Atreides, Alia

Alia is the younger brother of Paul Atreides, and is born to Duke Leto Atreides and his consort, Lady Jessica. Alia is born after her father is killed, and is "pre-born" because her mother consumed spice during the pregnancy. This means that Alia was awakened to consciousness within the womb and made aware of all the memories and lives of the other women who made up her past.
