    • Atlas Shrugged: The Kahana's captain could alternatively have been based on a character from Ayn Rand's 1957 novel, Atlas Shrugged.

      The story is about a group of very powerful and important people (in society's eyes, at least) who feel unappreciated, and create a separate utopian world, a "village" hidden from view from people, planes and the world.

      Galt, in the novel, is unseen by the characters through most of the novel, building up their ideas of his actual appearance and personality. Similarly, in Lost, Desmond and Sayid (along with the viewers) are creating the character in their mind before seeing him.
