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.
Her fate in the game is ultimately tied to the player's actions; she can either die (killed by the player or in an explosion set up by Sadik) or survive and pair up with McCoy as he gains the rank of "full Blade Runner" following the retirement of Clovis, the rogue replicants' leader, in the Moonbus. She wears a pair of black shades and smokes Lucky Strikes, which can found by the player as a mark of her presence.
