Erik is the son of Reinhardt and Genevieve Steiner. His father is currently a regional dispatcher for the MET2000. He keeps tabs on his son, but stays out of his business. Erik emerged when he was only four. His skills at maipulating technology were apparent early on. He was pegged as a future recruit for the MET2000 for two reasons. Firstly, he would be a valuable recruit. Erik's skills are developing rapidly. Second, it waws the only way his family could keep the dragon's claws out of their son. Everyone in the AGS knows that S-K's reach is far and wide. Erik's parents live in Essen, his hometown.

Erik served on an HTR team with his best friend, Ameline Laurent. She kept him out of trouble, and kept him safe on the battlefield while he worked. Erik is calm and reserved in person, but bold and brash on the Matrix. He prefers less subtle methods to get the job done. His particular style of hacking isn't always called for, but can usually find a place on the modern battlefield. Erik spent most of his time in armor, behind the guys and girls with guns, instead of passed out in a van somewhere.

He took a break from regular mercenary work to travel. He keeps in constant contact with his father, but is currently on an inactive status with the MET 2K.

GM tips

  • Erik is intended to act as a stand-in Hacker for groups that may need Matrix Support
  • He never works for free. He will accept Nuyen, but he takes approximately 110% of what would normally be asked for his service.
  • He NEVER works in person, but will meet Runners in a social call so long as he is not hacking in front of them.
