Andre was born of a minor noble family. His uncle was a Crusader and his father a local adjudicator. He is deeply religious and believes profoundly in the cause of the Crusades. He was disturbed at first at their attacks on Christian cities, but his devotion to Count Baldwin is sufficiently strong that he believes the rationales that his liege has given, both theological and political. Despite this, Andre is uncomfortable with wanton destruction of Christian churches
and Christian iconography. He also believes in the knightly ideal, and would prefer to offer succor to those in need instead of brutality. Andre staunchly believes God intended for him to be on this Crusade and will protect him.
