- "Be brave, darling."
- —Susan, comforting Jodie
Susan Holmes (born September 28, 1964) is a minor character in Beyond: Two Souls.
Susan is the adoptive mother of Jodie Holmes. She is married to Philip Holmes. She, in contrast to her husband, genuinely cares for Jodie, despite Aiden. She adamantly defends Jodie when Philip insists on abandoning her, and instead focuses on trying to help her, as opposed to the easy road of just leaving her.
When leaving Jodie at the DPA, in the care of Nathan Dawkins and Cole Freeman, she is reluctant to leave, taking the time to embrace her. She only leaves at the insistence of Philip, who is more than anxious to have Jodie off his hands. When the player controls Aiden during the Alone chapter and decides to strangle Philip as he leaves the room, when stopped Philip will call Jodie a "monster" and "evil". As he leaves Susan turns to look at Jodie with dawning fear on her face before saying "Oh my god" and leaving.
- In Susan and Philip's bedroom there is a box with a photograph that Jodie can find; the photograph contains a flashback which reveals the Holmes' lost a baby son, possibly leading to Susan's reluctance to let Jodie go.
