Derrick is a bellboy that works at the Salem Inn. On December 9, 2014, was bribed by Nicole Walker to give her access to Serena Mason's room. Derek later begged Serena not to rat him out, and she agreed not to. He was revealed to be gay when he flirted with Paul Narita while he was staying there, and they became friends. In November 2016, Derrick and Paul were revealed to be dating, and they hung out with Paul's ex and friend, Sonny Kiriakis. Derrick quickly realized Paul and Sonny still had feelings for one another, and on December 30, he finally made them realize that. Derrick hasn't been since then.
