Zoe Patel is a pre-made playable Sim who appears in The Sims 4 base game, residing in Oasis Springs. She lives with her three roommates: Mitchell Kalani, J Huntington III, and Gavin Richards, all of whom are her acquaintances at the start of the game.
Zoe is a young adult, with 20 days remaining before she becomes an adult. She is the only member of her household to be unemployed at the start of the game. She has 2 points in the charisma skill and 1 point in the mischief skill. Judging by her last name and appearance, she possibly is of Indian descent.
Zoe seems to be based on Jess Day, the titular character from the sitcom New Girl, a television series about an outgoing and slightly eccentric woman living with three male roommates. Zoe's name is likely a reference to Zooey Deschanel, the actress who portrays Jess in the show (and whose name is pronounced "Zoe").
