Write a Review!

Dexter Garrett is a character in the original story Outside, Looking In, written by me, Willow. The sim is based off the angel/mortal shifter in the story, with the same name.

Dexter is only ever happy, when he is on his own in his secret little den, either spending time on his computer or thinking about Ida, wondering if she would ever love him back. He only rarely socialises. Usually to Arianna, Marcella or Samuel. He always has time for Ida, of course. His closest relationship is with Samuel. They are old friends, which could mean they have been friends most of their lives.

Going outside is an absolute impossibility for him. For this reason, he has never met anyone outside of the household. Honestly, he his happy to be this way. Dexter is often found typing away on his computer, or reading a book. He never puts either away. The laptop usually ends up on a random table, and the books in his inventory.

After an outburst at Ida, when she revealed she wanted to date someone, Dexter revealed his true feelings to her. They started dating.

Career wise, he is more than qualified to do well in numerous career tracks. But, he is more than happy to stay at home reading all of the skill books on the book shelf.

Upon their move to Isla Paradiso, Dexter's life style did not change. He still spent all his time around the houseboat, leaving his laptop on random tables.

  • Dexter's first name is not a reference to any character or person. I was going through a baby name book. I wanted to give him a name beginning with 'D.' Dexter was the only one I liked.
  • Dexter is a regular sim, because angels are not createable in sims. Nor would the fairy wings look right. I just act like he is an angel, while playing the game.
