Well, I wouldn't go that far. Mical's okay, but he can be pretty annoying, both because of his blue-eyed and naive idealism, which makes even Superman look like cold and calculating tactician, and because it carries over to how he expresses himself whenever he opens his mouth. For someone who claims to understand the failures of the jedi, he sure does spout jedi propaganda rather a lot...
But I don't hate him. I just understand why others might.
And yes, the male Exile DOES remember him, meaning he was a "disciple" to the male Exile in his early days also.
