Abigail originally appeared in ''Final Fight'' as a hulking member of the Mad Gear gang, and was initially stated to be from the [[wikipedia:Netherlands|Netherlands]]. However, for his appearance in ''Street Fighter V'', his birthplace was changed to Canada. This is referenced in his profile on the Shadaloo C.R.I. profile, which states that he claims to be from Holland, but his passport states he was born in Canada.

During the development of his playable appearance in ''Street Fighter V'', Abigail's designs included one close to his original ''Final Fight'' appearance, a face-paint version, a version where he wears death masks of Mad Gear members on his shoulders and knees, and two kinds of version where he has make-up and wears fur.<ref name="EarlyAbigail">[http://game.capcom.com/cfn/sfv/column/132058 Street Fighter V Early Development Ideas: Abigail]</ref>

Much like how Hugo is based off of Andre the Giant, Abigail is seemingly based off of Canadian born [[wikipedia:Édouard Beaupré|Édouard Beaupré]], who is one of the biggest wrestlers in history at 251.4 cm (8 ft 3 in). His overall name and use of eye makeup refers to heavy metal singer and lead vocalist [[wikipedia:King_Diamond|King Diamond]] and the eponymous album ''[[wikipedia:Abigail_(album)|Abigail]]''. Similar makeup was seen on WWF wrestlers [[wikipedia:The_Ultimate_Warrior|The Ultimate Warrior]] and the [[wikipedia:Road_Warrior_Animal|Road Warrior Animal]] of the tag team [[wikipedia:The_Road_Warriors|The Road Warriors]].

**Albeit being 8 feet tall and nearly 600 pounds, every other character in ''Street Fighter V'' can somehow still throw him just as easily as they could with someone of normal height and weight, but this is obviously just for gameplay reasons.

**The most noticeable example is [[Necalli]], who lifts the near 600 pound Abigail as easily as the 101 pound Ibuki.
   
*In ''Street Fighter V'', Abigail is the only character that can't be knocked into any of the stage [[knockout zones]], likely because he is too large, which would make several of the knockout animations look strange or even cause them to clip, thus possibly glitching the game.

*His ''Street Fighter'' route arcade ending in ''[[Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition]]'' is based on his encounter with Cody in ''Final Fight''. After Abigail told Cody about Jessica "having a good time" with Belger, Cody beats up the smaller gang members but Abigail managed to surprise him at some point and beating him, as well as taking him prisoner and locking him in a room with a lit pack of dynamite (which references ''Final Fight''<nowiki>'</nowiki>s continue screen).<ref>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6_-ScGS6Nw</ref>
