* The Obscura creature looks to have stepped out of a Silent Hill game, as it appears as a twisted fusion of a human woman and a tripod, complete with a vintage camera for a head. If it manages to see it's prey, it will use it's camera flash to freeze them into place and sprout tentacles to impale the unfortunate victim.
** Even worse, Obscura is a flesh construct Stefano made from the bodies of some unfortunate victims. At one point, Stefano taunts Sebastian by letting him hear the creation process of the monster, namely, torturing and cutting a screaming woman into pieces. If you check the paintings lining the corridor during this, you can also see the process reenacted in them. At one point, he even ''cuts her tongue out'' since he can't focus on his work with her sobbing and wailing. '''''Jesus'''''.

** The slow burn leading up to this first encounter is a prime example of NothingIsScarier, as you cautiously trek through what appears to be a fancy hotel where Stefano showcased his work. The place is just old and decrepit enough to make it extremely unsettling, and that's before you come upon Stefano's macabre "Rebirth" sculpture and the numerous sheet-covered bodies hanging from the ceiling in a pitch-black room.
* There's another female creature called Anima stalking Sebastian throughout Union that isn't quite as viscerally horrifying as the above, but is a tall, ghostly woman that sings creepily while searching for Sebastian, and rushes at him very, ''[[JumpScare very]]'' quickly if he's spotted. And it can ''walk through walls'', meaning not only will usual evasive tactics not work but you never know apart from the singing if she is headed right for you...
