Andi Macklin is one of the Alphas. She first appears in Fool Moon, and was given a name in the short story "Day Off". Her last name is mentioned in Turn Coat.


Andi is among a group of University students who were taught a way to magically change themselves into wolves by Tera West.[1]

In Fool Moon, she is described as a shy, plump redhead, which filled out her robe a little too generously, new at shapeshifting and who arkwardly covered herself with her arms, shedding her dress and chanting the spell to change into her wolf-form, a round, hefty-looking with dark auburn fur animal.[2]

In Summer Knight, she had slimmed down due to the heavy exercise in her work with the Alphas, gaining a figure described as being out of a men's magazine.[3]
