Consider a finite group $G$ and a prime number $p$ dividing the order of $G$. A $p$-regular element of $G$ is an element whose order is coprime to $p$. An irreducible character $\chi$ of $G$ is called a quasi $p$-Steinberg character if $\chi(g)$ is nonzero for every $p$-regular element $g$ in $G$. The quasi $p$-Steinberg character is a generalization of the well-known $p$-Steinberg character. A group, which does not have a non-linear quasi $p$-Steinberg character, can not be a finite group of Lie type of characteristic $p$. Therefore, it is natural to ask for the classification of all non-linear quasi $p$-Steinberg characters of any finite group $G$. In this joint work with Digjoy Paul and Pooja Singla, we classify quasi $p$-Steinberg characters of all finite complex reflection groups.
