The central protagonist of the story. Through a series of unlikely events, Mitchell is thrust into an underground world in search of his younger brother Chase.
Mitchell is a cool headed but naturally pessimistic 15 year old. He is good at handling responsibility when he applies himself, but reluctant to take it due to his inherent laziness. Mitchell often has trouble hiding his disdain for negative situations, as shown through his often snide remarks.
Although having no special powers or training to help him on his journey, Mitchell’s improvisational skills and (generally) good luck allow him to accomplish his goals. Armed with his wits, a shovel and whatever else he can rummage up, he is determined to find his brother no matter what the cost.
