Steiner appears in Final Fantasy Artniks.
As leader of Alexandria's Knights of Pluto, this man of honor lives to protect.
Steiner is an exclusive character available from the Premium Character Shop as a random downloadable content. He uses the Thunder Slash ability.
Captain of the Knights of Pluto, an order that serves Alexandria's Queen Brahne, Steiner has sworn to serve House Alexandros. Stubborn to a fault and set in his ways, Steiner's every act is in service to the royal family.
Though he appears first as a boss aboard the M.S. Prima Vista, Steiner is playable in Final Fantasy Record Keeper, and is automatically recruited as the First Time Reward for completing Alexandria Castle, Part 3 in the Realm of FF IX on the Classic difficulty track. He could also be recruited more easily via the Challenge Events To the Holy Land, A Place to Call Home, and Someone to Protect
Steiner is a Knight Captain, whose combat role is Physical Defense.
He may be big, clumsy, oafish, and a bit loud where he comes from, but in Record Keeper, Steiner is a top-notch tank. He has some of the best defensive stats in the cast and is no slouch with a sword, even going so far as to be a decent Spellblade. However, he can be slow and is more vulnerable to enemy magic than other units. The player would do well to ensure that any armor given to Steiner can offset the latter weakness,
