Mike is Bloom's adoptive father. He found Bloom as a newborn baby trapped in a burning building. He rescued and later adopted her with his wife, Vanessa. He loves Bloom and thinks of her as his "little girl", much to Bloom's dismay. Mike worries about Bloom at times, but he always gives her his support. Mike provides a comic element in the series, as he is often shown in the more humorous situations throughout many episodes.

Appearance

Mike has light blonde hair. He wears a light blue short-sleeved collared shirt, and dark blue jeans.

His firefighter uniform mostly consists of gray long sleeved jacket and pants with yellow stripes, his helmet is the same color as well.

Mike's pajamas are light-green long sleeved, buttoned shirt with long pants.

He wears a white turtle neck underneath a red v-neck sweater, brown pants and boots.

At the beach, he is seen wearing a yellow colored t-shirt, a hat, teal shorts and sandals.

Personality

Mike is a very protective person. He will not tolerate those who try to harm his family. He also had some issues when it came to magical beings and realms, seeking a more logical approach instead. Though, eventually he accepted them and when Bloom left to go to Alfea, Mike and Vanessa always had their arms open for her, always with her no matter what.

He is just as caring and understanding, for example, when Oritel was having issues with Bloom after being absent for most of her life, Mike provided insight to what she had gone through, which cleared up some of the misunderstandings.

Mike also seems to have bad luck, this is especially shown in Season 4. For instance, he accidentally shaved a large portion of his hair off due to being startled by Musa suddenly playing her music at max volume or getting stuck waiting for the bathroom to the point of urgency, and then missing the chance to go to the bathroom. He also does not like it when his property is damaged, such as when Stella and Musa were trying to blast at a large spider during Diana's rage, and they kept missing which blasts large holes into Mike's home; he calmly, with slight but noticeable irritation, asked the girls to at least try to miss his house.

While he is selfless and kind, Mike does not have very high tolerance. Shown when the Winx (although he loves them) were starting to get on his nerves since staying at his home after arriving on Earth to find Roxy.
