My favorite "P" character

We're moving right along in this A to Z challenge. I am struggling to narrow my favorite characters down to just those I've included, but P was pretty clear.

P is for... Paul from Dune

Melange... Dune... Water of Life... Bene Gesserit. Dune was likely the inspiration for many, many currently famous fantasy and science fiction writers. Frank Herbert truly developed one of the first and most inventive universes that I remember falling into.

Paul is the son of a Bene Gesserit witch and a Duke. As the heir to a kingdom, the book begins as his family is betrayed and Paul must flee the life he knows and make his own way.

Though in later books, the Paul character just becomes bizarre, if you've never read Dune, then Paul is absolutely a character that you want to get to know.
