Silent Hill 4 Memos


Why doesn't u Wake up?



Through the Ritual of the Holy Assumption, he built a world.
It exists in a space separate from the world of our Lord.
More accurately, it is within, yet without the Lord's world.
Unlike the world of our Lord, it is a world in extreme flux.
Unexpected doors or walls, moving floors, odd creatures, a world only him can
Anyone swallowed up by that world will live there for eternity, undying.
They will haunt that realm as a spirit.
How can our Lord forgive such an abomination...?
(This part of the book is too damaged to read.)
...It is important to travel lightly in that world. He who carries too heavy
a burden will regret it...
(The book is too damaged to read any more.)



I'm not sure what that nosy guy meant when he said:
"His home is the orphanage
in the middle. The lake is northwest.
So the opposite is southeast."
The nosy guy said one other thing I
don't understand.
"If you bring the dug-up key,
you can't go back.
Put it away somewhere before
you return there."



The Second Sign
And God said,
Offer the Blood of the Ten Sinners
and the White Oil.
Be then release from the bonds of the flesh, and gain the Power of Heaven.
From the Darkness and Void, bring forth Gloom,
and gird thyself with Despair for the Giver of Wisdom.
The Third Sign
And God said,
Return to the Source through sin's Temptation.
Under the Watchful eye of the demon, wander alone in the formless Chaos.
Only then will the Four Atonement
be in alignment.



Lucky! I finally escaped from the cell.
I decided to take a careful look around this building.
The scariest place was the 1st floor basement. There's a kitchen in the
northeast, but next door in the northwest is a death chamber.
To get in there, you have to punch in the right numbers. I don't know the
numbers, and it was too dark to even see the panel, so I didn't go in.



To get to the surveillance rooms in the middle of this complex, you have to use
the corpse disposal chutes in the cells.
However, on the 1st and 2nd floors, these cells are locked. That's so the kids
wouldn't discover them.
So you have to get to the 1st floor from one of the cells on the 3rd floor. I
know how to do it, but it's really a pain. Also, the lights only work on the
2nd floor.



To turn on the lights in the 3rd floor cells, turn this waterwheel. Remember
that the water must flow in the direction of the waterwheel. Of course, you also
have to open the sluice gate on the roof.



We had beef stew yesterday.
In the cafeteria, I heard there's a death chamber behind the kitchen, and they
take meat straight from the dead people and cook it.
That really scared me.



This place continues to deteriorate.
The doors to a number of cells no longer open. As a result, the kids inside can
no longer go outside. But the less they now about that, the better.
I can't open the doors, but from this room, I can watch them get more and more
emaciated each day. With no food and never showering themselves, they turn into
smelly little grey slumps in there.
Following the suggestion of an engineer, we've disposed of the corpses by
digging a hole below the cells. Since each floor of this building can be rotated
independently, we can dispose of the bodies without the others noticing by
aligning each cell with a body in it vertically.
I bet you're just dying to see the interrogation room behind the kitchen.
I understand your feelings, but have you noticed?
There are three rooms with bloody beds. One is on the 1st floor, one is on the
2nd floor, and one is on the 3rd floor. If you line those three rooms up, then
it's "bingo."



To keep a close eye on the kids,
it's important to keep the cells well lit.
The lights on the 3rd floor were
originally bought as searchlights.
As a precaution against a blackout, they were set up to run on a private
generator. There's a hydroelectric generator in the basement. To light up the
1st and 2nd floors, use the corpse disposal chutes.
Since each floor of this building can be rotated, you can light up any of the
cells by matching up the holes.
Repeating this periodically is an effective way to keep the kids fearful and
if you turn the valve in the middle of this room, you can easily rotate the
cells. You can't rotate the 1st floor, so align the 2nd and 3rd floors with the
1st floor cell that have the blood-stained bed.
By the way, if you're using the peephole in this room, it's easy to make sure
you're doing it right. Give it a try.
Also, please don't forget to open the sluice gate on the roof.
Much appreciated, Chief!



The Secret Number for getting through the door in back of the kitchen this month
is "0302."
Thanks for your cooperation.



(It's stained with blood, and I can't read it...)



The boss said that the number this time is the last 4 digits of this store's
phone number. But the phone number is written right there on the sign on the
roof. Anybody could see it from South Ashfield Street. Is that really okay?



The last few months, Joseph, the guy next door to me who gave me that rare porn
magazine, looks like he's been work super hard.
He said if he found another rare one, he'd give it to me but he hasn't shown his
face around much lately.
He said he was a journalist and he is always investigating stuff.
But I think something strange is going on with him. He's been shut in his
apartment and I can hear all these weird noises coming from there.

July 1 -Mike

Oh my beautiful Rachael,
What's with the note on the red paper?
I thought you'd written a note back to me...
But I guess maybe it was somewhere else...
He took it along with my clothes.
Those were my best clothes.

July 2 -Mike



The red box seems even stranger today.
It's giving off a terrible smell.
It's disgusting, but I just can't throw it away.
It must have been around 30 years ago. That young couple was living in the
apartment, but one day they just suddenly disappeared.
Ran off just like thieves in the night.
I don't know why. It must have been money troubles, or maybe they got themselves
into some kind of danger.
The problem came after that. They left their newborn baby when they took off.
I even found the umbilical cord.
I called the ambulance right away and I heard the baby survived, but I don't
know what happened to him.
Although a few years later, I often saw a young kid hanging around the
One day he just stopped coming by.
But now that I think of it, I'll bet he was that abandoned baby.
It's a horrible story.
Abandoning a newborn baby...
That all happened in Room 302...
And the umbilical cord I found there...
Well, I still can't get myself to throw it away.



Rachael... you...always
protect you...with love,



I lost Eileen Galvin's hospital room key.
She was a patient brought in with severe injuries.
I wonder if I left it in one of the other hospital rooms. I really hope not...



Mommy, I'll give you this so pleez wake up soon.
It's inside my toy train.



Something's here but nothing's here.
I feel something from the well.
Something's missing.
It has begun!!!




Though my body be destroyed,
I will not let you pass here.
To prepare for the Receiver of Wisdom...
I cut my body into five pieces and hid them in the darkness.
When my body is once again whole, the path to below will be opened.
If you are the Receiver of Wisdom, you will understand my words.
The ritual has begun...



"The Descent of the Holy Mother -- The 21 Sacraments"

The First Sign
And God said,
At the time of fullness, cleanse the world with my rage.
Gather forth the White Oil, the Black Cup and the Blood of the Ten Sinners.
Prepare for the Ritual of the Holy Assumption.
The Second Sign
And God said,
Offer the Blood of the Ten Sinners and the White Oil.
Be then release from the bonds of the flesh, and gain the Power of Heaven.
From the Darkness and Void, bring forth Gloom,
and gird thyself with Despair for the Giver of Wisdom.
The Third Sign
And God said,
Return to the Source through sin's Temptation.
Under the Watchful eye of the demon, wander alone in the formless Chaos.
Only then will the Four Atonement's be in alignment.
The Last Sign
And God said, separate from the flesh too, she who is the Mother Reborn and he
who is the Receiver of Wisdom.
If this be done, by the Mystery of the 21 Sacraments, the Mother shall be reborn
and the Nation of Sin shall be redeemed.



My room is on the 2nd floor and I had to drink something with black things in
it. I hid the sword with the triangle handle under my bed. That guy, the fat
one, took the basement key. Next time I'll stick this triangle sword into that
pig and take the key.



I want to go back to that time...
Things were so good then...
The day of my birthday...
The cute cat in the pet store...
All those balls in the basket...
Playing pool was fun too...
The door of time was wide open...
When I see four things,
I can't help but remember that time...



The boss said we had to change our phone number 'cause all of the complaints
about the weird noises. Now we have to change the store sign on the roof. What
a pain.
By the way, the number is the last 4 digits of the new phone number. Not too
smart if you ask me...



I had that weird dream today.
The one with the man with the long hair and coat. He was crying and looking for
his mother again.
I saw that man with the coat 10 years ago at this apartment.
He was going up the stairs, carrying a heavy tool, and old-looking bowl and a
bag that was dripping blood.
I never saw him again after that.
But a few days later, the neighbors complained that they heard strange noises
coming from the supposedly empty Room 302.
So I took a look around Room 302 and found signs that someone had been in there,
but nothing odd other than that.
But that's when it all started.
I still hear strange noises coming from the window of Room 302.




"Crimson Tome"

She who is called the "Holy Mother" be not holy one whit.
The "Descent of the Holy Mother" is naught but the Descent of the Devil.
Those that be called the "21 Sacraments" be not sacramental one whit.
The "21 Sacraments" be naught but the 21 Heresies.
To give birth to a world of wickedness within the blessed realm of our Lord be
blasphemy and the work of the Devil.
If thou would stop the Descent of the Devil, you must bury part of the
Conjurer's mother's flesh within the Conjurer's true body.
Thou must also pierce the Conjurer's flesh with the 8 spears of "Void",
"Darkness", "Gloom", "Despair", "Temptation", "Source", "Watchfulness" and
Do so and the Conjurer's unholy flesh will become that which once it was, by
the grace of our Lord.



There once was a baby and a mother who were connected by a magical cord.
But one day the cord was cut, and the mother went to sleep.
The baby was left all alone.
But the baby made lots of friends at Wish House, and everyone was very nice to
The baby was happy.
His friends told him how to wake up his mother.
So the baby went right away to go and wake her up.
But the mother wouldn't wake up.
No matter how he tried, she wouldn't wake up.
Because the one that he was trying to wake up was actually the Devil.
The baby has been deceived.
Poor baby.
The baby cried and cried and cried.
When he thought of the mother, he remembered the feelings of being connected to
her through the magical cord.
Just then, a ray of light came down from the sky.
The light was very warm and made the baby feel good.
When the baby looked into his hand, he saw that the magical cord was lying
With the cord clutched in his hand, the baby went happily to sleep.



Lately I've been feeling like my life is in serious danger.
I've been through a lot in my life, but I've never felt this kind of pure,
animal fear.
In case something happens to me, I've decided to write down what I've learned
for whoever you are that's living on the apartment now.
I've been investigating the mass murder that took place 7 years ago in which
10 people were killed in 10 days.
They were killed in a variety of ways, but the one thing they had in common
was that each corpse had the following numbers, in order of their deaths,
carved into them:
01121, 02121, 03121,
04121, 05121, 06121,
07121, 08121, 09121,
10121 ... The name of their killer... it was carved in as well...
His name was...Walter Sullivan.

April 4



Although the cult itself is gone, I'm sure the spirit of it is still alive.
There are too many strange things happening in that town.
I'm investigating two people. Or maybe I should say just one. I've just about
discovered what's going on.

April 8



I figured out the riddle behind the numbers.
"01121" is actually "01/21."
In other words, 1 out of 21.
So Walter was planning to kill 21 people...?
But he never finished the job.
He was convicted for the murders of Billy and Miriam Locane, the 7th and 8th
victims. Afterwards, he committed suicide in his jail cell.
The grisly mass murder of 10 people shocked the world and came to be known as
the "Walter Sullivan Case."
There are two big puzzles here.
The first is: What was the motive for the murders?
The second is: Why did he kill himself before completing his task?
Was he simply insane...?

May 2



It was four years ago that they discovered the body with "12/21" carved into it.
Right away I had this terrible feeling and couldn't stop shaking. The victims
had been murdered six months earlier, but Walter had been dead for seven years,
having committed suicide three years before the murder.
The police thinks it's a copycat crime, and are calling it the Sullivan Case
Round Two.
But something about it bothered me...

May 14



I picked up the key that Eileen from Room 303 must have dropped.
I thought I'd return it but she wasn't home. I guess I'll give it to the super.

May 20



I lost the key to Eileen Galvin's room.
I've gotta find it and bring it back.
Let me think... The last place I saw it was...
(It's ripped here and
I can't read the rest)



Oh yeah, I had a really wicked headache that day and just collapsed on the bed.
Maybe if I look near the bed in my room -302's bedroom- I'll find it.
I get headaches every day now.
It's terrible.
What am I going to do?

May 22



Walter Sullivan did kill himself.
He died in his prison cell of blood loss after he stabbed himself in the neck
with his spoon.
His body was buried in a cemetery just outside his hometown of Silent Hill in
an unmarked grave.
After that, his name became famous all over the world and it looked like his
string of mass murders was finished at 10 out of 21.
But 3 years later, they found a corpse that had "12/21" carved into it.
The corpse was from 6 months earlier.
In other words, the person was killed two and a half year after Sullivan
committed suicide.
The MO was exactly the same as Sullivan's.
Except for one thing.
All 10 of Sullivan's victims were found with their hearts cut out and their
chest wounds sewn together expertly with thread.
On the other hand, the "12/21" victim still had their heart.
Naturally the police think it's a copy cat and are proceeding on that basis.
But they haven't made any progress and recently discovered victim number 13.
This corpse also had their heart intact.
The police still haven't identified a suspect.
I've got a working hypothesis.
Very few people knew the details of the original crimes and would be able to
copy Sullivan's MO so precisely.
First I'll head to Silent Hill.
To the graveyard near that beautiful little lake.
Maybe I'll find the answer there.

June 11



The weather that day was very strange.
Even though I avoided the earlier storm, there was a thick fog clinging to
Fortunately, that allowed me to avoid being seen and get right to work.
The police are still stubbornly acting as if it's just a copycat case. So I
figured things probably hadn't been touched here.
But I was wrong.
I should have come sooner.
The cemetery was in such bad condition that it was almost sad.
The storm must have raised the sea level. Anyway, that's how it was when I found
Walter Sullivan's grave.
(This diary is too damaged around this point and I can't read anymore.)
I'm still in shock...
There was no body in the grave...
And on top of that, written on the coffin were the number "11/21"...

June 14



I don't think I can protect myself.
He's truly insane.
I can't hold on any longer.
His power can't be measured.
I was so scared today that I sealed off the back of the storage room.
I wonder if Eileen Galvin is okay.
She has no idea what's going on...
But she's in danger nevertheless.

July 13



A few days after Walter killed himself in his cell, several residents witnessed
a long-hair man with a coat here.
Through his window, Richard Braintree in 207 saw the man moving something heavy
and doing something in Room 302.
Even Sunderland, the superintendent, saw the man with the coat hanging around
Room 302, and confirmed there were signs of someone having been in there.

July 17



My theory is that Walter never died at the prison. It may have been someone else
who committed suicide. Either that, or the person the police arrested was not the
real Walter Sullivan.
I'm in no position to investigate what really happened in the prison, but in any
case, Walter didn't die at the prison.
The man with the coat that showed up here was the real Walter.
7 years ago he did something in that apartment. I'm certain there's a link
between that and the bizarre things that have been happening here. Just a little
bit more and I'll have this whole thing figured out. I may even find that the
real Walter is somewhere nearby.

July 18



You've seen that world as well...
That horrible nightmare.
But if you get sucked into it, it's not just a nightmare. Don't get lost in
there. If you get pulled in, you'll be killed.
But there's still hope.
Maybe this "small key" will guide you.
If you've seen the door with the placard set in it, look on the other side of
the door.
Then keep going down. To the deepest part of him.
And look for the ultimate Truth.

July 20 -Joseph



I've found something that's extremely effective against the ghosts.
It saved my life.
It was stuck into the huge rock in the woods near the orphanage.
It's a sword blade with a hand-made, triangle-shaped wooden handle that has some
kind of spell written on it.
As a weapon, it's heavy and hard to carry. But somehow it seems to change in
response to the ghost-victim's power.
Strike when the sword is energized!
If you don't reduce their power, your attack will be repelled.
As far as I know, there are only 5 swords in existence with that kind of power.
It's extremely valuable.

July 23



I've found two mysterious and powerful artifacts that seem to be very effective
for evading the ghost-victims:
the Holy Candle and the Saint Medallion.
Not only are they effective against the ghost-victims in the Other World, they
also seem to prevent them from invading my room. Just light the candle near
where they're coming in and its holy power is activated.
The Saint Medallion seems to repel unholy energy when it's worn (equipped).
I'm starting to gain some hope.

July 25



I'm going to summarize everything that I've learned about Walter Sullivan so
He was born right here in Room 302 of "South Ashfield Heights." His parents
abandoned him soon afterwards and disappeared somewhere, leaving the baby alone.
He was discovered and sent to St. Jerome's Hospital.
He was "adopted" by "Wish House," an orphanage in the forest near Silent Hill
that's run by the secret Silent Hill religious cult. When he was six years old,
someone from the cult showed him where he was born.
Since then, he started to believe that Room 302 itself -- in other words, this
room -- was his mother. Every week, he travelled from the orphanage to South
Ashfield Heights, a pretty long trip for a kid his age. Sometimes he took the
subway, and sometimes the bus.
I'm tired.
My headache is already killing me.
I'll write more tomorrow.

July 28



Continuing from yesterday, I'm going to summarize everything that I've learned
about Walter Sullivan so far.
Naturally, it was a long way for a kid his age to travel, but he made the trip
every week by subway or bus. Unfortunately, someone else was living in this
apartment and so he couldn't be reunited with his mother (Room 302).
For years, he continued to come here, almost like he was possessed, just to
peek into the apartment. Eventually, the tenants began to complain and treat
him badly when they saw him hanging around. Walter began to fear the tenants
and see them as obstacles preventing him from seeing his mother.
As the years passed and Walter matured, he began to be more and more influenced
by the teachings of the cult. Furthermore, his obsession with his mother and
his feelings of resentment towards the other world became even deeper.
Walter became preoccupied with one particular tract from the cult's "Bible."
"The Descent of the Holy Mother -- The 21 Sacraments"
"By the 21 Sacraments, the Holy Mother shall appear in the countries of the
world and shall bring salvation to the sinful ones."
After Walter left Wish House, he moved to Pleasant River, a town neighboring
Silent Hill. For a while, he lived the life of a normal student, but he was
still filled with bitterness and resentment towards the rest of the world.
Several years later, he launched his plan there. The 21 murders...

July 29



What's with this room?
It's covered in blood and rust...
This is my room...
But what the hell has happened to it...?
This room...
Is it really my room...?
It's in terrible shape...
The air is so heavy... My head hurts...
Creepy... It looks like a face.
What the hell am I writing...?

RED DIARY - ??/??

How long has it been since I left this room? I can't tell if it's been days or
But during that time, they've found the body of "14/21."
I've been having hallucinations lately.
I think I'm losing my mind.

(No date written.)



He used this place as the locus for the creation of his world. I'm certain he
must have performed the "Ritual of the Holy Assumption" near here.
But I'm not strong enough to stop him anymore...
He locked me up in this room and played with me just like a toy...
My eyes are starting to go blind...
The pain...
I can feel my body starting to die...
But...things are taken care of...
Whoever lives here after me...
You'll be the 21st, the last of the sacrifices...
I leave it up to you...
When the bell tolls,
the ritual begins.
Eileen=mother's body, blood.
Part of the mother's
flesh=super's room.
This is all I've been able
to figure out.
I hope this letter gets to you in time...

Teaching Despair: "Wish House"

"Wish House," an orphanage on the outskirts of Silent Hill. But behind it's
false image is a place where children are kidnapped and brainwashed.
Wish House is managed by the "Silent Hill Smile Support Society," a charity
organization sometimes called "4S".
It's true that 4S is a well-respected charity that "takes in poor children
without homes and raises them with hope."
But at it's heart it is a heathen organization that teaches its own warped
dogma in lieu of good religious values.
Mr. Smith (temp), who lives near "Wish House," had this to say:
"Sometimes at night I can hear their weird prayers and the sounds of [children]
crying. I went there to complain one time, but they ran me right out. Since
then it hasn't changed a bit."
In fact, this reporter was refused admission when he attempted to take
photographs in the facility.
What exactly do the folks at "Wish House" have to hide?
During my investigations I was able to discover, however, a suspicious-looking
round concrete tower which appears to be part of their facilities.
Unfortunately no one was willing to tell us what the tower was used for. But
it seems unlikely that it has anything to do with the business of raising
orphans. It may in fact be a prison or a
secret place of worship.
The cult religion that operates "Wish House" is known by the locals simply as
"The Order."
It's a religion that is deeply interwoven with Silent Hill's history.
But it's worshipers' fervent belief that they are among the elite "chosen
people" has a dark and dangerous side.
I intend to continue my investigation of "Wish House" and the cult behind it.
I've always believed that "telling the whole truth" and showing the children
the true path is our most important duty.

Walter's Diary

    Note: This diary here is from Eileen's dialogue when she is not possessed. If Eileen is possessed, her speech will be slower and slurred in a more childish sense and the wording will be slightly different.

October 1

    He told me I could write whatever I wanted because nobody will ever see it. I like to write. My teacher taught me how.

October 2

    I played with Bob. It was fun, but I went too far away and he got angry.

October 3

    I played with Bob again. I went even further this time.

        Note: If Eileen is possessed, she will add "There was a huge rock. It was really cool. He beat me up after it." If Eileen isn't possessed, she will state that the writing fades out and she cannot read it.

October 4

    My cheek hurts. I hate him.

October 5

    I got hit again. I didn't do anything wrong. I wish he was dead.

October 6

    Tomorrow is book study in the chapel. If I can't read well, I'll wind up like John. I'm really scared.

October 13

    I finally got outside. John is still stuck in that round cell. I hope I read well tomorrow.

October 14

    I did a good job reading today. I was so happy, but the 21 Sacraments for the Descent of the Holy Mother was hard.

October 15

    Bob is gone. Nobody will tell me what happened. I bet...

        Note: If Eileen is possessed, she will continue "I bet he did it. Andrew." If Eileen isn't possessed, she will state that she can't read anymore.

October 16

    Some important people came today. One of them... Dah...

        Note: If Eileen is possessed, she will continue "One of them was a lady named Dahlia." If Eileen isn't possessed, she will state that the rest is cut off and she can't read anymore.

October 17

    The important lady told me my mother was asleep in Ashfield. I have a mother, too! I'm so happy! I want to see my mother. Where is Ashfield anyway?

October 18

    I have to stay in the round cell even if I read well tomorrow. If I do it, God will be happy so I will do it. He comes into the round cell a lot to visit, but it's okay I guess.

October 21

    Sunday is the day I leave the round cell to read the book. I read very well today. If I can do a good job reading the 21 Sacraments for the Descent of the Holy Mother, I can meet my mother. The important lady told me that, but tomorrow, I'm going to the round cell again.

October 28

    I have to take a train or something to get to Ashfield. Everyone says Ashfield is a scary place, but I really want to see my mommy.

February 10

    I went to visit Ashfield again. Again, I...

        Note: If Eileen is possessed, she will continue "Again, I couldn't find mommy. Some mean girls in the train said mean stuff to me. I got scared. He beat me again, too." If Eileen isn't possessed, she will state that some of the writing is blurred and she can't read anymore.

March 17

    I went to Ashfield again. It was my fourth time. Just like last time, my mother... ....The city is scary and the apartment where my mother is has...

        Note: If Eileen is possessed, she will state "Just like before, I didn't see mommy" and continue "and the apartment where my mother is has a scary guy in it. If I can just read the 21 Sacraments for the Holy Mother thing, I can be with her." If Eileen isn't possessed, she will state that she can't read anymore.

Teaching Despair: "Hope House"

"Hope House", an orphanage on the outskirts of Silent
Hill. But behind its false image is a place where children
are kidnapped and brainwashed.
Hope House is managed by the "Silent Hill Smile Support
Society," a charity organization sometimes called "4S." It's
true that 4S is a well-respected charity that "takes in poor
children without homes and raises them with hope."
But at it's heart, it is a heathen organization that
teaches its own warped dogma in lieu of good religious values.
Mr. Smith (tempt), who lives near "Hope House," had this
to say: "Sometimes at night I can hear their weird prayers and
the sounds of [children] crying. I went there to complain one
time, but they ran me right out. Since then, it hasn't changed
a bit."
In fact, this reporter was refused admission when he
attempted to take photographs in the facility. What exactly do
the folks at "Hope House" have to hide?
During my investigations, I was able to discover,
however, a suspicious-looking round concrete tower which appears
to be part of their facilities.
Unfortunately no one was willing to tell us what the
tower was used for. But it seems unlikely that it has anything
to do with the business of raising orphans. It may in fact be a
prison, or a secret place of worship.
The cult religion that operates "Hope House" is known by
the locals simply as "The Order".
It's a religion that is deeply interwoven with Silent
Hill's history. But its worshipers fervent belief that they
are among the elite "chosen people" has a dark and dangerous
I intend to continue my investigation of "Hope House" and
the cult behind it. I've always believe that "telling the whole
truth" and showing the children the true path, is our most
important duty.

Stanley's Diary # 1

This day has finally come.
That's right -- the day when you and
I will meet.
I was always thinking of you,
here in this gloomy cell.
I never even knew your name or face until today.
But now I know.
I know you're the one
I've been waiting for.
And haven't you been
waiting for me, too?
That's why you came to rescue me.

Oh, how I love you, Heather.

I want to give you my prized doll
I made to commemorate our meeting,
the start of this everlasting love.
Ah, I can already
see your smiling face.

Stanley Diary # 2

The Organization has me shut up in here.
They mean to break my will, to make me forget about all that.
But I'll stay sane even
if they throw me in here with lunatics.
How about if I stick this to the wall?
That would be worthless.
You can peel it off, can't you,
with that junk those
nasty wenches won't stop using ?
If a thing has no meaning,
there's no reason for it to
exist at all.
Just as you exist for me.
But why haven't you taken my doll with you ?
Ah, my gift must've embarrassed you.
How cute you are, Heather!

There was a tattooed guy
on that rumpled bed. Not any more,
That alarm clock and filthy bag are his.
Ah, but don't misunderstand.
I haven't done a thing.
I didn't hate him,
though he was a liar.
Shall I write something of my own?
On my chest, since I can't cut it open to show you my heart.
"I Love Heather".

No, something a bit more forceful.
"I Love Heather" isn't enough for what I feel.
Oh, what tender emotion this image

Stanley's Diary # 5

Flowing freely, your ebony hair.
Like the night sky, scattering
My heart, clamoring in my chest.
Like a storm, you trifle with it.
Your pristine glance.
Like a feast, when you smile.
My thoughts disturbed,
my breath like opium,
it drives me mad.

Eric, a great poet who conveys my feelings so well. I
shouldn't have let this place get to me, should never have gone
crazy. But it's superbly enjoyable to drown in my love for you.

But why won't you accept proof of my love ? Don't stand on
ceremony, now.
After all, you and I exist as one. What I give to you is
the same as what I give to me.

Heather, my most sacred lover.
I'm always watching you.
No matter where you are or what you may be doing,
I have never lost sight of you.
I know you feel intensely lonely.
Yet with a single key to this door, those feelings won't stand in the way any longer.
We haven't been able to see each other for so long.
Be patient --- it's just a little longer.
I'll be patient, too, even though I long to hold you in these hands of mine.
The key is behind the shelves in the underground garage.
Why there? Ask that idiot doctor.
Theres not a single person here who's right in the head.
Not just in this hospital --- I mean in all of Silent Hill.
Except me.

Stanley's puzzle on hard mode 

When playing on Hard difficulty, the door to the second floor patient wing will be locked with a key pad, the solution to which is found in one of Stanley Coleman's diary entries. The disturbing diary reads:
            "Pure eyes, blue like a glassy bead---
            You are always looking at me
            and I am always looking at you.

            Ah, you're too meek---
            beautiful, unspoiled:
            thus I'm so sad, I suffer---
            and so happy, it hurts.

            I want to hurt you
            and destroy myself
            What you would think
            if you knew how I felt.

            Would you simply smile,
            not saying a word?
            Even curses from your mouth
            would be as beautiful as pearls.

            I place my left hand on your
            face as though we were to kiss.
            Then I suddenly shove my thumb
            deep into your eyesocket.
            Abruptly, decisively,
            like drilling a hole.

            And what would it feel like?
            Like jelly?
            Trembling with ecstasy, I obscenely
            mix it around and around: I must
            taste the warmth of your blood.

            How would you scream?
            Would you shriek "It hurts!
            It hurts!" as cinnabar-red tears
            stream from your crushed eye?

            You can't know the maddening
            hunger I've felt in the midst of
            our kisses, so many of them
            I've lost count.

            As though drinking in your cries,
            I bring my hopes to fruition:
            biting your tongue, shredding it,
            biting at your lips as if tasting
            your lipstick.

            Oh, what euphoric heights I would
            reach, having my desires fulfilled
            like a greedy, gluttonous cur.

            I longed, too, for your cherry-tinted
            cheeks, tasty enough to bewitch my
            I would surely be healed,
            and would cry like a child.

            And how is your tender ear?
            It brushes against my cheek;
            I want it to creep up to my lips so
            I can sink my teeth into its flesh.

            Your left ear, always hearing words
            whispered sweet as pie---
            I want it to hear my true feelings.
            I never lied, no...
            but I did have my secrets.

            Ah, but what must you think of me?
            Do you hate me? Are you afraid?
            As though inviting you to the agony
            at the play's end, if you wish, you
            could destroy me---I wouldn't care.

            As you wish, you may destroy me
            ---I wouldn't care."

Note to the Doctor

Dr. Midkiff: Please use extra caution with the patient in room 312.
He should still have his religious freedom here in the
hospital, but he shouldn't push his faith on others.
I'm a victim, too. Rumor has it he got here by stabbing someone over
a religious dispute. Please be careful.

P.S. It looks like the rumor is true,
according to the head nurse.
I do think he's a good person otherwise,
though---easy to deal with.

Leonard's Notebook

The world is teeming with unnecessary people.
It's God's decision that I fight.
As a knight of honor,
as a protector of the seal,
I sacrifice myself to the blood of criminals.

Sacrifical Book

Lost Memories.
One characteristic, mentioned only in rare documents and dying
out in the modern age, is that of the ritual
"Offering prayers, pierce a man's chest with a
copper stake. Drench the altar in the blood which spouts red
from the heart, to praise and to show loyalty unto God."
In another sacrificial rite mentioned in the same book, the
victim is burned alive.
This was a more dignified ceremony in
which prisoners and sinners were not allowed to participate. Only the clergy could be sacrificed.
Similar to burning at the
stake, no comparable rite can be found in religions practiced
nearby. It may have some connection with the main deity being a
sun god.
Even though this religion extols redemption, it brings to
mind a dark and cultish history.

TU FUI, EGO ERIS is a line spoken in Silent Hill 3. It is Latin and translates into: "I was you, you will be me". The line is spoken by Heather Mason, having read it in the fairy tale scattered in notes throughout the building, to make the Glutton monster disappear. Prior to the words, the Glutton is impassable and cannot be harmed by Heather.

It may be noted that this is also found transcribed over the Capuchin crypts in Italy, an ossuary that allows visitors to view the skeletons so as to reflect upon their own eventual death.

Fairytale Transcript

Fairy tale, Beginning

Once upon a time, there was a monster living at the gates of a village.
It was a very scary and a very bad monster.
It would catch people and crunch them up with its big teeth.

The villagers were afraid of the monster, and no one would dare approach the gates.
Everyone was stuck inside the village.

When the king heard about this, he summoned his knights.
The knights eagerly rode out to defeat the monster.

"Ha! Take that!"
Their swords slashed and their spears flashed, but the monster wouldn't die.
The monster tossed the knights into his mouth one by one, horses and all.

What was the king to do?
He fretted and fussed and paced the floor, but could think of no solution.

Soon after, the village priestess came to the castle.
She was a very kind and good person.
The king asked her to defeat the monster guarding the gates.

Fairy tale, continued

The priestess accepted the king's request and went to the village gates.
But when she saw the monster, she tried to convince it with words instead of killing it.

"Shut up, you! I'm going to eat you up!"
The monster didn't listen to a word the priestess said.

But she kept trying to convince the monster to give up.
"It's wrong to eat people, you know."

The monster grew very angry at this and attacked her, killing her with a single mighty blow.

Fairy tale, Last Part

The king and his people shed tears at the death of the kind priestess.
God took pity upon them and, granting their wishes, healed the priestess.

The priestess opened her eyes just as she had done every morning of her life.
She went once more to the monster's lair.

"Fool! You wish to die again?"
"No... this time it's your turn."
The priestess had come to defeat the monster once and for all.

As the priestess was very very kind, she felt sad about this task.
But it had to be done.

"Swords and spears won't work. Arrows and bullets will just bounce off. You can't kill me," the monster laughed.
But the priestess used neither sword nor spear. She chanted but a single spell.

Do you know what happened then?
The monster let out a huge cry and then died and vanished!

Thus the villagers were able to use their gates once more.
Everyone lavished their gratitude upon the priestess, and they all lived happily ever after.


It is possible that the fairy tale was written by Claudia Wolf as a young child, and that the priestess in the fairy tale represents Claudia herself, and that the monster represents Harry Mason, as Heather reads the fairy tale not long before she discovers her father has been murdered. Claudia views Harry as a "monster" for stealing her childhood friend, Alessa Gillespie, away from her. This is evident when Claudia mockingly says Harry's name to Douglas Cartland ("That man, Harry Mason, stole her away and kept her hidden from us.").
The monster, Harry, having been indirectly killed by the priestess, Claudia, to bring happiness to other people.

The act of killing the monster in the fairytale apparently "had to be done". This strongly relates to Claudia's feelings toward Harry, who she believes must be murdered to birth God, in turn, giving everyone (in the fairy tale, the village) happiness. If the fairytale was written by Claudia, then it would also correspond to the priestess being a "very, very kind" person; Claudia does not see herself as evil or self-righteous, but believes she is doing good for the world by trying to resurrect the Order's god and bringing salvation and Paradise to the people.

The priestess also uses words to indirectly kill the monster; likewise, Claudia uses the Missionary to indirectly kill Harry. Heather has no choice but to get rid of the monster, as it blocks her way out of the Hilltop Center, thus she can be seeing reiterating the role of the priestess.

The priestess's resurrection may also be a reference to Valtiel and the fact that it always resurrects Heather if she dies.


In the beginning, people
had nothing.
Their bodies ached, and their
hearts held nothing but hatred.
They fought endlessly,
but death never came.
They despaired, stuck in
the eternal quagmire.


A man offered a serpent to the
sun and prayed for salvation.
A woman offered a reed to the
sun and asked for joy.
Feeling pity for the sadness that
had overrun the earth, God was
born from those two people.


God made time and divided
it into day and night.
God outlined the road to
salvation and gave people joy.
And God took endless time
away from the people.


God created beings to lead people
in obedience to Her.
The red god, Xuchilbara;
the yellow god, Lobsel Vith;
many gods and angels. Finally,
God set out to create Paradise,
where people would be happy
just by being there.


But there God's strength ran out,
and She collapsed.
All the world's people grieved this
unfortunate event, yet God
breathed Her last.
She returned to the dust,
promising to come again.


So God hasn't been lost.
We must offer our prayers and
not forget our faith.
We wait in hope for the day when
the path to Paradise will be opened.


I hope this will never come to any use; maybe it's better if you never know. More than anything else, I fear the possibility of your going away, far from me. But sometimes we have to tell the truth. That's why I'm writing this, before I'm lost in death and oblivion.

What happened back then? That has something to do with who you are.

It all started 24 years ago. Coming back from a vacation, my wife and I found a baby on the side of the highway. Since we were childless, we thanked God for letting us meet this child...this girl. We took her home. Three years later, my wife died, and another four years later - 17 years ago - I came to Silent Hill. I heard the girl's pleas and took her with me, not knowing why she wanted us to go there.

And it was there that the girl went away. Not that she actually went anywhere, nor did she die. "Returned to her former self"...that's what Dahlia Gillespie said. "Original self"...That was the young woman burned by her mother as a sacrifice to God...Alessa Gillespie. Half her soul escaped in those flames and went on to live in a that girl of mine. Of ours.

Seven years passed before that half-a-girl returned to Silent Hill and made Alessa whole again. Newly strengthened, she vowed to kill God. God, a fetus nestled into this sacrificial girl's womb, was summoned with the usual rites. This was Alessa's wish, no matter what the outcome - even if her own existence were at stake.

But that wish was not granted. My interruption meant she prayed instead for the girl's return. I alone couldn't bring her back. Dahlia did it - I only helped at the birthing ceremony, to bring God out of Alessa. The newly-born God wailed once and was dead. All from that girl's - and probably Alessa's conscious resistance.

That's not the end.

After God had vanished in a glow of light, Alessa reappeared and gave me a baby. She looked a lot like that girl so long ago. And then Alessa was gone, dead. There was nothing I could have done to help. I simply clutched the baby to my chest and ran off. The whole thing felt like a dream, but I had proof that it wasn't. The girl was nowhere to be found, and in my arms...the baby.

Now 17 years have passed. It feels like only yesterday, and again it feels like a million years ago. I confess I had reservations at first about raising that baby. Could I love her? Her existence was thoroughly unexplainable. I thought, "She could be that young woman who snatched away my beloved daughter." That led to sadness, anger...there were times when I put my hands around her tiny little throat. Several times I even considered abandoning her. That's what a terrible person I am.

But I decided to raise her after all. I just couldn't seem to let her go. When she...when you look at me, you laugh, so...

Even now, I can't forget about that girl. But I love you. I have no doubts about that. That's all I ask you to believe.

To my precious daughter...

Silent Hill 2 Memos

Book of Lost Memories

    "The name comes from the legend of the people whose land was stolen from them.

    They called this place "The Place of the Silent Spirits." By "Spirits," they meant not only their dead relatives, but also
    the spirits that they believed inhabited the trees, rocks and water around them.

    According to legend, this was where the holiest ceremonies took place.
    But it was not the ancestors of those who now live in this town that first stole the land from these people. There were others who came before.

    In those days, this town went by another name. But that name is now hopelessly lost in the veils of time.

    All we know is that there was another name, and that for some reason the town was once abandoned by its residents."

Born From a Wish  

In the sub-scenario Born From a Wish Maria can read a memo titled "Lost Memories" in the Baldwin Mansion study. The memo reads:
    "I have the strongest trust - you may
    even call it faith - in the miracle
    called "Resurrection[sic] of the Dead".

    Upon the hill where
    the light descended,
    the Beast intoned his song.
    With words of blood,
    drops of mist and
    the vessel of night,
    the grave become an open field.

    The people wept in fear and joy
    at the reunion, but my faith in the
    salvation of Xuchilpaba did not

    It is also spoken of in the ancient
    legends. The original worshipers
    did not believe that death was the
    end but that it was simply the path
    by which the deceased returned to
    nature. They also believed the
    process was reversible."

There is also a note written by Ernest Baldwin at the end of the memo that reads:


Crimson Ceremony Book
    I am the Crimson One.
    The lies and the mist are
    not they but I.
    You all know that I am One.
    Yes, and the One is I.

    Believers hearken to me!
    Twenty score men and
    seven thousand beasts.
    Heed my words and speaketh them
    to all, that they shall ever be
    obeyed even under the light of
    the proud and merciless sun.

    I shall bring down bitter vengeance
    upon thee and thou shalt suffer
    my eternal wrath.

    The beauty of the withering flower
    and the last struggles of the dying
    man, they are my blessings.

    Oh, proud fragrance of life which
    flies towards the heart. Oh Cup

Mary's Letter
    In my restless dreams, I see that town. Silent Hill. You promised me you’d take me there again someday. But you never did. Well, I’m alone there now… In our “special place” Waiting for you… 

Waiting for you to come to see me. But you never do. And so I wait, wrapped in my cocoon of pain and loneliness. I know I’ve done a terrible thing to you. Something you’ll never forgive me for. I wish I could change that, but I can’t. I feel so pathetic and ugly laying here, waiting for you… Every day I stare up at the cracks in the ceiling and all I can think about is how unfair it all is… The doctor came today. He told me I could go home for a short stay. It’s not that I’m getting better. It’s just that this may be my last chance… I think you know what I mean… Even so, I’m glad to be coming home. I’ve missed you terribly. But I’m afraid James. I’m afraid you don’t really want me to come home. Whenever you come see me, I can tell how hard it is on you… I don’t know if you hate me or pity me… Or maybe I just disgust you… I’m sorry about that. When I first learned that I was going to die, I just didn’t want to accept it. I was so angry all the time and I struck out at everyone I loved most. Especially you, James. That’s why I understand if you do hate me. But I want you to know this, James. I’ll always love you. Even though our life together had to end like this, I still wouldn’t trade it for the world. We had some wonderful years together. Well this letter has gone on too long so I’ll say goodbye. I told the nurse to give this to you after I’m gone. That means that as you read this, I’m already dead. I can’t tell you to remember me, but I can’t bear for you to forget me. These last few years since I became ill…I’m so sorry for what I did to you, did to us… You’ve given me so much and I haven’t been able to return a single thing. That’s why I want you to live for yourself now. Do what’s best for you, James. James… You made me happy.

Memo next to corpse #1
    I'm going to write everything that I've learned so far. Maybe that will help you out somehow. If you're reading this, it probably means I'm already dead.

Memo next to corpse #2
    I saw those demons. They were there, I'm certain. But my friend says he didn't see anything. If that's true, does that mean that what I saw was an illusion? But whether that demon that ate human beings was real, or whether it was just some kind of hallucination that my mind dreamed up... one thing I know for sure is that I'm beyond all hope.

Memo next to corpse #3
    It seems that they're attracted to light. That's why people who need light to see are their natural prey. They also react strongly to sound. If you want to go on living, you'd be better off just sitting in the dark and staying quiet. But even that probably won't save you.

Memo next to corpse #4
    If you're going to try to fight them, the most important thing is to relax. It's dangerous to fire a gun while you're all crazy with fear. Take good aim, and then squeeze the trigger. And don't forget to finish them off. I think most of those creatures can be killed, even if they are tougher than people.

Newspaper from shop window
     There was a HOLE here. It's gone now. This could possibly be a reference to Silent hill 4, which game's events were happening during SH2. Holes would often open up to Walter's Otherworlds.

"Lost Memories"
    The name comes from the legend of the people whose land was stolen from them. They called this place "The Place of the Silent Spirits." By "Spirits," they meant not only their dead relatives, but also the spirits that they believed inhabited the trees, rocks and water around them. According to legend, this was where the holiest ceremonies took place. But it was not the ancestors of those who now live in this town that first stole the land from these people. There were others who came before. In those days, this town went by another name. But that name is now hopelessly lost in the veils of times. All we know is that there was another name, and that for some reason the town was once abandoned by its residents. 

"The key is in the park."
    Or perhaps you are a fool. The truth usually betrays people. A part of that abyss is in the old society. The key to the society is in the park. At the foot of the praying woman, inside of the ground, inside of a box. To open it, I need a wrench. My patient buried it there. I knew, but I did nothing. It made me uneasy to have such a thing near. I wasn't looking for the truth, I was looking for tranquility. I also saw that thing. I fled, but the museum was sealed as well. Now no one dares to approach that place. If you still do not wish to stop, James, I pray to the Lord to have mercy on your eternal soul.

Article about murder incident
    The police announced today that Walter Sullivan, who was arrested on the 18th of this month for the brutal murder of Billy Locane and his sister Miriam, committed suicide in his jail cell early on the morning of the 22nd. According to the police statement, Sullivan used a soup spoon to stab himself in the neck, severing his carotid artery. By the time the guard discovered him, Sullivan was dead from blood loss, the spoon buried two inches in his neck. An old schoolmate of Walter Sullivan's from his hometown of Pleasant River said "He didn't look like the type of guy who would kill kids. But I do remember that just before they arrested him he was blurting out all sorts of strange stuff like 'He's trying to kill me. He's trying to punish me. The monster... the red devil. Forgive me. I did it, but it wasn't me!'." The schoolmate then added "I guess now that I think of it, he was kinda crazy."

Patient record
    [Jack Davis] 

He has attempted suicide three times in the past for reasons unknown. Although he is normally a model patient who follows doctor's and nurse's orders, he must be watched closely due to his past pattern of sudden and violent suicide attempts.

[Joseph Barkin] 
His illness seems to be rooted in the fact that he believes he is guilty of causing his daughter's death. His symptoms suggest a psychotic break and paranoid delusions. Normally calm, but has a tendency towards violence when excited.

[Joshua Lewis] 
History of hospitalization as well as numerous assault, battery and other violent offenses. He has a strong persecution complex and a tendency to solve things through violence. Extreme caution necessary.

Doctor's journal
    The potential for this illness exists in all people and, under the right circumstances, any man or woman would be driven, like him, to "the other side." The "other side" perhaps may not be the best way to phrase it. After all, there is no wall between here and there. It lies on the borders where reality and unreality intersect. It is a place both close and distant. Some say it isn't even an illness. I cannot agree with them. I'm a doctor, not a philosopher or even a psychiatrist. But sometimes I have to ask myself this question. It's true that to us his imaginings are nothing but the inventions of a busy mind. But to him, there simply is no other reality. Furthermore he is happy there. So why, I ask myself, why in the name of healing him must we drag him painfully into the world of our own reality? (Something else is written by hand.) I got the key from Joseph. It's probably the key to that box.

Whiteboard graffiti
    The pin number this month is "T". Last month it was "X" and before that it was "Z." But what are they going to do next month? That's all they can express with 4 numbers. Anyway does the door to the Patient Wing really need to have its combination changed this often?

Diary from roof

May 9 
Rain. Stared out the window all day. Peaceful here - nothing to do. Still not allowed to go outside. 

May 10 
Still raining. Talked with the doctor a little. Would they have saved me if I didn't have a family to feed? I know I'm pathetic, weak. Not everyone can be strong. 

May 11 
Rain again. The meds made me feel sick today. If I'm only better when I'm drugged, then who am I anyway? 

May 12 
Rain as usual. I don't want to cause any more trouble for anyone, but I'm a bother either way. Can it really be a such a sin to run instead of fight? Some people may say so, but they don't have to live in my shoes. It may be selfish, but it's what I want. It's too hard like this. It's just too hard.... 

May 13 
It's clear outside. The doctors told me I've been released - that I've got to go home. I --------------

    If Joseph looks calm, he can be taken out of his cell.

    Tern tern tern the numbers
    better not forget them
    So I'll right them down here
    The other one, my secret name
    I'll take care of you four ever.
    It's my destiny!
    "The basement's basement."
     I was locked up inside
    the basement's basement.
    It was so small and dark
    and I was so afraid.
    I dropped my precious ring.
    But I will never,
    ever go back there.

"She is an angel"
    She is an angel no one knows only I can see the Lady of the Door they cannot walk along her Bridge of Thread they fall from the weight of their crimes. Like bloated and ugly corpses their sins she devours them sin and sinner alike she saves me she is an angel.

"I took the director's key"
     I took the direckters's key - the
    one to the mooseum. I hid it
    behind the preying woman when
    I went out for the day trip. I
    picked it up but I did not steal
    it. I'm not a krimminal.
 "There's a letter and a wrench."
    He who is not bold enough to be stared at from across the abyss is not bold enough to stare into it himself. The truth can only be learned by marching forward. Follow the map. There's a letter and a wrench.

First flew the greedy Pelican
White wings flailing eager for the reward.
Then came a silent Dove, flying beyond the pelican,
As far as he could. A Raven flies in, flying higher from
The Dove, just to show he can.
A Swan glides in to find a peaceful spot,
Next to another bird. Finally, out comes a Crow,
Coming quickly to a stop yawning and the napping.
Who will show the way?
Who will be the key?
Who will tend to the silver reward?

Into external energy with physical effects.

To happen to just anyone. Although it's
Not clear why, adolescents, especially girls,
Are prone to such occurrences.

The Monster Lurks
Where: Alternate Elementary School, Library.
Hearing this, the hunter armed with bow and arrow said, "I will kill the Lizard." But upon meeting his opponent, he held back, taunting: " Who's afraid of a Reptile". At this the furious Lizard hissed, "I'll swallow you in a single bite!" then, the huge creature attacked, jaws open wide. This was what the man wanted. Calmly drawing his bow, he shot into the Lizards gaping mouth. Effortlessly the arrow flew, piercing the defenseless maw. And the Lizard fell down dead.
