Peter Löwenbräu Griffin, Sr., born Justin Peter Griffin according to his birth records, is the protagonist of the show and title character. He’s a man of Irish descent currently residing in Quahog, Rhode Island with his wife Lois Griffin. In “Padre de Familia”, he was born in Mexico, where his mother had tried unsuccessfully to abort him. Peter agreed to abandon a revolt of his father-in-law Carter Pewterschmidt’s servants in exchange for him using his connections to make Peter a United States citizen. According to “I Dream of Jesus”, Peter attended Providence High School. Together, Peter and Lois have three children, Chris, Meg, and baby Stewie. After a mix up at a sperm bank, Peter also became the biological father of Bertram. In addition, he and Lois had a child named Peter Griffin Jr. who died when Peter shook him too much as revealed in “The Juice Is Loose”. Out of pity he also adopted an intellectual talking dog named Brian who formerly lived on the street as a stray, an accepted fact in Brian’s two adoption stories. In The Real Live Griffins he was portrayed by Tom Arnold.
