Andrew "Andy" Trudeau was a police inspector for the San Francisco Police Department and the partner of Darryl Morris. He was a childhood friend of the Halliwell sisters, as he grew up in close proximity to them, and had an on again-off again romantic relationship with Prue since high school.
As an adult, Andy became an inspector like his father and grandfather before him. After the sisters gained their powers, Andy grew suspicious of them since they were connected to several unsolved cases involving magic. He later quit after being investigated by Internal Affairs, which was actually set in motion by the demonic Inspector Rodriguez.
Andy later learned the truth about Prue and her sisters. Seeking to protect them from Rodriguez, he was struck by an Energy Ball thrown by Rodriquez and was tragically killed.
He was later made into a whitelighter by the Elders so he could guide the Blessed Ones. Also before leaving the afterlife, he and Prue ended their story as friends so Andy could have a chance of moving on to find new love.

Not much is know about Andy's afterlife, except for the fact that he and Prue were together, as both have confirmed that they were with each other. Prue says that before he left, she wanted them to end as friends to which he agreed; this was so he could find a love and move on from her as she did when he had originally died. Andy noted that Prue told him of most of the entries in the Book of Shadows, as he and Leo explained the soul swapping spell entry.

Notes and Trivia
- Andy was a third generation inspector at the San Francisco Police Department, following his father and grandfather.
- It is unknown why T.W. King left Charmed, although there are three main theories that speculate why. The first is that Shannen Doherty and T.W. King did not get along and that Doherty was overwhelmed with joy when he was written out. The second is that King wanted more screen time, but the producers couldn't think of more stories for him. The third is that King simply wanted to pursue different acting jobs.
- It could be theorized that Andy was made into a whitelighter as soon as he was killed and was sent to watch over Pip, Eddie and Bev at the beginning of their toddler years, though this wouldn't make sense since both Prue and Andy have said that they were together in the afterlife before Andy was made into the Blessed Ones' whitelighter.
