The family

So here´s the family so far – I will add more, as the story continues. I have uploaded them to the exchange, so grab them, while they are hot!

The Dust family

They are CC-free and you can use them however you like. Just, um, be kind to them? And if you show them somewhere, where other people can see them, some credit would be nice.

Screenshot-e1  Violetta Dust

The founder. She´s family oriented, a hopeless romantic, a coward, artistic and an animal lover. Tends to paint a lot, when left on her own. A very pleasant sim to play. Her lifetime wish is Master of the arts. Married to Paul, mother of Nathan, Steven and Amber.

Screenshot-e4 Paul Dust

Came out of the wishing well in Lucky Palm, when Violetta wished for love. He´s a natural cook, excitable, clumsy, hydrophobic and has a green thumb. Cooks up a storm and cries after a shower. His lifetime wish is the perfect garden. Married to Violetta, father of Nathan, Steven and Amber.

Screenshot-e5 Nathan Dust

First son of Violetta and Paul. He´s neurotic, excitable, brave, friendly and nurtering, got the additional trait computer whizz. His lifetime wish is Master Magician. My favourite sim in this legacy so far, though his greatgrandson is giving him a run for his money. Was made a witch after he reached his LTW. Married to Joe and father of Kym.

Screenshot-e8 Steven Dust

Second son of Violetta and Paul. He´s a loner, grumpy, family friendly, a bookworm and a virtuoso. Pretty nice guy for a grump, even though he insists on a certain hairstyle when growing up. His lifetime wish is the culinary librarian. Married to Star, father of Pauline.

Screenshot-e10 Amber Dust

Daughter of Violetta and Paul. She loves the cold, is easily impressed, a party animal, a nightowl and dislikes children. A good mum, despite her traits. Her lifetime wish is Five Star Cook. Married to Jaron, mother of Kisa.

Screenshot-e12 Jaron Panther

A babysitter I kidnapped. He´s flirty, a slob, unlucky, family friendly and disciplined, got the additional trait handy. His lifetime wish is Master Acrobat. His flirts with everything with a pulse, and has his eyes especially on Violetta and Amber. Was made a fairy after he fullfilled his LTW. Married to Amber, father of Kisa.

Screenshot-e13 Joe Dust

Steven´s IF made real. He can´t stand art, is clumsy, never nude, friendly and a great kisser. Is addicted to sprinklers, but otherwise a very nice guy. His lifetime wish is Renaissance sim. Married to Nathan, father of Kym.

Screenshot-e15 Star Dust

IF of Amber, made real. She´s brave, a bookworm, a vehicle enthusiast, a hopeless romantic and handy. Got the additional trait animal lover. Her lifetime wish is golden tongue, golden fingers. Her name is a coincidence, I swear. Married to Steven, mother of Pauline.

Kisa Dust

Daughter of Amber and Jaron and a fairy. She´s a loner, disciplined, a perfectionist, a heavy sleeper and fan of the supernatural. Lifetime wish is physical perfection. Her last trait makes her a bit loopy at fullmoon, but all in all a very gentle sim. Married to Liang Yat Sen from China, mother of Shaoran.

Screenshot-e34

Liang Yat Sen

An EA premade sim from China (and thus not on the exchange). He´s neat, handy, good, never nude and easily impressed. In my game his LTW is leader of the free world. Despite not having the athletic trait, he tends to work out a lot. Married to Kisa, father of Shaoran.

Screenshot-e16

Pauline Dust

Daughter of Steven and Star. The poor girl was born in exact the moment her grandfather Paul died. Despite this fact, she´s a very levelheaded sim, if there is such a thing. She´s a virtuoso, a couch-patato, a perfectionist, vegetarian and brooding. She gained the additional traits handy and genius. Her LTW is to become a creature-robot crossbreader. Girlfriend of Jovan, mother of Miles.

Jovan O´Reilly.

He´s good, never nude, charismatic, a schmoozer and a heavy sleeper. I always thought, he was the “unborn baby O´Reilly” of the O´Reilly family, when you start a game in Dragon Valley. After digging through some old saves, it turns out, he´s not – he´s the son of Fiona O´Reilly, making “unborn baby” (whoever he is) his uncle. His LTW is golden tongue, golden fingers, which is a lot easier with his traits, than it was with Star´s. Lifelong boyfriend of Pauline, father of Miles.

Screenshot-e20

Kym Dust

Son of Nathan and Joe. He´s excitable, loves the cold, is a light sleeper, can´t stand art and is a bot-fan. He´s also born an IF, which is a bit silly, if you ask me. His lifetime wish is Fashion Phenomenom, which conflicts with his can´t stand art trait, but he doesn´t let that stop him. Falls for the sim with the worst traits in Dragon Valley. His LTW was a lot of fun. Boyfriend of Teagan, father of Fiona.

Screenshot-e36

Teagan MacAnna

A premade sim from Dragon Valley. She´s evil, dislikes children, is inappropriate, a genius and mean spirited. Her lifetime wish is empress of evil. She brings a lot of commotion into a household. Despite her traits one of the best sim-moms I ever had, and also very good with pets. Girlfriend of Kym, mother of Fiona.

screenshot-e18

Shaoran Dust

Son of Kisa and Liang. He´s clumsy, easily impressed, an equestrian, a bookworm and childish. Got the additional traits artistic and natural cook, has the hidden chinese trait. His lifetime wish is Major Master. A sweet, easygoing sim, who is happiest when he can play with his toys. Apart from that a quick learner and a very good student, making fullfilling his LTW easier than I thought it would be. Married to Macella, father of Beverly.

screenshot-e40

Macella Gallgher-Sackholme

A result of story progression in Dragon Valley, she´s also somehow related to the Mithrilen clan. She´s a perfectionist, a loser, excitable, eccentric and athletic. Her lifetime wish is monster maker. She didn´t fullfill it, because she was already an adult when moving in, with zero skillpoints in inventing, and a tendency to set herself on fire. Married to Shaoran, mother of Beverly.

screenshot-e28

Miles Dust

Son of Pauline and Jovan. He´s grumpy, loves the outdoors, is irresistible, clumsy and ambitious. Got the additional traits computer whizz and workoholic. His lifetime wish is to become an astronaut. Grumpy and irresistible is not a great combination – sims normally swarm him because he´s irresistible and then he angers them by being grumpy. Poor guy is never alone. His skin colour is actually a very light blue, which resulted in is daughter being green. Married to Gabby, father of Catherine.

screenshot-e80

Gabby Ahmed

An ea-premade sim from university. Gabby is a natural cook, absent-minded, family-oriented, a technophobe and has a green thumb. Her lifetime wish is culinary librarian. In my game she´s a vampire. I thought, that a absent-minded vampire would result in her regulary burning herself, but she actually takes very good care of herself. Mothers every pre young adult in sight, and also really gets along with nearly everyone. Sabotages the science station every chance she gets, and then rolls the wish to repair it. Married to Miles, mother of Catherine.

screenshot-e32

Fiona Dust

Daughter of Kym and Teagan. She´s artistic, clumsy, hot-headed, an equestrian and neat. Additional traits are ambitious and green thumb. Her lifetime wish is to become the empress of evil. A fun sim to play. She tends to incence people when left on her own, but her only real enemy is Miles, whom she beats up on a regular basis. Paints a lot and despite being neat, doesn´t clean up very often. Girlfriend of Eddy, mother of Randolph.

screenshot-e22

Eddy Mullis

An ea-premade sim from university. He´s a loner, a virtuoso, a perfectionist, a vegetarian and artistic. His lifetime wish is hit movie composer. I found him incredibly boring (sorry). Worst sim-dad ever. Boyfriend of Fiona, father of Randolph.

screenshot-e44

Catherine Dust

Daughter of Miles and Gabby and a vampire. She loves the heat, is brave, a cat person, a daredevil and an angler. Got the additional trait computer whiz. Her lifetime wish is news anchor. She´s got a real unique look and is fun to play. Married to Isolde, mother of Crystal.

screenshot-e59

Isolde Dragonfly

She´s a second generation djinn, so not blue. She´s a genius, good, unlucky, a couch potato and brave. Got the additional trait handy. Her lifetime wish is to become a five-star chef. The couch potato is strong in this one, left on her own, she doesn´t do anything than watch tv and play videogames. But she´s also a very gentle sim and tends to cook (very good) autonomously. Married to Catherine, mother of Crystal.

screenshot-e111

Randolph Dust

Took the title of favourite sim from his great-granddad Nathan. He´s a heavy sleeper, insane, a computer whiz, lucky and has a green thumb. Got the additional trait handy.

screenshot-e53

Beverly Dust

Daughter of Shaoran and Macella. She´s evil, a slob, frugal, dramatic and a diva. Her lifetime wish is superstar actor. She actually got on my nerves. It didn´t help, that I made her a mermaid. She doesn´t have any friends, only enemies, but she actually seems to love her husband. Married to Wigbald, mother of Arielle.

screenshot-e50

Wigbald Landgraab-Riese

Somehow related to the Lunar Lakes Landgraabs. He´s athletic, frugal, good, a diva and a cat person. His lifetime wish is creature-robot crossbreader. Insists on practicing balett, even if he does look ridiculous. Actually pretty pleasant for a diva. Was made a merman. Married to Beverly, father of Arielle.

Arielle Dust

Daughter of Beverly and Wigbald. She´s neurotic, clumsy, eco-friendly, proper and has a green thumb. Her lifetime wish is vocal legend. Was born a mermaid. She´s a pleasant sim to play, even if she get´s hit frequently with the no-clothes-after-shower-bug. Married to Stoutland, mother of Sebastian.

Stoutland Miller

He´s artistic, a dog person, a couch potato, loves the cold and is a hopeless romantic. His lifetime wish is master of the arts. Left on his own he tends to paint a lot or watch tv. He isn´t my sim but belongs to the Moustachy ISBI. You can download him here. Married to Arielle, father of Sebastian.

Liam Dust

Son of Randolph and Connie and born a witch. He´s absent-minded, clumsy, a daredevil, easily impressed and has no sense of humour. His lifetime wish is master magician. He´s fun to play, I like him very much. Married to Mortimer, father of Scott.

Mortimer Goth

He´s grumpy, artistic, ambitious, disciplined and excentric. Lifetime wish is home design hotshot, but I changed it to physical perfection.
