A 19th-century lion naval captain who crashed his clipper ship a hundred years ago onto what is now the island where Louie built his nightclub on and whose ghost haunts when it is magically resurrected from during a casual night of carousing. Frightened off the island and back to Cape Suzette, both Baloo and Louie tell about the haunting to an overtired Rebecca who disbelieves them. Returning back with trepidation, the place is deserted until his apparition appears before them in solid form and is highly enamoured by the businesswoman. With his handsome looks and gentlemanly manners, Rebecca becomes smitten with him, but in reality he is a snobbish, judgemental and bothersome poltergeist who prevents them from leaving the island, so Baloo and Louie try to exorcise him out of the nightclub, if rather noisily. Seducing her under the moonlight with his charms during a walk on the island, the lonely ghost wants to take Rebecca away from the real world which she falls for in her tired state of mind. Finding a Book of Spells in the ruins underneath Louie's Place that will get rid of Stansbury forever and return everything back to normal, Baloo and Louie go through a series of the Captain's tricks to maintain the fantasy with Rebecca and keep them at bay which they partially succeed. After the pilot gently convinces his tearful employer that this isn't the life for her by connecting her responsibilities with Higher for Hire and her daughter Molly, Rebecca reluctantly finishes off the spell that sends the ghostly captain back into the spirit world, promising to wait for her in the afterlife. To console her broken heart, Louie gives Rebecca the painting of Stansbury that she hangs prominently on the wall in her bedroom.
Role in the series
The Villain League plans to gain control over Stansbury's ghost in order to provide themselves with another soldier for their world-spanning army of darkness. Indeed, the very reason his ghost was brought back from the afterlife was to provide a suitable power source for Shadow Fagin in order to become Nightmare Phoenix Fagin!
