In Fanglorious, she appears at a bar Richie Gecko is also visiting, seemingly coincidentally. They strike up a conversation and she tells him about herself, with Richie seeming interested in her kindness and perceived lack of "darkness". They flirt and leave the bar together. However, when they reach the parking lot, Dakota reveals that she is Earl's daughter and is seeking to avenge him. She then shoots Richie in the chest with a shotgun, sending him flying out of view. Unaware that he is a culebra and cannot be killed by bullets, she is surprised when she goes to check his body and he is nowhere to be found.

In Shady Glen, she and Freddie walk out of the police station and she tells him what she had planned to do with Richie as payback for what he did to her father. She spots Freddie talking to Richie, seeing he's working with the Geckos instead. She goes to alert an officer until said officer gets infected and tries to bite her. She begins helping the injured victims and is attacked by an infected Seth, trying to fight him off and protecting herself from him.

In Dark Side of the Sun, she attends to Freddie and his family when they come into the clinic for medical treatment. She is seen being under the control of Amaru and begins attacking various people until the control is broken.
