Tyr Anasazi is a fictional male Neitzschean mercenary who works for Commonwealth in the Andromeda franchise. He has been portrayed on screen by Keith Hamilton Cobb. Tyr to his friends or Tyr Anasazi out of Victoria by Barbarossa to give his full name is the last remaining member of the Kodiak Pride of Nietzscheanalien race of humans. According to Rev Bem in the second episode, Tyr Anasazi was a member of the Kodiak Pride and he`s now the only one left. Rev says Tyr is trying for a new Pride and this is his way in.
Tyr starts off as a mercenary for hire who had been hired along with the crew of the Eureka Maru to take control of the Andromeda Ascendant. Tyr tays pretty much loyal to the crew of the Andromeda but in latter series, his loyalty begins to wane. In `Exit Strategies`, Tyr does some dealing behind his crewmates backs which cause them some grief down on the snowy planet.
For the first two series, Tyr Anasazi has bone blade in his lower rise like so many other Nietzscheans. At the beginning of the third series starting with If the Wheel is Fixed, the bone blades have mysterious disappeared and there`s no scars. In the last episode of the previous series, Tunnel at the End of the Light, a Nietzschean saboteur`s Bone Blades have been removed and you can see the scars. For Tyr Anasazi, there`s no scars, they have just gone.
Tyr will only date other Nietscheans as he believes all other races to be weak. When Tyr and Rebekah Valentine are alone on the Andromeda Ascendant, Rebekah hints at romance between the two after Rebekah brings up the relationship between Rommie and Dylan Hunt. Forced Perspective
In Double Helix, Tyr tries out for the Orca pride of Nietzscheans where a particular female sees him as worthy of his love. Tyr goes along with the romance but its all a ploy in order to hurt the Orca pride. He is only interested in his own Pride. The woman who Tyr used to make love to is now worthless and broken amongst the Nietzscheans.
Tyr Anasazi marries Freya of the Orca Pride but at the end of the episode, he betrays her and leaves her alone on the asteroid that he found her on. In Immaculate Perception, he receives a message from Freya that she is in danger and needs his help. When Tyr reunites with Freya on the asteroid, Freya reveals that they have a child who maybe the genetic descendant of Drago Museveni. Drago is the progenitor, the first of the Nietzscheans.
When the Gennites attack the asteroid after Tyr gives away the location of the base, the Gennites capture Freya. In a badly timed rescue, Freya is killed. The son is in the hands of the grandmother. Tyr ensures that his child is hidden before he returns to the Andromeda Ascendant.
At the end of the third series, Tyr Anasazi betrays his colleagues and leaves for solo adventures. Tyr returns in two episodes in the fourth series to kill off the character. The actor had wanted out, he was not happy in the direction that the character was going in so he left the series.
