Mikhail is a wandering violinist, and is passionate about music. He's a shy and private person, and it may take some time to get to know him. Mikhail seems to really enjoy nature and spends a lot of his time on the mountain and outdoors.
He will not appear in your game until the 7th of Fall during the first year. Upon his arrival, the mayor will bring him to your house in the morning to introduce you to him and explain that he is here for the upcoming Musical Festival. He will live at Town Hall of whatever town the player is currently living in. Mikhail will leave every Summer to some other place with cooler weather, but he will always return the following Fall season.
