History

An inhabitant of The Dreaming, Abel is the original murder victim from the Bible. Though the story that has survived tells of him being slain in jealousy over God preferring Abel's sacrifice of a lamb over Cain's offering of plants, the truth is more sinister. Cain killed Abel in a rage after they argued over a woman. Morpheus, also known as Sandman or Dream, took pity on the brothers and brought them into Dreaming to act as storytellers. No one knows when the brothers returned to Earth or why but since the late 1960s (at least), they have been living in the hills of Kentucky. Located on opposite hills, with a rundown cemetary between them, Abel and his brother are custodians of The House of Secrets and The House of Mystery. Anyone brave, or foolish, enough to visit either house will find the brothers wonderful hosts who will stay up all night sharing wonderful stories of death, betrayal, and horror. Visitors should show caution when visiting the House of Secrets as Cain's hobby of devising new and inventive ways of murdering his brother has been known to catch innocent bystanders as well. This may very well be the source of the graveyard between the two houses though this has never been confirmed by either brother. For those of a squeamish stomach or an unhealthy case of morals this habit may seem shocking, but Abel never fails to resurrect in short order.

During the upheaval caused by Daniel Hall becoming the new Sandman, the Furies of Greek legend killed Abel. When he failed to come back to life his brother petitioned the new Lord of the Dreaming to restore him. Cain said that they had been promised by Morpheus that they would always be a "double act" and that Daniel needed to remain true to the contract. Surprisingly, it worked. Though quiet in recent years, the brothers are still active, spinning horror stories and endlessly reenacting their own.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Immortality: Abel ceased to physically age after a certain point in his life.
  • Dimensional Travel: Abel also possesses the ability to enter and exit the realm of the Dreaming through sheer act of will.

    Abilities

  • Storytelling: Abel is a master storyteller, preferring tales of the horrific or the macabre. Ironically, Abel is so talented at his craft that he often frightens himself with his own stories.

    Strength level

Abel possesses the strength level of a man his age, size and weight who abstains from most forms of physical exertion. A coward by nature, Abel is more likely to flee in terror than to resort to direct physical violence.

Weaknesses

  • Cowardice: Abel lives in perpetual fear of his brother Cain. Abel's fear is understandable, as Cain loves nothing more than to torment his brother, often killing him through various cruel and violent ways. Though Abel always resurrects himself, the practice has affected his behavior and he often cowers in terror of his brother's next malicious act.

Notes

  • The comic version of Abel is based upon the Biblical Abel as presented in Genesis, the first book of the Torah.
  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985-86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.

Final Fantasy

From Final Fantasy Wiki

Abel (also translated as Eber) is Denzel's father in On the Way to a Smile. Abel worked in Shinra's Third Business Department and lived above the Sector 7 plate.

Having been born in a poor village, Abel was proud to have come so far and, believing it was important to maintain a goal in life, hoped to one day move his family into Sector 3. As Denzel's flashback begins in the novella, Abel is promoted to the head of the department and makes plans to move to Sector 5. Abel told Denzel that the people in the slums below the plate ate rats and that he was lucky to be born above the plate.

On the day that Shinra destroyed Sector 7, Abel searches for his wife Chloe, but cannot find her. In desperation, he takes Denzel to Mr. Arkham and has him take Denzel to their Sector 5 home. Abel remains behind to find Chloe, and they are both killed when the plate falls.

"Abel. Get to the roof and play 'dropship'. We'll distract him"
―Thug boss

Abel was a criminal on the planet Dantooine. He was the muscle in a group of thugs that roamed a major city on the planet. When Leia Organa and Luke Skywalker arrived on the world to buy supplies from an Ortolan Merchant, Abel and the rest of the gang encountered the young Jedi. The leader of the gang ordered Abel to take Skywalker to the roof, apparently to mug him. However, when Abel and the rest of the group arrived, Luke used his quick reflexes and his lightsaber to turn on his would-be captors. The fast spin with his weapon caught Abel off-guard, and he was killed.
