Biographical Information

A righteous and noble swordsmaster to House Atreides, Gurney Halleck was once a slave to the Harkonnens, and suffered for some time in their slave pits on Giedi Prime. The extent of his torture remians unknown, but a single Inkvine scar permeated his jawline, giving the impresssion that it must have been quite excruciating. After escaping the slave pits, he became a valiant swordsmaster to House Atreides, as well as a respected musician, his instrument of choice being the baliset. He tutored Paul Atreides, the Ducal heir to House Atreides, in the ways of the world, and trained him in sword combat. He also entertained the Atreides with his exceptional skills with the baliset. He remained loyal to the Atreides even after his Duke's death, though he did have to pose as a spice smuggler for some time, and remained on Caladan when Paul took over the Empire.
