One of two possible final bosses one may encounter at the climax of the 1999 Playstation video game Silent Hill. And yes, Samael/Incubus has breasts, despite being male--Konami doubtlessly based the character design on Eliphas Levi's 19th century artistic rendition of Baphomet--a goat/man hybrid sporting wings and female breasts (The Sabbatic Goat).

Harry Mason, and his daughter, Cheryl, embarked on a vacation trip to the lakeside town of Silent Hill. As they near the town's boundaries, Harry gets into an accident as he narrowly avoids striking a young woman, standing in the middle of the road, who seemed to come out of nowhere. Returning to consciousness shortly thereafter, he is alarmed to discover that Cheryl is missing. Even more disturbing, Silent Hill is not as he remembers it: A heavy fog shrouds the strangely deserted streets, huge chasms in the earth seem to have separated the municipality from the rest of the world, snow is falling out of season, and, most terrifying of all, strange, deformed creatures run rampant. Harry begins to explore, desperately searching for his lost daughter and a way out of this surreal nightmare . . .

More than a decade ago, in an attempt to control the supernatural forces surrounding Silent Hill, a secretive cult came up with the idea of allowing Samael, the god they worshiped, to be born inside the body of a human fetus--the daughter of one of the cult's members, Dahlia Gillespie. They thought that, through this malleable child, the powers of Samael would be theirs to command. They were wrong. The child, Alessa, was not cooperative, nor did she contain the full measure of Samael's power. Frustrated, the cult members arranged for Alessa to be burned alive in a house fire, hoping the trauma would awaken Samael. This gambit failed, and Alessa did not perish in the blaze; the dark force coursing through her veins kept her fire-ravaged body alive and in constant, terrible agony. She was moved to Brookhaven Hospital, and her bandage-wrapped body was secreted away in a basement room, her existence known only to a chosen few. The cult members could draw upon some of Samael's power within Alessa in this diminished state, but it was pitifully weak. Hoping to still claim victory from the ashes of this setback, Dahlia conceived another child, in the same manner, with the idea that this second child would contain the rest of Samael's power--finally completing the process if the two girls could be made a whole. However, this baby was stolen from Dahlia shortly after its birth and left on the side of the road. Seven years ago, childless, Harry Mason, and his wife, found this very baby on the roadside and rescued the girl, adopting her as their own, naming her Cheryl.

Now, Harry, Cheryl, Alessa, and Dahlia move through the shifting forms of Silent Hill, on a collision course with destiny. All the while, Samael watches closely from afar, knowing that his time is fast approaching, and that he will not be a slave to the will of the foolish woman, Dahlia, when he, at long last, can finally enter our world in the flesh . . .
