It's not actually "the mark of Samael". Dahlia just says that to trick Harry into playing along with her plans. What you're referring to is the Virun VII Crest/Seal Of Metatron

Neat image though. But it's not uncommon for the creators to change stuff like that anyways. There was this 2 minute trailer of 2 that had a few scenes that didn't make it to the actual game.

Wicked picture.

Why they changed it to this Jesus-like figure or whatever the Hell that is? I wish they had left alone the Seal of Metatron on the wall. . .

It looks kinda like Ra. Could be an image of Lobsel Vith though, the yellow God.

I theorized it's the true appearance of Lobsel Vith. Regardless, it's an image of Incubus.

Definitely.
But why should they worship the Seal of Metatron instead od Incubus? It doesn´t make sense at all. Dahlia hates it being cast around the town.

That's probably why the designers changed it.

Yeah, if you go through the texture files on the disc in that room, that image is still in there. It's just one of the many things they changed in later versions of the game, apparently.

Ah... i have an occult reference book at home. The monster/god hanging up in the alter is the same one you fight at the end right? (good+) The monster/god you fight bears a striking resemblance to Baphomet. as in nearly identical. They made him a little freakier for the game,( his middle,lower cheast area is not a spindly little stick for one)Theres a whole article in the book about the history surrounding him. hmmmm.... i read it recently researching some references in the game, but i don't remember too much. He is connected with the templars. There was a secret circle in the templars who worshiped him apparently, and when the church found out about their heretical little group they initiated a widescale "purge" and killed all of them.theres more and i can copy the whole text if you like, but let me just support my theory with a little more info. Baphomet has the "seal of Solomon" on his forehead, just like one of the keys used to open the door, and a the caduceus (is that spelled right?) as his ummmm,well..phallus (its symbolic) just like one of the other seals to the door. i Don't know if the dagger of Melchior or the uoroboros is connected, the book was like a catch-all dictionary so it did'nt put too much information on him in there......
