Playability Deceased
Neighborhood Bluewater Village

Carl Gieke is one of the pre-made deceased ancestral Sims who resided during his lifetime in Bluewater Village, the shopping district shipped with The Sims 2: Open for Business. He was the husband of Lucy Gieke, and the father of their son Chester Gieke. Like most pre-made deceased Sims, Carl has no personality points or skills. He is however completely resurrectable, even though he doesn't have a grave. Carl has the hidden Power aspiration, which is very common among pre-made deceased Bluewater Village Sims.

When editing in SimPE, his zodiac sign is not recognized. Also while Carl is recognized by the game as an adult, he has the appearance of an elder. Strangely when viewing his SimDNA in SimPE, Carl has grey hair genetics. This is unusual since grey hair is normally not reflected in SimDNA. He has no true hair genetics. According to Carl's age data in SimPE, he had 29 days left in the adult life stage when he died.

He uses the 1st Maxis face template in Create a Sim, except the nose is smaller, and the lips are thicker. In Carl's character file, he is named Bob. He was probably originally meant to be named Bob, but was renamed to Carl. He has no wants but he does have fears. This means that if Carl is made playable, his aspiration level will only go down, not up. His broken wants slot can be fixed with a Sim Modder.
