I knew about Moloch already but not about his "presence" in Downpour.

Unfortunately I think I speak on pretty much everyone's behalf when I say: "Interesting. But you didn't left much room for discussion."

Apart from the last two questions, that is. For that I have an answer: Who knows?

EDIT:
Actually, I found some discussion.
Moloch's sacrifices were based on immolation. Burning the poor soul. Of animlas and children. What they did to Alessa in the first game? And she was a child.

Samael, the god that didn't exist, that false god from the Cult, could be some kind of "avatar" of Moloch. Same for Flauros in Origins. In religious history everyone knows they are different beings but it gets crazy when it comes to Silent Hill.

And in Homecoming we have the sacrifice of many children. But the "tactics" are different. They were not put to death by fire. Maybe that's why the "curse" reached Sheperd's Glen. Because the parents did it wrong.

I've never read that book in the Centennial Building, and I didn't know of it's existance untill now. Thank you for the research on it too :)
It really adds some depth to the story and backstory.
But I hope that there isn't yet another cult in Silent Hill, the amount of cults in Silent Hill is too damn high! I hope as hell they don't make another game revolving around it. Or at least don't make it some crazy ass ritualistic thing like in Homecoming.

> I believe Flauros and Samael were one and the same<
I disagree.
