Mike Ross is a popular character on Suits. He has a photographic memory. He was kicked out of university for selling a test to the daughter of the Dean. He smoked a lot of weed. His friend Trevor talked him into delivering a suitcase full of weed to his client. That turned out to be a police sting and Mike, in an attempt to escape the cops ended up at interviews for Pierson Hardman. He managed to impress Harvey Specter and got a job at the firm as an associate, despite never finishing college and not having a law degree.
By far, the most popular slash pairing is Mike/Harvey, though there are some Mike/Trevor fics out there (that pairing though is more common as a past relationship, on the road to Mike/Harvey). On the het front, the most popular one is Mike/Rachel, with Mike/Jenny a close second. There are also threesome ships with Mike: Mike/Harvey/Donna, Mike/Harvey/Rachel and Mike/Trevor/Jenny
