For the Storybrooke character, see Michael Tillman.
In Hyperion Heights, Michael works as an executive director at the department for construction. He accepts a monetary bribe from Victoria Belfrey, who is looking to demolish the old Community Gardens in order to build new condos. To seal the deal, Michael agrees to meet with her at Hyperion Plaza where she will fulfill her end of their bargain. ("The Garden of Forking Paths")
The night before the meeting is set to take place, Michael gets drunk at Roni's bar and accidentally blabs to her about how much money he'll be making once he helps Victoria with a certain favor. The next day, Roni shares this with Rogers and Henry as they formulate a plan to corner Michael and make him confess. After Henry gathers intel about Michael's background and where he works, Rogers prints this information out before staking out a spot across the plaza to keep tabs on the suspect. At the plaza, Michael accepts an envelope from Victoria before heading to a restaurant for a meal. Rogers confronts him there and questions him about his involvement with Victoria. Michael denies having anything to do with her, to which Rogers pulls out the envelope from the latter's jacket and notes it contains quite a bit of cash. Rogers then arrests Michael, who is taken to the police station, however, Weaver lets him go with no charges. On Michael's way out of the building, he smirks as he passes by a confused Rogers. ("The Garden of Forking Paths")
