Micah is the typical older brother — first-born, energetic, and ambitious. He is a reliable leader, a mover, and a shaker. But he is also a nurturer and a caregiver. When needed and without being asked, he takes over as a parent figure for Dana, and he pushes Nicholas to move his family to the East coast. His relationship with Nicholas reveals the essence of true brotherly love — where one is able to develop one's own talents, skills, and abilities and be supportive of the other. Micah is the Yin to Nicholas' Yang and together they form a whole.
