As Virgil, he shows loyalty and dilligence in his duties as secretary to Schneider. He appears quiet, cool and collected. However his true personality is that of an angry, embittered, tortured man consumed with vengeance. He believes strongly that what he is doing is right and even tries to appeal to Barnaby, whose parents had also been murdered, to understand why his search for vengeance is justified because of the crimes Schneider had committed in the past.
He is quite ruthless in the pursuit of his goals and won't allow anyone, not even the heroes of Stern Bild to get in the way of his revenge.
Born Andrew Scott, he lived with his single father who developed a small technological company called Scott System. Although a busy man, his father always had time for him and loved him dearly. Impressed with his father's technical innovations, Mark Schneider made a deal to go into business with Andrew's father.
Not long after, Andrew's father was bought out and left with nothing, which ultimately lead to his death. Although it was a suicide, Andrew blamed Mark Schneider for his father's death. Taking on the identity of Vergil Dingfelder, he managed to get close to Schneider in order to act out his plans to take revenge for his father's death.
Prior to the events of Tiger and Bunny: The Rising, Scott enlisted the help of three other NEXT, Richard Max, Johnny Wong and Kasha Graham, a boxer, monk and dancer respectively, who also had their lives ruined by Mark Schneider.
Powers and Abilities
Andrew Scott is a powerful NEXT with the ability to manipulate technology. He is able to use his powers to gather and control machinery. He is shown to have a great deal of control over this ability using countless machine parts to construct an enormous, powerful crab-like mecha armor around himself armed with guns, claws, drills, saws, flamethrowers and more. His power appears to be limited by the fact that he must be physically connected to the machinery he manipulates, which would explain why he needs to gather it around his body before he can use it.
