Stevron is present when Catelyn visits Lord Walder Frey to negotiate passage for Robb's army across the Trident. He admonishes his father for forgetting his courtesies. Walder reminds Stevron that he is not yet Lord and then reluctantly kisses Catelyn's hand. Walder rudely dismisses Stevron and the rest of his very large family to talk with Catelyn in private.

In the books
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Stevron resembles a weasel, like his father. He has grey eyes. A man in his sixties, Stevron's appearance shows his age. His father has groomed him for lordship of the house, though he often jokes that Stevron has been waiting for him to die for forty years. Through his father, Stevron has learned to place great importance on the family; unlike his father, however, Stevron is amiable and reasonable. In the book, Stevron rides out to parley with the Stark army on their arrival.
Stevron participates in the council of Robb and his bannermen at Riverrun. He suggests to sit on the fence and let the two kings fight each other, then bend their knees to the winner or oppose him, as they see fit. He also suggests to offer a truce to Tywin, but is sharply silenced by other lords who wouldn't hear of making peace with the Lannisters.
Stevron is badly wounded at the Battle of Oxcross, but no one thinks his wounds are fatal; nonetheless, he is found dead in his tent three days later, having succumbed to his injuries. When the news about his death reach Winterfell, Lord Walder's grandsons, "Big" Walder and "Little" Walder, are not sad at all to hear their uncle is dead, they only argue who is the heir now.
Following Stevron's death, due to the primogeniture laws of the Seven Kingdoms, his own son Ryman becomes next in line to succeed Lord Walder, ahead of Walder's numerous younger sons.
When Robb consults with his mother how to appease Lord Frey for breaching the marriage pact, he comments that if Stevron was still alive - maybe there was a chance to smooth things over with the Freys.
Ryman is one of the Freys who welcome Robb and his followers to Edmure's wedding. Strangely, he tells Robb "If you would follow me, my father awaits" instead of "my grandfather"; it can be Martin's error, or a cruel joke of Ryman (who knew Robb would soon join the late Stevron). Robb pays no attention to that oddity, just as he ignores all the other warning signs - mainly Grey Wind's aggressive behavior toward the Freys.
His fate in the TV show is unknown, because it was never mentioned that a member of House Frey died during the timespan of the war; it was presumed he was still alive due to lack of evidence otherwise, but after the assassination with poisoned wine by Arya, it can be assumed that he died together with the other male members of House Frey.
