A group of survivors took refuge at his motel during the Raccoon City Destruction Incident. During their time there, Mickey was attacked by a t-Virus-infected creature and his belly torn open. The attacker(s) did not kill him, and he transformed into a zombie.
Mickey has the following Stats:
- Movement speed similar to that of Jim
- Average vitality (between 2000 and 2500)
- Weak attack power similar to that of Yoko Suzuki
- High infection rate of 1.43% per minute
- It is left unspecified as to what attacked Mickey, but there are two likely suspects which would all depend upon where his body/zombie was supposed to be found. Early screenshots of the motel feature zombies in some of the rooms. If he were killed inside the motel, this would be his most likely assailant. If he was to be killed outside, it may have been a zombie dog as one of the early trailers features some wondering around outside the motel.
