Erika Talon is the townie mother of Jessica Talon. Just like her daughter, she is a vampire and they have a very neutral relationship - neither positive or negative. She is usually seen performing jobs like paparazzi or bouncer, though she starts off unemployed. Like many relatives of Bridgeport Sims, she doesn't live anywhere in the neighborhood, unlike previous games where living relatives had been always playable Sims.
She is an adult and is 38 days away from becoming an elder (Vampires live longer than normal Sims). Oddly, she has four traits instead of five. Like Morrigan Hemlock, her favorite color isn't black. Instead, it is purple. It is possible that she was a human before turning into a vampire. She has mastered the mixology skill but has no other skills. She carries a book, 3 plasma fruits and a Big Lemon in her inventory.
