Season: 2-3, Episodes: 3, Faction: The Others
Beatrice Klugh, more commonly known as Bea, was a member of the Others who seemed to have a position of leadership within the group on a similar level to Tom Friendly. On her first appearance, she introduced herself as Ms. Klugh, and Bea was revealed to be the shortened version of her first name by Tom at a later date. Ben and Juliet referred to her by her full name. Beatrice was shot dead at the Flame by Mikhail to prevent the survivors obtaining information from her about the location of the Barracks.
On the Island
2×22 – Three Minutes
When Michael was brought to the Others’ camp by Tom, he met Ms. Klugh who asked Michael several questions about Walt, including his biological connection to Walt, Walt’s age when he first started speaking, any illnesses Walt might have had, and her most notable question, “Did Walt ever appear in a place he wasn’t supposed to be?”, possibly referring to Walt being seen by some of the survivors after the raft was blown up in the water. Another possibility is a reference to the phenomenon of bilocation. When Ms. Klugh asks Michael this question, he hesitates out of surprise, and possibly an unwillingness to acknowledge that Walt had in fact appeared to him at some point.
After a week, Michael was being held captive in one of the Others’ huts. As Ms. Klugh entered in order to give Michael his dinner, he demanded again to see his son. Ms. Klugh finally agreed to let them see each other, for three minutes only. She called Pickett to bring the boy in, and watched the emotional reunion between the two. When Walt began to reveal the Others are “pretending”, meaning they’re not who they say they are, and that they make him take tests, Ms. Klugh announced, “We are not going to talk about that,” and had Walt taken out of the hut, but not before she threatened to send him back to “the room” if he did not behave.
As Walt was taken away, Michael reluctantly agreed to Klugh’s demands: release an Other who was captured by Michael’s people, and then bring four of his friends, whose names were on a list, to the Others’ camp – Jack Shephard, Kate Austen, James Ford and Hugo Reyes. (“Three Minutes”)
After three days, Michael led the four other survivors to the Others’ camp, only to discover that Jack knew he had betrayed them and did not reveal anything to the other castaways because he already had a plan. Once they reached the capsule dump they were attacked by the Others, who drugged them and took them to the Pala Ferry dock. Once there, Kate told Tom they know the beard he is wearing is fake. Tom did not understand her, as she was gagged, so Ms. Klugh repeated Kate’s revelation, saying, “She says she knows your beard’s fake, Tom.” An irritated Tom removed his beard, and says sarcastically, “Thanks for telling them my name, Bea.” (“Live Together, Die Alone, Part 2”)
3×11 – Enter 77
Kate and Sayid entered the basement of the Flame searching for other “hostiles” who may have been present there along with Mikhail Bakunin. Upon entering the basement, Sayid and Kate spread out and while Kate was searching through a rack of DHARMA Initiative uniforms, Beatrice leaped out and pounced on her. After a short scuffle, in which Beatrice had the upperhand, Sayid arrived, stopped the fight and held her at gunpoint.
After Kate recovered from the ambush, she recognized Beatrice from Pala Ferry as one of the Others who had been involved in her kidnapping and with this realization proceeded to punch her twice in the face. After this, Sayid and Kate ascended to the upper level of the Flame with Beatrice as a hostage. They came upon Mikhail, who was holding Locke as a hostage and during the confrontation, Beatrice and Mikhail began shouting to each other in Russian.
–“Beatrice: “We can’t risk it, you know the rules.”
–Mikhail: “There’s still a way out.”
–Beatrice: “We won’t let them into the territory. You know what to do. It is an order.”
–Beatrice: “(English) Just do it, Mikhail!”
(Mikhail takes aim at Beatrice)
–Mikhail: “(Russian) Forgive me”
(Mikhail shoots Beatrice)” (“Enter 77”)

(Khensyt, Khensit) Khensut is prominent in the ancient city of Per-Soped (Saft el-Henneh) as the consort of its primary God, Soped. She is apparently mentioned in utterance 301 of the Pyramid Texts, an address to the rising sun, in which it is said, “You [the sun] shall raise up the king’s ka [vitality, spirit-double] for him at his side, even as this khensut-wig of yours mounted up to you.” Some have disputed a reference to the Goddess in this reference to a type of hairstyle or wig, but it would accord with other existing references to Khensut in which she is associated with the royal diadem: “Khensut who is upon the head of Re, great of decisions as Judge,” (Barguet 1950, 3). At Saft el-Henneh she is similarly “Khensut who is upon the head of Soped,” (ibid.). In an inscription from the temple of Horus at Edfu, it appears that Khensut is associated with the two plumes on Soped’s headdress, for in a passage concerning the “consecration of the double-plume” it states, “O Horus, your two eyes are given to you so that you are provided with them, O Soped, provided with your Khensut,” (ibid., 4). A reference to Khensut has also been alleged in CT spells 137 and 142 (again disputed), in which she is responsible for a decree reuniting the deceased with his/her family; in the similar CT spell 134, which does not mention her by name, she is perhaps referred to as “mistress of the crowns/ornaments” (nebet khâu; alternately, “lady of appearances,” i.e., when the king appears on the throne or in procession, from the verb khâi, ‘to rise [like the sun]‘, in which regard note Soped’s identification with the east and the rising sun). In her apparent association with the executive acts, so to speak, which give order to the cosmos and secure justice for mortals, Khensut may be said to battle Seth: “Khensut the Great seizes you [Seth], her flame has power over your body,” (Barguet 1950, 5). Khensut is depicted anthropomorphically, usually in the manner of Hathor, with the headdress of a solar disk between bovine horns, or sometimes wearing the plume of Ma’et.
In Egyptian mythology, Chensit (also spelled Khensit), which means placenta, was the patron goddess of the twentieth nome of Lower Egypt. Chensit was the wife of Sopdu and the daughter of Ra, and was depicted as an uraeus.
