|~ Andrew telling his story to Jake.|
Andrew is the tritagonist/secondary antagonist of the Five Nights at Freddy's: Fazbear Frights anthology novel series.
He serves as the unseen overarching antagonist of Step Closer, the main antagonist of Fetch, The Man in Room 1280, Epilogue 1 and Epilogue 2, the deuteragonist of Epilogue 4 and 5, the tritagonist of Epilogue 6, and a posthumous character for the remaining epilogues. He's also speculated to be either the main or overarching antagonist of The New Kid.
He is the spirit of a dead child that tortured a man by keeping him alive, and later infected numerous toys, until his soul was put into the Stitchwraith.
At one point in his life he became another victim of the serial killer William Afton. Hungry for revenge, he latched himself onto Afton's soul and prevented him from dying even if horribly disfigured as a result of burning in a fire, and inducing horrific nightmares into his mind. Afton, with Andrew's soul still inside him, was then found and brought to Heracles Hospital, when he remained for several years.
The Man in Room 1280
Andrew is first seen by Mia, appearing as a child with black, curly hair wearing an alligator mask. When the nurses attempt to kill Afton, Andrew shows up as a shadow kid, always stopping them. When nurse Hackerman tries to kill Afton with morphine, Andrew torments her with memories of her past, making her revive the death of her son, and then he shatters the fials full of morphine on the floor. When nurse Thomas tries to suffocate William with a pillow, Andrew fills the pillow with blood, and then he tore the pillow from her grasp, and the pillow ends up rupturing and releasing its contents all over the room. When nurse Colton tries to inject air Afton's fore-arm to cause him an air embolism, Andrew grabs the syringe from her hands and stabs her on the neck with it, almost killing her.
After Afton is taken to the Fazbear Entertainment Distribution Center by Father Arthur Blyte, Andrew leaves William and infects all the objects inside the building. As a result, Afton bursts and apparently dies.
- Main article: Fetch (Fazbear Frights)
Andrew, as Fetch, is the main antagonist. Through the story, he obeys to what he perceives as Greg's commands in a twisted way, and he ends up murdering a dog, cutting off a man's finger, and then killing a girl.
Andrew, now part of the Stitchwraith, says that Fetch broke down in the rain, and since his battery pack is part of the Stitchwraith's body, he himself was also brought there, while discussing with a fellow soul, Jake. Andrew himself can't see anything as the battery pack is not where the eyes should be, and doesn't have eyes to begin with. Andrew then decides to tell Jake about his past. Jake decides to collect all the items infected by Andrew, while Andrew himself doesn't help him and lets him do it for himself.
Noticing Jake has brought flowers with him to the place where he keeps all the objects haunted by agony, Andrew starts asking what they should do with them, but Jake doesn't answer. As Jake starts separating himself from the Stitchwraith's body and feels ready to move on into the afterlife, Andrew starts calling him out. Jake, understanding he can't leave Andrew alone, decides to stop thinking about the memory and he remains inside the Stitchwraith with him.
Andrew and Jake are arguing over killing or sparing Detective Larson. Jake throws the Stitchwraith's body into a trash compactor to end this. While Jake's spirit gets out of the body, Andrew is grabbed by someone, revealed to be William Afton, his killer. Jake throws himself at Afton and releases Andrew from the killer's grab, with the boy vanishing, setting him free.
Andrew seems to be overall insensitive, not feeling any kind of remorse for all the sufference he caused. In The Man in Room 1280, he shows a sadistic side, keeping William alive for years in order to get back at him, and hurting anyone opposing him, including innocent people such as the nurses. Despite that, he feels some sort of affection toward Jake, and he's seemingly scared of being abandoned by him. It's implied his evil nature is actually caused by his traumatic past and, more specifically, his brutal death. By the time the sixth epilogue happens, he appears to be improved a little bit, caring about finding the objects he infected to avoid that they could kill people and is shown to be completely terrified of Afton.
Even though he's seems to be a tragic at first, it doesn't really justify his torture of Afton and all the harm, direct and indirect, he caused in order to get revenge on him.
- It's strongly implied Andrew is the body Devon finds inside the yellow bear suit in The New Kid, with both having curly, black hair.
- That also lead many people to speculate Kelsey himself was just a projection created by Andrew's mind, explaining his connection to the suit, and how he was mysteriously able to show up alive and well at the end of the story despite apparently dying earlier in the story.
- Andrew is heavily implied to be a parallel to the child possessing Golden Freddy in the games, possibly named Cassidy.
- While Cassidy(?) is Golden Freddy in the games, Andrew is heavily implied to be Golden Freddy in the Fazbear Frights.
- Cassidy and Andrew were both murdered by their respective versions of William Afton.
- Andrew tortured Afton in his nightmares after a fire, while Ultimate Custom Night is heavily implied to be Cassidy torturing William after Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator, in a Hell-like state, or, like Andrew, in Afton's nightmares.
- Both Andrew and Cassidy were implied to be set free (Andrew in Epilogue 6 and Cassidy in Happiest Day).
- Both of their efforts to get revenge on Afton are in vain (Andrew's Afton returns as the Miscreation while Cassidy's Afton is heavily implied to be Glitchtrap)
- Andrew has been described as evil by the Nurses.
- A character named Andrew was originally supposed to be the main protagonist of the story Friendly Face from the tenth book, but he was replaced with Edward. It's unknown whether this Andrew was originally meant to be the same as the one from the epilogues or a different character entirely.
