Main Plot RoleEdit
The Head of the Obliviation Department, Micah is not exactly competent. He tends to have wild ideas that are less than helpful. It is his running at the mouth that resulted in the Ministry's decision to enforce arranged marriages. As a result, chaos in the wizarding world ensued as the Ministry of Magic began arranging marriages, with the condition that separations would be granted after the couples produced a minimum of two children together. The rationale behind this Ministry decision was that the wizarding population was dwindling severely in number, and that action needed to be taken to ensure their continued existence. Apparently, the Ministry decided to turn itself into an enforced dating service, and failure to comply would result in time spent in Azkaban prison. MIcah's running mouth inadvertently resulted in all of this.

"“Wait a minute. Hold the snitch.” He held his hands up as a man began poking about the office. “A miniature dragon?” Scrambling to his feet, he forgot about the unhappy woman who was also a victim of his clumsiness. “Like, something that breathes fire and eats people could be wandering around this office?” Oh, he should have checked his horoscope this morning, as it surely would have warned him to stay in bed until next Tuesday."- from "Working Hard or Hardly Working"
"Micah rolled his eyes at Xan’s food descriptions. He had heard it all before, and was not convinced. Sure, vegetables could be tasty, sometimes. And, he knew it was important to eat healthy, even if the young man did not often do so. But, vegetarians missed out on something vital. Bacon. How could anyone live without bacon? It was the most perfect food in existence, even better than tacos. While tacos were heaven on earth, bacon was just heaven. Surely Xan had to know what he had given up! There was no substitute for the salty crispness of bacon."- from "Cooking is a Manly Sport"
"Getting married. But, it was not supposed to be quite this way, was it? Slowly he began to realize that running his mouth and volunteering for an arranged marriage might not have been his smartest plan. In fact, it was right up there with the time he tried to drink cleaning solution as a kid so he could gain superpowers. It was a great theory, but the execution never worked quite as well as he had planned. He had certainly not planned on a screaming witch. Then again, no one ever plans on a screaming witch."- from "What a Nightmare!"
Straightening up, he shot his friend on stage a wink. He needed to learn to play it cool among crowds and other people. It was one thing to act the fool with Xan, but Micah was apparently an adult, or something like that. - from "Auction of the Delectable Singles"
