Curious family
In search of truth and mystery, the Curious brothers got more than they were "expecting." Can Pascal, Lazlo, and Vidcund cope with their new roles as cosmic parents?

In line with the Curious family's inherent longing for the discovery of knowledge (even if it works towards their own detriment), little does Marshall know what his current research at the Science Facility will mean for generations of his family to come.

The Curious family has been closely associated with weird science ever since they appeared in The Sims 2. The early Curiouses appeared in The Sims 3: Ambitions as a family deeply interested in science.


The Sims 2

The Curiouses in The Sims 2 have a fondness for aliens. Glarn Curious was abducted by Pollination Technician 9 and had twin girls, Lola and Chloe Curious. Pascal Curious is pregnant with an alien child when the family is first played, and Jenny Smith married Pollination Technician 9, her half-sisters' father, and has had two children with him (Johnny and Jill Smith). Vidcund will be abducted and impregnated, if directed by the player to use one of the telescopes when the player first starts playing the household.

Their starting funds are §4242. This may be a reference to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, in which 42 is the answer to life, the universe and everything.

The family relationships between the brothers and their half-alien relatives are not set. Checking with SimPE shows that the brothers know their full sister, Jenny, but not her husband or children. They also do not know their half-sisters Lola and Chloe.

The Curious family has a box of pizza in their house at the start of the game.

All three Curious brothers have the same voice actor - David Boat.

The Sims 3

Marshall Curious is a busy scientist in Twinbrook, but the family struggles to pay the mortgage. Cherish Curious took up teaching to make ends meet, and discovered that she loved the career. Notzo Curious, grandfather of the Curious brothers and Jenny in The Sims 2, is only a toddler in The Sims 3: Ambitions, and is best friends forever with Zo Whelohff. The Curious family live far out of town in a large three-story home with a sizeable, but empty garden, a Drafting table, a Scraptronic™ Workbench and a large basement. Their home is located in one of Twinbrook's many swamps. There is a Sim named Steward Curious buried in Twinbrook, although his relationship to the family is never stated, although he bears a striking resemblance to Marshall, and has the same haircut and facial hair, further suggesting some sort of relation.

The Curiouses are one of the few families that have five generations, along with Veronaville's Monty and Capp families.


Curious: to be interested in exploring and learning about one's surrounding environment.
Pascal Curious : Hebrew for "associated with Easter (or Passover)". It may also be a reference to the famous French mathematician Blaise Pascal. A pascal is also the S.I. unit of pressure.
Vidcund Curious: a Norwegian first name, which fell out of fashion as Vidkun Quisling became leader of the Nazi puppet government of Norway during World War II.
Lazlo Curious: Means rules with glory. Also spelled Laszlo.
Glarn Curious: So the name sounds like "darn curious". In The Sims: Superstar, the song "Glabe Glarn" could be sung in Studio Town to make money and raise star level.
Kitty Curious: her name might be a play on the saying, "Curiosity killed the cat."
Glabe Curious: named after a song that came with The Sims: Superstar, Glabe Glarn could be sung in studio town to make money and raise star level.
Notzo Curious: possibly meaning 'Not so curious' as if signifying that he was not a very curious Sim.
Zo Curious: possibly meaning 'So curious' as if signifying that she was a very curious Sim.
Cherish Curious: possibly meaning 'Curiously careful' or 'curious careful'
Bunny Curious: her name means 'small curious rabbit'
Marshall Curious: probably meaning 'Curious Marshal'
