Torture

Story Forum
Why is there torture equipment at the bottom of the cathedral of light. Its two boxes that you put people in and the inside of the doors have spikes on them. I thought the church was good so who are they torturing.
It could have been a reference to the Spanish Inquisition, as they were members of the Church who actively persecuted, tortured, and executed anyone who they labeled as a heretic. As for an in-game reason, there really isn't much to go on, as the Church of the Holy Light never really were as fanatical as the real-life Catholic Church from the Middle Ages. I suppose we can say it was due to Benedictus' true nature as a traitor, though.
They have to convert people somehow dont they?

Seriously though, that same room also has the Scarlet Crusader in it doesnt it? I blame that guy bringing in his fun tools when he moved in. That may also be the room where we find out about the Black Bishop, wich would make the torture instruments equipment brought in by the twilight infiltrators.

The Alliance has always used torture, so it's not that surprising that they would use it. How as to why it's in the Cathereal... maybe it's for Shadow Priests and Warlocks? Or Demons? Remember, Turalyon tortured a Death Knight to.. death.

Warlocks have their own crypts with a summoning circle right next to the trainer. No one knows why they have crypts under the bar, but hey.

Turalyon didn't "torture" the death knight, per say. He cast the Light on it. It tortures him, yeah, but from their perspective he was an abomination against everything they stood for anyways. And in this case, he really was.
They still haven't moved all of Benedictus' stuff out.
Shadow Priest use it. . .

. . .for kinky stuff.
They must save poor souls even if it kills them.

"That blood is sin washing out of your artery! Praise the Light before you bleed out!"
NAUGHTY SECRETS.

Also: the church of the light has a history of flagellation with fringe groups.
Brother Crowley brought them as gifts when he arrived in the city.
