|We have 2 images of Dark Shadows Andre DuPres|
André and his sister were originally from France, but relocated to Martinique at the time of the French Revolution. He was a widower, his wife Marie DuPres had died in Martinique when Josette was still a child. He raised his daughter with the help of his sister. When Josette was courted by Barnabas Collins, André gave his consent to the marriage, despite the necessity of Josette's relocating to America. André accompanied his daughter to her new home in Collinwood.
Shortly after their arrival, he was shocked to discover that his daughter had become romantically involved with Jeremiah Collins, the uncle of her fiancé. He confronted Jeremiah about the affair, and Jeremiah gave his word that he would never see Josette alone again. The promise was broken however, when on the eve of her wedding Josette eloped with Jeremiah.
In Angelique's Descent, it is eventually revealed that prior to his marriage, Andre had an affair with a girl in Martinique, and unbeknownst to him, fathered a child - Angelique. Angelique discovered this, but never revealed it to anyone.
