Travis McDermott-O’Donnell loves riding his unicorn Alia. Luckily for him, he and his family live at 437 Tidal Terrace, just across the road from the equestrian training grounds. Travis grew up on his parents’ farm in Riverview, and, although he decided to pursue a career in education rather than taking over the family business, he still loves spending time outdoors, fishing and gardening. He has a bad temper and often wakes up feeling grumpy, but his wife or children can usually cheer him up by making him laugh. Travis is based on Travis McDermott from Riverview.
Travis’ wife Aoife is a caring, creative sim, who is always fun to be around. In her free time, she likes to practice her painting and photography, or help her husband with the garden. Like Travis, she works at the local high school, which is where the couple first met and bonded over their shared sense of humour, outdoorsy hobbies, and love of children.
Travis and Aoife have two children together, twins Braden and Finola. They are both quite clumsy, even for toddlers, and often accidentally break their toys, but Finola never minds because she loves trying to put them back together. Braden enjoys spending time in the sunshine, so his parents have moved the activity table out onto the patio for him.
The family looks after two unicorns, Alia and her newborn foal Sorcha. Alia is strong, brave, and well-trained. She was once a wild unicorn, but she recognized Travis’ kind heart and love of nature, so allowed herself to be tamed by him. She spends a lot of time with Gareth Kramer-Rhodes’ horse Whiskey, who is Sorcha’s father. Like her mother, Sorcha is a natural-born racer, and likes to stay clean and groomed. She is very gentle-natured and sociable, and loves meeting new people. I did not create either of these unicorns. Alia’s features and traits were randomly generated by the game, and her beautiful coat was made by LittleV, who kindly gave me permission to include her pets with my households. Sorcha was born in-game and I have not edited her.
This is Cloverleaf Cottage, home to the McDermott-O’Donnell family.
