Spiritfarer Wiki

Stanley is a spirit character in Spiritfarer. Unlike other spirits, he is grown in a Garden from the Mysterious Seed, which can be fished out of the water after escorting four spirits to the Everdoor, or purchased from Francis (not the same as the odd seed).


Stanley is very cheerful and will have odd requests compared to many of the other passengers. He will ask you to put odd things in the Foundry, or cook strange items in the Kitchen. He's very curious, and creative and has a passion for putting on plays, drawing and talking to his friend Jacob the beetle.

He enjoys following you around, curious as to what the mighty captain is up to, expressing that he wants to be a captain like yourself when he gets older. He doesn't understand why people are mean sometimes, and can be easily disheartened. However, he always seems to bounce back, and cheer himself up again.

"I remember what my dad used to say. 'Stanley, people are not really mean. Sometimes their intentions just take the wrong path.'" - Stanley

Similar to how you're seen, Stanley seems to hold his father in high regards. He worries that he let his mother down. As though by falling prey to his disease, he disappointed her.

Stanley says that 'it's okay to lose sometimes' in reference to the fact he was unable to wake up. In his deathbed, he claims he was trying to be brave, but he was afraid of what was to come. He wishes to become a superhero so that he wont have to be afraid, and hopes that everything he's going through is just a nightmare. He talked to himself, trying to wake himself up. He tried his hardest but was unable to win.

At the everdoor, before his final moments, he requests you take care of Jacob, his pet beetle. Perking up in his final moments to proudly say he's become the main character of his play and he will put on a good show. In the end, he feels cold, wishing his mom and dad were present, but saying he's thankful that you're here.


Stanley is a wonderful 8-year-old boy who met Stella as he was losing his fight against a fatal disease. Cheerful and whimsical, Stanley is gifted with an analytical mind which allows him to crack one-liners and aphorisms. His wisdom makes full grown adults blush in humility.

As the youngest patient Stella ever had to take care of, Stan left an unforgettable imprint on her. He helped her realize that death can take many forms, and that wisdom and peace of mind can be found in the most unusual patients.[1]

  • Stella rowing towards the Everdoor: "People can be mean. Really mean. Why do they have to be? My mom is mean sometimes. Just like your friends after my play. And it makes me sad when people are mean. And sometimes, I cry when I'm sad. But then I remember. I remember what my dad used to say. "Stanley, people are not really mean." "Sometimes, their intentions just take the wrong path." I don't hate your friends. They're not bad people. That's what my dad would say. They just do bad things sometimes." ... "I never wanted to let Mom down. Or make people not like me. I don't want to do bad things! But, sometimes I do. And I always regret it! I don't think that makes me bad. Do you think my mom will be disappointed in me? Disappointed that I had to go? I tried! I really tried! But I don't think I did it. I like it when I win! But I couldn't this time. I think it's ok. It's ok to lose sometimes. I really think it is." ... "I'm really trying to be brave. But... I'm... I'm really scared. I wish I could be a super hero. And never be afraid. I've hoped so much that this was just a nightmare. If this is a nightmare, why can't I wake up? I was trying. Trying and trying. I wanted to wake up. I always talked to myself. "Stanley wants to wake up!" But it never worked. I never woke up. It all felt so real. And it made me sad. So sad, I couldn't think of anything other than sadness. You take care of Jacob, ok? Jacob is a good beetle. And he was my friend."
