Life Leading Up to The Sims 3Edit
As a young adult, Darren Dreamer lived in a large, one-floor house in Lucky Palms. He has 20,000 simoleons in funds. At the start of the game, he is unemployed and has 7 skill points in Painting and 1 point in Handiness, Charisma, Cooking, and Athletic skills.
At this point, he is romantically interested in his "to-be" spouse, Darleen Matlapin. He is also quite well known in the town - he is a two-star celebrity; being distant friends with Aya Tanner, Morgan Claremont, Yolanda Shaw, Romon Tanner, Isadora Bard, Lennon Sosa and Sammi Claremont.
While Darren has black hair in The Sims 2, he has dark brown hair with black eyebrows and facial hair in The Sims 3, which could imply that his hair was dyed dark brown in The Sims 3.
Life Leading Up to The Sims 2Edit
He and his teenage son, Dirk, reside in the Dreamer household in the neighborhood of Pleasantview. Darren is a widower - his wife, Darleen Dreamer is deceased before the game begins. Because he has no memory of the fire that killed her, it is safe to assume Darren wasn't present when she died.
He's secretly and un-requitedly in love with his neighbor, and best friend, Cassandra Goth, but she is engaged to the town womanizer, Don Lothario, who he considers an enemy. In the game, Darren loves to paint and wants to be a full-time artist.
At one time, he had a job in the Business career track, but he quit around the time of Darleen's death. When first played, he has seven points of creativity skill, and is 15 days away from becoming an elder.
While Darren considers Don an enemy, Don just thinks of him as an "Acquaintance". This is not possible in normal gameplay, but can be arranged by editing the package files, which Maxis would have been able to do. Likewise, while unrequited-love relationships are possible in normal gameplay (but difficult to achieve), the type of relationship that Darren and Cassandra have would require the use of a package editor, or a hack.
There is a high chance that Darren, Brandi Broke, and Nina Caliente will appear in the welcome wagon in The Sims 2 early in the game, since they are unemployed. Darren has a hidden Family aspiration token.
If Darren invites Cassandra over when first playing the Dreamer family, there is a high chance that she will flirt with him autonomously. If this happens, then she will fall in love with Darren, which will instantly cause her to be cheating on Don Lothario, with him.
