Morganville native and owner of the Glass House, is Shane Collins' best friend and Eve Rosser's boyfriend, and though he seems to enjoy flirting with Claire; for the most part he thinks of her as a little sister.
He is 6'2 in height.
His grandfather, Sam Glass, is a vampire, but one with the best of intentions for the human residents of Morganville. After being attacked and left for dead by Oliver (who was attempting to turn him into a vampire, but failed) Michael is a "part of the house", meaning he is a ghost and cannot leave the house. To escape this, he is, after the events of The Dead Girls' Dance, turned into a vampire by Amelie. He likes to do a lot of dangerous things by himself throughout the series.
He is an amazing musician and in the book Kiss of Death he is offered a record deal, and a chance to leave Morganville. Michael it is revealed in Book 10 (Bite Club) he will soon marry Eve Rosser, his human girlfriend. He seems to not be comfortable of how a human and vampire can live together in marriage though. In Bitter Blood he kisses Claire Danvers and says to Eve and Shane "I have always wanted to do that"
