Lyla Grunt (née Vandermorgan) is a pre-created deceased Sim in Strangetown in The Sims 2. She is the mother of Tank Grunt, Ripp Grunt and Buck Grunt, and the ex-wife of General Buzz Grunt. She is the daughter of A.P. Vandermorgan and Jacqueline Vandermorgan, both of Strangetown.
Lyla has the Romance aspiration and her zodiac sign is Libra. Her notable interests include in paranormal, money and weather. Lyla also has a hidden Family aspiration token. An image of Lyla in her elder stage can be found in her character file, and can be seen using SimPE. Unlike most pre-made deceased Sims, Lyla has personality points and was created at the same time as the rest of her family.
Life leading up to The Sims 2Edit
Before she died, she divorced from General Buzz and moved out. The reason they broke up is unknown, and Lyla's whereabouts after she moved out of the Grunt house is also not known. It appears that Lyla met Olive Specter at some point because Lyla mysteriously died in Olive's garden, where her grave can be found. Her ghost is that of a Sim who died of electrocution.
Strangely, her family have no memories of her death. It is not clear if this is a developer oversight, or if the family were intended to be unaware of her death. With Nightlife or a later expansion, the player is able to move her grave to a different lot, which will give her sons a memory of her death. Olive illogically has a memory of Lyla dying long before her own son Nervous Subject was born, who is now an adult. This is inconsistent with the timeline of Lyla leaving her family after Buck Grunt grew up to be a child.
Before Lyla died, she was 36 days from being an elder, meaning that she may have used the Elixir of Life shortly after entering adulthood. According to SimPe, Lyla had unlinked relations with Creon and Willow Nigmos, Earl E. and Tim Lee DeMise, Hugh and Lou Thanasia, Ichabod Specter, Peponi and Lerato Muenda, as well as townie Bella Goth.
Lyla's face is corrupted, and her outfit data is in an old and invalid format. As a result, she will appear in game (either as a ghost or living) entirely bald, with a randomly generated face and random clothing. Her corrupted appearance is genetic. If Lyla has more children after being resurrected, they will inherit her corrupted facial features. Changing her appearance with a mirror has been known to make her appearance looked even more glitched.
Lyla's true appearance features tanned skin, dark blue eyes and blonde hair. She also wears a very elegant pink dress in her thumbnail, but her clothes and hairstyle in the image where she moves out of the Grunt house is different - she wears a cyan tank top and brown trousers. Her outfit data also contains another casual outfit; a red dress with boots and long black coat.
