Derek is a young man with short light-colored hair and thick eyebrows. He dresses in a traditional school uniform.
Derek is the heir to a famous marquis house. He is known to be extremely admirable and reliable; he is described as a man with a cheerful personality and overflowing talent, so much that he was "dazzling." Derek is the captain of his local cricket team, and his poetry is genius. He embroiders like a true craftsman, and he always gets high marks on his reports. Basically, Derek is the very epitome of an excellent student.
But secretly, Derek is a scandalous, disgraceful fellow. For the entire four years he has been at Weston College, he, along with his group of four friends, takes others' talents through despicable means and uses them to make themselves shine. His dazzling results turn out to be fake, in this way. He also cunningly bribes the vice principal to overlook his wrongdoings.
As stated by Queen Victoria, Derek was a fifth-year student at Weston College who had consecutively sent letters home every day. However since last summer vacation, he had refused to return home. Derek was firmly resolved with that decision, even after his mother contacted the dormitory. Derek was originally Edgar Redmond's fag, but later transferred to the Purple House.
Eventually, the prefects reveal that Derek cheated by bullying and using other students for the four years he attended the school, to fabricate his talents and skills. Once he got caught by the prefects, he showed his true intention and was even less worried about the punishment as he had already bribed the vice principal with a wine bottle that the prefects confiscated before. However, once Herman heard Derek say that he will become a prefect in the following year, he murdered him and any others that witnessed the act, with the other prefects covering for him to protect the tradition of the school.
Public School ArcEdit
Derek is one of the few students at Weston College who are refusing to come home, causing his father's depression and Queen Victoria to worry about his well-being. Thus, she sends Ciel Phantomhive to investigate the matter as she wishes for everyone close to her to be able to be carefree this Easter season as well.
During the Midnight Tea Party, Ciel confronts the principal and the P4 about Derek. After proposing to call the Scotland Yard, Johan Agares, the vice principal of Weston College, says that it will not be necessary. A smiling Derek then steps out of a door in the back of the room, announcing the place smells of tea.
Derek approaches Herman and bites his right arm. Edward kicks him away, and Ciel realizes that Derek is a Bizarre Doll. Upon Ciel's order, Sebastian captures Derek by wrapping him with the tablecloth.
- The only phrase Derek Arden is able to say is how the tea smells good. This may be his last words, just proceeding his death. It can be inferred from this that Derek is an upgraded version of the Bizarre Doll, as previous versions had speech impediments and that the deceased will repeat their last words after they have been converted.
