Abel is a fictional, playable character in the third installment of the Battle Arena Toshinden video game series. He made his first and only appearance in Battle Arena Toshinden 3, as both an unlockable sub-boss and the main antagonist of the game. He is the only character in the series who does not wield a weapon and instead fights using his own bare fists.

Character HistoryEdit

Abel is the leader of the Soshiki: a rival organization of Master's Himitsu Kessha. Abel was an avid worshiper of Agon Teos, whom he believed to be the Toshin: the God of Fighting. Abel's plan was to revive Agon Teos using the blood of powerful warriors and give him a human body. He had sent out Vermilion to the second Toshindabukai to gather information about the Toshinden fighters and see if their blood could be used for the ritual. Although Vermilion was discovered and defeated by Sho Shinjo, he was successful nonetheless. With the information, Abel concluded that they were powerful enough. For the human body, Abel had chosen an English teenage boy named David, whose parents were killed by Abel and his forces. During his time at the orphanage, David was attacked by Abel and that the Soshiki had attempted to capture him from within their own time, but David was able to escape from them and sought refuge with a Japanese gambler named Shizuku Fuji. To complete the ritual of bringing back Agon Teos, Abel had decided to hold the third Toshindabukai and draw out the blood sacrifices into his own trap. However, the Toshinden fighters were more powerful than Abel had expected and that they easily killed most of his followers. Abel himself was eventually confronted by Eiji Shinjo who, after a long battle, managed to defeat and kill Abel. With Abel's death, the Soshiki had fallen and most of its warriors were slain, except Vermilion, who would later rise again to participate in the fourth Toshindabukai held by Eiji.

Move ListsEdit

Unlike the rest of the weapon-wielding Toshinden fighters, Abel utilizes both punches and kicks. He can tackle his opponent with a relative ease and summons several meteors or to shoot a multiple of fireballs to create a massive aura to obliterate his opponent. His fighting style is based from Street Fighter's Ryu, Ken and Akuma's fighting style known as Martial Arts rooted in Ansatsuken. His predecessor Veil also utilize this style but is slightly more damaging.
