Biography

Making his first appearance in 1976 as a Cockney businessman with an eye for the ladies, Mike is well-known for his string of ruined relationships. During his time on the show, Mike had 25 girlfriends and four wives.

Mike's father was Frank Baldwin, a former docker and cockney wideboy.

He impregnated florist Maggie Dunlop, but the relationship was not serious, and she left him when he refused to buy the florist's she worked in. She married Harry Redman shortly before the birth of her son Mark. The Redmans moved away and Mike didn't see his son again for many years afterwards.

His first main (and perhaps biggest) storyline came in 1983 when he had an affair with Deirdre Barlow, a bored housewife living on Coronation Street. Before her marriage to Ken Barlow, Deirdre had been Mike's girlfriend, but she had decided Ken suited her better. When she confessed everything to Ken, Mike turned up on the doorstep ready to whisk Deirdre away, only for her to decide to stay with Ken and give her marriage another go. This event turned Mike and Ken into sworn enemies.

Mike went on to marry the much younger Susan Barlow (Ken's daughter), upsetting Ken further. Their marriage seemed cosy, but he was intending for her to be a housewife, and she was a career woman. When she became pregnant, Susan disliked the life she saw ahead of her and she told Mike she had terminated her pregnancy before moving to Newcastle after just a year of marriage.

His on/off relationship with Alma Sedgewick looked over when he married wealthy widow Jackie Ingram instead, but the bride realised that Mike only wanted the money and factory that she had inherited from her late husband, Peter (who ironically died of a heart attack while shouting at Mike), and their marriage lasted just a week, Jackie threatening Mike with a shotgun if he didn't get out of her sight.

A couple of years later, after almost breaking up, Mike and true love Alma finally married. Mike ran his business, the underwear factory Underworld, and Alma ran Jim's Cafe with Gail Platt; their marriage hit rocky patches at times. As his business went through a rough patch in 1998, Mike slept with Julia Stone, who turned out to be a former prostitute, and blackmailed him for large sums of cash. Long-suffering Alma finally found out the truth, and walked out on Mike; upon divorcing him, Alma reverted to her maiden name of Halliwell.

Mike was soon wooing others, and settled with loud-mouthed machinist Linda Sykes, who was half his age. His son, Mark Redman, turned up in Weatherfield, and he took him on at the factory as manager. This proved wrong as, on his wedding night, Mike found out that Mark and Linda had been sharing a steamy affair. He forgave Linda, but told Mark to get out of his life. He duly left town.

Mike's fourth marriage didn't last long, though, as cracks began to appear. Mike enraged a jealous Linda by choosing to spend some days with his ex-wife Alma, as she was dying. He was with her as she died from cervical cancer. At this point, he knew that it was a mistake marrying Linda and that he loved Alma all along, and it was too late. He called Linda a tart, and claimed that she had married him only for his money, ending their marriage. Linda then slept with Mike's new business associate in revenge. She also caused a stir at Fred Elliott's wedding to her mother, Eve, and the pressure built on Mike as Mark reappeared for the celebration. Mike was spotted fighting with Linda, who disappeared. Mike was arrested on suspicion of murder and gained a few stalkers in the Sykes clan. Linda was later found living in Ireland with a new man.

In 2001, Mike's first wife, Susan, returned to Weatherfield to build bridges with her estranged father, Ken. It was revealed that she had a son, Adam, by Mike. The truth was that she hadn't terminated her pregnancy as she said, but had made this up in order to escape Mike. As Mike began a fight to gain access to his son, Susan made efforts to escape him once more, but in her haste to leave, she crashed her car on the motorway and was killed. Adam survived the crash and this led to a custody battle between Mike and his nemesis Ken. Adam was awarded to Mike, although he was returned to Scotland to go to a boarding school.

In 2004, Mike was joined by his nephew Danny, and his wife, Frankie, and their children, Jamie and Warren, and in the last week of October 2005, viewers discovered that Danny was actually Mike's son, a result of a fling between Mike and his sister-in-law, Viv (some longtime viewers did not like the addition of Danny and Frankie to the cast; Mike had long been portrayed as an only child and, adding confusion, Mike's father was also named Frankie).

Towards the end of 2005, Mike was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease - an unusual occurrence in a man of 63. He soon split from his girlfriend Penny King (the widow of a fellow factory owner) and became estranged from Adam, who has left Weatherfield. His son Danny has engineered sole inheritance of Mike's empire, egged on by his girlfriend Leanne Battersby.

Mike's last episode was aired on 7th April 2006. He had been admitted to hospital with pneumonia, but escaped when Jamie left his side for a moment. Making it back to his factory in Coronation Street, he was found by his old rival Ken Barlow. Shortly afterwards, he collapsed and died in Ken's arms, after suffering from a massive heart attack. He was 64 years old. His passing - like that of Alma, in 2001 - was respected with the theme tune not being played over the credits, however there was still a continuity announcement made.

His last words were 'You're finished Barlow, Deirdre loves me, she's mine.' Over the last few months of his life, he had been confusing retrospective and the present day, e.g. Alma Halliwell, his beloved ex-wife who had died in 2001, was often mentioned, and so was Bet Gilroy because he accidentally broke in to her old house in 2006 to be confronted by a surprised Les Battersby-Brown. He had also asked Rita Sullivan how her husband Len was - he had died more than 20 years before.

Mike, demonstrating "A Very Simple Dance"

Mike appeared on Sesame Street, beginning in 1989. A teenager, he worked part-time at the Fix-It Shop. He was also a good friend of Gina. Mike also appeared in the video Dance Along!

Mike was one of Gordon's students. In episode 2782, when Telly Monster follows Gordon to school, he watches Gordon teaching a high school science class about volcanos. Mike seems eternally hungry -- Gordon chides him for eating in class, telling him to save his sandwich for lunch; Mike replies that he brought another sandwich for lunch. Later, he says that the volcano film made him hungry, because the fire reminded him of a barbecue.

Mike also appeared in one Sesame Street skit at a carnival working at a game stand where Maria and a boy named Travis were his two customers.

Mike departed the street in 1991. To some extent, his role as genial teenager, an intermediate figure between the kids and the adults, is now being filled by Miles.

Description

Very little is known of Mike. Unlike most protagonists in GTA Advance's contemporaries, Mike does not have any early background, or any additional appearances in other games. It is only known Mike has intentions to leave Liberty City for good with his associate Vinnie, an initial plot point in GTA Advance's storyline.

In the beginning of the game, the two had earned enough money to leave Liberty City, but Mike was coaxed by Vinnie to take a few more jobs from the Mafia before leaving. After Vinnie was thought to be killed by a car bomb, Mike attempted to trace the killer, while attracting negative attention from all gangs in the city. It becomes apparent to Mike that Vinnie was still alive and was responsible for killing several of his bosses, as well as this he was intending to leave with Mike's share of the money. With this in mind, he killed Vinnie. Mike eventually escapes the city with a private aircraft owned by Cisco, Mike's deceased ally and leader of the Colombian Cartel.

It possible the "Mafia" that Mike and Vinnie work for is The Forelli Family as an early mission sees the two going to meet with the Mafia in Marco's Bistro.

Mike is a SPARTAN-II and member of Gray Team. He is an expert with technology and computers.

Contents

History

Early Life

In 2517, he was kidnapped from his home and taken to Reach. He was then conscripted into the SPARTAN-II Program. Even though he was only six years old, he learned to fly a Pelican dropship just by watching the pilot fly him into camp. He stole one, and flew it alone, subsequently blowing it up when the UNSC pursued him. Afterwards, he met Adriana-111 and Jai-006 to form Gray Team.[1]

In 2525, with the rest of the SPARTANs, he underwent augmentations to enhance their abilities. He made it through the process as one of the 33 out of 75 SPARTAN-IIs to survive.

Human-Covenant War

During the Human-Covenant War, Mike and the rest of Gray Team were sent deep behind enemy lines to wreck havoc on both the Covenant and Insurrectionists. Mike flew Gray Team's Prowler, the Petya. When they discovered the Rubble, Mike believed that if the Rubble turned out to be a threat, they should destroy it with their complement of Shiva-class Nuclear Missiles.[2] Shortly afterward, the AI Juliana made its presence known.

"At least we're both making friends out here. Shame Jai lacks the social knack..."
—Mike after forming a plan with Juliana

When the UNSC Midsummer Night arrived in the system, it was under attack by multiple Insurrectionists. He correctly came to the conclusion that he could not save the Midsummer Night from all the ships, but shortly afterward Juliana informed Gray Team that she could. She sent the coordinates of Ignatio Delgado's location to Mike, and ordered them to keep Delgado protected and she would help free the Midsummer Night crew[3]. Mike knew that the Kestrel was in-system, though, and Gray Team first overtook the Kestrel, using an EMP bomb that Mike designed.[4]

Mike continued piloting the Petya, following the Distancia. He survived the Battle of the Rubble and Battle of Metisette, and later, when being debriefed at Falaknuma, planned to ask for (or steal) a Prowler, which he was provided with. As of 2552, he was still fighting the Covenant, too far behind their lines to report back to Reach. However, Frederic-104 mentioned Gray Team to be missing since 2551.[5]

Personality

Mike was a technical prodigy: he could use any device with expertise after watching it being operated only once. He could also design many tools, such as the EMP bomb used to disable the Kestrel. For his high level of technical intelligence, Mike became a friend to Juliana. He had a rather brash view of life, and enjoyed taking risks simply for the sake of taking risks. He also had a joking nature.

Trivia

  • Mike seems to be careless about any ship he has; according to ONI Officer Hadley, Mike and his team always requested a new ship for every mission, only to lose it in almost every one.
  • Mike is one of the few Spartans to have a joking nature.

Mike 「マイク」 is a TV director and Chazz Princeton's sponsor as the Pro Duelist, "Ojamanjyome." He only cares for ratings, however, and will often fix duels in order to please the audience. He engineers Chazz's loss to Jaden Yuki in order to make the public laugh, and later attempts to create publicity for Chazz by having him defeat Aster Phoenix; he rigs their duel by stealing Aster's best card, Destiny End Dragoon. Jaden ruins Mike's plans by exposing him in front of the audience and throwing Destiny End Dragoon to Aster; Chazz wins the duel fairly. Mike is taken away by the Senrigen Group.
