At Adipose Industries, parthenogenesis was the term used to described the process by which its customers' fat was converted into Adiposians. In crises, bone, hair, and internal organs could also be converted.
The process was activated by a bio-tuned pendant given to customers upon purchase of a three week pill diet. Matron Cofelia had a master inducer which activated full parthenogenesis in everyone who had taken an Adipose pill. (TV: Partners in Crime)
