All organized religions face a common problem, a tender spot through which we
may enter and shift them to our designs: How do they distinguish hubris from
-Missionaria Protectiva, the Inner Teachings
Odrade and Waff, guarded by two Reverend Mothers are in the Bene Gesserit keep on Rakis. She lets his doubts grow for a while, then sends the guardians away and sits with Waff to negotiate. She tells him that others would love to pick up the pieces after the Bene Gesserit and Bene Tleilax went for each other's throats. Waff doubts her authorization to negotiate but she says she has such power. He says she has learned too much from him and she offers to give him valuable information about the Sisterhood. She tells him of their plan to plant sandworms on countless planets in The Scattering. Waff asks of the nature of the dissention among The Sisterhood, she tells of their fear they will create another Kwisatz Haderach. Waff said he has come and gone and only came to bring The Prophet. She says God wouldn not send such a message twice. She says they have a common enemy, the Honored Matres and Waff tells her about how they use sex to rule. Odrade tells him that they already know such techniques and the Honored Matres are doomed by the momentum of their own growing power. She tells him that Schwangyu and her faction had split from the Great Belief and they were thankfull the Tleilaxu saved them the trouble of killing them. She tells him the returned Tleilaxu are under Honored Matre control and not to be trusted. The Bene Gesserit plan is to convert the Honored Matres and when Waff gives the word, the Bene Gesserit will openly confess the true faith. Waff is stunned she knows they intend to convert the universe and wonders if she knows how they will enforce it. She reveals they know what they are doing with the tanks for themselves and that others would pay a great price for it, she demands that they share everything, Waff asks what they will share in return. She says ask. Waff asks for all their breeding records and breeding mothers of their choice and she agrees. Waff is shocked, he offers an unrestricted supply of melange. He asks what they plan for Sheeana and Duncan, she tells him that they plan to breed them and thier decendants will speak to the worms for them on those uncounted planets where they will be planted. Waff is overjoyed, he knows the ghola is his to command. Waff asks if they will spread the Atreides Manifesto, Odrade confessess authorship. Waff thinks being outnumbered by the Honored Matres will be no match for the combined wisdom of the Sisterhood and the Tleilaxu's insurmountable weapons.
