- Tristan is likely a spoof of Edward Cullen from Twilight. Like Edward, he has a possible human love interest and enjoys staying up late to play an instrument (a guitar for him and a piano for Edward). Both he and Edward are also brooding vegetarians—meaning a vampire that does not drink human blood in Twilight.
- According to his bio, he has several first dates, however, he has no romantic or ex-relationships at the start of the game.
- Like all other Sims of Moonlight Falls, he has the "New Friend" moodlet at the start of the game.
