Personal History Early years:-

Andy was a sickly baby. He was born 12 weeks premature. The doctors gave him only a 10% chance of survival. But the little boy must of heard them. Because slowly he started to get stronger. After two months he was well enough to go home. But his remarkable recovery set red alert klaxons off in Starfleet Medical. Who immediately red flagged him for possible illegal genetic manipulation and argumentation . Andy’s parents realized this could affect their son in later life. Especially if he wanted a career in Starfleet. So they took Starfleet Medical to court and won. All red flags and warning notices were rescinded.

He grew up in the East Coast of England seaside town of Great Yarmouth.Although small as a young boy. The bullies in the area soon learnt to never judge a book by its cover. He was known for disabling a potential bully by dropping down and grabbing their groin. Not letting go even when only dogs could hear their shouts for mercy. He was given the nickname of The Grabber.

School & Higher Education Years:-

School:-

He had a short time in nursery school. After an incident when a larger boy got turned from a tenor into a soprano.After he thought it was ok to steal Andy’s favorite toy. Young Griffin was home schooled.

Due to their sons' rather unique way of fighting. Andy became quite a problem for them. His notoriety made their choice of local schools rather limited. As most of the boys either cheered him on or ran away from him, holding their groins. A fact the boy's parents were keen to point out.But his maternal Grandmother came up with the solution. She knew a very good school in Glasgow that specialized in wee naughty boys.Like her wee boy Andy.

A sudden growth spurt and a very strict regime. Soon turned Andy from a thug into a decent hard working young man.He did very well not only academically but also personally. He got into sports in a big way. Especially boxing. Becoming the school champion three years in a row. He also started his love of crime and detective stories. When he joined a school club.He excelled at all his subjects. His favorites were math , science and history. Sports featured heavily in his schooldays. Apart from Boxing he also excelled at swimming.

College and University:-

He had a few choices ahead of him. He could one day go into law enforcement. One day go to work on The East Anglian Kelp Farm project with his parents.Then again a career in Sports and later coaching would be available. Teaching perhaps? Starfleet?

Andy was in the good position of having a wide choice. Due to his very high school grades. So he chose a career in law enforcement with his parents Kelp project in reserve. Something they wished was in reverse.

His first attempt at college life did not go well. Some older students played a very embarrassing prank on some freshmen, including Andy. He retaliated by putting a series of soap bombs in their dorm. Sadly the senior colleague lecturer was visiting his son. One of the older students at the exact moment the soap bombs went off.
Andy took the fall and was due to be expelled . But after one of his teachers spoke on his behalf it was changed to one year’s suspension.

After a year he returned to college and had to begin again. But this time he kept his head down and stayed out of trouble.He moved to London where he studied his final years in Academia. Passing with full honors and his choice of any career. He was on the verge of becoming a law enforcement officer. When a chance meeting with an old friend from Great Yarmouth. Andy decided to try for Starfleet Academy.

Starfleet Academy:-

Andy did very well in the academy. During his fourth and final year. He helped in finding the Gorn Ambassadors young son. Who had escaped his minders and vanished. The youngling had tried his little claws trying to climb a tree and got stuck. His natural coloring made it easy for him to blend in. But Andy was able to follow the clues and find him.

It gained Andy a special award and the gornlings fathers eternal thanks.

Andrew graduated with full honors. His first posting was on DS9. But found it to peaceful and put in for a transfer.
