Answered: Exodus, the 23rd Psalm, The Cost of Living, Left Behind, LA X, Across the Sea, The End (The“monster” was once a human who arrived on the island around two thousand years ago while still in his mother’s womb. His mother, a Roman named Claudia shipwrecked with her people and was found by a woman who had been living on the island for an unknown amount of time. She helped Claudia give birth to twins, the first being Jacob and the second being the unnamed boy who would later become the monster. Thewoman killed Claudia shortly after and raised the twins as her own. She would show Jacob and the Boy in Black the source of the island’s powers, a powerful light within a cave, and tell them that one of them would one day become the protector of the Light. When the Boy learned of the existence of his mother’s people living on the island, he joined them and lived there for years in an attempt toleave the island. While living with them, he became convinced humanity was inherently “greedy, manipulative, untrustworthy, and selfish” but found their curiosity useful, specifically in the wells they dug to access pockets of electromagnetism that naturally existed beneath the island. After telling Mother of his plans to use this energy to leave the island, she filled in the well and killed theentire settlement of people he was living with. Mother made Jacob the Protector before the Man in Black murdered her out of rage, and Jacob in turn beat him and threw him into the Source, reflecting on Mother’s words that entering the Light would be worse than death. The extremely high level of electromagnetism killed the mortal Man in Black and made the living essence of the man he once was thesmoke monster, an immortal shape-shifting entity. For the next two thousand years, Jacob would devote his time to making sure the Man in Black could not leave the island, convinced that his evil nature would corrupt the world.)
