Steak is an endangered animal and Niche's pet in the Tegami Bachi series. Steak often proves useful by scaling Gaichuu and Pointing at its weak spot with his tail. Romaji (Suteki).
AppearanceSteak has the appearance of a large white rat with a huge mouth that composes much of its body, 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. The only noises he makes are high pitch like a rat 'nini, nani, or nuni'.
Steak was first seen in a small cage with bruses while being held as a show piece in the Rabusamu Wandaun sideshow. (Love Someone Down/らぶさむわんだうん) After the sideshow was torn down by Niche Steak followed her. 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. In Episode 19, A Sick Letter Bee, Steak abandoned Niche for a short period of time perching on Sylvette Suede's lap after running away from Niche when she wanted to cook Steak.
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.
- Nani, the sound Steak makes, can be translated from the Japanese word 'what'.
- In the manga, Steak has sometimes been mentioned as "live bait".
