Playability Deceased
Neighborhood Belladonna Cove

Leandra Rutherford (née Melkin) is one of the pre-made deceased ancestral Sims who resided during her lifetime in Belladonna Cove, the neighborhood shipped with The Sims 2: Apartment Life. She was the daughter of Dmitri and Shannon Melkin, the wife of Kenneth Rutherford, the mother of Marissa Cleveland (née Rutherford) and Geoff Rutherford, and the grandmother of Justin Cleveland. Leandra is completely resurrectable, even though she doesn't have a grave. She has the Fortune aspiration, and the Aquarius zodiac sign. As far as personality, Leandra is quite playful and somewhat nice. But she is somewhat sloppy, shy, and lazy.

According to Leandra's SimDNA in SimPE, her hair was brown before it turned grey. According to her age data, she had 18 days left in the elder life stage when she died. Leandra uses the 14th Maxis face template in Create a Sim, except the eyebrows and eyes which use the 13th face template. Also the jaw is slightly longer. However the jaw is only longer on teenage, adult, and elder females, which may mean that the jaw was genetically passed down, as this oddity generally only occurs on Sims whose facial features were genetically passed down.

Leandra's SimDNA in SimPE shows that her recessive alleles are for red hair and grey eyes. Also her dominant skin tone range is for medium skin, while her recessive skin tone range is for tanned skin. However Leandra's dominant and recessive alleles are for medium skin. Unlike several other married ancestors from Apartment Life who have memories of their spouses, she only has Mystery Sim memories. However Leandra still has memories of giving birth to Marissa and Geoff, as well as Marissa getting engaged and married, and meeting her grandson Justin.

Her family tree is broken, like Etokas Cho. It is known that Leandra had Geoff very late in her life, since Marissa was a teen when he was born. Strangely, both Leandra and her husband's memories indicate that Geoff was born before Marissa, while Marissa has the memory of Geoff's birth, which clearly implies that she is supposed to be the older sibling. This is further supported, as Marissa is much older than Geoff in-game, and Geoff having the memory of learning to walk from Marissa, though Marissa does not have it. Despite her aspiration, Leandra isn't interested in Money.

Leandra is the feminine form of Leander, derived from the Greek leon, for lion, and andros, man (ie, a lion of a man).
