Present Day abby2_icon.gif
There are times that walk from you
Like some passing afternoon
Summer warmed the open window of her honeymoon
And she chose a yard to burn
But the ground remembers her
Wooden spoons, her children stir her Bougainvillea blooms

There are things that drift away
Like our endless numbered days
Autumn blew the quilt right off the perfect bed she made
And she's chosen to believe
In the hymns her mother sings
Sunday pulls its children from their piles of fallen leaves

There are sailing ships that pass
All our bodies in the grass
Springtime calls her children until she lets them go at last
And she's chosen where to be
Though she's lost her wedding ring
Somewhere near her misplaced jar of Bougainvillea seeds

There are things we can't recall
Blind as night that finds us all
Winter tucks her children in, her fragile china dolls
But my hands remember hers
Rolling around the shaded ferns
Naked arms, her secrets still like songs I'd never learned

There are names across the sea
Only now I do believe
Sometimes, with the window closed, she'll sit and think of me
But she'll mend his tattered clothes
And they'll kiss as if they know
A baby sleeps in all our bones, so scared to be alone

Passing Afternoon
Iron & Wine

Character History:

The bright future. Others have vaulted to fame and glory, money, and a whole host of everything. Abigail has preferred to remain in obscurity.

Abigail eventually made it to school, taking necessary courses to qualify and get her EMT 1 & 2, getting a job riding the 'buses'. Her ability known, she had her pick of jobs but opted to go with the one that didn't expect her to use her ability on every call. She kept in contact with those from Phoenix, as well as those who were not in Phoenix, popping up and using her touch when it was needed.

The medals of freedom doled out and recognition of those who gave their lives or risked them to save the world, Abigail was a noticeable absence at the ceremony despite it being her touch that banished Kazimir Volken. The official story was that she didn't want the publicity that came with it, wanting to just keep on as she was. Inwardly it because she didn't believe that she deserved the medal for taking a life. It stays, much like a certain engagement ring, in a lock box in her closet. You just don't turn those things down. It was with devastation later that year that the Columbia 14 Incident occurred. Though she was near, Abigail was unable to save those she knew who perished. She turned her attention to those who lived.

It was during her time as a paramedic that she met her husband, Johan Baker who attended the same church that she did. Though they didn't work the same rig a lot, a friendship developed and then something more. The unity act was established, born from the Linderman act. Suddenly, she was inundated with offers to move from New York, even an official offer from St. Lukes to come work for the hospital in a fashion more official than "occasional healer". She was one of the one offered a 7 figure salary due to the nature of her ability. Johan supported her in her decision to turn the offers down, and even in her choice to un-register her ability, a choice she didn't really have in the past and got down on knee one day to present her with a modest diamond and a request to make her his wife.

In 2014, Johan and Abigail married in a supposedly to be conservatively numbered event. A gift from his parents, and from hers, the turnout was nearly three times what they expected. Co-workers, those who she'd known in the past, those close, and even people who she had saved through her ability that had kept track of where their 'angel' had gone and showed up to watch Abigail Beauchamp become Mrs. Abigail Baker. Within the year after, Abigail and Johan had a son, Joseph. After her time off taking care of him while Johan worked, Abigail went to nursing school, moving out of the rigs and into the hospital. St. Lukes pediatric ward. The hospital was only far too happy to have her and without having to pay the outrageous sums that were offered. Though she didn't run around healing people perpetually. She was just that, a nurse who worked alongside Eileen, and refined her gift with Gabriel's help. Becoming a better healer.

Not everything can be happy and shiny. On a call gone terribly wrong in 2016, Johan and his partner's rig was caught in a massive pileup and was announced dead on the scene as they were transporting a cardiac patient. Abigail was 7 months pregnant with their second child. She bore through it with the help of her friends, Eileen who was present for the birth of her daughter Natalie. One person present though, through the years, was Flint Deckard. Old enough to have been her father, through trial and tribulation, hers and his, the two were there in the background of each others lives.

So it came likely, as no surprise and with much prodding from Teo, that eventually, Deckard and others pulled Abby out of the mourning she had for her husband, and live for herself as well as, and not just, for her children. The last two years have been one of returning to living. She has a relationship with Flint Deckard that might as well be marriage, for all that he spends at her place and she at his though both have not put it on the table. Her more to do with the fact that she still loves Johan and isn't over her husband yet, Deckard for other reasons.

She lives out of the limelight, called on still to come heal, patches Deckard up on his excursions when life becomes too complacent. She drags Gabriel out to help her heal the homeless, payment and expectation for him having been given her gift or to help out Sonny Bianco and his evolved healing charity. God is still present in her life, but while it's not on the back burner, children, job, and relationships now vie for time. Her dinner table always has a place set for guests every night, she makes time for her children, time for her friends and work. The little gold cross however, has never left her neck for longer than a day or two. The southern accent still remains strong as it ever was on the happy blonde who doesn't look a day over her mid 20's.

A call from Elisabeth changed things once again. An early morning arrival of people who were supposed to be dead but turned out to be time travelers. While initially more than happy to help them, heal them and even put up the non phoenix individuals in her home, it became clear over the next month that all was not right. With the presence of a company agent in her home, she sent her children to her fathers in Brooklyn and took vacation so that she could watch over them and be available. Deckard seemed to be a little more off as time went by and she tried to be supportive. One night, out of the blue, he proposed that they go to Vegas. One red eye'd flight later, and a journey via teleporter at the last moment by Teo, the pair were married. All seemed well in the household of Beauchamp, despite the psychopaths.

Seemed well until an aborted dinner party at the Grey household ended up with black paint over everyone, Deckard trying to hide paintings, Gabriel in a pre-cog fit and the depiction of a black future. From there things just seemed to fall apart. The world, as they knew it would end. Incoming apocalypse. No way to save it. All signs pointed that it was because of the time travelers or what they were going to do. Old Abby would have moved heaven and earth to help them, But this Abby. She had children and now another husband. So she made a deal with Deckard. She wouldn't help them, not lift a finger. Push came to shove and Gillian Petrelli lay dying. She almost let the woman expire there if it hadn't been for Teo's pleading. She's never been one to turn away Teo.

But the damage was done, and in the end, there was rift between her and Teo and she had the travelers leave her home.

With the return of the time travelers presumably to their right time, what has happened to her and her family is unknown.


Evolved Human Ability:

Abigails evolved ability is heal through express intent/concentration through physical contact with another person or animal. Be it a congenital defect that a person is born with, wounds received from an accident or even disease that come along at some point during a persons life, even the common cold, Abby's innate gift allows her to cure all that over a short, medium, or long period of time depending upon how much effort she puts into it or the severity if the wound in question. Blood borne diseases, injuries, calamities are ineffective to her gift. To this degree she can also regenerate lost limbs and other extremities, though it takes a great deal more time than just sealing up a gash. She generally uses her hands, but on occasion will use other places on her body when warranted, or unable to use her hands.

This comes at great personal cost as her own energy is consumed in the process and can leave her drained, unconscious or merely exhausted. While the healing starts out at set rate, through concentration she can increase the flow and thereby, increase the speed. The harder she pushes though, the quicker she'll feel the consumption of energy. This is offset to a degree by replacing energy lost with adequate substitutes but at some point, even those can't replace what's needed. In the bright future, years of practice and learning with Gabriel Gray who emphatically adopted her ability and with Deckard who eased her past her mental block, can and does heal without needing to pray. It's also refined to the point that she, with a touch, can tell where the injury is and pin point healing instead of broad based. It makes for better conservation of her personal energy and leaves her able to help more people.

Severing contact with the individual ceases the healing flow or interruption of concentration has the same effect.

Memorable Quotes:

  • "I waited so long to see him put in jail for what he did for me, what he put me through. I see him now and… even though he'll only know a fraction of what hell he put me through, he won't be doing it to anyone else. I have no pity for him. Just the knowledge that finally, something in this world is right and by God I'll fight to keep him there." - When asked about John Logan being found guilty and sentenced to jail.
  • "Johan Patrick Baker! I'll have whoever I want, over for dinner in this house. Or have you forgotten who it is that married you and bore you a son. So i'll hear none of that lip from you and you can either go sleep on the couch with him tonight, or you can hush your mouth and by God, go sit beside Flint Deckard and share a meal and come to bed with me tonight. He helped save the world too!" - After one boozy turn up of Deckard at the Baker Household.
  • "Eileen… Eileen, I don't want anymore babies, I lied, oh God I lied, I'm sorry, no more. Just please, please Eileen GET HER OUT ALREADY for christs sake" - After 18 hours of labor with her daughter Natalie.


This is Family. Maybe not legally, but they're family none the less.

  • Deckard - He's twice her age but Deckard is Abby's significant other. Seeing each other the past year, they've seen each other through thick and thin, whether publicly or from afar. By all accounts, they should be married, but have never even taken the steps toward the question. He sometimes lives with her, depending upon what he's been doing.
  • Johan - Deceased. Her former husband, a fellow paramedic and the love of her life. A man that Abigail is still very much in love with and to this day has problems coming to terms with his sudden death. The father of her children and someone who seemed very much her soul mate.
  • Joseph - 4 years old, he favors his father - Johan - with his dark hair and eyes. Not much of one to instigate, but tends to follow the lead of those around him. Best friend is Walter, and inspiration is Cameron. Loves to irritate his sister and was named after Pastor Joseph Sumter.
  • Natalie - Her youngest child, 2 years old, is the spitting image of her mother and homebody. Always wanting to be near other people and in laps so she can cling and watch whats going on around her.
  • Baxter - Deckard's son, and someone Abby's healed more than once. He's over for dinner often enough that Joseph call him by his first name even when Abby tells him not to, and causes Abby to blush no small amount with the knowledge that should she and Deckard ever be more than what they are, she'll have a stepson who's older than her.
