The Sims 4 Realm of Magic: Meet the Residents!

Presented by EA Game Changers

Welcome to Glimmerbrook!

Bubble bubble, toil and trouble… The babbling brook that winds through the sleepy forested town of Glimmerbrook isn’t all that’s bubbling in this seemingly normal town. Rumour has it that if you follow the dirt path along the creek, you’ll come across a mysterious portal that has the power to transport you to a world of magic. But those are just rumours, aren’t they? Surely magic isn’t real? Perhaps getting to know the neighbours will reveal the truth. What mystical secrets are the residents of Glimmerbrook hiding?

The Charm Household

Household Description

The Charm family has produced generations of distinguished Spellcasters, as Minerva often reminds her children. Gemma resents her family’s high expectations even though she secretly wants to make them proud. Darrel is an aspiring duelist who just got engaged to Emilia, a newly ascended Spellcaster who has a lot to live up to.

Household Notes

  • The Charm family lives at Rock Ridge Canyon in Glimmerbrook.
  • The family’s surname is a magical pun (of course). A charm is a small trinket imbued with magical properties.
  • Interestingly, the family’s name is Charm Family in Manage Households, rather than just Charm. The reason for this is unknown, but it might be a nod to the family’s strong magical lineage.
  • Minerva, Darrel, and Gemma all have the hidden Strong Bloodline trait, which is acquired by being born into a family of strong Spellcasters. Emilia has no hidden bloodline traits. The household description confirms that Emilia was not born a Spellcaster; she only recently became one.
  • Minerva Charm seems to have been inspired by Minerva McGonagall from the Harry Potter book and film series. They share a first name and are both older, wiser magical women with strict values.
  • The name Gemma is possibly a reference to the importance of crystals in potion brewing.
  • Emilia’s surname, Ernest, is a nod to her enthusiastic, eager-to-please personality.
  • Minerva and Darrel know Simeon Silversweater, the Sage of Practical Magic. Gemma knows L. Faba, the Sage of Mischief Magic. Emilia knows Morgyn Ember, the Sage of Untamed Magic. This suggests that these Sages are the mentors of those Sims.
  • Minerva appears to have a strong dislike of Mischief Magic. She knows no Mischief spells and dislikes L. Faba. Gemma is on good terms with L. Faba and knows primarily Mischief spells. The household description hints at some tension between the two because of this.
  • Darrel dislikes his neighbour, Tomax Collette, although the reason for this is uncertain. They appear to be connected through Emilia, who is friends with both Tomax and his roommate, Grace.
  • There is workout equipment in Darrel and Emilia’s bedroom, most likely for Darrel, who has Fitness skill and is Hot-Headed. Gemma has an easel in her room to go with her Art Lover trait.

Household Notes

Household Notes

  • Morgyn, Simeon, and L. do not live in Glimmerbrook. They are listed as Not In World under Household Management and show up as three separate households with no household description.
  • Unlike other homeless households of one Sim, which typically only have §20,000 in funds, Simeon, Morgyn, and L. each have §50,000 in household funds.
  • Morgyn, Simeon, and L. are the three Sages representing the three schools of magic. They can perform the Rite of Ascension on other Sims to turn them into Spellcasters and have various other abilities related to their role as Sages.
  • If the player chooses to play as, marry, or move in Morgyn, Simeon, or L., they will permanently lose their role as Sage and a random new Sim will take their place.
  • All three Sages are experts in their school of magic, as well as in alchemy. They all know how to brew every potion in the game and can cast every spell within their school.
  • Morgyn is a transgender man, making him the second transgender Sim to be introduced to the game as a premade townie. The first was Lia Huata, a transgender woman who came with the Island Living expansion pack. Morgyn cannot have children unless the player alters this setting in CAS.
  • Simeon, Morgyn, and L. are all friends with each other, but L. dislikes Minerva Charm. All three Sages have various other friends/acquaintances, indicating that these Sims are magical pupils of theirs.
  • L. Faba is a reference to Elphaba, a fictional witch in the Broadway production, Wicked. It’s unclear what the L. in her name stands for.
  • Morgyn’s surname is a reference to fire, which suits his position as the Sage of Untamed Magic. This school of magic contains many powerful elemental spells.
  • Morgyn is featured in both the reveal trailer and the gameplay trailer for Realm of Magic.
