Pearce Stephens is a Phenotrans scientist and researcher as well as an enemy in the Dead Rising 2 case Case 7-2: The Only Lead. He reappears in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record with the same role in Case 8-2: The Only Lead.
Together with Mark Bradson, they are heard and seen talking about mature Queens ready for shipping. Pearce is told by Mark to call the head doctor to tell him that they are ready to harvest the shipment. Pearce pulls out a phone and calls the doctor and tells him the news while typing on a computer. As Chuck calls out to them as "poindexters", the two men each grab a pistol from the table and aim at Chuck, asking who he is and what he is doing there.
After their defeat Chuck inspects their laptop and tries to use it but it doesn't work because it is password protected. Chuck calls them bastards but takes the laptop as well as a cup of coffee. Chuck thanks the deceased scientists for the coffee, and then sees Mark's ID card. He picks it up and then sees a panel with a switch. He pulls it and goes off.
