Chapter 12

Post by Freakzilla »

"I've had a bellyful of the god and priest business! You think I don't see my
own mythos? Consult your data once more, Hayt. I've insinuated my rites into the
most elementary human acts. The people eat in the name of Muad'dib! They make
love in my name, are born in my name -- cross the street in my name. A roof beam
cannot be raised in the lowliest hovel of far Gangishree without invoking the
blessing of Muad'dib!"

-Book of Diatribes from The Hayt Chronicle

Scytale goes to visit Edric. He wants to prod the ghola into faster action after learning of Paul's bid to the Bene Gesserit for his offspring. Edric says that he was told the weapon could only be aimed and released. Scytale says any ghola can be disturbed by asking it about it's original being. Edric is afraid the ghola or Alia might figure out what they're doing. Sytale is worried that Alia might wed and have children. If Paul falls and Alia is left to take control, they will "feel the thunderbolt".
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
