Dorothy Gale is a young girl from Kansas. She is also the true love of Red Lucas.


Caught in her Kansas farmhouse during a raging cyclone, she is swept away to Oz. Taken in by the protectors of Oz, the sisterhood of witches, she comes to view them as family. One night, she is confronted by Zelena, the Witch of the West, while getting water from a well. Zelena intends to get rid of Dorothy as she believes the girl is destined to usurp her seat in the sisterhood. In defense, Dorothy throws a bucket of water at Zelena; causing the witch to melt. Glinda, the Witch of the South, then appears and offers her to take Zelena's place as the Witch of the West, but Dorothy declines; wishing only to return home. With Glinda's help, she is taken to see the Wizard and given a pair of silver slippers to travel to any world. Dorothy thanks the Wizard and proceeds to click the slippers' heels three times to send herself home. Only after the girl's departure, Glinda discovers too late that Zelena masqueraded as the Wizard in order to usher Dorothy out of Oz.

Years later, Dorothy gets words that Zelena is still alive. She then uses the Silver Slippers and travels back to Oz to face Zelena. She rescues the Scarecrow from her and takes cover somewhere in Oz. With the help of Hades, Zelena tracks Dorothy down and rips the Scarecrow's brain out. She however leaves Dorothy unharmed as she wants all of Oz to witness their Saviour fail in saving them.

Ruby and Mulan later encounter Dorothy during their trip to Oz where she meets them and they witness Zelena's return. Zelena captures Toto in order to get the Silver Slippers from Dorothy. During an attempt to obtain some poppies as part of a knock-out potion, Ruby gave Dorothy the nickname of Kansas then they are chased by Flying Monkeys. When Dorothy goes to confront Zelena alone, she ends up in a Sleeping Curse.
