Candice Shand, better known by her stage name Candy Suxxx, is a character in Grand Theft Auto series who appears in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Posters and advertisements featuring her appear in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, and she is mentioned in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. She is an educator and philanthropist, and a former porn movie star. She is voiced by Jenna Jameson, a former porn actress and entrepreneur.
Candy Suxxx began to work as a porn star at some point prior to 1984. In 1986 she based herself out of Vice City, occasionally working with porn 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. Vercetti later follows her in a helicopter to a penthouse where she meets with Shrub, allowing Vercetti to take damaging pictures of Shrub, dressed as Martha, and Candy, allowing him to blackmail Shrub into allowing porn films to continue to be distributed in the city. Candy meets Vercetti once again when Vercetti gets the idea to use a spotlight display to advertise their latest movie.
She continues to work in the porn industry through to at least 1992, when posters and a billboard appear in both Los Santos and Las Venturas in San Andreas, whilst posters featuring Candy also appear in Liberty City in 1998. At some point between 1998 and 2002 she became an educator and philanthropist.
