Character Biography

MICHAL is the daughter of Saul and of a former concubine. She marches to the beat of her own drum, is a romantic at heart, and wants to marry for love rather than political considerations. Yes, she’s naïve and idealistic, but she’s also bold, adventurous, and willing to stand up for her opinions and for the rights of others.

Michal is very close to her family, particularly her father. She wishes she could settle his mind from the storms of war strategy and royal politics, and thinks situations can be resolved peacefully. But in a world fraught with violence and danger at every turn, will her idealistic compassion get her into trouble down the line?
