Generation 4: The Fourth Spouse!

I’m definitely starting to feel fatigue from our pre-moving.  Work is almost always an emotional roller-coaster, between the clients’ mood swings and some of my difficult co-workers.  I really need my Fridays-Sundays off to recuperate, but I can’t until the end of August because of packing & helping.  Oh well, what do you do?  Let’s talk about Miss Iris Hendricks!

 

Iris Hendricks

Iris Hendricks, the fourth Spouse

Iris Hendricks, the fourth Spouse

Iris Hendricks is a bit of an enigma.  Originally from the borough of Brooksims in New Yeurk City, she is accustomed to the glamour and flash of the big city.  Her father Yancy Sr. is a military man, veteran of such conflicts as the Great Llama Uprising and Vox Blox.  He once survived a brutal campaign by resorting to cannibalism, possibly contributing to his unhinged worldview.  Her mother Mrs. is a typical housewife, juggling her love of sports with the burden of raising 3 children.  Iris’ paternal grandmother is Mildred, but due to an icky time-paradox she has no grandfather.

Iris grew up with older brother Yancy Jr. and fraternal twin Philip, often joining them for games of basketball, break-dancing, and arcade classics like Synesthesia.  Her clumsiness often made her the target of Yancy Jr., who could be a competitive show-off, so she was much closer to the kinder Philip.  After highschool, Iris and Philip dropped out of Community College and found work together at a local pizzeria.  Their affinity for pizza and her natural talent for baking provided moderate success.  One unfortunate New Year’s Eve, Philip went on a delivery and never returned.  After a brief search, his parents decided he was gone and it would be a waste of tax-payer money to continue looking.

Distraught, Iris didn’t know what to do without her brother.  Not only were they twins, but he was her best friend.  She wasn’t sure if he was dead, or had been kidnapped, if he had run away, or maybe something supernatural had occurred.  Aliens..?  A cult..?  Shadowy government experiments..?  Much of Iris’ paranoia and conspiracy theories were ingrained from her father.  She often wears a wide-brimmed hat in order to hide her face from surveillance satellites.  Depressed, without knowing what else to do, she continued delivering pizzas, hoping one day to find her brother.

A decade passed.  Hearing of a strange town out in the desert where peculiar things happen, Iris decided to move to Lucky Palms where she met the handsome actor Deo Wolfe one night while delivering a spicy Mac & Cheese pizza.  After dating and a few failed marriage proposals later, she gave birth to an adorable baby girl and then got married.  She is about 7 years younger than Deo but is attracted to his ambition, joining him in the celebrity limelight and the field of acting.

Traits:

Insane trait Unlucky trait Clumsy trait Natural Cook trait Charismatic trait Pizza Appreciator trait

Insane: Crazy?  No, not crazy, just a bit.. unhinged.  Sims with this condition like talking to themselves, telling others about the thought-police, speaking in tongues, and wearing random outfits.  They also make some neat paintings!

Unlucky: Some Sims just seem to get all the luck, but Iris isn’t one of them.  It seems like everything she tries goes horribly wrong.

Clumsy: Oh, Iris!  Dropping this, spilling that, you have such butter-fingers!

Natural Cook: Bam, let’s kick it up a notch!  Sims with this trait are much better at cooking, baking, frying, slicing, dicing, and making delicious-tasting food.  And they never burn the toast.

Charismatic: Iris practically exhumes Charisma, and she will need all of her skills to meet and persuade the locals to help her out!

Pizza Appreciator: Some Sims just love that ooey, gooey, yummy, delicious cheese-covered flatbread with the lovely tomato sauce.  Mmmmm, now I’m hungry.

Lifetime Wish:

Editor’s note: Well this is somewhat embarrassing.  I have pages and pages of meticulous notes detailing the daily activities of the Wolfe family, but somehow I neglected to note what Lifetime Wish Iris originally had.  Recreating her in CAS, the game suggests The Culinary Librarian, Super-Popular, Celebrated Five-Star Chef, Become a Creature-Robot Cross Breeder, or Gold Digger.  So fudging the record a bit, I’m going to guess her original LTW was:

Gold Digger Lifetime Wish

Gold Digger: Now, I ain’t saying Iris is a gold digger.  Err, I guess I kindof am saying that.  Iris basically wants to be married to someone wealthy, and inherit all of his wealth after his death.  You know, like black widow Debbie Jellinsky.  Her lifetime goal is to see the ghost of her wealthy spouse.

P.S. This LTW doesn’t really matter because I’m going to change it in a few Sim-weeks anyways.

Personality:

Pancakes Indie Music The colour Irish Green Aries Zodiac sign

Favourites: Iris’ favourite dish is Pancakes, she likes Indie music, she loves the colour Irish Green, and she’s an Aries.

Generation 4: The Late Nighters

Now that they’re all growed-up, here are the profiles for the Generation 4 children, the Late Nighters:

 

 Hyperion Wolfe

Hyperion Wolfe, the fourth Generation   

Hyperion Wolfe, the fourth Generation

Hyperion is the first-born child of Serefina and Brady.  He is the non-identical twin of Deo.  He is currently working in the Architecture career.  He has an eyebrow ring and likes wearing sunglasses. (His eyes are kindof green-brown.)

Traits:

Pyromaniac trait Makes No Messes trait Immune to Fire trait Evil trait Athletic trait Unlucky trait Commitment Issues trait Eco-Friendly trait

Pyromaniac: Crackling flames, raging infernos, the blazing heat.  Sometimes he thinks he could burn this whole world down.  This Sim is able to create fires with his mind!  He inherited this trait from his mother, Serefina.

Makes No Messes: No need for tidy-up-time with Sims who are naturally avoid creating both filth and clutter.  He inherited this trait from his mother, Serefina.

Immune to Fire: Fire cannot kill a dragon, neither can it harm Hyperion.  He’s basically a superhero.  He inherited this trait from his mother, Serefina.

Evil: Alas, all Sims born into the Wolfe family are evil by nature.  They take pleasure from other’s pain.  Some Sims just want to watch the world burn.  That is why they have the red eyes, non?

Athletic: Pump it!  Feel the burn!  Move it and/or lose it!  Go for the Iridium!  Sims with this trait love working out, playing sports, and keeping a trim waistline.

Unlucky: Some Sims just seem to get all the luck, but Hyperion isn’t one of them.  It seems like everything he tries goes horribly wrong.

Commitment Issues: Yikes!  Settling down and having a family with the picket fence is just out of the question!  Sims with this trait will not want to make any long-term promises when it comes to romantic relationships or in their professional careers.

Eco-Friendly: Saving the planet, one deed at a time.  Environmentalism Sims like to recycle, conserve energy, eat only the freshest organic food, and simply hate waste.  Go green, it’s keen!

Lifetime Wish:

Lifestyle of the Rich and Famous Lifetime Wish

Lifestyle of the Rich and Famous: Fame and fortune beckon!  Hyperion wants to be the talk of the town and have everyone know he is part of the elite class.  Who says money and fame won’t make you happy?  He will need to reach Celebrity level 5 and have at least §100,000.

Personality:

Dim Sum Soul music The colour Hot Pink Cancer zodiac sign

Favourites: Hyperions’ favourite dish is Dim Sum, he likes Soul music, his favourite colour is Hot Pink, and he’s a Cancer.

Name Meaning:

Hyperion is a Greek name which means “he who goes above”.  In mythology, Hyperion was one of the titans, the god of heavenly light.  He along with his brothers helped to depose their father, and in turn was deposed by Zeus.  I think I chose the name because I’d read a very good book called “Hyperion”, which I would recommend if you like Sci-Fi with a bit of Horror.

 

Deo Wolfe

Deo Wolfe, the fourth Generation

Deo Wolfe, the fourth Generation

Deo is the fourth-generation Torch-Wielder.  He is the second-born child of Serefina and Brady.  He is the non-identical twin of Hyperion.  He is currently working in the Film – Acting career.

Traits:

Pyromaniac trait Makes No Messes trait Immune to Fire trait Evil trait Insane trait Star Quality trait Good Sense of Humour trait Ambitious trait

Pyromaniac: (Same as before.)

Makes No Messes: (Same as before.)

Immune to Fire(Same as before.)

Evil: (Same as before.)

Insane: Crazy?  No, not crazy, just a bit.. unhinged.  Sims with this condition like talking to themselves, telling others about the thought-police, speaking in tongues, and wearing random outfits.  They also make some neat paintings!

Star Quality: The spotlight beckons!  Being the center of attention, schmoozing with only the most influential members of society, and climbing the proverbial ladder to fame is the essence of this trait.

Good Sense of Humour: Oh my gosh, that`s a real humdinger!  You`re so witty and hilarious!  This trait allows Sims to make only the funniest jokes about the golden Squid and Tofu Dogs.

Ambitious: Motivated to succeed, reaching the top, always striving for the best.  Sims with this trait are happiest when working towards a goal, getting lots of promotions and receiving their hard-earned rewards.

Lifetime Wish:

Superstar Actor Lifetime Wish

Superstar Actor: Lights, camera, action!  Deo wants the world to see him and know him as one of the greatest actors of his generation.  This will probably involve gaining a bit of fame along the way.  His lifetime goal is to reach Level 10 of the Film Career track (Acting).

Personality:

Mac and Cheese Soul music The colour Grey Cancer zodiac sign

Favourites: Deo’s favourite dish is Mac and Cheese, he likes Soul music, his favourite colour is Grey, and he’s a Cancer.

Name Meaning:

Deo is a Greek name that means “God-like”.  There doesn’t seem to be any mythological characters with this name.  I don’t think there was any specific reason I chose it; it was on a list of Greek names and I thought it sounded cool.

 

Belladonna Wolfe

Belladonna Wolfe, the fourth Generation

Belladonna Wolfe, the fourth Generation

Belladonna is the third child of Serefina and Brady.  She is currently working as a Bookstore Clerk.  I don’t really care much for her.

Traits:

Pyromaniac trait Makes No Messes trait Immune to Fire trait Evil trait Evil trait Shy trait Easily Impressed trait Frugal trait

Pyromaniac: (Same as before.)

Makes No Messes: (Same as before.)

Immune to Fire(Same as before.)

Evil: (Same as before.)

Brave: Situations that are scary, tense, or dangerous are of no concern to courageous Sims.

Shy: Ugh, this trait is simply the worst! Sims cursed with this trait avoid people they don’t know, have difficulty making friends, and like hiding alone in their dark basement. There really isn`t any positives!

Easily Impressed: You did that all yourself?  That’s amazing!  This trait makes Sims astonished by almost everything other people do.

Frugal: Being thrifty and wanting to stay out of the red means a bit of extra cash in hand. Sims with this trait love to clip coupons, worry about every nickel and dime, and hate wasting money.

Lifetime Wish:

Master Mixologist Lifetime Wish

Master Mixologist: Alcohol: the cause of – and solution to – all of life’s problems!  Blending drinks, discovering recipes, mastering the fine art of juggling shotglasses; it’s all part of the journey.  Belladonna wants to master the Mixology skill.  She’ll also need to own a juice bar.

Personality:

Tofu Dog Latin music  The colour Green Virgo zodiac sign

Favourites: Belladonna’s favourite dish is Tofu Dog, she likes Latin music, her favourite colour is Green, and she’s a Virgo.

Name Meaning:

Belladonna is an Italian name that means “beautiful woman”.  There is a poisonous plant called “atropa belladonna” also known as “deadly nightshade”.  Historically it has been used as a poison, in combat warfare, as a medication, a recreational drug, and cosmetically as eyedrops (unfortunately, causing blindness).  I picked this name because it has many dark and spooky connotations, and at one point I was thinking Belladonna might become a black-widow character, using her mixology skills to murder-poison some of the neighbours.  I guess I could always do that when Supernatural comes around..


Generation 3: The Third Spouse!

I’m a bit wiped out from going to a concert yesterday, but this was saved in drafts and I can post without too much typing.

 

Brady Davies

Brady Davies, the third Spouse

Brady Davies, the third Spouse

Brady Davies spent his early years in an orphanage in the bustling metropolis of Simham city.  He was very young when his parents passed away so he has no memory of them, or any life before becoming a ward of the state.  Brady realized at a very young age that life is difficult and nobody else was going to care for him.  The lines between good and bad, right and wrong, became blurred as he developed a dark side.  Brady learnt how to pickpocket and take from the rich and give to himself.  He worked many odd-jobs before ending up in Lucky Palms as a babysitter for the Wolfe family.  After spending their teenage years dating, Serefina and Brady eventually married and plan to continue the Wolfe legacy together.

Now what is Brady’s connection to the wealthy Davis family, well-known for being illustrious philanthropists?  Broderick and Vivienne Davies, well-loved by all for their charitable nature and affluent business skills were tragically killed during a routine mugging in one of Simham’s darkened alleyways.  There is certainly nothing concrete that ties the Davies’ billions to poor, orphaned Brady.  Close friends and estranged family members often question, “What became of Broderick and Vivienne’s only son?  Where did he end up anyways?”  Lost in the welfare system, shifted from orphanage to orphanage, it would be difficult, nay impossible, to find a papertrail connecting Brady to anyone, let alone authenticate him as the rightful heir to an estate worth billions of simoleons.  When asked for comment, the executor who is currently in possession of the Davies’ vast fortune had “no comment”.  The family former butler Alfred has indeed been very fortunate in this regard.

Traits:

Loner trait Can't Stand Art trait Family Oriented trait Kleptomaniac trait Charismatic trait

Loner: Not everyone is a social butterflies.  Some Sims prefer to be by themselves in solitude, away from the craziness of the outside world.

Can’t Stand Art: Is it a Monet?  Rembrandt?  Van Gogh?  It really doesn’t matter, because Sims with this trait simply hate anything that is artistic or decorative.  What a bummer!

Family-Oriented: Family get-togethers, taking care of children, Sims with this trait like being surrounded by kin and relatives alike.

Kleptomaniac: Sticky fingers, five-fingered discount, or maybe it just fell off the back of a truck.  Possession is nine-tenths of the law, and klepto-Sims often wind up “borrowing” other people’s property.

Charismatic: Brady practically exhumes Charisma, and he will need all of his skills to meet and persuade the locals to help him out!

Lifetime Wish:

Fashion Phenomenon Lifetime Wish

Fashion Phenomenon: Brady knows that black is the new thing.  He feels that silk Tafetta is going to be in next Spring.  He can just sense what people are wearing next season.  His lifetime goal is to reach level 10 of the Stylist Profession.

P.S. Pardon the pun, but this career really isn’t my style.  It takes me forever to use CAS and compared to the Private Investigator career this one looks kindof iffie.  So I can almost guarantee you that Brady is not going to be a fashionista or complete this LTW.

Personality:

French Toast Soul Music The colour White Aries Zodiac sign

Favourites: Brady’s favourite dish is French Toast, he likes Soul music, he loves the colour White, and he’s an Aries.  I didn’t even know the Sims had Soul music!  (Further evidence that Sims have religion..?)
