“Something is wrong with me. I should be dead. But I'm not. I've been living in shadows. There is only one thing left for me to do now. I'm going to come find you.”
Michael Afton (also nicknamed as "Eggs Benedict" by the HandUnit) is the protagonist of Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location, and is implied to be the protagonist of Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator. He is believed to play a central role in the series. He is the son of Fazbear Entertainment's co-founder and serial killer William Afton.
At first, as is common with other protagonists in the Five Nights at Freddy's series, little to nothing of Michael was shown. In the game's real ending, the reflection of a simple, black silhouette in a dirty mirror is all that can be seen. In the Custom Night minigames, it's seen that he has a fairly light skin tone, dark brown hair that seems to be combed over, and blue eyes. He also wears a purple long sleeved-shirt, blue pants and brown shoes.
Like his father William, he appears to have a elongated smile, although it appears more friendly and warm, rather than his father's sadistic and unnerving smile.
After being reanimated and becoming a living corpse, he appears to be physically dark purple due to his skin rotting. He also seems to have lost his nose and almost all of his bottom and front teeth. His eyeballs seem to be missing from his now dark and empty sockets. The only sign of life from them is the two small white illuminating pupils, similar to the ones the animatronics sometimes possess.
Initially, very little was known about Michael, aside from the fact he was the technician hired to take care of Circus Baby's Entertainment and Rental and its animatronics. He returned to his job every night of the week despite the danger, which HandUnit mentions, implying that he is brave. This is further shown in the Fake Ending, when Ennard breaks into his house. In spite of that, he continued to eat his popcorn unfazed by this revelation. He also seems to enjoy watching soap operas and dramas like "The Immortal and Restless", as he spent all the nights watching the program and even made popcorn for the event. He is shown to be a friendly and popular person, as all his neighbors happily wave to him in the end-of-night minigames.
In his monologue in the Custom Night cutscene, Michael reveals that he was hired on his father's request to find and free his sister Elizabeth, implying that he was close to her before her death and has deeply missed her. He also seemed happy when saying Elizabeth was "free now", further showing his affection for her. He speaks in a rather gentle, yet brooding tone of voice in stark contrast to his father's more sinister tone of speaking. Michael also shows sadness at the fact that he is now a monster unable of being seen in public, forcing him to hide in the shadows. Michael could potentially seek revenge against William due to his actions, as he vowed to "come find him". This could mean that he wanted to kill him. It's suggested that Michael carried a large amount of guilt, due to the fact that his own father caused the horrific events that led to the loss of so many lives. His guilt could be the reason why he feels that he personally needs to finally put an end to his father's horrible legacy. This shows that Michael is a very virtuous person and always looks to do the right thing.
In the Survival Logbook, Michael is shown to be sarcastic, making various comments about Fazbear Entertainment's lack of safety or care for its employees. The book also shows that Michael is paranoid while on the job, suggesting he sleeps with one eye open. When asked why he wanted the job on page six, he states its for the free pizza, implying that his reasons for working are fairly simple. He also seems to enjoy snacking on food, which is shown later on in the book, where he expresses that eating increases his happiness. When asked what he would like for his end of the week bonus, he circles the money basket with emphasis, meaning that like anyone else, he would've rather had a basket of cash than any other meaningless prize, showing Michael has his priorities straight and is a responsible person.
There are multiple scribbles in the book drawn by Michael, implying that he enjoys drawing and is extremely talented at it. It's implied in the book that Michael is an extremely hard worker who is desperate for cash in order to make ends meet, which is why it's also stated that Michael desires to take a tropical vacation. Michael may or may not have a flair for business in Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator, as his choices are influenced by the player. It's seen in the book that Michael has a very bad habit of chewing bubble gum, implying that he is a very anxious person who gets quite stressed at times. however, Michael states he wants to get this habit under control. He also may be annoyed by incompetence, as in the logbook, he shows frustration that he is the only one fazed by the unsettling occurrences on the job.

|"Father. It's me, Michael. I did it. I found it. It was right where you said it would be. They were all there. They didn't recognize me at first, but then... they thought I was you. (Heavy sigh) And I found her. I... put her back together, just like you asked me to. She's free now. But something is wrong with me. I should be dead. But I'm not. I've been living in shadows. There is only one thing left for me to do now. I'm going to come find you. [ominous voice] I'm going to come find you..."|
