Mebi oso na hit choda op nodotaim. (May we meet again)
— Lincoln's last words to Octavia Blake [src]

Lincoln was a major character in the second and third seasons, after initially appearing as a recurring character in the first season. He was portrayed by starring cast member Ricky Whittle and debuted in "Twilight's Last Gleaming".

Lincoln was a Trikru warrior who rescued Octavia Blake. The pair develop romantic feelings, and Lincoln helped the Delinquents multiple times, causing him to be viewed as a traitor to his people. He later was captured by the Mountain Men, and forced to become a Reaper, but with Delinquents and Octavia's assistance, he was rescued and overcame his addiction to RED, the drug used to create the Reapers.

After the fall of the Mountain Men, Lincoln resided in Arkadia, because the Commander placed a kill order on his head. After Charles Pike became Arkadia's new Chancellor, Lincoln was placed into lockup, as Pike saw all Grounders as enemies to the Sky People. Pike ordered his execution, as well as Kane's and Sinclair's. Kane and Sinclair escaped, but Lincoln remained behind when Pike threatened to kill the rest of the Grounders he had locked up. Pike executed Lincoln by shooting him in the head, leaving his body behind in a puddle of mud. Octavia later returned to Arkadia and was able to give him a proper Trikru farewell. Lincoln was avenged when Octavia killed Pike in "Perverse Instantiation (Part 2)", after A.L.I.E.'s defeat.

Early life[]

Lincoln was a warrior from Trikru. In his youth, he saw a small dropship come to Earth from The Ark. He found a badly injured man inside but because he couldn't speak English yet, he couldn't ask the man what was wrong. He brought the man food and water for three days before finally telling his father. Lincoln was then made to kill the man by his father and was told that the world has always been trying to turn him into a monster.

According to Indra, Lincoln has always questioned the ways of Trikru. At some point, Lincoln met Luna of the Boat People on his travels.[1]

Throughout the Series[]

In Twilight's Last Gleaming, as Octavia wanders into the woods, she falls down a steep hill and knocks herself out. When she wakes up, she sees Lincoln staring down at her.


Lincoln carries Octavia back to his cave

In His Sister's Keeper, Lincoln brings Octavia back to his cave and proceeds to seal her leg wound shut and leaves again. The next morning, Octavia escapes his cave and is running through the woods belonging to the Grounders. Lincoln catches her and holds her still to save her from being killed by the other Grounders who kill Roma Bragg instead. As he carries her back to his cave, she pleads with him to help her brother who is also out there. He chains her up so she won't escape again and heads back out. When Bellamy Blake, Zoe Monroe, Finn Collins, and Jasper Jordan are under attack by the hostile Grounders, Lincoln sounds a horn to falsely warn the Grounders of an incoming Acid Fog. He returns to the cave and is about to unlock Octavia's chains when she knocks him out with a rock. He awakens to see that the delinquents had followed him back to his cave and were now planning to kill him, but Octavia defends him. When Finn takes his horn, Lincoln stabs Finn in the chest. He then goes after Bellamy and is about to stab him in the neck when Octavia distracts him, allowing Jasper to knock him out again.

In Contents Under Pressure, Lincoln is carried into the drop ship by Bellamy and two other Delinquents. He is tied up and brutally interrogated even as Octavia Blake tries to stop it from happening. His bag is looked through and a collection of vials and a journal are found. The journal shows he's been spying on the Delinquents and has taken a particular fancy to Octavia. Clarke Griffin soon realizes that the blade Lincoln had stabbed Finn with was poisoned and she and Bellamy escalate the torture as they try to get Lincoln to reveal the antidote. After Raven Reyes begins to electrocute him, Octavia intervenes and cuts herself with the poisonous knife because she knows he won't let her die. Lincoln helps Octavia find the correct antidote to save her (and Finn). Later on, Clarke tries to clean his wounds but he sees Octavia enter the room and refuses to let Clarke do so. Octavia walks over to help and he allows her to clean up his wounds. After Clarke leaves, he then speaks for the first time, thanking Octavia for helping him.

She cuts Lincoln down and helps him get dressed. As he is leaving, he turns back and kisses Octavia passionately before sneaking out of the drop ship. Once outside, though, Finn sees him and the two stare at each other briefly before Finn gestures for him to leave the camp. Lincoln then runs into the shadows of the nearby woods.

Peace meeting on the bridge

In Unity Day, Octavia leaves camp to meet up with Lincoln, who has left her white flowers along the way to his cave. She tries to sneak up on him since he has been training her to be a warrior. He tells her she is getting better and they kiss and have sex. Afterward, as Lincoln helps Octavia back out of his cave, Finn suddenly appears, brandishing the blade that Lincoln had stabbed him with. Finn suggests forming a truce between the Grounders and the Delinquents and Lincoln agrees. The three arrange a meeting between his leader (Anya) and Clarke. Later, at the bridge where the meeting is taking place, Lincoln stands beside Octavia and Finn. When Jasper spots grounders in the trees, he opens fire at them and Anya's accomplices shoot arrows back at the delinquents.

I Am Become Death 083 (Lincoln and Octavia)

Lincoln asks Octavia to leave with him

In I Am Become Death, Lincoln leaves a white flower outside the Camp to get Octavia out of camp before Murphy showed up, carrying hemorrhagic fever. Octavia sees the flower but ends up being the one to find Murphy. Later, after the disease is sweeping through the camp, Clarke sends her to Lincoln to find out if there is a cure. Lincoln is glad to see that she is one of the "strong ones" and did not contract the fever. He states there is no cure and that Anya uses the virus to weaken their opponents and she's planning to attack the delinquents at dawn. Because of Octavia, his clan now thinks he is a traitor so he is leaving. He also asks Octavia to run away with him across the sea to another clan that would take them both in. She agrees, but first, she has to warn the delinquents of the impending attack. After Bellamy falls sick, however, Octavia returns to Lincoln's cave to tell him that she's going to stay behind with her people.

In The Calm, Anya tells Clarke that it was Lincoln who told her of Clarke's medical expertise.


Lincoln rescues Clarke and Finn

In We Are Grounders (Part 1), Lincoln has decided to stay behind and help the delinquents. He disguises himself as the grounder who is supposed to execute Clarke and takes her away to the signal fire he lit where he reveals that he has also rescued Finn. In order to escape the grounders chasing after them, Lincoln leads the two into a set of mine tunnels inhabited by Reapers. He is shot by an arrow in his side and Clarke assists him with his injury. While she's pushing the arrow through, Finn asks him why he is helping the delinquents. Lincoln tells them it is because he does not agree with what the grounders are doing to them. When they stumble upon a Reaper dinner party in the mines, Lincoln gets their attention by killing one and then he leads the rest of the reapers away down a tunnel so Clarke and Finn can safely traverse through another tunnel that leads to the camp.

In We Are Grounders (Part 2), Finn shows up at Lincoln's cave, looking for medicine for an injured Raven. Lincoln had just barely escaped the Reapers and Finn takes Bellamy's idea of using the Reapers to help them fight the Grounders. Lincoln and Finn then round up the Reapers and get them to chase them back to the drop ship where the Grounders are getting ready to fight the Delinquents. While the Grounders and the Reapers are fighting each other, Lincoln arrives at the camp. He finds Octavia with an arrow in her leg and, with Bellamy's blessing, takes Octavia away to save her.

Later, Marcus Kane and Abby are talking with Octavia and Lincoln again and ask if Lexa would be willing to accept a deal where the Sky People put Finn on trial instead.

The-100-Season-3-Episode-1-Bellamy & Lincoln

Bellamy gives Lincoln his own uniform

In Wanheda (Part 1), three months after the events at Mount Weather, Lincoln lives in Arkadia where he is engaged with Bellamy in a melee combat demonstration while a group of people, including Monroe and Harper, watch. Lincoln wins the fight and tells them that Bellamy was too aggressive and that is why he lost. Harper comes over with a bag for Lincoln and inside is a Guard's jacket that the Council wants him to have. Lincoln tells him he is Trikru and Bellamy tells everyone that they can make the uniform mean something different down here than it meant up on the Ark. He tells Lincoln that Octavia will eventually understand. Bellamy goes to leave for a mapping mission of Sector 7, which Lincoln says puts them on the Ice Nation border and asks to go along. Bellamy tells him he can’t because of Lexa’s kill order on his head.

Abby, Jackson, and Lincoln come running to the gates of Arkadia as Octavia, Miller, and Raven bring back the injured Jasper. Jackson takes Jasper to Medical as Abby asks Raven about Clarke. Octavia comments negatively on Lincoln wearing the Guard jacket and walks away from him to take care of her horse. Abby helps Raven off her horse because she can’t get down on her own. Raven limps off to take care of her horse on her own.

Abby has called Lincoln to see her in Medical and tells him about her plans to make another trip to Mount Weather for medical supplies. Lincoln warns her that it might start to look like the Skaikru are colonizing the Mountain, which would break the truce. Jasper comes stumbling out of Medical with Jackson chasing after. Jasper claims he is fine as Raven arrives and says he is not fine. Abby lets Jasper go as long as he promises to come back in the morning. She dismisses Lincoln and tells Jackson she will be back in Medical in a minute.

Lincoln approaches Octavia where she is brushing down her horse, Helios, and asks how they are doing in Trigedasleng. Octavia comments that he can still speak it at least. She tells him that he might wear the Guard jacket but he will never be one of the Skaikru. He tells her there cannot be an “us or them” and that Kane and Abby are trying for peace like he is. Octavia thinks they are using Lincoln and tells him she doesn’t want them to live with the Skaikru and wants them to go far away to Luna’s clan. Lincoln says they can’t because Luna is hiding. Octavia starts crying and Lincoln tells her Trikru is in the heart and goes to kiss her but Octavia is too bothered by the jacket and turns away and leaves.

Lincoln no longer wears the guard jacket as he enters his and Octavia’s room in Arkadia but Octavia is not there. He goes out to the forest where she sleeps and brings her a blanket, placing it over her before lying down behind her and wrapping her in his arms.

In Wanheda (Part 2), at Arkadia, Lincoln and Octavia wake up outside the walls and start to make out. A guard shouts from the walls that there is a "fighter" approaching, disrupting them. Octavia is worried because of the Kill Order on Lincoln and they start heading toward the wall. They spot Nyko on horseback, badly injured. He asks for Abby and Lincoln asks him who hurt him. Nyko tells him it was the Ice Nation. Nyko has lost a lot of blood and they bring him to Medical. Jackson types him and it comes up Rhnull. Octavia offers her arm to give blood as a universal donor but her blood won't work. Lincoln then offers his arm and Jackson types him as not a match. Jackson suggests using Mount Weather's medical facility because they have the equipment needed for a blood transfusion to save Nyko. Abby tells him they can't do it but he argues with her that they need to do it to save Nyko's life. Abby asks Lincoln about the supply runs jeopardizing their peace and Lincoln tells Abby to save Nyko.

At Mount Weather, Lincoln, Abby, and Jackson are rushing Nyko to the medical area. Octavia tells Jasper not to do anything stupid before following after them. Later, Abby approaches Lincoln in the old blood treatment room of Mount Weather and tells him Nyko is waking up. Lincoln tells Nyko that taking him to the Mountain was the only way to save him. Nyko thanks Abby for saving his life. Lincoln wants to move Nyko from the Mountain because of all the death the Mountain caused. Nyko tells Lincoln that their people are wrong and places aren't evil; people are. Jackson tells Abby that opening up Mount Weather could do a lot of good for both the Sky People and Trikru. Abby agrees to it.

In Ye Who Enter Here, Kane discusses with Abby their objectives at the summit meeting: lifting Lincoln's kill order, opening trade, and getting Clarke back. Later, Octavia reveals to Bellamy that once the kill order is lifted off Lincoln, they will finally be able to leave.

In Watch the Thrones, Lincoln is at the Mount Weather memorial when Pike's followers are panicking about the Grounder army that is outside the wall. One of Pike's followers, Shawn Gillmer, throws a rock at Lincoln's head, telling him he doesn't belong. Abby tells Lincoln to go medical which he doesn't do at first. He instead goes outside and falls over before saying to himself, "ge smauk daun gyon op nodotaim."

Lincoln is seen in medical getting stitches on his head wound where he emphasizes that he won't be pressing charges. Octavia enters medical and tells Lincoln that now that the kill order is lifted they can finally leave. Lincoln, however, refuses saying the only way the Farm Station survivors will see him as different than other Grounders is if he stays. He then reassures her that everything will pass.

In Hakeldama, Lincoln is first seen angry at Bellamy for killing the army sent to protect them. Bellamy then says that the Trikru are the same as the Ice Nation which greatly upsets Lincoln. Later that day in the medical, Pike arrests the sick grounders since they are a liability. Lincoln is furious since some of them are too sick to even walk or move. When Gillmer goes to restrain he beats him to the ground and Lincoln is placed in lock-up with the sick Grounders.

In Terms and Conditions, Jacapo Sinclair arrives in lock-up he tells Lincoln to get ready for Kane's plan. When Bellamy arrives at the cell, Sinclair requests immunity as the chief engineer and begins to pretend to Bellamy of their plan. Lincoln approaches Sinclair seemingly angry he'd betray the others to save his own skin. He begins beating Sinclair and when Bellamy opens the cell to pull him off a full riot breaks out. This is used to distract the guards while Kane takes Pike to the grounders. However, Monty overhears Kane, Harper, and Miller on the radio and the plan fails since Bellamy reaches the gate before Kane does.

In Stealing Fire, Lincoln is first seen in lock-up when he and Sinclair and sentenced to death alongside Kane. Octavia, however, constructs a plan to free him. Bellamy meets with Octavia at the dropship in order to help her free Lincoln but she instead sedates him and chains him up in a cave. Octavia arrives in Arkadia and begins to put her plan into action. The prisoners are all taken to a room and Pike tells the guards to shoot anyone who comes near. However, the prisoners hide under the floorboards which gives time for the guards to be drugged and for Octavia, Miller, and Abby to get into the room. Harper keeps in radio contact with Octavia and informs her that the exit is not clear, luckily Monty creates a diversion for the guards so the prisoners can escape. Pike, however, catches on and tells the prisoners that there will be an execution today and if they all leave the sick grounders will be killed in their place. Octavia begs for Lincoln to leave with her but he tells her he can't let the grounders die. Octavia says then they'll fight together but Lincoln instead gives her a goodbye kiss before sedating her and handing her to Kane, telling him to take care of her. Lincoln then goes and surrenders himself to Pike. He is brought outside to a puddle of mud and forced to kneel in it as a gun is aimed at his head. Pike asks him if he has any last words but Lincoln says "not for you". He catches sight of Octavia in the distance and tells her "meibi oso na hit choda op nodotaim" (may we meet again), before Pike shoots him the head, killing him instantly.

In Fallen, when the resistance enters the cave Bellamy asks where Lincoln is. Octavia reveals that Pike shot him in the head before she proceeds to beat up her brother.

In Demons, Octavia, Clarke, Jasper, Raven, Sinclair, Bellamy, and Monty return to Arkadia. Octavia finds Lincoln's journal and begins to break down. Jasper tells her it's ok to break down but Octavia tells him that "a warrior doesn't mourn her losses until the war is over." Bellamy later brings Octavia Lincoln's body so she can give him a proper Trikru farewell alongside Sinclair who was murdered by Carl Emerson.

In Join or Die, when Bellamy asks Octavia how long she is going to remain upset with him she says she can't even look at him because when she does, all sees is Lincoln's death.

In Die All, Die Merrily, after Octavia wins the Final Conclave and declares that the Second Dawn Bunker will be shared by all of the clans, Indra states that Lincoln would be proud of her.

In What You Take With You, Octavia experiences a series of hallucinations while using red sun toxin to try to remember what happened to her in the anomaly. As part of these hallucinations, she witnesses Blodreina about to execute Charles Pike as she once did to avenge Lincoln. As Blodreina speaks, Octavia flashes back on Lincoln's execution and realizes that Blodreina is saying the exact same thing that Pike did before he executed Lincoln. Recognizing the monster that she has become, Octavia stops Blodreina from killing Pike.

In Welcome to Bardo, when Levitt scans Octavia's memories with the Disciples' Memory Capture device, Lincoln is amongst the memories shown. As a result, when Levitt sees Octavia's memory of killing Charles Pike in revenge, he cheers.

In A Sort of Homecoming, after finding Octavia praying, Indra asks if Lincoln taught her that. Octavia states that Indra wasn't her only teacher, causing Indra to quip that she was Octavia's best teacher.


Lincoln is very kind, serious and hard working. He generally speaks when spoken to, and even then, he tends to speak as little as possible, choosing to be concise and direct. He is always thinking about survival and his duties to his people, whether it be Arkadia or Trikru. Even under great stress, such as being tortured, finding out his village was attacked, being chased by reapers and attacked without provocation, Lincoln does not express any emotion. He rarely engages in recreation or humor of any sort, as he lets his own work dominate his life. He burdens himself with the well-being of Octavia, the Sky People and Trikru, and always gets involved in major political issues.

Lincoln is a non-conformist, who always questioned the ways of Trikru as he grew up and is willing to risk his own life to do what's right, even if it's against the traditions of his people. His non-conformist views drove him to betray Trikru to help the Delinquents on multiple occasions and disobeying orders in favor of morality and altruism. Being both moral and rational, he seeks peace among his own people and the Sky People in spite of previous armed conflicts that have taken place and soured relations, which shows that he is a visionary who understands what needs to be done to ensure long-term prosperity.

Lincoln is a creative problem solver who engages in thinking in the long term. One example of this is creating a plan that involved attempting to flee to the coast to escape the armed conflict between the delinquents and Woods Clan. Another notable example involves a plan to pretend to be a reaper to infiltrate Mount Weather. He frequently assists Arkadia by providing insight to predict future events related to Arkadia - Coalition relations. Lincoln carries a book, which he uses to document what he sees and make maps.

Physical Appearance[]

Lincoln has brown skin, brown eyes, and a shaved head. He has a lean muscular build and has tribal tattoos on his head, back, chest, and arms.

"Lincoln. I'm Octavia."
- Octavia to Lincoln [src]

Lincoln first met Octavia Blake when she had been injured after falling from a steep hill. He took care of her injuries and he saved her from being found by the other grounders and she thanked him for his help. After her brother, Bellamy, finds her, he takes Lincoln hostage and begins torturing him, much to Octavia's dismay. Octavia frees Lincoln in Day Trip while her brother is gone and the rest of the delinquents are hallucinating from some Jobi nuts. In Unity Day, Lincoln takes an arrow for Octavia, saving her life. He saves her life again in We Are Grounders (Part 2) when he leaves with her in the midst of battle because of the arrow in her leg.

In The 48, Lincoln returns to his village and almost certain death in order to get medicine to treat Octavia's poisoned wound. After he is captured by Reapers, Octavia does not give up hope of finding him, finally succeeding in Fog of War. Octavia then works with Bellamy and Clarke to revert Lincoln back from a Reaper into a Grounder in Long Into an Abyss and continues helping him in his struggle to overcome his addiction to the Reaper red drug in Rubicon. In Blood Must Have Blood (Part 2), Lincoln again picks Octavia over the Grounders and risks the alliance between the Mountain Men and the Grounders in order to go after Octavia at Mount Weather.

After Lincoln's execution by Charles Pike, Octavia kills Pike in revenge at the first chance she gets.

Despite eventually moving on from losing Lincoln and finding others to love, Octavia never forgets him or the lessons he taught her. In "A Sort of Homecoming," when asked by Indra if Lincoln taught her a Grounder prayer, Octavia quips that Indra wasn't her only teacher with humor and not sadness.

"He should be dead."
- Indra to Octavia regarding Lincoln in Inclement Weather.

Indra is Lincoln's chief. She captured Lincoln for helping the enemy (Octavia) while their clan was weak. After Octavia demands a swap for Nyko, Indra's only healer, she agrees to let Lincoln go. When Octavia gets angry that Lincoln is injured, Indra states that Lincoln should be dead, implying that they would have finished the "death by a thousand cuts" punishment for Lincoln since he had betrayed his clan.

Indra continues to view Lincoln as a traitor to his people, even when he digs her out of the rubble after the Tondc bombing and carries her to safety when she is hit by the sniper. After Lincoln returns from killing the sniper, Indra welcomes him back with a handshake and a hug. Later, Octavia tells Indra it meant a lot that she forgave Lincoln. After Lincoln is tied up for not wanting to retreat with the Grounders when Lexa called a truce with the Mountain Men, Indra leaves him a knife so he can free himself and find Octavia.

After Lincoln's death, Indra is shown to be saddened by his loss and to continue to hold him in high regard. In "Die All, Die Merrily," Indra expresses to Octavia how proud Lincoln would be for her actions. In "A Sort of Homecoming," Indra asks if Lincoln taught Octavia the Grounder prayer she is reciting. When Octavia simply states that Indra wasn't her only teacher, Indra quips that she wasn't the only one but she was the best one.


"Lincoln was a good man. He was my brother."
- Nyko to Octavia about Lincoln in Reapercussions.
Nyko is friends with Lincoln. Nyko was willing to help save Octavia and go against his own people even though he could be punished for it in order to help Lincoln. He thinks of Lincoln as a brother and was willing to mercy-kill him when he thought Lincoln had irrevocably turned into a Reaper. Later, after Raven is accused of poisoning Gustus and the Sky People are told to run, Nyko and Lincoln bid farewell.

Finn Collins[]

"And we tortured you. If the two of us can get along, then maybe there's hope. "
- Finn to Lincoln[src]
Finn had been stabbed and poisoned by Lincoln in self-defense. Even when tortured, Lincoln refused to tell the Delinquents the antidote to save him and only did so when Octavia risked her own life by cutting herself with the same poisoned knife used to stab Finn. Eventually the two attempt to work together to bring peace with the Grounders but this ultimately fails and starts a war. After Finn slaughtered Grounder innocents, however, Lincoln wishes to see Lexa's punishment through because Finn had massacred his village.

Lincoln (about Finn): "Fire. Because he killed the innocent, it starts with fire.... They'll take his hands, his tongue, his eyes. And anyone who grieves will have a turn with the knife. At sunrise, the Commander will end it with her sword. But I've never known anyone to survive until the sword. He killed 18, he will suffer the pain of 18 deaths. Then we can have peace."

While Lincoln is escaping with Kane and Octavia. Pike threatens to execute the prisoners that are still being held in lockup.

After turning himself in, Lincoln is brought outside Arkadia by guards for his execution. Before Pike kills him, he tells Lincoln that his people will be cared for. When Pike is telling Lincoln his sentence he asks Lincoln if he has any last words. He replies, "Not for you". As Pike pulls a gun out to kill Lincoln with. Before his death, Lincoln whispers to Octavia, who devastatingly watches from afar, "Mebi oso na hit choda op nodotaim", meaning "May we meet again" in Trigedasleng.
