Damian Andrews is a Caribbean kingpin, serial killer by proxy, and attempted murderer who appeared in the Season Two episode of Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, "Obey".



Background[]

Damian was a drug kingpin in Jamaica known for ruthless violence to keep up his enterprises, personally or by enforcers. He had an adopted son named Zion from his deceased mother, an Obeah priestess, raising Zion only to utilize him in his organized crime. Zion was abused repeatedly by Damian, turning him into a ruthless killer of at least seven people under Damian's orders. Zion was nicknamed "The Sticker" because of his signature to disembowel the people he murdered. One time, he relented in killing a woman named Jubilee, as she reminded him of his mother from being pregnant at the time of the attempt. As a result, Damian found him useless, shooting him in his head and burying him in a shallow grave in the Blue Mountains. Zion miraculously survived, but bullet fragments were lodged in his brain and diminished his capacity to a psychosis involving hallucinations of the people he murdered.

Obey[]

Zion trekked all the way back to Damian's hideout, killing three more people and hallucinating their spirits after they died. At his most heightened state, he arrived and confronted Damian, holding him at gunpoint with the pistol of a man Zion murdered earlier. Damian retorted with insulting Zion and his mother for Zion not obeying orders, despondent over nearly killing Zion after all the crimes they committed because stepped up to have mercy. The IRT soon arrives with Jamaican police. Garrett tells Zion he knows the truth about the attempt on his life, offering Zion help if he gives his testimony to put Damian in prison. As Zion is about to surrender, Damian grabs the gun and takes Zion hostage. Garrett turns to him and insults him in condemnation for his criminal enterprise and for brutalizing Zion as he did even after adopting him. When Garrett threatens to kill Damian without hesitation in the standoff, Damian hesitates and then tries to shoot Garrett but Simmons tackles Damian from behind. Both Damian and Zion are arrested, with Damian being extradited to the U.S. where he is incarcerated after Zion sold him out to law and justice.

Modus Operandi[]

Damian's M.O. of most of his personal and proxy crimes as a drug kingpin is unknown. When Damian enployed Zion as a hitman, he had Zion stab and disembowel people Damian ordered him to with a hunting knife. When Zion relemted to kill Jubilee, Damian shot him in his head and buried him in a shallow grave in the Blue Mauntains, only for Zion to survive with the bullet still in his brain. In a confrontation that same evening, Damian stole the gun Zion had from a previous victim and held him hostage with it, then tried to shoot Garrett to get out of a standoff with police.

Profile[]

No profile of Andrews was made by the IRT, as they were investigating Zion Andrews instead. He was described by Garrett as a sociopath with a narcissistic personality disorder.
