Michael Cropper was born in 1976 to Carl Cropper and Jo-Ann Cropper in an American community. The Cropper's are quite a rich family, but still sent Michael to a state school where he met Carol. The two hated eachother at first, but after a few months, the two learned to love eachother and married in private. Several years later Christopher was born.
Carol and Mike weren't the best parents. They neglected Christopher for weeks and didn't feed him in right amounts, causing him to be the person he is today.
