The Edwards family

Without a doubt, an interesting family to say the least. Vicar Edwards and his wife and many kids…

Edwards fam sans Becca

John Edwards is Honeycomb Valley’s vicar. He’s a very strict and religious man. All the Edwards children have received biblical names. He’s is firmly against birth control and believes a woman’s job is taking care of the house and the children. No hanky panky before marriage either. His daughters should help out their mother around the house when they come of teen age and his sons should read a lot so they can go to good schools. There’s only one school in Honeycomb Valley though and John would rather not send his kids there because of the short shorts they make the girls wear for gym, but he has no choice.

  • Age: Young adult
  • Born: October 1965
  • Traits: Good, no sense of humor, never nude, technophobe, schmoozer
  • Job: Vicar
  • Zodiac: Libra
  • Father: Ds. Edwards
  • Mother: Mrs. Edwards
  • Siblings: Many!
  • Children: Rebecca, Martha, John Jr., Joshua, Miriam, Ruth, Joseph
  • Other family: –
  • Best friend(s): –
  • Romance history: It was decided by both sets of parents that John would marry Amy..

Amy Edwards-Hill is John’s wife. That is how she feels too. Not much else than “John’s wife”. She takes care of the house, the kids, the garden, the food, whilst John sits back and reads the newspaper. It’s her place, isn’t it? Amy is very religious as well. She loves her children a lot. Much more so than she does her husband. She feels sorry for Rebecca and is praying John Jr. won’t turn out to be a copy of his dad. It seems to be heading that way though… Amy has been able to prevent John from knocking her up ever since the birth of Ruth, by carefully planning her bedtime and making sure on most nights she wouldn’t hit the bed until after John was asleep but how long can she keep this up..

  • Age: Young adult
  • Born: March 1967
  • Traits: Nurturing, family oriented, green thumb, natural cook, shy
  • Job: Housewife
  • Zodiac: Pisces
  • Father: Mr. Hill
  • Mother: Mrs. Hill
  • Siblings: Many!
  • Children: Rebecca, Martha, John Jr., Joshua, Miriam, Ruth, Joseph
  • Other family: –
  • Best friend(s): –
  • Romance history: Much to Amy’s despair, her parents chose for her to marry John. There’s never been anyone else.

Martha Edwards is the opposite of her older sister. Being second, the burden of having to help out didn’t fall on her quite as much as it did on Rebecca, but either way, she’s different. She will NOT stand back and conform to her dad’s stupid rules. She will NOT settle for being a “housewife” to some prick. She will WORK and be SUCCESSFUL and INDEPENDENT!   She used to pretend to follow her father’s rules around the house, but acted completely differently elsewhere. She changed her clothes at school and got a job without her parents knowing. When Martha witnessed how her parents “chose” a husband for Rebecca, she decided enough had to be enough!  She’s no longer hiding who she really is! If they don’t like it, that’s their problem!

John Edwards Jr. was of course named after his father. Upon his birth, dad felt he finally had an heir. My game gets confused with them both being named John though. It often generates the son’s portrait for things when it’s actually about the dad. John agrees with his father on basically everything. Follow the rules, live by God’s intended plan, women should be in the kitchen, thy shall not lie, etc. John is not very liked by other kids. Or adults for that matter. His teachers always said he was “not a regular child” which to them was worrying, but to dad felt like a compliment. John doesn’t really have any friends, but he thinks the other kids his age are “loose canons” anyway with their giggling and running around.

Joshua Edwards is a nice boy. He doesn’t want to sit back and just read like his dad wishes. He wants to play outside, help his mum out in the garden or paint. He doesn’t understand why there are “women’s jobs” and “men’s jobs”. He thinks dad must have understood the bible wrong. People should be able to do what they want, right? As long as it doesn’t hurt anyone?
