First Appearance: Gambit I#1 (December, 1993);

candra-external-gamiii12-cost-upper.jpgPowers/Abilities: Candra possesses great telekinetic powers, levitating herself or several others, manipulating and animating inanimate objects (pending pipes, etc.), forming protective shields, and projecting blunt bursts of force from her head or hands. One of the more powerful feats she accomplished was bringing down the entire side of a brick-walled building.

    An External, Candra possessed an extended lifespan. She did not age, and though she could be injured, perhaps severely, she would not die unless her heart was destroyed or removed.

    For a period of time, Candra tried to further protect herself from death by transferring the essence of her heart into a gem, the Heart of Candra, which she hid in a guarded fortress. 

    Even when her body was destoyed following the destruction of the Heart of Candra, she could eventually reform her body, although she required additional influxes of energies to fully restore herself.

    She can grant power -- tapping into any mutagenic potential and bringing it out immediately -- and longevity to others, the latter through an Elixir of Life divided into three components.

    She can also remove powers, although that is more difficult for her.

    Under certain circumstances (whether this is when her own powers are at their peak or via aided by other beings or technology), Candra has teleported great distances.

    She has some knowledge of folk medicine and sorcery.

    Among the spells she has used is a cloaking spell to allow herself and at least one other to monitor others without being discovered.

    She has also briefly possessed and controlled others (even Cyclops, who was trained in forming psi-shields by Charles Xavier); as this was not something she performed regularly, it may be that she was aided by other beings (possibly "Jamil"), technology, energies, etc.

    As Red Death, she could absorb energies of death (presumably some form of necromancy), to restore severe damage to her body, even swiftly regenerating lost limbs. 

        She also manipulated her own cloak, presumably telekinetically, using it to skewer and bind others.

History

(X-Men II#60 (fb) - BTS) <Per Candra> - As those of her race could be killed by running a blade through the heart in order to absorb the mystic energy therein, when she had forsaken the other Externals, she needed to protect herself from their wrath. She therefore transferred her heart-essence into a gem she kept hidden.

(X-Men II#61 (fb) - BTS) <A millennium ago> - Candra's (or perhaps another External's) heart was stolen by an unidentified mortal. This somehow cost Candra dearly.

(Gambit III#12 (fb) - BTS) - Learning of the mysterious "Old Kingdom" (a society pre-dating Atlantis) and knowing of Clan LeBeau of the New Orleans' Thieves Guild's obsessive zealotry towards recovering the Old Kingdom's ancient lore, Candra conceived a mutually beneficial opportunity: The Thieves Guild would receive long-life so as to extend their ability to divine and resurrece the Old Kingdom; and the Assassins Guild would receive power enough to protect her should any of her immortal brethren seek to harm her.

(Gambit I#1 (fb) - BTS / Gambit I#2 (fb) - BTS / Gambit I#3 (fb) - BTS) <Centuries ago> - Candra made an arrangement with the Thieves Guild and Assassins Guild of New Orleans, where she gave the Elixir of Life to the former (granting them extended lifespans in exchange for a large accumulation of wealth they would accumulate) and power to the latter.

(Gambit III#10 (fb)) - Candra apparently had her Tithe Collector -- whom either possessed his own powers or was empowered by her -- collect the monetary dowries for the pact every 7 years.

(Gambit I#3 (fb) - BTS) - With both Guilds at her service, Candra used each to keep the other in check in a never-ending rivalry.

(Gambit III#6 (fb) - BTS) <1887> - In Leipzig, Germany, Candra contended with the young Jean-Luc LeBeau (Gambit's father) for the power gem known as the Momentary Princess, but it apparently vanished into the future before either could grab it.

candra-external-gamiii12-uncostumed.jpg(Gambit III#12 (fb) - BTS) - Candra's Tithe Collector told her that the Thieves Guild would be punished for their failure to retrieve the Momentary Princess for her. 

(Gambit III#12 (fb) - BTS) - Candra withheld the Elixir of Life from the Thieves Guild, who aged twice as quickly in the next four years. 

(Gambit III#12 (fb) - BTS) <Ten months before the main part of the story in 1891> - Candra held hostage Jean-Luc LeBeau and Belize Marceaux for 10 months; the Tithe Collector provided guidance in how the Thieves Guild might balance their account with Candra.

(Gambit III#12 (fb) - BTS) - Candra's hostages didn't mind their imprisonment that much, as their chores included bathing her; however, she did sometimes take her frustrations out on the pair.

(Gambit III#12 - BTS) - Gambit (Remy LeBeau) traveled back in time (alongside the metamorphic Courier/Jacob Gavin, Jr.) to 1891 in order to restore the Guilds' pacts (and because there was photo evidence of him having been there at his current age).candra-external-gamiii12-cost-knees-up.jpg

(Gambit III#12) <1891> - At the United Service Club at Waterloo Place, London, England, Candra confronted and chided the Tithe Collector for failure to punish the Thieves Guild for their failure by now. Having only projected a version of himself to that site, the Tithe Collector revealed that he was currently at Belgrave Square, awaiting Jacques LeBeau (Gambit's grandfather) and Clan LeBeay of his Thieves Guild springing into action.  

(Gambit III#12 - BTS) - The Tithe Collector expressed Candra's displeasure with their efforts thus far, and he sent them to steal from Nathaniel Essex (later Sinister); in the process Jacques and his Guild members encountered a time-traveling Gambit (Jacques' grandson).

(Gambit III#12 (fb) - BTS) - Candra took out her anger with Jacques LeBeau on Jean-Luc and Belize, hooking them up to a stretching rack/wheel device.

(Gambit III#12) - Candra released the boys and apologized for taking her frustrations on them, and Jean-Luc mocked the immature relationship between her and the Guilds. She argued that her methods and means were rather peaceful in comparison to other Externals, after which she explained the origins of the pact. When Belize argued that he and Jean-Luc did not even believe in mysticism, Candra advised him that they would have to not only learn to believe in it, but to understand it and become it, for the very fate of the world one day. 

    Jacques then arrived and offered Candra a folder of information taken from Essex's office as this might cover her interest in learning about "tomorrow" and thus restore the pacts, but Candra -- appreciating that the information displayed the gestational chambers of the immortal En Sabah Nur, whom she was not prepared to confront -- angrily dismissed him, telekinetically binding Jacques and his men in metal pipes. 

    Candra then reactivated her stretching device on Jean-Luc and Belize, but the time-displaced Gambit arrived, broke the device, freed Jacques and those bound with him, knocked Candra down, and stole her energy-discharging staff, which he aimed at her head. Familiar with Candra from his past experiences, he explained how they would meet in her future and his past, but that her boredom would grow to nasty proportions. Gambit was surprised as she showed legitimate concern for the lives of everyone on Earth via the current issues. 

    Gambit then offered to collect the infromation on En Sabah Nur from Essex so that she would not need to risk herself, in exchange for restoring the pact to Clan LeBeau; but Jacques refused to depend on the "White Devil" (an alias of Gambit) and revealed he knew how to trace Essex to New York City. Candra freed Belize and told Jacques she would free Jean-Luc if he successfully recovered the desired information from Essex, but Gambit grabbed Jean-Luc and fled.

    Admitting her attaction to Gambit, Candra anxiously awaited to see whether Gambit or Jacques would win the race to recover the secrets of tomorrow.

(Gambit III#13 - BTS) - Gambit and the Thieves Guild encountered Essex (aka Nathan Milbury), now known as Sinister.

candra-external-gam14(Gambit III#14 - BTS) - Two weeks later, Jacques LeBeau and the Thieves Guild encountered Ozymandias in a subterranean chamber beneath Egypt's pyramids. He recognized they were agents of Candra seeking information on the Old Kingdom.

(Gambit III#14) - As Ozymandias showed Jacques tracts relating to the Old Kingdom, Candra arrived, thanked Clan LeBeau for leading her there, and announced her intent to use the information to remake the world into a paradise under her control, as well as to protect the world from En Sabah Nur's survival of the fittest doctrine.

(Gambit III#14 (fb) - BTS) - Candra imprisoned Ozymandias in the chamber's stone walls, after which Jacques and the rest of Clan LeBeau translated the relevent text.

(Gambit III#14) - Jacques subsequently told Candra how the language of the Old Kingdom would allow her to fold space through magic. As she impatiently urged his haste, annoyed with his caution and fanatacism, they were interrupted by the arrival of Gambit and Sinister via a vehicle that traveled between space from Sinister's New York base. The force released from the space warp's opening and closure caused Candra to briefly fear they had awakened En Sabah Nur, until Gambit exited the craft and kicked her into the wall. Knowing Gambit's interest in the youth, Candra fired a telekinetic blast beneath the ledge upon which Jean-Luc and Belize were standing; Gambit rescued the boys, although Ozymandias lamented how she was destroying the work of centuries.

    Having gained metamorphic powers by injecting him with material taken from the metamorph Courier, Sinister then wrapped around and poured himself inside Candra, overwhelming her. When she begged for mercy, he released her, but then revealed the other Externals -- Burke, Gideon, Absalom, Saul, and Nicodemis -- whom had learned of her forbidden entry into En Sabah Nur's fortress. As she sought to explain, Gambit and Clan LeBeau departed with Sinister in his craft.

(Gambit I#4 (fb) - BTS) - Jean-Luc LeBeau occassionally witnessed Thieves Guild members having a negative reaction to the Elixir of Life, where they were in agony and aged rapidly, requiring ever more of the Elixir to sustain their existence. Unwilling to deprive the rest of the Guild to save the few who reacted thusly, the Guild let these members die, though Jean-Luc, at least, considered it the Guild's greatest sin. 
    Guild members were aware of the risk and accepted it before partaking of the Elixir.
candra-external-gamiii10-full

(Gambit III#10 (fb)) <1943> - Candra allied with Baron Strucker in order to obtain the Momentary Princess, a powerful gem that appeared in Leipzig.

(Gambit III#10 (fb)) <1943> - In Leipzig, Germany, Candra used a cloaking spell to allow herself to spy in Jean-Luc LeBeau and the Howling Commandos (Izzy Cohen, "Dum Dum" Dugan, Nick Fury, Gabe Jones, Dino Manelli, Percy Pinkerton, "Rebel" Ralston); they hoped LeBeau would lead them to the spot in which the Momentary Princess would appear.

    After Jean-Luc located and claimed the gem, and defeated the attacking Strucker, Candra confronted Jean-Luc; she offered to absolve him of the pact -- granting him both the elixirs of power and immortality with no tithe collection or obligation to her-- if he gave her the gem. 

    Arriving and arguing that doing that would be giving it to Hitler, the Howlers fired on Candra, who deflected their bullets and grenades telekinetically; and Jean-Luc, appreciating the situation, let go of the Momentary Princess, allowing it to vanish into the future again. 

    Candra furiously fired energy blasts from her hands at the Howlers, but the distraction of the gem's disappearances allowed one of their grenades to get past her defenses, and the explosion stunned her sufficiently for the Howlers and Jena-Luc to escape.

candra-external-gamiii6-full(Gambit III#6 (fb) - BTS) - A 15 year old Remy LeBeau led his nearly 13 year old cousin Etienne Marceaux to invade and steal a chalice from Candra's palace in Granada, Spain. 

    After the Herd, agents of the Pig, with whom she was dealing, interrupted the pair, Candra instructed the Herd to capture the boys.

(Gambit III#6 (fb)) - Candra arrived shortly after the Herd surrounded young Remy and Etienne, and she taunted Gambit with an encounter his his future and her past; confused, he nonetheless tried to charm her. Finding him adorable even at this young age, she let the Herd do whatever they needed. 

    After the Herd struck down the boys, Candra explained that they had been participating in a ridiculous family ceremony. 

(Gambit III#6 (fb) - BTS) - Candra agreed to purchase the Herd, which one of them reported back to the Pig.

(X-Men II#60 (fb) - BTS) - While under the tutelage of the Egyptian "King of Thieves," Achmed el-Gibar, the young Ororo Munroe heard rumors of the great treasure (the Heart of Candra) within a mansion just beyond Kasime, near Cairo.

(X-Men II#60 (fb) - BTS) - Descending silently down a rope, Ororo stole the gem, but before she reached the top again, a white glow suddenly emanated from the empty gem-case. 

    Lightning-like bolts erupted from the floor, cutting through, killing, and nearly incinerating the guards. 

    Ororo fled the palace and watched from a safe distance as the palace and its retaining hillside were obliterated by the energies. She then found that the "ruby" she had stolen was no longer glowing. candra-external-xmii60-heart-guardsdie.jpg

    Ororo showed the gem to Achmed, who told her he would keep this "heart of an eternal darkness" until she was old enough to understand what she had done; he hoped the bright lady would forgive her for the brashness of her youth.

(X-Men II#61 (fb) - BTS) - Candra was severely pained and found herself vulnerable for the first time in centuries.

(X-Men II#60 (fb) - BTS) - Candra thought her Heart-gem was lost forever.

(X-Men II#60 (fb) - BTS) - In time, Ororo learned how dangerous the gem could be.

(X-Men II#60 (fb) - BTS) - Achmed el-Gibar suspected that to destroy Candra's heart-gem might cause a catastrophic release of energy like that which occurred when Ororo stole the gem. 

(X-Men II#60 (fb) - BTS) - When Ororo departed Egypt, Achmed entrusted the gem to her, bidding her to keep the stone from those who would exploits its mysteries. 

(Gambit I#3 (fb) - BTS) <"A long time" before the main story> - Candra spent some business and romantic time with Remy LeBeau in Paris.

(X-Men Unlimited I#7 (fb) - BTS) - Candra and Remy traveled through Europe, looking for adventure and danger; Remy eventually realized Candra didn't care about anybody but her self, and he left her unexpectedly.

(Gambit I#1 (fb) - BTS) - Over her many years, Candra saw many new lights added to the Parisian skyline.

(Gambit I#1) - As the Tithing time approached, Candra, apparently having had some romance with fellow External Gideon, assured him that everything was going as planned. He noted that he wished for something exciting in his long life, and she noted that it may occur one day soon...

(Gambit I#2 - BTS) - As the Tithe Collector delivered the first of three vials/components of the Elixir of Life to members of the ten families of the Thieves Guild (led by Jean-Luc LeBeau), Gambit interrupted, demanding the Elixir of Life be given to his comatose wife, Bella Donna Boudreaux. The Tithe Collector departed, withholding the other two components of the Elixir until the conflict could be resolved.

(Gambit I#3 (fb) - BTS) - Candra instructed the Tithe Collector to allow the Assassins Guild to defeat him.

(Gambit I#2 - BTS) - The Tithe Collector was ambushed by Julien Boudreaux -- alongside rogue members of the Thieves and Assassins Guild -- who claimed a second component of the Elixir.

    The wounded Tithe Collector returned to Candra, informing her of these occurrences.

(Gambit I#2) - As Gideon departed to attend to his own affairs, Candra -- standing over the wounded Tithe Collector -- told Gideon not to worry, as everything would be resolved as planned.

candra-external-gami3-profile(Gambit I#3 (fb) - BTS) - Candra had Jean-Luc LeBeau brought to Paris.candra-external-gami4-upper

(Gambit I#3 - BTS) - Gambit entered Paris' club Petite Chou, asking for information on Candra; this led a number of her bouncers to bring him down to the garage to take him out, but he defeated them with his powers. The Tithe Collector then appeared and rendered him unconscious with an energy blast blast as he told him "Candra will see you now."

    The Collector had Gambit brought up to a hotel room. As Gambit awakened, a fight broke out between himself and the Tithe Collector, wanting repayment for his treatment in New Orleans.

(Gambit I#3) - Candra broke up the fight, telling the Tithe Collector she needed this creature alive...for now. After their reintroduction, she kissed Gambit passionately before blasting him away telekinetically, telling him he shouldn't have left, but certainly should never have returned. He noted that she was still as fiery as when he left, and even more beautiful; but she told him his Cajun charm would no longer get him anywhere with her.

(Gambit I#3 - BTS) - Meanwhile, apparently via an involuntary reflex, Bella Donna touched Rogue's hand, allowing Rogue access to Bella Donna's memories.

    Noting a desire to shake things up and to have a new organization to help her toward future aspirations, Candra had an unconscious and bound Jean-Luc LeBeau brought into the room; she offered Gambit the vials of the Elixir (and presumably herself) to do with as he wished if he would kill Jean-Luc. Gambit immediately refused, but they were then interrupted by Julien Boudreaux and his Assassins Guild allies seeking the elixir. Candra instructed the Tithe Collector to "destroy this rabble," but Julien still sidestepped him and set his allies on the Collector while he rushed and latched his hands around Candra's neck. Being choked by Julien prevented Candra from using her powers, but as he threatened to kill her and all of the Externals "for what you've turned me into," Gambit struck Julien down.

    As Gambit and Julien battled fiercely, with Julien gravely injuring Jean-Luc, but a recovered Candra blasted Julien out the window and into the night sky. Candra then
noted she didn't just let them kill each other both because she didn't want stains on her Parisian carpet and because she wouldn't have him dying when she owed him her life. He took a passionate kiss and considered them even.

(Gambit I#3 (fb) - BTS) - Unbeknownst to Candra, Gambit slipped the third vial/component of elixir from her cleavage and claimed it.

(Gambit I#3) - Candra told Gambit to get out of her sight before she came to her senses and had him killed; taking Jean-Luc with him, Gambit headed back to New Orleans.

    Instructing the Tithe Collector to have her place cleaned up, Candra considered the evening a smashing success, and that Julien -- whom she knew would survive -- would be the wild card to keep the Externals on their toes and end the boredom of her extended life. As she prepared to consolidate her power base anew, she was furious to realize Gambit had stolen the vial.

    Candra then instructed the Tithe Collector to go to New Orleans and spread the word to both Guilds that Gambit had betrayed them all. She further wanted Gambit's family, Rogue, and Bella Donna all dead.

(Gambit I#4 (fb) - BTS) - The Tithe Collector gathered members of both the Thieves and Assassins Guilds to oppose Gambit.

(Gambit I#4 - BTS) - Gambit claimed the Elixir of Life component held by Julien; learning how Julien had been affected by the Elixir, Gambit brought him to Jean-Luc.

(Gambit I#4 - BTS) - The Tithe Collector confronted Gambit and Jean-Luc, noting that only the spilling of Gambit's blood would assuage Candra and restore the sacred pact. Gambit fled, but when he returned to Bella Donna, he found the Tithe Collector had already subdued Rogue and held both Rogue and Bella Donna captive. Gambit detonated the Tithe Collector's coat, after which Julien's efforts to claim the Elixir shattered the mixed vial. After Marius Boudreaux arrived -- alongside multiple Assassins Guild members -- and subdued Julien, Gambit noted that as he had failed to save Bella Donna, he would let the Assassins kill him.

(Gambit I#4 - BTS) - Candra then appeared, seeking to reclaim the Guilds, but Gambit urged the members to live free of her yoke and showed them Julien as the future that awaited them under Candra. She told the Assassins to kill both Gambit and all of the Thieves, and a new pact would be forged wherein they gained both power and life. Marius, however, refused, and the Guilds members departed. Candra noted how both she and Gambit were thieves, but he told her that she robbed people of their lives, while he lived his own; noting the times they could have had in Paris, Candra vanished in a flash of energy.candra-external-xmu7-psi-shield.jpg

candra-external-xmu7-full(X-Men Unlimited I#7 (fb) - BTS) - Candra empowered the man Bond to act as her agent.

(X-Men II#61 (fb) - BTS) - Knowing that Candra was seeking a young mutant of great power, the aging Achmed el-Gibar sought to protect the mutant Karima -- who could give form and function to desires pulled from the minds of others -- and had her project Candra's desire to find her Heart-gem onto Jamil, who was formed by Karima from her own desire for companionship.

(X-Men Unlimited I#7 (fb) - BTS) - Candra took an interest in the young Egyptian latent mutant Jamil, who trained under el-Gibar. She felt only she could exploit his power.

(X-Men Unlimited I#7 (fb) - BTS) - With el-Gibar dying, Candra headed to Cairo and instructed Bond to prepare Jamil for her return.

(X-Men Unlimited I#7 (fb) - BTS) - Bond approached Jamil, telling him of a benefactress from Paris.

(X-Men Unlimited I#7 (fb) - BTS) - El-Gibar warned Jamil to stay away from "the witch from Paris," but this angered Jamil and made him feel like he was being treated as a child.

(X-Men Unlimited I#7) - Arriving via private jet on Cairo's air field, Candra questioned Bond on whether el-Gibar still lived and whether Jamil had been prepared for her arrival. Bond noted that Jamil retained his loyalty to el-Gibar, but he could be Candra's if Bond were to elminate el-Gibar. Candra angrily levitated Bond in the air, warning that she could take away his powers and his life with a thought and telling him not to presume for her, and that killing el-Gibar would make him a martyr to Jamil. Entering her limousine, she instructed Bond to bring Jamil to her so she could make him hers, body and soul.

    After Jamil had been humiliated while trying to prevent Storm (along with Gambit and Jean Grey) from visiting el-Gibar, Candra met with Jamil along with Bond. Telling Jamil they wished to be his friend and that he deserved much more than she had, she gave him clothing to match his abilities and power. She further told him his talents and true powers were wasted where he was, and that she could teach him to tap into the power he might not otherwise know he possessed; she then asked him to take her to el-Gibar so she could discuss the future of the street urchins, and Jamil specifically.

    With Jamil, Candra had Bond smash through the door to el-Gibar's chambers, offering to lead the street urchins after el-Gibar's death, but el-Gibar told her he had no business with her and repeatedly ordered her out. When Gambit told Candra to leave, Bond engaged him, but when Storm confronted Candra, she peacefully departed, noting that Jamil came with her willingly and that Jamil would eventually lead the pack of thieves under her guidance.


(X-Men Unlimited I#7 - BTS) - Telling Storm that Jamil was special like her and had been like a son to him until Candra had seduced him. El-Gibar asked Storm to save Jamil from Candra and that they must have a leader in his place. The three X-Men then pressured locals for information on how to find Candra and/or Jamil, leading them to a confrontation with Jamil and a group of street assassins; though they defeated the assassins, Jamil refused to return with them, even striking Karima when she asked him to return with them.

(X-Men Unlimited I#7) - Gambit asked Jamil if he had learned that behavior from Candra and warned that Candra was going to use him and then chew him up and spit him out when she was done. Candra then knocked Gambit down with a telekinetic blast, after which Bond punched Jean in the back of the head, and Candra collapsed a brick building's wall on the X-Men. As Candra mused she had not gotten to say goodbye to Gambit, she advised Bond to take Karima with them.

(X-Men Unlimited I#7 - BTS) - Jean Grey telekinetically shielded herself and her allies from the bricks, and Storm blasted a pathway out.

(X-Men Unlimited I#7) - Within her palatial estate on the outskirts of Cairo, Candra, noting she wished a demonstration of Jamil's loyalty to her, instructed him to kill Karima. As he raised his blade, the X-Men arrived, and Storm challenged Candra to single combat, with Candra relinquishing all claim on Jamil if Storm was victorious. Candra accepted, and the two faced off in the desert, in the shadow of the pyramids, and Storm eventually battered through Candra's defenses via a combination of wind and lightning, and punched her out.

(X-Men Unlimited I#7 - BTS) - As Bond battled and was eventually defeated by Gambit, Candra built a concentration of psionic energy (apparently into her hand).

(X-Men Unlimited I#7) - As Candra announced her plans to decapitate Storm with the blast, Karima hurled a dagger into Candra's hand, diffusing the energy, and then threatened to strike her in the heart with another dagger. Jamil nonetheless chose to say with Candra, seeking the wealth and power she offered. Candra smiled then as she departed with Jamil and Bond.

candra-external-rogue4-full(
Rogue I#1) - Attending the funeral of Marius Boudreaux alongside the Tithe Collector, Candra's presence was questioned by Bella Donna. Candra noted she was paying her respects, acknowledged Bella Donna as the Assassin Guild's new leader, and offered to renegotiate the old pacts; when Bella Donna considered this, Candra advised her to contact her via "the usual means" so they could discuss all Gambit and Rogue had taken from her.

(Rogue I#1 (fb) - BTS) - Bella Donna arranged for the kidnapping of Cody Robbins, comatose since being kissed by the young Anna Marie (Rogue).

(Rogue I#3 (fb) - BTS) - Candra apparently granted additional(?) powers to Assassins Guild members Fifolet, Gris-Gris, Questa, and Singer.

(Rogue I#2) - As Candra enjoyed the sounds of a jazz band in New Orleans' French Quarter, the Tithe Collector announced Bella Donna's arrival and then sent her out for a meeting. Bella confirmed that Gambit would be delivered to Candra after Bella was done with him, and Candra offered that she could again become the Benefactress to the Assassins, with no concern of any of the Thieves Guild.

(Rogue I#3) - Bella Donna apprised Candra on Rogue and Gambit's approach, and Candra noted she felt Bella's empowered assassins could slow Rogue down so Gambit could arrive first, as planned.

    Candra subsequently confronted Rogue in Bella Donna's home as she sought Cody, taunting her with the captured and bound Cody, Tante Mattie, and Gambit. Bella Donna was initially irate that Candra had brought Rogue there, but Candra led Bella to appreciate that this is what she had truly wanted. As they started to battle, Candra tripped them both of their powers, so they could fight it out woman-to-woman.

(Rogue I#4) - Candra enjoyed the fight initially, but when Bella confronted her at knifepoint and questioned her reasons for prolonging the powerless struggle, Candra telekinetically took the knife and smashed Bella against the wall, explaining she was enjoying flaunting her power and that she could and would destroy either or both Guilds if she felt like it. As Bella took off to confront Rogue for her own reasons, Candra explained that the power drain was temporary an deach would get their powers back, although she was not sure whose would return first.

    Candra then awakened Gambit so he could witness "all the fun"; she refused to let them get help for Cody and instead discussed matters with Gambit, while he used a hidden pick to free himself from his bonds. When he got free and grabbed her, Candra restrained him telekinetically and prepared to crush him, but Rogue arrived and distracted her. Candra let Gambit go, but then launched the helpless Cody high into the sky, taunting the still partially powerless Rogue with letting him drop. Candra then offered to remove Rogue's powers permanently. Rogue instead forced her way out Candra's telekinetic restraint -- incapacitating Candra with the feedback/force -- and caught Cody before he hit the ground.


(
Rogue I#4) - Nonethless, Cody perished from his chronic illness.

(X-Men II#60 (fb) - BTS) - With Achmed el-Gibar dead, Candra took it upon herself to open Karima's mind to the larger world.

candra-external-nm-gam2-last.jpg(Night Man I#22 - BTS) - Loki Laufeyson manipulated
Night Man-93060 (Johnny Domino) via the Reality Gem, causing him to be split into multiple beings. Most of these were merged together or destroyed.

(Night Man II#4 (fb) - BTS) - Rhiannon made one of the two remaining Night Man duplicates "animal strong," making him more feral in nature and behavior; the more violent he became, the more the rational Night Man suffered physical deterioration.

(Night Man/Gambit#1 (fb) - BTS) - Rhiannon of Reality-93060 transported the rational portion of Night Man to Reality-616; she intended both portions to merge upon arriving in Reality-616 and be fully restored.
while the emotional portion remained in Reality-93060.

(Night Man/Gambit#1 (fb) - BTS) - Seeking a change, Candra discovered the existence of the alternate Reality-93060; she considered traveling there and starting over, but she was apprehensive about making the trip alone.

(Night Man/Gambit#1) - Candra contacted Gambit as he sat on monitor-duty at the Xavier Institute, proposing he join her in starting fresh in the alternate reality she had discovered. Not willing to trust Candra, Gambit was distracted by the arrival of a decaying Night Man from Reality-93060

(Night Man/Gambit#1 (fb) - BTS) - The feral Night Man encountered Candra, who brought him to her suite in the Boulevard of Orphans, New Orleans.

(Night Man/Gambit#1) - As the feral Night Man finished his shower, Candra used some folk medicine in applying a bandage to treat a wound on his thigh.
    There likely may have been some McLovin before or after this scene.

    She then told her "Wild Man" how she would make him stronger than he'd ever been, and she would make him hers, tonight, and every night until he burned out like the brilliant thing he was.

(Night Man/Gambit#2 - BTS) - The feral Night Man assaulted the Xavier Institute, and Gambit felt that Candra had a heavy hand in this. Ultimately, Rhiannon mystically subdued Gambit and both Night Mans (Night Men?).

(Night Man/Gambit#2) - As Rhiannon prepared to sacrifice Gambit and use his life energy to merge the two Night Mans, Candra appeared, telling Rhiannon she needed her permission before helping herself to any organ on Remy, but that for the right price, she would be happy to see the the blood flowed properly.

(Night Man/Gambit#3) - Candra and Rhiannnon continued to challenge each other, with Rhiannon mockingly calling Candra "Girl," and Candra calling Rhiannon "mother." Candra seemed to agree to let Rhiannon bleed Gambit in order to gain a fresh start on the other Earth, but when Gambit broke free from Rhiannon, Candra lost control of the feral Night Man. Refusing to allow the two Night Men to merge and lose her chance at crossing over between the worlds, Candra tackled Rhiannon and threatened her with Rhiannon's dagger, but Rhiannon blasted Candra away; in flight, Candra hurled Rhiannon's dagger, and the rational Night Man leapt in its path, intercepting the blade that would have struck Rhiannon.

    The feral Night Man restrained Candra, and as the rational Night Man perished, Rhiannon gained power from his death; furious at the death of her son (revealing/confirming this at last), Rhiannon threatened to destroy them all, but the remaining Night Man reached her and convinced her to back down, and she transported them both back to Reality-93060, where Night Man started a new life following his public seeming death (it's nebulous...someday Night Man will get his own profile, and it will hopefully be explained better there).

    Meanwhile, Gambit convinced Candra to let the portal close, and he promised her he would find a way for her to leave the Guilds without feeling like she was losing. Regardless, he arranged to get her out of the Xavier Institute before any of his teammates returned.

(Wolverine II#94 (fb) - BTS) - Candra sent Jamil to act as the guide to Cyber, leading him to the Citadel of the Great One (Genesis/Tyler Dayspring).

(X-Men II#60 (fb) - BTS) - Via the power of "Jamil" to navigate the mind of anyone he was in contact with, Candra discovered it was Ororo who had stolen her Heart-gem years ago.

(X-Men II#60 (fb) - BTS) - Candra took mental control of Cyclops (Scott Summers) and sent him to confront Storm so she could regain the Heart of Candra.candra-external-xmii61-heart-destroyed

(X-Men II#60 (fb) - BTS) - Candra took Karima hostage to ensure Storm would turn over the Heart of Candra.

(X-Men II#60) - Cyclops assaulted Storm, and when Storm recognized Candra's influence, Candra spoke through Cyclops telling him she wanted the Heart of Candra delivered to the Temple of Dendur that night, and that Storm should come alone.

(X-Men II#60 (fb) - BTS) - After Candra released her hold on Cyclops, Storm showed him the Heart of Candra, telling him how she had stolen it in the past. When Cyclops insisted on accompanying her, Storm departed on her own after sending him to gather the others.

(X-Men II#60) - Within the reconstructed Temple of Dendur in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Candra greeted the arriving Storm. When Storm questioned why Candra needed it now (after so long without it) and what was to stop her from destroying it now, Candra answered the latter by revealing Karima to be her prisoner. Candra further revealed Jamil to be present, completely devoted to her, and to have been the means by which she had learned Ororo had stolen the Heart-gem.

    Jamil mentally assaulted Storm, and when she struck back, Jamil claimed the Heart-gem, noting how he had taken the power he craved directly out from under Candra; Jamil further announced himself to be the Shadow King.

(X-Men II#61) - When Candra demanded Jamil surrender the Heart, Storm reminded her she had brought him into all of this. Storm then covered Jamil with snow from a localized blizzard, but when she went to free Karima, Candra telekinetically smashed Storm against a wall and began trying to free Jamil to reclaim the Heart. When the Juggernaut burst out of where Jamil had been located, Candra suspected that Jamil had used the Heart's power to magnify his own to transform himself; seeking to discover the truth herself, Candra brutally attacked Storm, and when Storm fought back, "Jamil" transformed into Cable (Nathan Dayspring Askani'son) and blasted Candra with the Heart-gem.

    Candra screamed in agony, but Storm figured out what was going, took Karima outside into an alley and insisted she stop this madness. When Candra angrily confronted them and asked about Jamil's whereabouts, Storm and Karima explained that Jamil had never existed: He was a creation of Karima's own mutant powers.

    Candra announced her intent to claim both the gem and Karima and to kill Storm, but as Storm tossed the Heart-gem to her, Cyclops -- who had led Wolverine and Jean Grey to follow Storm -- blasted the Heart-gem, shattering it. In a blinding release of energy, Candra vanished.

    Storm subsequently confirmed Wolverine's suspicions that she knew they were there, which is why she tossed the gem into the open (see comments). 
candra-external-scarsp19-reddeath.jpg

(Scarlet Spider II#19 (fb) - BTS) - Candra's body was destroyed, but not her psyche or her power.

(Scarlet Spider II#19 (fb)) - In time, thanks to her sisters, Candra learned how to take strength from death...enough strength to augment her remaining power and slowly pull the pieces of her body back together.

(Scarlet Spider II#19 (fb) - BTS) - Candra arranged with the Assassins Guild, and the process of reassembling/restoring her body was hastened considerably by tributes from the Guild.candra-external-scarsp19-reddeath-face.jpg

(Scarlet Spider II#17 (fb) - BTS / Scarlet Spider II#19 (fb) - BTS) - Red Death ordered Bella Donna to arrange the death of Wolverine, figuring his life-energies would complete her recovery.

(Scarlet Spider II#17 - BTS) - When the Assassins Guild's Smithy voiced his desire to kill Kaine, Bella Donna reminded him that the Red Death did not care about his vendetta. Bella Donna called in a debt/promised murder from the Scarlet Spider (Kaine), instructing him to kill Wolverine (James Howlett/Logan).

(Scarlet Spider II#17 - BTS / Scarlet Spider II#18 (fb) - BTS) - Kaine arranged -- via telepathic communication from his ally Hummingbird/Aracely -- with Wolverine to play along so they could team up to take down the Assassins Guild.

(Scarlet Spider II#18 - BTS) - After Kaine stopped Wolverine's heart via skewering it, the X-Men prepared to assault Kaine, and members of the Assassins Guild reported Kaine's success and also his potential imminent termination to Bella Donna. The Assassins Guild's leader offered both to the Red Death.

(Scarlet Spider II#18) - As Kaine got the upper hand in a battle against the Assassins Guild, the Red Death appeared, skewering Smithy twice through the chest with her cloak, and telekinetically ensnaring Kaine and Wolverine.

(Scarlet Spider II#19) - As Candra noted that the Red Death would show her children (the Assassins Guild) how to kill, Wolverine asked about her survival. Sensing Kaine and Wolverine's own near-death experiences, Candra explained her continued existence before noting that they would both know death's embrace at last, and their essences would restore her to her full glory. Causing an actual spider to drop down on her face, Kaine freaked out Candra so that she lost her telekinetic hold on her opponents, after which Kaine webbed her face, blinding her. When Wolverine tried skewer Candra, she blasted him away, and Bella Donna urged the other Assassins to kill Kaine and Wolverine. Candra finally ripped the webbing off, taking pieces of her face with it, and she angrily assaulted Kaine, until Wolverine stabbed her in the read. Weakened, Candra drained the life of some of the Assassins. After urging the Assassins that they needed to stop Candra then and there to prevent this from continuing, Kaine and Wolverine battled Candra further, and Assassins Guild member Flower punched out Bella Donna when she opposed the heroes. Finally, Kaine skewered Candra in the head, exhausting her energies and causing her to collapse, reverting to skeletal, corpse-like form.

    Bella Donna assisted Candra would be back with righteous and absolute fury, but Kaine arranged for agents of the Kingpin to gain control over the Assassins Guild and prevent any further fighting.




candra-external-cab150-death-fight(Cable IV#150 (fb) / Cable IV#152 (fb) - BTS) <"13 year ago" (see comments)> - Having survived (see comments), Candra was awakened from her slumber by Gideon; she was surprised to see him and realized he was there to kill her. She put a solid fight lasting hours, but it wasn't enough.

(Cable IV#150 (fb) / Cable IV#152 (fb) - BTS) - Candra was slain by Gideon, who tore out her heart to ensure she truly died.

(Cable IV#150) <"13 year ago"> - Cable and Longshot viewed Candra's corpse in a New Orleans morgue to confirm her identity and that she was truly dead. candra-external-cab150-corpse

    Longshot used his postcognition/psychometry power to view her death, but Candra had apparently been dead too long for him to get an image of her killer; he could only tell that Candra recognized her killer (perhaps considering him or her to be an old friend), and was surprised to see him/her.


(Cable IV#150-152 - BTS) <"13 year ago"> - Cable and his allies -- Armor, Doop, Longshot, Shatterstar, X-23 -- investigated the Externals and discovered Gideon to be the killer.

(Cable IV#153+ ) - not published at the time I finished this profile.

Comments: Created by Howard Mackie, Lee Weeks, and Klaus Janson.

    It's interesting that Storm threw the Heart of Candra into the air, figuring that Cyclops would blast it, which he did; they both had to figure his blast might shatter the gem, and as it was Candra's heart/power, that shattering the gem may likely kill her. The X-Men and other heroes often fight their own allies to prevent the murder of anyone, even someone that is/was pure evil; didn't seem to bother them one bit that they essentially conspired to kill Candra.

    In her initial appearances, she looked to be only a few inches shorter than the 6'8" Gideon (although the writer/artist may not have taken Gideon's height into account), and she was like 4 inches taller than Bond, although Bond may have just been broad and not that tall. I'd have thought she was a solid 6'. At any rate, 5'9" is fairly tall for a woman, and I don't think she necessarily was any taller than that in her later appearances.

    Regardless, 130 lbs. is a little lean for a 5'9" woman with her figure. I'd go with 138-140 lbs., personally.

    I can't help but think "Candra of the Floating Spires" is some double entendre. Reminds me of Bob Seger's "Night Moves" (and not because of the Family Guy references to that)

    We don't know what makes beings Externals...is it just a collection of immortals that happen to be immortal, or is there some common experience, ceremony, or what?

    Thanks to Minor Irritant and MarvelousLuke for pointing out the Scarlet Spider appearances I had forgotten!

13 YEARS AGO

Most writers just don't get Marvel's sliding timescale, so it's really hard to sort out what they mean when they say this.

13 years ago Marvel time would be the early days of the Fantastic Four, as the spaceflight that mutated them took place less than 15 years ago

13 years ago by publication date is what makes sense to me...refering to events taken place during comics published in 2004.

candra-external-xmii60-heart-framedcandra-external-xmii60-heart-protectedHeart of Candra

The Heart of Candra was a gem imbued with the essence of the real heart of Candra. It was sought after by some beings in hopes of gaining the power of the immortal mutant.

(X-Men II#60 (fb) - BTS) <Per Candra> - As those of her race could be killed by running a blade through the heart in order to absorb the mystic energy therein, when she had forsaken the other Externals, she needed to protect herself from their wrath. 

    She therefore transferred her heart-essence into a gem she kept hidden.

(X-Men II#61 (fb) - BTS) <A millennium ago> - Candra's (or perhaps another External's) heart was stolen by an unidentified mortal. This somehow cost Candra dearly.

(X-Men II#60 (fb) - BTS) - While under the tutelage of Achmed el-Gibar, the young Ororo Munroe heard rumors of the great treasure (the Heart of Candra) within a mansion just beyond Kasime, near Cairo.

(X-Men II#60 (fb) - BTS) - Ororo stole the gem, but before she reached the top again, a white glow suddenly emanated from the empty gem-case. 

    Lightning-like bolts erupted from the floor, cutting through, killing, and nearly incinerating the guards. candra-external-xmii60-heart-guardsdie.jpg

    Ororo before the palace the palace and its retaining hillside were obliterated by the energies. She then found that the "ruby" she had stolen was no longer glowing. 

    Ororo showed the gem to Achmed, who told her he would keep this "heart of an eternal darkness" until she was old enough to understand what she had done; he hoped the bright lady would forgive her for the brashness of her youth.

(X-Men II#61 (fb) - BTS) - Candra was severely pained and found herself vulnerable for the first time in centuries.

(X-Men II#60 (fb) - BTS) - Candra thought her Heart-gem was lost forever.

(X-Men II#60 (fb) - BTS) - In time, Ororo learned how dangerous the gem could be.

(X-Men II#60 (fb) - BTS) - Achmed el-Gibar suspected that to destroy Candra's heart-gem might cause a catastrophic release of energy like that which occurred when Ororo stole the gem. candra-external-xmii61-heart-destroyed

(X-Men II#60 (fb) - BTS) - When Ororo departed Egypt, Achmed entrusted the gem to her, bidding her to keep the stone from those who would exploits its mysteries. 

(X-Men II#60 (fb) - BTS) - Via the power of "Jamil" to navigate the mind of anyone with whom he was in contact, Candra discovered it was Ororo who had stolen her Heart-gem years ago.

(X-Men II#60 (fb) - BTS) - Candra took mental control of Cyclops (Scott Summers) and sent him to confront Storm so she could regain the Heart of Candra.

(X-Men II#61) - Candra suspected that Jamil had used the Heart's power to magnify his own to transform himself, while "Jamil" transformed into Cable (Nathan Dayspring Askani'son) and blasted Candra with the Heart-gem. Storm discovered and explained that Jamil had never existed: He was a creation of Karima's own mutant powers. 

    When Candra attempted to claim both the gem and Karima and to kill Storm, Storm tossed the Heart-gem to her, but Cyclops -- who had led Wolverine and Jean Grey to follow Storm -- blasted the Heart-gem, shattering it. In a blinding release of energy, Candra vanished.
