HistoryEdit

Dermott is the son of Thaddeus Venture and Nikki Fictel. He was conceived when Rusty had sex with 15 year old Nikki, believing her to be 20.  Nikki's mother blackmailed Rusty by threatening to reveal the incident to the tabloids. Rusty paid them off and never saw Demott as a baby.

Dermott was raised to believe that his grandmother was his real mother so that Nikki, who he believes is his sister, wouldn't have the burden of caring for him while she herself is a teenager.

Dermott meets his father as a teenager when his grandmother (still pretending to be his mother) tells him that his father is at the Rusty Venture day camp. Dermott believes that his father is Brock Samson, not Rusty. Dermott befriends his half-brother, Hank Venture, while still completely unaware of their relationship.

Dermott creates a band, Shallow Gravy, along with Hank and H.E.L.P.eR.. Dermott hangs out with Hank and becomes an employee of Hank Co.. While "working", Dermott asks Hank to find out where his mother is when she's late to pick him up, leading to a series of visions that identify Rusty as Dermott's biological father. Dermott and Hank book their band a gig at Hank and Dean's home school prom, where they play their song "Jacket".

Throughout their encounters in the Compound, Rusty begins to treat Dermott the same way he does Hank and Dean, aware of the fact that he is Dermott's biological father.

Dermott realizes that Rusty is his father after Dr. Orpheus answers a mental plea for help and informs him he expected the call to be from Hank or Dean, since the mental signature was that of one of the Venture brothers.

The next time Dermott returns to the Venture Compound, he calls Rusty "dad" in front of Hank and Dean, surprising the twins.

PersonalityEdit

Dermott Fictel is a stereotypical punk. He's confrontational, resentful of authority and "macho". He often brags about and/or exaggerates his accomplishments, such as his hands being registered as lethal weapons or teaching a ninjitsu class (he actually wears the padded clothing for a rape prevention class). He projects the image of being of a 'ladies man', even though his only known interaction with a girl was with Triana, where he just made lewd comments and insulted her.

His penchant for hiding things in his rectum and his clingy inclination towards Hank (as well as his general lack of understanding of women) has led many fans to speculate that he may be a closeted homosexual.

Dermott has a fake girlfriend who he describes as a model who lives 'upstate'.

Relationships With Other CharactersEdit

Hank VentureEdit

Hank and Dermott became best friends on their first meeting. They share many interests, including rock music and formed a band, "Shallow Gravy" with Dermott on vocals, Hank on guitar/bass, and H.E.L.P.eR being used for percussion. Dermott occasionally becomes frustrated by Hank's naivete. He tends to stick very close to Hank's side and even sneaks into his bedroom un-announced. Neither of them were aware that they're half-brothers (Hank was once, but had his memory erased). However, Hank and Dean were shocked when Dermott called Dr.Venture "dad" in front of them so it is unknown what their relationship will be like in future episodes.

Dean VentureEdit

Dean and Dermott share a contentious relationship from early on, which culminates in Dean attacking Dermott after he insults Triana. Since then they've settled into a quiet dislike for one another. Dermott even attempted to help Dean win back Triana's favor after an embarrasing fight at the Venture homeschool P.R.O.M.  Like Hank, neither were aware they are really half brothers. However, when Dermott called Dr.Venture "dad" in front of Hank and Dean the two now know of their relation and it is unknown what their relationship will be like in future episodes.

Dr. VentureEdit

Dermott does not know until Season 5 Episode 6, "Momma's Boys", that Dr. Venture is his real father. Thaddeus expresses mild disdain for Dermott, viewing him as a hooligan but not entirely disapproving of his relationship with Hank. Dermott tends to react with indifference when interacting with Rusty. Dr. Venture is not intially aware of his relation to Dermott, originally thinking he is Brock's son. Rusty eventually guesses his true parentage during an interview in the Jacket special by recognizing his last name and estimating Dermott's age whereupon he ends the interview. In the Halloween special, he is seen trying to discipline him at the beginning of the episode stating "I have my reasons" when Dr. Orpheus asks him why .

In "Momma's Boys", Dermott learns who his father is and Thaddeus confirms it by telling Sergeant Hatred "Hank's friend Dermott-- that's my illegitmate son". At the end of the episode Dermott shocks Thaddeus, Hank and Dean by calling Dr. Venture "dad".

Brock SamsonEdit

Dermott, for a while, believes he is Brock's son, unaware that he's actually the son of Thaddeus Venture. Brock is one of the few who knows the truth about Dermott's parentage that hasn't had his memory erased.
