Final Fantasy Wiki

Stella is a non-playable character from Final Fantasy V. She lived in Lix and was the the wife of Dorgann and mother of Bartz. Stella died of what seemed to be a chronic illness and only appears in flashbacks. She had long green hair, and Bartz remembers her fondly, always wanting the three of them to stay together and live out a peaceful family life.


Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Stella, Dorgann and Bartz in their house in the town of Lix.

If Bartz visits his old house and listens to the music box on the table near the window, he flashes back to the moment his mother died. He recalls Stella speaking of her "spasms" becoming less frequent, although she still wished Dorgann to remain at home so that the three of them could live as a family for a while longer. Dorgann intended to leave on another adventure despite this, but before he could, Stella collapsed and died. Bartz can visit her grave in Lix.

When Bartz and his new friends cross the ship graveyard, Siren uses an illusion of Stella to steal Bartz's soul. She is unsuccessful thanks to Galuf forcing Bartz to come to his senses.
