~ Abel threatening AJ.

Abel is an original character and an antagonist who first appears in Telltale Games' The Walking Dead: The Final Season. He serves as the secondary antagonist of Season 4.

He is voiced by Alex Fernandez, who also voiced Carlito Keyes.



At one point after the outbreak, he joins a group of raiders led by Lilly, and becomes her right-hand man. At some point, Marlon gave both of Tennessee's sisters, Minerva and Sophie, to him and his group of raiders so they would leave the boarding school alone. The twins were taken to be trained as soldiers in Delta's army, in their war against another community.

Nonetheless, later on, Abel would trigger and loot the boarding school's traps, leaving some of his hand rolled cigarettes behind on the scene. It is later revealed that if brought up by Clementine, he will confirm that it was him who set off the traps.

Encounter with Clementine and AJ

As AJ and Clementine are taking food from the train station, he appears before them and holds them at gunpoint. He tells them that he just wants food and picks up one of their duffel bags. Clementine can choose to either tell AJ to shoot him, attack him herself, or tell AJ to put the gun down.

If Clementine tells AJ to shoot him, Abel will retaliate and shoot both AJ and Clementine in the head, killing them, which results in a game over.

If Clementine attacks Abel herself, she pushes him towards an open window in which two zombies grab at him and pull him out. Two gunshots are heard, presumably meaning that he may have survived.

If Clementine tells AJ to put the gun down, AJ will put the gun down and Abel will steal the food and take off after Violet enters.

Second Encounter

Shortly after Clementine and AJ were kicked out of the boarding school, they come across Abel in the woods along with Lilly.

If Clementine attacked Abel in the previous episode, it is shown that his arm has been amputated because he was bitten.
