Most psychology departments are filled with personality deficients. Dr. Bloom would be the exception.
|Lecter to Jack|
Alana Bloom is a main character in the television series Hannibal.
is a psychology professor, FBI consultant, and Hannibal Lecter's former student. She is also guest lecturing at Quantico, making her Will's colleague as well as friend and love interest. She initially wants to avoid digging too deep into the subject of Will and his issues, trying to maintain their friendship and instead recommends her former mentor (and lover), Hannibal Lecter as a psychiatrist for Will. Alana is Abigail Hobbs' psychiatrist.
She saw Abel Gideon mainly in court. She also wrote an article about him in a journal of criminal psychology and had two sessions with him two years ago.
She doesn't date, but hopes that someday she will.
She wasn't really a part of books or movies. And, it's Alan Bloom, and not Alana. Bryan Fuller made her female. She's a psychology doctor, who's a specialist in her field, and she also gives guest lectures at the FBI academy. She's very intrigued by Will Graham. I think she wants to be his friend. She wants to get close to him, but she knows how sensitive and fragile he is. She's very concerned that he might get in trouble, and get hurt.
