Andersen was a member of the Colonial Militia of Harvest who fought at the Battle of Harvest. He was one of the four militia members who did not know how to fire a weapon before his training. It is unknown when he was born.
He was promoted to leader of squad One-Bravo and volunteered for the mission to clear the Tiara of Unggoy. He survived the battle and escaped Harvest on the same container as Johnson and Jenkins.
Both he and Wick wanted jobs in the DCS on an inner colony world, as they both were disdainful of being a farmer.
