Glen was one of the last members of the DHARMA Initiative.
2010 (DHARMA Logistics Warehouse)
Epilogue – The New Man in Charge
For twenty years, Glen had been working at the DHARMA Logistics Warehouse in Guam with his co-worker, Hector, organizing and distributing the periodic resupply drop. During a normal day at work, while making sure the supply drops were ready on time, Benjamin Linus entered the warehouse and told them he was shutting down the station.
When asked why, Ben explained that the DHARMA Initiative had been out of operation for years, and that the supply drops were being sent to an island in the middle of the Pacific. Both Glen and Hector received wallets filled with money and the opportunity to each ask one question before they were to leave the warehouse.
Glen questioned the location to which the drops were sent, but when he asked how can an island move, Ben refused to answer. After Hector asked about the presence of polar bears on the Island, Ben showed the two the Hydra Orientation film, after which the three of them left Guam. (“The New Man in Charge”)
Polar Bears (Orchid Station)
Polar bears were brought to the Island by the DHARMA Initiative, who kept them in cages at the Hydra station, on Hydra Island. (The World of the Others) According to Pierre Chang, because polar bears possess keen memory and adaptability instincts, they were prime candidates for studies in electromagnetic research. After training at the Hydra and solving the cage fish biscuit puzzles, the bears were fitted with a tracking collar, tranquilized, and taken to the Orchid where they were put in the familiar cold climate of the Frozen wheel chamber to push the wheel and be transported through space time. (The New Man in Charge) Some of the polar bears survived the Purge, after which they were freed from their cages and swam to the main Island. (Access Granted) After the crash of Oceanic Flight 815 in 2004, survivors of the crash occasionally encountered and were threatened by the bears. Charlotte Lewis discovered the skeleton and tracking collar of one of the experimented polar bears in Tunisia, where the Exit was located, that same year.

Key Episode(s) to Decoding the Character
In Greek mythology, Chronos in pre-Socratic philosophical works is said to be the personification of time. His name in Modern Greek also means “year” and is alternatively spelled Chronus (Latin spelling).
Chronos was imagined as an incorporeal god. Serpentine in form, with three heads—that of a man, a bull, and a lion. He and his consort, serpentine Ananke (Inevitability), circled the primal world-egg in their coils and split it apart to form the ordered universe of earth, sea and sky. He is not to be confused with the Titan Cronus.
He was depicted in Greco-Roman mosaics as a man turning the Zodiac Wheel. Often the figure is named Aeon (Eternal Time), a common alternate name for the god.
Chronos is usually portrayed through an old, wise man with a long, gray beard, such as “Father Time”. Some of the current English words whose etymological root is khronos/chronos include chronology, chronometer, chronic, anachronism, and chronicle.
In the Orphic cosmogony the unageing Chronos produced Aither and Chaos, and made a silvery egg in the divine Aither. It produced the bisexual god Phanes, who gave birth to the first generation of gods and is the ultimate creator of the cosmos.
Pherecydes of Syros in his lost Heptamychos (the seven recesses), around 6th century BC, claimed that there were three eternal principles: Chronos, Zas (Zeus) and Chthonie (the chthonic). The semen of Chronos was placed in the recesses and produced the first generation of gods.
