As befitting prison life, some characters never leave, while many others come and go with varying impacts on the walled-in community. Ruby Rose's Stella Carlin was one such character, who made a big splash and had a significant impact during her time on the show, mainly in season 3 when she was one of the major players. Here are 10 things you need to know about her.

10 A New Life

Stella Carlin was born in Australia, where she was raised initially until her father's career forced her and the parents to move to America. Though it took her a while to adapt to her new life, adapt she did, and when her parents found themselves in a position to return to Australia Stella decided to stay put, and her parents returned home without her.

9 Ruby Rose

Ruby Rose Langenheim, commonly known as Ruby Rose, is an Australian actress whose been working steadily in Hollywood since 2011. She's also worked as a model, a DJ, a VJ (for MTV), a recording artist, a TV presenter, and even a boxer. As well as becoming a celebrated actress she was also the face of Maybelline New York and presented Australia's Next Top Model.

8 Getting Into Panties

In season 3, Taylor Schilling's Piper starts sewing panties for the 'Whispers' business, but she also makes extra panties off the books out of spare materials. She then has the inmates wear them before selling them online to perverts. Stella meets her when they both arrive to sew panties together. Stella then joins Piper's side hustle and the pair become incredibly close, which soon leads to a love affair.

7 Nicknames

Stella Carlin goes by many names during her tenure on the show. The most memorable is 'Justin Bieber,' a running joke comparison both Stella Carlin and Ruby Rose have to deal with. She is also known as '' and 'Tattooed Kangaroo' by some of the less progressive inmates. She also answers to 'Google' and Piper calls her 'Fetish Fangirl.'

6 Personality

Stella is charismatic and has a slick, cynical sense of humor. She is outspoken, outgoing, and fun to be around, making her good with new people and new situations. She is, however, quite self-serving and manipulative under this mask, and will betray anyone to suit her own agenda. When rewatching, her behavior around Piper clearly demonstrates the mind of a sociopath.

5 Trust No Bitch

Stella's poignant storyline was a perfect blend of melodrama and the reality of life and relationships in prison. After she hooks up with Piper, the pair grow closer, then even more so after Alex breaks up with Piper. Their growing friendship is demonstrated by Stella tattooing 'Trust No Bitch' into Piper's arm.

They make a good couple, and Stella's affection seems genuine, but when Stella finds out she's due to be released, she screws Piper over and steals all the proceeds of Piper's illegitimate business to fund her new life on the outside.

4 Batwoman

Ruby Rose's TV career began with one episode of Mr. and Mrs. Murder in 2013 and one episode of  in 2015. She's only played one character on TV since OITNB, but that character has appeared in and Batwoman. She is Batwoman. Her take on the character is badass, despite the show's writers sometimes undermining the female-driven story by having Kate Kane constantly bringing up her gender and comparing women to men.

She hasn't had any major film roles since she took on the mantle in 2018, but she does have two upcoming movies currently in post-production. Her filmography includes huge Hollywood numbers such as and where she squares off against some of the biggest action stars in the world.

3 Lesson Learned

When Piper finds out about Stella's betrayal, shortly before Stella is due to be released, she reigns in her emotions and gets real, playing it cool in front of Stella. Then, two days before Stella's release, Piper hides a bunch of contraband (marijuana, cigarettes, a lighter and a screwdriver) in her bunk and tips off the C.O.s.

Stella watches in horror as her cell is searched and the contraband is unearthed and C.O. Bayley declares Stella "is totally going to Max." Stella catches Piper's eye as she is dragged out, who smirks and brandishes the tattoo/warning Stella gave her.

2 Fate

After Stella's storyline definitively ends in season 3, Piper moves on having learned her lesson. However, it's not the last we see of her. Stella shows up briefly in season 4's sixth episode, hanging with Nicky outside the Maximum Security prison. They discuss a recent sexual encounter they had before a security guard walks by and subtly drops a package of drugs at Stella's feet. Nicky then snaps "I told you to stay the f**k away from me if you're back on that sh**t! You're disgusting!" and storms off.

1 Big Mouth

Stella's brief appearance in season 4, where she seems to be spiraling, is the last fans see of her. Her ultimate fate is unknown (unless she was Kate Kane the whole time training for Herodom Bruce Wayne style...) but she still comes back to haunt Piper. In season 6 when Piper is discussing filling out her commissary with Madeline, Madeline reveals Stella told her everything about Piper's privileged lifestyle on the outside before she was convicted.

Stella also left a lasting impression on Piper for obvious reasons, teaching her the facts of prison life, and by extension, life itself in the process. She remains one of the show's most memorable characters.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed's 10 Best Costumes, Ranked

2008 video game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed featured some amazing designs and costumes, the best of which we'll detail today.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed's 10 Best Costumes, Ranked

Everyone loves a great fill-in-the-blank story when it comes to Star Wars. Well, that's exactly what the 2008 hit video game, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed was. Taking place between Episodes III and IV, The Force Unleashed tells the story of Darth Vader's secret apprentice, Galen Marek aka Starkiller, or "The Secret Apprentice," as he hunts down surviving Jedi while the rebel alliance begins to take shape.

RELATED: Star Wars: 10 Confusing Aspects Of The Timeline, Ranked

Between Marek himself and the rest of the game's incredible roster of both new and iconic characters, there are so many amazing costume designs. Even though the game is over a decade old and the graphics are significantly outdated, let's take a look at 10 of the best costumes from Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

10 Galen Marek Training Gear

Despite all the upgrades that Galen Marek's costume gets throughout the game, his default look is actually one of his best. Referred simply to as his training gear, this costume, plain and simple, gives off the impression of a Sith apprentice.

His training gear is defined by the dark colors of the Sith, while still looking unrefined and as if it was constructed by Marek himself. It's still a solid look considering it's the first outfit you're provided and arguably the most basic of any of his costume designs.

9 Captain Ozzik Sturn

Ozzik Sturn was a deranged Imperial Captain known for his desire to hunt the natives of whatever world he was assigned to. In The Force Unleashed, he's seen overlooking the construction of a massive skyhook, enslaving thousands of Wookies in the process.

Even though the story of how his costume came to be is dark and demented, it's still a pretty awesome look. The standard white Imperial uniform has always been a clean outfit and Sturn's addition of a Wookie pelt looks pretty cool, especially with his ranking plaque still showing. Yes, the captain is a maniacal hunter, but his costume is one of the better variations of an Imperial uniform that you'll see.

8 Drunken Rahm Kota

It's pretty rare to see a Jedi so beaten down and broken that they turn to alcoholism. That's why it was so interesting to see General Rahm Kota after losing his sight in a battle with Starkiller.

Kota's drunken look is exactly what you might expect from a blind, alcoholic Jedi sent into hiding. Still donning the same armor, with his hair tattered and messy and a simple band over his eyes, this look shows just how far Kota has fallen. Even when he's much more put together, his drunken look, for whatever reason, just has more visual appeal.

7 Juno Eclipse

There really isn't much to Juno Eclipse's outfit other than the fact that it's a more relaxed Imperial officer uniform. However, just that fact makes it a ridiculously cool costume. Even before her days in the alliance, when she was still a pilot of the Empire, she was still rocking this same look. Her costume might not compare to the intricately designed ones of the game's other characters, but its uniqueness still makes it pretty awesome.

6 Sith Stalker Armor

The game lets players essentially choose between the light and dark sides at one point. In the scenario that they choose the dark side, Galen Marek fully embraces his role as the Sith lord Starkiller, which comes with this new look known as the "Sith Stalker armor".

This costume, equipped with its own Vader-esque helmet and even some knives for fingers, is such an incredibly unique look for Starkiller. With the helmet, it takes inspiration from the looks of other Sith Lords, especially Starkiller's own master Darth Vader. It has the same dark eeriness that makes the Sith so intimidating.

5 Princess Leia

Before she ever met her brother Luke or Han Solo, Princess Leia Organa was helping build the rebel alliance alongside her adoptive father Bail Organa and Galen Marek. During that time, she was going with more practical outfits than the iconic dress of A New Hope.

Sticking with the iconic white of nearly all her costumes of the original trilogy, Leia's look in The Force Unleashed comes across much more modern than what she changes to in Episode 4. It's an entirely unique costume for Leia that takes plenty of inspiration from her on-screen outfits, even incorporating a hairstyle similar to the one she wore in The Empire Strikes Back.

4 Kento Marek (Rogue Jedi)

At the beginning of the game, Darth Vader is on a mission to eliminate any surviving Jedi of the deadly Order 66. He's sent to the Wookie homeworld of Kashyyyk to hunt down an unnamed Jedi that turns out to be none other than Starkiller's father, Kento Marek. Having presumably lived there in hiding for years, Kento Marek's costume is an incredible blend of traditional Jedi robes and the earthy colors of Kashyyyk. Despite not lasting much time in the game, Kento Marek still plays a fairly significant role and managed to give us a great costume resembling what a Jedi in hiding might look like.

3 Darth Vader

Now, to Darth Vader himself. Over the years, there aren't too many variations of Vader's iconic costume, but there are a few distinguishable elements of his suit in its earliest form.

Just like the Vader costume seen more recently in the Jedi: Fallen Order game, the one of The Force Unleashed is slightly different than the one that appears in the original Star Wars trilogy. The plate above his robotic chest panel looks as if it incorporates silver, and the chain that holds his cape is much more apparent. This look helps differentiate the early days of Vader from just an otherwise head-to-toe black costume.

2 Jedi Adventure Robes

As you might already know, Galen Marek's look changes quite a bit throughout the course of the game. One of the best out of all the different outfits is this costume referred to as his "Jedi Adventure Robes."

All things considered, this outfit is like they brought the classic Assassin's Creed outfit into the Star Wars universe. Like a number of his other outfits, these Jedi Adventure robes feel entirely unique to Marek and helps emphasize that he's chosen the light side over the path of the Sith. It's one of his smoother looks and one that would make any Jedi look great.

1 Temple Exploration Gear

In the old-gen versions of the game, there was an additional mission in which Galen Marek visited the original Jedi Temple to complete his training. This mission comes with its own outfit accurately titled the "Temple Exploration Gear".

It's hard to say what inspired the design for this costume, but the intricate details and patterns of it mixed with the combination of red and white makes the whole thing one of his best looks. It only makes sense that one of the game's coolest missions comes with one of the best outfits for its signature character.
