Hank Goddard is the fiancé of Pauline Wan, who is living with him in Sunset Valley. He is similar to Don Lothario and Hal Breckenridge. He is described as the typical "beach bum," wearing a blue tank top with purple shorts and flip flops. He is engaged and living with Pauline Wan, but it is difficult to get them to marry, because they both have the Commitment Issues trait and both aspire to be Heartbreakers. Hank works in the Law Enforcement career track as a Traffic Cop. With Story progression on, it's usual for Hank to take Pauline's surname, "Wan", if they marry each other.
In The Sims 3: Late Night, when entering a hotspot, a Sim may exclaim, "This is hotter than Hank Goddard that time he caught on fire!" Hank appears with Pauline on a poster on the sides of Divisadero Budget Books bookstore.
