Mortimer Goth lives in the Goth mansion with his daughter, Cassandra, and son, Alexander. His longtime wife, Bella, is missing, having been abducted by aliens, and has not yet returned.

Mortimer Goth was born outside of SimCity, in the Old Country, which could refer to a place such as England or an unknown rural area, or could be a way of saying "someplace else". His father moved the family to SimCity when Mortimer was young. He is the son of Gunther Goth and Cornelia Goth, husband of Bella Goth, and father of Cassandra Goth and Alexander Goth.

BiographyEdit

Life leading up to The Sims 3Edit

In The Sims 3, Mortimer is a child (7 days to teen) who lives with his parents Gunther and Cornelia Goth (née Crumplebottom). He doesn't know his aunt, Agnes Crumplebottom, very well. Mortimer Goth and Bella Bachelor are best friends. He is also friends with Michael Bachelor, Bella's brother. His traits are Grumpy, Ambitious and Artistic, and he is a B+ student who likes to read and paint. He starts out with one point of Logic skill. He is often angry or in a bad mood for no apparent reason, even more, so it seems, than his parents. This is probably due, at least in part, to his grumpy trait. He does however, seem to be able to grow out of this, as in The Sims and The Sims 2, he is described as "Cheerful and outgoing." Also, when he grows up, occasionally there is a bug where his thumbnail, portrait, and marker show himself as a kid. This is also shown in his relationship portrait and as icons for other Sims' wishes. By The Sims console, Mortimer Goth now has a purple suit and black shoes with a black mustache. He lives with his wife Bella Goth and their daughter Cassandra Goth in 5 Sim Avenue. He shares a 95+ with his wife and a 20+ with his daughter. He works as a B- Movie Star in the Entertainment Career Track. He likes to play chess, read books, water the plants and mourn at the tombstones.

Life leading up to The SimsEdit

Mortimer Goth, his wife, Bella, and his daughter, Cassandra, are first introduced in The Sims. He brings his Old Country upbringing into the modern age. He has an unusual fondness for insects. He starts as a Test Subject in the Science career track.

Life leading up to The Sims Bustin' OutEdit

In The Sims Bustin' Out, he lives in Goth Manor. They have a ghost problem. Here, he talks as if he is a spooky butler. When he is not working as a virus breeder, he spends his time synthesizing music. Mortimer looks slightly older in this game. Cassandra is notably absent in this game, this may be because she went to college (though this is not certain).

Life leading up to The Sims 2Edit

Between The Sims and The Sims 2, a lot happened in Mortimer's life. He rose through the ranks of his career from a Test Subject to a Mad Scientist, and became quite wealthy along the way. His parents, Gunther and Cornelia, both perished in two different fires. Bella also gave birth to another child, Alexander Goth. Bella got abducted by aliens, and is still missing at the present time. He strongly disapproves of his daughter being engaged to the town's Casanova, Don Lothario. His widow's peak hair in The Sims seems to have appeared in some photos, but he wears it differently now. Mortimer is retired and dating Dina Caliente, and is close to dying of old age. He has 9 cooking points and maxed cleaning and logic, which are the skills needed for the Mad Scientist position. Mortimer enjoys reading, playing chess and occasionally practicing piano.

Strangely, if testingcheatsenabled is used to set his age to something different, he will have blonde hair. Also, when viewing his Sim DNA in SimPE, he has genetics for brown hair. This is very odd considering that both other games in the series and storytelling pictures in The Sims 2 show him with black hair, so he may have dyed it.

Mortimer is known to be the shoving Sim when a Sim from another household stargazes with a telescope during the day. This is because Mortimer is the first playable Sim created in Pleasantview. If Mortimer or Cassandra stargaze with a telescope, Nina Caliente will be the shoving Sim instead, unless John Burb is moved into the neighborhood.

Bella's Disappearance Edit

The most significant event in Pleasantview's storyline is the mysterious disappearance of Mortimer's wife, Bella. All evidence points to alien abduction, but it's interesting to note that she was last seen "scaling the deck" of Don Lothario's condo. Could it have been that she was looking through Don Lothario's telescope when she was taken by the aliens? Bella's disappearance was well-publicized, with "missing persons" notices appearing on milk cartons and in papers. This publicity has led to many theories and rumors, and even supposed sightings in Strangetown. As of The Sims 2, she remains missing. Since Bella is gone, she and Mortimer are no longer considered to be married, and Mortimer can remarry. The story does not explicitly state how this came to be. Mortimer is now romantically involved with Dina Caliente, unaware she is only dating him to gain access to his fortune. Oddly, Mortimer wants to flirt with Dina's sister, Nina, when the game starts out. He also has a positive memory of Bella's abduction.

Mortimer Goth in Other Games Edit

Mortimer Goth is perhaps one of the most well known Sims in its series. He appears in other games such as The Sims: Bustin' Out, and the TV family on The Sims 2 for GameBoy Advance.

  • In SimCity 4 there is a Sim with a likeness of Mortimer, however the name is different.[clarification needed]
  • He, his wife Bella Goth, his daughter, Cassandra Goth, the Tragic Clown and other characters are downloadable on the official SimGolf site. When the The Sims theme is chosen, there's a different Mortimer and Bella. His occupation in SimGolf is an undertaker, he speaks in a very dark and Gothic tone, much like his daughter, Cassandra, such as frequently saying the words "death" and "kill".
  • Mortimer is briefly mentioned by Bella in The Sims 2 for PSP in two of her secrets, both of which claim she only married him for his money.
    • This somewhat contradicts the fact that the Goth family net worth in The Sims (not considering the Goth Sr. household) is just average, and they have less money in family funds than the Bachelor family had in The Sims 3. In an interview originally posted on the (now defunct) The Sims 2 website where Bella claims that she really loves Mortimer and her family, plus the high (and mutual) relationship scores for Mortimer and Bella in all versions of The Sims further aggravates the contradiction with the PSP version of The Sims 2.

Notes Edit

  • Mortimer Goth's appearance is likely based on that of Vincent Price, a famous American horror actor.
  • "Mort" is French for death. Mortimer's name seems fitting because the Goths seem to be somewhat obsessed with death (as evidenced by their graveyard). The name is even more fitting in The Sims 2, in which Mortimer is closer to death.
  • There is a song under the Jazz section named "Mortimer's Touch."
  • His family is the only family to be in every The Sims game.
  • He is the only Sim to appear alive and playable in all three base games.
  • In the Portuguese version of the original The Sims, it is said that he hates garlic. This is mostly likely in compliance with the instructions left for the translators in the game files ("Notes: This is the bio of Mortimer Goth. bio alludes to the Mortimer being a vampire. This reference can be changed for localization. Appears when the picture of his face is clicked on the Select a Family Screen.").
  • He was the first Sim created in Pleasantview, as his NID is 1.
  • His memories in The Sims 2 show him having many promotions in the Science career before marrying Bella, even though in the The Sims, he is at the start of the science career track while already married with a child. This may just be a mistake by the producers that was overlooked when the game was prepared for release; or it could be an example of "retroactive continuity".
  • Mortimer is one of the few pre-made playable Sims to appear on the cover of The Sims 3.
  • In The Sims 3: Late Night, when a sim is in the Film career, they might get the opportunity "See Screening of Mortimer Goth and the Chalice of Water".
  • In The Sims 3, Mortimer is a few days younger than Kaylynn Langerak, but in The Sims 2, Mortimer is an elder while Kaylynn is an adult.
  • In The Sims Medieval, there's a song on the lute called Lament for Mortimer.
  • One of loveseats that The Sims 3: Pets added is Goth Family Loveseat. Its description says that it was designed by Mortimer Goth.

Quotes from SimGolfEdit

  • Golf will be the death of me.
  • A brief respite for gloom.
  • What good is life without pain, PARTNER?
  • I'll die on this shot.
  • I'll die painfully on this shot.
  • I'm dead.
  • I'm dead and can't ever come back to life.
  • Go ahead and kill me!!
  • This kills any chance I had for par.
  • This kills my chance for par!
  • This DATA would make a sturdy tombstone.
  • That DATA is too ugly for even the Newbies.
  • Ahh! A perfect sacrificial DATA!
  • This waiting is like purgatory.
  • I'm bone dry over here.
  • I'm dying for a bite to eat.
  • I'm dead on my feet.
