Biography: 

In the narrator's opinion, Spoomer is a snob from a family of snobs. He has some factual basis for this: Spoomer doesn't want his dog to eat the trash behind the enlisted men's mess hall. "You mustn't eat that stuff," he tells the dog, "That's for soldiers" (519). Spoomer also uses his rank to impress women; he has taken one from Sartoris before the story in France begins. He also pulls rank on Sartoris to keep him from seeing 'Toinette in Amiens by giving him "some duty not in his province at all and which would keep him on the aerodrome for the afternoon" (519). He also has a notable lack of experience flying the airplanes under his command; he is only qualified as an observer.
