Andros was born in Greece, in the Classical antiquity. At some point, he mastered wandless spellcasting as well as the Patronus Charm. His Patronus, it was claimed, was the size of a Giant, although the shape it took is unclear. In recognition of his skill in wizardry, he earned the epithet 'the Invincible'.
Behind the scenes
- Although Andros was featured on a famous wizard card, it is known that the size and corporeal form of a Patronus has no influence upon its power. In fact, another famous Patronus, belonging to Illiyus, took the form of a little mouse.
- The word Andras, from which Andros comes, is Greek for "man". The word is currently used as a prefix in many non-Greek words. It is also the name of a Greek island (Andros), an Atlantic island, and several fictional characters in franchises such as Power Rangers, Sandman and Marvel Comics.
