An orphaned halfling who grew up a thief/rogue in the cavernous underworld of Sharn, Spike manifested a Mark of Detection during his time in the Brelish infantry. Recruited into the war-criminal squad ( House Medani’s Basilisk Gaze) despite aberrant suspicions, Spike returned to Sharn to hunt the eight of Diamonds, who turned out to be Daask captain Genter the Red. While fighting crime, he also finds out that he is the grand-nephew of the most powerful halfling on the Talentan Plains. After finding out that master manipulator Quelos was the Queen of Spades, he continues his work for the Gaze to track down this dangerous Cyran prince.
