"I've got an Imperial-class Star Destroyer at two-two mark six... Looks like a deuce."
Shara Bey[src]

The Torment was an Imperial II-class Star Destroyer in the naval forces of the Galactic Empire that participated in the Battle of Theed during Operation: Cinder and was helmed by Captain Lerr Duvat.


The Torment was under the command of Captain Lerr Duvat when Duvat received a droid messenger containing the posthumous orders of Emperor Palpatine after the Battle of Endor. The messenger relayed orders to Duvat for Operation: Cinder, with his target being the Emperor's homeworld of Naboo. Convinced that the Emperor was not in fact dead, Duvat followed his orders without question. After arriving to Naboo, the Torment deployed climate disruption array satellites,[10] catching the planet off guard and in disarray. After Queen Sosha Soruna of Naboo, Captain Korro of the Royal Naboo Security Forces, Princess Leia Organa, and Shara Bey, realized that an Imperial force was attacking them with satellites, Soruna, Organa, and Bey located N-1 starfighters and used them to go into orbit and repel the Imperial attack.[2]

Restoration vs Torment

Torment comes under heavy fire from the Restoration.

After destroying multiple TIE fighters and several satellites, a Rebel task force led by General Lando Calrissian arrived, which included the MC80 Star Cruiser, Restoration,[2] Danger Squadron,[7] and the Mellcrawler II.[2] After the Rebel starfighter reinforcements destroyed most of the satellites, Y-wing bombers attacked the Torment's deflector shield generators, leaving it open to a broadside from the Restoration, which led to the destruction of the ship. As the Torment was being destroyed, Imperial forces, consisting of at least two Gozanti-class cruisers, shuttles, landing craft, and TIE fighters, made towards the capital city of Theed, in an effort to take over the Theed Royal Palace. In the end, an ion pulse was detonated that immobilized Imperial forces and resulted in the surrender of remaining Imperial forces.[7]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Torment first appeared in the comic book Shattered Empire 2.[10] In 2017, the Torment appeared in the video game Star Wars Battlefront II in the mission "Outcasts".[7]
