In 2002, Andrew was born to Mark and Emma Russell. Five years later, he gained a sister named Madison. The Russels lived a mostly happy and carefree life in Boston , but eventually moved to San Francisco due to the demands of Mark and Emma's jobs at Monarch. In 2014, San Francisco became the battleground between Godzilla and a breeding pair of MUTOs, two prehistoric superspecies that were rivaled with each other. Andrew was crushed by debris in the ensuing battle, though the rest of his family managed to survive. Andrew's death created a great strain in Mark and Emma's relationship, with the two divorcing each other and Emma taking custody of Madison. Andrew's death also caused Mark to develop an intense hatred towards Godzilla and all the other Titans. In Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Andrew can be seen briefly in old pictures and video recordings. Madison also mentions him while arguing with her mother, asking if Andrew would have approved of their mother's actions.
