Michael Afton (also known as Eggs Benedict, Mike Schmidt, Foxy Bully and The Brother) is the son of William Afton and the brother of the Crying Child from the fourth game and Elizabeth Afton. He is the Manager and Owner of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza Place.
In Five Nights at Freddy's 4, Michael Afton is seen wearing a grey shirt, blue shorts, and a foxy mask (used to scare his little brother).
In the four secret Custom Night minigames of Sister Location, Michael Afton's pre-scooped appearance is shown and reveals that his purple skin color is only there as a result of decaying due to his body being technically dead.
His background is mostly told via silent actions within retro-graphics, or by reading between the lines throughout the games. Between his minigame presence and piecing together information gleaned from the phone calls as well as the posters in Five Nights at Freddy's, the community has been able to piece together some information about Michael. He seems to have good intentions but has ended up on the dark side of the story due to his father's actions.
In Five Nights at Freddy's 4, Michael Afton is seen to be a sadistic and manipulative trickster, who never cease to abuse emotionally and psychologically his brother. He seems to have no care about his brother's depression, as he torments him even in his own room. However, he is extremely remorseful for his actions as he came to his little brother's bedside, apologizing for his actions.
Michael Afton's motives for his actions after Sister Location is to fix his father's actions and set the children's spirits free. He is seen to be more than willing to let the scooper take out his innards and Ennard to take control of his body.
In Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator's ending, it's suggested that Michael doesn't want to leave, although there was a way out for him, and allows the fire to consume and kill him.
