    #48 - The Four Sisters of the Apocalypse

    You aren’t quite sure what to make of the group standing in the lobby of your office. It’s only four young women, but they somehow seem more…intense than you would expect. Even Rose's little dog had retreated to its bed, silently.

    One of the young ladies is clad entirely in black, pants, vest top and all. Her short raven hair has a single streak of vivid purple, the same color as her eyes. Like the others, she has some solid muscle showing in her arms. She’s tall, nearly six feet you would guess. She introduces herself as “Roxanne Planes, also known as Gunk.” Seeing your confusion she explains that its short for gothic punk.

    On her left, one of her friends stands with military straightness. She has dark brown hair pulled into a ponytail and rich green eyes. She’s a perfect example of the beautiful girl next door looks. Clad casually in blue jeans and a t shirt under a leather jacket, she still looks ready for duty. Gunk introduces her as Carrie Logan.

    Journye is the third of the group, standing near a window. Somehow she reminds you of a wolf, with a lean narrow face and a stronger build. Surprisingly, she has royal blue hair and green eyes. Something about her and the way that she studies you makes you think that she’s been in more than her fair share of fights. She too wears a t-shirt that does nothing to hide her muscled arms and a pair of loose jeans.

    Gunk gestures to the last of her friends, Sarah, as if deliberately reminding you of her presence. And indeed she had slipped your mind, even though you had looked at her just minutes ago. Clad in all white, she wears a bodice style top, white pants and a white overcoat. Even her boots are white. Her black and white streaked hair is cut into a shaggy style that compliments her feline features. Something about her yellow eyes is very predatory and unnerving.

    Instead of inviting them back to your office, four of you settle into chairs in the lobby. Sarah opts to stand near Gunk. Clearly the leader of her little group, Gunk says, “We’ve heard you’re the best architect in town.”

    “Well, I try.” You say modestly.

    She smiles, friendly and disarming. “Well, we need a house. Several houses actually.”

    “Several?”

    “Yeah, one for each of us. Eventually. For now we need a place for the four of us while we get established. We are a band called The Four Sisters of the Apocalypse and got a solid signing bonus for our first album. We want to get established before we go for separate houses.”

    “Makes sense,” you say, not entirely believing her claim of a band. Not with the constant scanning of the room and general alertness they are displaying. “What would you like?

    “This first house is going to be mine,” says Gunk. “I like space and privacy. Since we dont know how long its going to take to get established, we will need rooms for all four of us. Preferably with our own bathrooms. It could get ugly if we have to share one or two bathrooms. We need someplace to practice our music. I sing and play guitar, sarah plays drums, Journye’s on keyboard and Carrie plays bass. We are all big on fitness and sparring, so we need a place to work out. And a garage. Sarah babies her car.”

    “All very doable. Whats my budget?”

    “About 60k.” Gunk tells you. “And if you could decorate their bedrooms in their favorite colors, I suppose I could put up with that. My favorite color is purple.”

    Carrie makes a rude gesture at Gunk then says, “My favorite is brown. Journye’s is blue and Sarah’s, surprise surprise, is white.”

    “Not a problem. Anything else?”

    “How soon?” Asks Gunk with another friendly smile..

    Brief:

    4 bed 4 bath, decorated in the girls favorite colors
    Gym
    Studio
    Garage
    Privacy and landscaping
    40×30 or larger
    60k budget

    Sim Challenge:

    Make the girls:

    Gunk is creative, self-assured, and outgoing
    Carrie is a bro, self-assured and outgoing
    Journye is athletic, cheerful and loves the outdoors
    Sarah is creative, loner, genius
