|Relative(s)||Renee Lauer (maternal aunt)|
Stefan was the nephew of Captain Renee Lauer and a member of the Scarlet Crusade. He participated in a raid, where Rinn Firecaster and Jillian Grell were murdered by his aunt. He kept questioning his aunt's and the Crusade's motives. Once he was practising with Renee and once again questioned the Crusade's mission. Renee became enraged and overpowered him, but stopped her sword right beside his neck. Her angry expression became a smile and she assured him that their cause is righteous.
He managed to rescue his aunt when she had been captured by Barnabas Grell and Reynah Firecaster. After the rescue Renee wanted to make an example of her capturers, and it was then Stefan heard their reasons for capturing his aunt; they wanted revenge for her killing of their family. During the same conversation he also found out that the undead, blood elves and humans weren't that different at all. He was shocked when the elf and Forsaken were executed by orders of Renee. Few moments later, the camp was attacked by the Forsaken led by Sylvanas Windrunner and Varimathras, and he was killed alongside his aunt during the attack. With his final breath he spoke of the wrongs of the Crusade.
