 Alia Atreides - Dune Wiki
Alia of the Knife, is the daughter of Duke Leto Atreides I and Lady Jessica Atreides and younger sister of Paul Atreides, born in the year 10,191.
Alia was born in the deserts of Dune 8 months after the death of Duke Leto in the attack on House Atreides' stronghold at Arrakeen by House Harkonnen.
Alia was always slightly odd, hinting at her preborn nature, and Fremen culture found the child to be disturbing, as most Fremen children were removed from adult society, whereas young Alia was always to be found with her mother in important meetings between leaders of the Fremen revolt against House Harkonnen.

Alia was not yet born when Jessica took the water of life, resulting in an awakening to consciousness in the womb, and gifted, or some say cursed, her with all the memories of her ancestors and that of countless Reverend Mothers.
With the climax of the Atreides/Fremen raids nearing, and the arrival of the Corrinos and the Royal Court, a Sardaukar raid was launched against the Fremen.

Mother of Paul and Alia Atreides and concubine of Duke Leto Atreides, daughter of the Baron Harkonnen and a Reverend Mother (probably Mohiam).

Secondly, the House Atreides is in a position where it could potentially undermine the fundamental source of Corrino power: The Corrinos' power base is their military strength, their specially trained army--the " Sardaukar "--who per soldier are five to ten times better fighters than the military forces of the other noble houses.
Realizing that the Atreides are next to impregnable on the home planet Caladan, which they have ruled wisely and well for centuries, and thus have an incredibly loyal populace, the Emperor realizes the Atreides need to be lured away from this safety.
Gurney is shocked to discover Jessica is still alive, because he believes she was the one that betrayed the Atreides and that Paul does not know, he is about to kill her, when Paul walks in, and manages to stop him, and explains that it was Yueh.

In 10193, during the last engagements between the forces of Shaddam IV and Muad'Dib's Fremen, the two-year-old Alia permitted herself to be captured by the Emperor's Sardaukar rather than take responsibility for telling her brother that his son had been killed in the fighting.
Alia had chosen to observe the Fremen rites, omitting only those sections of the ritual which involved removing her crysknife from its sheath at her waist.
Alia was free to act with even greater vigor in expanding her control of the Imperium and of the young woman, her niece, who was ostensibly to inherit it.

Paul Atreides is the son of Duke Leto Atreides I and Jessica Atreides, the heir of House Atreides, a nuclear-armed aristocratic family that rules the planet of Caladan.
He also has the added pressure that Alia is pushing him to enter into the spice trance, in order to unlock the door to prophetic visions, because she feels the need for such visions, in order to rule the empire, yet struggles to achieve them at all for herself.
Alia fears this utterly because she has indeed become possessed by the Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, and is sure that her mother will notice, despite her erroneous belief that no-one has yet recognised the change in her.

He was born on Caladan in the year 10175, the natural son of Blessed Leto Atreides 1 (10140-10191), the "Red Duke" whose remains are traditionally assumed interred in the long-sought Skull Tomb or Skull Place on Arrakis.
Little is known of Paul's activities during the two years he spent among Fremen in the Great Desert.3 However, in 10193 he emerged from the desert as Usul, at once the leader and symbol of the Arrakis Revolt.
It is believed by many that he will one day return in triumph from the desert, and by others that he has from time to time and irregularly over the centuries re-appeared as a portent, a nameless prophet of doom.

Her plans include preventing a new heir on the Atreides throne, sending a ghola of Duncan Idaho (Edward Atterton) to kill Paul, and to have a giant sandworm captured to begin a new spice cycle.
Daniela Amavia makes for a spirited and appealing Alia, Edward Atterton is definitely superior to James Watson in the role of Duncan Idaho, and Julie Cox is terrific and sympathetic as the conflicted Princess Irulan.
Gurney Halleck is just as wooden as he was in the original mini series and it's a shame when comparing the heartfelt pain of Alia and her slow descent into madness.
