Act III. The DossierLikes
: Michelle likes clockwork efficiency, good communication and order over many things, mostly because her livelihood as a motel manager depends on it. Good results and profits are what she likes best as well, since it means she doesn't need to worry about not paying her staff, since she likes them as well and enjoys being in their company. She likes long, deep and meaningful relationships (platonic or romantic) with others that are filled with conversations, laughter and smiles than to the quickies people seem so obsessed to have these days in Burden City.
She loves her job the most of all, since it means she gets to help others and getting to meet new people and making new connections to them. She likes keeping herself busy with half a dozen endless jobs, enjoying using her elbow grease to get results of something. She also likes long winded stories from others or herself, either doing the talking or letting the other person do the tongue wagging. She mostly likes to do the talking but gives the other a chance if they feel like talking. Margaret Asher coming over to the motel with the new flowers, since it means she has an ear she can gab off to.Dislikes
: When people are rude, controlling or abrasive to her or her 'family' (the staff), which is one of her biggest dislikes. Swindlers, liars and counterfeiters as well, since they always
attempt to stick the bill on someone else when their time in the motel is up. When the motel or the staff is threatened in anyway, period. She also hates it when someone tries to make sexual advances on her simply because of her looks or they feel like she 'needs to get laid more'.
Michelle also does not being behind the bills and she has no money to pay for it. One of the biggest dislikes she doesn't like, one that rivals the controlling and abrasive people dislike, is when Luca is skulking around her motel or he tags along with Margaret when she makes a drop. Random sex in one of her motel rooms with one of her young employees does not tickle her funny bone in any fashion.Attitude
: She's a fair but firm woman that sticks to her ideals and decisions when she feels like they are justified, but she is willing to listen to others when she feels like the person is being logical and not emotion over what she had said or judged on. She is loyal to those who she feels like deserves it and had earned it. Michelle is a talkative woman but, surprisingly, is a good listener as well and is happy to give out advice after she's thought long and hard on it.
Michelle is a strong, tough and independent young woman who would rather die by her hand than let someone take that control from her. Even if she has to do it ala Saw
fashion, so be it. She has a good head tightly screwed on her neck, with a clear idea of what right and wrong is though she isn't afraid to turn a blind eye to it, especially if she feels like its for the best. Ends justifies the means is a favorite phrase of this girl. She is snarky and snappish from time to time, but she has good intentions and just wants the best for whoever she feels like needs/deserves/earns it from her.Habit/Twitch

: Michelle was born and raised in Burden City itself, specifically in Burden's Beginnings with her two, rather old parents in the year 1974. Born as an only child to two devoted and worried parents, she was educated and home schooled personally by them through her entire life till babyhood to her teenage years. They did this because they felt like it would be too dangerous for her to go to school in Burden City with the high crime rates. She left the nest when she was only 19-years-old in the year 1993 when she got a scholarship for college.
She was studying there for only three years, hoping to earn a degree in business, when she got a call from her mother. Her father suddenly died of a heart attack and her mother needed help running the motel. Reluctantly, she agreed and went back in the year 1996. Surprisingly, even for her, Michelle became attached to the place that was both her home and school. The staff welcomed her and she welcomed them as well, seeing that many of them were part of her childhood. Though she thought it would be horrible, Michelle ended up feeling more happy and content her than when she was away from home. She ran the motel successfully with her mother until 2004 when her mother died of old age. She now runs it by herself, needing no help.
In the year 2006, she befriended Margaret Asher
and they became close friends. She supported the other woman through her traumatizing year after her ordeal, often going by the flower shop to check on her just in case. When she learned of Luca Ludwig
; a known con man, and his courtship, she immediately opposed the relationship and tried to convince Margaret that Luca was too dangerous to be with someone like her. It ended miserably, her attempts at least, when the two ended up together. Reluctantly, she stopped her protests and just loomed over Luca like a pesky bug if he ever comes by her motel. She is still in Burden City, still in good terms with Margaret, running the motel with no aid whatsoever and thinking that life here, even with all the crimes and horrors, can be a good place to live if you work hard enough.
