Five Hargreeves, initially identified as Number Five, is one of the forty-three infants who were all born on the 12th hour of the first day of October 1989 to mothers without any previous evidence of pregnancy. The baby was one of seven adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves with the goal of educating them to save the world.
Five possessed the capacity to time travel and wound up imprisoned in the future as an elderly lad, where he discovered that the planet was in ruins. He finally returned to The Umbrella Academy years later with a message that the world was scheduled to end in eight days.
After he fails to avert the apocalypse, Five finds himself transported to Dallas, on November 25, 1963, in the heart of another apocalypse. He swiftly realizes that this disaster is a direct result of him and his family altering time; once again he is obliged to create the Umbrella Academy to reduce the threat to humanity.

Upon returning to 2019, he and his family were astonished to hear that not only had they been replaced, but that their acts had led to a Kugelblitz, a black hole that would collapse all of space and time. After teaming up with the Sparrows, the universe was ultimately reset, leading to a reality where all of the Hargreeves, including Five, no longer held their powers.
Five (no other birth name known or used) was one of forty-three children born at once and one of Sir Reginald Hargreeves’ seven adopted children. Time-traveler and Umbrella Academy member. For decades, Five was unable to return to 1960 because he had traveled twenty years into the future and found himself in a post-apocalyptic wasteland.
It wasn’t long before the surgeons of the Time Aeternal implanted the DNA of serial killers and Five’s into him and “modified” him, making him a perfect killer with a 100% success rate and teaching him how to do micro jumps in time, making him exceedingly swift.
Five Hargreeves Personality
When Five was just 13 years old, she was sent back in time to see the horrific future. Upon his return, his body reverted to its 13-year-old state while his mind remained unchanged. His personality has become that of an elderly man, who is frustrated at being confined in the body of an adolescent.
He’s shown to be a genius intellectually, and he frequently dismisses others, including his own family, as ignorant or inferior. Additionally, he is proven to be sardonic, pragmatic, and highly self-centered. Despite Reginald Hargreeves’ warnings that he wasn’t entirely equipped to utilize his time-traveling skills, as a young kid, he shamelessly used them nevertheless, despite Hargreeves’ concerns.
It’s also been established that Five is an extremely ruthless assassin. With all due respect to those who have been slaughtered by him, it appears that he has no problem killing anyone, including innocents, who may be able to save the world from apocalypse, and even shows no remorse when forming plans to do so.

Killing many people on missions was part of his contract as an agent of the Temps Commission, which made him famous in his time as a Temps agent. Accordingly, Number 5 has proved himself to be more than eager to get rid of anyone who gets in his way. Despite his erratic conduct, he has a heart of gold and cares profoundly about his family.
He devotes his life to preventing the apocalypse both in the past and the future, and he appears to be the most devoted member of the family. He’s so afraid they’ll die that he won’t even include his own family. To preserve his family, he insists that the Temps Commission “renegotiate” his contract.
The more the series develops, the more he grows disillusioned with the idea of killing. On the condition that he does so to save his siblings, he agrees to the assassination of the Commission’s board of directors. After this massacre, he vows never to kill again, and he keeps his word, only defending himself or his family when necessary.
To avoid further tampering with the lives of his own family or those of his siblings, he vows in the third season to live a peaceful and retired life. Only when the possibility of yet another apocalypse arises does he feel compelled to return to work, and even then he believes that stepping back and accepting his fate is the best choice.
Who’s Abigail Hargreeves?
At the beginning of the season 1 finale, Abigail Hargeeves was first introduced. Several rockets are launched into the sky on what appears to be a farm on another planet in this strange picture from “far ago.” If Abigail and Reginald are married, it implies that they’re both aliens.
Reginald is asked to take Abigail’s violin with him on her deathbed and give it to someone else to treasure (of course, Viktor ends up being the recipient). She tells him, “Reggie, the world needs you.” What happened to the planet of Reginald and Abigail?
The Umbrella Academy may have been Reginald’s goal all along to build a universe-resetting machine and utilize his offspring as a source of energy to bring Abigail and their world back. Season 4 may contain the answers to such questions.
