(#2) Alex Vause identifies with the class concepts of sexuality and social class. She is the on-and-off lover of Piper Chapman. Vause once convinced Piper to smuggle cash through customs at an airport in Europe, which landed her in prison. Based on her upbringing she is unsure of what she is going to do with her life, because the only life skill she has is moving massive amounts of drugs. Vause and Chapman have an intimate past, that they keep on the low so that Chapman is not judged.
