"Cheryl" refers to multiple subjects. See Cheryl for more uses.
Hey Daddy, do you think there'll be ponies there? I wanna ride a pony around, just like a cowboy!
—Cheryl, from the novel.

Cheryl Mason is the adopted daughter of Harry Mason in Silent Hill. She disappears after Harry crashes his car upon arriving in the town, and finding her becomes his primary objective throughout the game.

Appearance

Cheryl wears a pinkish-colored jumper under a blue-and-white checkered dress. She wears white socks that go up to just below the knees, which are dirty at the bottom. She wears no shoes. On her dress around the chest area are two stitched cats, one yellow and one white. This could represent Cheryl and Alessa, separate but the same.

Personality

Not much insight to Cheryl's personality is given in-game, though she is very similar to Alessa Gillespie as a young girl. Her favorite pastime is coloring, and she spends most of her time on the way to Silent Hill coloring in a book that Harry gave to her on her fifth birthday. Drawing acts as a refuge for Cheryl; a world of her own that protects her from the outside.

In the game's novelization, Cheryl is described as mature, patient, excitable and understanding. She is very close to her father, and although she is disappointed due to his lack of ability to spend time with her frequently due to his work, she knows that he does this for her sake. Cheryl likes animals such as ponies, cats and fish. Her favorite food is beef stew.

Biography

Silent hill image5

Harry and Jodie finding Cheryl.

Seven years prior to the first game, Alessa Gillespie split her soul during a ritual performed by her mother, Dahlia Gillespie. The soul manifested itself into a baby, and a couple, Harry Mason and his wife, found her at the side of the road. They adopted her and named her Cheryl.

Cheryl's adoptive mother became fatally ill and passed away when Cheryl was three. Cheryl, most likely too young to realize what had happened, wasn't too affected by the loss, and carried on with her life as a normal child. Harry, however, took the loss harder and latched onto Cheryl, who became his biggest reason for living. When Cheryl was seven, she suggested to Harry, who was still in deep grief, that they take a vacation in the town of Silent Hill. She persuaded him that it would be a good idea, and Harry agreed.

Silent Hill: Origins

In the good ending of Silent Hill: Origins, a radio transmission appears of Cheryl's adoptive mother and father finding her abandoned on the side of the road. Jodie decides to call her Cheryl.

Silent Hill

Cheryl

Cheryl in Silent Hill.

On the way to Silent Hill via car, Harry sees Alessa on the outskirts of the town and swerves to avoid her. Their car crashes and Harry is knocked unconscious. When he awakens, he discovers Cheryl has gone missing. In Midwich Elementary School, Harry hears Cheryl's voice on a telephone pleading for help, after which, the caller suddenly hangs up.

Cheryl is also apparently seen by Cybil Bennett when she was searching Bachman Street, though whether the girl she saw was Cheryl or not is unknown. When Harry visits the Silent Hill Town Center, he sees Cheryl's image on a television screen.

SHBad+

Cheryl thanking Harry in the Bad ending.

If the Good+ or Good ending is achieved, Cheryl is recombined with her missing half, Alessa. Alessa then transforms into the Incubator, however, the Incubus appears from the Incubator. After Harry defeats the Incubus, the Incubator reappears and gives Harry a reincarnation of both Alessa and Cheryl combined into one being.

If the Bad+ or Bad ending is obtained, Cheryl's voice will thank Harry for everything and say a final goodbye. Afterwards, Harry is seen collapsing in sadness.

Silent Hill 3

HeatherMasonPipe

Cheryl as Heather Mason.

Silent Hill 3 takes place 17 years after the events of Silent Hill, after the canon Good ending.

Cheryl/Alessa returns as Heather Mason, who has forgotten the memories of her past lives. When Harry escaped from Silent Hill and moved to Portland, he initially raised her as Cheryl. This explains why Douglas Cartland lists Heather as twenty-four rather than seventeen.

At the age of five, Harry and Cheryl were attacked by a cult member, which caused an investigation of murder in New England due to the fact that Harry had killed the cult member. Harry then dyed his daughter's hair blonde, moved to another city, and renamed her Heather.

During the game itself, the video tape of Cheryl seen from the first game can be witnessed by Heather in the Otherworld Central Square Shopping Center. If the default ending in Silent Hill 3 is achieved, Heather will call herself Cheryl again, although also states that she prefers her blonde hair color.

Other appearances

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

CherylShatteredMemories

Cheryl in Shattered Memories.

Main article: Cheryl Heather Mason

Cheryl appears in the reimagining Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, keeping the same role as she did in the first game. Both games begin with Harry Mason having a car crash and awakening to find Cheryl missing.

Silent Hill film

Sharondasilva

Cheryl's incarnation in the film.

Main article: Sharon Da Silva

Cheryl was adapted for the film adaptation of Silent Hill and given the name Sharon Da Silva. In the film, her role as half of Alessa's soul and the adoptive daughter of the protagonist is retained, though she is two years older. Also changed is that Sharon specifically contains the good side of Alessa's soul, whereas Cheryl was never stated to have any specific part of the soul. At the beginning of the film, Sharon is shown to suffer from a disorder which causes her to sleepwalk. Like Cheryl, Sharon disappears immediately following a car crash early on.

Quotes

  • "Daddy, help me! Daddy, where are you?"
  • "Thank you, Daddy. Goodbye..."

Creator's comment

Originally we wanted to call her Dolores for the same reasons as Harry's character, but this met with fierce opposition and was rejected. The name originates from Sheryl Lee, but there is no particular significance.
