Abe is a character in The Wind Waker.[3]

Biography

Abe lives on Outset Island,[4] on which he was born.[1] He is married to Rose and together, they had two sons: Joel and Zill.[2] He is interested in Wild Pigs, and in the beginning of the game he can be seen trying to catch a black pig by awaiting it from behind a palm tree. He gives Link some hints on how to catch pigs. When Link returns later in his adventure, Abe will be just outside of his house next to the fairly grown pig. Abe will also ask the young hero later on in the game to take the pig (who has the same name as Link) out for a walk.[5]

Abe
Birthplace: Outset Island
Greatest Treasure: His family

Abe is a family man who takes good care of his wife and two kids. In his younger days, his dashing good looks and baritone voice made him quite the ladies’ man.

Then one day, he was instantly smitten by a woman named Rose. Even though he was consistently rebuffed, he persisted and finally convinced Rose to marry him.

Nomenclature

Abe's name could be derived from Abraham Lincoln, with whom he shares similar facial expressions and facial hair. This is reinforced by the fact that his Spanish and German name are "Abraham".
