The Others, led by Tom make themselves known in great numbers to Jack, Sawyer, and Locke.

"O-Missions" is a term for when the Others assemble a strike team to undertake a mission, such as kidnapping Walt ("Exodus, Part 1"), or invading the survivors' camp. ("Through the Looking Glass, Part 1") The nature of these missions was best summarized by Ana Lucia (a tail-section survivor who felt personally victimized by the Others). ("Abandoned")

3x23 AtGunpoint
Standoff at the last major "O-Mission" before the Others retreated for a period.

An "O-Mission" refers to a mission of the Others, which usually includes a combination of Ben, Richard, Tom and other members sent on infiltration or military operations.

ANA LUCIA: They came the first night that we got here and took three of us. Nothing happened for two weeks, then they came back and took nine more. They're smart, and they're animals, and they could be anywhere at any time. Now we're moving through the jungle - their jungle - just so you can save your little hick friend over here. And if you think that one gun and one bullet is going to stop them - think again. So shut your mouth and keep moving.


Definition

To be considered an "O-Mission", at least one Other must be responsible for the idea of performing the mission, though one or more members of the "A-Team,", "B-Team" or Freighter may support this plan. Additionally, any of the base members of the Others: Ben, Richard, Tom, Bea and Pryce may assume leadership of a mission. This number has been supplemented from time to time as Ethan, Goodwin, Mikhail and Pickett have been called upon by Ben or Richard to serve the interests of the Others.

An "O-Mission" is further defined here as an individual or strike team targeting an individual or group of individuals for capture (in the case of the survivors) or elimination (in the case of the mercenary team).

The term for a primary or main survivors mission is an "A-Mission," the term for a supportive or independent survivors mission is a "B-Mission," the term for an Others mission is an "O-Mission" and the term for a Freighter mission is an "F-Mission." Each are interpreted as reactions usually counter to the goals of "O-Missions."

Picture Name Status Role Overview
Richardmini2
Richard Defected to "A-Team" Leader, communicator with Jacob Richard has been a strong presence within the hierarchy of the Others though only rarely has he been seen in an unquestioned leadership position. He has remained a strong spiritual leader to the less prominent members of the Others and remains as a check to any "O-Mission" he feels is not the wisest choice.
Ben-mini
Ben Defected to "A-Team" Leader, DHARMA-background Ben was the newly appointed leader of the Others following the Purge in 1992 when the DHARMA Initiative was wiped out by the "Hostiles." During his time, and due largely in part to the crash of Oceanic 815 over the Island, he has organized nearly every "O-Mission."
Juliet-mini
Juliet Deceased Semi-leader, doctor/fertility researcher Juliet initially worked as a fertility specialist within the Others, where she was slowly broken down by Ben, resulting in her coercion into several "O-Missions." She eventually gave her allegiance to the survivors when she tired of Ben forcing her to live his dream.
6x01 Dogan
Dogen Deceased Leader, Temple-dweller Dogen has a strong communion with the Island and is an Other charged with leading the Others taking refuge at the Temple. He does this by speaking only in Japanese to his people, effectively separating himself from them so they follow his command in protecting the Island from forces that would destroy it.
6x01 Lennon
Lennon Deceased Semi-leader, Temple-dweller Lennon is Dogen's translator to separate his status from that of the rest of the Others. He resides at the Temple and engages in "O-Missions" productive toward protecting the Temple stronghold and the Island.
Pryce-mini

MsKlugh-mini
Ms. Klugh Deceased Semi-leader, interrogator Ms. Klugh was a very subtle, yet powerful force within the Others who was very loyal to Ben and would work in conjunction with Tom and Pickett, usually involving extraction and kidnapping missions.
Tom-mini
Tom Deceased Semi-leader, interrogator Tom served as the voice of the Others in their personal interactions with the survivors and laid down the terms of "the line" that should not be crossed in order to maintain their tense "understanding." He served primarily on extraction and kidnapping missions, often at the behest of Ben, Klugh, or Pryce.
Pickett-mini
Pickett Deceased Semi-leader, soldier Pickett was in control of the Others security detail at the time of the crash of Oceanic Flight 815 in which he often participated in missions to capture and guard survivors of the crash at the behest of his superiors.

Ethan-mini2
Ethan Deceased Semi-leader, DHARMA-background, doctor/surgeon Ethan was the skilled surgeon of the Others who worked very closely with fertility specialist Juliet before he was ordered by Ben to inflitrate the middle-section survivors' camp to compile a list and report back to him. Although he served Ben's will in several "O-Missions," his rogue, aggressive nature led him to act outside the jurisdiction of his superiors.
Goodwin-mini
Goodwin Deceased Semi-leader, doctor, chemical technician Goodwin was an Other involved romantically with Juliet, resulting in Ben's jealousy and his sending of Goodwin to the tail-section survivors to compile a list and report back to him. He was instrumental in the kidnapping of many Tailies due to his charming facade.
Mikhail-mini2
Mikhail Deceased Semi-leader, technical skills, soldier Mikhail was an extreme loyalist of Ben who manned the Flame station for the Others.

Day 1-44 (Season 1)

The first 44 days of the Oceanic Flight 815 survivors on the Island was supplanted with the ominous threat of the Others. While it was a subtle presence for the mid-section survivors, it was an aggressive presence for the tail section. This established the "O-Mission" as being one of stealth or infiltration being masterminded by Benjamin Linus at the DHARMA Initiative Barracks with forces showing up intermittently to terrorize the survivors respective beach camps. The primary "O-Missions" in Day 1-44 consisted of Ethan and Goodwin being planted in the mid-section and tail section camps, respectively, as well as fixation on abducting survivors for unknown purposes (specifically children)...

Infiltrate the Mid-Section

Infiltrate the Mid-Section
Outcome: Half-Accomplished; Ethan successfully co-habitated with the survivors for two weeks, but was eventually discovered to be a spy before he could make his list of the middle section survivors.

Background: On September 22, 2004, an electromagnetic anomaly within the Island triggered by a system failure in the Swan caused the mid-air break-up of Oceanic 815, which had aftershocks that were immediately felt by the Others at the Barracks. Reacting to the unexpected event, Ben Linus sent Ethan Rom, the Others' chief doctor and surgeon to investigate the wreckage of the middle section, make lists of the survivors, and blend into their campsite as he waited for further instructions.
Discoveries: Locke's healing, Claire's pregnancy
Relation to Lost storyline: When some of the survivors moved to the caves, Ethan followed them and tried to test Claire's pregnancy to make sure that the baby was not sick as so many had been on the Island before. Yet, when Claire woke up in the middle of the injection, Ethan was forced to retreat and Claire became convinced that someone was trying to hurt her and her baby. Hurley took it upon himself to take a census of the middle section survivors, and compared it with the manifest from the plane that Sawyer had. When Ethan realized that a census was being taken, he realized that it was only a matter of time before the survivors realized he wasn't on the plane.

Background: On September 22, 2004, an electromagnetic anomaly within the Island triggered by a system failure in the Swan caused the mid-air break-up of Oceanic Flight 815, which had aftershocks that were immediately felt by the Others at the Barracks. As punishment for his affair with Juliet (whom Ben deemed as "his" woman), Goodwin was sent to infiltrate the tail section and make a list in three days for review by Jacob to see who should be "taken."
Discoveries: None
Relation to Lost storyline: Goodwin established himself more predominantly in the tail section campsite than Ethan, but he still gained the trust of Ana Lucia, the de facto leader of the Tailies. The list was successfully made by Goodwin regarding the tail section and sent to the Barracks for further examination.

Ethan pretended to go run for help but instead doubled back and surprised the two, staring vacantly at Claire, the newest pregnant woman on the Island since the rest had died from infection.
Discoveries: Ethan wanted Claire for her pregnancy, the Hatch
Relation to Lost storyline: Jack, Kate, Locke, and Boone proceeded after Claire when it became apparent from Hurley's census that Ethan was not on the plane.

Relation to Lost storyline: Before he could successfully kidnap Claire and bring her back to the Staff, Ethan was ambushed by the "A-Team" and executed by Charlie.

Corresponding F-Mission: None
Background: With the realization that the Others knew their position, Ana Lucia ordered her people to extinguish the signal fire on the beach and trek inland through the jungle to avoid further victimization. It was around this time, nearly a month into their time on the Island, that Ana Lucia began to suspect Nathan, a fellow survivor, of being "one of them" and imprisoned him in the tiger pit she had built specifically to interrogate him. He was later released in the night by Goodwin who promptly snapped his neck before he could reveal that Goodwin was the spy of the Others.
Discoveries: Goodwin was exposed, Juliet "belongs" to Ben
Relation to Lost storyline: The Tailies had by now disappeared from the Others, who were having trouble tracking them and monitoring their progress across the Island. When Ana Lucia realized Goodwin was never on the plane, she confronted him and killed him with a stake to the chest. Although the Others failed to relocate the Tailies' position in the jungle, a recon team led by Tom and Pickett came across the dead body of Goodwin, reporting it to Ben. Ben, now annoyed by Juliet pressing for Goodwin's return from assignment, brought her out to the spot where Goodwin had been killed and showed her his body. As she wept over it and accused Ben of sending Goodwin to his death, Ben told her that she was disrespectful to him by being involved with Goodwin to begin with. Since he brought her to the Island, she is "his." Goodwin's body remained there, and was stumbled upon by Jin and Eko as they attempted to return to the survivors' beach camp.

Season 2

The beginning of Season 2 ties up the transition from Season 1. With Walt in their custody, the Others slowly begin to realize that he is more "special" than they had previously realized and many are afraid to be in the same room as him. With the tail section survivors terrified by the numerous abductions by the Others when they first got to the Island, the survivor faction as a whole begins to rebel against these invisible enemies. As the survivors venture into the DHARMA stations and cover more territory on the Island, the Others begin to feel more threatened by their "guests" and deliver a message for them to stay away. But that all changes once their leader, Benjamin Linus, is captured incidentally in one of Danielle Rousseau's nets and the survivors find him...

The fourth season marked the substantial retreat of the Others from the epicenter of conflict and tensions on the Island.
