Nothing is known about Michael's life prior to or as the outbreak began.
Nothing is known about Michael's time during the apocalypse other than that at some point he joined the Delta, whether this was willingly or by force like many other Delta members is unknown.
Michael first appears aboard the Delta ship. As Clementine and the group use the walker herd to infiltrate, he comes outside and shoots some of the walkers. When Willy is spotted either burning or cutting the supply rafts loose, he moves to investigate. A bit later, as Clementine, AJ, and Violet/Louis are sneaking through the ship, Michael runs into the same room as them. Just as they hide, he spots one of them moving, and Clementine quickly ducks behind a set of crates. If Clementine received Abel's notes during his interrogation earlier by making him sweat in the episode, she will learn of a call and response system used by the raiders, composed of city names. In this scenario, Michael asks for a city name, and Clementine is given the opportunity to respond. If Clementine responds with the correct name, Rockingham, Michael tells Clementine to get back to her post and leaves, assuming her to be another raider. If the wrong name is chosen, or Abel's notes were not acquired, a suspicious Michael will approach the crates to investigate.
Kill (Undead): Clementine will stab Michael in the neck, killing him. Michael later reanimates and can be seen crawling out from the wreckage of the boat.
Knockout (Dead): Clementine will disarm Michael and proceed to bash him in the face with his rifle and knock him out.
Answer Correctly (Dead): If Clementine made Abel sweat during his interrogation, he'll give her a list of city names they use. As Clem hides behind cover on the boat, Michael asks for a city name, if Clem tells him "Rockingham", Michael will fall for it and tell her to get back to her post before leaving. If Clem gets the answer wrong, she'll have to knock him out or kill him.
If Michael was spared in the previous episode, he will appear in the background, shooting at walkers, however, he is quickly overwhelmed and devoured. If he was killed in "Broken Toys," he can briefly be seen as a zombie, crawling out from the wreckage of the boat.
