|Admiral Landgraab is SimNation's most tragic naval hero. After a series of dashing exploits in his youth, Landgraab settled into a downward spiral of mercantile ventures, gunboat diplomacy and inevitable treaty breaking that became synonymous with the Landgraab family to this day. He is pictured here just before his undoing at the hands of disgruntled island natives.|
Admiral Landgraab is a Sim mentioned in a few The Sims expansion packs such as Hot Date and Vacation. Admiral Landgraab is presumed to be a long-dead historical figure, and to have been killed by natives - possibly by the Native Sims of Vacation Island.
It is clear that he is a member of the Landgraab Dynasty, but his position in the family tree is unknown. In The Sims 3: World Adventures, he is sometimes described as Admiral Landgraab I, possibly suggesting he could have been Malcolm Landgraab I; therefore being the patriarch of the Landgraab family.
Champs Les Sims[edit | edit source]
Admiral Landgraab lived in Champs Les Sims almost sixty years before the start of The Sims 3. Landgraab took credit for the invention of the delicious nectar beverage, along with Anastasia Necteaux, and was easily believed due to his massive and impressive estate. At some point in his life, according to Landgraab's groundskeeper, he sent his men to kill Anastasia Necteaux, possibly to take all the credit of creating nectar. However, the woman was rescued by a man named James Vaughan. Later in his life, he wanted to learn about an ancestor of Anastasia so ventured to a tomb with his men. They asked Necteaux for directions, but she pointed them in the wrong direction, and were never seen again; contradicting previous statements that he was killed by natives. However, Landgraab's remains can be found somewhere in Chateau du Landgraab, so his body must have been recovered.
Chateau du Landgraab[edit | edit source]
Chateau du Landgraab was Admiral Landgraab's estate, located in Champs Les Sims, and also features as a tomb in World Adventures. It includes two double-bed bedrooms, a bedroom with two single beds, a baby room, several bathrooms, a private study, fireplace, kitchen, dining room, private library, groundskeeper shack and more. As it had a baby room and two single beds, it is possible that he had children.
Admiral Landgraab was a worrywart obsessed with military code, so his tomb is "shut tighter than Napoleon's tomb," according to local historians such as Francois Lambert.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Admiral Landgraab had a strange personality. He appeared to be cold-hearted, sadistic and gold-hungry, however also quite neurotic, which explains why his estate has so many traps.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- He could be a parody of Napoleon. Both are French, and have a cold-hearted and gold-hungry personality.
- Appearance-wise, he greatly resembles Lord Admiral Horatio Nelson. As well, both sustained injuries in battle that caused them to lose sight in one eye.
