Titus Andromedon, born Ronald Wilkerson, was born and raised in Mississippi. He was on the successful football team and a lot of girls liked him, but this made his high school experience uncomfortable for him because he knew he was gay. However, being elected the prom King alleviated the experience marginally. Sometime after he graduated, he moved to New York City with hopes of being an actor on Broadway. He auditioned for The Lion King several times but never made the cut. He later tried to make his own version of the musical, but ended the production under the threat of copyright infringement from Disney's lawyers.
In the first episode, Titus is living in a basement apartment owned by his landlord, Lillian Kaushtupper. Lillian puts an advertisement for a roommate for Titus as he has a minimum wage job and doesn't have the money to pay the rent. Kimmy Schmidt meets Titus for the first time when she answers the ad. Titus tells her he will accept her as his roommate if she gets a job. She does, and they go out to celebrate. However, Kimmy's backpack gets stolen (with all her money in it) and Titus tells Kimmy she should just go back to Indiana. He then tells her his story about how his dreams were crushed by New York, including 20 failed auditions for a role in the Lion King. She agrees at first, but at the last second changes her mind and decides to stay in the city as Titus' roommate.

Titus deals with the wonders of copy right law and gets assaulted by a psychotic 8 yearold for money. He tried to make his own Version of the Lion King with no budget after his tenth failed audition.
