Tourment was a giant of a man - a few inches over seven feet tall and somewhere around 400 pounds - and extremely strong. His legs were too weak to hold his massive weight, however, so he was forced to wear an exoskeleton to help him walk.
The man known only as Tourment was a baron who ruled over Lafayette, Lousiana, and a large part of the swamps around it. He and his forces were in a stalemate with rebels led by Jak Lauren until the companions came and tipped the balance; they burned down the hotel he used as a base, chased him into the swamp, and crippled him, then fed him to a giant alligator.
