Mary-Sue Pleasant (née Oldie) is a pre-made Sim who lives at 215 Sim Lane in Pleasantview, along with her husband, Daniel, and twin daughters, Angela and Lilith. She was adopted by Coral and Herb Oldie as a toddler and appears to be of Asian descent. Maxis has not confirmed that she was named for this reason, but her name refers to a fictional character who is too perfect.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Life leading up to The Sims[edit | edit source]

Neither Mary-Sue nor her adoptive parents appear in The Sims, but both she and Cassandra Goth have memories of having been best friends since they were children, implying that the Oldie family moved into Neighborhood 1 shortly after the start of The Sims.

Life leading up to The Sims 3[edit | edit source]

Mary-Sue and her husband make a comeback as newlyweds on their honeymoon on Sunlit Tides. She has two points in logic, and one in cooking and handiness, which is inconsistent with her lack of cooking and mechanical skills in The Sims 2. She has no relationships with her neighbors. While Mary-Sue's hair and eyebrows are black in The Sims 2, her eyebrows in The Sims 3 are brown, implying that she dyed her eyebrows brown in The Sims 3.

Life leading up to The Sims 2[edit | edit source]

She is a bit of a workaholic, and seems too immersed in her job as an Intern in the Politics career track to notice all the problems at her home—including that her husband is having an affair with the maid, Kaylynn Langerak. The Maxis plots show that their lives look perfect on the outside, but it's not all flowers and smiles. She does seem to have a little obsession with perfection, which relates again to the name she was given.

When the game starts she is 7 days away from becoming an elder. This is inconsistent with her adoptive parents' ages. Even if Herb and Coral adopted her near the beginning of their adult lives, she would be closer to the beginning of hers, not closer to its end. This could be a mistake by the game's creators, or it could imply that Herb and Coral had access to the Elixir of Life, either giving them a longer lifespan or decreasing Mary-Sue's lifespan. Her age is also inconsistent with Cassandra's age, even though they were childhood friends. Despite the age inconsistency with her parents and Cassandra, her age is in fact consistent with the ages of her husband and two daughters.

When the Pleasant family is first played, Maxis has arranged everything into a recipe for disaster, rather like when the Goth family is first played. While Mary-Sue is at work and the twins are at school, Daniel has the day off, and the maid Daniel has an affair with, Kaylynn Langerak, comes to the house to clean up. Like every service NPC that is friends with someone in the household, she asks if he wants to hang out after work.

What usually happens is that, following Daniel's wishes to WooHoo with Kaylynn, Mary-Sue gets a pre-determined chance card from work and, unless the player chooses Ignore, she will either be fired or demoted, thus coming home early and catching Daniel and Kaylynn together. She doesn't seem to want to get divorced from Daniel, even though she isn't in love with him. Mary-Sue will get the chance card regardless of how the situation between Daniel and Kaylynn is played.

If Daniel does some of the cleaning, either before Kaylynn arrives or while she's there, she may be able to finish early enough for the two of them to be able to WooHoo before Mary-Sue gets home. If they manage to do this, and if they're kept out of other romantic interactions, Mary-Sue will not catch Daniel cheating, and he will be able to get away with the affair for the time being.

It's also possible to lock Mary-Sue's fear of losing her job. After receiving the chance card, choosing the "Grammar Check" option will cause her to lose her job. If that triggers the fear, she will go into aspiration failure, giving Daniel and Kaylynn more time in their affair.

Mary-Sue's bio says that she enjoyed making pottery "when she had the time". Whether that's before she had Angela and Lilith, or before she got tied up in her career, or both, is left unsaid.

Sims cannot make pottery unless the FreeTime expansion is installed.

The chance card Mary-Sue receives when the Pleasant family is first played. She will be fired or demoted if "Ignore" is not clicked.

The outcome of the chance card if the player chooses "Edit".

The outcome of the chance card if the player chooses "Grammar Check".

The chance card she receives while at work has been pre-set so that both choices will give the negative outcome. It may be possible that she was intended to be home soon enough to catch Daniel cheating with Kaylynn, and both negative outcomes of that card force the Sim to come home early. Players who do not want to ignore the card can activate the testing cheats, spawn the Chance Card Tester, and choose force chance card outcome.../neutral. This will reset the card so it uses the normal odds for success or failure.

If free will is on, Mary-Sue may autonomously perform romantic socials on Daniel and, if Kaylynn is in the same room, will reverse the intended outcome, where Kaylynn is furious at Daniel and Mary-Sue for cheating.

She is one of the few pre-made adult Sims in The Sims 2 to have living parents. She and Cassandra Goth are the only adult Sims in Pleasantview who have at least one living parent. In the beta of The Sims 2, Mary-Sue had the 4th face template, brown hair and green eyes before it was changed. This explains why Angela and Lillith have the 4th face template and bearing no resemblace to Mary-Sue's changed appearance.

Despite her bio saying that she is friendly, she only has three nice points, making her rather grouchy.

Life leading up to The Sims 4[edit | edit source]

An official Maxis recreation of Mary-Sue and her family in The Sims 4 was uploaded to the Gallery on February 22, 2019, marking the 19th year anniversary of The Sims. She is 22 days away from becoming an elder.
