The Johnsons

MIKE (Tim Balme)


TIM BALME plays MIKE, whose God-like power is derived from ULLR, the God of skill, hunt and duel.

As the eldest Johnson brother, Mike has been the de facto father since he was 21 and has brought up his younger brothers in the absence of both parents.

Having been freed of the shackles of his marriage, Mike is overcompensating wildly in his manly task of making up for lost time.
