Nothing is known about Derek's life prior to or as the outbreak began.
At some point in the apocalypse, Derek somehow came into contact with a group named "the Saviors" which he subsequently joined.
Derek aided his group in terrorizing other survivors and communities around the area into subjugating to Negan's will, where their victims would be forced to give half their supplies in exchange for not being murdered.
While searching for the missing Alexandrians, Derek and his fellow Saviors get a call on the radio that Gabriel and Carson have gone missing from the Sanctuary along with Jeremy's green Jaguar. They quickly get in their truck and drive away in search of the two missing prisoners. Later that day, the group finds the escapees in a garage and takes them into custody as Derek berates a fellow Savior for shooting Carson. When they arrive at the bullet factory outpost, Derek and Mel drop off Gabriel at the outpost as Eugene's newest worker.
