Elaine Austen is a pre-made Sim, living in Moonlight Bay. She is living with her pregnant mother, Heather Vasquez and her stepfather, Tyler Vasquez. She doesn't have a very good relationship with him, possibly because she believes him to have married her mother only for her money. She starts the game with a B grade at High School and 2 skill points in Logic. She is friends with Randy Monroe and on her first day at school, she most likely will bring him home (if her family is played).
