Dorothy West (ドロシー・ウェスト Doroshi・Uesuto) is a PriPara idol and 8th grader at Paprika Private Academy. She is voiced by Azuki Shibuya, a member of i☆Ris. She is the older twin sister of Leona West and is of Canadian (her father) and Japanese (her mother) heritage. She sometimes mixes English with Japanese when speaking. Her preferred brand is Fortune Party.

She made a cameo debut in Episode 11. In Episode 14, she formed the unit Dressing Pafé with Shion Todo and Leona West.


Dorothy has short, light blue hair with a single braid on the right, while her hair accessories are worn to the left. Her eyes are bright blue. 


She is bright and cheerful while having an Idol type personality. She's prideful and somewhat immature although she can be very serious when needed, as shown during Episode 13. She is also shown to be bossy sometimes and wants things to go her way and has been noted to have a sharp tongue. She is a little flirty at times and sometimes tries to use her charm to win other people over.

Despite that as the series goes on, many of these traits start to dissipate a bit as she gets along with Laala and her friends. It is shown that she does care for her friends and values her friendship with them and if she felt a friend betrayed her or didn't value them as she does them, she would take it rather hard.

Her catchphrase is "Tension Max!"


  • Leona West - They're twin siblings and are very close. Dorothy is highly protective of Leona and thinks very highly of him. Leona in turn looks up to Dorothy and is the anchor that keeps Dorothy grounded.
  • Usagi - After Usagi is ditched by Sophie in order to join SoLaMi♡SMILE, Usagi and Dorothy share vengeful feelings for SoLaMi♡SMILE, so he agrees to make them into the better unit.
  • Shion Todo - The two are very different and as a result often get into disputes with each other. She is somewhat annoyed by Shion since she seems to prefer Leona and her stubbornness, however she does like her and values her friendship with her.
  • Laala Manaka - Dorothy and Laala's relationship seems to be closer in episode 53 where Laala refused to leave Dorothy and insisted on staying with Dorothy even though the situation was very creepy. Laala is also her teammate in the PriPara Police.
  • Nino Nijiiro - Nino looks up to Shion greatly and strive to take over her. She and Leona advice Nino in reaching that goal and works together to find Shion when she was on that journey.
  • Mikan Shiratama - Dorothy's teammate in the PriPara Police.
