Dina Skrumbis was an archivist working with the Peabody Museum at Yale University. In the Lost World novel, she faxed Dr. Richard Levine a message, indicating that the document he requested, “Geschichtliche Forschungsarbeiten über die Geologie Zentralamerikas, 1922-1929“, had been sent by Federal Express (FedEx) that day, ending with a thank you and her signature. Dr. Thorne tells Kelly that the document means something like “Something Researches on the Geology of Central America.”
In reality, the title translates to “Historical Research on the Geology of Central America”.

InGen Scientist on Isla Sorna Site B
Rossiter was head of the Biosyn Corporation after the Isla Nublar Incident, replacing Steingarten. He had taken a dislike to the company’s head researcher Lewis Dodgson due to his reckless style and often-illegal methods, although he was aware of the fact that due to his ruthless nature he was able to generate results and effectively compete with other genetics companies. Despite his apparent exasperation with Dodgson’s failure to acquire InGen’s dinosaur embryos the last time he had attempted to, Rossiter eventually authorised Dodgson’s expedition to Isla Sorna during their meeting at Biosyn’s Animal Testing Facility.

Costa Rican (possible airline official?)
Chef of the world-famous Le Beaumaniere in France; scheduled to run Les Gigantes on Isla Nublar.
Ramón was one of the maintenance workers who helped Robert Muldoon repair the fencing during the cleanup operation on Isla Nublar. While repairing the cutout near the jungle river, he was the only one to point out some lights in the jungle to the east, claiming they looked like headlights.
In fact, they were headlights, belonging to the Jeep which Denis Nedry had used to try to get the embryos to the East Dock, although Muldoon simply thought it was some fencing lights, and Ramón and the other workers were told to hurry up and finish repairing the fence when calls from the Park’s Dilophosaurus wetherilli “venenifer” drifted their way. His fate is unknown after this scene, although it is thought that he made it out alive before the Costa Rican Air Force fire-bombed Isla Nublar several hours later.

A Haitian serving girl that is well known for her ginger ice cream. She is seen serving the ice cream to John Hammond and Dr. Henry Wu in Hammond’s bungalow. This is while Hammond and Henry are discussing the problem Hammond has of not seeing the children of the world enjoying Jurassic Park.
The field assistant to Dr. Sarah Harding, she is a native African and often accompanied Dr. Harding in night-time research observations. During the summer of 1995, Makena assisted Dr. Harding during one such of these observations on the Savannah of Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, as Dr. Harding documented a pack of hyenas hunting. When Harding attempted to get closer to the pack, Makena protested, cautioning Dr. Harding of the unwise action.
A Lab Technician at the Tropical Diseases Laboratory at Columbia University Medical Center. She was said to have had a wild imagination; and, upon seeing Tina Bowman‘s sketch of a Procompsognathus she told the doctors that it was a dinosaur. Since she couldn’t convince them, she faxed an x-ray of the animal to Dr. Alan Grant, apparently hoping he could tip the scales.

Barney Fellows worked at Symbolics near the Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts. When computer programmer Dennis Nedry was contracted by InGen to build a park control program that required 3 Billion fields of data records, Nedry consulted with Fellows to discuss why a company would require the use of so much data. Unfortunately, all Nedry could find out was that InGen was working with DNA sequencing, as Nedry could not give very much information due to being under a nondisclosure agreement.
Captain of the Anne B, a ship that made routine supply runs to Isla Nublar and possibly Isla Sorna. After at least three escaped Velociraptors were seen stowing away on the stern of the ship by Lex Murphy and Dr. Alan Grant, Freddie Farrell was contacted by Tim Murphy and Donald Gennaro, who urged him to cancel his dock at Puntarenas for safety reasons. Although hesitant at first due to Tim’s youthfulness, Farrell eventually complied after Gennaro “threatened” him with made-up legal action.
Ed James was a Biosyn agent hired by Lewis Dodgson to shadow all the individuals involved in the Isla Nublar Incident. However, he failed to notice that Kelly Curtis and Arby Benton were aiding Richard Levine in his research for the Isla Sorna Expedition. Levine seemed to have some knowledge of James’s surveillance, although whether he grasped who James worked for is unclear. His methods of surveillance were borderline illegal, including planting bugs in Levine’s apartment.

At some point in time, Alan Grant got married to an unidentified person, but died later. It is unknown of her cause of death, and she is only mentioned once by Dr. Grant while talking to Tim as they tried to make their way to the Visitor Center.
“Are you divorced?” “No,” Grant said. My wife died a long time ago.” Quote found in the Jurassic Park novel: Fourth Iteration – In The Park (page 235 paperback edition)
Donald Gennaro‘s wife, and Amanda Gennaro‘s mother. In 1989, she invited twenty children over for her daughter’s birthday party, which also featured a magician and “Cappy the Clown” for entertainment. Elizabeth had not been happy to learn that Donald had to miss their daughter’s birthday party to attend an inspection of the Isla Nublar facility.
The daughter of Donald and Elizabeth Gennaro, Amanda was to turn either four or five years old during the weekend of the Isla Nublar Incident in 1989. The party, which would host twenty children of Amanda’s age, was to feature a magician and a clown by the name of “Cappy“. Amanda had not been very happy to learn that her father would be missing her birthday party.
Head of research at the San Francisco Zoo research laboratory. She was taking care of a snow leopard name Dorje when Dr. Ian Malcolm went to visit her to check her results on the skin sample. She was aware of the unknown creatures washing up shore, and told Malcolm that his material had gained a lot of interest. She had taken close up, microscopic images and then presented Malcolm with a total of four slides in a small conference room. She mentioned that the pigment cells suggested the ability to change skin color like a chameleon. She noticed and asked Malcolm about Site B found on the tag. When Malcolm denied any knowledge, she knew better but did not push him much further. Right before Malcolm left, Elizabeth asked him how the animal died, because they also found foreign skills, indicative of a fight.
“And you should also know there were signs of chronic vasoconstriction in the arterial vessels. This animal was under stress, Ian. And not just from the fight that wounded it. That would have disappeared in early postmortem changes. I’m talking about chronic, continuous stress. Wherever this creature lived, its environment was extremely stressful and dangerous.” Quote found in the First Configuration- Tag: The Lost World novel. (page 60 in the paperback edition)
A cousin of Diego, he was a Costa Rican fisherman who lived in Puerto Cortes. Gondoca, along with his cousin Diego, had visited Isla Sorna when they were younger, likely before InGen owned the island. In 1995, Dr. Lewis Dodgson chartered his boat for a mission to Isla Sorna. When Dodgson or any of his acquaintances did not return to the boat in the time they were allotted, Gondoca ordered his crewmen to leave the island without Dodgson.
Hall monitor that doesn’t pay attention at Woodside Junior High School, the school to where Kelly Curtis and Arby Benton attended.
“She swept past the girls, ignoring them. Nearby she saw Miss Enders, the hall monitor, paying no attention as usual.

Emily is Kelly‘s sister, who left to study nursing at the community college. Kelly even wore Emily’s old clothes from Kmart, even her old Reeboks shoes.
Dieguito, also known as Diego, was Richard Levine‘s guide when he visited Isla Sorna, and was Gandoca‘s cousin. Diego seemed to be superstitious of the island, like most of the locals, and was unaware of the true nature of the island’s wildlife: he believed that only birds lived there, having visited the island a few times in the past, and did not know that InGen had left cloned dinosaurs behind on the island. He was also rather inattentive, ignoring Levine’s instructions about safety and nondisturbance on the island, trying to smoke a cigarette even after Levine had clearly instructed him not to. Shortly thereafter, Diego was killed by a Carnotaurus during an ambush by the riverbank while he and Levine were busy admiring a Mussaurus.
