Dottie is a recurring character introduced in the second season of Stranger Things. Before Eleven, she was the last one to meet Kali and her friends and join them in seeking revenge for the injustice brought upon her.
Dottie had escaped from a psychiatric hospital before meeting Kali, Mick, Funshine, and Axel. She joined their gang, becoming their newest member. The gang would pursue and kill the people from their pasts who had wronged them.
On October 29, 1984, the gang had traveled to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After they successfully killed one of their targets, they were quickly pursued by the police. After entering a tunnel, Kali used her abilities to manipulate an officer into believing the tunnel had collapsed, allowing them to get away by causing a massive car crash. The gang then fled to Chicago, residing in an abandoned warehouse.
When Eleven came to the warehouse in search of Kali, Dottie told her to leave. When Eleven revealed the image of Kali she possessed, Dottie and the rest of the gang watched as Axel threatened her with a knife, demanding to know where she acquired it. He stopped when Kali made him see an illusion of a horde of spiders crawling on his arm. Dottie then handed the image over to Kali.
After speaking with Eleven, Kali decided that they should use Eleven’s powers to pursue another target. While Dottie supported this decision, Axel and Mick believed this was a bad idea, as they still needed to lay low from their recent crime in Pittsburgh. However, Kali didn’t listen to them.
The following day, Kali introduced Eleven to the gang, telling her of their goal in getting revenge on the people who had hurt them. Later, Dottie and the gang watched as Kali taught Eleven how to channel her anger in order to make her powers strong enough to move a train car. When she succeeded, Dottie, Mick, and Funshine cheered while Axel appeared somewhat apprehensive. They then took Eleven to a room where she identified an image of Ray Carroll as the one who had hurt her mother.
After the gang gave Eleven a makeover, they went to a gas station to stock up on supplies. While the clerk was distracted by one of Kali’s allusions, the gang began robbing the store. When the clerk discovered what they were doing, he pulled out a gun and threatened to shoot Kali. After Eleven rendered the clerk unconscious by throwing him against a wall, the gang escaped in their van.
When they arrived at Ray’s residence, Kali and Eleven interrogated him while Dottie and Axel began robbing the house. Upon entering a room, they discovered Ray’s daughters, who were calling the police. As the police began to arrive, the gang fled back to the warehouse.
However, the police soon found them, surrounding the warehouse. Kali was able to get the gang to their van using her abilities. It was then that Eleven decided to leave them in order to save her friends in Hawkins. As Eleven ran away, the gang managed to evade the police.
