Deru was a Raashii King on Natetsu, but he was overthrown rebels allied with Taasuukanuuruukyakyu, a rival Raashii King (who turned on the rebels and took the throne himself). Deru's family left the kingdom and went into hiding, while Deru challenged Taasuu duel for the throne (a common Raashii practice that generally leaves the looser humiliated, but not dead.) During the duel, Taasuu informed Deru that he had set up a trap that Deru's family. Deru did not believe him at first, but was eventually convinced of the truthfulness of the statement and left to try to save his family. He was too late, and in a fit of rage, he destroyed as many of Taasuu's soldiers he could catch. While chasing down the last few, Deru collapsed from exhaustion.

Some Ferox Fishermen found him, and bandaged his wounds. Deru wanted to repay them, but not knowing the language they spoke, he was unable to tell them. He decided to stay with them and help them in ways that he could. When the fishermen returned to Tokura, Deru gave them his golden Kyakyu necklace for payment for providing him with food, a ride, and for teaching him a little of their language. Then Deru left the fishermen to wander the new land.


Deru is a proud and sometimes stubborn individual. He will not show the pain and sorrow he feels from his loss, but he will show anger. He has a history of going into a destructive rage when he is really angry. He will not let a kind act towards him go unpaid, even if the payment is refused.
