Steve Tsuchiya

We meet Steve Tsuchiya when Garik Shayk is restricted to his apartment on the upper floors of Corona Tower for two weeks. Steve is of average height, with dark, very straight hair, and neutrally pleasant looks.

Steve shows up at Garik's door three times a day, never creased and never stained, in a Corona Tower uniform, with a meal delivery from Stamford Suites Grill. 

Garik learns almost nothing about Steve during their two weeks of interactions, except that Steve has impeccable manners and is efficient at sidestepping questions with a smile.

Outside of his life in the Tower, Steve is a motocross rider, which is how he keeps his slim and toned shape. He has raced Supercross in Salt Lake City, the Australian MX in Canberra, and won the previous year at Fox Raceway in Pala, California. Steve is a little guy only in the Tower. In real life, he is at the top of his game.

We first meet Steve Tsuchiya in Book 9 of The Human-Hybrid Project, The Electrified Sword.
