He is often bullied at school being a visible minority. He has lived in foster homes in the past, but both he and Monique cling to each other as the only family each has, and as Khaled had been abused in past foster homes. Monique has taught him to be suspect of authority as they believe any authority's prime motivation is to separate them. This need to be together is despite Monique not being able to take care of him properly as witnessed by them living on canned soup and stolen frozen pizza. Khaled has had to grow up faster than he should as he largely takes care of Monique, who is often bedridden, and as he defends himself and another immigrant kid named Ivan against their bullies. It is because of all these factors in combination that Khaled, after his mother passes away one evening in their apartment, decides to hide the fact of her death so that he can try to make it on his own. Beyond not disposing the body, Khaled may become overwhelmed purely by doing whatever it takes to hide the fact of her death, let alone trying to take care of himself against all the obstacles.
