Michael was born aboard a cargo ship on the Atlantic Ocean. His father was working on the ship as a cargo handler while his pregnant girlfriend was on board with him. Since they didn't have any long term home to stay at Michael's father took his girlfriend with him on the ship he was working on at the time. They figured out to try to get to some nice hospital at ships destination. Michael's father was able to convince the ships captain to let her girlfriend on board by giving 1/3 of his salary back to the ships captain as a payment for his girlfriends stay aboard. But during a storm on middle of the Atlantic Ocean Michael's mother got in to labour and the ships doctor had to deliver the baby on board the ship. Everyone was worried for the new born baby on board but after a while it brought the crew some life and content on their otherwise dull and hard work.
After that Michael's parents got a place to stay at but as Michael grew up they had to move a lot from place to place cause Michael's father was doing some odd jobs around Europe. Later on Michael's father ended up doing construction work and they stayed a long time in Slovakia. As Michael grew up he also started doing construction work with his father and helped him on his job as an apprentice construction worker. Michael worked with his father for many years until His father got in a bad accident at work and died tragically.
After that Michael just left his home and roamed all around Europe and ended up in Chernarus doing odd jobs here and there on the way. Michael haven't been the same since his father died. It was too much for him to bare and he just lost himself in the middle of all that sorrow and grief. Michael was doing some construction work in the city of Chernogorsk when the viral outbreak occured. He was a mess inside even before the zombies but now after the world has ended he is even more troubled and struggles to go on.
Michael somehow still has a glimpse of hope in him but it's just buried deep with in him. He has been looking out only for himself since his father died, but now in middle of all the chaos and end of the world he finds something in him that he can't yet really comprehend nor grasp. There is some goodness trying come fort on him that he thought he lost a long time a go.
"Maybe there is life after the zombies after all?"- He ponders as he enters a big city up the north......
