Desdemona has memories of learning two toddlerskills, but her parents don't remember teaching her. Although she has blonde hair, her natural hair color is red. She also has the recessive allele for green eyes. Desdemona's facial structure is identical to that of the 2nd face template in Create a Sim, except the eyebrows and lips are slightly thinner.
Desdemona has blonde hair tied in pigtails, and has grey eyes. She wears a fairy costume and her face paint appears to be like pinkish-magenta wings. When the family is first moved onto a lot, she is 6 days from becoming a teenager.
When editing in SimPE, Desdemona's zodiac sign is not recognized. This could explain why she doesn't have a zodiac sign mismatch in-game like most pre-made playable Sims from the base game do.
In Shakespeare's Othello, the villainous Iago successfully persuades Othello that Desdemona is unfaithful and uses this belief to destroy their lives, eventually leading Othello to murder her. Her name, 'Desdemona', means 'unfortunate' in Greek.
