Abel is a character from Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE.
Abel is a recurring character in the Fire Emblem series, specifically the games set on the continent of Archanea. A knight of Altea serving under Marth, he was also known as the "Panther" of Altea and fought alongside his partner Cain, the "Bull." The two fought for Prince Marth in his effort to reclaim Altea from the forces of the Shadow Dragon Medeus.
After the war, he marries the Pegasus Knight Est and retires in Altea. When the antagonistic Archanean Empire invades Altea, Abel is forced to fight for them after they take Est hostage. Though he rejoins Marth's forces when they return to Altea and Est is rescued, Est chooses to leave him after the war and disappears. Abel embarks on a search for her, but it is unknown if he ever found her.
Cain and Abel together established a long-standing character trope in the Fire Emblem series. Most entries in the franchise feature a pair of cavalier units with distinctive red armor (matching Cain) and green armor (matching Abel).
Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE Edit
He appears as an antagonistic Mirage. He’s Cain’s rival and close friend. Due to a curse of some kind, he holds fierce jealousy toward his partner Cain. Having become a dark knight, he stands before the party.
He appear in one of Touma's side quests where he kidnapped Rick Suzumoto and forcing draining his Performa as a vessel. After he is defeated, he is reverted back to his normal and he appears to stay at Riku's side.
- Despite the biblical references in their names, Abel is not Cain's brother. Also, unlike the biblical tale in which Cain murdered Abel, Abel is the betrayer in Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem when Est's kidnapping forces him to fight for the enemy.
