  • Stirba (pronounced Steer-ba) is a ten-thousand-year-old sorceress and the queen of all werewolves. There is an ancient legend attributed to her which states, For it is written: the inhabitants of the Earth have been made drunk with her blood. And I saw her sent upon a hairy beast and she held forth a golden chalice full of the filthiness of fornications. And upon her forehead was written: "Behold I am the great mother of harlots and all abominations of the Earth".
  • Stirba is the villainess of the 1985, werewolf sequel, Howling 2: Your Sister Is A Werewolf. She was played by Sybil Danning. File:ImagesCA2NCL30.jpg Ben White attends the funeral of his sister, journalist Karen White, the heroine of the previous film. Ben meets both Jenny Templeton, one of Karen's colleagues, and Stefan Crosscoe, a mysterious interloper who tells him Karen was a werewolf. Providing videotaped evidence of the transformation — and turning up to destroy Karen as her undead body rises from the grave — Crosscoe convinces Ben and Jenny to accompany him to Transylvania to battle Stirba, an immortal werewolf queen. Ben dons a Canadian tuxedo to prepare for the battle. Along the way, the trio encounter Mariana, another lusty werewolf siren, and her minion Erle.

  • Stirba (pronounced Steer-ba) is a ten-thousand-year-old sorceress and the queen of all werewolves. There is an ancient legend attributed to her which states, For it is written: the inhabitants of the Earth have been made drunk with her blood. And I saw her sent upon a hairy beast and she held forth a golden chalice full of the filthiness of fornications. And upon her forehead was written: "Behold I am the great mother of harlots and all abominations of the Earth". Stirba maintained her werewolf coven inside of a castle keep in the mountains of Transylvania. Here, she conducted various occult rituals which involved blood sacrifices and orgies. By the 1980s, Stirba was an aged, crone and required the "blood of the lamb" in order to maintain her youth and beauty. Stirba's greatest nemesis was the werewolf hunter Stefan Crosscoe, whom she referred to as her "brother" and her "beloved". Stefan was aware of the power available at Stirba's command, and took measures to combat her werewolf coven whenever possible. Stefan knew that silver would not be enough to kill any werewolf from Stirba's coven. To destroy them once and for all, he required weapons made of titanium. When Stefan and his colleagues came to Transylvania to hunt Stirba down, she used the mystic powers available to her to confound their efforts. She used a siren-like howling call to disrupt the equilibrium of a dwarf hunter named Vasile. The power of her voice was so potent that it literally made Vasile's eyes explode out of his head. When a priest named Father Florin invaded her domain, Stirba made the gargoyle headpiece on her mystic staff come to life and attack him, ultimately killing him. Stefan had his final showdown with Stirba inside her throne room. Stirba tried to entrance Stefan with her powers, but he managed to get in close enough to stab Stirba through the heart with a titanium dagger. Stirba's magic energy exploded out of her and both Stefan and she burst into flames. The two died still struggling to defeat one another.
