Drue comes off as a vicious, mean-spirited person who's out to create havock among everyone in the Creek. He's even dubbed the male Abby Morgan by the group. It turns out he's a product of unhappy, divorced parents who value status and money above the well-being of their son – and themselves. Drue betrays a glipmse of this when he's trapped in a storage locker with Joey and at times with Jen.
Drue Valentine was a part of Jen's social circle in New York, when the kids were doing drugs and sleeping around, and harboured a crush on Jen, who was with Billy at the time.
