Physical Appearance:
Fatima is 5'0" and has a very delicately-boned but curvy figure.  Her long black hair, normally worn in a braid which falls to her hips.  She has smokey jade-green eyes, and a very lovely heart-shaped face.  Her beauty, however, is normally kept concealed beneath full burqa robes (see below).
Clothing:
Fatima comes aboard the Jin Dui with literally only the clothes on her back -- a yellow full burqa over a short-sleeve shirt and capri-length pants, Ked-style loafers.
Possessions:
tbd -- literally comes aboard the ship with nothing more than she is wearing and whatever she’s got in her pockets.
Family:
Only daughter of Ali (a municipal clerk) and Aasera (a mehndi artist) ibn Taya; six older brothers and a large extended family on Persephone. Married onto the family-ship Parysatis, a Caravel Class transport.  She was the junior wife of Vahid Nahas; the senior wife Jaleh had two children, son Dalir (was 4 at time of death) and Arezu (was 2 at time of death).  Father-in-law Captain Ebrahim Nahas; mothers-in-law Anahita & Laleh; brother-in-law Eksander; sisters-in-law Mithra & Pardis; Eksander’s young children were daughters Roya & Kiana, son Samir.  Note:  Fatima will not speak about her relations, and does not seek out her living relations on Persephone when the Jin Dui visits that port.
Friends/Other:
unknown
Skills:
a decent pilot.  She is a capable professional who earned her license honestly.  But she doesn’t have Williams’ war-honed reflexes, or Sully’s wide experience.  All she has ever flown previously was her family’s Caravel transport.
Hobbies:
A skilled mehndi artist, who was raised to take over her mother’s henna studio.
Personality:
Fatima is very soft-spoken and reticent by nature, and presents a very shy & enigmatic presence to the rest of the crew about the Jin Dui.  She is reluctant to share any personal information, and seems to mostly concentrate on completing physical chores around the ship.  A practicing Muslim.
History:
she is extremely reluctant to speak about her history prior to coming aboard the Jin Dui.  She will say that she served aboard the family merchanter Parysatis, but that it was destroyed during the war. The experience was extremely traumatic, and she does not wish to discuss it -- after which she will refuse to say anything more.

5'0", smokey-jade eyes under a worn yellow burqa. Fatima is very soft-spoken and reticent by nature, and presents a very shy & enigmatic presence to the rest of the crew about the Jin Dui.  She is reluctant to share any personal information, and seems to mostly concentrate on completing physical chores around the ship.  A practicing Muslim; was married and served aboard the family ship Parysatis, a Caravel Class transport which was destroyed during the war, with the loss of the rest of the crew.
