Before the Island 

The ring, an heirloom of the Pace family, bore the initials of Dexter Stratton, the paternal grandfather of Megan Pace. It first belonged to Liam Pace, Charlie’s brother, who named their band, Drive Shaft, after the initials on the ring. The ring traveled down through the generations, eventually belonging to Liam.

Charlie wore the ring for the 91 days he survived on the island. However, before leaving for his fatal mission to the Looking Glass, Charlie left the ring in Aaron Littleton’s crib, passing the ring on to the infant, who in their short time together on the Island had become something of an adopted son to Charlie.

Wiki Info

In Greek mythology, Pontus or Pontos (Πόντος) (English translation: “sea”) was an ancient, pre-Olympian sea-god, one of the protogenoi, the “first-born”. Pontus was the son of Gaia, the Earth: Hesiod says that Gaia brought forth Pontus out of herself, without coupling. For Hesiod, Pontus seems little more than a personification of the sea, ho pontos, “the Road”, by which Hellenes signified the Mediterranean Sea. With Gaia, he was the father of Nereus (the Old Man of the Sea), of Thaumas (the awe-striking “wonder” of the Sea, embodiment of the sea’s dangerous aspects), of Phorcys and his sister-consort Ceto, and of the “Strong Goddess” Eurybia. With the sea goddess Thalassa (whose own name simply means “sea” but is derived from a pre-Greek root), he fathered the Telchines. Compare the sea-Titan Oceanus, the Ocean-Stream that girdled the earth, who was more vividly realized than Pontus among the Hellenes. Nevertheless, Pontus was apparently personified in a description of a painting by the 3rd century AD rhetorician Philostratus the Elder, Imagines.

In a Roman sculpture of the 2nd century AD Pontus, rising from seaweed, grasps a rudder with his right hand and leans on the prow of a ship. He wears a mural crown, and accompanies Fortuna, whose draperies appear at the left, as twin patron deities of the Black Sea port of Tomis in Moesia.
