Andrew was never meant to be born. The son of Malyar and an expatriate Undulqai (a race of fertile and mysterious surrogate mothers), Andrew was prophesized as the Bringer of Destruction by Orodri prophets. The Library at Orodri sent agents to end Andrew's mother's life before he could be born, but before she died, Andrew's mother managed to transfer her pregnancy to another woman. Andrew's birthmother abandoned him soon after his birth, but street urchins found him and sold him to slavery. Currently, Andrew serves on the crew of a seafaring vessel delivering goods to and from the villages near Mondainya.
