According to the creator's commentary, PH was created by the cult's interpretation of how they saw Valtiel. Seeing as how Valtiel, as well as everything else in Silent Hill, is only a manifestation of one person's (or a group of people's) subconscious, wouldn't Valtiel and Pyramid Head be the same being that is manifested into existence through different perspectives?

From my understanding, Pyramid Head in SH2 is James' manifestation based on the painting of the executioner in the Historical Society. The executioner's look was based on the Order's interpretation of Valtiel (which we see in SH3). So while the two are not the same being, Valtiel was the inspiration for the executioner, which in turn was the inspiration for Pyramid Head.

Ah. That makes sense too. I thought it was just interesting considering Pyramid Head and Valtiel are both manifestations. One is brought about through James's subconscious depiction of the Order's interpretation of Valtiel as an executor, while the other is a manifestation brought about by the separate section of the order's interpretation of Valtiel. Got it.
