The Bene Gesserit
The Bene Gesserit has existed for millennia, appearing as a semi-mystical school that trained women for service to the Galactic Empire as Truthsayers. In reality, they were subtly controlling the Galactic Empire behind the scenes in order to help humanity become more mature. The Bene Gesserit practiced "religious engineering" through a faction called the Missionaria Protectiva, which spread contrived myths, prophecies and superstition on primitive worlds so that the Sisterhood may later exploit those regions.
Some have described the Bene Gesserit as a secretive sisterhood whose members train their bodies and minds through years of physical and mental conditioning to obtain powers and abilities that can easily seem magical to outsiders. Due to their secretive nature and misunderstood abilities, outsiders often call them witches. Trained at the Mother School on the planet Wallach IX, and later headquartered at a hidden world known as Chapterhouse, the Bene Gesserit developed their physical abilities as well as their mental abilities.
