Heroic King Of Dyperia
Real Name: Stefen, Of The House Of Miro
King Stefen is the ruler of the seaside Kingdom Of Dyperia. He is noted as being Prince Adam's uncle and the father of Prince Dal. He had long running war with the cave-dwelling Torcs, that neighbor his kingdom. When Prince Dal was sent to Eternos, for his protection, Orko tries to impress Dal, by revealing a artifact called the "Star Crystal", that was supposed to make the person, who holds it, invincible. In truth, Orko used his magic to fool him into believing that the stone was for real, when it really had no magical powers. Prince Dal takes the crystal to his father in Dyperia, to use against his enemy. When King Stefan and Prince Dal learn the truth, He-Man steps in and helps drive off the Torcs.
Trivia (Clawful94): King Stefen is a Filmation character, only. He does not appear or mentioned in any other MOTU source. It is not stated in the cartoon that he is Randor's younger or older brother. It is not clear if Prince Jeremy is also his son, being that Stefen was the only sibling announced in the Filmation series. When King Stefan is presented with the Star Crystal, it seams that he is somewhat unfamilier with Eternos, just that he has heard that Eternos holds some strong magic. King Stefen was voiced by John Erwin.
