Michael, well, is the only one at Division who did not have criminal record, before he joins Division that is. Michael was working as an undercover secret agent for the Armed Forces. Married, he had a daughter and portrayed a typical family. For some unknown reasons, Percy eyed Michael as an important addition to his organization. As a matter of principle, Division’s Agents (it’s Percy’s rule) cannot be tied with family; so, Percy arranged for Michael’s wife and daughter to be blown into pieces in broad day light, right under his eyes. While recovering in the hospital, Michael received a visit from Percy who promised to help him find those who kill his wife and daughter. With nothing left to live for, Michael took that offer as an opportunity to continue to serve his country while waiting patiently to avenge his family. Michael became Percy’s other second in command side by side with Amanda. Michael was loyal until he learned the truth. Fortunately for Michael, Nikita is on his side and on a crusade to destroy Division.
