Dora is a Latina. Early concepts of Dora had her as a blond girl of European ancestry. The character was originally based on a niece, Lilli, of Rick Velleu, one of the creators of the show. He is friendly and enthusiastic, and usually wears nothing but his beloved red bootshence his name. He is gray with a yellow stomach.
His parents look similar, with variations in eyes, height, clothing, and fur. Boots is present with Dora on most of her adventures, and he helps her solve clues and puzzles. He also loves baseball and is on Dora's team. He enjoys riding Rojo the fire truck. Boots is athletic and energetic. He performs a series of acrobatic flipssomersaultsand cartwheels along the way to their destination.
His light weight also makes him easy to carry, even for Dora. Without guidance from Dora, the viewer, or another character, Boots is quick to take his own, often dangerous or dead-ended, route. Dora often acts as the voice of reason. Boots "loves" many things. In one episode, he would say many times "I love riddles. Riddles'" or "I love nutsI love chocolateI love my balland I love, love, love Most importantly, however, Boots loves Dora and Dora loves him back, as expressed verbally and physically in numerous episodes.

Boots' vocabulary is limited but steadily increasing. Dora teaches him Spanish through memorable songs and phrases.

Boots was voiced by Harrison Chad in the original English version and then, from season five onwards, by Regan Mizrahi.
Swiper the Fox Swiper is a sneaky fox in a blue mask and gloveswho is the antagonist of the TV series and appears in nearly every episode. He is voiced by Marc Weiner. As his name implies, Swiper steals or attempts to steal key items that help Dora on her adventures. Clever as he is, Swiper never manages to take Dora completely by surprise; an ominous "whisking" sound is always audible just prior to his appearances.

To prevent Swiper from success, Dora must repeat the phrase, "Swiper, no swiping! Usually she prevails, and Swiper slinks away, snapping his fingers and saying, "Oh, mannn!
He then gloats, "You're too late! Swiper's motive for theft is patently childish; he never seems actually to want the object he takes, since he almost immediately throws it away to hide it from Dora prompting her to ask the audience to help her find it. Until recently, it was unclear if he swipes merely for the joy of swipingor from a desire to annoy and frustrate Dora. Compounding the confusion is the fact that, given the right reason, for example, that the item in question is a present for Dora's puppyhe'll return items he has taken, no matter how much effort he went through to get them.
It is also shown that he rarely knows the full importance of what he's taken; for example, he had no idea the aforementioned gift was for Dora's puppy. In the episode "Dora Saves the Mermaids", he revealed that he "liked swiping. Swiper is very fast and agile, and something of a master of disguise.

He seems to have a great deal of technical knowledge, as he's built a variety of vehicles and gadgets including a remote-controlled robot butterfly to help him swipe things. Most of the time, however, he simply relies on his natural stalking abilities sometimes with the aid of a costume to sneak up on Dora. In the early episodes he often "hid" by curling up into a ball, which neither Dora nor Boots ever recognized as Swiper; he apparently doesn't do this anymore.
He has only been seen once without his mask, when the robot butterfly he built to swipe from Dora and Boots in the episode "Dora's Got a Puppy" apparently malfunctioned; after they stopped it, it swiped his mask and gloves and kept them from him for a few humorous seconds.
None of Swiper's relatives has ever been seen, but his grandmother has been mentioned in two episodes: In one episode it was revealed that Swiper has a soft spot for puppies, and in another that he likes Cowboy cookies. In a few episodes, he expresses feelings of joy with a fox-like cry of, "Yip-yip-yippee! In the episode "Swiper the Explorer," Swiper helps Dora on her quest to help Baby Fox find its mommy, and Swiper carries the baby fox almost all through the episode.
Also in this episode, it's revealed that Swiper doesn't speak Spanishand wishes that he did. The interaction between Dora and the antagonistic fox also reveals the kindness and grace of Dora's character. In one episode, "Dora's Dance to the Rescue," Swiper took pity on a Dancing Elf who was caught in a magic bottle, similar to a genie.
The elf tricked the sympathetic Swiper into removing the bottle's cork, thereby releasing the elf and his talking cane. Unfortunately, the wily fox was thereby entrapped in his place.
