Biography Edit

Before Litchfield Edit

Alana's father shot himself when she was young, and two weeks later her mother overdosed. She found both bodies.

She states that she has an oversized uvula, which causes her to snore very loudly.

Season Four Edit

Dwight and Hapakuka are introduced to Red and Piper as the new inmates. Dwight is stationed above Red, which she shows no annoyance to. At night, when Alana is asleep, Red finds out Dwight snores ridiculously. Red confronts Dwight on it, and she reveals she has a large uvula, Piper mentions how Larry Bloom used to snore, and she would place books under the mattress to angle his head, but Piper says that they didn't work. Dwight snores even still despite the chat. Red attaches cans to her back so she cannot sleep on her back causing her to snore, unfortunately, Dwight tries to roll over and finds it uncomfortable, and rolls of the bed and smacks her face on the ground, breaking her nose.

Season Five Edit

Dwight is seen inside the rec room with Lee Dixon and other inmates as the riot begins, showing concern. ("Riot FOMO")

Dwight breaks her nose two more times over the course of Season Five. She pulls open a door, which hits her in the face. While talking to Stratman through the door of the porta-potty, he slams the plastic of the door into her face because she won't stop talking and offers to sing to him while he's trapped inside by inmates. ("Tied to the Tracks")

During the raid on the prison, Dwight is found by the guards hiding alongside two other inmates in the time machine in Laundry. She reveals that she often goes to sleep and snores when she gets nervous.("Storm-y Weather")

Season Six Edit

Alana has been moved to Litchfield Max following the events of Season 5.

In 'Chocolate Chip Nookie', Carol Denning plays a prank on Alana, telling her she had overheard the guards talking about her getting released early for good behaviour. Alana excitedly runs to tell her grandfather, thanking Carol as she goes.

Later, Red tells Alana that Carol was lying, and Alana shows a rare moment of anger, calling Carol a bitch.
