"Every story is true if you tell it right."
—Andal Brask[1]

Biography[edit]

"I was dead, then I floated here. All I've ever done in my entire life is barf into the Pacific Ocean."
—Andal Brask to Tallulah Fairwind, on his revival as a Guardian

Andal Brask was revived by one of the Ghosts following Micah-10, and immediately afterwards journeyed to the Last City across the Pacific Ocean.[3] According to tales told by Andal, he was met at the City gates by the Hunter Vanguard Tallulah Fairwind, who told him that Micah had sent a message that Andal would be trouble, although he protested that his entire life up until then had just been drowning repeatedly in the ocean. She slapped him on the back so hard Andal died and had to be revived by his Ghost, but Tallulah acted like nothing had happened and pointed him towards a jumpship stolen by the House of Devils and decided to aid him in retrieving and taking it to the Ishtar Academy so the AI there could upgrade it. Andal, confused by everything that was happening, told her that he had no clue what she was talking about, but Tallulah told him to cheer up and that it was not like they were about to attack a Vex gate, at least not yet.[4]

During the early City Age, Andal was among those who assisted in the Faction Accords.[5] He eventually became the Hunter Vanguard and gained a seat on the Consensus during the conflict between the Speaker and Vanguard Commander Osiris. At a meeting of the Consensus, Andal was present when the Speaker announced that he was appointing Ikora Rey as the new Warlock Vanguard, was banishing Osiris from the Last City, and named Zavala as the new Vanguard Commander.[6]

Andal and the Hunter scout Cayde-6 became close friends, and Brask often spun wild stories about his Exo counterpart - going as far as to claim Cayde was none other than the great Rasputin.[7] He eventually made the Vanguard Dare with Cayde, challenging him to take up Andal's position on the Vanguard should he ever perish.[2] While on a mission, Andal was murdered by the Fallen mercenary Taniks, the Scarred.[8] With Andal dead, Cayde-6 reluctantly assumed the Vanguard post in memory of his fallen friend,[2] taking up Andal's cloak in his memory.[9][note 1]
