Biography[edit | edit source]
Birth to Childhood years[edit | edit source]
The youngest of three children, her parents already had two sons, Wyatt and Alfred. She was their only child to be given birth at home. Isaac was throwing his birthday party when Constance suddenly began child labor, and she was stuck by a panicking croud surrounding her, giving birth to Ursula on the spot.
During her first years she was mostly taken care of by her mother, who taught her toddler skills. Constance who had finished writing a novel when she was born, so she got a longer maternity leave due to it and had more time to dot on her princess. Ursula would grow very fond of her mother as a result. Similarly to her brothers, her father was not very present present in her education, being mostly focussed on his inventions, and she would only become good friends with him later. Irina, the butler tragically died of electrocution by this time, but Ursula was too young to remember.
From an early age, Ursula showed signs of being very clevel - she was always playing the xylophene and with blocks.
When she grew up into childhood, she got a mini-oven as a birthday present for her father. She started baking cupcakes and being snacks she would offer to her family, who would actively encourage her hobby. Soon enough, she was selling her goodies at Riverview venues.
Unaware of an ongoing rivarly between her two brothers, she became very close friends with both.
At school, she became one of the best students in her class and her good grades earned the recognition of being enlisted in the honor roll. However, she had to help Alfred out of trouble as he was being targeted by bullies at his school. She talked them out of bullying Alfred, and he was soon left. The two grew even closer and started studying together.
When Alfred became a teen and Wyatt a young adult, their mutual dislike for each other had become a deep hatred. Ursula tried to use the proximity she had with both by convincing Wyatt to have more positive social interactions with Alfred, which ultimately failed.
Unlike Alfred, she was very cheerful when her brother presented Melanie Cole, his soon-to-be wife who, unlike she had been for his previous girlfriend. MaryKay not only freaked out when Ursula tried talking to her but she also taunted and bullied the poor child, until Alfred stood up for her. With Melanie she could have smooth conversations and share her passion for goodie selling.
During her childhood, her hobbies, besides cooking consisted of looking through the Telescope, similary to her brother, playing chess and playing with her friends. She attended ballet classes.
Teenage Years[edit | edit source]
Upon growing up into a fashionable teenager, a public ceremony was held at their home for Wyatt and Melanie, in which she went around offering her cupcakes and snacks as treats and party gifts. She become puzzled at two vegetarian guests' refusal to eat, thinking as they later died of starvation after the ceremony, which she thought was so unfortunate. Cuisine was not only a hobby now, but also a talent and passion. She started wanting to prepare her own meals, much to the family's butler's shock.
She got a part-time job at the local Spa, but her grades never suffered as a result. She also began dating her childhood sweetheart, Jordan Simovitch, the late brother of Betty Newbie. Additionally, she was completely delighted by the birth of her little niece, Rosaura, taking care of her when everyone else was at work or couldn't. Because of that, Rosaura would become very close to her aunt. In fact, she was closer to Ursula than to her mother and father.
In order to help her brother out with his social standing at school, she suggested he throw a high school party at their house, when the adults of the house, decided to go on a quick weekend trip. The party was "awesome" as described the teenagers, to the point a police officer had to check in to see what was going. Thankfully, when he arrived, the party had just finished and people were leaving. When the adults returned, everything had been cleaned up and nothing rose suspicion.
Although Alfred had been the host of the amazing high school party, he still struggled to find a date to the Prom, which upset Ursula. She was going with Jordan, and they had their pictue taken together. To top it off, she was also elected the Prom Queen and kept a small prize and the photo Inventory.
However, things got rocky with Jordan, which prompted her to end their relationship. He would pursue her again and their relationship became on-and-off.
Ursula started noticing Alfred was acting more strangely, even seemingly talking alone, which concerned her. She shared these concerns with her mother, but they did not how to approach him on this issue.
Young Adulthood to Adulthood[edit | edit source]
Her early days of young adulthood were lived calmly, except maybe for her tumultuous relationship with Jordan, which had, once again, been broken off by her. She joined the culinary career to make use of her cooking skills, and she was having a blast. However, she was soon to be grief-striken, as her mother Constance would die of Old Age followed by Isaac shortly after.
Alfred, trying to be helpful, told her of a recipe that could be used to bring them back to life. However, Ursula wondered if this was a reliable claim or just his typical nonsense, so she dismissed it and instead continued grieving. A big funeral ceremony was held at their home and the remaints were buried in the manor, outside.
The existence of a Time Machine, previously hidden in the garage, now placed outside, piqued Ursula's interest and appealed to her adventurous side. She began to wish going on Time Travels. She did so numerous times, choosing the past as her ideal destination. On one of those trips to Medieval era, disguised as a dame of honor, she was swept off her feet by a Brave Knight, with whom she would conceive a child she would later leave behind. The child was named Jane.
On her trip back to the Past, Ursula met an almost unrecognizable Jane - beautiful, freckled, redhead with piercing violet eyes and almost the same age as she was - Ursula would learn that Jane's father had died and she was now on her own. Convinced she could provide a better life for her daughter, she persuaded Jane into travelling to the future with her. Baffled but hopeful, her daughter joined her mother on the trip back.
Although Jane was initially pleased by the household's conditions, she would still feel like a fish out of the water. She did not fit in at all. Additionally, it was beyond her belief how daily life processed and what were those black things, big and small, which had a grey space in the middle in which people could show up on them any time, without ever being able to touch them. Her mother Ursula's explanations never seemed to be good enough. Worse, Jane longed to marry, but there seemed to be no eligible suitor for her, and she thought modern men Sims were not real men Sims at all.
Unknown to her mother and everyone else, Jane would go on a time-travel to go back where she belonged. She would instead end up in medieval china, where she would also meet a man who would father her child, Ben Jie Ming. Unlike her mother, Jane chose to never leave her baby, and instead brought him back to Riverview. Ursula was delighted at becoming a grandmother at such young age, welcoming her grandson with open arms.
However, Jane was strongly determined to go back where she had been born, taking the baby with her on once another time travel. Ursula witnessed this, and started panicking hours had gone by and they still weren't back, so she went to talk to Alfred. They realized the Time Machine was broken, and Ursula begged to go on it to look for her daughter and grandson. Alfred explained it was completely futile, as she would most likely die trying, as Jane and her baby had, leaving a very distraught Ursula. He then started to build another Time Machine, which he knew would take many SimYears.
The event would precede her two subsequent pregnancies, Diane and, then, Bibiane, were born. They would become her joy for the next SimDays.
Unlike Ursula, Wyatt and Melanie were having tremendous trouble conceiving, and were already well into their late adulthood with only one child, Rosaura. Only males could inherit according to the law. A succession problem was at issue, and it concerned everyone, except Alfred. Melanie, well versed in Politics, worked her way into changing the law to let Rosaura be the designated heiress but meanwhile the issue was still being resolved, Wyatt and Melanie knew they had to conceive a son.
Additionally, Wyatt very much pressured his daughter into accepting the responsibility that would inevitably fall on her shoulders should the law be changed. On a gloomy, she would go missing, and Ursula would later find mail from her from an unknown post - she had written a note where it read she was okay, wished everyone well and that she wished they would not look for her. Everyone's shock was great.
The natural fertility treatment seemed to work - Wyatt got Melanie pregnant as an recent aged elder, while Melanie was only two days away from becoming one herself. She gave birth to twins, Bianca and Alphonse, the latter considered the new heir.
With the twins' birthday approaching, Ursula came back from work to bake the promised birthday cake, only to find a kitchen with most its furniture detonated, by Alfred, out of a fit of rage.
