KanPaar is a kandra of the Second Generation on Scadrial.

Appearance and Personality[edit]

He uses a tall True Body made out of red crystal[1] and keeps the rest of his body translucent.[2] He has a thick accent.[1]

He is of the Second Generation, giving him authority just below that of the First Generation among the kandra. He is an administrator who spends almost all of his time in the Kandra Homeland.[1]


KanPaar has spent centuries trying to prove that the kandra of the Third Generation are untrustworthy. KanPaar personally assigned TenSoon to Straff Venture.[2]

He was the primary speaker during the trial of the kandra TenSoon.[1] Soon after Sazed's arrival in the Kandra Homeland, KanPaar and the rest of the Second Generation lead a coup against the First Generation, imprisoning them and taking control. He then discovered the atium cache in the Trustwarren, and made plans to sell some it, revealing the cache's location to Ruin in the process. KanPaar refused to follow the Resolution, instead leaving the Homeland to sell some of the atium.[3] Marsh, however, found KanPaar and took the atium, which he later used to extend his life via Compounding.[4]
