The Murray family

Murray E famElliot Murray used to be a Science teacher at The Beehive, but since Alice´s retirement in 04, he’s The Beehive’s headmaster. He’s known as a disciplined but fair man and most teens like him a lot. Elliot is a very social and openminded man. He makes friends easily. His younger brother Adrian is the town’s “big” tv star, but Elliot doesn’t care about things like “standing”.

Hannah Murray-Cohen comes from a Jewish family. To her parents it was clear; she would have to become a doctor. (I know, I know, stereotype much? Hey, it wasn’t my plan, it was all Mr. and Mrs. Cohen, honest!) Luckily for her parents, Hannah always really liked helping people and as a doctor she could do this for a living. Being a doctor is hard work though, and although Hannah loves her job, she sometimes despises it because she’s away from home a lot.

Seth Murray is a genuinely nice guy. He doesn’t judge people and is always ready to lend a helping hand.

Rachel Murray is a very shy and caring girl. She cares about the world around her and all living creatures in it. Rachel doesn’t eat meat. Each to their own, but as far as Rachel is concerned, it’s just not right. Rachel feels most comfortable at home with her family or best friend Sadie. She has had a crush on her classmate Finn for as long as she can remember. He’s just so dreamy… If only she had gotten up the nerve to tell him about it, who knows what could have been. But she didn’t, thinking he would never like her anyway. And now it’s too late, because at summercamp in SimJuly ’03, Finn got together with Sadie’s sister Esme… Rachel still feels heartbroken…

Ruby Murray is the youngest of the Murray children. She’s as friendly as the rest of the family. Ruby is also somewhat of a tomboy. As a kid she loved climbing trees and she’s still braver than both her older siblings. She never really got all the fuss her sister and Sadie made over  boys.

    • Awww thanks! Rachel is lovely, isn’t she? I actually feel so bad for her. 😥 She’ll find a cute boy yet, I’ll make sure of it!


  1. I love this family! All the teens!!!! Seth (Seth is such a beautiful name) seems like a cool dude with his own band and everything *sigh* And poor Rachel with her heart being broken (you’ll meet someone else, sweetie), and my favourite: Ruby!!!


    • I love the name Seth too 🙂 I wanted them all to have Jewish names. And this guy is so cool! So is Ruby 🙂 Rachel might not be very cool, but she might just be the sweetest sim in Honeycomb Valley. I’m glad you like them, Sara-love!


    • I’m not sure these teens will see a lot of drama though. They’re all so sweet. Although, Rachel already had her share of drama of course.
