Andrean, a Holderkin, was the Second son of Sensholding. He was one of Talia's older brothers and her protector, standing between her and the rest of their family. He insisted that Talia be allowed to continue reading, though the family matriarch, Keldar, believed it was complete foolishness. He secured her permission or lessened punishments, whatever she needed at the time. He is described as handsome and gentle with a good sense of humor.

Talia remarks to Kris at one point, that Kris is the brother Andrean might have been if he hadn't died so young.
