Mike is Branwen's cousin. Historically, Mike has been the worst of gamer guy stereotypes: misogynistic, bitter and hateful. He was widely known and despised for it. Over time and with the assistance of Davan and PeeJee, he has grown as a person into a less annoying version of himself.
Mike hasn't had good relationships with family members. According to Andy, Mike hated his mother even though he lived with her. His father died of cancer. He has an older brother, Detective Hank Dowden. He was a Boy Scout Troop Chaplin.
Mike is Catholic.
Mike serves the community in his superhero identity, the Pythagorean. He also works at Demaitre Comics, a comic book store.
