Andreas is reckless, as well as oblivious, proven when he repeatedly attempted to wreck a spaceship while still inside it, even though on one occasion he was under the influence of Aggregor's power neutralizing device. Andreas is a little more gullible than hardheaded as he tends to make attachments to pretty much anyone whom he thinks is nice or is the strongest (this was proven when he blindly followed P'andor who had over-powered Bivalvan and took charge). Andreas has shown himself to be a gentle giant, getting easily scared and thinks most people are his friends. He is also seen being friendly with Argit.
Andreas first appeared in a flashback in Escape from Aggregor. He appeared in Andreas' Fault, as he was used by Argit to control the Forever Knights. After the knights overthrew Argit, they attempted to murder Andreas, but they were stopped by Ben and the others. During the battle, a vibrational weapon the knights used for executions was damaged and became a seismic bomb capable of wiping out everything within a five-mile radius. Andreas countered the vibrations released from the device as the Forever Knights' castle collapsed around him. Ben, Gwen and Kevin believed that he had perished, but at the end of the episode, Aggregor found him alive beneath the wreckage and teleported him back onto his ship and put him in a stasis pod along with Bivalvan, P'andor and Galapagus.
Andreas' "death" from the earlier episode was proven false to the team in Ultimate Aggregor. Andreas and the others were forced to fight Ben and his team by Aggregor, and he presumably died when Aggregor absorbed the five Andromeda galaxy aliens.
As of the end of Absolute Power: Part 2, Andreas, along with the other Andromeda Galaxy aliens, are revived after Kevin was turned back to normal.
Powers and Abilities
Andreas has incredible digging capabilities thanks to his jackhammer arms, and can transform his hands into drills to help himself burrow underground and move through it. Andreas can even dig through solid rock. His drill hands can also be very useful in battle, as seen when Armodrillo fought Slamworm, and can also cause a lot of pain to a Galilean.
Andreas possesses enhanced durability, courtesy of his armor. He is durable enough to withstand attacks from many powerful opponents, as well as being thrown through walls and other solid surfaces.
Andreas can jump exceptionally high.
Andreas is immune to gas.
Andreas can create destructive earthquakes by placing his hands on the ground and pumping the jackhammer pistons on his elbows. He can also do this by slamming his hands onto the ground.
Andreas can extend his hands.
Andreas is able to create fissures in the ground, although he may have to first dig deep underground to do this.
Even though Andreas' armor is highly durable, it is not strong enough to keep Argit's spikes from getting through.
Certain weapons can cause Andreas' nervous system to go out of control and make him unable to stop vibrating his arms.
Andreas can be suffocated if a large amount of matter covers his whole body and compresses it enough.
Andreas has a weakness against electricity.
Andreas is not particularly intelligent.
