Druss spent all of her life on Irune until leaving for the Citadel a month after joining CDN. Most available information on Druss’ early history was lost during the war; it is known that the volus was put up for adoption around the age of two and taken into the care of a relatively unimportant clan. Entering the Vol Defense Force (VDF) at seventeen as a combat engineer, she eventually took specialist bomb defusal training at some point before the Reaper War. She is often tight-lipped on details of her past, often quick to try changing the topic if questions regarding her history are brought up. However, she has shared her experiences with post-war Irune’s rebuilding efforts, and frequently.
On the Citadel, she worked for private charity Leaving the Ducts, as an auxiliary to Hie Neum's Blue Band unit. After a year, she decided it was time to move on from what had always been intended as a temporary role, and left for further afield, spending time on Illium, among other worlds.
Druss very clearly has what humans would call a Napoleon complex, being strongly insulted when her height is brought up. Perhaps unsurprisingly given the culture, she also has a strong dislike of quarians, plenty of second-hand stories of the species that reached Irune having soured her views despite the fact that she's only met one in person, a few months after joining CDN. Druss may also be delusional to an extent, one of her life goals being to ‘become the first Vol Spectre.’
Druss explains in this post.
