Before Dark Woods III
Somewhere in the first game, or maybe even the second game, Lamia collected DNA from Hein and Rai in order to make a new freak which could have act as replacement for Hein if they were unable to get him. However Stein was never used and left in Lamia's workplace, inactivated.
In Dark Woods II you can enter the workplace of Lamia which is reminiscent of Dr. Frankenstein's laboratory in some ways. The table he has been made on can be spotted. In the back are two glass pods, one having condense on it so you can't see what is inside. When zooming in on the label you can see it reads: Stein.
Dark Woods III: The Plague Returns
Stein appears as a boss in Dark Woods III. Ashley retrieved Stein out of the old workplace of Lamia when she moved her base to the brand new carnival. Stein appears twice throughout the game as a boss and has some small interaction with Ashley. In his first battle he awaits Hein and the others at the circus tent where he battles them. However he manages to flee before being taken down.
After his first battle he returns back to Ashley to get himself patched up again but soon after is ordered by Ashley to follow and kill Hein and Rai. He followed them and fought them in the top of the windmill. Unfortunately he got completely destroyed there and was left behind in pieces in the windmill. It later was revealed by Ashley, and could be read upon further in Lamia's workplace, that Stein was made out of the DNA of Hein infused with the powers of Rai. Nothing is heard of Stein anymore in the rest of the game.
Dark Woods IV: Descend
It is confirmed Stein will return for this game. It is unknown what role he will play.
Stein is an artificial being, and the first one Lamia created out of an empty vessel. Because of this Stein lacks certain traits that a human does have, like speech or common knowledge of things. He is a brute who gets quickly angered and cannot be reasoned with. He does not have much personality other than that.
Powers & Abilities
Despite Stein being a clone of Hein, his powers bare more resemblance to those of Rai. It is speculated that his production already begun in Dark Woods because Lamia had easy access to Rai. Stein can manipulate the electricity that is flowing through its body and the lightning from the sky. To enhance this he has a rather large claymore with a gear design called the 'Lightning Gear' with which redirecting lightning is easy. Aside from this he is incredibly strong, possibly even stronger than Rai.
- The idea of including Stein in the game was because of a child who is friends with the creator drew his own version of Hein. He looked tougher, had green skin and had lightning bolts around him and thus Stein was created.
- In Dark Woods II there were two pods in Lamia's workplace of which one was empty. In the trailer that revealed Stein, the pod next to Stein's now also had condense on it, meaning there might be someone inside as well. Upon further investigation it was concluded that the label read: 'Bride'.
