Neighborhood Belladonna Cove

Magdalena Contender ( /ˌmæɡdəˈlnə kənˈtɛndər/) (née Destraga) is one of the pre-made deceased ancestral Sims who resided during her lifetime in Belladonna Cove, the neighborhood shipped with The Sims 2: Apartment Life. She was the daughter of Maurus and Teigra Destraga, the wife of Santana Contender, the mother of Isabel Baldwin (née Contender), and the grandmother of Sofia and Marcus Baldwin. Magdalena is completely resurrectable, even though she doesn't have a grave. She has the Knowledge aspiration, and the Taurus zodiac sign. As far as personality, Magdalena is very playful, and a little bit neat and outgoing. But she is quite lazy and somewhat grouchy.

According to Magdalena's SimDNA in SimPE, her hair was blonde before it turned grey. According to her age data, she had 12 days left in the elder life stage when she died. Magdalena uses the 14th Maxis face template in Create a Sim, except the ears and nose which use the 27th face template. Also the jaw is longer on teenage, adult, and elder females than on the default template, and shorter on teenage, adult, and elder males. This may mean that the jaw was genetically passed down, as this oddity generally only occurs on Sims whose facial features were genetically passed down.

Magdalena's SimDNA in SimPE shows that her recessive alleles are for red hair and green eyes. Unlike several other married ancestors from Apartment Life who have memories of their spouses, she only has Mystery Sim memories. However Magdalena still has memories of giving birth to Isabel, and her getting engaged and married. Strangely, she has the memory of meeting her granddaughter Sofia, but she doesn't have the memory of meeting her grandson Marcus. Deceased Sims who can be resurrected in-game will usually receive the memory of meeting their grandchildren, regardless if they have not actually met each other physically.
