Peter Löwenbräu Griffin Sr. (born Justin Peter Griffin) is the patriarch of the Griffin family. He is an unconventional 44-year-old overweight, lazy, immature, unintelligent alcoholic Irish-American living in Quahog.

He has held a number of blue-collar jobs, including as an employee of the Happy-Go-Lucky Toy Factory and, currently, at the shipping department of the Pawtucket Brewery.

He is married to Lois Griffin (née Pewterschmidt). He is also the father of 18-year-old daughter Meg and sons, teenager Chris and one-year-old Stewie. His pet is a talking 8-year-old dog, Brian, who the family has had since he was a stray.

One of Peter's favorite pastimes is drinking beer, specifically Pawtucket Patriot Ale, usually at The Drunken Clam with his best friends Cleveland, Joe, and Quagmire.


Early life[edit]

Peter Löwenbräu Griffin was born in Mexico City, Mexico. His mother, Thelma, was in Mexico getting an abortion; however, during the procedure Peter was born. After his birth, she took Peter back to Rhode Island where he was raised by his mother and adoptive father Francis in the Catholic faith. However, his mother had never filled out his citizenship papers, making him an illegal immigrant.[1] According to his birth certificate, he was born Justin Peter Griffin in Quahog.[2] After Francis' accidental death caused by Peter, Peter discovers his biological father is Mickey McFinnigan, an alcoholic from Ireland.[3]



Peter's personality traits tend to change from day-to-day. He is, for the most part, an inconsiderate, obnoxious person with an a childish sense of humor. Despite these negative traits, Peter is also consistently shown to be a loving, caring man who truly loves his friends and family above all-else. Peter's hobbies tend to be much more consistent, he loves to drink beer, watch TV and films, listen to music and masturbate, and from time-to-time, he's shown a keen interest in video games. Peter appears to be a fan of science-fiction, especially Star Trek and comic book movies like Superman and Batman. Additionally, Peter has shown an interest in space and space travel on a handful of times, even going as far as to buy his own space-shuttle. has a poopy butt
