Brandy Epps is an inmate at Litchfield Penitentiary, introduced in Season Four as a primary member of the white pride movement initiated by Piper Chapman. She is portrayed by Asia Kate Dillon.


Brandy is a white supremacist. She is outspoken on her prejudices against the women of color in the prison, and typically has no qualms with turning to violence when disrespected. She also is proudly referring to herself as a Nazi, unlike fellow supremacist Sankey. Brandy seems to be the most educated of all the supremacists. Despite her extreme beliefs, she's sometimes shown calmly conversing and enjoying it with some of the inmates of color.  

Physical AppearanceEdit

Brandy has a shaved head and a tattoo on the back of her neck of the Confederate flag and another that says "Einfühlung" which is German for empathy. She is never shown wearing make up.


Before LitchfieldEdit

Brandy reveals she used to work as a coffee barista, all the while poisoning Jews and African Americans; the implied reason she was incarcerated.

Season FourEdit

Part of the riot at the end of Season 4 and took part in the unintended White Power Group that formed out of a hate for Dominicans, Blacks, and Asians during a meeting with Piper Chapman and other female inmates.

Season Five Edit

She hid in one of the dorms with Skinhead Helen and a few others until armed officers engaged them in a fight, but she was taken along with the other inmates outside to wait with the other captured inmates to board a bus to an unknown location.




Several other inmates of colour and Jews
