James and Kara Leary are old hippies from the '60s and have had a more... laissez faire approach to parenting. If you asked them, they love having their children around even if most of them are grown up.
Kara Leary is a pre-made Sim residing in Moonlight Bay with her husband and children. Usually, with story progression enabled, she will die in at least 5 days after the game starting. She has five points in guitar and two in cooking. A few days after she dies, James will die soon.
