Steve is a medical pediatric doctor.
After the Yeerks discovered that Animorphs were in fact humans and not Andalite bandits, the Animorphs had to evacuate their families. While the Animorphs were collecting Cassie's and Rachel's families to relocated to the Hork-Bajir valley, the Yeerks captured and infested Jake's parents.
It is unknown if the Yeerks controlling Jean and Steve were among those that surrender. It's revealed Jean and Steve survive the war in #54, as Jake lives with them temporarily.
- On the Animorphs television series, Steve is named Greg.
- Steve is also called Greg in earlier promotional items, such as the Animorphs Alliance handbook, and Jake's Animorphs ID card.
- Jake's father is mentioned many times in the series, but he is not called by name until Book 50 The Ultimate.
- In Megamorphs #3 Elfangor's Secret, Rachel says her father, Dan, is Jewish, meaning his brother Steve is Jewish as well.
