Neighborhood Bluewater Village

Checoleín "Checo" Ramirez is a pre-made playable Sim who owns a furniture shop in Bluewater Village. He is married to Lisa Ramirez and has a daughter, Tessa. According to her bio, Lisa has helped Checo out in the furniture store at times before Tessa became a child; whether she will continue doing that is left to the player to decide. He and Lisa have a mediocre relationship with each other; while they are still in love, they only hold a daily and lifetime relationship score in the 70's range.

At the beginning of the game, Checo will be in the kitchen right next to the phone. He will have a want to invite the headmaster over and get Tessa into private school. When the family is first played, Checo is 17 days from being an elder. Often going unnoticed, he has 24 personality points instead of the usual 25.

Checo appears to be of Hispanic descent, as Juan and Theresa are common Hispanic names and Ramirez is a popular surname in areas such as Panama, Colombia, and Ecuador. Oddly, even though Checo's parents appear in his family tree, he doesn't have any memories of them. Although Checo has black hair, his parents both have brown hair—there is a similar case regarding Lisa and her parents, which may have been an error by the developers.

Checo, as well as Stephen Tinker, are both mentioned in the descriptions of various objects from The Sims 4: Movie Hangout Stuff, where they are said to travel through several towns from The Sims 3, in which they meet some their residents.
