Characters

Henry Townshend

Age: 28
Not much is known about our hero, Henry Townshend, and he is evidently a quiet person. Henry lives in Room 302 of South Ashfield Heights, and he has short-medium lengthed brown hair and green eyes. Henry's occupation is unknown and nothing indicates that he even has a job. Henry used to visit Silent Hill often when he was younger, and also enjoys photography – he has some personal photos of Silent Hill in his bedroom, which he comments on. During conversations with other people, it is revealed that Henry is somewhat of a shy person, but he is a serious guy. Henry is very confused at what's happening to him, and many times, the only thing he can come to say is, "What...the...hell...?".

Eileen Galvin

Age: Mid 20s
Eileen is Henry's nextdoor neighbour, the occupant of Room 303 of South Ashfield Heights. Eileen has brown hair and green eyes. Although Eileen is Henry's next door neighbour, she only knows has name and face, and vice versa. They know each other from passing acquaintances, and that's about it. Not much appears to be happening in Eileen's life and she spends most of her time at home in her apartment, watching TV and cleaning. Eileen tends to have bad luck often, and she also doesn't mind going to parties, so there may be a wild side to her.
