Charlotte Malkin supposedly drowned but came back to life while Dr. Ian McVay was performing an autopsy. McVay was told that she had spent two hours in the water. She was brought to him "dead". When he began the autopsy, however, it appeared she came back to life, as documented in an audio recording (which includes Charlotte mentioning John Locke by name).


Charlotte delivers a message from Yemi.

Her mother, Joyce Malkin, claimed the resurrection was a miracle. According to her, Charlotte drowned in a river, then woke the next day. Her father Richard Malkin claimed that his wife was lying to discredit him; Malkin worked as a psychic but admitted to being a fake.

Eko, tasked with investigating her mother's claims, went to see Charlotte, but her father refused to let the two speak to each other.

She stopped Eko at the airport to deliver a message to him from Yemi - she claimed to have seen Yemi while she was "between places", after the drowning incident. ("?")


  • Charlotte is of French origin, and its meaning is "little and womanly". It is the feminine diminutive of Charles, and has been in use in England since the 17th century. Both ultimately come from a Germanic source, the Old English being "churl."
