He liked to outdoor activities such as camping, fishing, hunting, hiking ans skiiing in his free time. His uncle was in the military and Michael had always planned to follow suit, he joined up for five years and fulfilled his contract, after doing so him and an army buddy of his went in to security contracting in Lebanon.
He originally was going to Chernarus for his brother's birthday and they had planned to go skiing in Severniy, of course they weren't planning on getting stuck in the country for months and moved to overflowing evacuation camps where he got split up from his brother and hasn't seen him since. He was planning to leave in the cover of darkness to search for his brother but just before he did he was told that his brother had symptoms and was a threat so he was disposed of, with this knowledge Michael felt lost and is now wandering alone looking for purpose while putting the blame on his brother's death on himself.
