Malcolm Landgraab IV is a pre-made playable Sim who lives alone in a large mansion in Bluewater Village, the default shopping district from The Sims 2: Open for Business. He has the same first name as his great grandfather, grandfather and father. When first played, he is at the beginning of the adult life stage, and has 3 skill points in Charisma.
Malcolm owns two community lots, Club Dante and Electronics Supercenter. Even though the Electronics Supercenter sells TV sets, he does not own one. However, the house is very well furnished, with expensive furniture. Since Fortune Sims often want to buy furniture, this may complicate satisfying some of Malcolm's wants.
In the Landgraab family album, there is a picture of Malcolm and a woman who resembles Nina Caliente in the hot tub. Her face is not clearly visible, and Malcolm and Nina have no memories of one another, so players may handle this as they choose.
According to a picture in the family album, his parents died while he was a child, leaving him to be raised by his paternal grandparents, Malcolm Landgraab II and Marion Landgraab. Members of his family have appeared in The Sims for consoles and The Sims Bustin' Out.
It can be troublesome to have Malcolm get married, as his spouse and child(ren) will inherit the "IV" part of his last name, unless the player uses SimPE to edit it out, or his spouse is the one who proposes the marriage. He is the only pre-made Sim to own two community lots and the only one to own a club.
Strangely, Malcolm's skin tone is inconsistent with the skin tones of his ancestors. All of his grandparents have light skin (S1), both of his parents have tan skin (S2), and he has medium skin (S3). It is unclear how this could have happened, so it may have been an oversight by the developers.
While there is a picture of Malcolm with a woman in a hot tub, he has no gender preference at the start of the game. Malcolm wears eyeliner, a trait shared with a few other male Sims such as Morty Roth, Xander Roth, Jason Larson and Puck Summerdream. His name is technically spelled "Malcolm ," with an extra space, making his technical name Malcolm Landgraab IV. His father and grandfather also have this case.
When Malcolm's lot is first played, his bills will total §666. This may be an intentional reference to the mark of the beast, as the Landgraabs are often depicted as evil.
- ↑ Malcolm can't have memories of Nina because he will exist in any neighborhood the Bluewater Village shopping district is associated with, but Nina only exists in Pleasantview. Nina can't have memories of Malcolm because he won't be present if a player doesn't have Open for Business, or doesn't use Bluewater Village with Pleasantview.
