Star news reporter Annie and her older brother Franco were raised in Isla Paradiso by their mum Hailey, after their loving and devoted dad Cirino mysteriously disappeared. Annie and Hailey, both generous and good-humoured, if occasionally little short-tempered, did their best to set a positive example for Franco, but he grew more and more unkind every day. Years later, Annie and Franco, now completely estranged from one another, married brother and sister Sherman and Rhoda, a police officer and thief respectively. Together Franco and Rhoda built up a powerful crime syndicate, while Annie and Sherman devoted all of her talent for investigative journalism and his knowledge of forensics to bringing them down. When Sherman passed away from old age, Annie continued their work alone, foiling several of her brother’s most diabolical schemes, while caring for her and Sherman’s two children, Ty and Athena.
Now Annie has reached the top of her career, re-married, and had a third child. Franco has moved on too, having retired, more or less, from the world of organized crime, and declined into bitter, loveless old age. Still, Annie has a watchful eye on the young, ambitious, and very evil Morgana and Richie, who seem to keen to rise to fill Franco and Rhoda’s shoes. What dark secrets will she uncover next?
Annie’s wife Susannah is an energetic and determined young witch, who, just like Annie, knows how to laugh at herself when she messes up. When she’s not training for her professional sports job, she likes to jam on her guitar with her sister Danette.
Annie and Sherman’s daughter Athena has just come home from university, and has landed herself a job at the nearby science center. Like her brother and dad, she is not an occult sim, although she can work her own kind of magic with a chemistry lab. Annie loves swapping recipes with Ty, joking around with Susannah, and growing plasma fruit for her mum.
Athena’s half-sister Ruth is good and loves the outdoors, which is an interesting combination of traits for a young vampire! Click here for YA CAS spoilers.
In my game, Ruth is a vampire/witch hybrid, but since hybrids cannot be saved to the library or shared, the version I have uploaded is just a vampire. If you would like to add the witch occult back to her, you’ll need Nraas Hyrbid and Nraas Master Controller.
The family lives at 53 Rock Pool Park, next door to Athena’s work.
There is a nice view from the front garden. Some of this will eventually be obscured by other houses, but because this plot of land is higher up than those nearer the sea, parts of the bay should remain visible.
In the back garden, Athena grows ginseng, lavender, porcinis, onions, licorice, basil, buzzberry, and plasma fruit.

Kitchen, breakfast bar, and dining table.
At the moment this is a guest bedroom, but it will be Ruth’s when she is older.
The quick walk across the balcony to the bedroom will be about all the time outside her vampire skin will be able to tolerate, until the sun gets low in the sky, and then she will be able to sit in the fresh air and enjoy the view of the bay.
