Killzone: Shadow FallEdit
During the Helghast resettlement on Vekta, and the forced eviction of several thousands of civilians to the other side of the city, Michael and his son, Lucas, attempted to escape to the safety of the Vektan side of the city, for fear of being killed by the aggressive Helghast. He and his son witnessed from their home a man being gunned down by the Helghast. The pair grab supplies and make their escape shortly before their home is stormed by the Helghast.
During their escape, they met with Shadow Marshal Sinclair, who helped them in their escape. When they were near the Wall, Michael stunned a Helghast soldier guarding the route, but then expressed displeasure of seeing Sinclair shoot the helpless Helghast. When Michael, Sinclair and Lucas were near safety, Sinclair told them to wait for him as he scouted the area ahead, claiming the route to be dangerous. As they waited, Michael and Lucas were then spotted by a drone, which alerted nearby soldiers of their presence.
Though they tried to escape, Michael was then shot and injured. Despite pleading for mercy, he was then shot dead by the soldiers. Before being shot however, he displayed extreme courage stating that the Helghast had no right to be committing the atrocities that were taking place. His son, Lucas, was saved by Sinclair, who would later take his place in raising him.
