Leslie Christian is a fictional character from the Wild Cards series of books.


Leslie Christian first appeared in One-Eyed Jacks, telling stories of being a mercenary all over the world. A seemingly new player in the Shadow Fist Society, Christian advanced quickly in rank. Initially, it appeared that he was controlling the Immaculate Egrets and other Shadow Fist agents under orders from Sui Ma or Kien Phuc. Although he thought he was being primed for Fadeout's position, Christian was really just a pawn and was soon killed by Kien Phuc who stole his body and powers for a time. When Kien used jumpers to take possession of Fadeout's body, the last remnant of Leslie Christian was eliminated. Blaise Andrieux shot "Christian" in the face, and Fadeout's mind died with him.

Wild Card TraitsEdit

Christian's ace was a very minor power, astral projection. He could send his consciousness out from his physical body to invisibly spy upon others.


Leslie Christian is a Caucasian male between 45 and 60 years old. He is tall, blonde and British. Kien describes his condition as "an old, badly abused body."


Christian has a cocky world-weary attitude as if he had seen it all and nothing could surprise him. He enjoys taunting those beneath him in the Shadow Fist organization, especially the powerful ace Lazy Dragon. In light of the seemingly insignificant nature of his own ace, he was either very confident or very foolhardy.
