Featured In The Rithmatist

Michael is a student at Armedius Academy on the isle of New Britannia.[1]

Appearance and Personality[edit]

He has blond hair.[1] He is privileged, and does not like being reminded that he is not a Rithmatist.[1] He is flirtatious with female students, including Eva Winters and Mary Isenhorn.[1]


Michael attended Armedius Academy at the same time as Joel Saxon. Michael was the son of a knight-senator and was thought of as an important person on the Armedius campus, since he would one day become a knight-senator himself.[1] He was also well-known for the large parties that he held at his summer home in the north.[2]

Joel tutored Michael in math after class; Michael hoped to attend law school after the Academy.[1][2] The two of them got along well and sometimes hung out together at school.[1] Joel often talked to Michael about Rithmatics, but Michael was uninterested. He barely understood how Rithmatics worked and expressed disdain for the Rithmatic students, although he was curious about the true state of affairs at the Tower of Nebrask.[1] Like many people, he questioned Joel's obsession with Rithmatic theory given the fact that he could not become a Rithmatist himself.[1] Because of Joel's low social standing, Michael did not invite him to his summer party.[1]
