Leona West (レオナ・ウェスト Reona・Uesuto) is a PriPara idol and 8th grader at Paprika Private Academy. He is voiced by Yuki Wakai, a member of i☆Ris. He is the younger twin brother of Dorothy West and is of Canadian (his father) and Japanese (his mother) descent. His favorite saying is "If Dorothy ○○, then me too...". His preferred brand is Fortune Party.
Leona has short, curly, light-pink hair, with a braid worn on the left side of his head and a slender body. His eyes are dark pink, and he has a beauty mark under his left eye.
PersonalityLeona is quite shy and would wither away if not for Dorothy. He often follows whatever Dorothy does as an example, such as pretending to faint if she would, or dislike someone if she does. This changes as the season continues and he starts to gain more confidence to do more on his own without Dorothy. He also becomes slightly more outgoing. He has a relaxing atmosphere about him and can easily calm others, most notably young children. This is emphasized by his catchphrase "(Tension) relax!". Leona is also shown to be quite feminine.
- Dorothy West - They're twin siblings and are very close, and Leona often follows his sister's example. Otherwise, he serves as the voice of reason between Dorothy and Shion. He is the more friendly of the two, as shown when he snaps Friend Tickets with Laala and Dorothy refuses.
- 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 Dressing Pafé into the better unit.
- Shion Todo - He is the neutral barrier between his sister and Shion from fighting. Although he is friendly with his sister, he is equally as friendly to Shion. Shion thinks that he is beautiful and values his friendship.
- Sophie Hojo - Sophie and Leona are similar in the sense that they initially couldn't do anything on their own. Because of this, Sophie offered him advice on how to change himself and the two became friends. Sophie also became the first person Leona traded Friends Tickets with outside of Dorothy and Shion.

Leona: Meaning "Lion", which is ironic since he is quite shy, coming from the word "Leon". Its origin is Latin.
West: West is a direction on a map. This can be considered a pun since Laala's last name means center, Mirei's last name means south, Sophie's last name means "Northern line" (north) and Shion's last name means "Eastern shrine" (east).

- Unlike Dorothy, as seen in Episode 17, Leona isn't easily frightened.

- Before Episode 18, Leona's real Cyalume Change Aura did not appear.
