Derivan was born in Lower Kaerna Village. His father Delver was a locally renowned instrument maker and his mother Madeliynn tended to the family home and sung occasionally at the Gilded Unicorn Inn. After growing up in the village and learning how to play the syrinx, Derivan ventured out with help from his father to Crossings where he joined the Bards' Guild under Guild Leader Silvyrfrost.

Shortly there after Derivan's parents were senselessly murdered by Dragon Priests during a raid in Kaerna. Filled with rage and grief, Derivan was struck by a strong desire to leave Crossings, find those responsible for killing his parents and see the world and did so for many of his early years. He traveled extensively around the islands within the provice of Qi and also visited all of the known Bardic guilds at the time. When his search turned up naught and his grief subsided Derivan returned to the Crossings and became a citizen of Zoluren, vowing however to forever fight the Dragon Priests and avenge his parents murders. To clear his mind he joined the Lorethew Mentor Society and served as a mentor for a few years.


While drinking with friends at the Half Pint Inn, an idea was passed around to start a Troupe to rival that of the Four Winds. Derivan had always had a talent for a tune and would always sing to appease the local barkeeps and inn keepers who held his tabs. On that day Derivan became a founding member of the now famous Tavern Troupe Performing Order. He held various posistions within' the order including years as the Lead Councilor and Vice Speaker. Derivan left the Troupe shortly after the departure of the Troupe's first speaker Bubbinster Bladebender and whispers of the Dragon Priests return in the province of Ilithi.

Renouncing his citizenship and leaving The Crossings, Derivan set out on the road to Shard and once there became aquainted with the local tavern and inn keepers. He had developed a love of ale during his younger days and was well versed in the subject. Well enough in fact to impress a local dwarf brewer who promised Derivan all the ale he could drink and a fair amount of coin in return for his services as a taste tester. With financing for his continuing fight against the Dragon Priests, Derivan moved with the brewer to the province of Forfedhar.

After hearing news of the execution of former Haven Bard Guildleader Ezruh Matsham in 399AV Derivan quit his posistion in Forfedhar renounced his citizenship in order to train and study with former songsworn and new Riverhaven Guildleader Tasdraen.
