Cornelia Goth (née Crumplebottom) is a pre-created, playable Sim in The Sims: Unleashed and The Sims 3. She first appeared in the Unleashed expansion pack along with her husband, Gunther Goth, and their two cats, Hecuba and Menelaus. She is the matriarch of the Goth Family and Pleasantview.

Cornelia was born in the Old Country, and then moved to Sunset Valley in The Sims 3, and eventually to Pleasantview in The Sims 2. She is the mother of Mortimer Goth, husband to the now famous Bella Goth. Cornelia was the wife of Gunther Goth, and the daughter of Simon Crumplebottom and Prudence Crumplebottom, both of Pleasantview; she has a sister, Agnes Crumplebottom.


Life leading up to The Sims 3Edit

Since The Sims 3 is a prequel to The Sims, Cornelia and Gunther are adults. Her appearance is somewhat of a goth, with purple colored hair, though her natural hair color in The Sims 2 is black. She wears a long, dark purple/black dress.

She is currently a stay-at-home mom, who is very skilled at painting (level 6). She doesn't have a very good relationship with her husband, Gunther Goth, as he is a workaholic and doesn't pay her much attention. This however contradicts Mortimer's bio, which claims that their marriage was strong and healthy. Although friends, they do not have a high enough relationship to WooHoo.

Her parents, Prudence and Simon Crumplebottom, are both deceased and buried in the Goth graveyard. Cornelia is a friend of Vita Alto and an acquaintance of Nick Alto, Geoffrey Landgraab and Nancy Landgraab. Cornelia's closest relationship is to her sister, Agnes Crumplebottom, with whom she is good friends. Both sisters will often become best friends, shortly after the game begins.

Her lifetime wish to have a perfect garden is hard to fulfill, as she has not learned the gardening skill, has no seeds in her inventory or plants in her yard, and lacks the green thumb or loves the outdoors traits. In addition, she is only 7 days away from becoming an elder.

If The Sims 3: Seasons is installed, she often works at the food booths at the Sunset Valley Summer Festival along with Madison VanWatson.

Life leading up to The SimsEdit

Cornelia Goth and her husband Gunther Goth are introduced in The Sims: Unleashed, along with their two cats Hecuba and Menelaus. In her bio, she is glad that her granddaughter, Cassandra, is so nearby. She is the founder of the Sim City Bridge Society, and enjoys high tea and phrenology. She is perhaps a friend of Buffy Snooty Patooty, whom she may meet when having high tea in the club or playing bridge. Also, judging from her clothing (and the fact that Gunther has a job), she is likely to be a housewife in this game.

Her relationship with her husband seems to have recovered, as she is fully in love with him by the time of this game. She wears a long and elegant black and silver dress. Unlike The Sims 2, her last name in The Sims is Goth Sr, but that is only to distinguish between the different families.

When first played in Neighborhood 1, she will have no relationships with Mortimer, Bella, and Cassandra.

Life leading up to The Sims 2Edit

In The Sims 2, Cornelia and her husband had died in two separate fires. She died when her son Mortimer retired. Her husband had died much earlier, when her second grandchild, Alexander was born. She is buried in the new Goth home with Gunther, her father, sister, father-in-law and mother-in-law.

She wears a long black dress (although it wasn't as fancy as the one she wore in The Sims) and round glasses, the only time in the series where she wears them. Like Mama Lothario, she has an unused French Braid hairstyle. It looks a lot like the hairstyle that is available in Create-A-Sim, but the texture is different. If she is resurrected or appears as a haunting ghost, her hairstyle will change into the French Braid hairstyle present in the game.

According to Cornelia's SimDNA in SimPE, her hair was black before it turned grey. According to her age data, she had 27 days left in the elder life stage when she died.

Main article: The Goth Home

In The Sims: Unleashed, Cornelia lived with Gunther and their cats Hecuba and Menelaus in a large mansion at 77 Maple Street in Old Town, a little further from Sim Lane. The home has a small graveyard (like all Goth homes) but there are no ghosts, so it is not known who is buried there. Perhaps, Gunther died in a fire in the mansion, then Cornelia died in the Goth home, which then was re-constructed into a new and improved house for Mortimer, Cassandra and Alexander Goth in The Sims 2. In The Sims 3, Cornelia, Gunther and Mortimer live in a big house with its own cemetery.


  • Cornelia has blue eyes in The Sims 3, but brown eyes in The Sims 2.
  • In The Sims 3, Cornelia has the same favorites as Victor Goth, her father in law.
  • Since Cornelia and Gunther died in two separate fires, it could be assumed that one of them died in the fire that burnt down 5 Sim Lane.
  • She made a cameo in the intro movie in The Sims 3. She could be seen asking for an autograph from a guitarist at the theater.
  • With default aging in The Sims 3, she will become an elder while Mortimer is still a child. This completely contradicts the fact that Mortimer and Cornelia were both elders before the start of The Sims 2 as evident by Mortimer's memories.
    • On a similar note, Cornelia is close to becoming an elder in The Sims 3, but died around the time of her son's retirement, which was a fairly recent event.
  • Cornelia has a fondness for purple, and other shades of purple, in The Sims 3.
  • Despite not being a witch, she is often seen in promotional pictures, from The Sims 3 store, regarding magical objects, hobbies, and skills.
