Not to be confused with Candide.

Candice was the seductive "secretary" of Rupert Thorne.

""Wild""
— Candice in Two-Face Part 1

History

Candice was less conspicuous than most of Thorne's other employees, and so she was perfect to gather information about Harvey Dent. She quickly learned of his mental issues, and stole his file from his psychiatrist’s office.


With the file, Thorne tried to force Dent to cooperate. He sent his thugs to take him to an abandoned factory, where Thorne and Candice were waiting. After Dent’s alternate personality emerged and he attacked Thorne, Batman showed up. Candice was content to stand by, and watch all the men in the room fight. All went well until a stray bullet caused an explosion, mutilating half of Dent’s upper body and

As Two-Face rose to power, Candice kept a close tab on his doings, much of which were attacks on Thorne's legal and illegal businesses. She and Frankie respectively impersonated a detective and police officer to convince Grace Lamont to tell them where he was. She quickly gained the despondent woman's trust, and gave her a transmitter she could activate when Harvey tried to contact her. The bet paid off; they traced the couple to the Wild Deuce club.

As the two adversaries fought their war against each other and Batman, Candice again chose a role on the sidelines. She tried to sneak up on Two-Face to hit him in the head with a flowerpot, but Grace attacked her. She was knocked into a wall, and arrested when the police showed up.

Bane meets Candice.

Candice served as Thorne's liaison with Bane when her employer hired the Cuban powerhouse. She had figured out by now she was too smart to be an underling, and tried to seduce Bane into killing her boss. Bane played along, taking Candice into his plan to kill Batman.

Candice was considerably less patient than her new "boyfriend". Bane had already captured Robin, and Candice was eager to unmask him. Bane wanted to keep him around as bait for Batman. He waited for him at an old cargo ship, where he threatened to drown Robin. Batman showed up, and after he had freed Robin, took on Bane. Robin took on Candice in the water. Robin gains the upper hand until she managed to escape, and returned to Thorne's office.

Candice did not even have time to dry up; Batman came straight to Thorne as well. He delivered Bane to him, and gave him an audio tape. He had recorded Candice's attempt to seduce Bane and plot to kill Thorne. As Batman left, Candice was last seen recoiling as Thorne shouted at her.

Personality

Confident and cunning, Candice was the right-hand henchwoman of Rupert Thorne, and the most effective out of all of his goons. Although she spent much of her time at Thorne’s shoulder, she just as frequently went out to obtain information and make deals on her boss’ behalf. A skilled manipulator, Candice was easily able to pose as a detective and trick Harvey Dent’s girlfriend into revealing Dent’s location, and was not above using her looks to get results. However, she was also not afraid to get her hands dirty, and literally leaped into a physical confrontation with Robin, intending to kill the young man.

Although she gave the illusion of loyalty to Thorne, Candice was power-hungry and opportunistic: After hiring Bane, she plotted behind Rupert’s back to kill him and help Bane ascend to power in Gotham, with her at his side.
