Michael was fighting for his life the very day he was born. Complications during the birth caused his mother to die of a cardiac arrest. This unfortunate event turned Michael's father, a former soldier, into a strict and bitter man. His only interest in his child was Michael's fighting skill. He trained Michael in the use of firearms and hand to hand combat. Due to his father's strict training routine, Michael often got into fights with other children, sometimes starting them without provocation. He caught the attention of a local gang, and was recruited after he beat two of them in a fist fight. Michael let out his anger through acts of vandalism and violence. He received his scar during a skirmish against a rival gang, where he was slashed across the face. When an innocent bystander was killed during a rather violent brawl, Michael decided to leave the gang. He went though different jobs, like bar tending and construction work. When his father died from a heart attack, Michael decided to continue his father's legacy, and he joined the Marines.
