Alef Burzmali was the Bashar for Bene Gesserit military forces during the time of the Honored Matres.
An intelligent and capable officer, Burzmali was the protege of Miles Teg. When Teg retired from military service under the Bene Gesserit, Burzmali became military commander.
Burzmali was instrumental in ensuring the Duncan Idaho ghola left Gammu safely when the Honored Matres and Bene Tleilax attacked.
Burzmali died along with thousands of Reverend Mothers as he tried to defend Lampadas from attack by the Honored Matres, the only Bene Gesserit survivor of which was Lucilla.
