A murder case that Harry was
involved in twelve years ago?
| After the first game, Harry lived an
ordinary life in Portland with his daughter. Twelve years ago
however, the religious organization, which had regained influence,
formulated a plan to abduct the young girl who had been
reincarnated. This ended in Harry killing a cult member. Thereafter,
in order to hide from the cult Cheryl was called by the assumed name
"Heather" and her black hair was dyed blond.
||The "murder case of twelve years
ago" is mentioned in Douglas' notebook, but it doesn't relate all
the particulars of the case.
Heather is awakened by the
religious organization = Alessa's abilities
Heather, the protagonist of Silent Hill 3, is the reincarnation of the two young
girls who appeared in Silent Hill, Alessa and Cheryl. This girl, who carries God
inside her body as a result of the ritual that Dahlia once
conducted, assumed an alias and dyed her hair to conceal her whereabouts.
However, seventeen years later, because her body had matured enough for her to
take on the role of the mother, her existence was perceived by the religious
One can think that Vincent's line, "the time has come" also signifies the fact
that Heather's body has matured as the mother of God.
Additionally, Heather's abilities as the mother of God are awakened as she
regains her past memories in the game, and a premonition of this is already
apparent even in the bad dream that immediately follows the opening. What
becomes the scene of the beginning of her nightmare is the amusement park that
also appears in the latter half of the game. One can think that Heather is
endowed with precognitive abilities and that this dream was a warning that she
sent to herself.
At the beginning of the game, the
scene at the amusement park is a "premonitory dream." It warns of the
danger that is imminent in Heather's future.
Heather's age varies depending on
The voice on the phone from the
hospital locker blesses Heather for being 24 and 31 years old. If
one adds her 7 years as Cheryl to Heather's true age of 17, her age
becomes 24, and if one adds her 7 years as Alessa, her age becomes
14, the first number, is the period
before Alessa returned to a single existence in the first game, 7 is
the period before Cheryl returned to a single existence, and 17
indicates the length of time Heather was alive after the two girls
returned to a single existence.
The results of the investigation
conducted by Douglas, the private detective, identified Heather's
registered age as 24. One can infer that Harry raised Heather as the
child he found 7 years before the first game-- in other words, that
he raised her as Cheryl.
The true nature of the voice's owner is shrouded in mystery.
A puzzling numerical formula is written on the birthday card in the
