She was a colleague of Blade Runner Ray McCoy, who she nicknamed "Slim." Steele was very much in favor of replicant extermination and was an excellent marksman, scoring an almost perfect score on the LAPD's gun range. She displayed a minor attraction to McCoy, as well as considerable disrespect and condescension. She wore a pair of black shades and smoked Lucky Strikes, which McCoy found as a mark of her presence.[1]

In November 2019, Steele was assigned to investigate an explosion at a Tyrell Corporation manufacturing plant. Although she felt that the protest group Citizens Against Replicant Slavery were too close to the explosion to believe they were involved, she interviewed their leader, Spencer Grigorian. Grigorian denied involvement, but did identify two suspects. She searched replicant incept files to identify any munitions experts that were unaccounted for.[1]

If Steele died, she was either killed by McCoy or an explosion set up by Sadik. If she survived, she paired up with McCoy as he gained the rank of "full Blade Runner" following the retirement of Clovis, the rogue replicants' leader, in the Moonbus.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

"Steele's a hell of a Blade Runner and one tough cookie–quick, agile, strong and smart. She's on a special undercover assignment right now, but if you're lucky you just might get a chance to see her in action. Keep your eyes open and you could learn a lot. Don't let Steele's sweet disposition fool you, though - somewhere down deep lies the heart of a killer."

Steele's fate is ultimately determined by the actions of the player.
