House Atreides

The House Atreides is the main house in the Dune series. Duke Leto is killed early in the first Dune book, and his son, Paul, takes over the leadership of the house. Their base planet had been the water-rich Caladan for many generations before, but Paul gained power on Arrakis.

One of the Atreides mottos is "We care for our own!" Their symbol is the red hawk.
