Personality & Traits

General Overview Andru is an android, designed millennia ago by a now extinct species, to fulfil whatever particular task was appointed to him with such proficiency that he has been left with an obsessive personality. He can never let an obsession simply pass until it is fulfilled to his quite exacting standards.

Though, to anyone who knows him socially he is a positive, optimistic, vivacious quirky character with an elderly outlook and attitude.

Personal History Andru is one of the last remaining androids produced by an ancient and extinct species known as the Vorban. They built Andrew's kind as vessels into which they would transfer their dying selves' consciousnesses but went extinct before they could build many or successfully perform a transference.

He spent several millennia delving into various obsessions: cataloguing the remaining life on Vorban, the geology, mapping the planet on foot, describing the collapsing ecosphere in detail - but none could he have done simultaneously (see "special interests.") In fact his most final and long lasting obsession was with maintaining the myriad carvings he had done into bedrock in order to record all of this data.

No other androids of his kind exist. He seems to remember that he was a prototype and only a few such models were built - but all but him were destroyed in the great upheaval of his creators' dying race.

Special Interests: currently - anthropology. His limited memory (similar to a humans) means that he engages in an obsession for a few decades - currently in humans and the federation - replacing his last obsession (human physiology and mortality). He generally recalls the subject about which he obsessed in the past and an overall message but has to wipe all other information before continuing with a new one.
Starfleet History Decorations, awards, distinctions: Noted for his instrumental work in developing several cures for minor human diseases in early federation days (when he was focused on medicine) and later as a diplomatic envoy to some peripheral federation worlds. His name is spoken of widely on these worlds but he probably wouldn't remember which or why.

Reprimands: Lost rank of Cmdr. and position as CMO, and court-marshalled due to his forceful imprisonment for 2 weeks of an Admiral in order to find a cure for his repeating stress headaches. (2201AD)
