The Maverick (enemy)
After learning that Aubrey has stolen the Photo Album, Sunny and Kel decide to interrogate each member of the Hooligans for Aubrey's whereabouts. Once Angel and Charlene are dealt with, the boys head over to Faraway Plaza, only to find Mikhael charming his "admirers" nearby the fountain at Faraway Plaza.
Kel askes him where Aubrey is but he refuses to answer unless they fight him, which leads to the realization that the "date" he had was simply him paying his "admirers" ten dollars to hang out with him.
