In Planescape: Torment, Vhailor is a recruitable NPC. He is a living suit of armor, possessed by the spirit of a deceased member of the Mercykillers, a group which believes that every crime, no matter how insignificant, should be punished by death, so that all crime might be discouraged; their name refers to their policy that showing mercy on criminals only weakens their pursuit of justice.

Now, in his un-living state, Vhailor considers himself the personification of Justice. Anyone who veers from the path of Justice is Vhailor’s enemy. As such, if he learns too much about The Nameless One‘s past, he will turn hostile and attempt to kill the party. As one would expect from a giant being of armor, Vhailor is big and slow, but packs a huge punch with his axe, Final Judgement.

At the end of the game, if Vhailor is in the party and the player’s alignment is Evil, he will easily be convinced by The Nameless One’s enemy, The Transcendent One, to betray The Nameless One for the crimes of many of his past incarnations, similarly to the way that Ignus will betray the group if The Nameless One is Good.

Keith David provides the voice of Vhailor.
