A torturer robot is a hovering metallic sphere studded with spinning blades, long needles and crystal-tipped rods, surrounded by a protective force field.
Torturer robots administer pain with their nanites and laser while repeating questions, their heuristic programming analysing the truth and completeness of responses. As their job requires knowledge of human anatomy and the capacity to revive a dying patient, they are also used as field medics and surgeons.
