Early Life Edit
Vinson was a serial killer. According to Miles Shaw, he kept his victims' hands and feet as mementos. At one point he was caught, and he was one of the prisoners sent on the Eligius IV to an Asteroid Mining Penal Colony.
Throughout the Series Edit
In Shifting Sands, Charmaine Diyoza asked Dr. Abigail Griffin to examine him. When Marcus Kane questions why Vinson is wearing a shock collar, Diyoza explains that Vinson has trouble controlling his "more primal urges". Diyoza then hands the collar remote to Kane. A bit later, Diyoza notices that Vinson has picked up a scalpel. She tells him to put it down and shocks him until he drops it. As she leaves, Diyoza tells Abby and Kane, "Keep your hands and feet away from his mouth and you should be fine."
In How We Get to Peace, Abby examines him. She discovers one of the abscesses burst open due to the sound waves. She gets an idea to use sound waves to treat him but she requires more power. Vinson gets up and he accidentally scares Abby. He then gets dressed and goes and retrieves one of the mining drills, however Abby says they need an engineer. Vinson goes to retrieve Raven Reyes in the church. Miles Shaw tries to stop Raven from going with him, but she goes anyway. After Raven increases power on Abby's machine, Abby successfully treats Vinson.
In Sic Semper Tyrannis, he is in the building being used as doctors' office spying for Abby and Diyoza. He alerts them that Paxton McCreary is coming. Diyoza tells Vinson to hide the machine and himself, he does. He then pretends to come in the front door when McCreary threatens Abby and Dioyza and asks if he is too early for his check-up and McCreary leaves.
In The Warriors Will, he helps Abby get her pills so that she doesn't die from withdrawal symptoms. However, the guards find out that he obtained the pills that McCreary confiscated and Vinson kills them brutally while Abby watches.
In Damocles (Part 1), he is first seen watching Abby and Kane talk in the gas station through a window. After Abby leaves, he walks into the building and confronts Kane. Kane proceeds to tell him that Abby is gone. Michael tells Kane that he is here to see him. He then attacks Kane, stabs him five times in the stomach with a scalpel and bites Kane's neck, Abby then arrives with the shock collar remote and brutally shocks Michael to death.
He was very polite and reserved, but underneath that he was a serial killer who couldn't control his urge to kill. He was also very smart.
Physical Appearance Edit
Vinson is tall and strong. He has very short blonde hair, almost bald. He also wears rectangle black glasses.
He felt a weakness for Abigail Griffin. He killed two Eligius prisoners to give her pills. He wanted her to be addicted to the drugs, comparing it to his need to kill. He did not like her closeness to Marcus Kane and decided to attack him in the hopes Abby will go back to pills. Kane eventually died from his injuries, but was resurrected into a new body using Mind Drive technology.
