Abbot was a scientist presumably involved in the SETI program, as throught out the movie he drops several hints,:
- He mentions Sara that some of his collegues tried to study her species.
- He posseses Fitch's data of Sil.
- He is also knows the parentage of the halfbreed: "an astronaut infected by the alien strain".
Species III Edit
Abbot is the driver of the medical ban that carries Eve's body and a surviving son of Patrck Ross. He takes the van out of the road, and eventually stops and holds the co-driver at gunpoint. The latter is suddenly killed by the cargo. Abbot goes to the back of the van to investigate and discovers a revived Eve who goes into labour. She gives birth to a girl but is attacked by Portus so Abbot runs away with the newborn and takes it back to his home.
Later Abbot is seen working at an university as a biology teacher while he keeps Sara locked in his basement. He returns home discovers that Sara managed to come out of the lab and that she has grown into a little girl. He offers her permission to go up to the house as long as she doesn't leave the house.
The following night while Abbot he trying to avoid Dr Turner he is visited by a decaying halfbreed who demands to see Eve's offspring. Abbot tries to help him and Portus before dying reveals that there are other halfbreeds in the same conditions. Unsure of what to do, Abbot contacts Dean for help and the two take the corpse to his house. After arriving he discovers that Sara has pupated and has killed Turner as well. Dean tries to call the police but Abbot convinces him no one would believe him and that he would be seen as the murderer. Dean finally agrees to work with the professor only if he recives an appropiate credit for his contribution. The two then dipose of Turner's body.
As they work on the remains of the halfbreed, Abbot uses Xavier Fitch documents to explain his student that Sara is the third alien generation born on Earth and that the balance between human and alien DNA that she has make her the purest strain of the species up to now. He discovers that Portus on the other hand as a halfbreed had a weak immune system and was vulnerable to diseases. Dean asks him whether they should tell Sara about this, but Abbot tells him that they better not. Also he suggests Dean not to get romantically involved with her because she had already rejected the human males as a potencial mate. At some unknown point he sedated Sara while she was asleep and harvested her eggs.
When another halfbreed breaks in and attemps to impregnate Sara, Abbot takes Dean out of the lab and releases a hydrochloric gas that affects both aliens. However, Dean returns for Sara and Abbot attacks Yosef so that both can escape. He dies after being mortally wounded and Dean burns his body in a near by lake.
- "Friday April 13th...my last day alive, maybe. What's the matter if so many have died before me? They said she was beatiful, I suppose she was. The part that was human, anyway. And the part that wasn't? What about that? Did the men she killed understand in some final flash before dying what she really was? Cold. Indiferent. Inhuman. Insatiable. And terrifyingly wonderful. And what about the civilization that bin their DNA out to space? They knew we would use it. Knew we'd mix it with ourown genes. But, did they know the monsters they would result? Twice she was done, twice she brought destruction. And now is my turn to take Eve's body, take her dying DNA and somehow create something better. More purer. Only then we will understand why she was sent. Only then"
