Steve R. Gustavson claimed to be a Nevada Gaming Commission agent.
Hiro and Ando sneak into Gustavson's room disguised as hotel service staff to "retrieve" a showgirl's purse. Later, Gustavson releases Hiro from the closet where the showgirl — Hope — trapped him, and identifies himself as Nevada State Gaming Commission officer.
Gustavson pulls Hiro out of the closet at gunpoint and asks who Ando is. He asks him where Hope and the suitcase are. Despite some initial hesitation, Steve takes Hiro and drives to Primm, NV. In the car, Steve tells Hiro that partners only get in the way, that taking on a partner will bring blood on Hiro's hands, and that Ando was the one that wanted to help Hope and took their car.
Steve Gustavson and Hiro arrive at the parking lot where Hope is. Steve tells Hope that he wants his share of the money. She fires, hits Steve's car, and Steve returns fire hitting Ando in the arm. When Hope's Ando-bound shot is stopped by Hiro, she recoils, giving Steve enough time for to tackle her. He and Hope are then separated and arrested by the Primm Police.
Steve Gustavson is on a bus full of prisoners. He tries to make conversation with Perrin Crocker, who yells at him when he mentions Perrin's crime of murdering his own wife. As Perrin gets angry, he protrudes spikes from his body, killing most of the occupants, including Steve.
"Partners screw you over."
