Hawat, Thufir

Thufir Hawat was the mentat for the Atreides and helped train Paul to become a mentat. He is old, having served Duke Leto's father. His left leg was injured in those years. Paul describes his eyes in the first meeting scene as being "two pools of alertness in a dark and deeply seamed face."

Thufir is unsure of Paul's "witch-mother" and easily believes her to be the traitor when trouble brews on Arrakis. He is captured by the Harkonnens on Atreides and becomes their mentat for a while, thinking Paul is dead.

At the end of Dune Thufir dies at Paul's feet in the final scene from a poison administered to him by the Harkonnens.
