Character Bio


The aptly named Bannister Sparks, a former riverboat gambler, was the entrepreneur of the Wildside group.

Bannister’s Emporium & Trading Co. was the home of the Wildside Chamber of Commerce.

Bannister dressed like a dandy, lived in a mansion, had a servant and generally liked the good life.

When trouble started, the first blow struck was usually by small scale explosives he lit with his ubiquitous slender cigars.
