Shion Tōdō (東堂シオン Tōdō Shion) is an 8th grader at Paprika Private Academy. She is an idol at PriPara, and is also a cool-type idol. She is voiced by Saki Yamakita, a member of i☆Ris. Her preferred brand is Baby Monster.
Shion has dark purple hair pulled up into a side ponytail on the right and clear amber eyes. In PriPara, she is often depicted with a bat wing hairpiece, and during her Cyalume Change, her hair becomes a much darker shade of purple and even has shades of black in some areas.
She is calm and reassuring on the surface, but her roots have a hot and headstrong personality. She is quite competitive, as she is determined to win at everything. She adores playing Go, and compares everything to the game and learns many things according to the playing board. She's highly perceptive and intelligent with her level being on par with Mirei. She's been noted to be very stubborn, however she's also a very loyal person.
- Dorothy West - Right away they got off to a bad start; as Dorothy is very bold and sharp-tongued and tries to make things go her way which clashes with Shion's more reserved and headstrong personality.Shion even claimed Leona to be better-looking than Dorothy, which angered her adding to their rough start. Regardless they do care for each other and are able to work well together.
- Leona West - At first she is neutral with Leona and takes a liking to his obedience and even complimented him on his looks. However as they spend more time together, Shion begins to genuinely care for both him and his sister. She values his friendship and never wishes to be mean to him in any way.
- Mirei Minami - She initially disliked Mirei for giving her a Warning Ticket, for Breaking Rule #11 of Paprika Private Academy. As a result, she has sworn revenge to humiliate her like she was by defeating her in PriPara. In episode 15, they go up against each other, but for most part seem to be evenly matched. As they start working more together, their dislike for each other dissipates into a friendly rivalry and they are often the ones referred to for the main decisions and opinions.
- Usagi - Usagi is Dressing Pafé's Manager. They have a good relationship, although Shion sometimes questions Usagi's personal attitude.

Tōdō (東堂): The term Tōdō can be split up in two. the tō means east, while the dō means shrine. It can be roughly translated into Eastern Shrine. However, Tōdō is also a common Japanese surname. 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 Dorothy and Leona's last name is West.
Shion (シオン): Is a unisex name, which may be a reference to her cool image, and the Japanese word for the aster flower. Shion is also the root of its derived "Shion-iro" which is a pale purple color or violet (the color of asters). This may refer to her idol type and theme color.
