A Goodreads user asked Brian Herbert:

Who is your favorite Dune character?

Brian Herbert I have to say that there are two, of equal stature—Duke Leto, whose noble character resembles Frank Herbert, and Lady Jessica, because she was modeled after my mother, Beverly Herbert. But there are many other fascinating characters in my father’s Dune universe—the troubled, conflicted Paul Atreides, for one. Kevin J. Anderson and I explored his character in depth in PAUL OF DUNE, which is the chronological sequel to DUNE, coming between DUNE and DUNE MESSIAH.
