IMDB listings down below
  • Michael 'Nicholas' Drago was born June 3rd in Hell's Kitchen to Eileen Hannigan, a single mother with a noticable limp courteousy of Mike's father. Despite this, Mike's surname on the birth certificate took after his father's last name, Savio Carmine Drago.

.

  • Despite the angry protests of Mike's father, Eileen moved with her son out to Hoboken, New Jersey in the hopes of raising him in a slightly less violent and corrupt environment. Apparently she could not move any further than that. They lived on a small budget, using the income she got working as a hotel maid. Mike was kept mainly indoors, either in the apartment, at school, or with his mom at her jobs on the weekends with the occasional visit to the library for the primary source of entertainment.

.

  • When Mike was 10, Eileen stepped out of a first floor room she finished cleaning into the path of people who were busy robbing the hotel. The general belief is that she just happened to startle the more trigger happy of the two. A tragedy for sure.

.

  • With his mom gone and the rather absentee father denied custody as he was considered a bit unfit and really, there were limits to what even what crud the courts will do to a kid, Mike found himself being shipped back to New York, this time to live with his Aunt Fiona Hannigan. He also found himself being the target of an abnormally large amount of people wishing to start fights with him for no reason known to him. Fighting became practically a daily routine for him with little to no intervention from local law enforcement.

.

  • As he got older and more practiced, so did the opponents who kept coming out of the woodwork and his confidence in dealing with whatever problems that came with him grew, along with general disobedience. He started attending the nightlife around age 16 with the proper fake-ID in hand and generally started to have fun partying, fighting, and drinking.

.

  • It was a less than pleasant childhood, which was complicated by him having sleeping problems. Nothing mutant about it, his sleep cycles were just out of whack, giving more precedence to the REM sleep cycles than the deep sleep cycles. This continued for a bit until he was dragged to the doctor by his Aunt after his irritated, sleep deprived self went and got himself expelled from school. The doctor introduced him to the concept of sleeping pills to treat the disorder.

.

  • At age 18, Mike legally changed his last name to 'Hannigan' as an official $@^ you to his father. He found himself living on his own, working several low level jobs. One of which was a convenience store clerk position, which resulted in a stabbed arm by a would be robber. At the hospital he meets Rod Donovan.

.

  • Rod and Mike go out on the town for some underage drinking and run into Wade Shaw and Jack Mantley and hit things off. In their infinite drunken wisdom, they decide to start a band they dubbed 'Greysong'. When they sobered up, they realized they actually sounded good. Since their lives were pretty much crap anyways, they decided to go share a small studio apartment together and focus on music. After much debate amongst the members, and with Rob's convincing argument of 'He may be a shit father but that's a damn good name for the stage', Mike adopted a stage name of Nick Drago for performances.

.

  • After a few years of songwriting, recording demos, working bars, and developing a fan following, they get a call for a record deal from Golem Records.

.

  • After experiencing some promising sales of their debut album, 'Social Disease', three of the band members of Greysong head out to celebrate. Mike, although now of legal drinking age, stayed at the apartment due to some 'sleeping issues'. There was a little bit too much partying, and an unwise decision to drink and drive, resulting in a car accident which results in the deaths of two members, Jack and Rod.

.

  • While Wade stayed at the apartment, Mike slipped away from the public view, presumedly staying in Jersey as he worked through what happened. It was during this time of self pity that Mike happened to strike up a quasi friendship with a bartender named Leo DiBartenda at a hole in the wall establishment that didn't apparently get any business when Mike was in. At some point the topic went to regrets, and Mike had plenty. And then Leo posed the question: "If you could make things better, even a little, would you?" Mike replied in the affirmative and Leo gave him a drink on the house and a handshake.

.

  • Well, it turned out Leo was not your typical bartender and Mike had the equivalent of a 'Dream Travel for Dummies' book crammed in his head upon the older man touching his hand. Fortunately for him, Leo stuck around to explain what he did as well as give him some lessons on how to use the abilities he passed over to him. As for the why, "It had to be passed along and you're the best that I'm going to get coming in here." Perhaps a little insulting when you think about it, but Mike wasn't about to complain when he found out that this gift also helped with his sleeping issues.

.

  • After a year of living in Jersey, Mike returned to the public eye, Behavior toned down quite considerably and promoting an album he had been working on and using the record company he had a contract with to do it. The album 'Private Hell' has spurned some reaction in its content. Unlike Greysong's songs of party drugs and debauchery, the newer album delves deeper into harder styles and shifting to topics involving heavier drug use, death, violence, depression, and hints of derangement. Some believe that the album is more of a critique on the city of New York itself which has made some quite unhappy with the work. But, albums are selling and it is generating press.

.

  • Several months after Mike returned to New York after a lengthy tour, Mike was out bar hopping when he got a call from Wade, or what turned out to be his attempt to dial 911 but instead speed dialing the last number called. Over the connection, Mike could hear the sounds of Wade trying to reason with some house intruders. He managed to get home in time to stop Wade from getting any permanent injuries but not before the intruders got a few good licks in.

.

  • Angry at the invasion of his home and the assault on his friend, Mike sometimes finds himself playing superhero from time to time. But, he tries not to make a habit of it. Bills to pay, friend to keep watch over, tours, and stuff.

.

  • Along with the occasional guest appearance on TV dramas, Mike has been on several tours, two of which were in collaboration with other artists.

.

  • With the song 'Monster' from his his 'Breakout' album ends up getting adopted as an anthem for several 'anti-discrimination topic of choice' related protests, Mike's experiencing even more sales than usual. He goes on tour again.

.

  • After the first series of tours, Mike continues with the busy behavior as he portrays Dominic, an overly sarcastic vampire who views vampire fangirls as morons in a budding independent film turned cult classic, 'Life Bites!'
