Prior to Twentieth Century

Indeterminate time in past

Presumably 24 A.D.

  • An ancient ship, crewed by Latin-speaking people, is wrecked off the coast of the Island. Much of the crew make it to the Island. (6x15)
  • The next day, Claudia comes ashore at another part of the Island, where she is discovered by the mysterious woman. Claudia gives birth to twins, Jacob and his brother, before being killed by the woman, who becomes adoptive mother to the twin boys. (6x15)

13 years later

  • The shipwreck survivors have built a thriving community of yurts and go on hunting expeditions deep into the forest. (6x15)
  • Jacob and his brother discover the evidence of other people for the first time while hunting a boar. Their mother shows them the Source, and explains little of their destiny to protect it. Claudia visits her son in spirit, and Jacob's brother attempts to coerce Jacob into leaving for the other camp, but is beaten by Jacob and leaves Jacob and his mother for the camp. (6x15)

30 years later

  • Jacob's brother, having attained position in the other camp, has constructed a well in the hopes of reaching the Source and escaping the Island. While meeting with Jacob, he expressing hatred of other people and confirms his overriding desire to leave the Island. When his mother learns of the efforts by Jacob's brother, she visits him at his excavations where he is succeeding to access the Source. She then proceeds to knock him out and kill all the other people, destroying their camp and burying the brother's work.
  • She then takes Jacob to the Source and makes him ageless like her. After awakening and discovering the vanished camp, the brother, distraught, kills their mother. Jacob fights with him and takes him to the Source, throwing him headfirst into the water, where his lifeless body floats into the Source, vanishing. Moments later, a pillar of smoke shoots out of the cave. Jacob discovers his brother's body deep in the jungle, and places it next to his mother's in a cave. The two will become the skeletons known as Adam and Eve found by Jack, Kate, Locke and Charlie some centuries later. (1x06), (6x15)
