- "Oh god Morgan, I... you surprise the hell out of me sometimes."
- – Mikhaila Ilyushin [src]
Mikhaila dreamed of exploring stars as a cosmonaut like her father once did, but had to leave those dreams behind as she was diagnosed to have a rare neurological condition, Paraplexis. When her father disappeared she did everything to find him, which led her to working aboard Talos I in hope of finding her father. She had to hide her disease from TranStar leadership to be posted aboard the station. She was in a brief relationship with Morgan Yu, who ended it before beginning Neuromod trials due to the possibility of the memory loss effects placing a strain on the relationship.
Prey (2017) Edit
Mikhaila appears seriously injured at the Power Plant. If the player saves her, she will make her way to Morgan Yu's office and remain there. The player will have 80 minutes upon contact with her to bring her medication, and she will die if the player goes to Talos I Exterior and returns without bringing her medicine.
After recovering and making her way to Morgans office, she reveals the reason she falsified her medical records and asked for Morgans assistance in finding info about her father. Should Morgan pursue this they will come to find out it was they who tested on and ultimately killed Mikhailas father. It is then up to them whether they delete the data, or keep it for her to listen to and learn the truth
In the after-credits scene, she appears as an Engineering Operator and she is the one that will give Alex Yu authorization to start over the simulation once player fails the game whether it was LGV 3.1 or 3.5 based on Dayo Igwe's judgement about player's Empathy Quotient. She will comment on him saving her with the medicine and letting her hear her father's message.
Personality and skills Edit
Ilyushin is a skilled system engineer, which granted her a position on Talos I. She was able to hide a listening device in a door sensor. Ilyushin deeply cared about her father and was willing to risk her own life in order to find what happened to him.
- Should Morgan decide to kill Mikhaila or let her die, they can loot the Ilyushin Family Ring from her body. This is a unique object in the game but it does not have any purpose whatsoever.
