2021-: Settling In
DeMarcus was born to Felix Westwood and Viv in around 2005 living in Manchester. In March 2020, Felix left to reunite with his first love, Martine Deveraux. In September 2021, tracked Felix to Hollyoaks through an app DeMarcus had installed on his phone, confronting him at Walter Deveraux's birthday party. Initially sour, DeMarcus was left feeling guilty after Felix nearly drowned when DeMarcus crashed into his canoe. DeMarcus decided to move in with Felix and Martine, which DeMarcus's mother agreed to.
With the house full, DeMarcus was told that he would need to share a bedroom with his half-brother Toby Faroe. Toby was initially greatly unhappy with the living situation, but eventually came to get along with DeMarcus. Beginning at Hollyoaks High School, DeMarcus landed himself in trouble on his first day and received a detention. However, after being left injured during an altercation with teacher Sienna Blake, DeMarcus insisted on lying about the circumstances of his injury.
Felix later tried to have Warren Fox imprisoned upon learning that Warren had attacked Walter, with Warren threatening to harm DeMarcus if Felix proceeded. After nearly being murdered by Warren, Felix was forced to play dead, with DeMarcus and Toby believing that Felix had left again. DeMarcus's mother Viv arrived and attempted to take DeMarcus back to Manchester, but Martine convinced Viv to let him stay. After a misconception with Nate Denby over supposed shoplifting, DeMarcus accepted Nate's job offer at his clothing stall at Cunningham's Grande Bazaar. Shortly afterwards, Felix returned to the village and revealed that he and Martine were engaged. The wedding took place a few weeks later, with DeMarcus and Felix having a heart-to-heart after Felix began having second thoughts.
