Each novel in the Saga preceding Dune deals with the effects of Paul’s Legacy on the Known universe, Dune Messiah and Children of Dune most of all. At the Start of Messiah, we are immediately faced with problems surrounding Pauls Rule of the Imperium. Dune Messiah opens with a recorded interrogation between a Fremen priest and a historian named Bronso, who has been labelled a “heretic” and sentenced to death, for his accurate writings on emperor Paul Muad’Dib. 12 years have passed since the events of Dune. At this point it time, Paul Atreides rules from Arrakis as Emperor of the Imperium. Though Paul is the most powerful Emperor ever, he is still incapable of stopping the lethal religious excesses of the juggernaut he has created.The Jihad has been unleashed at it has conquered most of the known universe. 61 billion people have died so far due to Paul’s decision to become the messiah of the Fremen people. But according to Paul’s vision this nowhere close to the worst possible outcome for humanity. It is in Dune Messiah that Paul begins the Golden Path. A complex and perilous plan to set humanity on a course that will not lead to its eventual stagnation and extinction, at the same time Paul must balance this with his duties as the ruler of the Galactic Empire and the Center of the Fremen religion.

At the same time, the outlying powers in the universe are growing restless with the new status quo. Several forces are at work and conspire together to undo Paul Atreides and reverse the events that lead to his ascension to the throne, these forces include the Bene Gesserit, who are vexed that they have lost control of their kwisatz haderach, the remnants of the displaced House Corrino, the former occupants of the throne, the spacing guild who are now under pauls control due to his control over the spice, and the Bene Tleilax, who have their own agenda, the tleilaxu have sent the Face Dance Scytale as their representative.
