|Examine||A member of Sigmund's H.A.M. splinter group.|
H.A.M. agent Michael is a character encountered during The Chosen Commander quest. Michael is amongst those radical members of H.A.M. that chose to ally themselves with Sigmund. He can be pickpocketed for Michael's letter during the quest.
Michael claims that he read a book titled "Manual of Monsters", in which all races are labelled with a simple "good" or "evil", most of the monsters being evil. He states that this is the reason he has chosen to destroy them all through H.A.M. However he also mentions that monsters have treasure and killing them would allow him to take this wealth which may act as a secondary motivation.
- He is referencing the book from Dungeons and Dragons named "Monster Manual" which in each edition describes every monster, their alignment (most of them are evil), and the treasure or loot obtained from killing them.
