Valtiel is a monster in Silent Hill 3, as well as a governing angel in The Order, the religious cult of Silent Hill. He is famous for showing up during Otherworld shifts, usually turning a valve, and following Heather Mason throughout her journey through Silent Hill, even dragging her body to a safe area if she is killed. Ths is so that God can be born.
Valtiel is humanoid in appearance, but his head vibrates and twitches rapidly, obscuring his facial features; although there are not many features to behold, as his face is blank and leathery, with a series of crude stitches where his mouth should be. He is garbed in ceremonial robes and wears gloves. Valtiel has the Seal of Metatron on both of his shoulders. Metatron and Valtiel are both considered the "Agents of God", and this mark could suggest that Valtiel is in Metatron's servitude or that he himself is actually Metatron.
As God's attendant, Valtiel observes Heather in order to ensure the birth of God. His garb (consisting of a mask, smock, and gloves) is reminiscent of surgical wear, symbolizing his role in helping to deliver the reborn God.
Valtiel could be identified with either Lobsel Vith or Xuchilbara, the Yellow Angel and Red Angel respectively, mentioned in "Myth 4: Creation". Both having been created to assist God in keeping humanity obedient to her, an important duty. Given Valtiel's distinction as being the closest to God, he could be either one. In the same Myth, there is a being similar to Valtiel, if not Valtiel himself, in the bottom left of the painting. This, coupled with the fact that Valtiel and Pyramid Head have yellow and red colored heads respectively, could be further proof of a connection to the Yellow and Red gods.
Although he makes no appearance outside of Silent Hill 3, the fact that he is seen during Otherworld shifts and the presence of the Otherworld in the rest of the series suggests that Valtiel is always there, watching over the safety of the "Holy Mother".
- A statue of Valtiel appears in Silent Hill: Revelations. Also, a homeless man Heather finds on the street during the film changes his face into something similar to Valtiel for a split second.
