Andrew Chord was a sergeant in the United States army who led the unit nicknamed the "Half-Fulls." During the Vietnam war, Chord's unit discovered an ancient mystical Vietnamese temple. The leader of the temple, Tai, compelled Chord and others of his unit to marry the girls housed in the temple, in order that someday their children would fulfill an ancient prophecy. [1]

vs. Night Thrasher

Chord eventually returned to the United States with his new wife Miyami (Tai's only daughter) and joined his friend and army buddy Daryl Taylor in his Taylor Foundation business. However, Miyami wanted to avoid the consequences of the Pact and faked her death, leaving Chord unaware of his children, Silhouette and Midnight's Fire. At some point, Tai mystically compelled Chord to kill Daryl Taylor and his wife. Out of guilt, Chord took their son Dwayne and raised him as his mentor. Chord was instrumental in making Dwayne into Night Thrasher, providing weaponry and training while hiding the truth of his parents. Chord influenced Night Thrasher's decision to form the hero team New Warriors. [2]

Chord served as a pilot and trainer for the New Warriors, and occasionally joined them on adventures. Soon, however, Night Thrasher discovered corrupt dealings by the Taylor Foundation and confronted Chord with them. Chord retaliated by forcing the New Warriors into fighting Thrasher and Silhouette, but then reconsidered and, overcome by guilt, he shot himself and was hospitalized for several months.[3] When Miyami resurfaced to visit him, Tai killed her. During this time, the New Warriors confronted Tai and learned the truth of the mystical prophecy, that Tai would use it to gain ultimate power for herself. The Warriors defeated Tai. [4]
