|Name: Alia Atreides|
|AKA: Saint Alia of the Knife|
|Lifespan: 10,191 A.G. - 10.217 A.G.|
Legal daughter of Duke Leto Atreides I and his formal concubine, Lady Jessica. Lady Alia was born on Arrakis about eight months after Duke Leto's death. Prenatal exposure to an awareness-spectrum narcotic is the reason generally given for Bene Gesserit references to her as "Accursed One." She is known in popular history as St. Alia or St. Alia-of-the-Knife. (For a detailed history, see St. Alia, Huntress of a Billion Worlds by Pander Oulson.)

Early Life on Arrakis
Possession and DeathBut her powers soon became to much for her after the death of her brother and the birth of his children, and she became possessed by the memory-spirit of her grandfather, Vladimir Harkonnen after he had promised to protect her from the other memory-bodies trying to take control, but he ended up possessing her himself. She then began, under the Barons control, to instigate a civil-war in the Empirium. she also tried to plot an assassination on her mother the Bene Gesserit, Jessica (which failed). After the return of Leto II, she was able to regain enough control over herself, and threw herself out of a window of the Imperial Palace on Arrakis.
