To the world at large, Abe Sapien, the "fish man," is a myth that does not truly exist, the stuff of tabloid covers or children's campfire horror stories. To those in the know, Abe is an agent of B.P.R.D., an investigator of strange and occult situations outside the area of expertise of most law enforcement agencies.

Amphibious=Abe is capable of breathing indefinitely underwater as well as, for extended but not indefinite periods, out of it. His sensory organs provide him with the ability to navigate in unlit or cloudy areas, and his body is capable of withstanding greater pressures than humans can. However, Abe is not entirely immune to significant changes in pressure, and he would experience discomfort, pain, and disorientation if forced to traverse depths below roughly a thousand feet.

Psychic Sensitivity

Abe possesses some minor psychic sensitivity, making him capable of experiencing sensations of strange phenomena. These might be odors, emotional resonances, or even observations of spectral activity. Sometimes, the phenomena are understandable or recognizable; at other times, they may confuse far more than they illuminate. A related consequence of this sensitivity is that Abe can, potentially, become overwhelmed by the sensations he experiences--whether drawn in by them (as part of an instinctive effort to understand them more clearly and fully) or unable to navigate and discern them from the sensations of reality.

Abe is an expert investigator, having excelled at applying his long-time love of learning and exploration to his work. Thanks to his psychic sensitivity and his difference in physiology from most, Abe is well-attuned to anomalies in the environment and details that might otherwise be overlooked. The nature of his work also allows him to draw connections and develop theories that might seem absurd in a more conventional setting--and, because of his training, Abe is frequently correct in his hypotheses.


Abe is a skilled marksman, having received extensive training and practice with all NATO firearms as part of his work with BPRD. He tends most frequently to use pistols, but he is comfortable using any firearm that a situation may call for.

Occult Knowledge

Since being recovered by BPRD, Abe has spent years educating himself--not only in regards to mundane subjects but also (and perhaps most especially) to occult and arcane lore. He is a well-read scholar on the strange and weird, with his education augmented further by his collaboration with Prof. Bruttenholm, Hellboy, and other top minds among the BPRD.

As a field agent for the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense, Abe has access to a range of military- and law enforcement-grade resources. This includes support personnel, travel, vehicles, firearms, and a range of specialized equipment; the specific resources he may be able to expect or otherwise rely on differ as appropriate for each particular mission. In addition, Abe lives on-site at BPRD headquarters; his unique appearance and physiology makes it difficult for him to live peacefully among humans, and so the BPRD provide room and board for him. Most importantly, though, are Abe's closest friends and allies--Hellboy, Liz Sherman, and the other most dedicated BPRD agents--who provide him with something that approaches a sense of family and belonging. Just as Abe feels like he can rely confidently on these individuals, so to does he know he must be there for them.

While any number of apocalyptic, eldritch, or otherwise "weird" cults are currently operating, there are several of which that are either actively pursuing Abe or see him as a key to their end goal (from bringing forth ancient sea gods to heralding new ages of mankind). Whatever the specifics may be, Abe knows that he will never be just another person, or just another agent; he is enmeshed in the often-depraved activities that the BPRD investigates.


While Abe can survive for days without needing to submerge himself in water, he cannot live indefinitely on land. Accordingly, he tends to seek out missions that involve nearby bodies of water--not only in case he needs to investigate them, but also so that he can rely on access to them for survival if need be.
