2010 (DHARMA Logistics Warehouse)
Epilogue – The New Man in Charge
For twenty years, Hector had been working at the DHARMA Logistics Warehouse in Guam with his co-worker, Glenn, organizing and distributing the periodic resupply drop via drones. During a normal day at work, while making sure the supply drops were ready on time, Benjamin Linus entered the warehouse and told them both that 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 Glenn and Hector were given wallets filled with money, and the opportunity to each ask one question before they were to leave the warehouse. Hector questioned about the presence of polar bears on the Island and then Ben showed the two the Hydra Orientation film, after which the three of them left Guam. (“The New Man in Charge”)

Key Episode(s) to Decoding the Character
Aether, in Greek mythology, is one of the Protogenoi, the first-born elemental gods. He is the personification of the upper sky, space, and heaven, and is the elemental god of the “Bright, Glowing, Upper Air.” He is the pure upper air that the gods breathe, as opposed to the normal air (Ἀήρ, aer) mortals breathe.
In Hesiod’s Theogony, he was the son of Erebus and Nyx and brother of Hemera. Both were noted in passing in Cicero’s De Natura deorum, but Hyginus mentioned Chaos as his parent. The aether was also known as Zeus‘ defensive wall, the bound that locked Tartarus from the rest of the cosmos.
Aether had several offspring, but Hyginus seems to confuse him with Uranus when saying that Aether had Uranus by Gaia, his daughter. Aergia, a goddess of sloth and laziness, is the daughter of Aether and Gaia. Hyginus is also our source for telling us that Aether is the father of Uranus and Gaia. But another source tells us that it is just Uranus who is his child. And like Tartaros and Erebos, in Hellas he might have had shrines but no temples and probably no cult either. In the Orphic hymns, he is mentioned as the soul of the world from which all life emanates. Callimachus, in calling Uranus Akmonides, claims him as the son of Akmon, and Eustathius in Alcman tells us that the sons of Uranus were called Akmonidai.
