I was thinking about the Umbrella Academy and I thought to myself “Wow this reincarnation of Percival really is shitty” and my brain did a thing.
So with that I present to you:
Knights of the round table (+ Merlin) reincarnated as the Hargreeves siblings
So yeah. He’s Luther. Makes no sense character wise, but how could you not. Also Luther loves deeply and I guess so does Percival. Also both are loyal. So there you go.
Klaus. Need I say more? Same character, different font.
Merlin is Vanya. Strongest of them all and overlooked. Cares about everyone a lot and is queer. Also repressing emotions. Yeah.
Now I originally thought of Allison for him. But then it hit me. Lancelot is Ben. Quiet and innocent looking, but could easily kill everyone around him. Fiercely loyal, caring and protective. A romantic. Generally a joy to be around. Self-sacrificing bastard. Also dead.
Now I could argue for any of the remaining siblings for Arthur. But Leon and Elyan don’t really have Five energy hence Arthur is Five. Will burn the world to protect his loved ones. Also Arthur would definitely is the type to screw things up for himself because he overestimated his abilities. Especially without Merlin there to protect him from himself. (Note how Vanya aka Merlin tried to stop Five from doing stupid shit) He also has good relationship with Vanya aka Merlin. Also both don’t really show their emotions or express their feelings in any way. And Five definitely tries to tell everyone what to do.
(Side note: Five would work great for Merlin. Will burn the world around him for people he cares about? That’s Merlin. But Vanya doesn’t really work for anyone else. So there’s that.)
He’s Diego. Elyan has strong vigilante vibes. But he’s also very loyal and fiercely protective of people he cares about, just like Diego. Both would a 100% help you hide a body.
That’s leaves us with Leon as Allison. Which yeah, makes sense. Leon is loyal first and foremost. Very protective of those close to him. Tries to always do the right thing. So does Allison.
(Side note #2: notice how Merlin and Leon wore dresses and now they’re girls. I did not do that on purpose, but I noticed it once I finished. And idk it makes me feel some kind of way)
Morgana is Hazel.
Hazel’s arc is really her arc reversed. So that means she gets a redemption. Which I like.
Also that makes Gwen Agnes and it more then perfect.
Cha-cha is Morgouse.
Uther being Reginald is a given.
Gaius is Pogo I guess.
So yeah. That’s a thing my brain did instead of doing uni work.
If you have another take on this please, please, please tell me. Because I’ve been thinking a lot about this.
