Idaho, Duncan

Trained by House Ginaz to be a master swordmaster, Duncan Idaho was considered one of the finest ever. He worked for Duke Leto Atreides and was respected for his fierce loyalty. He was sent ahead to Arrakis in part to impress the Fremen with the moral standing of the Atreides men.

Duncan Idaho helped Paul escape the Harkonnen attack and was with him as a guard while Paul met with Liet. He died in the sandy cave while holding off a Harkonnen attack.

The Bene Tleilax then built many ghola of Duncan for various purposes.
