Andrew was born in whales, but was raised in Italy. His mother moved him to Italy almost as soon as he was born. His family was incredably poor. His mother left during the days to provide food for Andrew and his younger brother Hayden. Dinner was the Stewart families only meal. Eventually Andrews Dad Mars, came for him so that he could attend Camp Jupiter and learn and train like the other demi-gods.
Andrew will not go anywhere without a sword. A sword is Andrews weapon of choice if it came down to one weapon. Short swords are most preffered since they are quick, easy to transport, and dont get in the way when running. Andrew is also extremley gifted in Archery, so he may also be seen with a bow and arrow.
