Alana is a character from The Little Mermaid and its related media. She is one of the daughters of King Triton and Queen Athena and the Aunt of Ariel's daughter Melody.


She has a pink tail, violet eyes and black hair, which is styled in what might be called "seaweed rag curls". She wears a small pink tiara on her head as well as a purple seashell bra. Her tiara is drawn differently between the films and the animated series.

In extension media released after the first film, Alana is the sixth daughter of King Triton. However, in the prequel, she is the second oldest, after Attina. Bonus features on the prequel film's DVD state that Alana is seen as "glamourous", and that she makes her own beauty products. In the books, she is shy and likes to spend time tending her sea garden and has a pet sea turtle. In the TV series she has a friend named Pearl who is a party girl.


The Little Mermaid

Alana is introduced during the "Daughters of Triton" sequence, where she is the sixth one to introduce herself. Afterwards, she appears mostly in group shots with her other sisters.

The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning

In the prequel film, Alana is first shown as a young mermaid, relaxing with her father and mother in a cove. After Queen Athena is killed by pirates, Alana is raised strictly by the governess to her and her sisters. Later, she learns of an underground music club (Triton had forbidden music after Athena's death) from Ariel. The next night, Alana and her sisters sneak out and go to the club. However, their governess catches them, and they are punished by Triton and forced to remain in the palace. At the end of the film, Alana is seen partying in the club along with her sisters.


  • Her name is the feminine form of Alan, after Alan Menken.
  • Curiously, neither she nor Arista appear in The Little Mermaid 2 at Melody's christening.
  • Her hairstyle is inspired by Drizella Tremaine's hair.
