    Major Story Arcs

    Benjamin Hargreeves, 00.06, was one of the seven special infants adopted and trained by Reginald Hargreeves. When he grew older he named himself the Horror. For a time, he continued to work with the rest of his 'family' in the Umbrella Academy.

    Benjamin was killed, by unknown means in unknown circumstances. A statue was put up for him in front of the Academy, but it was destroyed during the White Violin's rampage, and replaced with a statue of Pogo.


    Horror was able to channel interdimensional beasts through his body. These appeared as green tantacles of various lengths which emerged from his torso.
