Michelle Haas is a former Murkoff I.T specialist who was one of the many women at Mount Massive to experience false symptoms of pregnancy. The Pauls visit her and her assistant Waylon Park to investigate an anonymous complaint. She advises them to visit Richard Trager, since he could have access to onion routing. Later, Michelle was in the process of having her security clearance revoked so she could leave Murkoff when Trager interrupted the meeting. He called the Pauls liars and then stabbed Michelle in the abdomen with a pair of scissors. This event revealed that her pregnancy was psychosomatic.
