- "When Michael arrived at the Refuge, he had nothing but the clothes on his back. There's a reason it's called the Refuge, and a reason that it exists in a secret location in history. The Time Masters will never think to look for you here."
- —Mary Xavier on the Refuge
The Refuge is an orphanage used for containing future Time Masters including Rip Hunter. It was briefly used as a refuge for younger selves of Rip Hunter's team and their families. Mary Xavier, Rip Hunter's adoptive mother, runs the orphanage.
