Deem was born in the Gredi town of Paskau to moderately wealthy turron traders. He helped with the family business until his early adolescence, when he began mining in the vast Fegedahn mountains.
He soon became aware of the Dabhiz Association, and travelled to Raukath to become a member. Shortly afterwards, he moved to the Spirilidon town.
He became fast friends with Senton Arguss and Anul Sinnadon, and the trio began mining together, which they still do to this day.
