  • Candy
  • Candy is the oldest ranch hand. He lost his right hand in an accident at work.
    • He is the 'swamper' - the man who cleans the bunkhouse. He knows he will be thrown out and put 'on the county' when he is too old to work.
      • Because of this, he accepts what goes on and doesn't challenge anything: he can't afford to lose his job.
        • He has a very old dog, which he has had from a pup. It is his only friend and companion.
          • Carlson insists on shooting the dog because he claims it is too old and ill to be of any use. Candy is devastated.
            • He is lonely and isolated, but makes friends with George and Lennie and offers his compensation money to help them all to buy a ranch together and achieve their dream.
              • When he finds Curley's wife dead, he is furious, as he knows instantly that Lennie was involved and that they have lost their chance of achieving their dream.
