Star King is a gift-giving figure associated with Candlenights, filling essentially the same role that Santa Claus does for Christmas. Little is known about the folklore surrounding this figure, as he was first recorded in Episode 335, released December 2016, and most of what we do know was pretty much just the Brothers throwing out whatever came to mind and seeing what sticks. Also, given the context of the question that gave birth to him, a lot of said folklore was invented solely to spare any Candlenights-celebrating children embarrassment at the hands of their peers.
All the same, all the following has at least been proposed as Candlenights canon:
- Every year, Santa Claus and the Star King have a fight to the death. Every year, Star King wins, meaning that Santa's mantle is either passed down to a new person a la the Tim Allen film The Santa Clause, or he regenerates through other, unknown means.
- Star King is literally lord and sovereign over multiple stars.
- Unlike Santa, who visits every good child that celebrates Christmas, Star King only visits the best child in any given year.
Star King's name was originally derived from a mispronunciation of "stocking."
