In Mizumono, Prurnell finally knows the truth that Jack and Will are secretly plotting to bring about Hannibal Lecter's downfall, and she dismisses Jack immediately. Alana Bloom complains to Prurnell about this. Prurnell emotionlessly says she will arrest Will and Jack, angering Alana.
- Prurnell is based on the character of Paul Krendler appearing in Thomas Harris' novels. Bryan Fuller initially wanted to name the character Paula Krendler, but was unable to obtain the rights to The Silence of the Lambs from MGM. As a result, he named the character Kade Prurnell, which is an anagram of 'Paul Krendler'.
