Because Oz flew off without Dorothy in his hot air balloon, Dorothy became very upset and made her anxiety even worse, causing her conscious to be the antagonist. She is the protagonist, too, because she is the one undergoing the main change, which in this case is leaving without the hot air balloon and clicking her heels together.
