Stefan was Gloria Estabrook's servant.

He wishes Frank good luck, however. Much later, after all the guests have left, he brings in Mrs. Khan to speak with Gloria.
Stefan breaks into JB Cox's motel room and waits for him to return. He explains to JB that he failed to hand over the piece as is, which is why he hasn't been compensated. They didn’t want the idol, they wanted what was inside. JB’s delivery wasn’t complete, and he won’t get paid until it is. JB attacks Stefan out of anger, but he doesn’t land a single punch.
Frank shows up at Gloria's estate unexpected to speak with her. Stefan attempts to convince him to leave, as Gloria is on call. They suddenly hear a noise come from her study and find Joe and JB. JB has come for payment whereas Joe wants answers, as he believes that JB’s buyer has something to do with his mom’s death, which leads back to Gloria.

While Gloria distracts him, Stefan sneaks up on JB and knock him unconscious. Later, Stefan accompanies Frank and Joe to the Westdale movie theater to retrieve the Estabrook piece of, but Joe reveals that it was stolen from his hiding place.

Stefan later breaks free nd reports back to Gloria.
