1st Hunger Games

Pre-games

Reaping

Sparks was reaped for the 1st Hunger Games by District 12 escort Pia Chino. As District 12 isn't a district where children are eager to be reaped, there were no volunteers to take his place. The female tribute reaped for the games was Ellis Gron.

Opening ceremony

In the opening ceremony, Sparks was styled by the District 12 head stylist Rosalie Chorge. As District 12's industry is coal, Chorge designed a coal-covered costume for her tributes. They placed 6th out of 12.

Training

In training, Sparks showed an interest in learning how to wield an axe, and went through training for it. In his private session with the judges, Sparks demonstrated his newly-learned axe throwing skills, and was given a score of 3.

Games

In the games, Sparks was the eighth tribute killed. Immediately after the games began, he rushed for the cornucopia, but was killed by Finn Lou of District 4 with a trident. He placed 17th out of 24.
