Name and Lifestyle

Name Etimology

Tin Man is more of a title, rather than his name. Every eldest son is named Tin Man and is expected to take over the family's mining business.


Derry is what his family calls him. And ONLY his family.

Current Residence


Before Dalamud's Fall

Birth and childhood (0-10)

  • Only son of well-off mining family.
  • Completely normal upbringing
  • Loved his younger sister; she looked up to him

Teen Years

  • An accident during a storm (lone kobold attack) caused some misunderstanding. Sister's respect for him lost since she now thinks he's weak.
  • Against his family's wishes, his father gave Tin permission to ditch responsibility and go see the world. Hasn't been home since.

After Dalamud's Fall


  • Found guard work in Ul'dah after leaving home. Worked for a disreputable guy, but protected from the sketchier aspects by a coworker.

A Realm Reborn (Present, 23)

  • After his first boss was imprisoned, Tin bounces around from job to job. No work is beneath him.
