World Sunset Valley

Mortimer Goth lives in the Goth mansion with his daughter, Cassandra, and son, Alexander. His longtime wife, Bella, is missing, having been abducted by aliens, and has not yet returned.

Mortimer Goth was born outside of SimCity, in the Old Country, which could refer to a place such as England or an unknown rural area, or could be a way of saying "someplace else". His father moved the family to Sim City when Mortimer was young. He is the son of Gunther Goth and Cornelia Goth, husband of Bella Goth, and father of Cassandra Goth and Alexander Goth.

Biography

Life leading up to The Sims 3

In The Sims 3, Mortimer is a child (7 days to teen) who lives with his parents Gunther and Cornelia Goth (née Crumplebottom). He doesn't know his aunt, Agnes Crumplebottom, very well. Mortimer Goth and Bella Bachelor are best friends. He is also friends with Michael Bachelor. His traits are Grumpy, Ambitious and Artistic, and he is a B+ student who likes to read and paint. He starts out with one point of Logic skill. He is often angry or in a bad mood for no apparent reason, even more, so it seems, than his parents. This is probably due, at least in part, to his grumpy trait. He does however, seem to be able to grow out of this, as in The Sims and The Sims 2, he is described as "Cheerful and outgoing." Also, when he grows up, occasionally there is a bug where his thumbnail, portrait, and marker show himself as a kid. This is also shown in his relationship portrait and as icons for other Sims' wishes.

Life leading up to The Sims Bustin Out

In The Sims Bustin' Out, after 5 Sim Lane burned to the ground, he now lives in Goth Manor. They also have a ghost problem. Here, he talks as if he is a spooky butler. When he is not working as a virus breeder, he spends his time synthesizing music.

This may be the house that was built before The Sims, mainly because Cassandra doesn't exist here and there are fewer tombstones. On the other hand, Mortimer looks slightly older in this game.

Life leading up to The Sims (console)

Mortimer Goth now has a purple suit and black shoes with a black mustache. He lives with his wife Bella Goth and their daughter Cassandra Goth in 5 Sim Avenue. He shares a 95+ with his wife and a 20+ with his daughter. He works as a B- Movie Star in the Entertainment Career Track. He likes to play chess, read books, water the plants and mourn at the tombstones.

Life leading up to The Sims

Mortimer Goth, his wife, Bella, and his daughter, Cassandra, are first introduced in The Sims. He brings his Old Country upbringing into the modern age. He has an unusual fondness for insects. He starts as a Test Subject in the Science career track.

Life leading up to The Sims 2

Between the two games, a lot happened in Mortimer's life. He rose through the ranks of his career from a Test Subject to a Mad Scientist, and became quite wealthy along the way. His parents, Gunther and Cornelia, both perished in two different fires. Bella also gave birth to another child, Alexander Goth. Bella got abducted by aliens, and is still missing at the present time. He strongly disapproves of his daughter being engaged to the town's Casanova, Don Lothario. His widow's peak hair in The Sims seems to have appeared in some photos, but he wears it differently now. Mortimer is retired and dating Dina Caliente, and is close to dying of old age. He has 9 cooking points and maxed cleaning and logic, which are the skills needed for the Mad Scientist position. Mortimer enjoys reading, playing chess and occasionally practicing piano. Strangely, if testingcheatsenabled is used to set his age to something different, he will have blond hair. Also, when viewing his Sim DNA in SimPE, he has genes for brown hair. This is very odd considering that both other games in the series and storytelling pictures in The Sims 2 show him with black hair.

Life leading up to The Sims 3 (Console)

Mortimer does not make an appearance in The Sims 3 for Console. He is mentioned in Alexander Goth's bio (then an adult), and is the father-in-law of Cecilia Goth.

Bella's Disappearance

The most significant event in Pleasantview's storyline is the mysterious disappearance of Mortimer's wife, Bella. All evidence points to alien abduction, but it's interesting to note that she was last seen "scaling the deck" of Don Lothario's condo. Could it have been that she was looking through Don Lothario's telescope when she was taken by the aliens? Bella's disappearance was well-publicized, with "missing persons" notices appearing on milk cartons and in papers. This publicity has led to many theories and rumors, and even supposed sightings in Strangetown. As of The Sims 2, she remains missing. Since Bella is gone, she and Mortimer are no longer considered to be married, and Mortimer can remarry. The story does not explicitly state how this came to be. Mortimer is now romantically involved with Dina Caliente, unaware she is only dating him to gain access to his fortune. Oddly, Mortimer wants to flirt with Dina's sister, Nina, when the game starts out.

Homes

Main article: Goth home


In The Sims, Mortimer lives with his wife, Bella and his daughter, Cassandra, in a small house on Sim Lane (despite his parents' massive mansion on Maple Street). It only has five rooms on two floors: a lounge, a kitchen and two bedrooms as well as a small bathroom. The garden, although much larger, is plain except for the large graveyard, which characterizes the Goths' often seemingly morbid appearance. At night, ghosts often haunt the lot.

By The Sims 2, Mortimer's wealth led to a much larger estate, with three floors, as well as a roof terrace. There is a kitchen, a study, an entrance hall, a dining room, three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a landing, a bare attic room and an interesting garden. The front path is flanked by two large trees. The whole house is on a raised deck, with a flight of steps to reach the front door. If a user closely examines the floor plans, one can tell that the house from The Sims has the same floor plan (except with more floors and a foundation), suggesting that this is perhaps the same house with many additions added on. Behind the house is a wedding arch, along with chairs and tables (suggesting an imminent wedding), intended for Don and Cassandra. Also featured is a graveyard with six dead relatives.

In The Sims 3, Mortimer and Bella are children living with their parents in Sunset Valley. Mortimer, his father, Gunther Goth, and his mother, Cornelia Goth, live in a mansion very close to the cemetery, while Bella lives with her brother, Michael, and her parents, Simis and Jocasta in a house smaller than the Goth Estate, close to Mortimer.

Mortimer Goth in Other Games

Mortimer Goth is perhaps one of the most well known Sims in its series. He appears in other games such as The Sims: Bustin' Out, the TV family on The Sims 2 for GameBoy Advance. Also in SimCity 4 there is a Sim with a likeness of Mortimer, however the name is different. He, his wife Bella Goth, his daughter, Cassandra Goth, the Tragic Clown and other characters are put for download in the official SimGolf site; though, when the "The Sims" theme is chosen, there's a Mortimer and Bella who don't exactly look like themselves). His occupation in SimGolf is an undertaker, and he speaks in a very dark and Gothic tone, much like his daughter, Cassandra does in the game, such as frequently saying the words death and kill.

He works as a B-Movie Star in the Entertainment career in The Sims console version.

Trivia & Easter eggs

  • Mortimer Goth's appearance is likely to be based on that of Vincent Price, a famous American horror actor.
  • "Mort" is French for death. Mortimer's name seems fitting because the Goths seem to be somewhat obsessed with death (as evidenced by their graveyard). The name is even more fitting in The Sims 2, in which Mortimer is an elder close to death.
  • There is a song under the Jazz section named "Mortimer's Touch."
  • His family is the only family to be in every The Sims game.
  • He is the only Sim to be alive and playable in every The Sims game.
  • He was the first Sim created in Pleasantview, as his NID is 1.
  • Since he was the first created Sim in the neighborhood, he is Pleasantview's first shover (the second is Daniel Pleasant, but if you move John Burb into Pleasantview he'll be the second shover [citation needed]).
  • His memories in The Sims 2 show him having many promotions in the Science career before marrying Bella, even though in the The Sims, he is at the start of the science career track while already married with a child. This may just be a mistake by the producers that was overlooked when the game was prepared for release; or it could be an example of "retroactive continuity".
  • Mortimer is one of the few premade playable Sims to appear on the cover of The Sims 3.
  • In The Sims 3, when a sim is currently in Acting career, then the might get an option called See Screening of Mortimer Goth and the Chalice of Water.
  • In The Sims 3 Mortimer is a few days younger than Kaylynn Langerak, but in The Sims 2 Mortimer is an elder while Kaylynn is an adult. This could have been a mistake by the producers.

Quotes from SimGolf

  • I'll die painfully on this shot.
  • I'm dead.
  • I'm dead and can't ever come back to life.
  • Go ahead and kill me!!
  • This kills any chance I had for par.
  • This kills my chance for par!
  • This DATA would make a sturdy tombstone.
  • That DATA is too ugly for even the Newbies.
  • Ahh! A perfect sacrificial DATA!
  • This waiting is like purgatory.
  • I'm bone dry over here.
