[[folder: Other Characters]]

!!Anthony Cooper
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mr_Sawyer_1852.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:350:''"Little hot for heaven, isn't it?"'']]
->'''Played By:''' Kevin Tighe

->''"A conman goes by many names, friend."''

John Locke's biological father. Cooper was shown to have used the alias of Adam Seward, and he claimed to have used Tom Sawyer, Ted MacLaren, Louis Jackson and Paul, among others. He was, by his own admission, a con man. As "Tom Sawyer", he seduced James Ford's mother, Mary Ford and then used her in order to swindle money from her and her husband, which resulted in the death of both. This prompted James to take on the alias "Sawyer", and to hunt down his namesake.
----
* ArchnemesisDad: To Locke. He abandons him, steals his kidney, abandons him again, destroys Locke's romantic relationship with Helen (albeit not on purpose) and eventually tries to kill him.
* AssholeVictim: Go on, it's okay to admit you cheered when Sawyer strangled him with a chain.
* {{Badass}}: The son of a bitch deserves some props. He's never scared, fearlessly taunting Sawyer and Locke when they're just about to kill him. He never begs for his life.
** BadassGrandpa
* BitchInSheepsClothing
* CardCarryingVillain: He's a charming, manipulative liar...but when he drops the charade, he's refreshingly up-front about being a selfish, sociopathic sub-human monster.
* ConMan: His trade.
* CreateYourOwnVillain: By conning Sawyer's parents and causing their deaths by proxy, he sets Sawyer on a path of vengeance which eventually leads right to him.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DefiantToTheEnd: Even as he realizes that Sawyer means to kill him, he remains cruel and taunting.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Don't let his polite facade fool you for a second. Beneath it lies an utterly unrepentant, sociopathic monster who cares not one bit about the innumerable lives he has destroyed.
* IHaveManyNames: We don't know his real name, Anthony Cooper is just one of his many aliases.
* ItsAllAboutMe: If he seems like he cares about you or likes you at all, its only because you are useful to him in some way.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk
* KarmicDeath: A ''very'' well deserved strangling at Sawyer's hand.
* ManipulativeBastard: He's made an entire career out of playing with people's emotions and motivations.
* PlayingGertrude: Kevin Tighe is only a few years older than his on-screen son, TerryOquinn.
* SmugSmiler: See the picture; he has a big happy smile, usually whenever he's gotten away with something monstrous.
* TheSociopath: Good God, is he an example of this trope!

!!Dan Norton
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/DanNorton_922.jpg]]
->'''Played By:''' Tom Irwin

An attorney working for the Agostini & Norton law firm, and Benjamin Linus's lawyer.
----
* AmoralAttorney: He doesn't do anything really illegal, but has no qualms harassing Kate so she'll be pushed into returning to the island.
* FauxAffablyEvil
* PunchClockVillain: He's only doing a job for Ben.
* SmugSmiler: Always seen with a big grin on his satisfied face.
* SmugSnake

->'''Played By:''' Michelle Forbes

A public relations representative of Oceanic Airlines.
----
* TheCameo: For Science Fiction mainstay, Michelle Forbes.

[[caption-width-right:225:He'll be safe with me.]]
->'''Played By:''' Mary Mara

A butcher who worked in Simon's Butcher Shop in Los Angeles and apparently worked for Ben. She watched Locke's body for Ben while he was out collecting the rest of the Oceanic Six together to return to the Island.
-----
* [[AlmightyJanitor Almighty Butcher]]: Poses as a butcher, but she's actually a trusted member of the Others who uses the store as a front.
* BoyishShortHair
* EnigmaticMinion: We know very little about her, but she shows herself to be one of Ben's most trusted off-island minions (and the list of people Ben trusts is very short).

[[folder: Flash-sideways Characters]]

!!David Shephard
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shepherd_david_5808.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:350:''"I didn't want you to see me fail."'']]
->'''Played By:''' Dylan Minnette

The son of Jack Shepherd and Juliet Burke in the flash-sideways. He is a piano-playing prodigy but has a difficult relationship with his father.
----
* DeadpanSnarker
* NotSoDifferent: From Jack when he was a child, craving the approval of a distant father figure.
* TeenGenius: He's a piano-playing prodigy.
* WellDoneSonGuy: See NotSoDifferent. Unlike Jack, however, he's had his father's approval all along. He just didn't realize it.

!!Principal Donald 'Don' Reynolds
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/DonReynolds_9742.jpg]]
->'''Played By:''' William Atherton

The principal of the Washington Tustin High School, at which Dr. Benjamin Linus and Leslie Arzt worked in the flash-sideways timeline and where John Locke also appeared as a substitute teacher. Reynolds seemed to have a chilly relationship with Dr. Linus, dismissing the importance of the "History Club" that Ben ran and forcing Ben to oversee afternoon detentions instead.
----
* TheBully: He pushes Ben around, dismissing him at every turn.
* {{Jerkass}}: Frequently belittles and insults Ben. He even threatens to destroy Alex's future academic career for something she had nothing to do with.
* KarmaHoudini: He doesn't get much in the way of comeuppance for his adultery, bullying and abuse of power, save for having to give Alex a very positive letter of recommendation.
* SmugSnake: Very confident in his abilities.
* YourCheatingHeart: Despite being married, he's carrying on an affair with the school nurse.
