Abe grew up in Salem with brothers, Theo and Jonah. His passion for justice started young, but amplified after Theo was killed by a crooked police officer. Abe joined the Salem Police Department determined to rid the city of, filth including international crime lord, Stefano DiMera.
Abe was the police officer who investigated Anna Brady's claim that she was sold into white slavery. She had reported the existence of her secret Swiss bank account to her husband, Roman Brady.
He had a relationship with a woman named Nikki Wade, but this was cut short after he stood her up at a debutante ball in favor of heading up a drug bust. Before Abe's promotion to police chief, he met and married Alexandra (Lexi) Brooks. Just after their marriage, Lexi went searching through Aremid's files for her adoption records. She found out that her mother (Frankie Brooks- AKA Celeste Perrault), whom she'd always thought was her aunt, was actually her mother. She also learned that Stefano DiMera was in actuality her birth father. Conflict has risen many times in Abe and Lexi's marriage due to the presence of Stefano.
His next major storyline involved the Aremid wedding of Peter Blake and Jennifer Deveraux. Abe was caught up in the investigation of Tony DiMera's murder. Abe and Lexi went to Paris to find Marlena when Stefano kidnapped her. They ended up finding and saving Marlena and catching Stefano but were unable to prosecute him, because only Stefano had a drug that would save Roman's life. Abe, Lexi, and John helped break Stefano out of jail and later he was pardoned for his crimes after returning to Salem with the drug Roman needed.
Later, Abe and Lexi adopted baby Isaac, thinking he was the child of Stefano's alcoholic niece, Marlo. Isaac was actually Bo & Hope's son who Stefano had switched at birth. Abe was later appalled to learn that Lexi knew of the switch, but hid the truth from him. Abe filed for divorce and after Lexi helped Hope Brady and her son Zack, Lexi and Abe reconciled.
Shortly after, Brandon Walker came to Salem with a deep hatred of Abe. Lexi slept with Brandon during a weak moment and became pregnant, not knowing who the child's (Theo) father was, but this was soon resolved. The baby was Abe's and they reconciled for good. Brandon's presence caused issues for Abe until it was revealed that he was Abe's son, by Faye Walker. After some time, Abe and Brandon embraced each other as family, and have since had a good relationship.
Abe was shot dead on the day of Theo's christening. He was the first victim of the 2003 Salem serial killer. (Marlena)
Months later he turned up on a remote tropical island, (melaswen/newsalem) which was a complete replica of Salem. His "ghost" started appearing to Celeste and Lexi, (this was not explained). He worked together with Roman and the others and got off the island. Abe was reunited with Lexi and Theo but went blind and learned he was impotent. His anger shone through and he became paranoid that Lexi was cheating with Tek. She wasn't at the time but did so soon after, and stopped her affair when Abe found out from the 'gloved one' (EJ Wells - Stefano and Susan's son) and their marriage was in turmoil for a while until he used Lexi in the EJ Wells investigation, then fell back in love with her. They stayed together.
Recently, Lexi disappeared and now Abe is bringing up Theo with Celeste. His eyesight has started to deteriorate and he recently underwent a second retina transplant. Lexi has been found (in the tunnels under Doug's Place and the DiMera mansion, where Tony has kept her all these months against her will) and is now awaiting word on whether this transplant has worked.
Abe's second retina transplant was a success!
Lexi and Abe were reunited and after going through some tough times with their working schedules, their son, Theo, was diagnosed with Autism. This caused strife between the two but they saw a therapist and worked on their relationship and family issues. They continue to work together to cope with Theo's Autism.
Abe quit his job as Police Commissioner and worked freelance for awhile before he ran for Mayor of Salem and won. He then appointed Bo Brady as police commissioner as his first act of duty. He and Bo vow to work together to make Salem a better, less corrupt city.
Recently, he was struck by the Salem mugger and is now working with Hope Brady and SPD in order to find out who this mugger is. It was found that Hope was the mugger while under the influence of a sleeping aid and Abe is relegated to the background, though he and Lexi recently discussed having another child.
Abe and Lexi met Chad Peterson-Woods, who is Stefano's son with now deceased Judge Madeline Peterson-Woods. Abe warned Chad to stay away from Stefano.
Abe decided to run for mayor once again and went up against EJ DiMera. EJ played a few rotten tricks on Abe, who has allowed Jennifer to retaliate and do what they can to ensure EJ stays out of office.

Abe arrives at the Kiriakis mansion. He says due to lack of evidence, the DA has elected not to press charges. Victor's thrilled. Abe tells Brady to wake up before he goes and Victor says, "That man loves nothing more than to sermonize." Brady says Abe was right and John's coma is still his fault. Daniel arrives and says there's still hope for John. He tells them he's going to a conference in St. Louis.
Daniel goes to Brady at John's hospital bedside. Brady doesn't understand how he turned into someone who could do this to their own father. By the hub, a pale Theresa flashes to hitting John. Abe and Hope approach hoping she'll repeat her story. She yells that it's not a story. Abe says they lifted two sets of prints. Brady's and a partial of Victor's. Theresa snaps that it makes sense. Vic does live there. Abe says somebody wiped the poker clean. Theresa panics and babbles that the mansion has maids. They ask why she moved Brady and John. They must have been moved quite a distance for Brady to have hit John as hard as he was hit. Aiden arrives. Theresa hired him to protect her husband since Justin is in Dubai. Hope's taken aback. Brady walks up and says he doesn't need a lawyer. "I'm guilty." Theresa walks Aiden to the elevator and Brady asks her to leave him be for now. He tells the cops his memory's a blank. He doesn't see how it could be self-defense. They notice he's not wearing his wedding ring yet he married Theresa last night. Could she have been the reason for the argument? He just doesn't know. Daniel arrives and says John is in stable condition but has slipped deeper into a coma. They don't know if he'll ever wake up. His brain 'went into safe mode' to give it time to heal. Eve finds Theresa a mess in the community room. Theresa spills coffee. Eve says, "Don't get any coffee on your tacky dress." She asks what her sister has done now and spots the ring. Theresa asks her to keep the marriage quiet for now and throws Eve out of the room. Back by the hub, Brady goes to see John and Daniel's handing John's case to the staff for long-term care. He's swinging by the pub to eat. Eve eavesdrops and Maxine hopes Daniel goes home to sleep. He goes and Eve follows.
Aiden returns to the hospital and advances toward Hope. She flashes to their intimate dance. He's there to see more clients and they discuss how well the gala went. Theresa yells at Abe nearby and then takes Aiden aside. She says the cops are trying to put words into her mouth. She goes to John's room and flashes again to beating on him. Brady asks if she's lying about what happened. She denies it and hugs him. Brady says he needs an AA meeting. Things need to change. Outside, Hope and Abe comment on how jumpy Theresa is. Either she's telling the truth, lying, or she did it herself. They have to wait for Brady or John to fill in the blanks. Later, Hope and Aiden share an awkward moment, deciding not to meet alone anymore. Aiden goes and Hope flashes to almost kissing him. She gulps. At the hub, Maxine tells Jenn where Daniel is, in the hopes she'll follow.
