Lyla Grunt (née Vandermorgan) is one of the pre-created, yet unplayable Sims featured in The Sims 2 as ancestors of playable, pre-created Sims. Though deceased when the game begins, she appears in the relationship trees of playable Sims Tank Grunt, Ripp Grunt and Buck Grunt, who are her sons.
She resided, during her lifetime, in Strangetown, one of the neighborhoods that ships with the game. She is the mother of Tank Grunt, Ripp Grunt and Buck Grunt. Her ex-husband is General Buzz Grunt and she is the daughter of A.P. Vandermorgan and Jacqueline Vandermorgan, both of Strangetown.
Lyla's aspiration is Romance and her zodiac sign is Libra. She is interested in the paranormal, money and weather. When it comes to her appearance, she has tanned skin, brown eyes and blond hair. She also wears very elegant pink dress in her profile picture but her clothes and hairstyle in the image where she moves out of the Grunt house is different - she wears blue sweat-shirt and brown trousers.
Before she died, she and General Buzz divorced, and Lyla moved out. The reason they divorced is unknown, and where Lyla went after she moved out of the Grunt house is also unknown. It appears that Lyla and Olive Specter knew each other because Lyla mysteriously died in Olive's garden, which is where her grave is located. Her ghost shows that she died of electrocution. Strangely, the family she left behind has no memories of her other than her divorce from General Buzz; they do not even have memories of her death. This suggests that she may have abandoned them and never kept in contact, or it may simply be an error on the part of the game's creators. If Nightlife or later is installed, and the player moves her grave, then some of her family will get a memory of her death, which will let them realize that she is dead.
Some Information about Lyla and her resurrection: She seems to have brown eyes but originally she has dark blue eyes. If you make only ONE change apperance she will be alright. So go on..: first, go to the specter estate with the boolprop testingcheatsenabled true code get the tombstone of life and death, and add her to the family, after that kill her and resurrect her with Olive or Ophelia, now she is alive, but bald and has brown eyes, so go to the mirror and change apperance give her the original hair, and her dress which is in the gardorbe, if you made the change apperance she will have the normal original face and dark blue eyes, but what is IMPORTANT, do not make a second change apperance or she will be glitchy and distorment.
- There is image of Lyla in her elder stage hidden deeply in her character files. It can be found using SimPE but it is unknown why is it there. It might not even be her - while the elder Lyla has dark blue eyes, the adult Lyla has brown eyes. Their faces are also different, and the elder Lyla's skin is slightly darker than the adult Lyla's.
- Lyla has a memory of breaking up with General Buzz, however it is a break up for going steady.
