Samuelle has been an operative for Section One for 10 years. A Level 5 operative,
Michael is a formidable opponent who does his job well. His years with Section
have honed him into operative who will kill without hesitation and show little
mercy to those who betray him.
Michael was brought into Section One as a young college student from Marseilles
Paris, where at University, he became involved in a student revolutionary group
whose message was given through bombs. Although initially, as with any recruit,
Michael found life in Section difficult, he quickly grew to become one of the
leading operatives in the organization. Michael, it seemed was being groomed
to one day take over Section One.
Michael was assigned to Nikita during her training at Section One, and has
come to be her mentor, teacher, sometime friend, and sometime lover. Michael
has known love before and knows that a life in Section makes it impossible to
truly give ones heart freely. His first wife, Simone, was also an operative
who was believed to be dead. In reality, she was being held prisoner by ? a
terrorist organization Section had been trying to destroy. As soon as Michael
was reunited with her, she gave her own life to destroy those who had held her
captive. Michael was given a second chance at love with Elena Vacek(sp?). He
had been assigned to her in order to get to her father, a target Section One
was finding difficult to eliminate. For 5 years, Michael was happily living
with the pretense of his marriage to the beautiful woman, and was an even more
caring and loving father to his son Adam, a product of this deception. Soon,
however, Section , through Michael, had their target, and his life with Elena
had come to a close. Michael, presumed dead by his family, was almost destroyed
by his loss. If not for Nikita, Michael would have given up on life. Although,
Michael eventually put his grief behind him, he does not believe love and Section
can coincide and fights the feelings he has for Nikita because of this.
Now, Michael's fate is unknown. When Nikita revealed that she had been working
undercover for The Center, she was the one who decided Michael's cancellation
orders, but while on the suicide mission that was to take his life, Nikita got
him out alive, but insisted that she had never loved him, she had been deceiving
him the short time that they were together. Is this true or is it just a game
that must be played to survive in their world?
