Hadibenotto

Hadi Benotto was an archeologist who was among the team of researchers which discovered Dar-es-Balat. A descendant of Siona Atreides and the Duncan Idaho ghola who survied the God Emperor, she was part of the Minority who could not be seen by prescient vision. She is known to have underwent some training with the Bene Gesserit.

Name[]

Since she mentions in the acknowledgements that she has a husband, it is probable that Hadi is a woman. In the Arabic of today, Hadi (هادي) is a name used only for men, which means "leader" or "guide." Historically, names formerly being reserved for men frequently become female names also; in this case, it might be influenced by the German feminine name Heidi. The Bene Gesserit Reverend Mothers also use a male forename, but usually add a female second name before the family name.
