The Tortured Soul is a rare monster found in The Underworld, during Hardmode. Throwing Purification Powder on it causes it to turn into the Tax Collector. No Tortured Souls will spawn when there is a Tax Collector in the world.
- It is not recommended to have minions active while looking for a Tortured Soul, since the minions will attack him and probably kill him before he can be purified.
- Like most other enemies found in the Underworld, the Tortured Soul will not take damage from lava.
- The Tortured Soul will not spawn anymore in the world once the Tax Collector NPC takes up residence in a suitable home.
- He will show up on the Lifeform Analyzer.
- The Tortured Soul is most likely a reference to A Christmas Carol, specifically the character Jacob Marley.
