Sarduakar: الصحراء

“The best thing about dreams is that fleeting moment, when you are between asleep and awake, when you don’t know the difference between reality and fantasy, when for just that one moment you feel with your entire soul that the dream is reality, and it really happened.” -James Arthur Baldwin

We all have dreams. What if they were to become reality?

From the fictional book, Dune, written by Frank Herbet lies a fictional character, the Saraduakar. Saraduakar are soldier-fanatics who have ruled the Known Universe for over 10,000 years. They secretly train on the inhospitable Imperial Prison Planet because the harsh conditions there ensure that only the strongest and most fierce men will survive.

This is their story. This is their dream. The dream of the desert warrior.
