Pastor Howard is a character who is mentioned in Alan Wake.
He is mentioned when Sarah Breaker is trying to open the door to the church to get through to the helipad, which is locked and the lock is damaged. She then exclaims "I'm gonna give Pastor Howard a piece of my mind, I told him to get this lock fixed!" He could also be one of the Taken found in the catacombs below the church.
- Because he is mentioned at the church, it is fair to assume he is the priest there.
