Derek was born on Earth and has triplet siblings Ayla, Kaylee & Joshua. Both parents died in a tragic accident when he was 10. He is a senior in high school and he has the top grades in his class, though his social skills and tendency to daydream have not made him very popular. He is a voracious reader and feels it is his responsibility to raise his siblings in his parent's absence.
With the arrow anchoring him to the hull, Derek was pulled out of the lifeboat, his feet dangling in the air. He could feel the skin and muscles of his shoulder tear as all his weight pulled on the shaft of the arrow. The lifeboat beneath his feet slowly floated away, the rope tethering them together ripping in two. After a moment, the arrow snapped and Derek fell into the water. The last thing he saw before his head sunk beneath the surface was Tabitha slumped over, her face resting on the edge of the lifeboat, blood pouring from her mouth, eyes open and lifeless.
