François Andrieux met and married Gisele Bacourt, a woman deeply entrenched in left wing politics. Together they had a son, Blaise Jeannot Andrieux, whom they raised in an environment of political extremism. When Gisele was killed in a shoot out François was left to raise the child on his own, and in this he was aided by Claude Bonnel, a joker who had come to lead the terrorist group that François had become a part of. The boy was therefore raised in an environment of few restraints and became a dangerous pawn for Bonnel thanks to his hereditary gift for mind control.
In April of 1987, a delegation of wild carders came to France on a WHO-sponsored world tour. Among them was Blaise's maternal grandfather, Dr. Tachyon. While Claude Bonnel hatched a plan to lure the Takisian into his control, François broke rank and gunned down his own mother-in-law. While this frustrated Bonnel's plans, the impact was minimal and François continued to serve the extremist cause. This all came to an end when Tachyon initiated a plan of his own to extract the boy and François was caught and imprisoned.
Andrieux is a handsome man with sleek seal-brown hair and deep blue eyes.
