Mike Faber is a Major in the U.S. Marines and a friend of Nick Brody. During Nick's eight-year absence, Mike started a relationship with Nick's wife, Jessica, which ended when Nick was rescued.

Nick later discovered the affair and briefly separated from his wife and ended his friendship with Mike. However, Brody later returned to his wife and had been asked to run for Congress. Brody fixed his friendship with Mike and forgave him, also asking him to persuade Jessica to let him run for office.

Mike agreed and asked Jessica to consider it, which upset her. During these events, an old friend of Mike and Brody by the name of Thomas Walker returned to the United States as a terrorist. He assassinated Elizabeth Gaines as a distraction for Brody to assassinate the Vice Presient, but Brody failed. Brody killed Walker as a test of loyalty to Abu Nazir.

Brody later got Jessica's approval, ran for Congress and won. Mike became suspicious of the events surrounding Walker's death and asked Brody to use his Congressional power to look into it for him. Brody agreed.



At some point in time, Mike married a woman named Megan. (Pilot)
