I'm sure Mr. Lodge explained if there's any trouble, I'm a phone call away, all right?
~ Andre to Archie Andrews.
Andre is a anti-villain in Riverdale's second season and capo of Hiram Lodge. He was also the personal assistant of Lodge family after Smithers, the old one, had gone.
He was portrayed by Stephan Miers.
Andre claimed that he is skilled in martial arts, and will protect Veronica at all costs. He initially attended Hiram's poker game at Pop's. However, he informed Archie that the toilet was clogged.
While Andre told him to call if they encountered any trouble, Veronica was watching from the lake house balcony. Archie, Adams, and Andre attended Hiram's dinner as planned. They negotiated with Lenny and Carl, who Hiram could not agree to such high numbers as he would be operating at a lost. So he respectfully declined their offer.
Next days Andre saved Veronica and her friends from a thief Cassidy Bullock by shooting him from head with a gun.
In Riverdale Riot, when he stops the car, Veronica gets out to check on Mrs. Klump after she confesses to shooting Fangs Fogarty, a Southside Serpent, earlier that evening. Small Fry Boucher, arrives at the Pembrooke. He asks for Hiram, but Andre explains that he is unavailable at the moment. Andre grows concerned when Small Fry asks by Hermione and Veronica. Small Fry then kills Andre and heads upstairs to do the same to Veronica and Hermione.
Later, Andre's body is found by Hiram, who proceeds to send both Small Fry and Andre's bodies to the coroner's office, where they are tagged by Sheriff Minetta as riot victims.
Andre was initially presented as Smithers' replacement. Though, in light of recent events, he has proven to be much more. More than just a doorman and chauffeur, Andre was the Lodges' capo, tasked with doing their dirty work and protecting Veronica at all cost.
