Abigail Williams is a character in the Fables comics.

History

Background

During the Salem witch trials in 1692, Abigail Williams accuses several women of being witches in order to cover up her own involvement in witchcraft. When Ichabod Crane confronts her about it, Abigail leaves Salem and moves to Boston. There, her life as a prostitute becomes so depressing that Abigail attempts suicide, but the Knave of Hearts intervenes. Eventually, Abigail and the Knave get married.

The Wolf Among Us

In the Silvering, Abigail reconstructs Bloody Mary's glass baby and attempts to activate its teleportation powers with the heart of Grendel's mother. However, the ritual fails, and they find themselves seeking out Aunty Greenleaf, who succeeds. Using the baby, Abigail - along with her husband and the Crooked Man's gang - are transported to the the Homelands. Upon entering the abandoned castle of Allerleirauh, Abigail is possessed by the ghost of King Edward, who makes a deal with the Crooked Man, offering to give him the magic word to activate his donkey's gold excretion in exchange for Edward's daughter Faith.
