As foremost expert on the planet Dune and the ways of its people, Dr. Liet Kynes’ relationship to Dune goes beyond mere duty. An Imperial outsider tasked with overseeing the transfer of power on the planet, her service to House Atreides is complicated by a spiritual connection to both the population and the wild beauty of the planet itself.
Differences from the original character
Liet is male in the books, and this is the first adaptation depicting the character as a woman. Liet is Chani's father in the books. It is assumed that Liet will be Chani's mother in the film.
Liet appears to be known openly as Liet Kynes, rather than that identity being a secret.
