“I like you too, little dolly. I'm not sure why I do, but I do.”
Stanley is young, but short and overweight, and mentioned to have his father's receding hairline. He normally wears his security uniform.
When the Minireenas are entering Stanley, he gets sickly grey skin, bloodshot eyes, a bleeding throat, and swollen limbs. He also ends up with a stubble as he does not trust himself with his swollen limbs to shave.
Stanley is lazy in the present. He used to be active, but after a breakup with his girlfriend Amber, he has lost motivation to do anything and is depressed. He is so alone that he talks to the inanimate Minireenas, though he is aware of what he is doing. He doesn't trust doctors because he believes that the doctors killed his dad after he was diagnosed with cancer.
A year and a half before the current events of the story, he signed up for a night guard position in a sketchy underground facility. Also, two weeks before the story takes place, his girlfriend, Amber, breaks up with him due to her not seeing the relationship go anywhere.
In one of the night shifts, he finds a Minireena suddenly appear on his desk. He finds it cute, but he's also confused about how it got there. Stanley decides to leave the doll and takes a nap, but the Minireena seems to disappear by the time he awakens. Soon after, Stanley's arm begins to stiffen and hurt, and his throat feels sore.
Over the next few days, Stanley grows more and more wounded after each encounter. Both of his arms swell, each of his limbs grow stiff, he loses appetite, and his throat bleeds profusely from the inside. Though he is reluctant at first, his family convinces him to go to a nurse. By the end of the story, when Stanley finally figures out what the Minireenas were doing, he tries to escape but a Minireena appears and goes inside of him.
- Stanley seems to represent Michael from Sister Location, in Sister Location, it's shown that Ennard went inside of Michael. The Minireenas going inside of Stanley are a metaphor to that.
