Copec Harkonnen is the eldest son of Baron Rakan Harkonnen and is na-Baron by default. He has inherited his father's appetites, but not his patience or cunning.

Civil War[]

After Rakan dies, there is a civil war with his brother. There are two possible futures depicted in the game, depending on how the player chooses.

  • If the player chooses to support Gunseng over Copec, the former becomes the Baron. Once House Harkonnen wins the game, Gunseng becomes Padishah-Emperor, and Copec spends the rest of his miserable existence in a torture chair made to Gunseng's specifications.
  • If the player chooses to support Copec, the latter becomes the Baron and Gunseng is placed in the very torture chair he intended for Copec. Once House Harkonnen wins the game, Copec becomes Padishah-Emperor and leads humanity on a path of cruelty and terror, the player becoming the power behind the throne and amassing great wealth, becoming famed throughout recorded history.


The charakter Copec seems to be modeled after Glossu Rabban and Araskin Harkonnen.
