Nothing is known about Patrick's past before enrolling at the Xavier Institute.

Xavier's Institute

Patrick was enrolled after the Xavier Institute went public.[1] When the training squad system began, Patrick was placed with Rogue's Advocates Squad and codenamed Umbra.[2][3]


Umbra was one of the many mutants to lose their powers on M-Day.[4] The depowered students of the Xavier Institute were asked to leave the school, but the bus carrying several depowered students was attacked by one of William Stryker's Purifiers.[5] It is unknown if Umbra was aboard the bus.


Currently none. Umbra was a mutant, but lost his mutant powers due to the effects of M-Day.

  • "Umbra" is a Latin word meaning "shadow". In Greek mythology, Umbra referred to the ghost or spirit, a "shade" of the deceased. In astronomy, Umbra refers to the shadow cast by a celestial body.
