This duel between Vorian Atreides and Griffin Harkonnen took place in 4 BG on the desert planet Arrakis.

History[]

Background information[]

On Salusa Secundus, Valya Harkonnen witnessed Vorian Atreides, the man responsible for her family's downfall, who she had not even known was still alive, come to Emperor Salvador Corrino to request protection for his planet, Kepler. She informed her brother Griffin of this, who travelled to Kepler, where he learnt that Vorian had gone even deeper into exile on Arrakis in exchange for the safety of the Keplerians. Griffin confronted Vor in a Zensunni Freemen sietch deep in the Arrakeen desert.

The fight[]

The Naib told Griffin and Vorian they had to fight to end their blood feud. During the fight, Griffin revealed to Vorian that his wife was dead, catching him off guard and ultimately getting him at his mercy, although he decided not to kill him out of honor, supposedly ending the feud, and the two were placed in the desert.

Aftermath[]

However, Vor was also being followed by the twins Hila and Andros, two children of Agamemnon who had survived for years in an isolated robotic outpost. They eventually caught Vor in the desert, and killed Griffin. Pursuing Vor, attempting to convert him to their beliefs in a new Time of Titans, they awere swallowed with the sand around them when a sandworm arrived. Vor sent a message of condolence to Griffin's sister, Valya Harkonnen, who spurnned the offer and planned revenge.
