Cands is an infamous New World pirate who allied himself with Whitebeard. He only appears in the manga.


Cands is a man with an abnormally long neck, and wears a giraffe styled hood around his neck. He wears a black coat with the sleeves rolled up, and light colored pants with boots. He also has a light colored long sleeved shirt under his coat, with the sleeves rolled up above the elbows. He was seen carrying a spear, and wearing a tricorne in the manga. In his original sketch, he wore a normal cap instead of a tricorne. He strongly resembles a giraffe.
