|“||James Sprintz (14) German, lives in Düsseldorf. Brown hair, brown eyes, pale. Father; Dieter Sprintz, banker, well-known financier (the Million Dollar Man). Mother living in England. Expelled for wounding a teacher with an air pistol. My only friend at PB! And the only one who really hates it here.||”|
—Alex Rider's description of James Sprintz
Role in Series
He is the only boy who wasn't replaced by one of Dr. Hugo Grief's clones when Alex arrives. He and Alex became friends quickly. A week after Alex's arrival, he confides in him about his plan to escape Point Blanc Academy by skiing down the mountain. That night, he is taken away from his room and into the cells in the basement and replaced with Grief's clone. He is later set free, along with the other real boys, by Wolf and his squad along with Alex.
James is portrayed in the TV series in largely the same fashion as the books. The major difference is that his family deals in weaponry, rather than banking.
