Special power[edit | edit source]

Profile[edit | edit source]

Personality[edit | edit source]

Candy is a talkative, active girl who is strong in her studies. She is very ambitious and close with her classmates; however, she doubts her own capabilities as a result of her parents' high expectations, and often seeks approval from her peers.[1]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Candy's hair is spiky and brown, parted in the middle with a ponytail on the back of her head. Her eyes are aquamarine in color, which matches most of her outfit. For a torso, Candy wears a blue strapless bodice with frills below her collarbone. Two buckles on her hips are connected to a flowing turquoise dress, layered underneath a smaller pink veil. The welts of her socks are patterned in the same way as her skirt, and she wears a pair of grey slip-ons. She is equipped with blue cloth gloves that are fastened at the wrist with brass rings.[1]

Biography[edit | edit source]

Early life[edit | edit source]

When Candy was young, a horde of trolls settled near her hometown and would sometimes come to terrorize the townsfolk. It came to an end when she was 7, as a group of wizards were dispatched from the capital, and spent three days exiling the trolls. Ever since then, it has been Candy's dream to become a powerful sorceress herself. At the age of 10, she transferred to Will-o'-Wisp Academy to pursue her goals. There, she stumbled upon Ganache Nighthawk, who bore a striking resemblance to a magician that helped suppress the trolls. It was love at first sight for Candy, but Ganache did not reciprocate those feelings. Candy's academic record would soon stand above most others at Will-o'-Wisp, and although she was not as magically skilled as Ganache or Blueberry, she still greatly excelled in her schoolwork.

Magical Vacation[edit | edit source]

Expand Icon.png This section is incomplete and requires expansion.

On the day of the Valencia Beach Seaside School, Candy and her friends joined the protagonist, Kirsche, Sesame, and Pistachio in the academy's meditation room. Everyone made goals for themselves to fulfill over the summer, to which Candy admitted to wanting to reinvent herself, and also confess her love to a boy. Once the protagonist gathered their classmates and boarded the magic bus, Miss Madeleine noticed that Ganache was absent, to which Olive volunteered to look for him. Candy attempted to follow, but Madeleine ordered her to stay while Olive left the campus, bringing him back moments later.

That night at Valencia Beach, Candy remained by the cottages, admitting to the protagonist that the ocean made her sad. She could accompany them and Sesame on an adventure in the nearby pirate's cave, returning to the class's campfire at nightfall. Candy invited Ganache to speak with her in private, wherein she gave him a late birthday present. Their conversation ended on a sour note, with Ganache leaving before Candy was able to confess her love. Suddenly, swarms of enigmas began storming the beach and abducting the students, warping them all to another plane of existence called the Light Realm. Candy too would be caught amidst the attack, and Ganache watched as two enigmas spirited her away right in front of him.

Struggling for survival in the Light Realm, Candy would reconvene with Olive, Cider, and Cabernet at Rekarc Quarry and take refuge in Ufot Village. Ganache accompanied them after following the protagonist's party through Wetsomus Ruins. As the party journeyed to Ufot Village, they spotted Candy and her group further up the mountain path. However, a zaf lopik enigma leapt in and warped them to the Dark Realm, as Equillekrew demanded the students be brought there. As the warp was occurring, Ganache rushed in and allowed himself to be caught in it, pulling him into the Dark Realm alongside Candy and the others.

Return to the Kingdom[edit | edit source]

As she had predicted, Candy joined Ganache in his uprising against Kovomaka Kingdom, creating the Biscotti Sect with many other enigma-possessed magicians. Once they had seized control of the Kingdom, Ganache left for Chiboust Castle to free his sister. Both of them abandoned magic, and brought forth an era of peace that would last for 200 years. Candy quit using magic too, turning to philosophy, history, and politics instead. She eventually became a history lecturer at Will-o'-Wisp. One day, she received the protagonist's magic notebook in the mail, which journaled everything they had learned on the students' adventure. It contained heaps of information, including the dodo curse and how to undo enigma fusion. The notebook was kept at the academy, where it became an essential source of knowledge for wizards all over Kovomaka Kingdom.[1]
