter mercenaries. ("There's No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3")
