  • Dogged Nice Guy: He really liked Angela...and finding out about her cheating really hurt him.

Played by: Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson

  • Berserk Button: Anything will set him off.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: In "Ghost Is Dead", when he is suffocating the life out of Ghost with some plastic wrapping material, Kanan wastes time taunting him about the other ways he would've gone about killing him like a BoomHeadshot or fucking Tasha while he was dying., allowing Ghost to pick up shattered glass and stabbed him with it.
  • The Chessmaster: His hobby appears to be playing chess and he's shown to be a highly effective Manipulative Bastard.
  • Dirty Coward: He'd rather sit back and let Shawn kill Ghost for his betrayal rather than do it himself. He does so later anyways when Shawn fails.
  • Disappeared Dad: To Shawn. He's been in jail for his entire childhood.
  • Evil Counterpart: To James. While James does engage in illegal activities, he genuinely wants to go straight and has some humanizing qualities about him; Kanan, even after being in jail for a decade, wants to go back to doing the same drug-dealing and murdering crimes and is a pure sociopath. Also, while James is very good parent to his kids, Kanan continually pressures Shawn into doing something he obviously doesn't want to do — and murdered Shawn when he decided to not kill James.
  • Has a Type: Kanan likes women with big butts.
  • Jerkass: Has no redeeming qualities whatsoever.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: He is however justified in being mad with Ghost setting him up, directly leading to his imprisonment.
  • Offing the Offspring: He murdered Shawn after he decided not to kill Ghost.
  • The Sociopath: Kanan shows no empathy for others, overreacts at the slightest of irritating things, and skillfully manipulates people. But the moment that certified Kanan as a true, unrepentant sociopath is killing Shawn. His own son.

How well does it match the trope?
