Harvey Walters is a middle-aged man of Irish decent. Harvey has one daughter, Olive, and is divorced. His wife, Patricia, is very cold and will not allow Harvey to see Olive. Patricia had even gone so far as to convince a judge that Harvey was not fit to see her. It was all lies of course, but Harvey has learned to deal with it. Harvey has not seen Olive in 13 years and is eager to find out what Olive will look like now that she’s 18.
Harvey got a letter from his daughter asking to see him and gave him directions to Silent Hill. They had gone on vacation to Silent Hill just before the divorce because it is near Patricia’s mother’s cabin by the lake.
