Marissa Perez is a female Sim who lives in Riverview.
Marissa Perez was hired as stylist and arrived to the rich and famous Garvouis family's home, the family had agreed they needed someone who could keep up their appearances. Her artistic skills were notable and all family members were impressed by it. However, something was not planned, she developped a deep relationship with the patriarch of the family, Isaac Garvouis, she also liked the matriarch Constance Garvouis but they had a neutral relationship.
While Constance cared for the children and wrote books, Isaac was mostly inventing and Marissa loved to dance upstairs. Isaac needed a rest and invited Marissa to go with him to the Art gallery, they saw the things that were exposed but then Isaac started to behave in a flirtatious way, and since he was very attractive and muscular, Marissa reciprocated in the same way and they ended kissing and making out with a paparazzo taking shots of it. They went home and woohooed in the private hot tub.
She also changed Mags Newbie's appearance and due to it she got promoted.
Marissa felt bad for Constance, she was, after all the secret lover of Constance's husband. She also panicked because the paparazzi had seen her with Isaac and she was afraid of what paparazzi would say about it, thankfully Isaac paid them well to make sure they would not publish any scandal about the couple.
She had moved out of Isaac and Constance's home before their second child was born, Alfred, she didn't want to cause problems to the family and realized this was the best way to keep Isaac away from her. But she couldn't really resist to him, he visited her so many times that she got pregnant with his illegitimate child.
While Isaac's children were growing up, Marissa was raising Isaac's son on her own - Archibald Perez, he was born as en evil and mean-spirited kid and wouldn't really improve Marissa's reputation due to it. Isaac also hid it from all people in the neighborhood, and gave some gifts to keep Marissa's mouth shut, but it wasn't needed, Marissa loved him too much to reveal the scandal and gain any money with it.
She was bit lazy when caring for Archibald, his toddler skills were not totally learned, but she had a very good relationship with him since she was very playful, he grew up well moderately well - getting a Mooch streak. By this time, she started seeing Isaac in a different way since he was not helping her at all, niether financially or familiarly, she would have to get a new love to get out of her small house with no gorgeous furniture which her artistic streak hated. She began a relationship with Jebidiah Wilson and João Maria Quelime, Jebidiah wasn't ready for a relationship, so she went steady with João. By this time Archibald grew up into a teen and failed at school, she barely saw her celebrity boyfriend, later Marissa realized he had died by old age which was a sharp strike for her. Isaac had also came by this time and accidentally detonated some of her house furniture, this was a bad time for her and for her son. She later found out she was pregnant with João's child who was born under the name Caio, her reputation was worsened by it since people thought she was involved with too many men and she really was, there was no way to deny it. She had become more famous but not for the best reasons...
She went steady with Jebidiah Wilson, and many people didn't see this relationship approvingly. She also quickly got a daughter with him, Mariana.
By the time her daughter grew up into a toddler, her boyfriend Jebidiah died by old age. Once again, Marissa was all alone raising her children and now considered herself unlucky in love and gave up.
Marissa was surpised to see Isaac in the park, who had grow older into an elder. She thought there would be another romantic session, but this time, she was wrong. He came up to her and said he couldn't carry on with the affair because he loved Constance. He broke up with her and she was left heart-broken.
Marissa continued taking care of her children. Archibald grew up into a young adult, Caio into a teen and Mariana into a child. Archibald, as a Mooch, refused to leave and get a job. So, he remained there. Instead he also brought a girlfriend, Becky Bayer, to live with them. Meanwhile, Marissa grew up into an elder and Mariana into a beautiful, but old-fashioned teen. It upset Marissa very much that her daughter wouldn't follow her advice when it came to clothing. Marissa was growing more and more frustrated over her life, since she had three children and none of them cared enough to help her gain some money, and she never really succeeded in her stylist career, despite having talent. She finally started to put some blame on Isaac, who had now broken up with her but started the affair himself many years ago and now had left her with nothing. Even worse, for Marissa, Isaac was the man of her life, her true love. However, for Isaac, Marissa was just a flirt, a little but long extra-marital affair and nothing more. She had dreamt of seeing him leave Constance for her. She considered Isaac an hypocrite now.
Marissa, once more, tried to forget about her frustrations and soon fell for another man, the much younger Ryan, Isaac's son's wife's brother.
