XX : Judgement

Red Pyramid Thing

Manifested by James' subconscious, it takes the form of an executioner of times past

   The creature known as "Pyramid Head" that appears in Silent Hill 2 leaves behind a great number of mysteries and has evoked a great response from players. Let's formally dispose of those mysteries.
   Originally, the pyramid head outfit was the guise of Silent Hill's executioners. Three years ago when James visited this town, that figure overlapped with his own feelings of guilt, and then later appears as a representation of his desire for punishment in the otherworld created by his subconscious.

Pyramid Head persists in tormenting not only James himself, but Maria as well.

Pyramid Head wounds Maria again and again to reiterate the actuality of Mary's death and wake James from his delusion. In other words, something in the depths of James' consciousness is trying to force him to remember his crime.

Was the "red devil" that Walter Sullivan saw...?

   Walter Sullivan murdered a young boy and his sister, and then took his own life. The connection between the "red devil" he saw and Pyramid Head has become a topic of discussion among players. However, Pyramid Head is only a representation of James' need for punishment. No one besides Sullivan himself can really know what he saw.

Valtiel is the being that Pyramid Head is modeled after. His form is also seen differently depending on the person.
Sullivan says that he saw a "red devil." What was it that he saw?
