Steel seems like a very simple pony. Doesn't say much, and when he does say something, it's rarely helpful to one side. He hates conflict, and usually goes out of his way to avoid it. He takes great pride in his work, but not too much. He recognizes he isn't the best smith in Equestria.

His quiet nature leaves some to believe, he's a bit thick, but the opposite is true. He's absorbed much through his lifetime, and he always like to stay in the know. Even if he comments on the side, he usually wants his opinion heard. Whether it be through shouting, or a strongly worded letter. But usually, he just minds his own business.

Steel Strike grew up in a rural town. His entire family consisted of craftsponies and trade workers. It was no surprise when his family learned of his special talent, smithing. Before even contemplating his own shop, unlike most of his family, he took an apprenticeship with another smith. He learned much from him, in a shorter amount of time then it would have taken on his own. His Master would always say "Steel, that's what makes you great. You keep your trap shut, and just listen to what ponies are saying. Most youth go off and run their mouth off, and get themselves into a heap of trouble. You just sit there, and listen." His master was right in this respect, and Strike didn't mind it one bit.

Soon after he left his apprenticeship, war broke out. He was called on by the army to supply them with whatever they needed, and he obliged. He was you and eager back then. But after eight years of war, it took a toll on his body. After the defeat at Canterlot, Strike didn't know what to think. It shocked him to be honest. He'd been raised in Equestria all his life. How his world crumbled was scary, to say the least. He laid low a few months into the occupation, to avoid being captured and sent to work as a slave for the griffons. He re-opened his shop after a while, under the name, "Tools and Repairs". He began living his life under the occupation, and it was much drearier then before. He had less money, and not many ponies came to see him. He scraps by, repairing this, and creating a tool every once in a while. He obeys the laws set forth by the griffon kingdom. Including the rule stating no pony smith would be allowed to craft weapons or armor that wasn't directly sanctioned by the griffon kingdom. Sadly, Strike realized that 'Directly Sanctioned' meant imprisioned and forced to work , so he always stays within his bounds. He has heard whispering of a rebellion. But to Strike, it could never be powerful enough to stand up to the Griffon army. In his mind, only the re-appearance of Celestia and Luna, or even The Elements of Harmony, could justify another war on the griffons. Until he met Megabyte Stream.
