Han Solo being tortured

"Why are they doing this?"
―Leia Organa[src]

Torture was a means of punishment, or interrogation through causing physical pain. Darth Vader was adept at it: even as a Jedi, he Force choked Poggle the Lesser to gain information on killing the brain worms.[1] He once tortured Han Solo so his pain would reverberate through the Force and draw out Luke Skywalker.[2]

The Galactic Empire used interrogator droids equipped with mind probes to torture subjects, though they proved futile against resilient subjects like Leia Organa.[3]

After the New Republic supplanted the Empire, the new government enacted anti-torture laws, which did not prevent the First Order from secretly developing a new model of interrogator droid.[4]

The Tusken Raider nomads of Tatooine practiced ritual torture of captives.[5]


Titles set in bold means that the word torture, including inflections and compounds, is mentioned.
