Main Characters

Madeline Sycamore

  • Hypothetical Voice Casting: Hynden Walch
  • The Beautiful Elite: Is seen as beautiful and wealthy.
  • Sheltered Aristocrat: Downplayed; She's not truly an aristocrat, instead a member of The Beautiful Elite, but she still has been rather sheltered, especially so due to her illness.
  • Split Personality: Has several, and which one she's in depends on the timeline. Handled surprisingly realistically: Madeline knows about her other personalities but doesn't share their memories, has no control over which personality is at the forefront, and only one of them is in control of the body at a time. Which one she's in all depends on the timeline.
    • Split-Personality Makeover:
      • The most romantic and hot blooded of the personalities, Rosa Caliente, has a hairstyle reminiscent of Jessica Rabbit.
  • The Mistress: Is often this in stories featuring affairs. Justified as this is usually how the timelines were altered.
  • Time Master: Unwillingly is this, as she has no control over her timeline altering abilities.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Through her time-bending powers she got when she was a teenager, she's messed up several timelines in the Sims, and now needs to set things straight.
  • Dimensional Traveler: Can hop between timelines.
  • Shrinking Violet: Has a hard time speaking up for herself.
  • Ill Girl: Fevers are common for her.
  • Missing Mom: She lives with only her father. What happened to her mother is never explained.
  • Anti-Hero: Is not above partaking in affairs or causing drama for the sake of setting a timeline straight.
  • Advertisement:
  • Daddy's Girl: Stil lives with her father despite her being a young adult, all because he's too afraid to let her go, and he doesn't know what he'll do without someone to spoil.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Much of her wardrobe is pink, and, in her main personality, she's very soft spoken and feminine.

Augustine Sycamore

  • True Companions: The only person Madeline can truly count on to be with her, no matter what dimension she's in.
  • Nice Guy: He's pretty benevolent, despite having to handle the stress of his daughter's interdimensional travels.
    • Papa Wolf: That being said, you don't mess with his daughter.
  • Overprotective Dad

Pleasantview Arc

Daniel Pleasant

  • Adultery: Quickly falls in love with Madeline and has an affair with her. It only gets better from there on out, when they meet at the club and begin dating.
  • Awful Wedded Life: A workaholic wife who you haven't truly loved in years, a daughter who is constantly ill, and another daughter who seems to live for rebellion.
  • The Charmer: Has the Alluring trait and uses it to his advantage, starting an affair with a young woman he admires almost immediately when the two re-encounter each other at a club.
  • Dead Sparks: His relationship with Mary-Sue is completely in the red, and only is driven further down when he starts his affair.
  • Cannot Keep a Secret: Despite his attempts, he despises his relationship with his wife so much that he gives Madeline a Big Damn Kiss right in front of her.
  • Hidden Disdain Reveal: While walking home from Madeline's house after checking up on her fever, he reveals that he hasn't felt true love for Mary-Sue since Angela and Lillith were 3. To put that in perspective, the two are currently high school juniors.
  • Parental Favoritism: Seems to favor Angela.
  • Sympathetic Adulterer: Daniel, with the Pay Cheating Unto Boring variety. That being said though, he's also seen as a scumbag for how he treats the affair like an Open Secret.

Mary-Sue Pleasant

  • Hypothetical Voice Casting: Her voice actress would be Teresa Gallagher (best known as Nicole Watterson on The Amazing World of Gumball.)
  • Workaholic: Is always filling out reports for work when she's home, and, when she's done with her reports, she works on improving her skills so she can get a promotion. She claims to be doing this to grow a safety net for their narcoleptic daughter, but they've been well past that stage for a while.
  • The Perfectionist: Is this, which is another reason why she's always so focused on her work.
  • Easily Forgiven: Forgives Daniel for his affair initially, as she believes she was overreacting.
  • Forgiven, but Not Forgotten: When he's revealed to have tried to get Madeline pregnant, that's what leads to her going Ax-Crazy.
  • Ax-Crazy: Hates Madeline for being her home wrecker so much, that when it's revealed Daniel had sex with her she snaps and tries to kill her by literally putting her into an eternal sleep, which is only worsened by a fever.
    • Can't Get Away with Nuthin': This fever causes Daniel to visit her, and, on the way back, decide to divorce Mary-Sue once and for all, thus destroying her motivation of repairing their relationship.
  • Yandere: Shows shades of this. Gets jealous pangs when she's at work for no reason at all and is very tense whenever he's home late. When she actually finds out about the affair, she snaps and plots to kill his mistress. It's especially frightening when you remember the lack of affection between them.

Angela Pleasant

  • Retcon: In the files for the Sims 2, the game where the family originally debuts, she's actually the older one. Excusable though, due to them only being a matter of minutes apart in the first place.
  • Youngest Child Wins: Is the youngest of the Pleasant twins, and is the preferred child in the family.
  • Ill Girl: Has narcolepsy. This causes her to be spoiled by her parents.
  • Womanchild: Is only this when having a "sleep attack." Is implied to be this by the toys in her bedroom and the way the TV in her room is always set to the Children's Network.
  • Dark Feminine Light Feminine: The light to Lillith's dark.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: Light, fluffy, and sweet compared to Lillith's dark, brooding and edgy.

Lillith Pleasant

  • Hypothetical Voice Casting: Michaela Dietz (Amethyst from Steven Universe)
  • Dark Feminine Light Feminine: The dark to Angela's light.
  • Delinquent: Is frequently shown to be out of the house during the late hours of the night and early hours of the morning. Also skipping and leaving school early without her parent's knowledge.
  • Genius Ditz: You'd expect her to constantly be a sleepy ditz, but she actually has good grades thanks to her father's tutelage.
  • Rebellious Spirit: Absolutely hates school, and fails on purpose just to annoy her parents and teachers.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: Are identical twins (however Lillith's makeover makes that seem untrue) but Lillith is an angsty delinquent who's a realist, while Angela is kind and rule following, but ditzy.

Nina Caliente

Dina Caliente

Katrina Caliente

Don Lothario

  • The Casanova: Every one of his roommates knows he's this, but don't mind it. He's involved with Dina and Katrina before the end of their arc, and the reason why it ends is he'd set his sights on Rosa next.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome

Rosa Caliente

One of Madeline's alternate personalities, she's the most romantic of them.
  • Screw This, I'm Out of Here!: Does this when Don gets both Dina and Nina pregnant.
  • Drama Queen: Flirts with Don for about 5 minutes before he starts flirting with Dina, then gets absolutely heartbroken
