Walter Steckler works for SSP. He holds the rank of a chief deputy and is a veteran of the streets, used to dealing with the human and metahuman trash that threaten Snohomish. He’s divorced, with a son and a daughter living with his ex-wife. Like many of his colleagues, he has a Jazz habit because the use of the drug is accepted and encouraged.

He has recently gotten a rookie partner, Nathan Engelmann.


Chief Deputy Walter Steckler died 28.4.2071, in the performance of his duties on the 524 in the Snohomish district.

He and his partner were searching the known criminal witch Kiki Blocksberg, when her pimp, an unregistered and presumed SINless adept started assaulting his partner Nathan Engelmann, who suffered severe head trauma during the magical attack. Chief Deputy Steckler tried to assist him, firing six shots from his service weapon, but couldn’t stop the adept, who finally attacked the deputy and killed him with a deadly martial arts blow to the head.

The cop killer is on the run since.

The SSP corporation is mourning the loss of their colleague and he leaves an ex-wife and two kids behind. The memorial ceremony is scheduled on next Sunday at the Woods Creek Independent Order of Odd Fellows Cemetery. The family invites friends and colleagues from the SSP.

He gave fifteen years for the SSP and the citizens of Snohomish.
He was killed in the line of duty.
God hates Magic.


“We lost a good loyal comrade. One of the best cops I’ve ever met” – Ted Swenson

“Finally he’s got it. I always thought it would be the drugs.” – Mika Steckler

“Where is daddy?” – Kayle Steckler

“Finest gunfighter of the SSP. Beaten to death by an unarmed SINless. Poetic. That corrupt racist asshole.” – Chopper


Slowly, punk! Just freeze. Now! You drop your weapon and put your hands behind your head. On your knees. Well done. Down, head on the ground. Engelman, put him some nice bracelets on and let’s see who we got here.

Well, well, well, look who this is. Isn’t that my favorite felony ork or what? They let you out of your cage? Yesterday? Well, good for society that I’m around to put you back in. And because I’m happy to see you I’ll now sing you my favorite song. It’s called Miranda.

No, smartass. That’s not private property. That’s confiscated evidence. You bought that with crime money. It now belongs to society. Which is us.
