Mortifiers are piloted by Sisters Repentia, who committed the ultimate sin: fleeing battle. This is an act of evil that cannot be forgiven, and as punishment they meet the immeasurably cruel fate of piloting a Mortifier Engine. Based on the same mechanical chassis as the Penitent Engine, a Mortifier carries additional neuro-agonizer arrays and obloquial enhancers that exponentially increase the pilot's self-loathing. Metal bolts driven into Repentias' bones render her unable to move or even scream for death, while the baffle placed above her head prevents her from hearing any words of piety spoken in her presence. Mortifiers are then placed on the front lines where their intense suffering drives them into such madness. As they engage in slaughter, they are denied any pleasure they would ordinarily experience from slaying the Emperor's enemies, which is ripped from their minds and replaced with more pain. The only hope of salvation from this state of torment is death. But even after knowing that they will die soon, Mortifier still despairs at the realization that they will leave unredeemed. This sends the machine into a tortured death throes.
An even worse fate awaits those Repentia who not only fled but betrayed their sisters. After being bonded to a Mortifier, they are further buried behind a thick diamond shell resembling an Iron Maiden. This sarcophagus protects their tormented bodies from death's release. Known as the Anchorites, the sisters in these machines are forced to face their torment in absolute isolation, enduring years or even decades of torment before their inevitable end.
Alternatively, each miniature can be built as a Penitent.
