The DuneWiki 'Improvement Drive of March 2010' is good ol'Thufir!.

"Thufir Hawat (Master of Assassins-Mentat) (unknown-10,193): The greatest mentat of his age. Thufir was a tough, vigorous old man whose Atreides roots stood always firm. Young and strong in his young age he was not only sharp with his wit but also with the sword. Time took its toll though and training three generations tested him. A great thinker and dreamer, Thufir was always loyal to the Duke. He went so far as to kill himself for Paul Atreides his student and rightful ruler to the house.

Enlisted into the Atreides as their Mentat, Hawat was considered one of the Imperium's greatest Mentat. He was an instructor to Paul Muad'dib and helped clear Arrakis of Harkonnen threats during the Atreides arrival. Help improve!"

When I first saw an announcement of an "Improvement Drive of the Month" article (which happened to be about the Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, I mistakenly thought that "Improvement Drive" meant that somehow the Baron's image was supposed to motivate people to improve their character ;D :D

BTW, I've always pictured the Baron after his portrayal by Ian McNeice in the miniseries (simply because the miniseries were my first encounter with Dune whatsoever). I believe McNiece's Baron to be one of the few better roles in the 'series (alongside with a surprisingly impressive Dr. Kynes).

I actually wrote the beginning paragraph of this post concerning thufir hawat on another website many years ago. Did you guys get this thread on him from that other website? Its cool that you guys have used it, but I very much wish for it to be improved. My english was pretty terrible then (and sadly still is now)! hehe.

Regards: TMA1
