If Derek was animal instead of a boy, say a pig for instanced he would certainly be considered by a farmer as being the runt of the litter. Now of course, he is a healthy young boy but that's the thing for a fourteen year old he is still small, or as his sister would call him a little squirt, only out of earshot of their parents. It's funny given that their parents aren't exactly short, his mum being average height and his dad a reasonable five foot ten inches, even his sister his a good head taller than him. It certainly doesn't help that he has such a small round face, that somewhat overshadowed by his round spectacles and consitantly standing to attention blonde hair. Something a kin to plugging your finger in a socket is the look. Derek isn't bothered by the height thing, he has far more important things to deal with, which also explain why he seemingly doesn't care about the state of his clothes, or washing.

Personality: How best to sum up Derek? In the words of his parents he is very much an absent minded professor. Constantly leaving a trail of items behind him as other things grab his attention. It's not that he has a short attention span more that he can very easily become fascinated by something or another, caught in the moment of experimenting. He's constantly scribbling in his little notebooks, making notes and observations of his latest potion. He's forgetful of what he deems trivial things, like the day of the week for instance, and whilst he might not always remember when someone's birthday is at the drop of a hat, he will always give them what he deems a thoughtful gift, to his friends well the few that can deal with Derek, caution is often the watch word with his 'gifts' as they have been known to inadvertently turn pet cats bright pink. His outlook on life his a cheerful one, and few things grind him down even if at times he has been tripped up on purpose he just tries not to let it bother him.
