Malcolm Landgraab is a pre-made Sim featured in The Sims 3, The Sims 3 for console and The Sims 4. He is the son and heir of Geoffrey and Nancy Landgraab who belong to the rich and powerful Landgraab family.
Life leading up to The Sims 3Edit
Malcolm appears in The Sims 3 as the only child of Geoffrey and Nancy Landgraab. He would presumably be an elder, or close to becoming one, by the time of The Sims 2, but he does not appear in The Sims or The Sims 2.
He lives with his parents in a large house in Sunset Valley. He is different from his parents, as he is a good, ambitious bookworm. However, he is more like his father, a family oriented doctor, than his mother, who is a snobby businesswoman. According to his mother's bio, she often neglects Malcolm because she is overly concerned with her looks, job, and social life.
In his relationship panel, Malcolm starts off with a higher relationship with his father than with his mother. Also, if his father gets promoted, he will likely get a lifetime wish to become a surgeon, but he doesn't get any related wishes if his mother gets promoted. This suggests that he aspires to be more like his father than his mother.
Life leading up to The Sims 3 (console)Edit
Malcolm lives on the cliff-side of Moonlight Bay on a large lot with his wife Hannelore, and his teenaged son Adrien. The house includes a pool and many palm trees. The description of the home describe it as an 'exotic getaway'. Malcolm and his family are rich and they are presumed to own many of the businesses in and around Moonlight Bay, notably the library and science lab.
Malcolm possesses both the Snob and Good traits. Malcolm moved from Sunset Valley for a better life; and desires to provide his son, Adrien, the best for him so that Adrien may be as successful as he is. Presumably following his mother as a successful businesswoman, or following his father's own footsteps, Malcolm pursued a high level job in the Political career. When the game is started, Malcolm is a Local Representative, and often is the boss of the player's Sim when they join the career. Malcolm and Tyler Vasquez are co-workers.
Life in The Sims 4Edit
In The Sims 4, Malcolm is a teen living with his parents in Oasis Springs as a part of the alternate timeline. He and his family didn't stay in Sunset Valley until he moved to Moonlight Bay. Unlike in The Sims 3, Malcolm takes after his mother more than his father in personality, having the Snob and Evil traits, and wanting to be a Public Enemy.
Malcolm is the son of Nancy Landgraab who, like most other Landgraabs, expects her son to inherit her family's dynasty. (His father, Geoffrey took the Landgraab name when he married Nancy.) However, he looks unhappy about the thought and obviously isn't happy about the family rivalry. The connection between this branch of the family and the one in The Sims 2: Open for Business is unspecified, but it is likely that he and Malcolm Landgraab III are contemporaries.
He may be the great-nephew of Malcolm Landgraab I, the second cousin of Malcolm Landgraab II, the cousin of Malcolm Landgraab III and the second cousin of Malcolm Landgraab IV, but that is not certain. It is also possible that he is a younger version of the Malcolm Landgraab in The Sims Bustin' Out and/or The Sims (console), married to Mom, and therefore the father of Mimi and Dudley Landgraab, but that is speculative.
Furthermore, The Sims Bustin' Out states that he's a senator (mentioned in The Octagon's goals) although Bustin' Out doesn't have a Politics career and The Sims 3 console has him in the Political career. Also, his bio in PS3/Xbox 360 mentions he's from Sunset Valley implying that the Mac and PC Malcolm is a younger version from The Sims console.
- Malcolm can be considered to be one of the Sims to originate from a console game and appear on a Mac and PC game.
- In The Sims 3 and The Sims 3 (console), Malcolm doesn't have the Evil trait whereas he does in The Sims 4. This may be a reference to The Sims Bustin' Out as there is a villain in that game named Malcolm Landgraab.
