Stephen Stanton is the oldest living child in the Stanton family. He is Will's favorite brother, despite the fifteen years between them. Stephen left home, having joined the British Navy. When he left, his room at the attic became Will's room. At the start of The Dark is Rising, he is referred to as "Lieutenant Stephen Stanton, R.N.". He is also referred to as "Steve" by his family. He meets many Old Ones at ports of call who have messages or gifts for Will, and becomes convinced that Will is involved in something illicit, like drug-running or smuggling.

In Silver on the Tree, Stephen is described as having a lanky body and blue eyes.
