Chapter 01

There exists no separation between gods and men: one blends softly casual into
the other.

-Proverbs of Muad'dib

This is a meeting of conspirators agains Muad'dib. They include Reverend Mother Mohiam, Princess Irulan, Guild Navigator Edric and Scytale, a Tleilaxu Face Dancer. We learn that Edric has the power to shield their conspirace from Muad'dib's prescience and the other members consider him a fool, only usefull in this capacity. Also, it is revealed that Irulan has been secretly giving Chani a contrceptive because she wants to be the mother of the heirs to the empire. The Guild has savaged the corpse of Duncan Idaho and the Bene Tleilax have regrown his flesh in their axlotl tanks. They call him Hayt now and plan to use him against Paul as a psychic poison. They also hope that Hayt will be able to charm Alia. Hayt has also been trained as a mentat. Scytale reveals that the Tleilaxu once created their own KH who killed himself rather than become his opposite and this is what they hope to do to defeat Muad'dib. They also hope to learn the secret of the spice cycle and break the Atreides monopoly.
They were destroyed because they lied pretentiously. Have no fear that my wrath
will fall upon you because of your innocent mistakes.

~Leto II, God Emperor
