The Cannibal Headhunters are a fictional organization from the Wild Cards series of books.


The Cannibal Headhunters were a feared street gang under the umbrella of the Shadow Fist Society until Daniel Brennan (Yeoman) killed their leader, an ace named Scar. The Cannibals used moko, Maori tribal markings, tattooed in scarlet and black on their faces. Scar was the founder and guiding force of the Headhunters. Power struggles ripped the gang apart as Scar's lieutenants tried to fill the vacuum caused by his death. The gang disintegrated and no longer functions as a unit, though individual members still pop up from time to time. Most of the Headhunters since gravitated to other quasi-criminal organizations. Ex-Headhunters can sometimes be identified by their heavily tattooed faces.
