Steele (スティール, Sutīru) is an antagonist from Suikoden Tactics. Steele is an infamous pirate striking fear in the hearts of sailors throughout the Island Nations.


Steele was an infamous, heinous pirate who ravaged the seas of the Island Nations. From his coarse language, combined with ostentatious sense of fashion, he cultivated an image of himself as a villain. He was the bearer of the Rune of Punishment and over the years had killed many pirates and other civilians who had crossed his path.

He would eventually be attacked by Edgar and Brandeau and would be defeated in battle. He would use his Evil Eye to transform Walter into a fishman, watching in delight as the creature attacked Kyril. When he was finally defeated, he used his rune to kill Edgar but would die himself in accordance with the rune's curse, the Rune of Punishment passing down to Brandeau.
