Sparks is a Rock Gnome Wizard.
Sparks family discovered that he had potential for wizardry and spell casting at a very young age. They gathered together their meager savings and sent him for instruction from the closest wizard to the village. He was another gnome named Wilfred Fizzlebang.
Perhaps this was not the wisest choice of instructors. It wasn’t long before Wilfred blew up his small tower. Sparks was knocked unconscious. The villagers decided they had had enough of gnomish wizardry and drugged the young gnome and paid a trader to deliver him to the authorities in Waterdeep.
Unfortunately, the Waterdehavian guards had no idea the scrawny gnome might be a wizard so, they sent him to the Starry Cradle orphanage.
Recently, kids had been mysteriously disappearing and the staff had grown increasingly uncaring. So, Sparks joined his friends and made an escape into the miles of sewers under the city. They were pursued and became hopelessly lost.
Eventually, they found an exit from the sewers into a basement of a large manor. Chilled to the bone and starving. They took refuge in the basement and stayed out of sight.
Unbeknownst to them, they were noticed by the resident poltergeist, Lif. Lif shed his normally scary persona and began to bring the band of kids plates of food and cups of hot cocoa.
Sparks and the other orphans are all fiercely protective and loyal to each other. They continue to hide in the basement of Trollskull manor.
