Abe is a Mudokon. He and his people are slaves working at Rupture Farms, the biggest meat processing plant on Oddworld. As a child, Abe had his lips sewn shut to stop him crying. His stitches have loosened over the years, allowing him to speak again. Abe is a hard worker, more or less satisfied with the way things are. He is the chosen one of his species, despite his skepticism.
Abe attempts to somehow escape from Rupture Farms, hoping to try and save fellow Mudokon slaves along the way. During his escape, Abe discovers his inherent ability to chant and possess other beings and take full control over their bodies.
