Lana has two paternal half-siblings, Tyler and Kaitlyn Small, who Lana never really got a chance to get close to since they attended boarding school in Metropolis.
Growing up, Lana lived a mile away from the Kent family and was admired from afar by her neighbor Clark Kent for years.
Clark has also described Lana as extremely - sometimes aggressively - sexy.
Throughout the series, it was suggested that she resembled her mother.
Lana wanted to discover if there were possibly aliens living among them, much to the dismay of Clark.
