Duarte's facial structure is almost if not identical to the 19th Maxis face template in Create a Sim. His wife is unknown, according to his memories he had Inigo with his wife who appears to be improperly deleted. When looking at Duarte's family tree, it will appear as if there are more Sims in his family tree. However, when clicking on it, no extra Sims are to be seen. This is due to Duarte's wife being improperly deleted. Another reference to this is that his memories are getting married to "$Subject" which is a placeholder for a Sim without a character file. When attempting to open his family ties in SimPE, it will crash. If the players attempt to package the Gere family to a file, it will also crash. It appears that his wife being deleted was a mistake by the developers.
