Doris is seen as an unusually ugly female. She works at The Poison Apple and has a deep voice. Doris also sports make up similar to that of a drag queen; which includes blue eye-shadow and prominent drawn eyelashes. She wears a crown braid and a purple floor-length dress in all the films she appears in.
Many of the characters find Doris unappealing, with some even doubting her gender, just like the Big Bad Wolf . A few examples saying "You go...girl?" during her singing performance of Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" in Far Far Away Idol. Simon also accuses her of being ugly. In Shrek the Third, Snow White retracts her statement of how many beautiful princesses there were in the group when she looks at Doris, who responds by glaring at her. It is unknown why Doris has a male voice, though it could be to make her more unattractive.
