On the day of his daughter Aurora's baptism, after Maleficent curses the princess, the Three Good Fairies convince her to hide the princess to prevent the curse from coming true. For years, he waited to see his daughter again. On the scheduled day, his daughter pricked herself on the spindle of a spinning wheel and fell into a deep sleep, which led the Three Fairies to put the entire kingdom to sleep, including him, until they could fix it. Once Prince Phillip managed to wake up Aurora, everyone woke up too, and Stefan was later able to happily reunite with his daughter.
