Dervis was a major who served in the Rebel Alliance's Special Forces. Trained in cold-climate combat, the officer was among the 1,000 SpecForce troopers who were assigned to protect Echo Base, the Alliance High Command headquarters on the ice planet Hoth. By 3 ABY, Dervis led an infantry detachment.
In that year, the Battle of Hoth occurred, when the Galactic Empire launched a ground invasion on Echo Base. During the battle, Dervis's troopers were stationed in Echo Base's Hangar Bay 7, from which they ran out to fight in defensive trenches against the Empire. The Battle of Hoth ultimately led to an Alliance defeat, with the Empire forcing them to retreat the planet.
