Life Leading Up to The Sims 3Edit
Nervous returns in Midnight Hollow as a toddler with his mother. He has not yet learned any of the toddler skills. In his family biography, he is hinted to be the son of the Grim Reaper, as he is described as "something to remember him by" after her relationship with Grim ended quickly.
Life Leading Up to The Sims 2Edit
Nervous Subject lives with the Beaker family since his adoption by Loki and Circe Beaker. Although some people believe that Nervous was adopted after he was taken away by the social worker, his family tree states that Nervous is still the son of Olive Specter and doesn't recognize the Beakers as family. He and Ophelia Nigmos are cousins, but they do not know one another when Strangetown is first played.
He has a black mohawk hair and wears a gray T-shirt with a skeleton with loose bones on it, blue-gray jeans and sandals. He is 27 days away from being an elder.
Nervous twitches and blinks frequently. At one point during his early childhood, Nervous was taken away from Olive by the Social Worker because she neglected him and was later adopted by Loki and Circe Beaker, Strangetown's "mad scientist" couple; however they have no relation to him on his family tree. According to his memories, Nervous may have "moved in" with the Beakers during his childhood years. It should be noted that while it is assumed that the Grim Reaper is his father, it is not shown through his family tree, which simply shows Olive Specter as his mother. However, the Grim Reaper is the only person Olive Specter has a memory of WooHoo with. Nervous lacks most of his mother's genetics; on closer examination, it is clear he is simply a clone of the Grim Reaper.
When Nervous's gender preference is displayed using testingcheatsenabled, or checked in SimPE, it can be seen that he has a slight distaste for women, though, as with all Sims, the player can change this during gameplay by having him perform romantic interactions with female characters.
Nervous Subject's aspiration is Family, and when the Beakers' lot is first played, he will often roll wants to flirt or hug, even though he will not like doing these things. He may also want to get married, which may be due to his aspiration being very low. For the first 7 or 8 game hours, the game will continually push "Stuff Face" actions on him while he is home, regardless of how hungry he is. This is a result of a script used for tutorial purposes, so he will see cockroaches (which are scripted as well since the house is fairly clean) and go into aspiration failure, unless the player diverts him away from them in time.
He does not appear to be very popular. His only friend is Pascal Curious, although his lifetime relationship with him is only moderate. He also has a reasonably good relationship with Circe Beaker, but doesn't like Loki very much. Nervous will often wander onto the Curious lot when Pascal is about to give birth.
If Nervous has any children, most of them will have brown eyes, light skin and black hair, even if the other Sim has dominant genetics for those features. His facial features are somewhat similar to General Buzz Grunt's, but Nervous' are much more customized.
According to Olive's memories, she was an elder when she had Nervous, which would not have been possible in normal gameplay. Also her memories reveal that Lyla Grunt died before Nervous was born, meaning that Sims who are younger than him, such as the Smith and Grunt siblings, were actually born before him.
There is another Nervous hidden in Olive's memories. This is the Nervous to which Olive remembers giving birth.
Life Leading Up to The Sims 2 (PSP)Edit
Nervous is no longer around except as a restless ghost in Bella's mansion, Espiritu Estate. Emily Emory tells the player Nervous was always short on money and signed up as a test subject for the Beakers. One day, he was so miserable he was killed by one of the machines. After Nervous' death, the Beakers even kidnapped a garbage man for their tests. It is indicated that he once had a girlfriend named Annie Howell: the player soon discovers that she is unaware of his death, and has assumed that he left her.
