After Paul defeats Jamis at the end of Dune, the book suggests that he, the Lady Jessica, and the Fremen will next travel to Sietch Tabr, a Fremen base. While there, Atreides grows as a warrior and leader, learning to tap into his powers of prescience more. Paul’s growth and increase in strength finally set him on the path to fulfilling his destiny as savior of the Fremen.
