Lois Patrice Griffin (née Pewterschmidt) is the wife of Peter Griffin and mother of Meg, Chris, and Stewie Griffin. She lives in The Griffin House on 123, Spooner Street in Quahog, Rhode Island.


Lois Patrice Pewterschmidt was born to Carter and Barbara Pewterschmidt in Palm Springs, California. She was raised along with her sister Carol and her brother Patrick (who would be sent to a mental asylum when Lois was only 4 and wouldn't remember him). Lois was brought up by very wealthy parents in an upper-class society, where she was taught to be superior to others and think only of herself and those who are among her on her level. Unlike with most people, Lois didn't let this turn her into a snobbish, and self-centered individual, as this way of thinking didn't leave too much of an impression on her. She was taught to think little of others, but also thought little of acting in such a manner.

When she was 18, Lois went on vacation to Quahog, Rhode Island, where her aunt, Marguerite Pewterschmidt lived. Specifically, in the higher class district of the town known as Upper-Class Quahog. This was Lois' first vacation, without the rest of her immediate family, so this was a big thing for her. While she was on that vacation, Lois had gained instant popularity among other teenagers for her beauty and heir to such a wealthy and well-known family. These teenagers were mainly horny, babe hungry guys and stuck up, popular girls who also lived in the high-class area of Quahog. Many times on this vacation, she visited the Upper-class private swimming pool, where a lot of the activities that she and her friends went on, and where a lot of her popularity expanded. At the same time she was there, a middle-class citizen named Peter got a summer job, working as the poolboy at the same Upper-Class swimming pool, and one of those days, he managed to have crossed paths with Lois. Lois started to like Peter when she first met him and surely thought he was funny. Peter instantly fell in love with her, but it took time for Lois to come around. After she had danced with Peter at the Newport Country Club Dance, she too fell in love with him and their love lasted on.

Lois' father, Carter was very disapproving of her being in a relationship with a lower class citizen, but Lois didn't let him break them apart. She spent the rest of her youth with him and moved into his house with him, (where they currently live). She married him in the Protestant Church of Quahog, much to the dismay of many of her elder relatives. People such as her Carter and Babs refused to show up, but other Pewterschmidt family members such as Carol were there and accepting of her choice in marriage. Lois underwent the Griffin family name and started a life with Peter Griffin.

Lois never planned on giving birth to any children or becoming a mother in any way, in fact, she was strongly opposed to it. Peter wasn't as strictly against the idea of kids, but agreed with Lois' plan because, personally, he was fine with either option. So, they made their agreement and planned to stick with it. However, this plan was not set to last because one night, while Peter and Lois were having sex, Peter's condom broke and Lois had officially become impregnated. When Lois found out, she was terrified and didn't know what to do. The two of them had the determination for nothing, but to get rid of the baby and spent all their time focusing on that. At the time, abortion was illegal in Quahog and Lois was against it, so she rules that out of the options. Peter on the other hand, argued with her, saying that it was the only way to get rid of it. The argument got way worse and out of hand and the two of them continued on in a long-winded fight over what to do with the baby. Peter and Lois had become emotionally torn apart and held a lot more anger for each other than ever before.

Lois' ongoing feud with Peter, really got to her emotionally and caused her to say and do things she didn't mean, to the point where it even made her contemplate suicide. In the heat of the anger, Lois had openly and informally told Peter this in a late-night argument, saying that she was going to kill herself. Peter, also being overcome by the anger, said that he was just fine with that. This argument started and ended shortly before bed, She brought herself to an attempt to leave her house in the middle of the night jump off the roof of a tall building, somewhere in the city. Peter woke up, shortly afterwards and was struck with fear when he noticed she was gone. He drove off in hurry, trying to find Lois. She jumped off of a twelve story building, feeling only boldness and a lack of regret the entire time she fell, but Peter found her shortly before the jump. Peter yelled at Lois and begged her not to do it. This gained attention from everyone else in the city, a few people had taken a bunch of mattresses out, in a desperate attempt to save her, when there was very little time before she went through with it. Miraculously, she survived the fall, with enough mattresses to keep her alive, only she still got seriously injured and put into an arm cast, a back brace, and a neck brace. When she woke up in the hospital the next day, she was shocked and filled with remorse that she actually went through with doing all of those horrible things. She and Peter made up and decided to stop arguing and being so hateful toward each other. Lois and Peter later came to the conclusion that they should follow through with having a child and a few months later, Meg was born, officially beginning the Griffin family.



Peter GriffinEdit

Peter and Lois are married to each other. Lois is always disapproving of Peter's antics, but usually never steps in to actually try and stop him. She is very passive about what he does and usually only limits her action to a few verbal complaints about the situation.

Chris GriffinEdit

Lois is Chris' mother.

Meg GriffinEdit

Lois is Meg's mother, but she does not like her. Like with Peter and everyone else in the family, Lois abuses Meg all the time. The way Lois goes about her abuse is usually pretty verbal. She makes a bunch of extremely rude and condescending comments toward her. She also sees herself as superior to Meg because she's far more sexy and attractive than she is.

Stewie GriffinEdit

Lois loves Stewie more than everyone else in the family and is oblivious to his hatred for her. She doesn't understand Stewie when he talks to her.

Brian GriffinEdit

Lois is good friends with Brian. At this point, she is fully aware of the fact that Brian wants to have sex with her, but knows for a cold, dead fact, that he never will.
