Robyn Bonnie Schwarz is a Sim residing in Riverview, who has a minor role in the story of the Straight Family as the mother of Justine Schwarz and the grandmother of Starr Schwarz. She resided at 320 Riverblossom Hills Drive with her husband, Cale.
Robyn is most likely a mix of European and Cherokee/Native American descent based on her appearance. Robyn's everyday outfit consists of a pink polo shirt, tan corduroys, black boots, and white bangles worn on her left arm. Her hair is in pigtails, showing off her pearl earrings. She wears a small amount of pink lipstick and orange blush.
Not much about Robyn's early life is known other than the fact that she grew up very poor. Struggling to get by day-to-day, she turned to a life of crime at a young age, introduced to it by her high-school boyfriend, Clyde Cantrell. It started out very minor, with small crimes like petty theft. However, like most young relationships theirs didn't last.
Robyn soon met and began a passionate relationship with her classmate, David Starr. Even though she refused to go public with their relationship, David didn't care and was absolutely taken with her. Until it all came crashing down. She began cheating on him with her other classmate, Nelson Harvey. David tried to warn him, but Nelson had already succumbed to her charm. The two would continue to date for 8 more years before he learned of the affair.
Robyn's life was turned upside down when she fell pregnant with her daughter, Justine. Clyde, however, could not have been the father, as the two had been broken up for some time when she discovered her pregnancy. She didn't know if David or Nelson was the father, as David had transferred to another high school by that point. So after graduation, Nelson and Robyn moved to Sunset Valley together to raise her daughter, who she named Justine. Their relationship weakened, until Robyn broke down and admitted to cheating all those years ago. After taking a paternity test, Nelson discovered he was not the father and proceeded to break off the 8-year relationship.
Life in RiverviewEdit
After the move to Riverview, Robyn's life began to look up. She was happy in a relationship, she lived in a decent size house, but continued on her crime spree, going on petty theft, extortion, and crooked embezzlement. This caused conflict, as Seth was a police officer. Seth served her with divorce papers, and planned to expose her. He even had all the evidence down at the station. However, Seth didn't move out immediately, which gave Robyn the perfect opportunity to cover her tracks.
Covering her TracksEdit
One night, Seth came home from work and placed his keys on the kitchen island without thinking. He went upstairs to shower and his soon-to-be ex-wife snatched the keys off the island, pocketing them. While Seth was in the shower, Robyn took his police uniform under the guise of doing laundry. Donning the police uniform, she drove down to the station. Lying that she left her thermos in the cafeteria, she took all the security tapes, then walked into the evidence department and threw her file into the shredder. To throw the police off, she threw a few files into the shredder, including that of local criminals Julie Singer and Sammy Jeckars. Seth and the rest of the force were sure that Robyn was responsible, but their hands were tied. With no legal evidence left to convict her with, the police were forced to drop Robyn of her charges.
After the divorce, Robyn became slightly promiscuous. She began to neglect Justine, and began to have short flings with a few men around town, including local womanizer Don Lothario. A wrench was thrown into her life when her daughter, Justine, ran off and eloped with Mike Erickson. Her unpaid bills piled up, and her house was repossessed. During this period, Robyn spent a short time in prison for tax evasion. When she got out of prison, she started squatting in a hut formerly inhabited by the infamous criminal Lucky Perkins, although she would later buy the land off the town government and fix it up.
Marriage to TomEdit
Robyn then met Tom, a divorced elderly man, who she started a relationship with. Things moved very fast, and the two moved in together. Tom, aging fast and desperate for companionship, quietly eloped with Robyn, giving the two the money to start fixing up the house. Tom also gave Robyn something else: Lycanthropy. However, Robyn took this to her advantage. With her heightened senses she could find valuables with ease.
One day, Robyn came home from work, frightened to find Tom's lifeless body lying on their bed. Police still suspected his wife for one reason: she had taken out a life insurance policy on Tom about 5 months prior. They did seem genuinely happy in spite of their age difference, but some of Robyn's neighbors did catch wind of a few horrible fights between the two, sparking great suspicion. However, the autopsy determined that Tom passed from natural causes. Everyone suspected she married him to get his life insurance money, even her own daughter. But since she wasn't responsible for Tom's demise, the police had no valid reason to arrest her.
After Tom's DeathEdit
After a year had passed, Robyn started to get back out in the dating world and began flirting with her accomplice, Cale Zeller. The two soon started dating. 3 months into the relationship, the two decided to move in together.
Things with Cale were better than ever, and Robyn's birthday was approaching. Cale, trying to be a good boyfriend, threw her a surprise birthday party. The celebration was a roof raiser. At the end of the night, almost all of the guests went home. Except local resident June Thomas. June expired from old age in the foyer, putting Robyn and Cale in a bad mood. Funeral processions were held the next day.
Justine came to visit a few days later, and Robyn invited her in for a cup of coffee, saying she had a surprise. Robyn reconnected with the only other man who could've been Justine's father, back when she and Cale went on a vacation together. He turned out to be a man named David Starr, who was living in Monte Vista with his wife and daughters.
Robyn and Cale had been dating for two years at this point. He planned a surprise proposal for Robyn, which she accepted. An engagement party was held the next day. The next year, an elegant wedding was held at the Octagon House. By this time, Robyn had realized that her family is what's most important to her. She finally retired from a life of crime.
Robyn passed away at 93 from old age.
