|Dragon Quest IX|
|Title||Co-Pilot of the Starlight Express|
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.
Stella appears as a monster in Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 Professional. She was released (in Japan only) as one of many monsters in a cooperative promotion between McDonald's and Square Enix.
Stella appears as a playable character in Fortune Street.
Stella appears in the 3DS version in various places on the world map after defeating Rhapthorne the first time. Talking to her nets the Hero several rewards, and talking her picture will unlock challenges in Cameron's Codex.
- If tapped with the stylus on the Battle Records menu in DQIX, she will evade (with appropriate sound cue).
- The shoes she's wearing (Blahnolo Maniks) are named after Manolo Blahnik.
