Nina Caliente is a pre-made, playable Sim who is featured in The Sims 2, The Sims 2 (console), The Sims 3 Barnacle Bay DLC and The Sims 4.

In The Sims 2, she lives in a small condo in Pleasantview, along with her twin sister, Dina. In The Sims 2 for console the two still live together, now in a larger home known as Jugen House, alongside Don Lothario and Toothless Joe. It is ambiguous as to whether The Sims 2 for console takes place before or after the PC version, or indeed whether they are part of the same continuity at all. In both games, Nina is an adult.

She did not appear in The Sims 3 or its expansions, but was available as part of the official downloadable world Barnacle Bay, living with Dina and a new roommate, Luisa Libros. Her bio implies that the events in Barnacle Bay take place after Pleasantview in The Sims 2; however, she is a young adult in The Sims 3, making her technically younger than her The Sims 2 incarnation.

Despite The Sims 4 taking place in an alternative timeline to the first three generations of the game, Nina once again appears in the base game. In the new continuity, she lives in Oasis Springs with Dina, their alternate mother Katrina, and Don. Once again, Nina is in the young adult life stage.


Life leading up to The Sims 2Edit

Both sisters are romantically involved with the engaged town womanizer, Don Lothario; apparently each without the other's knowledge. Both Nina and Don have memories of having known one another as teens. Nina starts the game unemployed; she had a job in the Slacker career track, but did not manage to keep it long. She has long red hair and wears a black halter top with pink cargo pants, though when the game starts, she is in her swimwear, a blue bikini. Nina is presumably the elder twin, as in both twins' memories, Nina always grew up first. Her mother died when she was a child and her father died when Nina and Dina were adults.

Nina and Dina are the daughters of Flamenco Caliente and Nighat Caliente (née Al Mahmoud), now deceased, both also of Pleasantview. The sisters are also part alien in their paternal lineage (¼ Alien, ¾ Sim): their grandfather, Nestor Caliente, gave birth to their father, Flamenco, after being abducted and impregnated by Pollination Technician 7, making him their grandfather. She and Brandi Broke are not friends, but their relationship isn't far short of that level. Also, if she catches her sister with Don, her relationship with Dina can be mended quickly, however it may take some time with Don.

While Dina is considered the gold digger, Nina does seem to share some of her money-loving qualities. She is extremely interested in money, fashion, and traveling—all expensive and luxurious things, and is implied in the Sims 2 Console to be "the brains" of the operation. The operation could very well refer to their plan to get rich men's Simoleons.

The sisters are both of Arab descent on their mother's side, corresponding to her former name Al Mahmoud. They are of Spanish descent on their father's side. Despite being one quarter alien, Nina and her sister lack any genetics for the alien skin tone. There is a chance that Nina, Darren Dreamer, and Brandi Broke will appear in the welcome wagon in The Sims 2 early in the game, since they are unemployed.

Life leading up to The Sims 2 (console)Edit

In The Sims 2 for consoles, Nina is the brains of the two sisters. She someday wishes to study medicine but is not employed. Like her sister, she has the romance aspiration.

Life leading up to The Sims 3Edit

In The Sims 3, Nina appears in the downloadable neighborhood Barnacle Bay, along with Dina. It appears that they moved there after Pleasantview. When the game begins she is at level 1 in the Sports career. She starts out with 10 skill points in Charisma and 8 in Writing, which would make her a good candidate for the Communications major if The Sims 3: University Life is installed. If The Sims 3: Late Night is installed, she and her sister are 4 star celebrities.

Nina has the Super Popular Lifetime Wish in The Sims 3. This is somewhat odd, as it doesn't match the Romance aspiration she had in The Sims 2, though the Flirty trait does give her romantic tendencies. Her portrayal here also contradicts that she was very shy and serious in the original game, the opposite of her sister in personality, while here she and Dina have almost the same traits. This situation suggests that creators made a mistake while creating them by swapping their personalities.

As in The Sims 2, she and her sister are involved with the same men, this time they also are, with Alec Trebo, Juan Jr Inkbeard and Jeff Smith, causing some tension in their household. Her appearance is similar to what it was in The Sims 2, though now she has a slightly different hairstyle and a different outfit.

Life leading up to The Sims 4Edit

Nina reappears in Oasis Springs and lives with her sister Dina, her mother Katrina, and Don Lothario. She is a young adult, 20 days away from becoming an adult. She is friends with her mother and sister, and acquaintances with Don. The family bio implies that Don and her mother are romantically involved, however this is not actually the case in game. The bio carries the further implication that Don will eventually become involved with Nina and Dina as well, as in other games.

She is unemployed at the start of the game, and has two skill points in Mischief. Like her sister, she has one major personality difference from the original timeline: this version of Nina is very lazy, while the original Nina was highly active and athletic. She does, however, share her romantic inclinations, her hot-headedness, and her tendency towards mischievous behavior.

A Sim with this personality would normally be a Virgo.

Nina's personality in The Sims 2 is the exact inverse of her twin sister Dina's: for example, Nina has 8 Neat/Sloppy points while Dina has 2, Nina has 2 Shy/Outgoing points while Dina has 8, etc.
