The Alvi family is the poorest family in Sunset Valley in the beginning of the game, having but 600 Simoleons in the family funds. The family consists of Iqbal Alvi and his two sons, Miraj Alvi and VJ Alvi. Their poverty can stem from the fact that Iqbal works in the business industry, but his lifetime goal is to simply have a perfect aquarium, hence his little drive to earn. Before the game, it is implied through their bios that Iqbal was married to an unknown woman, who got fed up for unknown reasons and abandoned her husband and sons. This caused a rift between Iqbal and his son VJ, who believes that his mother left because of his father. However, other than the biographies, there is no memory or record of a Mrs. Alvi.

It is possible for the player to let Iqbal marry for love or simply for financial assistance. With story progression left on, it is probable that VJ may pursue a romantic relationship with his good friend, Lisa Bunch .

Rachel Alvi is a pre-made homeless Sim from Lunar Lakes, who is likely related to them.

The family could also be of Pakistani descent hinting from the family surname and the name "Iqbal" which are commonly used names in Pakistan.

Onomatology

Alvi: Possible reference to the Alvi Dental Hospital.
Iqbal Alvi: Possibly a reference to Muhammed Iqbal, a great Persian philosopher. It also means 'luck' in Persian.
VJ Alvi: Vijay is derived from Vijaya, meaning "victorious." It is another name for Arjuna, a Hindu hero.
Miraj Alvi: Arabic for ascention. Possibly alluding to Muhammad's journey to Medina.
