Baron Harkonen

Baron Harkonen is a character from the widely loved science fiction masterpiece Dune by Frank Herbert. Harkonen was, in fact, a huge influence on the character of Jabba the Hut. This morbidly obese tyrant is so huge that he relies on an anti-gravity device for transport and is by far the most sadistic character in the Dune world, torturing and even sometimes consuming those that merely annoy him.
