Andrzej was the lord of the town Lidich, located in Myst. He was a fair and just lord. But when a man started stealing children from his village, he tracked down the man. The man claimed the children were for Koteus, a mythic creature that lives in the woods. Andrzej lured Koteus by injuring the man. But Koteus knew he was lured and attacked Andrzej by surprise. Koteus bit Andrzej, before Andrzej managed to kill the creature. The bite slowly transformed him into Krampus, the opposite of Santa Claus, coming for the naughty children.
