Alex and Jean-Pierre are brothers but are a world apart. Both were born in Avignon to an Egyptian journalist and a French archaeologist; but Alex left France with his mother after she objected to his father's plans. He's never seen his brother since, and they've have barely talked to each other for the last 15 years. But after his father's untimely death, Jean-Pierre decides to return to his mother in search of help.

The Delacroix Family
Once a vastly wealthy and influential family in the south-east of France, the Delacroixes lost their power and land to the Castello family of Piedmont. Since then, they've been been embroiled in a bitter feud for at least five hundred years, with neither side intending to stop.

Alex (Alexandre) Delacroix
Alex is a young man wracked with worries and self-doubt, who hides behind a facade of jerkassery. Madly jealous of his brother's apparent success and his own lack of accomplishments, what will his brother's return bring?

- Grumpy
- Loves the Outdoors
- Natural Cook
- Neurotic
- Unlucky

Food- Key Lime Pie
Music- Pop
Colour- Blue

Jean-Pierre Delacroix
Unlike his brother, Jean-Pierre achieved moderate success as a violinist in the Orchestre de Paris.

Yet faced with death as one of the last remaining members of the Delacroix family, he's decided to ask his older brother to help him with his personal vendetta against the Castello family. What will Alex say? Will the Castellos track them down here in Simnation?

- Ambitious
- Hot-headed
- Perfectionist
- Virtuoso
- Lucky

Food- Grilled Salmon
Music- Classical
Colour- Yellow

Raeesah Al-Helal
The thing Raeesah wanted most was for her sons to be away from the bitter feud between the Castellos and Delacroixes. Raeesah left behind her successful career and her otherwise happy marriage when she with departed with Alex for Simnation, as she thought it would be safer there.

But fifteen years later, with Jean-Pierre's abrupt arrival, will the things she fear come back with him?

- Absent-minded
- Family-oriented
- Frugal
- Good
- Good Sense of Humor

Food- Fruit Parfait
Music- Classical

Antoine Delacroix (deceased)
Born in the city of Chevreux and raised in Champ-les-Sims, Antoine Delacroix almost achieved what he had always wanted; restoring some semblance of the fame the Delacroixes once had. It is well known that he discovered the tomb of King Ramsim IV, but apart from the brief period of fame, he gained nothing.

He always remembered the vitrolic stories his father and uncle told him about the Castellos, and had no hesitation about telling these stories to his son Jean-Pierre. If only Alexandre was still around...

Notes/ Issues
- As Alex uses the body slider, too much exercise will cause his body slider to snap back to the pre-set limits, leaving him looking weird. Anything that affects the muscle mass slider may cause this issue. Either revert to an earlier save, find a way to reset his body fitness, narrow his face and features to match the slimmer body, or hope a mod comes out soon that changes it! Other than that and some cosmetic clipping issues, he plays well.
- With Alex and Jean-Pierre, aging will result in 'pout-mouthedness', due to the way the Sims 3 handles facial structures (durp a durp). Just edit them in CAS and move the mouth height slider to the right until it looks right!
- I've included a pre-made household for convenience. However, it is in a Sims3pack format, and I hold no responsibility if your computer starts smoking!
- If you want to use any one of these sims in a story of your own, do notify me first. I'm itching to see what stories you have!
- Have fun :D
