Candy was a mortal woman working as a prostitute in New York City. It was she who entered the Kurgan's room, 315, after his arrival in the down market Ansonia Hotel and announced, "Hi, I'm Candy."  To which he responded; "Of course you are."

She never appeared again, and was only referenced briefly once by the desk clerk in the same hotel, when he suggested she had told him the Kurgan's tastes were 'kinky.'
