Dragon Quest series character
Dragon Quest IX
Japanese Name サンディー
Rōmaji Sandy
Title Co-Pilot of the Starlight Express
Race Faerie

Stella (サンディー Sandī?, Sandy) is a Faerie. She has blonde hair and a very deep tan. She speaks like a "Gal," a term used to describe a young girl, and is notoriously prone to malapropisms. Stella is an extremely important character in the Dragon Quest IX story. In fact, she is the Co-Pilot of the broken down Starlight Express. She promises to help the Hero return to the Observatory if they can prove they're Celestrian. By helping humans, the Hero gathers Benevolessence, though they can no longer see them. Their ability to aid and protect the humans convinces Stella who, restoring power to the celestial train with the Benevolessence, helps the Hero return to the Observatory.

She helps out with the Battle Records. If the hero earns an accolade and views the battle records, Stella will tell them that they earned it and add it to their list of accolades.
