Kandy was first Irrelevant Kandy, however she was ignored so much, she became I Kady. As I Kandy she got too much attention, so she became Kandy. She made a wish at a wishing well for adventure, excitement, and romances because she was bored stiff. The well turned her into a board.
Kandy, as a board, was found by Ease. He picked her up and carried her around Xanth as he searched for the antidote against the pun virus. She was able to communicate with him in a limited fashion. Ease fell in love with her as a board, and when he kissed her board face, she returned to being human.
