Fatima is the proxy for Famine and as her sickly and emaciated appearance might suggest, she suffers from severe body image problems. She constantly views herself as hideously overweight even though she has a smaller waistline than Todd, and he's just a skeleton! She refuses to listen when people try to convince her that she's too skinny, believing instead that they're all just patronizing her. She also often has to inform people that her name is pronounced fuh-TEE-muh, and will break down in tears if anyone calls her FAT-uh-muh. She tends to dress mainly in black since she read in one of her beauty and fashion magazines that black was a slimming color. Despite her low self-esteem, Fatima is obsessed with looking good, spending a small fortune every month on manicures, hair treatments, cosmetics and luxury designer-brand clothing and accessories.
