Steak is Niche's pet in the Tegami Bachi series. Romaji (Suteki).
AppearanceEditSteak has the appearance of a large rat with a huge mouth, a tiny mustache, a spade-shaped tail and flipper-like feet. Steak may be the last of the Kapel Meister, a species that once co-existed harmoniously with the Spirit Insects, and was thought to be extinct.
Steak is obedient to Niche and is seen being taken advantage of or being clumsy and nearing close to death many times. He will willingly let Niche cook him, however she never suceeds in doing so managing only to give him a perm. Though the most cowardly of Lag's party, he doesn't seem to fear Gaichuu, often scaling them to reveal weak points.
Steak is Niche's "pet" and emergency food supply. He followed her from the Rabusamu Wandaun (Love Someone Down) sideshow after she destroyed it. He is usually seen traveling on her head, very rarely moving from his perch even while she is battling Gaichuu. Niche has remarked that Steak would taste delicious when cooked (hence his name). Steak seems to have accepted his fate as a future meal and appears to have meekly submitted to Niche's attempts to cook him.
He has the ability to sniff out and point towards the weak spots of Gaichuu, allowing Lag to fire his Shindanjuu at the weak spot. His enormous mouth, nearly as wide as his body, has been used to drag objects out of harm's way.
