Chani

We’ve all got DUNE on our minds right now, unkilled by fear as they are.

I’ve been thinking about how some of these characters look to me and I think by drawing.

This is Chani, who is Paul’s connection to the Fremen. She’s 15 like him at the beginning of the book and she’s already quite stern and skeptical. She will totally take your water if you bring bullshit.

The rings in her hair are water rings, inspired by Jim Burns’ cover illustration of Herbert’s Eye.

They grow up so fast.
What are heroes like in The Fifth World? Absent sedentary, agrarian life, how do their culture heroes demonstrate the values of their society?
I have to think that the sexual politics of The Fifth World wouldn’t allow for the kind of shame and restraint that gives organizations like the Bene Gesserit their power.
