In general, you should answer in aggressive or assertive dialogue options. This is usually the second or third choice when presented.  When promoted, you always want to answer with [FLIRT], [ROMANCE], or [COMMITMENT] to progress your relationship with Andreja and eventually romance her.

After some time, Andreja will open up to you and present the mission of Divided Loyalties.  This is a companion-related side quest that needs to be done to progress your relationship.

Here’s what you need to do to complete the Divided Loyalties Quest:

  1. Bring Andreja to Akila City
  2. Talk with Aggies and continue the mission
  3. Travel to Hyla II and defeat Zealots
  4. Learn more about Jaeda and reach their location
  5. Board Jaeda’s ship, defeat zealots
  6. Travel to the Derelict station and talk with NPC
  7. Return to the Lodge with Andreja and discuss
  8. At the end of the dialogue, select [ROMANCE]

Once completed, you will gain high approval with Andreja, increasing your likelihood of romance.

Andreja Commitment and Marriage

Andreja Commitment and Marriage - Starfield

After some time, you can make a formal marriage proposal to Andreja. You will speak with her when promoted and agree to a “Commitment.  This will trigger the quest Commitment: Andreja, which asks you to travel to the planet Shoza II in the Shoza region. You can find this on the eastern side of the galaxy map.

Once you arrive, Andreja will have you dig up a rock pile containing a sentimental gift showing her affection towards you. For the sake of spoilers, we won’t include the details, but know it’s a different form of affection worth investing in! 

After the conclusion, not much happens outside the details of the quest. So, don’t expect Andreja to have new powers or anything beyond an interesting part of her story.

Best Build for Andreja

Best Build & Skills for Andreja - Starfield

As a combatant, Andreja favors close range stealth combat.  She’s effective with a laser rifle and has a unique passive that makes her invisible while crouched and not moving.  This stealth detection passive aids in her ability to help in a sniper-type stealth build.

Unlike player characters, companions will not have a skill tree. They mainly have passive benefits to your ship’s outpost and spaceship.  Andreja has stealth skills, which increases the damage of silenced weapons by 20%. Therefore, building into a stealth loadout is optimal.  Moreover, you can equip companions like Andreja with any weapons, armor, ammunition, and throwables that you have. 

Here’s a sample build for Andreja in Starfield:

  • Weapon: Urban Eagle Pistol with Suppressor
  • Weapon Traits: Crippling, Hitman, Shattering
  • Armor: Starborn Spacesuit
  • Armor Traits: Skip Capacity Boostpack, Heavy Shielding, Gravitic Composites
  • Aid: Reconstim -30 movement noise for 2m.

The most important aspect of the Andreja build is equipping a silenced and suppressed weapon to take advantage of her tier 4 stealth passive. Continue to upgrade the weapon with mods, and stealth, crotch, and remain hidden for stealth kills.
