Simis and Jocasta have raised two well-adjusted children: Bella, married to her childhood sweetheart, Mortimer Goth, who lives nearby with their two children, and Michael, who is just out of college. Jocasta now has time to garden, Simis to write, and when Michael moves out, maybe they’ll renovate. Trouble is, Michael doesn’t know what to do with his life.
Simis Bachelor (Elder, Journalist)
Although he has strict rules that he expects his family to abide by, Simis is mostly kind. He is enjoying being a grandfather and has an especially close relationship with grandson Alexander.
Jocasta Bachelor (Elder, Part-time Retail)
A dutiful wife and mother, Jocasta enjoys the arts, but her real hobbies are gardening and keeping her family happy by providing for their every need. Now that her children are grown and out of the house, Jocasta has time to pursue her hobbies.
Michael Bachelor (Young Adult, U Brite graduate, unemployed)
Michael, the ideal son, had lots of friends at school and loves to be outside, playing any sport. Now just out of college, he doesn’t know what to do with his life. There are just too many options. Perhaps the first thing would be to find a job and move out of his parents’ home.
