Head of the Middenheim Treasury, Sparsam was seen by the party being hounded by angry Dwarves through the streets near the palace. They later got a chance to meet him in person when Alric Konrad requested tax exemption as the new City Champion. At the opera that night, Willow Alderberry witnessed him alone in his private box, inhaling some white powder. A few days later, they pressured him into admitting his addiction to laughing powder and the resulting pressure put on him to vote in favour of the new taxes, and he asked if they could possibly find him an alternative source. Eventually, Luigi Pavarotti was able to help him with this addiction.
