Commissioner Sassafrass is one of the oldest figures in Infinity Knights society. He was portrayed by Scottish actor Sean Connery in Season 20 and the 2008 Specials.

Sassafrass opened the first police department on Kayaclasch and, according to legend, invented the name of "Infinity Knights". By the time of the Inspector's life, he had already retired for centuries, but it was rumoured he was still alive somewhere.

Sassafras is known for his Cosmic Sporran, which contains unknown power. Its abilities are on par with the Inspector's Optic Pocketknife.
