Ste (short for Steven) lives with his drug-dealing brother and abusive, alcoholic father in a run-down council flat (government subsidized housing). He is physically abused by both his brother and father. He is secretly gay.
Ste is a good kid at heart. He has a secret, he is gay. Growing up in the Council Flats of Regent's Park in 1980, that is a big problem. To make things worse, his father is a drunk and abusive. As a result, Ste spends as little time at home as possible.
Like his mother (who died when he was young), Ste has a kind heart. To survive a tough home life and the harsh streets of Regent's Park, Ste hides his softer side beneath a hard exterior. He goes out of his way to protect the weak and innocent.
Ste has grown up in the household of a drunk, former boxer and his drug dealer older brother (Trevor). He is skilled in deflecting, distracting and talking his father down. He has an uncanny intuition for when a situation is going to spin out of control, allowing him to escape before the shit hits the fan. He knows how to take a beating and live.
Ste's home life sucks. His mom died when he was young and his brother (Trevor) and father (Ronnie) physically abuse him. The one bright spot in his life was his (secret) boyfriend Jamie. Jamie disappeared before the Fog and no one remembers him (except for fellow adventurer James Taylor), not even Jamie's mother (Sandra). This has left Ste emotionally scarred and unable to love or trust anyone. He is starting to warm up to his fellow adventurers, but even they don't really know him yet.
