Jocasta Bachelor doesn't have anybody on her side of the family tree, so a lot of people choose to give her magical roots! Here's my take on this mysterious family...





Persephone, Jocasta's mother and Bella and Mike's grandmother. To get her I mixed up Bella with Cassandra and Phoebe Adams (who has the same face template as Alexander, I believe). She actually doesn't have that many features in common with Bella besides the eyes, but she still retained an overall Bella-vibe.

Uriel, Jocasta's father and Mike and Bella's grandfather. At first glance he looks like a blonde Mike clone, but he's not! I mixed in Cynthia Kim's genetics so that the features wouldn't be identical, but still maintain a striking family resemblance.

Great Granny Cassandra. She looks a lot like her daughter but with Rainelle's eye shape. Yes, she was inspired by a certain Harry Potter character.



(The creator who said "do not share" about the eyebrows is no longer active in the community, nor are their downloads available, so I'm choosing not to follow this policy.)

Here's what she looks like as an adult:



The Jocasta I'm using was made by simcerly, who you can find here!

I'm not sure how much of them you'll get to see in my story, but I picture them as nomadic and traveling with some other magical families.

Whoa this is so cool! I'm in the midst of re-constructing my game (with maxis predecessors of course), and an extension to the Goth/Bachelor family tree is perfect! Thanks for sharing!

They're ADORABLE.

I wanna BE Granny Cassandra when I get to my elderly years. XD

Heheh, thanks! I might have to put that hair on her great-great granddaughter.

This is GREAT. I like all these sims. I think I'll download them all.
I don't know why, but they remind me of The Sims Makin'Magic.

I probably have to explain my first comment.
First of all, I really miss Makin'Magic. It was a great add-on. Magic in AL isn't that great. When I saw these sims, they reminded me of Makin'Magic.
Next. I think these sims would look good and appropriately in Magic Town.
Great Granny Cassandra is great:) I don't want her to be my granny, but I would like to meet her one day...
I'll write a separate comment about their last name, OK?

:D I understood what you meant; I was thinking of Magictown when I was figuring out these Sims. Makin' Magic did a better job of capturing the whimsical and magical atmosphere than the other games (the sidewalk/street on every lot in TS2 kind of ruins the witches castles and Bigfoot and the Witch Doctor's houses, IMO.) Magictown actually feels like a different world and culture than the normal TS1 neighborhood, whereas in TS2 your Sims can fly off to a tropical island and still be faced with the same cashiers from their local grocery store.

The last name
I'm thinking about the last name of Jocasta's family. Could it be... Strange? It's the last name of all townies from Makin'Magic. It could make them a part of Magic Town. I think it makes sense.

As an avid fan of matronly characters, I approve of Granny! Any plans on Milton and Enriqueta?

TS3 Enriqueta makes me laugh with her funky hat. I'd probably combine them with the grandma and grandpa in the TS1 graveyard.

I know right? Oh yes, I can definitely see the resemblances. Are you giving Jocasta's family a last name, though?

I was thinking "Belladonna", possibly?

What about Strega? (it's a pun.. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strega)

Does she even NEED a maiden name?
Okay i know, Phoebe and Frances got surnames (Adams and McCullough respectively) but would ALL witches\occultists\mystics\decadents have surnames?

And the "Descended from Mystics, Occultists, and Decadents" could be from a reincarnation, or maybe it comes from Milton's side, or Enriqueta's.

Or, what if Uriel was Uriel Belladonna, Persephone was Persephone Belladonna neé Strega, and Jocasta's Granny Cassandra was Cassandra Strega?

Kiki approves.
This is awesome! I remember you saying that you might make Cynthia Kim related to Jocasta somehow. Maybe her mother and Jocasta were sisters? Would be a nice way to make it seem less like EA threw a random CAS family at us, which is basically what they did.

Re: Kiki approves.
Thank you! I haven't quite figured out the relation yet, but I do think they are related in some way and that Jocasta might have a sibling or two. I also might make Rainelle a [distant] relative, since magical powers are genetic in my story (if it was easy as the game makes it I think EVERYONE would have them).

I love your take on their family. I'm grabbing them all! I know they'll be useful for.. something? someday. Thank you!

In my current TS3 save file, my Sim (Kirsten Steward)married Michael Bachelor and I took in the whole family. Inexplicably Supernatural witched out both Jocasta and Simis (I think). I know Jocasta is because she stands about in the living room conjuring apples. Bella had no magical blood in her and the house was crowded so I moved her out (she'd reached her YA life stage anyway). After reading so much F&R I kinda wanna get her back now! :(

Hi ! It's Myshra, from Tumblr. I prevent you that Uriel's download link seems to be broken ...

Hmm, it works for me. Try it again, I've updated the link.
