Rene Fatima is the brother of Roni Fatima and an ancestor of Bart and the other members of the Fatima dynasty. Rene was a tall and strong man with short brown hair. He shared little resemblance with his brother Roni aside from his tell-tale jasper blue eyes. He was a strong ally of Sophia the Holy Mother of Nisan, Lacan the painter, Krelian the nanoscientist from Nimrod and Zephyr the child-queen of Shevat. He supported Nisan and Shevat in their war against Solaris and helped fight against the Diabolos Gears when Lacan's grief over the loss of Sophia turned him into the evil Grahf. Rene was ultimately killed by the angelic autonomous gears that Lacan released from a 9000 year slumber.
The names of Rene and his brother Roni are taken from the middle names of Final Fantasy VI characters Sabin and Edgar Figaro, who are also brothers and heirs to the throne of a desert kingdom.
