- "It's a dangerous world out there."
Hazel is a time-travelling assassin. Partnered with Cha Cha, Hazel is assigned to prevent Number Five from stopping the apocalypse. Hazel is played by Cameron Britton in the Netflix adaptation of The Umbrella Academy.
Hazel is the partner in crime of Cha-Cha.
Hazel is a hitman, whose job is to keep the timeline safe and steady. He and his partner Cha-Cha are supposed to stop anything that isn't supposed to happen from happening. They ensure that everything will play out like it was meant to.
Hazel is also sucker for sugary treats. The duo of hitmen (who both wear cartoonish cat masks) are known for their love of delicacies, often taking time in-between their missions to feast on treats.
Hazel and Cha-Cha are trained hitmen who have carried out multiple murders. They live in and out of time, as they won't grow old.
Hazel first appears as a devoted professional and unrepentant killer. He has no inhibitions about torture or kidnapping and, along with his partner Cha-Cha, is willing to murder anyone, and everyone, who gets between him and his target. However, years on the road as a time- travelling assassin has lost it's novelty for Hazel and now he sees himself as just another working class slob; pounding the pavement, day in and day out, for the man. He's tired of always lugging his heavy suitcase from one motel to another and expresses frustration with the dwindling quality of his travel accommodations. He would much rather spend his time enjoying life's simple pleasures; like donuts, television, dancing, and arson.
As the first season progresses, the overworked, underappreciated, and enthusiastic Hazel starts to dream more and more of a simpler life. One where he can simply slow down and live his life at his own pace, living as he wants to live. He frequently toys with the idea of leaving behind the hitman life, proclaiming when watching HGTV that there's "beauty in the mundane." It later revealed that he has a crush on Agnes Rofa, the waitress at the donut place he frequents (Griddy's Donuts). He becomes infatuated with her peaceful demeanor and sunny outlook on life. He loves that she takes pleasure in simple things like bird watching, and making donuts, and he begins to care very deeply for her as a kindred spirit and, eventually, as a lover.
Powers and abilitiesEdit
Hazel is a professional hitman, a skilled hand-to-hand fighter, and gunslinger.
Although it's never outright stated in the series, it is strongly suggested he is superhuman. He was able to take on Luther in a direct fight, and shrugged off getting stabbed by one of Diego's knifes.
