SawyerS6

James Ford, better known by the alias Sawyer, and known to the DHARMA Initiative as Jim LaFleur, was one of the middle section survivors of Oceanic Flight 815. His rural Southern accent, selfishness, machismo, and folksy use of oft-abrasive nicknames belied his sophisticated and tender sides as an avid reader and a caring lover—elements of his personality that became more apparent as he spent more time on the Island.
On the Island, Sawyer used his skills as a confidence man to accomplish various ends. He hoarded material possessions to leverage power, leading to his involvement in several "A-missions". His acts of rebellion led him to, at various times, become the most hated survivor on the island, though he still formed a bond with Kate. (more...)

6x15 The Source

The Heart of the Island, also known as the Source, is a mysterious location on the Island. It consists of a glowing yellow light in a tunnel into which a river flows, ending in a waterfall near the light. The light is considered "beautiful", "the warmest, brightest light you've ever felt". However, to enter the light is forbidden, and is said to cause a fate "worse than death". The inside of the Heart is a volcanic cave with a pool in the center, plugged by a rock that glows brightly. There are remarkably high levels of electromagnetism in the cave, higher than any other location on the Island.

It is said to be a physical manifestation of "life, death, [and] rebirth". Humans are said to covet the Heart because a little bit of the very same light is inside every man—"but they always want more". According to Mother, while humans are incapable of taking the light, their attempts to do so could "put it out. And if the light goes out here... it goes out everywhere." (more...)

Statueblank

The Statue of Taweret is a monument on the Island dedicated to the Egyptian goddess of fertility, Taweret. Though its builders are unknown, the statue has stood since at least the nineteenth century, though it was partially demolished before 2004, leaving only the left foot and calf behind. The base of the statue has served as a residence for Jacob as well. The statue was first seen by the survivors of Flight 815 when Sayid, Jin, and Sun sailed around the Island in the Elizabeth, causing Sayid to note the strangeness of the fact that the statue's ruins had only four toes. The statue was later seen briefly by Sawyer's group during the time flashes.
