Tormentors are powerful humanoid entities commanded by the Witness.[1] They wield scythe-like weapons, and can emit a field which suppresses Light-based powers.[2]


Tormentors are hulking, vaguely humanoid beings, adorned in what appear to be long strips of cloth. Unsettlingly, they lack faces and appear nearly headless, instead having simple metallic "caps" which emit a bright yellow-orange light. Their hands and feet both have three fingers and an opposable thumb.


  • The Tormentors bear some similarities to the unknown creatures encountered by the Drifter on an unnamed icy world, which were also described as being headless and projecting a light-nullifying field. It is unknown as of yet if the two are related in some way.
