Most people seem to think Mike is odd and clumsy considering he is always dropping things. Actually if it wasn't for his ability to find things and hide, someone might have considered him useless and killed him. He doesn't like to talk to random people which is noted by most people. They may think he is shy or anti-social which isn't nearly the case. He's just rather scared to really communicate with anyone due to the recent circumstances. Mike was pretty new to Chernarus and didn't really know anyone. Once someone does attempt to speak to Mike, he easily opens up and usually attempts to be friends with that person. Mike cares deeply about what people think of him though he doesn't like to show it. Normally he drops things or trips when he get nervous around people. He can kinda sorta tell who is more accepting of him and will only talk to them. He is afraid of being bullied by others. Really he is a well thought out kind of guy but doesn't like to show it so he doesn't let anyone down.
A little History before the Apocalypse: Mike and his older brother Nick used to be like glue. They were always together getting into trouble from, fighting, stealing (money/cars), and selling weed. Over the years since they were teens, Mike and his brother hung around the wrong crowd. They carried guns and robbed people but his older brother wanted more money, more everything. Eventually they went their separate ways as Devin went to college and his brother turned to a life of crime and joined a gang.
A year in to the Apocalypse: Mike had changed. Mike was not the Mike he used to be when he was with his brother. He became more passive, more caring, more loving, yet shy. When the apocalypse hit, everything changed. Mike was alone... He had no idea if his brother was either still alive or dead. Seeing as the circumstances were out of control, he thought the worse. Mike is now on a mission... A mission to seek out his brothers loss. Mike decided to venture out, pack his back pack and make it a mission to find his brother.
