Blitzo also has a tricky relationship with Stolas, a demon prince. Stolas has a book called a grimoire, which I.M.P. uses to do their job, because it allows them to access the human world.

- Stolas (voiced by Bryce Pinkham): A demon prince. He owns a book called a grimoire, which can create a portal to the human world. He is in love with Blitzo, and does not understand why Blitzo does not love him back. He has a daughter named Octavia, and an ex-wife named Stella. Stella wants to murder Stolas because he cheated on her with Blitzo.
- Striker (voiced by Edward Bosco): An imp assassin. He tries to kill Blitzo and Stolas many times, but fails.
- Fizzarolli (voiced by Alex Brightman): A famous imp performer, who works at a club called Ozzie's. He is dating Asmodeus.
