Past History

Dani Andropolous is the daughter of Steve and Betsy Andropolous. When Betsy learned she was pregnant, she believed the baby was Craig's. He kept news of his temporary sterility a secret. When the truth came out, both Steve and Betsy were thrilled. Craig kidnapped Dani to keep Betsy from leaving him. He later turned himself in. Unfortunately, Steve and Betsy's love didn't last and after he was given a life sentence in jail they divorced. Betsy moved to Wisconsin with Dani.

Dani returned as a teenager to live with Ellen. Betsy thought the move would give Dani the stability she needed but it didn't work. Troubled Dani told her friends that her father was an international spy and wouldn't face the truth about him until Nikki Munson forced her to. Dani became jealous of Nikki's relationships with Ryder Hughes and Jeremy Wheeler and decided to win both boys for herself. Kim tried to get through to Dani but that didn't work either. Kim called Betsy and made her come for Dani. Since she was 18, Dani decided to leave town on her own.

Dani returned to Oakdale a second time while she was studying for her criminology degree. She was immediately attracted to Chris Hughes but he was in love with Alison Stewart and nothing Dani tried could make him love her.
