The youngest of four brothers, Michelangelo is largely known as the 'party' sibling with his seemingly lack of discipline and easy-going attitude. However, those that know him can attest that Mikey is fiercely loyal to his friends and dependable in nearly all situations. While he used to not really know his place in the family, Mikey has slowly matured over recent years to develop a grand sense of pride to represent the Turtle Family. While capable in a fight, he much prefers to hang out with friends and play video games. Bring on the Orange Crush and cheese pizza!

Picture it: New York, some years ago. I'm one of four little turtles being experimented on- for science! It was okay, I guess, I don't really remember much about it, except that it was shell-numbingly boooring, but what are you gonna do? At least we got fed regulary. Life wouldn't stay too boring for long, though- there was some kerfuffle at the lab where we 'worked' and we were set free from our cage. Freedom! We bravely tried to run away, only to find ourselves trapped in some sort of muck...
Long story short, that muck made us change- made us smarter, faster, stronger, handsomer (okay, my case only, sorry Raph!) Even though we made the transition from cute to awesome, we were still pretty lost and would have probably ended up in dire straits if it hadn't been for one of the other test subjects: Master Splinter!
He took us under his wing (wait, rats don't have wings...) and we set up camp in the sewers (glamorous!) where he taught us everything he knows: meditation, serenity... and learning to kick some righteous ass!
Today, we keep to the shadows and we fight the good fight for those who can't...
(A-TEAM music begins to play in the background)
If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire... us!
No need to hire us, though, we'll help you if you need it.
But we never say 'no' to gratitude pizza. Know what I'm sayin'?
Except there's more to me than meets the eye.
Just between you and me, okay? I like your face, you've got an honest face.
I like to read. Like, a lot. Not science nerd books like the ones Donnie reads, and not all of that mystical philosophy Leo borrows from Master Splinter.
I like stories. I like reading stories. Heck, I like to WRITE stories- I've got notebooks hidden under my bunk full of stories. Just between us? Being a ninja is awesome, but telling stories is what I love to do. I try to read when I can, what I can- thank god for stuff like Amazon and the Gutenberg project, right? There's a whole world out there, full of stories to be read... and who knows? Maybe someday I'll publish mine. Wouldn't that be awesome?
I observe people a lot. They just don't know it 'cause all they see is me cracking wise, but people fascinate me. I pick up more than they think I do, I find out more than they think I find out-
But it's ok if they think I' the funny, goofy one- because I am. That's just not ALL of what I am... and maybe I like to surprise people when they least expect it.
You gonna finish that pizza, by the way?
I'm a turtle. Turtles are amphibian. You're not gonna drown us! In fact, you'll never know WHERE we might pop up, speaking about bodies of water. I can hold it for four hours- and I can also hold my breath about that long, too! (Arguing in the background)
Aw, c'mon Leo, I'm just joki-
Awright. Geez. Okay, dudes, I totally meant holding my breath. Any implication that I meant I could hold my wee for four hours was totally inappropriate, even if friggin' Leo makes us sit on rooftops for HOURS without moving during stakeouts and by this point I might as well be able to ho-
....aaright. I can also see underwater and swim pretty damned fast. And that's all I'm gonna say on the matter 'cause Leo's a big fat killjoy.
This drives Raph NUTS, but I gotta tell ya: I'm the most physically gifted of my bros! When I pay attention, I learn faster, I have an easier time putting on muscle, I have a higher natural endurance and I am CRAZY fast. Master Splinter tells me over and over again that if I only trained with Leo's discipline or Raph's stubbornness, I'd be top turtle!
But... I don't really do it. Like I toldja before, being a ninja is *cool*, but I've got other dreams, too. My natural gifts help me make up for a lot of it, though. Leo can be Father's pet and Raph can be the ball of 'roided rage, if it makes them happy.
... though I dunno about Raph.
I've said it once, and I'll say it again: God I LOVE being a turtle! My shell protects most of my squishy parts from becoming turtle soup candidates- when it comes to armor, it's better than store-bought, it's organic!
It's not invulnerable, but it can take a lot of damage before it starts cracking- I can even use it to deflect bullets... but that's kinda like a last resort kind of thing, because that *will* damage the shell *fast* and we don't exactly have replacements hanging around, you know? We can't retract inside them, either- because we're people-sized, and because of our guns. What guns? THESE GUNS!
(Arguing is heard)
Oh, shaddup Donnie. You have no sense of humor.
I'm not bragging when I say that I am Ninja- I specialize in stealth and deception, and I'm so good at it I can hide almost in plain sight. My hand-to-hand training in Okinawan kobudo has been excellent under Master Splinter, with a focus on my preferred weapon- the Nunchaku. While I'm a BEAST with the sticks, I'm also pretty dammed good at the Kama.
So, Master Splinter's training has turned us into world-class acrobats, right? Well, I've found ways to use THAT outside of the combat zone! My skateboard is my Silver, my muse, my transport to happier places- not only is my balance, like, insane, but since my body was conditioned to be this crazy flexible weapon, I can use it to do amazing stunts on it, too! My skateboarding skills give me a method for a quick getaway and fast transportation- and I don't mind showing off my some awesome flair while doing it.
We turtles are a tight, if occasionally dysfunctional family unit. We care for each other but we also get on our NERVES- Raph and Leo start doing that I Am More Alpha Than You, You Are A Disappointment To The Family thing, while Donnie can be a total geek and get lost in his inventions, even if you are TALKinG RIGHT NEXT TO HIM AND HAVE BEEN FOR THE LAST FIVE MINUTES HELLOOOOO DONNIE?
Still, at the end of the day, family comes first, and each one of us would die to keep each other safe. Now, as long as we can remember to keep that teamwork thing going, nobody should ever HAVE to, y'know?
Our home sweet home, below the streets of New York! Whenever we need to come back to lick our wounds or celebrate, we can always count on the cozy home Master Splinter has made for us. We've got a dojo, a place to sleep, watch TV, eat, and all sorts of things. It' our Sanctum Sancto-sanctum-it's our safe place, let's put it like that.
Dudes. Let's be honest here.
I'm a turtle. A walking turtle. A walking, talking turtle.
Unless I'm hiding (and you won't see me if I choose to!), I'm gonna attract attention. And even though there ARE mutants out there with outrageously awesome appearances like mine, we're still pretty much the minority here. We don't fit in, we don't blend in, and because we were actually animals first instead of human before we became mutants (with most mutants being the other way around), we don't really have identities in the real world past what Donnie can rig us with his hacky-hacky stuff, which (let's face it) is still no substitute for all of the things you're supposed to have when you have a birth certificate instead of a pet store certificate, know what I mean?
Leo is totally wrong. I'm NOT naive.
I just like to think everybody's got a good part inside of them, you know? Okay, so maybe sometimes it's hidden deep, deep, deep down inside, but it's gotta be there, right?
Unless they've had it surgically removed. Wait, can you do that? In any case, Yeah... I guess that a couple of times I've taken some people at face value when I probably shouldn't have, and I'm probably more likely to trust a human I really like with our 'secret.' But that's not necessarily wrong, right? We need allies and friends! So what if there are people out there who might take advantage of you? You can take a walk and maybe a building might fall on you because some supervillain decided to punch Superman in the daddybags and he accidentally set off a chain reaction with his super-breath, is that a reason to never go out, ever?
I admit it, I like to try out new things... and 'try' the things I like over and over! I like games, I love cool music, doing awesome tricks, tasting awesome food. Epicurus said, after all, that "Pleasure is our first and kindred good. It is the starting point of every choice and of every aversion, and to it we always come back, inasmuch as we make feeling the rule by which to judge of every good thing."
Whoa, too heady for you? Sorry. I DID tell you I liked to read, right?
So. You could say I am always very aware of the pleasures of the senses, and... well, I kinda lack focus. Don't tell Leo I ever admitted this, but I kinda get distracted easily by new or awesome things, and that can be a problem. I also get, like, SUPER excited about new and cool things I've discovered, and that can really get under my brothers' shells- especially Raph, Hoooooooobooooy especially Raph when he's in one of those moods like 'LEO SUCKS NOBODY UNDERSTANDS ME I'M GONNA BROOD WHILE PUMPING IRO-'
(Arguing is heard)
Okay, okay, I'm sorry! But it serves him right for insulting my color-coded fidget-spinner-shuriken idea-
Right. Fine. Okay.
See what I mean?
