Like the previous WMG above. The developers mention inspiration from Franchise/SilentHill. The Brute mimics [[spoiler: Daniel]] by horrifying prisoners in the Prison (hurry to an unbreakable door to look through a window and see it.)) The Brute's weapon is also as deadly as Pyramid Heads'.

Heads'.

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.

[[WMG: Based on the [[DVDCommentary Developers Commentary]], the Servant Brute is Amnesia's [[VideoGame/SilentHill2 Pyramid Head]].]]

Daniel probably never had kids or displayed romantic interest in anyone (if he had, it would have most likely been mentioned in his journals), so he couldn't have had a direct descendant. However, DummiedOut information says he had a sister named Hazel, and it's possible ''she'' had children and had Oswald as a direct descendant. Or any other siblings Daniel had.

* During the "Revenge" ending, [[spoiler: Daniel even states that the game was his purgatory, to atone for his crimes.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The Brute also makes offensive appearances once Daniel finds the corpse in the morgue. [[spoiler: Possibly an indication that this was one of Daniel's murders. After the medical procedures to inoculate against the poison fungus, the avatar of Daniel makes a violent entrance.]]

The theory has some holes in it, some truth in the fiction and some fiction in the truth you could say. [[spoiler: Daniel hates Alexander for making him a "monster", and one of the prisoners calls Daniel a Brute, one of the zombies that appear late-game]]. However, there is some reality to the encounters with the monsters, as Alexander has his servants capture Daniel at one point to protect the Inner Sanctum. However, the servants never bother to make Daniel dead, or even put in a token effort to prevent his escape from the cells. Perhaps Alexander teleports Daniel to the cells with his power as a last-ditch effort, but can't do it again because the portal ritual must continue uninterrupted. Which leaves the question of how Daniel just gets back up after "dying" to a servant. Was it a bad trip that caused Daniel to pass out from horror?
* The servant grunt represents [[spoiler: the tortured victims of Daniel, desiring revenge against him and representing Daniel's desire to receive retribution for what he has done.]] Early on, residual memories start to bleed through, and the grunts start manifesting. Daniel does have a journal entry about the helpers of Alexander, but the entry is rather vague on description.

horror, the shadow?

Daniel does have a journal entry about the helpers of Alexander, but the entry is rather vague on description.
description. Some of the grunts are actually unable to attack Daniel, and will simply phase out if approached, suggesting hallucinations. The "real" grunts can also walk into dead-ends and simply vanish like they were not there.
* 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 [[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 [[SilentHill2 Great Knife]].

This was so [[spoiler:The Baron would have another torturer with him.]] 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).

* Much like with SilentHill, the "energy" of the area will start luring particular people. With all of the magic and torture that has occurred here, visitors will be taking on bizarre "trips", facing their worst nightmares incarnate.
