A career soldier, Mikhail is frequently unphased by the stresses of war and is always ready to greet any situation with boisterous laughter and insults. He frequenly advises his allies not to worry over any potential problems, showing a strong faith in his ability to handle any situation they might encounter.
Mikhail is frequently drunk, often carrying a liquor-filled flask with him wherever he goes. He is not above going into battle while inebriated, to the point of tying his flask to his cockpit frame, though it seems to have no negative effects on his ability to effectively pilot a mobile suit.
Mikhail is a big, rugged Russian who is a solid member of the Cyclops Team. During Operation Rubicon, Mikhail is used as a decoy as he flies his Kampfer across Libot so that Cyclops Team can divert attention from the Earth Federation's Libot base and steal/destroy Gundam Alex pending the outcome of their actions. Once Operation Rubicon fails, Mikhail is left to face off against RX-78NT-1 Gundam "Alex". Having exhausted his other weapons, one shotgun, two RPGs, and one bazooka, against the Grey Phantom's Scarlet Team, consisting of Mass-Produced Guncannons, GM Commands, and GM Sniper II, Mikhail turns on the building where Alex is. He used his second bazooka to destroy the roof, then fired his shotgun at the Gundam, but Alex evaded the first shot. The second shot did no damage due to the chobam armor. Mikhail tossed the shotgun, and headed for one of the trucks he parked earlier. Alex fired its vulcans, then drew its beam saber and pursued the Kampfer. Mikhail punched a hole in the truck, and grabbed the Mine-Chain inside. The explosion from the bombs engulfed Alex. Mikhail was shocked to see that the Gundam merely lost its exterior chobam armor and suffered minimal damage from the explosion. Mikhail then attempted to engage the Gundam in melee combat, but was killed by the Gundam's hidden arm-mounted gatling cannon, which tore through his Kampfer's thin armor and perforated him straight through the cockpit.
