Sparx is a character from the BBC show, Ace Lightning. As a Lightning Knight, Sparx has sworn to protect the Amulet of Zoar from Lord Fear, and is willing to sacrifice herself in the process. Very energetic and equally hotheaded, Sparx is never one to hold back during a battle, Sparx puts her powers and dangerous body into full force. A deadly fighter with her hands, Sparx is an expert in martial arts and gymnastics, as well as possessing great skills in swordfighting.
Sparx remains on Earth for several episodes. At one point, she becomes impatient with sitting around in the Thunder Tower, and goes to the Carnival depite the fact that her power levels are low. She confronts Lord Fear, and the two battle each other. Sparx knocks Fear's staff from his hands, but it then blasts her from behind, destroying the last of her power reserves, and thereby incapacitating her. Fear holds her prisoner, waiting for Ace to arrive and rescue her. When Ace does arrive, Lord Fear blasts him and prepares to destroy them both. However, Mark defeats Fear and rescues them. During her time in the human world, Sparx also engages in several fights with Lady Illusion, who believes that she (Sparx) is attracted to Ace. The validity of this assumption has never been explored. While leaving the scene of a battle with Googler, her then-current rival, Sparx is accidentally recorded on video by Chuck, who mistakes her for an alien. In the same episode, Googler ends up lost, and later attacks Mark and Mr. Cheseborough at the school. Ace and Sparx arrive to defend Mark, and in the ensuing battle, Sparx is accidentally wounded by Ace and she drops her sword. Zip and Snip take this opportunity and blast Sparx with her own weapon, destroying her and returning her to the Sixth Dimension. Before she dies, she tells Mark to take care of Ace in her absence.
When Ace locates another piece of the Amulet near the end of Season 1, he summons Sparx back from the Sixth Dimension to help him battle Lord Fear once again. In the next episode, she exacts revenge for her prior destruction by defeating Googler in a heated battle. She later engages in a fight with Lady Illusion, almost defeating her, but runs out of power at the last minute, allowing Lady Illusion to imprison her in a giant crystal ball. She remains within this prison throughout much of the next episode, but tricks Dirty Rat, who had been guarding her, into inciting a revolt against Lord Fear, distracting all the villains long enough for Ace to free her. However, while Ace is focussed on saving her, Lady Illusion steals their pieces of the Amulet from Mark. Now in possession of the entire Amulet, Lord Fear begins to slowly drain the powers of all the Lightning Knights. Along with Ace and Random Virus, Sparx takes part in a climactic battle with Lord Fear's forces, choosing to set herself against Googler. However, in her weakened state, she is easily defeated and subsequently imprisoned, along with Random Virus, in another crystal ball by Lady Illusion. When Mark shatters the Amulet, Sparx and Random are released form their captivity.
In Season 2, Ace and Sparx plan to return to the Sixth Dimension with Random, but the insuing battle and intervention of Lady Illusion causes only Ace and Sparx to return to the Sixth Dimension, where they are hunted by Googler until Ace vanishes due to Chuck's examination of Mark's Amulet piece. Chuck later appears in the game to save Sparx, the two return to Earth. Sparx tries to help Ace with his unstable emotions, but instead a rift forms between them, until they battle Pigface together and each realise that the other may have been partly in the right in their arguments. Sparx's rivlary with Lady Illusion continues throughout the second series, and the two engage in several battles. When Googler returns, he uses his powers to wound Sparx so that she 'bleeds' binary code. If this bleeding is not stopped soon enough, it will cause Sparx to return to the datastream. Ace attempts to help her, but later receives a similar wound when battling Google. Fortunately, Chuck uses an upgrade from his computer to cure both of the ailing Knights, and they combine attacks to defeat Googler. Several episodes later, Sparx engages in another battle with Googler, and almost loses. However, when he knocks her to the ground, she feigns incapacity, and her subsequent attack therefore catches him by surprise and defeats him.
Sparx is later captured by Kilobyte and imprisoned in an unbreakable forcefield along with Random and Kat Adams. Sparx seems to develop a friendship with Kat, and tells her she has accepted the relationship between Ace and Lady Illusion, after Kat asks her if she and Ace are a couple. Sparx is freed from the prison after the defeat of Kilobyte and witnesses Lady Illusion's death and comes to Ace's side to help him mourn his loss.
