Vlad the Progenitor

I promised this over a whole month ago and I know you've been waiting. It's finally here! Introducing Vlad the Progenitor! >:)

A while ago on another discussion board here, we were comparing Vlad's offspring and his dominant genes, so I decided to do a little experiment... Make Vlad father at least one child with all the best-looking females in town, to see if it was possible for Straud to have any beautiful babies. To speed up the process, he created a few flirty clubs, "Vlad's Beauties", "Vlad the Dad" and "Vlad's Baby Mamas". After 30 children, we are finally here. Was Vlad's quest to have beautiful offspring successful?

Today we have his oldest 9 children, who have all aged into teenagers. The younger 21 are still either children or toddlers and they will be added in time as they age up.

With each set of children, I'll post a picture of the mother and then her children, so we can see the resemblance. I'll say which children were born vampires and which ones were born human. Everything behind spoilers because otherwise it's way too long.


Here is Pandora Cruz and her twins.

Her human son. He seems to resemble Vlad strongly, except the eyes. They resemble his mother's.

Her vampire daughter. Her mouth is her mother's and the cheekbones a little but, but they're at a more extreme angle, otherwise she's also another Straud clone.

    The next mother is Gilda Malone. Let's see the results.

    Gilda Malone, mother of twins.

    The vampire son of Gilda. His mother's eyebrows and a less refined version of her nose. Similar faceshape and downturn of mouth.

    The vampire daughter of Gilda. Mother's mouth and eyes.

    Rose Black, mother to a single, vampire daughter.

    Vampire daughter of Rose Black. Having her mother's mouth and face shape has certainly helped and she doesn't have the Straud nose. Unfortunately, the strange Straud eyes are still there.

    Lana Vixen, the female Don Lothario of town :sweat_smile: mother to a single vampire daughter.

    wRim5ki.png
    Vampire daughter of Lana Vixen. I think we have success here! She resembles her mother strongly, but her face is thinner, with steeper angles. The only obvious Straud feature is her hair and skin colour, as well as her vampirism. It worked! Finally a good-looking Straud offspring.

    Mission beautiful: SUCCESS! :D

    Next up is Ai Sakurai, mother to a single, vampire son.

    wixrw11.png
    Vampire son of Ai Sakurai. He clearly has the Asian version of Straud's eyes, which are much improved and the only other feauture to strongly resemble his father's is the cheekbones. The rest of him resembles his mother, but he clearly doesn't have her good looks. Well, he isn't as horrifying as Vlad and he looks pretty normal so let's just rate this as an almost, yes? :sweat_smile:

    The finally lady of the night is Jessica Rabbit, yes that Jessica Rabbit mother to human twin girls. I can only assume that they're identical because they look too much alike. Does the game actually give naturally-born identical twins?

    l4tFUCx.png
    Her first daughter. Mother's eyes, eyebrows and mouth, father's nose, cheekbones and face shapes. If it wasn't for the nose, she would look quite good.

    p08ALXV.png

    Her second daughter. Same as her sister, mother's eyes, eyebrows and mouth, father's nose, cheekbones and face shapes. Even Jessica's extreme features couldn't dilute out that nose :joy:

    So that's all for now. It took a while capturing all that, but there will be more to come. Do you agree with the verdicts? Who is your favourite offspring? :relaxed:

    This was not only an interesting read, but also a wonderful look at TS4's genetics! A very clever idea and, it seems, well executed!
    Lana Vixen's daughter probably turned out the most normal-looking, which I was not expecting, considering Lana's kinda scary eyebrows.

    I think she is the best looking of his kids. The rest have an interesting look. Congratulations it took me two generatios to make good looking sims from his family line.

    Thank you :relaxed: Lana was created as a femme fatale, so that's why she has those scary arched brows. They always seem to have that look, don't they? Her daughter's brows actually seem to follow the same angle, but I think the different brow type softened the look somewhat. I have to say, she might even be better-looking than her mother, which is quite a feat considering who her father is! :joy:

    @mctsimmer It took a lot of ladies to get that one pretty child. I agree, the others do look interesting and they have some character, but they're so obviously Straud :sweat_smile:

    I think I'll have Vlad have children will all the pre-made ladies in one of my games, then post the results...

    I love this thread @astera00!!! Such a creative experiment. I absolutely agree with your choices as Lana Vixen daughter with Vlad is the best looking. But I also like Ai Sakurai's son. He has a very unique look to him. I actually really like him. Any chance he is on the Gallery? I'd love to use him for one of the fathers in my 100 baby challenge save.

    I’m amazed his genetics didn’t ruin every single one of them, but those results are promising. Thanks for sharing! This was awesome to see. Interested in seeing how the other turn out. I think Lana’s daughter and Ai’s Son turned out best. Vlad’s other features aren’t great, but that nose is the worst. Feel the worst for those female sims who inherited it.

    Lana's daughter is really pretty , I also I don't think Ai's son is that bad very sharp features sure but not too bad. I like how the genetics are the most recent time I played the pancakes they mixed pretty well some of the kids were darker and Eliza's red hair really stuck on. I've given Vlad makeovers and sometimes it seems whatever he looks like is just strong with his children.
    Finally changed my words here again...nothing fun, moving on.

    I like some of the results, but it would be a horrifying gamble to breed those sims further.

    I now want to edit the gender options for Vlad and do the 100 baby challenge with him.

    @Sha2520032003 I'm glad you like it :blush: I've uploaded Ai's son to the gallery for you to use, along with his mother (so there's a lovely grandmother if you need one). I didn't know his name was Brock! Like in Pokemon :sweat_smile: I didn't name any of them. They were each born elsewhere as Vlad was romancing another lady, so all I received were texts telling me that yet another baby had been born.

    If there are any sims you'd all like to see on the gallery, just say and I'll upload them. Only a few of these ladies are already on there (mostly because I like to write amusing bios before I upload and I haven't thought of anything yet for the ones who aren't on there).

    Thanks so much @astera00!!! Awesome, I'd love to have the grandmother, as I like my Sims to have extended family. If you'd like to see any offspring from Brock in my 100 baby challenge definitely let me know...I'll be more than happy to share. I just started with my 2nd matriarch in 100 baby....she has interesting genetics so I'm excited to see how her kids will turn out like lol.

    Tonight, another set of siblings to showcase. These three live in a mansion with their mothers and have the bonus of being cousins and step-cousins. First up, mother Cassandra D'Arcy.

    LopPo0x.png
    Her vampire daughter. Poor, poor girl. I don't know what to say. She has nothing, nothing of her mother beyond colouring. Pure Straud, completely unmistakable. Can you imagine having a secret affair with Vlad while you're married and your child grows up to this? :sweat_smile: "No honey, I swear Vlad isn't the father!" :joy: She doesn't even have the charm of her half sisters who got the nose.

  • astera00astera00 Posts: 247 Member
    Next up is Seline Astor D'Arcy. She's actually Cassandra's sister-in-law in my regular game, but in this experiment she has no husband. She also has an identical twin sister who will be up next. It's interesting to see how their results differ.

    1ry6TtG.png?1
    Her human son. He has his mother's nose mostly, colouring and cheekbones. He looks absolutely miserable, doesn't he? If he had a better mouth, maybe he'd be passable. Umm, nah. The Straud eyes are too creepy.

    Finally, Seline's twin sister Celestine Astor. She also had a son, but he's a vampire.

    Eg8NIua.png
    Celestine's vampire son. Not the horror of his brother/cousin, even though he does have the Straud nose, but almost normal, if not good-looking. Almost.

    So 12 down and 18 to go. Now I really wish I could follow them to school. Can you imagine what the poor teacher who steps into their classroom will be thinking? :joy: :sweat_smile: I feel a little sorry for these ladies, putting them through this. At least they have good lives in their regular saves.

    LOL Thank you for this thread!!! Because of these experiments I decided my female will not "breed" with Vlad... LOL I wonder how Caleb's offspring looks like, did anyone make an experiment like this? Or any other pre-made Sim that is worth hooking up with :smiley: But Vlad's features are just too overwhelming especially for female offspring :open_mouth:

    That is one strong nose! But some of the kids are not actually outlandish looking and kind of interesting :)

    I love this post. So cool to see Vlad's kids. Very interesting too. That nose, man. Of course those eyes and mouth with another nose is almost worse.

    Honestly if you change the eyes, he wouldn't be so bad imo.
