Hero Monty (née Arlecchino) is the deceased wife of Antonio Monty and the mother of twins Benedick Monty and Beatrice Monty. She is completely unplayable without the use of hacks such as SimPE. Hero resided, during her lifetime, in Veronaville, one of the neighborhoods that ships with the game. When the neighborhood is first played, Antonio and the twins are in the Veronaville Family bin. Hero potty trained Beatrice and taught her how to walk and talk. She also taught Benedick how to walk. According to the memories of her immediate family members, Hero died not long after Benedick and Beatrice aged into children. She is most likely the last Sim who died in Veronaville before the start of the game. This can be seen when comparing Romeo and Juliette's memories.
Originally Hero may have been meant to live as she has grandparents in her family tree and her parents died as adults like all deceased parents of living Veronaville Sims. Another hint towards this is her nephews Mercutio and Romeo recognize her as their aunt which is impossible without editing as she is a relative by marriage, and this only happens otherwise (with the exception of Olivia Monty and Caliban Capp) among living pre-made Sims. Also, she is one of the first Sims to be created in Veronaville. It is also hinted in the family bio along with her husband and son's bios that she might have been a casualty in the feud between the Capps and Montys.
Some people believe that Hero died from starvation and others think that she is killed by somebody of the Capp family, but unofficially to prove. Because there is no information to explain how she died, and there is no ghost of her to see if she died from drowning, starvation, electrocution etc., she thus cannot be resurrected in-game, because her gravestone is not in Veronaville.
Hero falls in love with Claudio in Much Ado About Nothing. She is wronged by Don John and Borachio, and is abandoned at the altar by Claudio; she fakes her death until her name is cleared.

- ↑ Her NID indicates that she was the thirteenth Sim made in Veronaville. Typically living Sims are usually created first, and then deceased Sims are created afterwards.
