What do you think is Fatima's personal legend? This wasn't really mentioned in the book.

Fatima was all about the personal legend. Santiago asks her to marry him but Fatima insists he must find his personal legend first. The personal legend is an idea similar to Joseph Campbell's "heroes journey" or quest. We all have one and I'm sure Fatima had one too. The story, however, isn't about Fatima or her calling. I would guess that Santiago and his quest might fit into Fatima's personal legend somehow but we just aren't given enough information to know more.
