Demons that are part of the Ars Goetia caste.
open/close all folders
- 0% Approval Rating: Striker refers to Goetia as rich and pompous, the reaction from the Wrath Ring Imps to Stolas and his speech at the Harvest Moon festival (scowls and booing) further implies that the Goetia are reviled, at least by the lower casts of demons.
- Blue Blood: Goetic demons constitute one of the top tiers in Hells hierarchy, just below the Seven deadly sins, which are just below King Lucifer and his family. They even outrank Overlords.
- Dysfunctional Family: Stolas is clearly unhappy with Stella and resorts to having affairs with Blitzo. Stella is aware of this and is always yelling at her husband for it, until it's revealed that she hates him so much that she ended up hiring a hitman on him. The former clearly loves their daughter Octavia, but Stolas' obliviousness, cheating and constant arguments with Stella caused her to become somewhat alienated from them.
- Feathered Fiend: The confirmed goetic demons seen thus far are all based on owls, having feathers and beaks. In fact, one derogatory term for them as a group, are Birds.
- Wacky Parent, Serious Child: Compared to her perverted carefree father and her tantrum-throwing mother, Octavia is the serious child to both of her parents.
"We're rich and we're hot. People want our money and our bodies."
Voiced by: Brock Baker (pilot), Bryce Pinkham (series) (English), Joris Georges (French)
An Owl-like demon prince who is responsible for granting I.M.P the grimoire required to access Earth. (Un)fortunately for Blitzo, however, the way he initially acquired said grimoire also left Stolas deeply infatuated with him, and he doesn't intend to quit anytime soon.
- 0% Approval Rating: When he's giving his speech at the Harvest Moon Festival, none of the imps are shown to be pleased to see him. One of them is even heard booing. This most likely has to do with him being royalty, who are well-known for looking down on those of low social status,especially imps.
- Abhorrent Admirer: He's obsessed with Blitzo, and can be downright sleazy and possessive about it. He's also quite condescending, baby talking Blitzo and calling him "Blitzy" even when the situation calls for his real name. Blitzo puts up with it and agrees to Stolas's terms of letting I.M.P. use the grimoire in exchange for monthly sex, but makes no secret of his distaste for Stolas's behavior, insulting him openly and often. Truth Seekers has this Played for Drama a bit, as Blitzo is very much aware of the power imbalance between the two of them, viewing himself during a truth gas-induced Mushroom Samba episode as being in golden chains while a hallucination of Stolas looks over him.
- Affably Evil:
- Being a member of Hell's nobility, he has a vested interest in getting as many souls into Hell as possible, and "Murder Family" shows that he's not above moving a few goalposts in order to get what he wants. To his credit, however, he's shown to genuinely care about his daughter Octavia, and his Instagram shows that when confronted with a drunk Blitzo, his first instinct was apparently to put him to bed rather than try anything else.
- Although it was soft reconned around the time of the first episode being released, the Instagram accounts played him very much as this. For a while, the bulk of his characterization involved pajama movie nights with Blitzo, kinky encounters with Blitzo without mention of the grimoire, bonding with Moxxie, bringing coffee to I.M.P., and generally being incredibly nice to everyone around him with the exception of Valentino.
- Aggressive Submissive: Despite calling up Blitzo about sex, a good deal of his comments are about Blitzo being inside of him. "The Harvest Moon Festival" starts with him and Blitzo having just finished up a BDSM session... where he was the one tied up.
- Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Several pictures on his Instagram show him being obliviously embarrassing to his daughter Octavia. He also likes to post Octavia's baby pictures and gush about how cute she was as an owlet. Octavia is less than amused when he does this.
- Ambiguously Bi: He's in an unhappy marriage with his wife and head-over-heels in love with a male imp, but it's unclear whether he's gay and has been repressing his sexuality for years, or he's bi/pan and Blitzo's gender has nothing to do with his attraction to him. His remark about Blitzo being "the only man who can f**k [him]" in Episode 2, as well as the heavy implication that he never loved Stella to begin with seems to imply that he might be demisexualnote Demisexual people only feel sexually attracted to someone when they have an emotional bond with the person, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet.
- Anger Born of Worry: After possessing Agent 2 and all of the corpses of the dead D.H.O.R.K.S. agents to create a summoning circle for himself and scaring the life out of Agents 1 and 2, he checks in on I.M.P. to make sure that they're all okay, especially Blitzo, and after ensuring that they're all well, he dresses them down for getting caught, and then summarily opens a portal back to Hell for them.
Stolas: Are you alright?
Blitzo: Ugh, I'm fine, Stolas.
Stolas: Hmm, good. HOWTHEFUCK did you get caught by humans?! Are you little creatures not being careful up here? You know, if you get in trouble, I get in trouble, WE don't want that!
- Animalistic Abomination: Hes an anthropomorphic owl demon, and while not as blatant about the eldritch side of himself as other examples, the fact that hes powerful enough to kill an attempted kidnapper by simply glaring at him, along with being able to survive in deep space with no issues whatsoever, indicates something very off about him as a whole. The eldritch part comes out in full during "Truth Seekers" when he manifests as a giant shadowy owl that fills the whole room, his four glowing eyes becoing extra prominent, walking with his wings like a Wyvern, and having a beak lined with needle-like fangs.
- Awful Wedded Life: His marriage with Stella is anything but happy; "Loo Loo Land" shows him getting into what is implied to be yet another fight with his wife over his affairs. It's implied at the end that it was bad long before he started sleeping with Blitzo, and that they never really loved each other to begin with. It's heavily implied that the only reason he stays with Stella is for Octavia's sake. Episode 5 reveals that it's deteriorated to the point where Stella hired a hitman to kill him.
- Badass in Distress: Subverted. He hires I.M.P to act as his "bodyguards" while spending the day at Loo Loo Land, but never actually seems bothered whenever he actually does get attacked by assassins. In fact, the one time he gets attacked when no one from I.M.P is around, he casually kills the attacker himself with a look, implying hiring I.M.P had less to do with any fear of danger than it did with having an excuse to hang out with Blitzo.
- Batman Can Breathe in Space: He and his daughter can apparently breathe in the vacuum of space on a planet with no atmosphere. In "Loo Loo Land", Stolas wakes up to console a young Octavia of the nightmare she just had by singing her a lullaby. He uses the grimoire to transport them into space where they both witness meteors crashing into planets, planetoids breaking up, and even a star going supernova before he brings her back to tuck her into bed.
- The Beautiful Elite: A high-class demon, and a looker at that. He lampshades this in "Loo Loo Land", explaining that his family's money and bodies are reasons for being targeted by potential assailants. His daughter Octavia believes it's only the former, to which he tells her to speak for herself.
- Beware the Silly Ones: With how dramatic, pompous, and lustful he acts, it's easy to forget he's a powerful prince of Hell who can turn demons to stone with a simple glare. In a BLM charity livestream, Vivienne has even said that, although their powers work differently, Stolas is even more powerful than Alastor. He displays this in full force during the climax of "Truth Seekers", where he saves I.M.P. with an utterly pants-shitting entrance akin to a horror film.
- Blue Blood: He's a high ranking royal within Hell's hierarchy with the power and charisma to match.
- Bumbling Dad: While there's no question that Stolas loves Octavia, he doesn't understand her and well-intentioned attempts to bond with her rarely work out. It's not just because she's a teenager, since he also assumed she loved Robo Fizz's show as a little girl when it really scared her to tears.
- Bunnies for Cuteness: When Octavia was a little owlette, Stolas wore a pair of bunny slippers around the house.
- Caring Gardener: In one Instagram post, he is shown to have a garden which he personally tends to. He also gives Moxxie advice on growing sunflowers. In episode 2 he's shown to have several plants about the palace and affectionately hand-feeds a large carnivorous plant a slab of steak. This is a case of Shown Their Work, as the mythological Stolas was known for possessing knowledge of poisonous plants and herbs.
- Censored for Comedy: A lot of his dialogue is filled with bleeps, especially when he describes what he wants to do with Blitzo (or vice versa) in great detail. He is the only character so far to be enforced with this, and notably the F-word is left uncensored whenever he's not using it in the context of sex.
- Cerebus Retcon: His earlier Depraved Bisexual moments which were Played for Laughs are hit hard by this in "Loo Loo Land". Not only is his wife angry with him sleeping with someone else who is also Hell's equivalent of a peasant, his daughter is living in a broken home while constantly fearing that her father will leave her for Blitzo.
- Character Blog: He has an Instagram account called daddy_hoothoot.
- Characterization Marches On: He was a far more menacing presence in the pilot and "Murder Family", launching into filthy Cluster F Bombs and cutting a sexual deal with Blitzo despite knowing the latter was in danger and less in a position to protest. His later appearances play him as more Innocently Insensitive than malicious, and stress that for all his many flaws, his utter adoration of Blitzo and Octavia is sincere.
- Complaining About Rescues They Don't Like: In Loo Loo Land, Stolas response to being "saved" from a tiny imp assassin by Millie instead of Blitzo is to complain that his "knight in shining armor" wasn't the one to do so.
- Contrasting Sequel Main Character: One for Alastor, being a prominent demon who acts as the main organization's powerful but mistrusted and resented benefactor. But that's where the similarities end. While Alastor's a relatively young demon who seized his position with sheer power, Stolas is an ancient noble who likes to play politics. Alastor is chummy and informal, but Stolas is aloof and refined. Alastor is generally loud and exuberant but revels in using Tranquil Fury to get his point across when he's serious, while Stolas is a subdued individual who gets loud when he wants people to pay attention. To say nothing of the difference in their sex drives and sexual preferences, what with Alastor being asexual to the point of briefly getting disturbed at an offered blowjob before laughing it off, while Stolas is so into the idea that his spiel ends up getting a Cluster Bleep-Bomb.
- Cool Crown: Stolas has a crown around his top hat.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Foppish personality and infatuation with Blitzo aside, he is still a prince of hell and the end of "Loo Loo Land" implies that he is more than capable of protecting himself.
- Crystal Ball: Uses the bubbles in his bath to scry on Blitzo, calling him up to renegotiate their deal while Blitzo himself is very clearly not in a position to talk. Stolas either doesn't notice or doesn't care as long as he can get Blitzo to agree to his terms.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Zig-zagged. He's a demon noble whose true form is a Living ShadowAnimalistic Abomination who, although interested in mass death and implied to be a bit ruthless is very much an Affably EvilAnti-Villain, a good parent to his daughter Octavia, and a very loving and compassionate person when you're on his good side who pets WAY more dogs than he kicks. For example, in Truth Seekershe spares the last two surviving agents without harming them beyond a scare.
- A Day in the Limelight: Stolas is a major supporting character, but his relationship with his daughter, Octavia, is the main focus of the second episode, "Loo Loo Land".
- Deadly Gaze: Can turn someone into stone with his eyes if sufficiently annoyed.
- Deal with the Devil: Is implied to be a "dealmaker" like Alastor. And in "Murder Family" he presents Blitzo with a positively Faustian bargain when the imp has no time to argue with him.
- Demon Lords and Archdevils: Like the Ars Goetia demon he's based after, he's a prince of Hell.
- Demonic Possession: Episode 6 reveals he has this ability when he possess Number Two and uses corpses to make a summoning circle.
- Depraved Bisexual: It's uncertain whether he's this or a Depraved Homosexual, but he's quite sexually obsessive, and allows Blitzo access to the grimoire on the condition that Blitzo has sex with him every full moon.
- Doting Parent: He adores his daughter Octavia.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones:
- Despite being a prince of Hell who actively seeks to cause more large scale deaths on Earth, Stolas' has repeatedly shown both on Instagram and in the series proper that he absolutely adores his daughter Octavia, always doing his best to try and make her happy, even as his deteriorating marriage cause difficulties for their family.
- He also shows that, while their relationship is one of transactional sex in exchange for his grimoire (and is rather one-sided), Stolas feels genuine affection for Blitzo, as he's shown to be much happier around the imp than with his wife. He thinks nothing of calling Blitzo "my darling Blitzy" in front of a large crowd and indeed, had to assure Octavia that he had no intentions of running off with Blitzo forever.
- Even Evil Has Standards:
- His Instagram shows him happily going to see Blitzo with dirty thoughts clearly in mind, realizing Blitzo is drunk, and tucking him into bed with water and some aspirin. He reacts very frostily to the implication that he would have done anythingelse.
- When a person on Instagram suggested putting a tracker on Blitzo to keep track of him, he refused, stating that doing so would be going too far.
- Despite being an Abhorrent Admirer to Blitzo, he really doesn't like Valentino, a pimp who abuses his employees and friends, based on various comments made by Stolas on a number of posts found across the various character Instagram accounts. In fact, he doesn't like the three closely associated overlords, Valentino, Vox, and Velvet, in general however it's Valentino that Stolas has the most scorn for.
- For all of his supposed debauchery and the like, his daughter Octavia is a line he will never cross. In "Loo Loo Land", Blitzo misinterprets Stolas' call for protection to mean that he wants Octavia to be involved in their affair, to which Stolas is both disturbed and a tiny bit angry, prompting to clarify his request.
- Evil Is Petty: The pilot has him wanting Blitzo to kill a human climate change activist to help ensure nothing is done about global warming so more people will die as a consequence of it and end up in Hell. Despite being a powerful demon with a vested interest in sowing chaos on Earth, instead of giving that as his reason for wanting such a thing, he requests it just simply because he's lonely and wants more people in Hell to interact with.
- Evil Laugh: Can be heard making one while he is summoning himself in Truth Seekers.
- Expressive Accessory: The Loo Loo Land hat he wears while visiting the park occasionally changes its expression along with Stolas. Most notably, it is sad when Stolas discards it or notices his daughter crying.
- Extra Eyes: He has a second pair of eyes on top of his head. These are most apparent whenever he doesn't wear headwear that obscures the fact that he has them.
- Failed a Spot Check: He personally intervenes to save I.M.P from D.H.O.R.K.S, deciding to spare Agent One and Two, but didn't notice they've all been caught on camera, giving the human world indisputable evidence of the supernatural.
- Feather Motif: Fittingly for a bird demon, episode 6 has both his arrival in Blitzo's fantasy and his arrival on Earth heralded by feathers—in the former, they're glowing gold feathers that rain from the sky and shackle Blitzo, in the latter, they along with Stolas' true form are vomitted out by Agent Two after Stolas possesses her.
- Highlighted by thecommentinteractionstheyhavehadwith one another on the character Instagram accounts and etc., Stolas is a foil to Valentino. Both are demons with homosexual leanings and are in relationships with other male demons distinctly below them in terms of power (and who do not reciprocate their affections). But while Valentino is a totally unsympatheticBad Boss who abuses Angel Dust financially and sexually, Stolas is genuinely infatuated with Blitzo, and shows at least some concern for Blitzo's general well-being. Going further, Valentino doesn't appear to have any healthy relationships, while Stolas is a Good Parent to his daughter.
- To Lucifer Magne. Both are obscenely powerful demons of Hell's aristocracy from classic demonology. While Lucifer is implied to be an aloof parent (at best) who is trying to toughen up Charlie, his daughter chomping at the bit for his approval, Stolas is a doting father to Octavia who is herself aloof to him. While Lucifer and Lilith are Happily Married, Stolas and Stella are implied to have a Marriage of Convenience and loved each other so little that Stolas is having an affair with Blitzo, Stella more upset that it is with an imp (code: peasant) than the fact that he's cheating on her in the first place.
- Furry Reminder:
- His family refrigerator has a baggy full of dead mice in it, obviously because they're all owls.
- Some imp assassins trying to kidnap him place a bag over his head, which is an actual method used to keep birds from getting aggressive.
- Also like owls, Stolas can turn his head 180 degrees.
- Good Parents: He certainly tries his best to make his daughter happy: Comforting her with a song when she's scared, attempting to distract her after having caught her parents in a fight, and reassuring Octavia that he has no plans to abandon her when she voices her worries on the matter. That's not even including his Papa Wolf tendencies towards her.
- Henpecked Husband: "Loo Loo Land" implies this is his relationship with his wife. Notably, while Stella is busy shouting loudly at Stolas for cheating on her with an imp, Stolas doesn't raise his voice to counter hers but rather meekly alternates between downplaying his actions and trying to calm her down. Even when she outright demands her husband's death, it's shown that he tunes her out as well.
- Hidden Depths: Based on some posts his Instagram account, Stolas is very skilled at drawing.
- High Collar of Doom: Appropriate for a high lord of Hell, he wears a long, high-collared cape. While it's patterned like a classical royal cape, the fluffiness of it also resembles a bird's plumage.
- Hypocritical Humor: In "Loo Loo Land", Stolas chides Blitzo and Octavia to watch their language while in the first two episodes, the majority of his dialogue was a Cluster Bleep-Bomb and Censored for Comedy.
- Innocently Insensitive:
- During "Loo Loo Land," he attempts to distract Octavia from their awful home life by taking her to Loo Loo Land. Problem? a) She's too old for it and repeatedly tells him so, b) he brings along the man he's cheating on her mother with and constantly flirts with him right in front of her. Octavia is eventually driven to tears over it, and Stolas apologizes at the end of the episode.
- Stolas seems genuinely infatuated with Blitzo, but his childish baby-talk while flirting and insistence on calling him by his pet name "Blitzy," even in public, makes it seem like he doesn't respect Blitzo. To the point that in Episode 5, when Striker offers his We Can Rule Together spiel, one of the offers he makes is to help Blitzo not rely on the noble who "treats [him] like a plaything."
- He's not really malicious, but he's also rather bad at considering the feelings of anyone else around him, blithely operating under the impression that if he's having fun, everyone else is or will be. His apology to Octavia for behaving this way suggests he wants to do right by those he cares about, but will only do so after he can no longer deny that there's a problem.
- Insistent Terminology: Calling his magical book a "grimoire", presumably its proper title. He even corrects Blitzo, who calls it just a book.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: A pompous, condescending adulterer with a shaky concept of consent, but a deeply loving father.
- Jerkass to One: As noted above, pretty much the only person to illicit true hatred from him is Valentino. Be it his abusive attitude or massive ego, Valentino really gets under his skin.
- Large and in Charge: Is twice as tall as Blitzo, who is of average human height. He is also one of the most powerful authority characters in the overall setting barring Lucifer, his family and the Exorcists.
- Large Ham: Stolas, being royalty frequently indulges in luscious wordplay in public situations and especially with Blitzo.
- Lean and Mean: Is impossibly thin and orders hits on politicians who say that global warming exists.
- Leitmotif: Stolas Speaks, an enchantingly haunting piano piece that switches to a more orchestral, brassy version depending on Stolas's mood - such as when he petrifies a demon attacking him during an emotional scene, or when he possesses the corpses of government agents to summon himself onto Earth.
- Marriage of Convenience: He never outrights states it, but when talking about his marriage in "Loo Loo Land" to Octavia, he heavily implies that he didn't marry Stella out of love.
- Meal Ticket: Episode 5 clearly states that Blitzo's company is able to exist at all thanks to having Stolas as his sugar daddy. While Stolas doesn't give him any monetary assistance, he's the owner of the grimoire that's pretty much the backbone of I.M.P.
- Modest Royalty: When not performing his royal duties or posing for family portraits, Stolas is shown to be very casual and laid-back. He wears a simple bath robe and bunny slippers around the house, happily wears Loo Loo Land souvenir clothes at the titular theme park, and his Instagram shows him wearing casual everyday wear as often as he can. This causes a lot of friction with his Socialite wife, who wears a Pimped-Out Dress even at home, as she finds his lack of propriety to be "a goddamn embarrassment!"
- Monochromatic Eyes: Zig-zagged. His four eyes are a solid red color, but when sufficiently excited or startled, his primary set of eyes gain a pair of little white pupils, though the eyes atop his head remain the same regardless.
- Mundane Utility: The flashback that starts off "Loo Loo Land" shows that when he had the grimoire, he was quite open to using it for some personal fun when he didn't have a job involving it, such as teleporting himself and a young Octavia to the location of a dying star simply to act as a fitting backdrop for his lullaby to her.
- Narcissist: His house has a number of portraits of himself scattered along the walls.
- Nice Hat: He typically wears a uniquely designed hat that can be described as a combination of a top hat and a royal crown.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: Stolas' voice in the pilot is extremely similar to Anthony Head as proven in theseclips.
- No Social Skills: He's remarkably lacking in social tact. From continuously failing to recognise how put-off and annoyed by his "flirting" Blitzo is to his best attempt at defending his cheating from Stella being he didn't have the time to book a motel.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: While he mostly comes off as comedically pompus and perverted, he's still one of the most powerful individuals in Hell and willing to cause millions of deaths out of loneliness. "Loo Loo Land" shows just how dangerous he is when he casually petrifies an imp who was trying to attack him. He hammers this in Episode 6, where he possesses Agent 2 and forces the corpses of numerous dead agents to draw a pentagram that summons him. Not to mention his true form, an Animalistic Abomination of an owl with 4 eyes and numerous sets of fangs.
- Not Helping Your Case: When his wife Stella becomes furious to learn that he slept with an imp in their bed, Stolas tries to reassure her that he only did that because he didn't have time to find a motel. Unsurprisingly, this just makes Rich BitchStella even more furious.
- Ominous Owl: Stolas is an owl demon, and is based on the likewise named prince of Hell listed in the Ars Goetia, who's frequently portrayed as a long-legged owl. Meanwhile, his dark plumage and white, heart-shaped facial disc seem mostly based on Sooty Owls, a pair of Australian Barn-Owl species.
- One-Winged Angel: He's capable of transforming himself into a huge, shadowy monster when the need arises. Whether this is his true form or not is ambiguous.
- Papa Wolf: Stolas is very protective of Octavia. Despite his own rather perverted nature, he threatened on Instagram that if anyone even thought inappropriate things about his daughter they would beg for death. In the "Loo Loo Land" episode, Stolas pretended to be helpless against the kidnapping attempts, up until one threatened his bonding with his daughter, at which point he petrified the imp with just a look.
- Parents as People: While he genuinely tries to be a good father to Octavia, he's far from perfect, having to juggle his duties in Hell and his deteriorating marriage alongside that.
- Pimped-Out Cape: Wears one that's trimmed with fur at the top.
- Precision F-Strike:
- He yells "fucking" while talking to Blitzo during his obscene rant in the pilot.
- He does it again in "Truth Seekers" while reprimanding I.M.P. for doing their business disguise-less. This case is particularly noteworthy in that its his only time swearing WITHOUT a bleep or Cluster F-Bomb.
- Red and Black and Evil All Over: The two most prominent colors in his appearance are red and black, and he's definitely not a good person, since he's willing to order assassinations with the explicit intent of causing the deaths of even more people.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: His eyes at all times are primarily red, and he's a prince of Hell who's implied to be rather high up on the totem pole when it comes to power, at least of the political kind. His eyes also glow a brighter shade of red when he's being passionate about something.
- Rich Bastard: Blitzo calls Stolas a "privileged asshole", and between his sexual depravities and casually ordering the assassination of politicians he dislikes, its not hard to see why.
- Shown Their Work: If not for certain...quirks, he could have easily been the demon prince described in the Ars Goetia and no one would have noticed the difference:
- He's a long-legged, owl-like demon with a crown on his hat. The demon that he's named after is often portrayed in art as a long-legged owl wearing a crown◊.
- The walls of his castle and corners of his balcony are decorated with the seal associated with Stolas in the Ars Goetia.
- Him being shown as a Caring Gardener and his mansion being filled to the brim with various Man Eating Plants coincides with the fact that in demonology he is stated to be knowledgeable about herbs and plants.
- His bathtub is surrounded by moving constellations, and he shows Octavia a dying solar system during his song. The original Stolas teaches astronomy.
- When he summons himself in "Truth Seekers", the summoning circle is designed exactly like the one described in the Ars Goetia for summoning him.
- Shout-Out: His Instagram username might be a reference to Hoothoot, a species of Pokémon.
- Single-Target Sexuality: It's implied that his marriage to his wife wasn't exactly based on love, meaning the only character he shows any attraction to is Blitzo.
- Sophisticated as Hell: He sounds and acts like he has the proper amount of class his position demands... right up until he goes into an overly horny and very graphic rant about what he wants to do with Blitzo.
- Sympathetic Adulterer: He suddenly found himself in love with Blitzo, after what it seemed like just a typical deal for the possession of the grimoire, despite or even thanks to being stuck in a rocky (at best) marriage. "Loo Loo Land" revealed his marriage with Stella was deteriorating long before he even met Blitzo, and he confesses to his daughter he did try to make it work with Stella for Via's sake, but he just can't fool his heart anymore. Then there's the fact that Stella called a hit on him...
- Taken for Granite: Can do this to lesser demons with just a glare.
- Thinking Up Portals: While in the flashback for "Loo Loo Land" he was shown needing the grimoire to open portals, when he shows up in "Truth Seekers" he displays the ability to conjure portals at will, implying he memorized the spell enough to do it naturally. This also hints that he engaged in Demonic Possession and cult-style summoning specifically for the terror factor.
- Too Much Information: Gives outright filthy descriptions of having sex with Blitzo as a closing statement whenever he calls him.
- Unequal Pairing: Lampshaded by Striker in Episode 5, who points out how Blitzo (as a lowly imp) is in a position where he has to have sex with one of Hell's royalty to gain access to the living world to run his business. Truth Seekers plays with this further, showing Stolas at the top of a shining staircase Blitzo attempts to ascend, only to be knocked to all fours and forced to crawl the rest of the way, his clown attire transforming away further with each gilded chain Stolas attaches to him.
- Villainous Widow's Peak: His heart-shaped facial disc creates this effect, with his darker plumage plunging to a sharp point between his lower set of eyes.
- Wicked Cultured: A refined and aristocratic individual who's willing to order assassinations simply to help slake his loneliness. That's not to say he can't get crude, however, as shown by his phone calls with Blitzo.
- Wicked Heart Symbol: His overly-amorous personality is complemented by a white, heart-shaped facial disc characteristic of Barn Owls.
- Willfully Weak: In "Loo Loo Land" he requests I.M.P to serve as his bodyguards, despite being a demon prince even more powerful than Alastor. He does indeed almost get kidnapped several times, but if his frequent flirting with Blitzo (who is the one who pulls his ass out of danger most of the time), as well as him turning a would-be kidnapper to stone with just a gaze at the end of the episode is any indication, he probably just wanted an excuse to see Blitzo again.
"This song is called 'My World is Burning Down Around Me', it's by 'Fuck You Dad'. It's a band."
Voiced by: Barrett Wilbert Weed, Juliana Sada (Child)
Stolas's teenage daughter.
- Affectionate Nickname: Her dad calls her "Via", "my little owlette", and "starfire".
- Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She's very sullen and moody, mostly as a way to attempt to cope with the chaos of her home life.
- Brain Bleach: She calls for this on an Instagram post after witnessing her dad accidentally post a horny picture meant for Blitzo to his public account.
- Bratty Teenage Daughter: She's something of a brat towards Stolas, being highly annoyed with his constant attempts at bonding with her. "Loo Loo Land" reveals that a lot of this stems from her feelings about her parents' deteriorating marriage.
- Broken Bird: Octavia was once an adorable little owl, the deteriorating family and marriage hasn't been kind to her.
- Character Blog: She had an Instagram account called gothchk17. It originally went by another name but after the post in which Stolas shared her celebrating her birthday, it was changed. Unfortunately, the manner the art on Octavia's account was being used and how some people were addressing her were making things uncomfortable for the actual real life people running the various character accounts, in particular, the artist who made the pics. In response, all of Octavia's posts were archived and removed. While the initial explanation given for this decision was made in character via Instagram stories from both Octavia◊ and Stolas◊, the actual people running the accounts apologized for causing a stir and gave proper◊explanations◊ for what happened, further saying that they're trying to keep the accounts fun and urging people not to harass anyone for what transpired.
- Collector of the Strange: Implied, at the end of the "Loo Loo Land", Octavia wants to go to Stylist Occult with Stolas, because they have weird taxidermy there. Stolas' subsequent instagram update shows her with said taxidermy, being quite happy holding it.
- Cool Crown: She wears a small tiara over her beanie.
- Cute Bookworm: In a gothic sense of cute, her Instagram account has books that she's currently reading.
- Cute Owl: She was quite adorable when she was a little girl.
- A Day in the Limelight: Her debut is also her focus episode that deals with her strained familial relationship with Stolas.
- Daddy's Girl: Is shown to be much closer to her father than her mother, even worrying that her father would abandon her more than the actual possible divorce her parents may get.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Appears in a picture in the pilot.
- Emo Teen: Played With. While she is angry with Stolas for cheating on her mother and throwing her home life into disarray and is embarrassed by his dorky personality, under the snarkiness her relationship with her father is actually very strong. In fact, her main fear is that he will run away with Blitzo and abandon her.
- Foil: To Loona. Both are young goth teens with Daddy Issues (particularly, doting yet amazingly embarrassing dads who treat them like they're way younger than they are), but where Octavia is afraid of losing her dad, Loona has a very hard time even admitting she considers Blitzo to be her dad. Octavia is also quiet, moody, and prefers to keep to herself, while Loona is snarky, sassy, and doesn't hesitate to insult anyone who bothers her.
- Furry Reminder: Her breakfast consists of eating "Greed Seed" out of her hand without milk.
- Goth: She predominantly dresses in black, reflecting her moody side, outside of a larger version of the pink, star-covered dress she's worn since being a child.
- Ham and Deadpan Duo:Stolas' Ham to Octavia's deadpan
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Depressed, moody, apathetic, and anti-social due to the state of her home life, but still loves her father underneath it all.
- Like Father, Unlike Son: A father-daughter example. While Stolas is shown to have an affinity for plants (having a garden he tends to himself and hallways full of carnivorous plants), Octavia seems to have a burgeoning fascination with animals, visiting Stylish Occult for their "weird taxidermy" and buying a fauna book there.
- Limited Wardrobe: Played With, her dress under all her goth wear is the exact same style she wore as a little child, pink with stars, just without puffy sleeves.
- Meaningful Name: Octavia is probably named after the minor planet called 598 Octavia.
- Modest Royalty: As Stolas' daughter, she's technically a minor royal of Hell, although she dresses like a typical teenager, tiara aside.
- Nice Hat: Octavia wears a black beanie with a small gold tiara on top.
- Nightmare Fetishist: She has an interest in taxidermy.
- Nostalgia Filter: Octavia initially believes that her parents' marriage was far happier when she was young and that it is falling apart now due to her father's affair with Blitzo, but Stolas implies that there was never any spark to begin with. Justified, as it is also implied they tried to hide it for her sake.
- Ominous Owl: She's an owl demon like her parents, with her face and plumage reminiscent of Sooty Owls like her father.
- Parental Abandonment: Discussed to be her biggest fear, as she is more attached to Stolas than she is to Stella. She worries that her dad would leave her behind, and Stolas assures her that that will never happen.
- Parental Sexuality Squick: Gets annoyed with her dad's absent-minded hitting on Blitzo in front of her. Though this is just as much due to angst over her parents' failing marriage as it is out of disgust at the thought of her father having sex.
- Phoneaholic Teenager: She's shown to be on her phone a lot in her dad's pictures on Instagram.
- Ridiculously Cute Critter: Based on the flashbacks in "Loo Loo Land" and the baby pictures Stolas posts on Instagram, Octavia was an extremely adorable little owlet.
- One of her father's nicknames for her is "Starfire."
- The pink dress she wears with a yellow star pattern looks similar to Steven's shirt.
- Sour Outside, Sad Inside: Though she acts like a stereotypical surly, brooding teenager, she's deeply upset at her parents' failing marriage and fears her dad will abandon her and run away with his new paramour.
- Stepford Snarker: Her method for dealing with her family's difficulties and other problems she dislikes is by adopting a heavily snarky and sarcastic attitude, especially towards her father.
- Strong Family Resemblance: Between her father and mother, Octavia gets most of her looks from the former. Her eyes are much more her mother's though, not least of which the fact that she only has two.
- Symbol Motif Clothing: Stars, which goes with Stolas' being a master of astronomy and one of her nicknames being "starfire".
- Teens Are Short: She's seventeen and only about half the height of her father Stolas, barely reaching above his hip.
- Troubled Teen: Her parents' dysfunctional marriage has done a real number on Octavia, enduring their fighting in the morning as though it was a regular thingnote It probably is.. By the end of "Loo Loo Land", she confesses that she's worried that Stolas's affair would have him leave and she would never see him again.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: She was fairly cute and well-behaved when she was a little girl. Years later, putting up with her parents' rocky relationship soured her into an Emo Teen.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Octavia was deeply afraid of the Loo Loo Land clown Robo Fizz as a child, and that fear doesn't seem to have gone away even at 17, having a clearly negative reaction to the idea of having to see him again.
- Wicked Heart Symbol: Far subtler compared to her father, but she possesses the same heart-shaped facial disc as Stolas. It's clearly visible as a child and when she's just waking up at the start of Episode 2, but made much less obvious due to her bangs and beanie covering the widow's peak that forms the top portion.
"You are a goddamn embarrassment! I'm not spending another moment looking at your pathetic, imp-sucking face!"
Voiced by: Georgina Leahy
Stolas's wife and Octavia's mother. A wealthy socialite and a member of Hell's upper crust, she has little patience for her husband's infidelity.
- Ambiguous Situation: In her first appearance:
- It's unclear if Stella's fury at Stolas' affair with Blitzo is purely due to class snobbery, or if she was already furious by the cheating itself and learning it was with an imp on top of that was further salt in the wound. Episode 5 reveals she's furious about the cheating itself, enough to put a hit on him.
- While she's undeniabley a neglectful parent to, it's unclear if she noticed Octavia walking into the room during her tirade against Stolas and simply didn't care, or did she honestly not notice Octavia and stormed out before she could find out.
- Art Evolution: Starting with the episode "Loo Loo Land", she's been given a different design and color scheme than how she was initially portrayed in the pilot.
- Awful Wedded Life: Based on what Octavia expressed, Stella and Stolas can't stand each other anymore and don't bother hiding it. Stolas later admits to Octavia that their marriage has been falling apart long before he started cheating on her with Blitzo. Given further weight when it's revealed that Stella put out a hit on her husband.
- Bad Boss: During a fight with Stolas, Stella picks up an imp servant by the horns and throws him at her husband, a part of her Fantastic Racism/Classism.
- Bad People Abuse Animals: As opposed to Stolas's Caring Gardener, when Stella learns of Stolas' affair with an imp, she's so furious that she throws several of his carnivorous plants around, causing the pots to shatter and leaving them sorry heaps on the floor.
- Big Bad: Her hiring of Striker to kill Stolas sets her up as one of the major antagonists of the show.
- Cluster F-Bomb: She goes on an expletive-riddled tirade against her husband when she discovers his infidelities.
- Evil Brit: She's a powerful denizen of Hell with a British accent that's only been portrayed in harsh light.
- Fantastic Racism: She's absolutely furious when she discovers that Stolas has been cheating on her with an imp, whom she considers to be inferior beings. Stella goes as far as to sarcastically suggest or accuse him of doing the same with their imp servant. As a whole, her anger towards her husband's infidelity seems to stem as much from class discrimination and her concerns over the family's reputation as him being unfaithful.
- Foil: To Lilith Magne. Both are members of Hell's Aristocracy with an absent presence in their daughter's lives. While Lilith is Happily Married to Lucifer, it is implied that Stolas and Stella never loved each other and are in a Marriage of Convenience. While Charlie is starving for affection from Lilith, Stella and Octavia were never close, with Stella never acknowledging Octavia's presence and Octavia more concerned with her relationship with her father than her mother.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: She's strongly implied to be this. Octavia implies her parents have been fighting for ages despite Stella's recent discovery of Stolas' affair with Blitzo, and Episode 5 implies that she goes into screaming fits so often that her husband and daughter have learned to tune her out, since she loudly orders her husband's death on the phone right in front of them, but they barely notice.
- Hate Sink: Even though most characters in the series are evil to some degree (including the main characters), they still tend to have some sort of likeable trait (such as charisma, intelligence, compassion, or attractiveness)invoked that keeps them sympathetic or entertaining, even if they fill an antagonistic role. Stella has no such qualities, and she's portrayed as wholly unlikeable. She's racist towards imps, neglectful towards her daughter Octavia, and verbally and physically abusive towards her husband Stolas. To the point of even hiring a hitman to murder him, as shown in "The Harvest Moon Festival", not caring how much this will emotionally traumatize her daughter. While she makes it clear that she's furious about the infidelity all by itself, there's the implication that her fury is more about social standing because he's cheating with an imp, and there's evidence that their marriage was rocky even before the cheating ocurred. All of this serves to make the audience sympathize with Stolas and want to see Stella fail.
- It's All About Me: Stella's shown to be a real piece of work. In Episode 2, she's shown dumping all the responsibility of raising Octavia onto Stolas because she didn't want to be bothered. She's shown to be furious with her husband's affair mostly due to the "embarrassment" of him sleeping with an imp. Finally, Episode 5 shows that she's so furious with his affair that she puts a hit on him despite knowing how close he is with her daughter and not caring how this would affect Octavia.
- Jerkass: Oh Boy! Stella is classist, racist towards Imps, and is incredibly temperamental. Even the one point she has is negated by her only really caring about Stolas sleeping with an imp and paying Striker to kill him.
- Jerkass Has a Point: She's a heavily corrupt hell noble and an extremely neglectful parent, with her main problem about Stolas sleeping with Blitzo being that the latter is an imp. But Stolas admits that Stella does have a point that sleeping around with other people, especially those of lower class, would negatively reflect on their whole family. During their private time in Loo Loo Land, Stolas admits that both he and Stella are making things worse for Octavia and that he bears some of the responsibility for that. This keeps the audience sympathy with Stolas, as Stella loses a lot of what makes her point work when she outright tries to murder Stolas by hiring Striker to kill him.
- Knight of Cerebus: An example of an already existing character becoming this over the course of the story. While the reveal she hired Striker to kill her husband is undercut by doing it at the dinner table with Stolas and Octavia right in front of her, the reveal is nonetheless played straight.
- Kicking Ass in All Her Finery: A bit downplayed, but her furious rant at Stolas, with much throwing of plants and servants, is all done in an elegant white dress.
- Light Is Not Good: Has white/pale coloring and attire, but has been portrayed to be neglectful to Octavia and violent when angry. Couple that with the fact that she's a member of demonic royalty, and even attempted mariticide by ordering a hit on her own husband over his affair with Blitzo.
- Marriage of Convenience: Implied, based off of Stolas' disinterest in her. He starts to tell Octavia that he hasn't been happy and that they weren't in love. In fact, during one of their fights, Stella's anger doesn't seem to be because Stolas was cheating on her so much as it was with an imp, and that they did it in Stolas and Stella's bed. When Stolas tries explaining that it was unexpected and that he didn't have time to go to a motel, she expresses further anger, but it is once again more about class standing since he considered going somewhere low class like a plebeian. She ends the argument calling him an embarrassment, showing that all she cares about is how this affects their public standing.
- Meaningful Name: Her name means "star" and her husband's powers are celestial.
- Ominous Owl: Like her husband and daughter she's an owl demon, though a bit less blatantly ominous with the white coloring.
- Parental Neglect: When Octavia cries for her parents as a child, Stella sends Stolas to calm her down to go back to sleep, and though it might have been simply a matter of it being Stolas's turn or him being better at that sort of thing, it bears mentioning that none of the pictures on Octavia's wall feature her mother. Octavia's presence also isn't acknowledged by Stella at all when she's screaming at Stolas and throwing things around. (Though to be fair, it's possible she didn't notice since Octavia entered the room outside Stella's line of sight, and Stolas didn't notice Octavia either until after Stella left the room.)
- Rich Bitch: She's a wealthy, powerful citizen of Hell, and she's not exactly a peach to deal with. The main source of her fury when she discovers her husband's affair isn't so much about the act of cheating itself and more about how he slept with someone of lower status.
- Skewed Priorities: She's angry that Stolas is cheating on her, but she's even more angry that Stolas is cheating on her with an imp. Stella sees imps as lower-class citizens, and her status as a member of the upper crust is what she primarily cares about. Also, infidelity or otherwise, she leaves the raising of their daughter Octavia solely on the shoulders of Stolas, not caring about Octavia's well-being or mental health. Instead, Stella favors advancing her own reputation.
- Socialite: Cultured, wealthy, Pimped-Out Dress, and very status-conscious. In the pilot, she learns of her husband's affair when the imp he slept with literally crashes her garden party. Stolas's Instagram also includes an instance of him attending one of her high society tea parties, and being bored silly. A dark take as her obsession with status is a huge part of her fury at her husband's affair, and is implied to be why she's not close to her daughter.
- The Sociopath: She was already established not to care about her husband or daughter's happiness or well-being whatsoever, but calling for her husbands assassination because of his affair, despite how this will affect Octavia, goes beyond the pale. She even tells Striker to go through whoever he can to get the job done, right in front of her daughter.
- Spot of Tea: She's an Evil Brit and Rich Bitch who is shown having tea on at least two occasions. In the pilot, Blitzo crashes one of her garden parties where she and other high society demon ladies were having tea and cake. Stolas's Instagram also shows him attending one of her high society tea parties, and being bored silly by it.
- Til Murder Do Us Part: Wants to pull this on Stolas for cheating on her, hiring Striker to kill Stolas at the Harvest Moon Festival. His life is only spared because I.M.P. got to Striker before he could pull it off.
- Woman Scorned: She is shown to be extremely violent and loud when discovering that Stolas has been cheating on her with an Imp of all things. So bad, in fact, that she was willing to put out a hit on him.
With the Immediate Murder Professionals held captured by D.H.O.R.K.s, Stolas; one of the Great Princes of Hell steps in to save them.

American adult animated web series
Helluva Boss is an American adult animatedmusicalblack comedyweb series created by Vivienne "VivziePop" Medrano. The show features a different cast of characters and a different storyline than Hazbin Hotel, another show created by Medrano, despite taking place within the same universe. As Medrano described it, while both shows share the same setting, Hazbin Hotel is about redemption and consequences while Helluva Boss follows "characters and societies that already exist in Hell" with the main focus on the interpersonal relationship between characters. The pilot was released on November 25, 2019, while the first episode of the first season, produced by SpindleHorse Toons, was released on October 31, 2020. The first season was released exclusively to Medrano's YouTube channel as she has done for other animations.
The series follows the employees of I.M.P. (Immediate Murder Professionals), an imp-run assassination company in Hell, on their many different jobs. The members of I.M.P. include Blitzo (pronounced "Blitz"), the boss of the venture, along with weapons specialist Moxxie, powerhouse Millie, and receptionist hellhound Loona. With the help of an ancient book obtained from Stolas, a Goetial demon of Hell, they access the human world to complete their assignments.

Season 1 (2020-21)
Production and release
In June 2019, Medrano noted that she was working with Erica Lindbeck, Brock Baker, Brandon Rogers on a "new project", likely referring to Helluva Boss.[b] In August, she posted illustrations of the main cast of characters. The pilot was cast by voice actor Kellen Goff and voice-directed by Medrano and Rick Zieff. The company Horseless Cowboy assisted Medrano with voice work during the first season, with Horvitz and Medrano voice directing. According to Medrano, the influence on developing Helluva Boss was to develop a backup project with the same "demons in Hell" formula and concept under her complete creative control in case anything should happen to delay or cancel Hazbin Hotel. Later, Lucas Bermudez of Screen Rant attributed the success of Hazbin Hotel as the sole reason for Helluva Boss being greenlit. At some point, Rogers asked Jinkx Monsoon to voice a character in Helluva Boss, but Monsoon wanted to "voice stock characters instead" and they did so, voicing various characters during the show's first season.
On November 25, 2019, the pilot was released on Medrano's YouTube channel. Medrano contributed her writing and animation skills for this episode. Writing production for more episodes began in December 2019, with 8 episodes ordered. For these episodes, Sara "Serval" Fisher worked as an animator, Sam Miller as a background designer, and Eddie Mead as a cleanup artist.[c][d] In December 2019, Medrano reported that she and Rogers were writing episode plots for the upcoming season, and were looking for storyboard artists.[e] Episode writing continued into January 2020.[f]
In June 2020, Medrano stated her intent to feature more Black characters in Helluva Boss and Hazbin Hotel in a Tweet where she called on Black animators to share their work with her as a resumé to potentially be hired for work on the series to help "talented people in need of opportunities." A few months later, in August 2020, the recording for the first eight episodes of season 1 was completed, and Lucas Bermudez of ScreenRant predicted that more episodes of Helluva Boss would be released to YouTube "as a web series" because of the COVID-19 pandemic, while also mentioning the news that Hazbin Hotel had been picked up as a series by A24.[g]
In October 2020, the first episode of season 1 was released on Halloween (October 31, 2020).[h] She stated on October 7 that the season would be started in fall 2020, but not all the episodes would be dropped at once, with the first eight episodes serving as the beginning of a "much grander season". On October 31, she said that the "first self-made season of a cartoon has begun." This contrasted with news that the first season would be released in late 2021. In the episode, Rogers and Horvitz return as Blitzo and Moxxie, and while Lindbeck returns as Loona, she is replaced by Vivian Nixon as the voice of Millie. Baker was replaced by Bryce Pinkham as Stolas. Guest stars of the episode include Monsoon, Mara Wilson, and Maxwell Atoms. Wilson voices a former human teacher at Puppies Junior School who commits murder-suicide after discovering that her husband had an affair with a mistress named Martha[i] (who is voiced by Monsoon). Martha is a wife who appears to be "happy and wholesome" on the surface but is homicidal (along with the rest of her family). Additionally, Atoms voices Ralphie, the husband of Martha. Medrano also voiced a "random cashier lady."[j] The same day, Jefferson Friedman released a single from the first episode entitled "Stolas Speaks". On November 15, the official Twitter account for the show stated that the second episode would be "comin' soon." Medrano shared several teasers for the second on her Instagram and Twitter. On December 8, 2020, the official Helluva Boss Twitter account announced that the next episode, titled "Loo Loo Land", would be released the following day. On January 31, 2021, the third episode of the series was released on YouTube following teasers shared on Twitter. However, the episode was age-restricted by YouTube, leading to an outcry from those working on the show.[k] Afterward, Newgrounds expressed interest in hosting the uncensored version of the episode and "promo with a front page banner," something which Medrano supported. On February 1, after the episode's age restriction had been lifted by YouTube, Medrano tweeted that the episode "is viewable again."[l]
In February 2021, Medrano told Insider that Helluva Boss remains independent of Hazbin Hotel, saying she intended to keep it that way as "long as the audience wants to keep seeing it," adding that they have "a plan for where the story goes and ends," noting that having an ending seems "surreal" to her due to the dedicated team working on the show.
On February 26, 2021, a teaser for episode four was released on the official Helluva Boss Twitter account, saying that the episode was "cookin' up" and was the "zaniest" episode yet. An additional teaser shared on the Twitter account stated that episode four would be released on March 14, 2021.
On April 17, 24, and 27, 2021, teasers were shared on the Twitter account, all promising a quick release of episode 5.
On May 5, 2021, the Helluva Boss Twitter account stated that episode 6 would be "the longest of this season", and that the team would need an extra month to produce it. A short clip shared on July 16, 2021 on Twitter stated that it would not be long before the sixth episode released. Two final teasers shared on August 19 and 21, 2021 stated that the episode would be coming out the following weekend.
In October 2021, it was noted that Gavin Arucan, an alumni of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa's Academy of Creative Media, is a storyboarder on the series, and that they had directed various animated short films.

Helluva Boss has various LGBTQ characters, specifically a bisexual demon named Moxxie, and a pansexual demon named Blitzo. Another demon named Stolas is implied to be a member of the LGBTQ community due to his relations with both men and women. Medrano also reacted positively to a fan idea of a sitcom set in an alternative universe where "Blitzo and Stolas are two single dads getting married". Episode 5 introduced the character Sallie May, Millie's sister, who was confirmed on the show's official Twitter account to be transgender.
"Oh Millie" music video
On February 14, 2020, an animated Helluva Boss music video called "Oh Millie" was uploaded on YouTube, centering around Moxxie and Millie's loving marriage. The video features a song written by Parry Gripp, with vocals from Horvitz and Lindbeck.
On September 16, 2020, the French dub of the pilot was released on Medrano's YouTube channel.
Helluva Boss was met with critical acclaim, garnering praise for the animation, characters, voice acting, and humor. In December 2019, in an article about the current state of adult animation, CBR animation critic Reuben Baron, stated that while the pilot episodes of Hazbin Hotel and Helluva Boss have garnered "some warranted criticism" because of their immature and edgy humor, they are still "clear labors of love from an animation standpoint." This contrasted with Tito W. James's assessment on Comicon.com that demons having access to a portal that goes to the human realm "adds a new dynamic and is ripe for narrative potential." Similarly, a reviewer for the Spanish site Cafetoons praised the characters for being introduced in a "very appropriate way" while maintaining the adult comedy and catchy songs. Some even claim that the Helluva Boss pilot was better than the Hazbin Hotel pilot. Other animators praised the show's first episode.[m] Others stated that there are "multiple musical numbers in each episode" like Animaniacs and Family Guy, and although the second episode is more serious than previous episodes, there are "plenty of laughs and raunchy jokes." The same was said about the show's third episode, which one reviewer said had other types of humor like "fourth-wall breaking and blink-and-you-miss-it sight-gags."

Helluva Boss is a spin-off adult animated web series of the Hazbin Hotel franchise. The series takes place within the same universe as Hazbin Hotel but features a new cast of characters, a new tone, and a new story. The pilot was released on November 25, 2019 on Vivziepop’s Official YouTube Channel.
In Hell, Imps are the lowest of the low in society, but what happens when one starts an assassin business? This happens! Follow Blitzo (the 'o' is silent) as he attempts to run a start-up killing company in a very competitive market, along with his weapons specialist, Moxxie, his powerhouse, Millie, and his receptionist Hellhound, Loona. With the help of an ancient book obtained by one of the princes of Hell, Stolas, they manage to make their work possible and together they attempt to survive each other while trying to keep their business afloat.

- Unlike Hazbin Hotel, Helluva Boss is recorded under SAG-AFTRA, allowing more Hollywood voice actors to be cast for the short. The casting for the pilot was done by Kellen Goff who frequently visited animator Ashley Nichols' animation streams. The pilot's recording sessions were done in ensemble at SPG Studios in Los Angeles while the series' recording sessions were done both remotely and at Horseless Cowboy in Hollywood, whom were also in charge of casting for the series. Voice direction was done by Rick Zieff and Vivienne Medrano in the pilot, then by Medrano and Richard Horvitz in the series.
- Alongside some of the recurring Hazbin voice alumni, many actors whom worked with writer Brandon Rogers on his YouTube channel such as Su Jan Chase, as well as actors whom worked in Broadway shows also contributed voices for the series.
- According to Vivziepop in HAZBIN HOTEL Animation Cleanup Pt. 6 Ft. Edward Bosco, Michael Kovach, and Vivziepop, she'd be open for Richard Horvitz to voice in Hazbin, but was discouraged by it since Horvitz is SAG, which was not used in Hazbin. This was later foreshadowed for Helluva Boss as Horvitz was acquired to voice Moxxie in the short.
- Although Helluva Boss still utilizes selective Hazbin animation talent, it also uses several animators who worked on Villainous, a Cartoon Network Latin America original series, most of whom became a part of the project after leaving the series due to controversial reasons. Villainous and Hazbin Hotel are often compared to one another by fans.
- Alan Ituriel, creator of Villainous, is also aware of Hazbin but refuses to do any drawing requests featuring characters from the series due to copyright reasons with the exception of the FAN SERVICE stream due to the more loose rules of that stream.
- Although the show is set in the same universe as Hazbin, open connections between both shows are kept at a minimum due to legal concerns as Hazbin was being pitched through networks at the time before the series was acquired by A24, and Vivziepop intended for the show to be more of a standalone independent web series as the comedy nature of the show is far different compared to the comedy-drama nature of Hazbin.
- Brandon Rogers, who co-wrote and voices in the show, is also known for his Mad Tea Party video on his channel. Coincidentally, a fan of Hazbin made an animatic with selective bits from said audio and Vivienne herself commented on it; which may have been an influence for Rogers' involvement in the project.
- According to Vivziepop, Helluva Boss is more episodic in nature.
- According to Vivziepop, Helluva Boss was produced faster than Hazbin Hotel as she gained enough experience producing Hazbin Hotel to not only assemble a new crew but also make decisions that made production more effective.
- According to Vivziepop, the demon that made a slight cameo in the "Inside of Every Demon is a Rainbow" music video is indeed Blitzo, whose final design was still being worked on when his cameo spot on the video was being worked on.
- According to RebelTaxi, who initially applied for storyboard work on the pilot, all tests for the show require artists to interpret excerpts from Brandon Rogers' work in order to be inquired.
- While Brandon and Richard were personally acquired by Vivziepop and casting director Kellen Goff, Erica Lindbeck and Brock Baker auditioned for their roles.
- Jayden Libran previously worked with Vivziepop and Maxwell Atoms as a puppeteer on Atoms' shelved series Dead Meat.
- Although Vivziepop stated that recording for episodes had been delayed due to the recent COVID pandemic, voice actor Jayden Libran has confirmed that recording officially continued through individual, in-studio sessions, as opposed to group recordings.
- Eight episodes of Helluva Boss are in production thus far.
- Jefferson Friedman, Matt Novak and Christopher French, composers whom are known for their work on DC's Harley Quinn, one of Medrano's favorite shows, also score for the series.
- According to Vivziepop, Brandon and herself initially wrote the episodes simultaneously by meeting once a week during lunch.
- According to Vivziepop, the songs performed in Helluva are more non-diegetic in contrast with Hazbin Hotel's diegetic musical nature, as Helluva is more comedic and wasn't really intended to have musical songs. This is why most of the songs in the series' are either advertising jingles or performed by characters on a venue of sorts.

He did not know what to do, most of all he was afraid that his candid photos would appear somewhere on the Internet, and that acquaintances or even worse. Parents would see them. And he also thought about what these girls would force him to do.How Every Hazbin Hotel Character Perished
Then I was forced to lie down on the couch, and his strong fingers began to massage and crush my stomach, which made me ooze and twitch. Especially when a hand in a rubber glove touched my pubis. But it turned out to be not the worst. The next command horrified me.
First, they lifted me off the couch and told me to stand with my back to the doctor, facing my lover, who was attentively and carnivore watching all.
