Charles "Wrecker" Abidimi is a minor character in the Wild Cards series of books.


Charles Abidimi was the son of an Igbo soldier who had abandoned his Yoruba mother in a Lagos slum, and Charles had subsequently spent most of his early life in the London suburb of Brixton. When immigration authorities deported his mother, she took herself and Charles back to Lagos, which was promptly overrun by the Simba Brigades of the People's Paradise of Africa. His mother then sold Charles to PPA recruiters for two-hundred dollars.

After being forcibly injected with the wild card virus, Charles drew an ace and gained the power to detonate matter. He was used for a time as a child soldier, until during a battle between PPA aces and the Committee, he killed Gardener before being captured by Rustbelt.
