Stalyan is Eugene's ex-fiancee and partner-in-crime.
Stalyan is the daughter of the Baron, a well known and feared criminal kingpin and resides in the city of Vardaros alongside him at his castle. Stalyan follows in her father's footsteps and becomes a well known thief herself and later at some point met the thieves, Flynn Rider and Lance Strongbow when they allied with her father. Stalyan and Flynn formed a partnership and began working together as partners in crime, becoming close eventually forming a romantic relationship together and agreeing to be married. However, as time goes by, Flynn felt tired of Stalyan's self-interests; as it was told that Stalyan intended to steal a sultan's jewels from the town of Picosta and make a profit out of it; even when Flynn pointed out how stupid that sounded, Stalyan forced him to tag along with it, claiming that she knows what's best for Flynn. Fed up with Stalyan's controlling behavior, Flynn furiously called off the engagement by leaving her at the altar.
Ever since, Stalyan vowed revenge on Flynn (who reverts back to his old name Eugene), promising to break a lot of his bones if she ever saw him again; even the Baron is outraged and promised to make Eugene pay for supposedly breaking his daughter's heart.

Role in the series
In Big Brothers of Corona, Lance mentions Eugene stealing her from a baron.
In Beyond the Corona Walls, Stalyan is reunited with Eugene and Lance when they are captured and taken to her father when they recently arrive in the city of Vardaros. Stalyan reveals upon their reunion that although her original wish was to torment Eugene if she ever saw him again, Stalyan reveals instead that despite their past, she still believes they are meant to be together, both as partners in crime and in life. Still seeing that Stalyan is still domineering in nature, Eugene initially refuses to marry Stalyan, but the Baron threatens Lance's life by having him bitten by a venomous Kai spider, forcing Eugene to agree to marry Stalyan in order to acquire the antidote to save Lance.
Stalyan and Eugene return to the city and wait backstage as the Baron announces their engagement and upcoming wedding to the citizens of Vardaros. Eugene attempts to convince Stalyan not to go through with the plot to no avail and confesses he is in love with the Coronan princess Rapunzel. Surprisingly, Stalyan is already well aware of Eugene's love for Rapunzel, including their history when he rescued the lost princess from her tower held by Mother Gothel. However, Stalyan manipulates Eugene into doubting his relationship with Rapunzel, questioning why the princess would give up her freedom and marry him after spending the bulk of her life confined in a tower. Shortly after, Stalyan goes on stage to make her appearance and soon after the Baron introduces Eugene as her fiancé, shocking Rapunzel, watching from the crowd.
Rapunzel approaches the stage, demanding an explanation, of which Stalyan provides by claiming that Eugene has joined them. Rapunzel refuses to believe Stalyan's claims, but Eugene — seeing Lance growing weaker — is unable to reveal the truth to Rapunzel. Eugene soon leaves alongside Stalyan, the Baron and Anthony the Weasel, leaving behind a heartbroken Rapunzel. Back at the Baron's castle, Stalyan visits Eugene in his prison cell. Eugene once again pleads for Stalyan to call off the wedding and give him the antidote to save Lance's life. Stalyan ignores Eugene's pleas and instead reminisces about their shared past, revealing that she genuinely believes they belong together.
The wedding ceremony begins as Stalyan is walked down the aisle by her father. The Baron begins to officiate the wedding, but is interrupted when Rapunzel reveals herself during the ceremony and declares her love to Eugene. Rapunzel touches the black rocks, intending to create a shockwave by releasing their power, but is surprised when nothing happens, confusing Stalyan and the Baron, witnessing Rapunzel's attempts. A fight soon ensues between the Baron's henchmen and Rapunzel, Cassandra, Hoot Foot and Maximus. Stalyan attempts to escape with a captive Eugene, but Rapunzel stops her, engaging in a tug-of-war with Eugene at the center tied in hair. Pascal creates a distraction by startling Stalyan, freeing Eugene from her grasp. Eventually, the Baron and his henchman are defeated and are forced to flee. Stalyan leaves carrying her injured father, but not before furiously informing Eugene and Rapunzel that she will someday settle things between them once and for all.
