Notes

  • The teleportation effect allows downed allies to be pulled out of monster aggro fairly easily, making Rebirth a powerful tool for recovering from near-wipes in PvE.
  • The energy-drain effect of this spell makes it undesirable in the heat of battle.
  • The spells side effect of draining all of your energy can be somewhat negated by casting it with a low energy weapon set and switching back to a set with a higher energy bonus after the energy has been drained.
  • If you equip a hero monk with this spell, be sure to keep it disabled and only use it manually, as heroes make poor choices about using this in the heat of battle.
  • Updates have caused minor issues with this skill; sometimes the resurrection part of the spell will occur before the teleportation part, causing the aggro to be pulled towards the caster. This can mean trouble in the case of a near party wipe. Due to the fact that this skill upon completion removes all energy of the caster and disables the resurrected allies' skills, it becomes a great deal more difficult to survive if additional aggro is drawn.
  • Works well if combined with Glyph of Essence, as you would still lose all energy without it.

From Lostpedia

The island gives all the survivors a chance to shed who they once were and start over again.
For reincarnation and immortality, see Resurrection

According to the Season 1 DVD bonus featurette "Lost: On Location (Season 1)", director/producer Jack Bender says that Lost is "All about redemption and rebirth."

There are a number of elements in the plot to support this as an important theme of Lost, as well.

Contents

Character examples

Jack

Jack can be looked at as a prominent example of rebirth on the Island in terms of:

  • Control over his life
  • Father issues
  • Social relationships

Before he was on the Island he had perfect control over every decision made in his life. When his control began to fall apart, his relatioship with his father and his wife became strained. When he crashed on the Island, he became the de facto leader of the fuselage survivors, and regained control of his life, aside from the loud fact he was stranded on an Island. After escaping the Island, he began seeing his late father, his relationship with Kate completely deterioated, and his control began to sleep, which gives a fine example of how the Island cured Jack emotionally.

Desmond

Desmond could be seen as the more significant of the changes that occured on the Island. At first he was a man with very little faith in life and was in constant doubt regarding his relationships and the way that he was living his life. After he got on the Island his life suddenly had a purpose, which at first he shared with Kelvin but on the day of the plane crash, desmond had to take the fate of the world entirely to himself. He, later on, gets unusual powers over Time, being, as Faraday tells Desmond that he is uniquely special, because "the rules" don't apply to him and implying that Desmond is the only one who can change things.

Kate

After becoming a wanted fugitive, she spent her life running and constantly avoiding contact whenever possible. However, on the Island, she has become a key figure of her group, and has managed to in part let go of her emotions over Tom Brennan and secrecy about who she really is. It is through this that Kate was both freed and reborn on the Island.

Locke

John Locke perhaps shows a more literal example of a "second chance" on the Island, after having spent four years in a wheelchair prior to the crash of Flight 815. Arriving on the Island, Locke discovered his paralysis to be completely gone, and so began his second chance on the Island of being able to walk again. Locke quickly adapted to living on the Island, believing himself to have a greater fate there. His devote belief in destiny has led him to also join the Others, who presented him with his father. With his death arguably marks the point where Locke has completely let go of his previous life off the Island.

Shannon

Shannon is the strongest example of rebirth on the island. Initially, she acted with selfish motivations, and refused to involve herself with the main group. However, as events passed, Shannon became more caring about her fellow survivors, and when she saw Walt appear before her, she chased after him into the depths of the jungle, ultimately leading to her death. Part of Shannon's rebirth came from having someone, mainly Sayid, believe in her for the first time in her life. Her stepmother had refused to finance her ambition to take up an internship, saying she could not be trusted and could not achieve anything without sponging off others. Having someone see her as worth something as her own individual seemed to have an impact on Shannon, and indeed moments later it seemed to allow Sayid to also see Walt in the jungle for himself.

Sun

Sun has also arguably been metaphorically reborn on the Island. Before the crash, she was stuck in a marriage she partly wished to escape, even though she still deeply loved her husband, and so could not bring herself to leave him. After the plane crashed, Sun was initially kept back by Jin, who refused to allow her to get involved with the other survivors, and on a number of occasions told her to cover-up her clothing despite the heat. Indeed, Sun's jealousy was seen in "Pilot, Part 2" when Kate stripped off to bathe herself in the water was obvious. However, Sun later managed to overcome her issues and settled things with Jin, and was able to dress how she wished, cooling off by the water in "...In Translation". In a bitter twist of irony, Sun's initial motivation to leave her husband was fulfilled as she returned from The Island without Jin - albeit her feelings about her husband had dramatically changed since the day of the crash.

Walt

Even at a tender age, Walt was constantly moving around with his mother all over the world. When he arrived on the Island, he decided that he did not want to move anymore, and that he liked the Island. His time there showed that Walt had found some harmony, being with his father finally on a place where they could both stay. Indeed, Walt burned down the raft to ensure he did not have to leave. However, he had a change of heart after realizing how much Michael wished to go, and helped his father build a second raft. After being captured by the Others and then rescued, Walt left the Island hugging his father, showing his progression since the initial plane crash where they hardly knew each other and often argued. In a fit or irony, it was not until after the two left the Island that the issues were dredged up again.

Ben

Ben had a troubled childhood growing up without a mother, and a father who hated him. When he was young, he fled from the DHARMA Barracks and encountered the Others; later, when Sayid shoots him and fatally wounds him, he is brought back to the Others and presumably put through the same process as Sayid in the Temple, being drowned and subsequently and literally reborn. Richard Alpert comments that this process will make him irreversibly "one of them." Later, in unknown circumstances, Ben joined the Hostiles and played a part in the Purge, gassing his father. Ben then became leader of the Others, and the man that knows more about the DHARMA Initiative more than anyone on the Island. Ben's redemption came after he moved the Island to make it safe from Charles Widmore's plans. Ben is currently seeking a way back to the Island by trying to assemble the Oceanic Six to bring them back to the Island.

Sayid

Sayid, in LA X, having been fatally shot in the lead-up to the Incident, was brought to the Temple on instructions from Jacob, and was put through a process that presumably mirrors what Ben was as a child: he was drowned in a pool, and after being dead for several minutes, was literally reborn. It is possible that, like Ben, he is now somehow irreversibly tied to the Others.

Starting over

General rebirth symbolism and references

  • Every single one of the characters has a chance to now redeem themselves on the island after a troubled past; this appears to be the meaning of the title, "Tabula Rasa" (which means blank slate).
  • Desmond woke up naked in the woods after the Discharge which could symbolize a rebirth. ("Further Instructions")

The Lost Experience

  • On the Hanso Foundation website from September 26, it is written, "the work of the Hanso Foundation has always been intended to bring rebirth to a dying land and a dying people."

Lord Hethrir

The Rebirth was the personal worldcraft of Imperial Procurator of Justice Hethrir. Emperor Palpatine presented it to him as a reward for the cleansing of Firrerre.

Contents

History

Following the Battle of Endor in 4 ABY, Hethrir constructed a compound where he established a so-called "school" for Force-sensitive children he had kidnapped or captured. Those with potential were ensconced on Rebirth for indoctrination.[1]

Hethrir, with an ability to dampen others' Force abilities, would often prevent Non-Humans from demonstrating any Force-ability, consigning them to be sold as slaves. This was done in line with the Humanocentric policies of the Galactic Empire. Those Humans with Force-potential moved up the ranks of the Helpers, Proctors and Empire Youth.

Many of Hethrir's trainees were taken to the temple of the Waru on Crseih Station to be "purified." Waru was posing there as a healer, but occasionally killed beings brought for healing, sucking in their strength. Many of the Empire Youth that survived the purification were sent out to infiltrate the New Republic, working covertly to undermine it.

In 14 ABY, Hethrir arranged for his Proctors to kidnap the New Republic Chief of State Leia Organa Solo's three children Jaina, Jacen and Anakin while she was on an official state visit on Munto Codru in the Outer Rim. Temporarily blocking Leia's ability to sense her children, and using a pressure bomb to incapacitate the children's minders—the Wookiee Chewbacca and a local page—Anakin, Jacen, and Jaina Solo as well as the Munto Codru chamberlain's wyrwulf were captured and whisked away by skiff. They were shipped off planet to Hethrir's worldcraft, while Leia was still being advised to wait for a ransom request.

On his worldcraft, Hethrir told the children their parents were dead and that he would look after them from now on as their hold-father. The children were suspicious, however, and proved remarkably resistant to the "programming" at the school. Hethrir assigned his own son, Tigris, to look after Anakin, and put the twins in with the rest of the imprisoned children, including a Chironian girl, Lusa. The kidnapped children caused much trouble at the station, using the Force to harass the young Proctors.

Though held in separate cells, the Solo twins managed to escape their cells, taking a number of the other children with them. With the aid of a female sand dragon that Jacen communicated with, they escaped the entire compound and hid from the Proctors and Helpers in a swamp. Just as all this was happening, Leia along with Hethrir's former mate Rillao and Chewbacca arrived on their transport Alderaan and rescued the children while detaining the ill-prepared Proctors with the help of the sand dragon.

However, they were too late to rescue Anakin though, for Hethrir had already departed for Crseih Station with a phalanx of Proctors, intending to relaunch the Empire Reborn and sacrifice Anakin in the temple of the Waru. Following close on his heels, the two mothers left the children in the care of Chewbacca, R2-D2 and the worldcraft's Veubg cook Grake.

R2-D2 also programmed Hethrir's worldcraft to make a jump into the Codru system where it was captured by the New Republic and local Munto Codru forces. The worldcraft was then sent to a classified safe system where a team of New Republic scientists (including Bevel Lemelisk) was sent to examine the captured worldcraft of Hethrir in detail, researching to learn more about techniques for engineering and energy management. Some of this research led to technological advances behind the New Class starships of the New Republic Space Navy.
