Alexander Goth is a pre-made Sim who appeared in The Sims 2 and The Sims 3 for Nintendo DS. He is the son of Bella and Mortimer Goth, and the brother of Cassandra Goth. Unlike the rest of his family, Alexander did not exist in The Sims and is a new addition to The Sims 2.
He reappeared in The Sims 3 for Nintendo DS, married to Cecilia Goth, though his family from The Sims 2 does not appear.
Life leading up to The Sims 2 Edit
Alexander first appears in The Sims 2, where he lives in Pleasantview with his father and older sister. He has pale skin and glasses. He seems to share his father's intelligence, despite his young age, and he is enrolled in private school. This could be the reason most players give him the Knowledge aspiration when he grows up. Due to the apparent age gap between him and his parents, it is believed that he was born just before Mortimer had aged to an elder, resulting in a large age difference between he and his sister, Cassandra Goth. However, there is a picture in the family album of Alexander being held as a baby by Cassandra when she was a teenager, and Mortimer is shown as an adult, so it's likely he was born a day or two before Mortimer aged.
He has a memory of being taught how to talk by Bella (however, Mortimer has memories of teaching him all three of his toddler skills), so she was probably abducted shortly before he became a child. He likes to play with toys, play chess, and occasionally play piano. When the family is first played, he is four days away from becoming a teenager.
If Mortimer is already dead by the time Alexander goes to college, his mother will be the parent who drops him off at his dormitory, even though she's supposed to be missing. This could hint that she is, in fact, alive somewhere, but it may just be the game mechanics.
Through SimPE, it is possible to see that the Fortune aspiration is initialized on him, hinting at the aspiration EA wanted for him, though the player can choose any aspiration they wish when he becomes a teenager.

Life leading up to The Sims 3 (Nintendo DS) Edit
Alexander re-appears in The Sims 3 for Nintendo DS, this time with a very different appearance and personality. He lives in the town of Beacon Bay, and is married to Cecilia Goth. His family bio states that he and his wife have lived in the town since the beginning, and that their gloominess is a result of having a father named Mortimer, and it can be assumed that his father is already dead in the game. He wears a top hat and suit, looking very much like his grandfather in The Sims 3. Strangely, his hair is orange, meaning that he may have dyed it. He is an acquaintance of Holly Alto, and his traits are Neurotic, Brave, Outgoing, and Ambitious. Unlike his father, and like his grandfather, he chose to work in the Business career instead of Science, and is a CEO at the start of the game. (In The Sims 2, his bio and skills give the idea that he is destined to be a scientist like his father.) He and Cecilia start off in the game with §50,000. Some think that because of his different appearance, personality, and lack of family tree, the creators of The Sims 3 for Nintendo DS have got his life completely wrong.
- There is a book in The Sims 3 and one in The Sims 3: Supernatural entitled Murder in Pleasantview and Baron Graff Van Gould. Both are written by an Alexander Goth, although it could not be the same Alexander, since Alexander's parents are children in The Sims 3. There is a possibility that the title of the first book is a hint as to more realistic ideas about dealing with the mystery of Bella Goth's disappearance, for players who wish to connect their story as close to The Sims 2 as possible, as alien abduction wasn't present in The Sims 3 until The Sims 3: Seasons.
