Spark grew up in smalltown Gnomesville, but was bored with his life there. With a backpack of firestarting equipment he soon began traveling as lead roadie and chief of pyrotechnics for Anaxagoras and the Minstrels. Plutarch, the head minstrel, decided to become a solo Bard, breaking up the band. Spark left when the remaining members hated his idea of creating The Animatronic RockaFire Conflagration to take the place of the departing members. Well traveled and with a desire to be the best pyrotechnic/animatronic tinkerer the world has ever seen, Spark seeks his fortune, hoping to start a chain of pizza restaurants with animatronic house bands.
When it comes to explosions, theatrical is more important than impactful or practical.
