The Umbrella Academy is a private academy founded by Sir Reginald Hargreeves in order to train the seven children he adopted in 1989. To the untrained eye, the academy is merely a residential building, however below the surface Hargreeves taught the children how to harness their supernatural abilities to protect the world from evil.
The Umbrella Academy is also a term used to describe the group formed by the seven residents of the physical academy. All members — except Vanya — have tattoos of umbrellas on their wrist.
