Griffin Torrent is a science geek who resides in Bridgeport. Unlike his co-workers from other neighborhoods, he lacks the Computer Whiz trait. He is distant friends with the townie Pin Yin. He has a great range of skills: 5 in fishing, 7 in cooking, 9 in logic and mastered his gardening skill. His lifetime wish has nothing to do with his personality.
Griffin is 14 days away from becoming an adult. His last name, Torrent, may be a reference to torrent files, since EA lost 9 million dollars from illegally downloaded copies of The Sims 3 in torrent files.
He and Alexander French look very similar, with different hair color, skin color, clothes and glasses.
