Neighborhood Pleasantview

Brandi Broke (née Newbie) is a pre-made female adult Sim residing in Pleasantview, a neighborhood shipped in The Sims 2. She is the daughter of Bob and Betty Newbie, from The Sims (who are both deceased at the start of The Sims 2 storyline). She has two sons, Dustin and Beau, from her marriage to the late Skip Broke, and soon after the player begins to play the Broke family it becomes clear that she is carrying her third child.

Brandi and her sons live in a small trailer in an out of the way corner of the neighborhood. She has a hectic life watching her rebellious teenage son Dustin, caring for Beau and steering him away from Dustin's bad choices, and being pregnant with her late husband's third child. According to her biography she is known for being kind-hearted, sometimes overly so.

BiographyEdit

Life leading up to The Sims 3Edit

Brandi is one of only two living pre-made adult Sims from Pleasantview that was not featured in The Sims 3 (the other being Cassandra Goth). Her parents, however, are shown to be teenagers in Riverview, so it is possible for her to be born in-game once they become young adults.

Despite being older than Cassandra Goth, Brandi does not make an appearance in The Sims, nor is she mentioned. Her family tree in The Sims 2, however, proves that she is in fact the daughter of Bob and Betty Newbie.

Life leading up to The Sims 2Edit

At the start of The Sims 2, Brandi and her sons live at 55 Woodland Drive. Upon first entering the game she wears a pink patterned halter top and tight blue jeans, and her black hair is pulled back with a yellow clip. She is the recently widowed mother of teenage Dustin, and toddler Beau. It becomes apparent very quickly that she is also carrying her third child.

At the beginning of the game she hasn't got much money, perhaps a result of losing her husband to a pool ladder accident, and therefore losing the income he'd brought in. However, she seems to have some expensive items in the house, such as the bed and the pinball machine. She did have a job as a Drive Through Clerk in the Culinary career track, but quit shortly after Beau's birth, possibly to raise him properly.

When the family is first played Brandi is 22 days away from becoming an elder. Due to this, some players believe she had Dustin as a teen, but that isn't possible unless cheats or hacks are used. Besides, her memories indicate that she was an adult when she had Dustin. Therefore, it can be assumed that she had access to the Elixir of Life at some point in her life.

She is not unique in this, as it has also been noted in Andrew Martin of Riverblossom Hills' Martin family.

Her relationship with each of the Caliente sisters is just short of the friend level, though she doesn't seem to have much in common with either of them. There is a high chance that Brandi, Darren Dreamer, and Nina Caliente will appear in the welcome wagon in The Sims 2 early in the game, since they are unemployed.

In this image and all other storytelling images of Brandi in her adult life, Brandi has an unused hairstyle. It's hard to tell, but the bangs are different from the hairstyle she has in-game, which is not unused. The fringe is thicker. Her unused hairstyle is shown in CAS in a trailer for The Sims 2.[1]

Brandi also appears in the trailer for The Sims 2: Open for Business. She is shown to be paying for something. She and her sons are the only pre-made family in Pleasantview that has no connection to the Goth family. In fact, no one from the Broke family even knows any member of the Goth family.

Brandi's Unborn Son(s)Edit

Main article: Unborn baby Broke

When the game starts it is revealed that Brandi is pregnant with her third child. However, due to there being no father, the baby will take Brandi's genetics, and have black hair instead of the blond hair that Skip passed down; and will always be male. Of course, the player may choose to change the baby's hair color when he is older. Usually, the baby boy turns into a toddler wearing a blue shirt, brown overalls, white shoes and socks.

There is an error with her memories in that she gave birth to Beau after Skip died, yet her third child is recognized by the game as his. Since Brandi could not have gotten pregnant with the third Broke child when she was already pregnant with Beau, Skip could not be the father unless he somehow impregnated her post-mortem. This, however, contradicts a picture in the family album that shows Brandi about to give birth with both Skip and Dustin present.

Dustin and Beau's geneticsEdit

Though it can be seen in the family tree that green-eyed Skip is the father of Dustin and Beau, Brandi's memories show memories of a green-eyed Skip Broke and a light blue-eyed Skip Broke. Beau and Dustin both have dark blue eyes. Using SimPE, looking in the Default family shows that there are two Skip Brokes, and the one that can be resurrected has green eyes. (This is similar to Olive Specter and Circe and Loki Beaker having memories of a different Nervous Subject.) So, the mistake here is that the biological father of Beau and Dustin (green-eyed Skip) is the resurrectable Skip, though light blue-eyed Skip, who cannot be resurrected, is in the majority of Brandi's memories. Therefore, the genetics of both Skip's eyes and Dustin and Beau's do not match.
