An artificial lifeform in the shape of a human or anthropomorphic character. Most androids are self aware and often times sapient, but at the very least they display self-sufficiency. They are not piloted or controlled by an outside source, but instead from an internal computer or some other synthetic logic device.
Robots in the shape of animals (or ferals if you will) are not considered androids no matter their intelligence.
