In those days, I didn't know my ass from my elbow. Luckily, a lot of other people did!
— Candy Suxxx

Candice Shand,[2] better known by her stage name Candy Suxxx, is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as a supporting character in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and mentioned in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. Her name is also seen on posters in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto IV, and Grand Theft Auto V.


3D Universe

Candy Suxxx was born somewhere in the United States and began to work as a porn star at some point prior to 1984.



In 1984, she already had at least one film released and was making a name for herself, having a fan in Sergeant Jerry Martinez who was watching a tape of Candy with a pig and a horse before causing Victor Vance expulsion from the army.


In 1986, Candy based herself out of Vice City, occasionally working with adult film director Steve Scott. She also works as a prostitute or escort, often accompanying Congressman Alex Shrub, including to Juan Cortez' parties, in place of his wife Laura. She first meets Tommy Vercetti when he recruits her, first killing her agent, and then taking her to the InterGlobal Films studios with Mercedes Cortez. During Dildo Dodo, it is revealed that Steve Scott and Candy are sleeping together which is discovered when Scott asks Suxxx to go to his trailer. Vercetti later follows her in a helicopter to a penthouse where she meets with Shrub, allowing Vercetti to take damaging pictures of Shrub, who is revealed to be a cross-dresser and likes to be called Martha, and Suxxx, allowing him to blackmail Shrub into allowing porn films to continue to be distributed in the city. Suxxx meets Vercetti once again when Vercetti gets the idea to use a spotlight display to advertise their latest film.


She continues to work in the porn industry until at least 1992, where posters and a billboard appear in both Los Santos and Las Venturas in San Andreas, with posters featuring Candy also appearing in Liberty City in 1998. Pictures of Candy Suxxx appear in some safehouses in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


On Kent Paul's website, it appears that by 2002, Candy has retired from the porn industry, having her occupations as "Educator and philanthropist". Candy has too regretted her past actions, saying that she didn't "know her ass from her elbow", but that luckily, a lot of other people did.

HD Universe


Candy Suxxx seems to be popular in 2013, as all sorts of media of her can be found, including posters. In fact, she became so popular she even managed to get her own star on the Vinewood Walk of Fame.

In Grand Theft Auto V, if Michael calls Tracey at any point between the missions Fame or Shame and Reuniting the Family, she will refer to herself in her voicemail as Tracey Suxxx, suggesting that she might be influenced by Candy.

A transaction to "CandySuxxx Mobile Internet" may be visible in Franklin's Maze Bank account.[3]

In GTA V and Grand Theft Auto Online, copies of the men's magazine Pussycat can be seen featuring an interview with Candy at 50.

VCBI Crime Tree Record

Woman of extremely ill repute. Possible involvement in blackmailing of politicians. Never seems to get cold.


In the late 1980s, and possibly in the early 1990s, Candy has long red hair, green eyes and buttocks and breasts larger than normal. According to Candy herself and Mercedes Cortez, she has silicone implants and has been operated on. Candy also tends to be scantily-clad almost all the time: she is only dressed in a blue bra with white stars in the center (likely representing the United States flag) covering only her nipples, a red bikini with white stripes, red high heels and a white headband.
