Candy Dawn is a hooker and an associate of the Punchinello crime family.



Candy is a hooker with a various number of clients in the Punchinello crime family. She has her own apartment in the same hotel that Rico Muerte and the Finito brothers stay in. She has tapes of some of her clients in her room and a diary where she likes to record events in.


Candy is involved with members of the Punchinello crime family, and is caught giving Rico Muerte oral sex when Max Payne appears in the scene. She attacks Max along with Rico and several more armed thugs. During the gunfight, however, she dies.

Max also finds that some of her "secret tapes" are of Alfred Woden (whom she refers to as "one eyed Alfred" in her diary). Max decides to use this against Woden if he were to go back on his offer to "Make all the charges go away."
