I also found one other really good piece of information I think really represents Andy’s characterization. As he lies there he realizes thing could have different and every choice he makes impacts everything that could happen. “ And he wondered suddenly if the Guardians who has ambushed him and knifed him had ever once realized he was Andy?” (Hunter 6).
