Harkonnen, Baron Vladimir

Baron Vladimir Harkonnen was the ruler of House Harkonnen in the first Dune book. He ruled from Giedi Prime. He is immensely fat and doesn't care for women - instead he interests himself with pretty, young boys.

He hated the Atreides and often worked towards killing off all of its members. He was responsible for the death of Duke Leto through the traitor Dr. Yueh. One of his biggest mistakes regarding Arrakis is to continuously discount the Fremen as being only a few thousand weakling desert dwellers, easy to eradicate.

He had no children himself and rested the fate of his household in his two nephews, Rabban and Feyd.
