Patricia Wan lives with her best friend Cleo Shikibu in the house Cleo inherited from her aunt, Catherine Viejo. She loves Gabe O'Mackey, a feeling he returns, but his daughter Jules doesn't like her.
Patricia has Chinese ancestry, as her last name, ancestors' names (Tianrong, Xiaotien, Mengnuan) and appearance shows. She may also have Japanese ancestry, as Kayami, Yuu, Hana and Mori seem more like Japanese names than Chinese names.
Like most of her family, she has the Popularity aspiration.
- Because of a bug addressed in the Seasons patch, she may be shown as the father of the twins in the Ottomas family.
- She may be related to Pauline Wan of the Wan-Goddard household in The Sims 3. They both have black hair, brown eyes, and round faces. Patricia's Popularity aspiration is also similar to Pauline's people-friendly traits such as Party Animal and Flirty.
