Jacob the Leader
(The Actor: Mark Pellegrino)
Episode Appearances: "The Incident" (also indirectly seen in "The Man Behind the Curtain" and "The Beginning of the End")
Hails from: Unknown
Who he is: Jacob is a mysterious person who is the leader of the Others. He has the ability to never age, as he has been on the Island since at least the 19th century. While it is not known when or where he was born, he is able to travel on and off the Island. He met with various survivors of Flight 815 and Flight 316 before those planes crashed. He lives inside the statue, but sometimes resides inside a cabin. He was killed by Ben and his nemesis, posed as Locke. His final words were "they're coming".
The figure seen in the cabin.
Locke's first encounter with Jacob was when Ben took him to Jacob's cabin. Ben began talking to a chair, but it was empty. Locke, unconvinced, began to leave, but heard the words "help me". Locke turns around, turns on the flashlight, and the cabin begins shaking. Ben is thrown to the wall, and a shadowy figure is briefly seen in the chair. Later, Ben claimed that he has never seen Jacob, and everything that happened in the cabin was fake.
Jacob warns that "they're coming".
Off Island: During various times, Jacob has left the island to visit future survivors of Flight 815 and Flight 316. The earliest known meeting was between Jacob and Sawyer. After the funeral of Sawyer's parents, Jacob gave Sawyer a pen so he could write his letter to the real Tom Sawyer, Anthony Cooper.
Jacob touches Kate's nose .
Jack had just finished his first major surgery, but was embarrassed by his father in the middle of the operation after there was an accident. To find relief, he attempted to buy an Apollo Candy Bar from the vending machine. However, it became stuck, and Jack was unable to get it. Jacob purchased a candy bar, causing both to fall out. He gave it to Jack, telling him that it just needed an extra push.
Jacob "resurrects" Locke after he was pushed out of the eighth story window.
Jacob is sitting on a bench, reading Everything That Rises Must Converge by Flannery O'Conner. At this time, Locke is pushed out of an eighth floor window by Anthony Cooper, and hits the ground below. Jacob walks to the unconscious (and seemingly dead) Locke, and touches his shoulder. Locke regains consciousness, and Jacob tells Locke that he is "sorry this happened" to him and that "everything's going to be alright".
Sayid and Nadia were walking in Los Angeles, talking about what they should do for their annerversry. At an intersection, Jacob stops Sayid asking for directions. Nadia crosses the street, and while in the intersection, she finds her sunglasses. Seconds later a car runs her over. The car continue to drive, leaving Nadia for dead. Sayid runs to her, helpless. Nadia asks for one request: "take me home", and dies.
A day before the departure of Flight 316, Hurley is released from jail. He enters a taxi, but Jacob is already inside. Jacob says that it is fine for him to come in too. Hurley assumes that he was in prison as well, but says he was not. Hurley then believes that Jacob had died, but he assures him he is alive. Hurley says that he is cursed, but Jacob contradicts this, saying that he is "blessed". He then tells him that he should take Ajira Airways Flight 316, but it is his choice. He leaves the taxi. Hurley tells him that he forgot his guitar, but he says it is not his.

You speak about Jacob - the person by this point in Lost can only be one person, and that is Esau. Their father was Isaac, who I believe is Richard. (Maybe not Richard, but I believe he is. Who else has not aged?)

I don't think he liked Ben as the leader of his people, and so he ignored him, anyone else get this feeling? I don't know, I just don't think he liked him very much...

Maybe, Jacob is a manefestation of the Island. Ben showed a connection with the Island when he saw his dead mother and Locke can now walk and seems to have a special bond with the Island. Locke is stil in the process of regaining his faith in the Island, so there for he didn't see Jacob, only heard him.

Jacob or Jacob Deyer was one of the crewmen on board the Black Rock, the captain was a man named Magnus Hanso and get this his 1st mate and 2nd mate were (drum roll).........Alexander Widmore and Clifford Widmore.
What's interesting here is that with Alexander Widmore, Clifford Widmore and Charles Widmore share the same surname as well does Magnus and Alvor Hanso. But we only know Jacob's first name and the fact that it could be him from the Black Rock suggests that when you're on the island, time stops and you don't age, hense why women can't get pregnant on the island and why Richard Alpert appears not to age. This could be why Aaron is special for he was born on the island and appears to grow like any normal child would.
Another theory suggests that all four form the Black Rock stayed on the island to sustain immortality and changed their first names once they got off the island in which Jacob stayed on the island.
Now Alexander Widmore or Clifford Widmore may have gotten off the island by moving it thus being expelled never to return. He could have changed his first name to keep the island a secret as well as Magnus/Alvor Hanso and ever since then they have been trying to get back to the island and claim it.
