Walk Quietely and Carry a Large Stick

I have been to a lot of Southern Conventions now, and one thing rings true. I always have to have my trusty cane/walking stick with me. I have sciatica so I can experience back pain when walking around a lot ie conventions. So normally I just hand off my cane when having my picture taken, or make a prop that is a functional cane.

So....in the intrest of accurate cosplays, what are characters that walk around with canes/walking sticks.

Cain Hargreaves from the Count Cain series (Cain Saga, Godchild) has a cane (With a knife in it X3)

Urahara from Bleach. =) If you don't mind crossplaying, that is.

I don't know any off the top of my head, but you could always cosplay someone with a staff or similar prop and disguise your cane that way

I don't mind copslaying a SnJ of a character. Yeah, staves are okay too. But generally something is better when I can lean on it. Alot of times I try to "envision the cane a character might use"

It's a crossplay, but Raphael from Soul Calibur II uses a cane as his "joke" weapon during the game.

There's also Tuxedo Mask of Sailor Moon if you want to go old school anime.

You could be a FF white mage. One from Tactics would probably be a good choice. The staffs aren't ridiculously tall looking so you could probably get away with it looking pretty darn accurate and being cane height.

Otherwise um, Willy Wonka or the Count from Gankutsuou. And a few Sailor Moon characters have ginormous staff things.
