Sayid Hassan Jarrah (Arabic:سعيد جراح) is a middle section survivor of Oceanic Flight 815 and was a passenger aboard Ajira Flight 316 although it's unknown whether he survived the crash. A courageous man and a competent leader, Sayid maintains a conservative manner which reflects both strength and spirituality, and tries to atone for the demons in his past. Sayid spent much of his adult life searching for his childhood-love, Nadia, hoping she is alive. Sayid's past as a torturer constantly plagues him. Through his skills and leadership, he plays a key role in the survival of his group, and exploring the Island's secrets. One of the most trusted of survivors, he helped secure rescue of multiple people on the freighter. However, as the conflict between the survivors and the freighters began, he was one of the people who managed to escape on the remaining helicopter with the rest of the Oceanic Six, Desmond Hume and Frank Lapidus. Sayid was re-united with Nadia when he returned to the mainland for eight months, marrying his one true love. However, his happiness was short-lived when Nadia was allegedly targeted by Charles Widmore for unknown reasons. As a direct result of this, he joined Benjamin Linus in his war against Widmore for two years, working as a hitman to avenge his wife's death. He later left Ben's employ under an as yet unknown set of circumstances. He was recently arrested under unknown circumstances, and was on the crash of Ajira Airways Flight 316.
