A fervent follower of House Atreides and raised in a small settlement near Arrakeen,
Javed gathered intelligence about House Harkonnen’s atrocities in Tel Gezer. As his hatred grew,
he gathered rebels and sought to infiltrate Harkonnen’s garrison. The mission failed.
His closest friend was captured, tortured, and put to death—unable to recover the body,
Javed suffered the grave dishonor of dehydration.
He vows to make amends, and once again prove his worth in the ranks of the Fremen guerilla forces.
Gora grew up near Tel Gezer in solitude and poverty.
Eventually, she stumbled into a career with the local black market trade,
dealing primarily in spice smuggling. In a habitually stubborn act, Gora refused to provide bribes to a corrupt official,
and her enemies delivered her to House Harkonnen, stripped her of her wealth, and imprisoned her.
Day after day of struggling against her captors, Gora was freed in an audacious attack against the prison by the Fremen
Educated on Caladan, Arya was an informant in Thufir Hawat’s spy network.
As a low ranking informant, Arya wasted no time in developing her deadly talents.
One of her first official missions was to collect information from the natives surrounding Tel Gezer.
The timing could not have been worse: she was forced into hiding as Harkonnen staged its coup against House Atreides.
It wasn’t long before she was hunted down and captured by Harkonnen spies.
Like many others, she suffered in captivity until she was freed by the mysterious Zarzur.
As Arias landed on Arrakis, shortly after completing his military training on Caladan,
he found himself thrust into a losing battle against House Harkonnen.
When the smoke cleared, he lay defeated and shackled, carried away to a labor camp.
Here he was beaten, tortured, and forced to reconstruct the devastation left behind in the conflict.
As time passed, luck finally found him: Fremen guerilla fighters, sent to sabotage Harkonnen power,
focused their efforts on the labor camp, and set Arias free..
