"The True Warrior often understands their enemy better than their friends. A dangerous pitfall if you let understanding lead to sympathy as it will naturally do when left unguided." -Miles Teg

Biographical Information

Miles Teg was military commander, who held the rank of highly regarded Bene Gesserit Bashar. He was a descendant of Duke Leto Atreides, and a Mentat. Teg lived about 1500 years after the death of Leto II and was a product of the Bene Gesserit breeding program, down the line of Atreides genes. He was the eldest son of Loschy Teg and Janet Roxbrough, and from an early age was conditioned to serve the interests of the Bene Gesserit. He was regarded as an excellent example of pure breeding (whereby he possessed all of the physical and mental attributes of a classic Atreides male), to the point where he was said to resemble Leto I almost exactly, with the exception of being somewhat taller. Indeed, when Teg first saw the ego-likeness of the Duke Leto in a Bene Gesserit library, he had regarded the experience as looking into a mirror, suggesting that not only did he possess the facial features of the old Duke, but his mannerisms as well. Teg's training through the Bene Gesserit involved much of the learning instilled in Reverend Mothers. This was largely attributed to Teg's mother, who was a Bene Gesserit Reverend Mother herself. Therefore Teg was both a Mentat and a Bene Gesserit adept, a combination that made him a formidable military commander for the Sisterhood.


Retirement and Being Called Back to Duty

Teg had spent his career commanding Bene Gesserit military forces. He had developed a reputation for superior ability in successfully commanding men in battle, as well as engendering truces between implaccable enemies. His successes were attributed to his genetic inheritance, since the men of the Atreides line were known to be charismatic and could ellicit fierce loyalty in those who followed them. This potential was capitalised upon by the Bene Gesserit
Teg retired from a successful career to his home planet of Lernaeus. However, some time after his retirement, he was called back to active duty to train a Duncan Idaho ghola for the Bene Gesserit, as well as to activate his dormant memories and personality. The Sisterhood believed that Teg's superior abilities, as well as his resemblance to Leto I would assist in this matter, since the original Duncan Idaho had maintained a strong relationship with the Atreides Duke. After Teg had managed to restore Duncan's memories, Tleilaxu forces attempted to capture him and Duncan, using both Face Dancers and people returning from The Scattering. However, Teg used several cunning, unexpected, and brilliant military tactics to help Duncan and Lucilla escape the attack, but Teg himself was captured.

Capture and Awakening of Prescient Abilities

During his subsequent interrogation, Teg was tortured severely with a T-Probe. The extreme pain he experienced during this torture awoke prescient abilities in him, as well as extremely heightened physical and mental abilities that allowed him to overpower his interrogators and escape. Following his escape Teg gathered many retired war veterans from Gammu who had served under him. He then travelled to Rakis where he created a diversion to allow Duncan and Reverend Mother Lucilla to escape.

Death, Legacy and Rebirth

Teg was killed in this diversion, which was a massive battle involving millions between forces of the Bene Gesserit and the Honored Matres. However, some years later he was brought back from the dead as a ghola by the Bene Gesserit. In a curious reversal of roles, the original Miles Teg memories were awakened in the ghola by Duncan Idaho. He then commanded forces which ultimately led to the subjugation of the Honored Matres under the Bene Gesserit. After the battle of junction Teg escaped on the same no-ship he stole from the Gammu now named “Ithaca” into unknown space with Duncan, Sheeana, Scytale and many others. He later trained the new gholas aboard the ship.
