|~ Stella talking to Striker over the phone, also her most famous quote.|
Stella Goetia (also known as Stella) is a major antagonist of the adult animated black comedy web-series Helluva Boss, serving as the main antagonist of Season 1.
She serves as the overarching antagonist of 2 episodes, "Loo Loo Land" and "The Harvest Moon Festival", and it could possibly be the main antagonist of the upcoming Episode 6.
She is the vindictive wife of Stolas, the mother of Octavia, and a member of the royal Goetia family of Hell. After finding out her husband cheated on her with the imp Blitzo, she ruthlessly plotted his assassination and plans to kill him for his infidelity using any means necessary. She is also as the Arch-Nemesis of Blitzo.
She is voiced by Georgina Leahy.
Her appearance in the pilot is extremely minor and doesn't give much detail to her character. It is established though that she doesn't approve of Stolas' affairs with Blitzo due to Blitzo being an imp. However, before then it is established that their relationship wasn't a very healthy one from the start either. When Octavia cried for them, Stella refused to respond and told Stolas to handle it.
Loo Loo Land
In her first characterize appearance, she is angrily ranting at Stolas for sleeping with an imp in their bed and storms out, destroying some of Stolas' plants as she does.
The Harvest Moon Festival
The end of the episode establishes her as a dangerous villain when it is revealed that she hired Striker to assassinate Stolas. When Striker calls to tell her he failed due to I.M.P. getting in the way and ensures her it wouldn't happen again, she warns him that it better not as she tells him to deal with anybody who gets in his way.
Stella is a very wrathful demon who has grown to hate her husband, Stolas, due to his open relationship with Blitzo, however, she has made it very clearly numerous times she is not concerned her husband cheated on her but rather is enraged he did so with an imp, which she takes as a personal insult.
This brings Stella's second trait to light, namely a deep hatred of imps, who are regarded as the lowest class of demon in Hell, as such she sees them as servants at best (by though she will happily employ an imp to assassinate her husband for her)
Violence is Stella's main go-to in regards to solving any problem but she does not seem to abuse her daughter. She is, however, very distant and does not seem to have a strong maternal side — instead it is Stolas who seems to care for Octavia's emotional needs (it is unknown how much Stella provides for Octavia in other matters).
For all her negative qualities it was hinted by Stolas himself that he and Stella did have a happier relationship at some point, though it may also of been an arranged marriage rather than one born of love (considering Stolas' obsession with Blitzo it is possible he was forced into marrying Stella).
- The name "Stella" is the Latin word for "star", fitting the astrology theme signature to Stolas.
- It is unknown if she was the one who gave Striker the gun that granted him the ability to kill demon royalty (however this is unlikely as Striker ends with showing he has a blessed pistol, hinting that Striker has a large supply of angelic weapons - if she did provide him with such weapons she is the first confirmed demon in the show to have access to Exorcist technology).
- While it is too early to know for certain, it is very likely that she will be the main antagonist of the show (at the very least the first season). The same goes to the prospect of her no longer cares towards her own daughter thus indifferent to how Octavia reacted if she ever learned her mother's attempt murder on Stolas.
