- "If it means getting back to what matters and saving my world, I'll do it."
- — Stella Delphinus
Stella Delphinus is a 35 year old female Zora who is a playable character created by ShutUpNavi. First appearing in season 2 of Epoch of Disharmony Stella also reappears in season 3 of The Interloper War via a time-travel accident in the Fulmaren Laboratory. A fierce warrior and former general of the Zora Tribe, Stella seeks to protect her nation and redeem her tarnished legacy.
Stella was born almost a millennia ago in a long past age known as the Epoch Era. At the time the races and tribes of the land had yet to be unified under the Hyrulean flag, and the Hylian's and the Zora's were at constant odds. Born into this age Stella was raised as the heir to the Delphinus clan, a legendary family with a proud military history. Intent of continuing this tradition she quickly rose through the ranks and became the first female General in tribe history.
As war with the Hylian's became all but inevitable, it seemed Stella could finally get the chance to become the hero she always sought to be. Then in a single night all of that changed. A band of thieves hired by the King of Hyrule sneaked completely past the defenses Stella had put in place for Zora's Domain. Despite being impossibly outnumbered these criminals escaped unharmed with a legendary artifact of utmost power, the Zora Trust Key. A large war soon broke out afterwards over the incident and Stella was left flatfooted.
Days later she was demoted and her command given over to a Zora named Polaris Erindanus. Further shaming her Stella was nearly killed in combat at the Battle of Zora's Domain, and was only saved by a young Hylian girl and the Zora general who replaced her. Her last mission in her native era was to protect the Zora King when the Domain once again came under attack. Yet fate would have different plans for her.
Due to the vast tampering with the timeshift stones and other temporal magic during the Epoch War, the timestream became extremely unstable. Stella found herself engulfed by magic and was lost to all known space and time. Forced to drift aimlessly around the many alternate worlds of the multiverse along with several other adventurers who had suffered the same terrible fate, she fought desperately to find a way back home. Eventually Stella and her companions found their way back to their native Hyrule, but not in a place or time they knew...
Excellent in close to medium range combat with staffs and pole weapons. Stella can extended her fins to use as razor sharp melee weapons. She's a good swimmer, even by Zora standards. Can use limited wind magic and walk on walls (see equipment).
Stella's agility isn't up to par, so she lacks the stamina to fight for long periods of time, especially against multiple foes. She's also slow on her feet. Preforms poorly against ranged attacks. Stella has trouble adjusting to different climates and is extremely vulnerable to Fire or Ice attacks. In the year 2108 After Demise she can't read modern Hylian text and is unacquainted with the politics and customs of the Interloper Era.
Stella's Halberd: Stella's main weapon after she lost her Staff of Winds. It's an old but functional Voulge stolen from a Stalfos in the Great Sea alternate universe. The Halberd has an ax blade on the side and curved spikes on its top and bottom. Obtained on the timeline equivalent of Epoch Day 8.
Staff of Winds: A magic staff which can be swung around at high speeds. This metal rod was inherented from Stella's father who supposedly obtained it after meeting with a windfish. This staff can be used to generate blasts of whirlwinds, water currents, or waves. The staff was lost in the Battle of Zora's Domain on Epoch Night 7.
Conversion Boots: Techno-magical boots created by Sirius Fulmaren and obtained after defeating Davus Fulmen on Epoch Night 7. The boots make surfaces magnetic temporary, allowing Stella to walk on ceilings and walls. They also double as Hover Boots, allowing her to float on air and water for a few seconds.
Ella Huntley, a 19 year old female Hylian that became trapped with her in the alternate worlds of the Multiverse. She has tan skin, long dark brown hair, and a green tunic. A headstrong young woman, raised with a love of freedom and a stubborn streak. Despite the name she and Stella have no relation and have just meet hours ago.
Ella is the daughter of the legendary bounty hunter Marlow Huntley, and no push over herself. Ella has a deep love for her father, and seeks nothing more to get back to her home era to see him once again. Some might say she's jaded and cynical, but she'd prefer to call herself realistic. She has an extendable staff, a pair of long knives, and slew of throwing stars as her equipment.
Stella looks like your average Twilight Princess style Zora. She is covered in shades of light blue to white colored scales. The fins on her arms are long and sharp, but the fin on the back of her head is relativity small. Stella's eyes are lime green with red eyeliner surrounding them. Her fins go from being light yellow on their tops to being somewhat whitish on the tips. Stella has a big nose and her feet resemble Human shoes.
Stella wears a gold collar with purple scale like necklace on her shoulders. This scale necklace also has a Zora sapphire gem at the bottom. On her right arm is a gold and sapphire bracelet, while a shell ankle bracelet charm is on her left leg. Occasionally small (usually discrete) scars can be found on various parts of her body and fins from years of combat.
Stella is a proud nationalist of the Zora nation and the Delphinus clan. She was rased from an early age to fight for her nation and defend those who cant defend themselves. Being born in an era before the Hylian's and Zora were on good terms, she tends to view Human's dubiously and has a hard time trusting them. Stella is normally very polite and formal, especially towards superiors. Never the less she tends to be a bitter cynic about life and frequently talks behind people's backs.
Stella has somewhat of an inferiority complex and is always trying to prove herself as a result. Her biggest fear is that she is going to die one day, and no one will remember her (or remember her negatively). She tends to be very serious and doesn't understand humor very well. Stella loves combat and thinks nothing of throwing herself in harms way.

Stella and Severa manage to explore their way through these realms and have to fight for their lives several times. Along the way Stella finds Ella and Annie who have also been cast out of Hyrule. Eventually the four make it back to Hyrule and find themselves in the Fulmaren lab just as the Battle of the Timeshift Vault is going on. Unbeknownst to them Sirius’s Laboratory is from the Interloper Era, 908 years in the future.
After centuries of absorbing the stray time energy from King Dromand’s timestone destruction event, the death of Sirius in 2107 caused the Laboratory to be pulled backwards in time into the vault. As Lab itself ran out of time energy it was flung back to its own time period along with Stella, Ella, Severa, and Annie.
