At some point during the late 2000s, early 2010s, Andrew ended up experimented on by the Patriots, resulting in him becoming a cyborg. His left arm, in particular, was replaced with a cybernetic one, containing data from the Patriots.
After the Patriots' fall, he ended up joining World Marshal Inc., eventually rising up the ranks.

In 2018, Andrew and several other cyborgs in World Marshal Inc., as part of Operation Tecumseh, were dispatched to the Shabhazabad Air Base in Pakistan, and awaited the arrival of President Hamilton as well as wiped out the military personnel on the base. In order to disguise World Marshal's direct involvement in the affair, they also adopted the same XIFF signal as Desperado, and utilized the same colors as Desperado to make it seem as though Jihadi rebels attacked the base, alongside Desperado as their hired guns, as well as to make it appear as if the World Marshal cyborgs had been hacked into by Desperado. Andrew himself, alongside five other cyborgs, guarded the front gate. After Raiden, having discovered Operation Tecumseh from Sundowner during his raid on the HQ building earlier, arrived at Pakistan with the help of Solis, he ambushed Andrew and his unit, also taking Andrew's arm in the process. Immediately prior to Raiden's ambush of his unit, he also cleared an armored transport to leave the base. Afterwards, Raiden and Maverick deduced that World Marshal planned on framing Desperado with the attack.
Behind the scenes
Andrew is a character in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, as well as one of thirty cyborgs to contain retrievable left arms in the game. He acted as the first cyborg commander in Chapter R-07, guarding the entrance to the Shabhazabad Air Base.
