Jennerican Founders: The Dietz Family  

The Dietz family has been together a long time. When Hans entered secondary school as an awkward and lonely Knowledge Sim, he found a dear and like-minded friend in Linus.

By the time Lara became a teenager, she knew she wanted to spend her life building a family with Linus.

What did Linus want? Nothing more than to be a Dietz. Well, that and he'd like to be knowledgeable in many fields.

Hans is the eldest of the Dietz clan. He's a hard-working bookworm by nature, but he doesn't like being out in nature. However, he wants to explore the seven seas. He loves surrounding himself with dark red hues, eating chili, and has a sort of geeky style about him. He's very neat and pretty nice, but he's not much of people person.

Linus has been very lucky in his life, and though he's never wanted for anything, he knows that frugality is important. He's adventurous, outgoing, incredibly neat and playful, and he enjoys exploring the universe around him. He has sort of a rustic, woodsy style, but he defers to his beloved Lara when it comes to decorating. In exchange, Lara treats him to his favorite food: santa cookies.

Lara is an old-fashioned sim and is the elder of the twins. She's ambitious, a natural chef, and very faithful. She loves all things vintage because it reminds her of a more hopeful, more wholesome time in the world. She also likes crepes suzette and the color yellow.

As the youngest in the family, Josef has always striven to be the center of attention, but he didn't succeed most of the time, despite his charisma. His mostly even-natured personality will serve him well in reaching his goal of having twenty best friends. He's also frugal, with a style that hasn't changed since college. His cooking skills haven't changed since college either, as the only dish he makes is cereal. His favorite color is green.

This family will start out with only §10,000. Eeep! I managed to build a sparsely furnished two bedroom house on a small lot for less than this, but with a family Sim in the house, it will fill up quickly! After the first rotation, I'm going to try to move Hans and Josef out into cheap apartments.

I love how you incorporated traits and favorite colors into their personalities. :)

Thank you! It really adds a layer to their personality, like with Lara's ambitiousness and Family sim aspiration. I'd never really considered that a person (real or Sim) with those sorts of goals could be ambitious, but Lara is determined to achieve her dreams.

I'm looking forward to seeing what the Dietz family gets up to :)

Me, too! I know it's going to be hectic in their home until they can start moving out and resettling. Ten thousand simeoleons for four Sims to start with - such a contrast to single Uaine with 30k.
