Wanna Marcus (10092 AG - 10186 AG?)[1] was a Bene Gesserit adept, and the wife of the Suk School doctor Yueh, who betrayed Duke Leto I after his Suk conditioning was broken due to Wanna's suffering.[2] Her favorite passage in the Orange Catholic Bible was the one which read: "Think you of the fact that a deaf person cannot hear. Then, what deafness may we not all possess? What senses do we lack that we cannot see and cannot hear another world all around us?"[1]

Wanna was believed to have been killed by order of Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, although the Baron lied to Yueh, saying that she was still alive in order to make sure he killed the Duke Leto.[3]

In Other Media[]

In the 2000 Frank Herbert's Dune miniseries, Wanna is confirmed to have been killed by the Harkonnens and her body is brought with them to Arrakis during the Siege of Arrakeen, then shown to Yueh shortly before he is killed.
