"Mike Morton is the most popular guy in the traveling circus "Hullabaloo". After surviving the disaster, Mike Morton's only goal is to find the real killer who destroyed his home."
Overview[edit | edit source]
Mike Morton is a versatile survivor and can be very effective in rescuing and kiting. He was a former member of the Hullabaloo circus and one of its only survivors.
His bombs can be used to jump over map props like open windows, thrown pallets, and others. If used appropriately, the bombs will propel the player to a good location safe from the Hunter.
The Acrobat can also support other Survivors by distracting the Hunter with his different bombs and utilise their effects to slow down the Hunter or disable their abilities.
Each bomb has a separate function. The fire bomb manifests flames on the ground and on the hunter's body when used. It disables the Hunter's skills (eg. Bloody Queen's Mirror, Violinist's String; Blink, Peepers etc.). The nitro bomb manifests a white powder on the ground and frames the Hunter's screen with white powder when used. It reduces the Hunter's interaction speed (vaulting, trampling pallets etc.). The sticky bomb manifests a dark brown stain on the ground . It slows the Hunter's movement speed.
Background[edit | edit source]
An exuberant and cheerful man, he is a former member of the Hullabaloo circus and one of its only survivors. His only goal is to find the real killer who destroyed his home.
Mike’s birth circumstances are virtually unknown, however, at some point in his early childhood, he was taken in by a man named Bernard, whom he saw as a father figure. He was raised in Bernard's circus called "Hullabaloo" which is where he learned acrobatics and juggling. Bernard would often scold Mike for his mischief, such as wanting to put stones in his juggling balls. At some point, a bottle of strong acid was stolen from Mike; coincidentally, around the same time that Joker's face was burned. Bernard is implied to have suspected Mike of this crime, but Mike denies this, only mentioning buying another bottle of acid before Bernard finds out about this "mismanagement." Eventually, a disaster happens inside of the circus, leaving Mike and few other members alive out of sheer luck and the rest dead. After the deaths, Mike found that the only other survivors were a strange couple, one by the name of Natalie. Now desperate and having lost the only things that mattered in his life, Mike's only goal in life is to find the true murderer of those he cherished.
When the circus burned down, he had thought of giving a fate worse then death to whoever burnt it down. There are rumors it was Natalie, known as Margaretha Zelle, who burnt down the circus. Yet that is incorrect and it is not confirmed who did it, but Natalie did not.
External Traits[edit | edit source]
|Risky Acrobatics||The Acrobat carries 3 different types of Bomb around. When a Bomb explodes, it will temporarily change the ground's surface, creating a circular zone. Hunters stepping into this zone during the Aftereffect period will be affected by its effects, and thus returning the ground immediately to its original state.
Slightly reduces the Hunter's Movement Speed. If the Hunter is hit by the exploding Sticky Bomb or if the Hunter is repeatedly affected by Aftereffects within a short time, the Hunter's Movement Speed will be greatly reduced.
Slightly reduces Hunter's Interaction Speed. If the Hunter is hit by the exploding Nitro Bomb or if the Hunter is repeatedly affected by Aftereffects within a short time, the Hunter's Interaction Speed will be greatly reduced.
It can burn and disable all Hunter abilities for a period of time. If the Hunter is hit by the exploding Fire Bomb or if the Hunter is repeatedly affected by Aftereffects within a short time, all Hunter abilities will be disabled for an extended period.
