Andersen can usually be found sporting some type of hat -- be it baseball cap or beanie -- to cover his face. Aside from this telltale feature, however, his style is wholly unremarkable. He's the type of person who wears essentially the same outfit everyday. However, the fade of his jeans and the holes in his favourite jacket provide a sort of lived-in comfort that can only old clothes can achieve. He is often spotted with a tattered, brown shoulder bag slung over his shoulder, a disheveled sketchbook in one hand, and his earbuds wedged firmly in his ears.

Andie is a kind soul, but his semi-permanent scowl is an immediate turn off. Upon first meeting, Andersen comes across as curt, intimidating, and generally disinterested in anything outside of himself. He's not unkind, but, at least initially, he doesn't come across as someone with whom you'd want to spend a lot of time. However, if you manage to work your way past his cagey exterior -- although it might take some time and more than a few awkward run-ins -- you'll find that Andie is a shy, uncoordinated person who tip-toes through conversations, picking his words with care so as not to offend. He is entirely whipped by his three little sisters, his scowl masks a mind that is constantly daydreaming, and he likes to believe that everything happens for a reason. And although his faith may waver, Andie hopes he'll end up on the right path.

When Andersen was thirteen, his mother disappeared. No note. No warning. Suddenly, she was gone. Her clothes. Her pictures. The places where she'd left an impression, scrubbed clean. Andersen watched his father fall apart and didn't know what to do. His little sisters asked him where their mother had gone, and he didn't know how to answer. His youngest sister, just a baby at the time, cried constantly, and he didn't know how to help her. So finally, at 13, feeling utterly powerless, Andersen promised that he would hold his family together, with his bare hands if he had to.

Ever since his mother abandoned him, Andie has been his father's support and a surrogate parent to his sisters, constantly putting his own needs aside for their sake. He deferred his own college experience to save money for his sisters' education and waited hours in the unemployment line until he finally landed a job writing witty slogans for a marketing company. Work is dull and slow-going, but he (thankfully) doesn't have to talk to anyone and can daydream about things he'd much rather be doing, such as pitching his hand-drawn comic -- originally doodles he made to entertain his sisters -- to a TV producer to turn into an animated series.

But, Andersen knows that dreams are risky. Too risky when you have a family to support. Soon he'll be Matched and supporting the love of his life too. He won't be a monster or a coward like his mother. He'll give his Match the world, and then some, even if that means giving up his dreams.
