The Tortured Soul was a Strike Cruiser in the Mantis Warriors fleet. It was commanded by 2nd Company Captain Maetrus during the Badab War. When Maetrus finally realized the hold Chaos had on Commander Huron of the Astral Claws during the defense of Badab Primaris, he turned the Tortured Soul's guns on his former allies. By doing so, he broke the Mantis Warrior's defensive formation in two and joined his guns with those of the Star Phantoms, allowing a corridor for them to launch their drop pods. When Lord Huron's own cruiser punched out of the atmosphere and cut through the Exorcists' blockade, Maetrus threw the Tortured Soul into pursuit and charged into the Maelstrom with guns blazing in the tyrant's wake.
