The story of Malcolm Markövertag's wedding and his relation to Kevin Burlin

« previous entry | next entry »

A while ago, I claimed to have found that Kevin Burlin and Malcolm Markövertag are cousins. I understand you all have been waiting breathlessly for the explanation of such a claim.

It started when Malcolm was introduced in the hood, as fiancé to Malva Montell. Normally, since Malva and Malcolm were engaged, I would just have moved her in after college. However, Malva wanted to marry a rich sim, so I introduced an unorthodox solution to fulfill that want.

What I did was this: I moved Malva back into her father's house after college, but didn't play the lot. Instead I opened Malcolm's lot and let him host the wedding, thus fulfilling Malva's want to marry a rich sim.



When opening Malcolm's lot, I checked his family tree out, since I know he's a playable sim, even though I've always treated him as a townie. I found that his mother was called Burlin when growing up, and there was my idea that he is related to Kevin. Since Kevin's name is Burlin, his father must have been the brother of Malcom's mother.

Tada! Kevin and Malcolm are cousins!



Admit it, you would never have guessed it! :)

Makes sense to me! Of course, I have discovered several family ties among my townies based either on their names or striking family resemblances...

Is that a sign of Sim Addiction we both share? :)

Hmm. I'm a bit confused. Is this a tie that actually exists in game, or one you've created based on the name? Either way, it sounds cool, and adds interest to the story :) Especially since this is a prosperity.

It's all in my head of course :) And also now in my Geneaology program (picture in between the boys portraits)
If I had that SimBlender program, I might make it be real in game

Very fun. I'm starting to find townies related too due to names or what not. It's fun to add a little flavor. :)

Yeah, even if it's only in my head, I like the thought of related townies anyway

Me too. Surely you don't have a town of completely unrelated people, especially when it's so small at the beginning. :D
