Steven Joseph Stone was born on March 31st to Joseph and Freya Stone in Rustboro City. He was born into wealth, so his life was predicted to be easy and a smooth road. However, his mother had suffered from health problems following his birth, and was never fully healthy. His mother showered her son in love and attention and raised him the best she can until her eventual passing 4 years after Steven's birth. From then on he was raised by his father. His father was hit hard by the passing of his wife, and started devoting more of his life to work. Steven often followed his father to the office, and spent time there. During the time he spent at his father's office, he found his love for geology. He would read books he found at his father's library, and would borrow some from the library nearby. His father would often buy him geology sets to keep him occupied, but otherwise didn't really have a strong bond with his son. Steven had made some friends with children of his father's co-workers, but he never really had any close companions. This would change at the age of 12 when Steven set out on his pokemon journey, with a beldum he got with his father, and an Aron he caught later. Steven would meet a boy his age named Wallace, and the two would quickly become close friends. The two travelled together and battled the gym leaders. Steven's journey was a little slow paced, due to being called back by his father to assist in his company. Steven gained all eight gym badges at the age of 16. At this age, Steven dated his first girlfriend, Portia. In between pauses where he was called back to assist his father, Steven would participate in intense training, strengthening his Pokémon. When he was 17, Steven challenged the elite four and champion, and won, making him Hoenn's newest champion.

During his championship ceremony, he is introduced to Soul, who had wanted to attend a championship ceremony. Soul is not impressed with Steven, due to his rich background and gentleman personality, which she assumed was a façade. Edme, the guardian of Hoenn, told Steven not to worry that much about it. Afterwards, Steven spent his first year of being champion strongly defending his title and helping the Devon Corporation. His childhood best friend Wallace would introduce him to two people, Gold and Silver. Gold and Silver were travelling through the Hoenn region and collecting gym badges, and Gold had befriended Wallace. Steven hung out with the three every now and then in the middle of his champion duties and working for his dad's company. Eventually, it would be revealed that Gold and Silver were the childhood friends of Soul after Soul decided to tag along to Hoenn. Soul and Steven had some slight conflict, but eventually the two learned to tolerate each other with the help of their chilhood friends and Edme. Steven and Portia would also experience conflict, as it became evident that she was using his appearance and wealth. After much pestering from Wallace, Steven broke up with Portia, feeling ultimately heartbroken and betrayed. As Steven entered adulthood, his relationship with his father became more strained as he wanted Steven to take on more duties for the Devon Corp., despite Steven's protesting. He would also spend more time with Wallace, Gold, and Soul. He would soon find that he had developed feelings for her. He would put those feelings to the side to start, since realistically in his mind, he would never be able to pursue a relationship with her. Soul eventually reciprocated these feelings, leading to Steven asking her out. The two agreed to keep the relationship lowkey, to prevent attention from the media and to go about their lives.

Steven would continue with his championship duties, but his relationship with his father became even more strained. His father wanted him to take over the company, which Steven expressed multiple times that he did not wish to do so. This lead to frequent conflict with his father to the point he moved out to his own house in Mossdeep away from his father. During this period Soul would visit more frequently, though only for a few days at a time. Steven kept his champion duties for some years, which came with increasing pressure from his father to retire and take over the Devon Corperation. He and Soul got increasingly closer through this time, as the two would often vent to each other. Steven was minding his business one day when an emergency news cast was aired, declaring a state of emergency in Johto. Using his status as champion and connection with Edme, he promptly flew out to Johto to meet up with Soul and assist with the aftermath. Soul was initially not pleased with Steven, retaliating at him. Steven was hurt, but understood the grief and pain Soul was going through. Soul did allow Steven however to stay in the guest room of her house. Steven stayed after the aftermath of the event to assist with recovery efforts but was called back to Hoenn a few days later. He and Soul grew extremely close following the event and Silver's passing. Steven, wanting to pursue his dreams of founding his own geology company and being closer to Soul, he retired from Champion at the age of 24, and moved to Johto. He moved in with Soul, but stayed in her guest room for a few months. He went to found his geology company, The Geology Foundation of Johto, based in Ecruteak City. He would later propose to Soul, and the two would be married. They moved into a new house shortly after their wedding. His father never really approved of his son's relationship, but Steven learned not to care. Three years after he got married, on September 19th, his first child would be born. She would be named Crystal, inspired by his love of stones and crystals, and her middle name would be Freya, after his mother. Two years later, his other two children would be born, named Ruby and Silver. He currently resides in Ecruteak City with his family, and works as the president for his geology company.

Steven was aware of his father's expectations of him ever since he was young. Steven dealt with the pressure of being the perfect golden child and his own wants and passions. He never wanted to inherit his father's company, despite the constant pressuring. Steven felt like no matter how hard he tried, he could never fit into the mold his father envisioned for him.

She felt certain that his mother would love and cherish him for who he was, unlike his father. He thinks of his mother very fondly and wishes she had gotten the chance to raise him and meet his eventual children.
Gold - Friend Steven and Gold have a much more casual friendship. Steven doesn't need to communicate often with Gold to maintain their friendship with Gold and seems the feeling is mutual on Gold's side. Steven enjoys Gold's presence and is always willing to provide support, but he is stisifed with his simple relationship with Gold.
Lisia - Non-biological Niece Steven has a special place in his heart for Lisia. Lisia being the biological niece of Wallace naturally grew up with Steven always around.

Steven is especially fond of Irie and finds her to be a wonderful mother and an inspiration. He is in awe of Irie's strength in resilince throughout the hardships she's endured. He views her as the maternal figure he had lacked growing up and often comes to her for life advice. He sees the way Irie acts with his own kiddos and couldn't ask for a better grandmother to his children. He wishes Irie could've gotten to know his own mother.
Mabel - Sister figure Mabel is Wallace's older sister. Steven often spent a lot of time with Wallace's family whenever his father would be away. Steven was a timid and shy child, and Mabel took note of this. Mabel was always looking out for him and he was extremely grateful for that. He thinks of Mabel like a sister to him. Steven gave Mabel the honorary role as Aunt to his kids.
