Michael Kaufmann is one of the secondary characters (usually an antagonist) in the Silent Hill series who has been in the series since from the start.
Dr. Michael Kaufmann is a middle-aged man whom is the director of
Medical Staff in Alchemilla Hospital in Silent Hill however he is
secretly also a Drug Dealer who works in Dahlia Gillespie's cult "The Order".
Michael is one of the first Silent Hill characters whom are the
"seemingly normal decent human being at first but then becomes a lot
more sinister later on" type as he keeps his nurse Lisa Garland
under control through illicit means. However over the course of the
storyline it is rather apparent that Dr. Kaufmann does not trust Dahlia
and his fate in the 1st game of the series can differ depending on how you play the game.
