Family Bios from Sunset Valley - Leman, Kane and Walker Families

Brief family bios of those Sims important enough in Sunset Valley to earn a regular spot in the local paper. Any Sim without a listed Sim origin is one of mine, one of the default Sims in Sunset Valley or born in this game. Any sim listed with Sim Origins was downloaded from the Exchange and the creator's forum name is displayed.

The Leman Family -Thomas, Twyla, Courtney, Ernie, Erick

Thomas Leman

Age: Adult
Occupation: Law Enforcement currently Special Agent
Characteristics:Flirty, Over-Emotional, Charismatic, Green Thumb, Light Sleeper
Brief biography: Thomas is a born charmer, and his romantic conquests across town prove how effective he is at that. Then one night, a burglar woke him up accidentally and changed his life forever. While he took a lot of flack at work for marrying Tywla, his burglar, he has never had cause to regret the move. He has steadily been moving up the ranks in Law enforcement and has nearly reached his goal of International Super Spy.

Twyla Leman

Age: Elder
Occupation: Retired
Characteristics: Unlucky, Excitable, Eco-Friendly, Evil, Friendly
Brief biography:When you are an unlucky burglar, you will have more of a tendency to get caught then the average criminal. Twyla was unlucky twice over when she burgled the home of one of the local cops and got caught. Three children later and even Twyla had to admit that was actually a very lucky night. She is still friends with a few of her former coworkers and sometimes tips Thomas off as to the next heist.

Courtney Leman

Daughter of Thomas and Twyla Leman
Age: teen
Characteristics:  Clumsy, Handy, Eco-Friendly, Athletic
Brief biography: Courtney's life wish is to develop a perfect mind, perfect body. She is deeply in love with Dion Wolff, she has yet to notice how much competition she has for his affections. While she's good with a wrench, and good on the track, her clumsiness makes some things quite difficult for Courtney.

Ernie Leman

Son of Thomas and Twyla Leman
Age: teen
Characteristics: Insane, Unlucky, Disciplined, Athletic
Brief biography: Ernie has the unfortunate combination of traits; insane and unlucky. His insanity has created a very bad reputation for him around town, he has been known to bully any Sim that crosses his path. While his parents do love him, they are the only people in town that have friendly feelings toward the boy. Ernie wishes to be a Jack of All Trades.

Erick Leman

Son of Thomas and Twyla Leman
Age: child about to be a teen
Characteristics: Clumsy, Hydrophobic, Grumpy
Brief biography: Erick feels that nothing goes his way and this makes him perpetually cross. Tripping over his own feet more often then making his way successfully across a room annoys him more than it would most people. So far, no one outside of his family has shown any kindness to this grumpy child.

The Kane Family - Jebidiah, Meredith, Travis, Bradley

Jebidiah Kane

Sim Origins: From Kaleeko (downloaded as Season 1 family)
Age: Adult
Occupation: Criminal currently Super Villain
Characteristics: Loner, Computer Whiz, Inappropriate, Evil, Kleptomaniac
Brief biography: Jeb moved his family to Sunset Valley when he found that the local syndicate had no talent at the top of the profession. For awhile he reigned supreme as the Master Thief but was demoted after being taken in for questioning. He has now one step away from being the next Emperor of Evil.

Meredith Kane

Sim Origins: From Kaleeko (downloaded as Season 1 family)
Age: Adult
Occupation: Ghost Hunter currently Seance Holder
Characteristics: Good Sense of Humor, Loner, Neurotic, Childish, Artistic
Brief biography: Meredith has found life with Jeb sometimes frightening, sometimes exciting and never dull. She's too childish herself to be the best mother but she does try to be there for her children. Her new career in ghost hunting came as a surprise to everyone but Meredith has actually been relishing the challenge.

Travis Kane

Son of Jebidiah and Meredith Kane
Sim Origins: From Kaleeko (downloaded as Season 1 family)
Age: teen
Characteristics: Athletic, Slob, Easily Impressed, Artistic
Brief biography: Travis is the muscle in the family, not the brains. His life want is the be a Superstar Athlete. He finds working out in the gym the most satisfying place to be. The classroom he is forced to stay in most of the day is less appealing. Travis adores Tomeka Wolff.

Bradley Kane

Son of Jebidiah and Meredith Kane
Sim Origins: From Kaleeko (downloaded as Season 1 family)
Age: teen
Characteristics: Loves the Outdoors, Neat, Mooch, Friendly
Brief biography: Bradley currently wants to be the leader of the free world. He does well at school and gets along well with his family. His best friend is Annabelle Grant, he has yet to meet the girl or boy of his dreams.

The Walker Family - Wyatt, Marta, Anthony

Wyatt Walker

Sim Origins: by Selahfreeatlast
Age: adult
Occupation: Criminal currently Cat burglar
Characteristics: Brave, Athletic, Kleptomaniac, Schmoozer, Charismatic
Brief biography:When Wyatt met Marta, there was little question that they were meant for each other. They share so many traits and even their career. Wyatt is slightly better at smoothing over situations and sweet talking people into doing what he'd like.

Marta Tomasi Walker

Sim Origins: by Chrysame
Age: adult
Occupation: Criminal currently Cat burglar
Characteristics: Brave, Handy, Athletic, Charismatic, Kleptomaniac
Brief biography: Marta is known around town as the Wrench Wench. Her method of smoothing any situation over is to pull out her rather large wrench and swing it around a few times. Amazingly this works for both badly behaving appliances and badly behaving people.  She always makes time for her Snookums though.

Anthony Walker

Son of Wyatt and Marta Walker
Age: teen
Characteristics: Eco-Friendly, Heavy Sleeper, Easily Impressed, Mean Spirited
Brief biography: Wants to marry and bury a wealthy Sim some day. He also loves Tomeka Wolff oblivious to the fact that she also loves Travis Kane. Being a mean spirited Sim bodes poorly for his romantic future, he'd rather insult and argue with someone then date them. Also, dating Tomeka Wolff is unlikely to give him the sort of wealth that he ultimately desires, since she does have 3 other siblings still living at home.


  1. I love when you post your bios! It's so helpful to have all of this mapped out for people like me, who are just starting to read your stories!

    It's also cool to see how all of the Sims from the Exchange turn out in different hands! It's interesting that, for instance, Travis doesn't have the Commitment Trait in this game (having been downloaded from season 1). ANYWAYS. /random comment is random

  2. I did think that the bios would be helpful by now. While I know very well who Marta and Wyatt are, people reading this blog might never have seen them before. Marta had her own blog and Dee's Wyatt was her husband a couple of resets over.

    And Kaleeko's boys grow up with different traits than she intended with season 1. Brad has yet to go to the science career in any of my games. :)

  3. Hahaaha--I didn't realize Thomas married his burglar in this blog! Guess that's what I get for not reading from the beginning. (Or being forgetful.)

    Real cute bios. :D And no, I am not put out in the least by the Kane bios, they are only a few characters in a blog focusing on many many sims. It's funny seeing how different they turned out in this game, though!

    Lots of fun seeing the interconnections between all these sims. :D Much easier to see with these bios.

  4. :) Perhaps you didn't realise it because I had mentioned that Thomas married a burglar but not that she'd burgled him. Which only came about when working on this bio. I have no idea if she did burgle him or not way back in time. I visited and he married someone I knew had been the town burglar... LOL He'd been a cop for some time in this blog when he turned up as the leader of the infamous Leman gang in yours. That still makes me laugh to think of.

    The Kanes are very different here except Jeb. He's pretty much the same. Mere and ghost hunting still kills me. Travis and Bradley will be taking very different paths in this game.

    It's good to take the time to build these now. My added Sims are about to start going elder, their children are the connections and it's good to capture the moment.

  5. Cool bios! I like the portraits you used too. They look like candids :)

    Speaking as a more visual person, this really helps me keep up with who's who.

  6. Glad they help you work out who is who.

    They have been a help for me too.
