Stephan's artwork for Power Master: A Strange Journey MV
Stephan Ryan Powers is a descendant of Kyle and Merlina. He was born on November 11, 1993, making him 14 years old during the events of Power Master 1: A Strange Journey. Much of his background, including who his parents were, is a mystery to him, with the only piece of information revealed being his parents died in an explosion and was soon taken to live with his grandfather, the Guardian of Fora.
Stephan is a reckless, but brave, character with a strong sense of justice and friendship.
Power Master 1R Story
The Power Master 1R Story is told from Stephan's perspective. The plot of the story is similar to Power Master 1: A Strange Journey and Power Master: A Strange Journey MV, so Stephan goes through much of the same events, though there are noticeable differences. He starts off his journey with his friend Andrew, who is with Stephan for a majority of the story, and meets several returning and new characters in his adventure.
Stephan also has visions at various points. In Chapter 7: Wandering Sword, after Stephan defeats Eleel, he wakes up in a tall white building. In the building's elevator, he finds a man that looks similar to him, though older and with black hair, and then the building soon explodes, waking Stephan up and finding himself back in the Town of Iora. In Chapter 10: The Failing Flirter, Stephan faints during a fight with a giant bat and wakes up in a castle. There, he finds he is married to Jennifer and has a son named Migue. Hamilton and Helen are also mentioned, with their daughter, Denise, and he seems to have shared this vision with Helen after she fainted in Chapter 8: Town of Trash. In Chapter 20: Rock in the Water, Stephan falls unconscious during the battle with the giant boulder and wakes up in a field. Fully armored figured flew above and landed next to him, the man in black armor reaching out to Stephan, saying "Welcome back."
In Chapter 22: Zone of Trials, Stephan returns to the tall white building. He runs back to the elevator to see who he assumes is his father once more, but is instead met with three children. Another person comes up and attacks Stephan, defending the children. After defeating the man, Stephan finds himself on the top of Bora Building, facing off against Jennifer and Andrew. After defeating them, Stephan finds himself on a battle court, facing a man in red armor.
Power Master 1: A Strange Journey
In Power Master 1: A Strange Journey, Stephan is the canonical main character of the game, starting off in the Town of Fora. After battling Silver Knight, he learns that Exitilus has returned, and so he sets out to follow in his ancestors' footsteps.
If the player chooses to start off as anyone other than Stephan, he will fill the role that was supposed to be taken by the selected player. This gives Stephan the most amount of possible roles (4) than anyone else (2).
Stephan is a well-rounded character. He is able to use any weapon type and shields, but is unable to use whips or any magic (aside from fused weapons). He does not truly excel in any parameter. Using Triple Attack, he can attack the most number of times out of any character and he can bring down his opponent's Attack and Defense using Weapon Break and Armor Break respectively.
Stephan learns these skills at the following levels.
|30||Ultimate Slash, Pounding Blow, Thousand Arrows, Special Shield|

Power Master: A Strange Journey MV
Please do not add false or speculative information to the section and please site your sources.
Additionally, once the game is released, this section may need reorganizing.
Stephan appears in the remake of A Strange Journey, again as a player character, able to be assigned to any of these four roles: "Hero", "Warrior", "Digger", and "Cousin". Upon being recruited, he will be assigned their respective class ("Legendary Descendant", "Warrior of Bora", "Digger from Uora", and "Kind Cousin"). As one of the new mechanics in Power Master: A Strange Journey MV, Stephan can no longer learn skills by leveling up. His design has changed slightly, but he overall has the same base appearance as last time.
As the main character, Stephan lives with his grandfather, the Guardian of Fora, in the Town of Fora. He is good friends with Andrew, Andrea, the town's Pam and Violet, and their sister, Jessica. Stephan is told to gather the Fora Gem from Fora Temple to help prepare for the thousandth year of peace ceremony, and ends up encountering Silver Knight. After a battle, Stephan is told of Exitilus's return, and must set out to gather the other Gems before Exitilus does.
Stephan has a 25% increase to the Defense stat, which is mainly meant to help differentiate him from the others that can take his role. He can equip Swords, Shields, Wands, and male-oriented clothing.
As an enemy
If the player chooses to make Stephan the Warrior at the start of Power Master 1: A Strange Journey, he can fought in his house in the Town of Bora if the player says they are looking for stuff. Stephan has high Health, Agility, and Defense, and uses his sword. He can attack with Lightning and can Defend. He is strong against swords, but is weak to lances and Weapon and Shield Breaker parameters. When defeated, he drops a Heal-All Health Vial and reluctantly agrees to help the player.
- 0.1.0 demo - Stephan is capable of wielding lances, whips, and axes, in addition to the weapons and armor he used in the original game. Stephan also gains additional expressions. The player starts as Stephan, though they can chose to swap with another character by talking to them.
- 0.2.0 demo - Stephan only has access to swords, shields, and wands, but can use other weapons by wearing certain armor. He also loses his expressions, making way to armor-based portraits in later demos.
Stephan was created similar to the "generic heroes" seen in most anime and games. Stephan has gone through several different designs, but he has mostly retained his look through each of them.
