Herb Oldie is a pre-made playable Sim in Pleasantview from The Sims 2. He is the elderly, outgoing, adoptive father of Mary-Sue Pleasant. He and his wife Coral are available in the Pleasantview family bin to be played. When the family is first moved onto a lot, he is on his fourth day as an elder.
He is the son of Myron and Irma Oldie, who are both deceased before the start of The Sims 2 story-line. Herb married Coral, and they are the parents to Mary-Sue, who they adopted when she was a toddler. His memories say that he and Coral had WooHoo before adopting Mary-Sue, which may mean that they tried for a baby, but couldn't conceive before adopting her.
Mary-Sue went on to marry Daniel Pleasant. The couple had twin daughters, Angela and Lilith, together. For unknown reasons, Herb hasn't met his son-in-law yet despite him and his daughter being married for quite a long time. He and Coral can have their Golden Anniversary when the game starts.
Despite being a Romance Sim, Herb has been happily married to Coral most of his life so far without ever committing infidelities. He also has positive memories of engagement and marriage. Interestingly, it would appear that he quit or was fired from his job as a businessman as opposed to retiring, however if you make him try to join the business career he can start off at level 5, Executive. Also he has enough skills to reach level 6. He and Coral, along with Olive Specter, are the only living pre-made Sims in the base game that don't have grandparents.
Herb is the only pre-made playable Sim in Pleasantview that does not have a mismatched zodiac sign. He has the same personality as Dina Caliente. Herb's eye color is not the same as that of either of his parents. This is because he was made in Create a Sim. Though an in-universe explanation could be that some of his ancestors had green eyes. According to Herb's SimDNA in SimPE, he had natural red hair, as did his wife.
