Andy Bellefleur was born into the once wealthy Bellefleur family, he along with his sister Portia lived with their parents in Bon Temps. Growing up Andy was close to his cousin Terry, however there was a jealousy between the two boys as Andy felt Terry was loved more by the family and Terry wanted to have the same privileges as Andy. Later in life Andy's father died, and his mother left the family for a race-car driver, and Andy moved with his Grandmother. As an adult Andy became a detective in Bon Temps and worked out of the Bon Temps Police Station. He was not shown much respect by the locals because they saw him as just "Andy" instead of an official law enforcer.
