Simis Bachelor is one of the pre-created, yet unplayable Sims featured in The Sims 2 and one of the pre-created, playable Sims featured in The Sims 3. Though deceased when The Sims 2 begins, he can be seen in the relationship trees of playable Sims, Cassandra Goth and Alexander Goth, who are his grandchildren. He resided during his lifetime in the Sunset Valley neighborhood that ships with The Sims 3. Simis is the father of Bella and Michael Bachelor. He is also husband of Jocasta Bachelor. His parents are Milton and Enriqueta Bachelor. His name may be a pun on "Sim is bachelor."
Life leading up to The Sims 3 Edit
In The Sims 3, Simis Bachelor is an adult living with his wife, Jocasta, teenage son, Michael and younger daughter, Bella in Sunset Valley. He works in the Journalism as a Professional Blogger and although he has the Frugal trait, his lifetime wish is to "Live in the Lap of Luxury". He likes to spend time watching television.
His traits are Neurotic, Inappropriate, Handy, Frugal and Family Oriented, which is quite strange because Simis's aspiration is Romance in The Sims 2. The decision to not make him like a romantic Sim was probably done by developers to fit his character more into the typical "father" role. Other traits are completely unique.
Life leading up to The Sims 2 Edit
By the time the storyline has caught up to The Sims 2, Simis Bachelor is already deceased, as is his wife, Jocasta Bachelor. His son, Michael Bachelor, died of old age shortly after marrying Dina Caliente. This leave Simis's daughter, Bella Goth and his grandchildren, Cassandra and Alexander Goth as his only living descendants. Simis died in the elder stage, hinting that he could have died of old age, however his grave is nowhere to be found. For that reason, his cause of death is unknown, as he has no ghost, and he can't be resurrected under normal circumstances. Since Cassandra Goth has no memories of Simis and Jocasta's deaths, it is possible that they died around the time she was born. That would (retroactively) explain why they did not appear in The Sims. When editing him in SimPE his hair genes are of red hair.
This Sim has no character data and cannot be resurrected in-game.
See Resurrecting tips.
Simis's appearance didn't change much in The Sims 3. He still has short hair, but without a fringe, and his hair is brown rather than the gray it will be in The Sims 2. His clothes are similar to clothes he wears in The Sims 2. He wears a brown cardigan and blue shirt with white stripes. He also wears brown pants. He still has brown eyes, but they are a darker shade, instead of light brown as in The Sims 2.
