Jorien van der Heijden aka Sheever is originally from the Netherlands. She liked playing games when she was young but did not get that much into it until one of her sisters started playing WarCraft III, and discovered the world of She was a big fan of Tower Defense, and later also DotA. When World of Warcraft came out is when Sheever really got serious about gaming, she raided with hardcore raiding guild 'Ascendence' for about 4 years. When she quit World of Warcraft in 2011 she was still used to spending a lot of time gaming and so she carried on doing so, just with different games. When she received a Dota 2 beta key she started streaming on in early December of 2011, and switched to in March 2012.

When asked to help out with an amateur Dota 2 tournament is how Sheever initially entered the casting world. It was suggested to her she apply for a casting position at GosuGamers, where she was hired in April 2012, and remained with them till January 2013, when GosuGamer disbanded their caster team. Since then Sheever has been an increasingly well-known independent freelance caster/host/interviewer for Dota 2, appearing in many well-known events such as The International, Starladder, and DreamLeague.[2]
