    You could answer this question by using examples of Candy's dialogue to reflect his character.

    For example he is a blunt, perceptive character which you can see through his dialogue; 'you see if she ain't a tart'. His use of language is colloquial for example 'ain't' and the fact he doesn't use the correct terms but is informal, making a conversation with George and Lennie.

    You could also make references to Candy's dog as it echos Candy's description. They are both old and both feel pains ('painfully to his feet' and 'ancient dog')

    I think I have done the same question as you and these are the sort of things you need to say. Sorry if this is completely different though.
