Michael was the prime close quarters combat specialist of Scarlet team before his demise. When he was first put into the program, he found a love of shotguns and SMGs, and the are his primary weapons. Michael was well known for not being a highly good shot, which rumor has it is why he stuck to CQB action. In 2552, Michael and the rest of Scarlet were dispatched in tandem with Gold Team to hunt down SPARTAN-312, who had gone rogue. Michael was killed by a minefield SPARTAN-312 had set while scouting for SPARTAN-312).
