Killed by Sao Feng
- "Hey, I know him. He was in Singapore!"
- ―Pintel after discovering Steng's corpse
Mercer assigned Steng with the task of spying on the Pirate Lord Sao Feng. Steng disguised himself as a Chinese pirate, sporting a fake dragon tattoo on his shoulder blade and infiltrated Feng's bath house in Singapore.
Steng was present during the meeting between Feng, Hector Barbossa and Elizabeth Swann. During the confrontation, Steng's tattoo started to run, and Feng realized the deception. However, Feng believed the spy was Barbossa's, and a battle ensued. The East India Company summarily staged an assault on the bath house.
Days after, Jack Sparrow and Barbossa discovered Steng's body on the island that also became the resting place of the Kraken. Steng had been impaled through the mouth by Feng's fid prior to the mutiny on the Black Pearl.
