Andre was born in 2094 in the city of Salvador situated in Brazil. He doesn’t remember what happened to his parents, did they die or survive? It’s all a mystery for him as he was found by a demon at the age of 2, wrapped in a t-shirt with his name scribbled onto the tag. They brought him over to a mixed shelter home that took in humans and other creatures. For the next 7 years Andre lived there with other kids and adults while the war continued on outside. He was taken care of there, he was taught a fair amount on how to survive and he made sure to be the 'big man of the house'. He learnt how to cook by observing and helping out with chores and such with the other children. Since this was a mixed shelter, he befriended both demons and humans which is why he never bared any ill will against creatures that weren't humans. At the age of 9, two young men came and offered to take Andre in, he was hesitant to leave at first and it took him half a year before he finally agreed on going with the two males; who became his two dads. They moved far away to a part of California in America where they spent 4 more years living quietly and contently as the war slowly came to an end. In that time Andre started learning English and how to act and learn the things he missed out on educationally as he helped out at the flower shop his parents owned. He was enrolled in school soon later and things seemed to be settling in what you could assume was normality after so long. He kept an optimistic outlook on life and learnt more and more things, though he felt like the lack of demons in this area was worrying; as the years passed on, Andre became more and more invested in different type of demons, but kept on the low-down as many of his classmates and neighbours didn't have the nicest opinions on them.</span>
And then he learnt of DAMMED through rumours at his college, curious, Andre tried to search about the organization and from what little he found out, he was moved enough that he asked his parents’ permission to sign up. It took a while for them to agree but in the end after endless pleading, they let him apply, telling him that from now on the decision he's going to take are his and his alone. And with that in mind, Andre set off to Russia to immerse himself once again into a mixed environment of demons and humans with the hopes he could help keep peace between the two.
