Adsecularis, also known as Tech-Thralls, are menial laborers used by the Adeptus Mechanicus.
When a need arises for expendable servants or troops, Adsecularis are employed. They are created through basic augmetics and cranial surgery and often captured prisoners or criminals are used for the process. Considered a lower order than most Servitors, the ultimate fate of most Tech-Thralls is to end their lives recycled into Servitor components and their implants harvested for further use.
