Michael is a supporting character first introduced in Issue 19 of Dead Weight. He is a member of The Specifics at Santos Safe Zone. He appears to be close to Connor and is willing to do his bidding for him.
Nothing is known about Michael's life before the apocalypse. He could have possibly lived in or around the area of the Santos Safezone.
Sometime during the apocalypse, Michael came across The Specifics and joined. He eventually became one of the closer individuals to Connor and worked with him, most notably when punishments are made. He presumably was also a scavenger as he went out with Bri one time.
- Numerous counts of zombies
Michael appears willing to follow orders and commands from those higher up in the community, no matter what they are. He also was seemingly regretful for the actions he may have done under Connor, as he momentarily regretted his attempt at murdering Bri. However, these feelings were quickly overthrown by Michael's want to be recognized and higher in The Specific's hierarchy.
After attempting to kill Bri, she killed him in self defense. She hit him over the head and caused him to fall from a roof and into a horde of dead below, however, she cracked into his skull, killing him before the dead could. Michael could therefore not reanimate and was most likely completely devoured.
Michael is very loyal to Connor and followed him as a leader. He wilingly attempted to kill Bri for Connor and unleash the undead on Alison, leading to her death. However, following Connor eventually led to his death. Michael was most likely willing to die for Connor.
Michael and Bri hadn't interacted alot, however Michael didn't seem to want to be her friend as he was instructed by Connor to get rid of her during a supply run. After Bri saves him from one of the dead, which was easily stronger than both of them, he thanked her. It's unknown if Michael began to regret agreeing to kill Bri, however he wanted to be higher in The Specific's food chain, so he went through with it. However, Bri managed to survive and killed Michael is self defense.
