|Behind The Scenes|
|First Appearance||The Black Cat Doesn't Have a Dream of the Star...|
Professor Pavlichenko was married to a Japanese woman, Asako Nakimiya, with whom he had a son and daughter. His son, Shion, became a Contractor two years before the start of Darker than Black: Gemini of the Meteor due to a meteor shower which consequently happened during the events of Darker than Black: The Black Contractor.
Part in Story Edit
At the outset of the second season, he is living with his son and daughter while working on unknown experiments concerning Contractors. His research project is hinted by Shion to be called "ME." However, before anything else is uncovered, he is seemingly killed by an adult man of Asian origins who wore a mask similar to BK-201 (Hei). However, despite Suou accusing him of killing her father, Hei makes the bizarre and mysterious claim that he was dead before he even arrived. However, he is revealed by an agent of the KSB to have somehow survived his electrocution, handing Repnin several photos of him taken in Tokyo, close to the site of Hell's Gate, and he is next seen talking with Shion in the same aquarium he and his family visited several years prior. Repnin also makes mention of Mikhail's research, stating that it threatens to put him and Contractors out of business, though in what way is unknown. He also later bears witness to Shion's killing of Tanya.
He later appears in the Sunshine Aquarium, where Suou travelled to after Asako's revelation to see if her memories were real or not. She is surprised, having thought him to be dead, but Mikhail affirms that the professor that died was a copy. Suou asks if she is a copy, and he is startled at Suou coming to know that information. When Suou explains that she learned it from her mother, he displays a small degree of annoyance with Asako, before telling Suou that, despite what she is, a female copy of Shion created by him, with differences, after the meteor incident, and having ME implants, she is alive. Afterwards, they run into Genma Shizume, who attempts to convince them to come along quietly. Mikhail retorts by warding him off with pistol fire, and the three escape towards another building. However, a Contractor mortally wounds him by severing a vital artery in his leg with a spear formed from wind. Suou attempts to stop the bleeding with a torn-off portion of her shirt, but, after Suou's confrontation with Genma, he dies from his wounds, but not before having a final conversation with Suou. Suou then lies his corpse in a dignified pose, and places an origami sculpture atop it before leaving. He later reappears in the alternate world Shion created.
