Mike Crosby was a SAINT agent posing as a Nepleslian marine who was a member of the NSS Alliance crew. While on a diplomatic mission to Elysia, Mike attempted to assassinate an Elysian Senator to incite a war between the two nations. He was quickly subdued by the efforts of several marines, including Sergeant Scott Agar, Gran Keats, and Chiaki Kokuten. The assassination attempt did, however, reveal that the Elysians were using duplicates instead of the actual diplomats.
Crosby was brought back to Nepleslia, where he was tried and sentenced to jail time, although his true motives and employer were, and still are, unknown to the Nepleslian government. On the way to prison his transport disappeared somewhere in route, when SAINT ambushed it and extracted him. His subsequent whereabouts and activities are unknown.
Mike was also notable for having a stun gun built into the tip of his manhood.
