Growing up on Nepleslia, she had very very close run ins with crime almost every day. It made her resent it and she uses it as to drive her forward. She hates criminals with passion, not often seen.
It also helps her get her mind of her own insecurities, which are many. Beginning with tiny thing as her smoking habit; her rare outburst of anger and violence up to the fact that she feels that she gave up on and betrayed Nepleslia, by choosing much easier life in Yamatai. This feeling of betrayal even deepened as she changed to new Minkan body, to keep up with criminals. She stopped being Nepleslian and that eats her away slowly. Another things she hates about herself, but does nothing with is the fact that she is willing to go around the law sometimes.
As for her social life, most of her relationships ended up broken as she put her job before her lover. In company of other people she tends to stay away, but does not resist, or shove off people trying to get to know her. She is polite and has a sense of humour, tending her to use sarcasm.
Mother: Joana Carver (40 - deceased)
Father: Frank Carver (27 - deceased)
Andrea was born on Nepleslia. Her family was not the one of the richest, but they had solid life for several years, after she was born. Her father who was a policeman, was killed on the job when she was four though. It made their life much worse. Pension coming from the state was not very big and Andrea's mother Joana, had to work a lot to keep her daughter safe.
Andrea was then raised with stories about her father, either told by her mother or friends of the family. Some of them still serving on the force. Her father was not some action hero, but he still had sort of solid grasp on what justice is and how it should be served.
Andrea saw the society she was growing up as sick and bad. Gangs ran in the cities, crime organizations did what they wanted and the little cop, which were not in pockets of crime mobs could do little against it. Andrea grew sick of it.
Just a short time after Andrea celebrated her eighteenth birthday, her mother died too. Her last tie to the planet disappeared and she took all she had and left. Andrea moved to Yamatai, trying to find new life there. She was fascinated how better life seemed there, crimes were very low and police did splendid job.
Not entirely sure what she wanted with her future, Andrea decided to follow her father footsteps as she joined Yamataian National Police. Getting through the academy easily and eager to prove herself she started serving. For her colleagues she was sort of attraction. A gruff nepleslian young woman serving with refined Yamatian policemen and women. She managed to fit in fast though.
Her hunger for work and drive to do her job showed up soon and she became dedicated to her job. She still hated criminals, which made it even easier for her. Young woman had a cause and she followed it. Her abilities might have not been the top of the force, but she always pushed forward, which gained her soon spot as a detective.
Everything seemed fine, until Nepleslia went independent. Andrea was first happy for them, but it also bring out some memories and made her think. She was doing her job and she was good at it, so she had to ask, why did not she do it where she was born? On Nepleslia? Why did she run away and leave the people who needed help much more behind. It slowly started eating her away.
Andrea started to look for mistakes on her. She became sloppier and more aggressive while working. Slowly she started gaining bad reputation and there were gossip about her going over the line few times. Nothing was proved by internal affairs, but she slowly found herself being assigned more mundane jobs, rather the higher scale ones. It made her even more depressed thinking what a failure she was. Her feeling of being pulled away from Nepleslia even deepened, when she upgraded to NH-31F body, when most other officers do the same. It helped her work, but she stopped being Nepleslian all together and ate her soul.
She still had her job though. It was something she could draw to and focus on. Give her something to concentrate, rather then on her mistakes. On the job she was still pushing forward, outside it she quite useless. For a time she was even hitting a bottle, when off duty. When her last superior found that our, he wanted to get rid of her. Using his connections he made sure Andrea was transferred to Unit Four. Unit that was considered a band of misfits. Only then Andrea realized how deep she sunk and that it was time she had to start doing something with herself.
Andrea speaks fluently in Yamataian and Nepleslian languages. She picked up basic of Lorath, because one of the crime she often fought was slave-dealing. She know how to operate all communication devices used by Yamataian National Police.
Andrea knows how handle herself in a fight. Growing on Nepleslia taught her basics. Police training and experience finished the job. She is skilled hand-to-hand combatant, specialising on disabling moves causing pain rather then severe damage. She knows how to use Jitte effectively. Andrea is skilled with firearms of all sorts and was ever given training with Power Armour, which is rarely used by police.
When Andrea is on the job, she drives. She learned how to drive both ground-based and hovercar, even airbikes fast. In her time on force she has been in few high-speed chases and knows how to handle a throttle.
Policewoman has to learn how to move quietly, if she want to sneak up on a criminal and arrest him. Andrea learned how to move quietly and how to open security locks. Taking criminal by surprise is always good thing.
As a police officer, Andrea had to study law thoroughly. She might not have as much knowledge as a lawyer or a judge, she knows how to enforce the law though and knows what she can do and cannot do. She made sure to study problems often arriving with non-lawful arrests. She also learned how to move on scene of crime, without destroying the evidence.
Know your enemy. As a cop, Andrea often comes in contact with criminals and witnesses. She has to talk with both and know what to say and what not. She learned to read a certain nuances in human face. Thanks to it she knows, when to apply pressure or when to use honey during interrogations.
In past, when she still had Nepleslian body, Andrea had to workout often to keep up with Yamataians and Nekoes. She was good athlete and fast runner. Training became a habit, she still has even as a Minkan. She also made sure to master flying ability of her new body.
