What Daniel was before he had a potion forced into him? He was Jowee from DrawnToLife. His HeelRealization came when he started getting his memories back. Maybe sometime after the game, he got all his memories back (and his sanity with it).

Added DiffLines:

* In the Cistern if Daniel idles again too long, it blocks the original route of escape with its fleshy residue; however, [[PassiveRescue it will create a bridge]] on the other side that enables escape.

Added DiffLines:

**The developers commentary does mention Silent Hill was an inspiration,for the Choir room if nothing else.


Added DiffLines:

** Perhaps the Kaernk represents Alexander? You only see Alexander at the end and never see his normal human appearance outside of paintings, like how you never get a look at the Kaernk. Both are creatures from another dimension and both are stuck in this world living out there time by preying on living things. The Kaernk is also categorically different than the Gatherers, similarly to how Alexander is categorically different from Daniel and the prisoners.
**This could also work if you have Daniel represent the Kaernk and Alexander the Brute. There is a lot of overlap between Alexander and Daniel in character, so it wouldn't be a stretch to say either could represent the Brute. As for the Kaernk, both the Kaernk and Daniel are never seem by the player and have placeholder models (Daniel is an arm and the Kaernk is a sphere). Both prey on living things to survive in some manner. The Kaernk are generally trapped underground, in places like the Wine Cellar and Wells. Daniel was trapped in an Algeria deep in an underground tomb.
**Perhaps the Shadow then would be Agrippa and/or Weyer? If the theories on this page about the Shadow hold water, than despite it's scary appearance it is really trying to help you like Agrippa. Agrippa gives you advice, the Shadow forces you to keep moving and at times opens up new areas (including ones needed to help Agrippa!).

The Brute shows up personally for final third of the game, but makes audio appearances in the first hub. VideoGane/SilentHill2 also has a LaserGuidedAmnesia plot that is essential to its story.

* The Brute is likely [[spoiler: Daniel Himself, representing what he has become, just as the prisoner said to Daniel. It could be Amnesia's version of [[VideoGame/SilentHill2 Pyramid Head.]], representing Daniel's wish to be punished/executed. It is also useless to run away from a Brute because they can outrun you, much like Daniel can't undo his murders.]] The "Great Knife" on the Brute's arm is also similar to another [[VideoGame/SilentHill2 Great Knife]].

* When Daniel gets imprisoned in the Cells, the Shadow gives him ''plenty of time'' to escape. It does not appear for some ten minutes. It eventually loses patience if Daniel stands idle, and doesn't leave. If Daniel leaves the cell, its spread stops immediately, averting a bad ending. Why does the guardian want Daniel to stop Alexander? Its fleshy matter manifesting behind Daniel like an AdvancingWallOfDoom can only signify the entity is not "hunting" but ''forcing him to go forward'', its advancements remind him there is no turning back from this dark descent. Any reluctance on the young man's part to defy Alexander's expectations enrages the "relatively-patient" guardian.

* Seeking Alexander's help pissed this nightmarish entity off, nothing much else. To this Cthulhu-like being, the notion of being banished by its own HumanPet, enraged it. Only turning on the baron makes it happy again.

* The Shadow's claim on the young man is why Daniel resurrects whenever he ends up dead in the castle (unlike Amnesia: Justine, who only gets one chance like the rest of us).

* In the revenge ending castle Brennenburg collapses once Daniel leaves and not before. The Shadow was waiting for him to get to a safe distance, and a strange red aura is visible around Daniel as he walks back out through the castle. The guardian was and still is following him, but can Daniel accept this fate?
