Those unfamiliar with Michael Mamaril he died of cancer and a friend asked valve to make a eulogy for him with claptrap. Gearbox did this and went a step further putting him in Borderlands 2 he is supposed to appear in sanctuary each time you load into the place in a random spot. I have yet to find him.
Has anyone encountered him yet? He will give you a blue quality or better item upon speaking with him. Higher your level the better.. Reportedly this is working fine on PS3 and 360 but as of yet PC players have not encountered him. Now saying that the console players don't seem to be big on detail for this at what level or progression in the story did they first start seeing him, I am thinking that may be the issue. that or he is bugged.
UPDATE: All his locations, at least it is assumed this is all of them.

I found him. HE'S FREAKING AWESOME. (in the crimson raider HQ)
I got this cool shotgun for him. When it zooms in on a target, it locks on with a giant triangle. Granted, it's just a visual thing, but it's so damn cool. --- "Troy, we have to rise to the occasion like Ripley and kick monster butt in our undies" - Abed Nadir Steam/Origin - NoizeSeeker
well, i encountered him last night, and the only mission i have left is a dam fine rescue (completed all optional missions prior to that and that is the only mission i have left). so it might be as early as that, or even earlier.
PC seemed glitched. Majority never see him. 360 users get him 24 our of 25 times it seems.
Quoted For Truth!
But seriously, he is ridiculously hard to find on the PC version. I have looked for him about 50 times and I have found him once. Someone on the Gearbox Forums says that he was able to farm him 500+ times on the Xbox 360 version.
Makes me wonder which system has the "correct" spawn rate. I am kind of thinking that it is closer to the PC version. This leads me to believe that in a future patch Gearbox will "fix" the 360 version to a much lower percentage and all the 360 users will yell at the PC users for complaining in the first place and "ruining" their game. --- "Man how to people figure this stuff out?
