Biography[edit | edit source]

Pre-Series[edit | edit source]

Abby was born in New Orleans, Louisiana.

She was later given up for adoption by her birth parents and taken in by an unnamed family, raising her as their own along with their birth son Luca Sciuto.

Her foster parents were deaf with young Abby subsequently learning American Sign Language to communicate with them.

During her youth, Abby moved and got a chance to experience most of the southern United States. At the age of ten, she learnt how to drive a manual transmission.

Upon finishing high school, she went to college, graduating with full honors from Louisiana State University with a triple major in Sociology, Criminology, and psychology.

She had earned her Master's degree from Georgia State University in Criminology and Forensic Science.

A while after, Abby joined Naval Criminal Investigative Service.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Abby is a cheerful and kind person, in contrast to her gothic aesthetic and fashion (Pauley Perrette, the actor of Abby, confirming herself that she would not be confined into a stereotype of Goth, and that Abby is Abby.). She's shown to be a very stubborn person, repeatedly attempting to prove innocence of multiple characters that she is or has been close with in the span of the episode. In the beginning of the show, she, along with Ducky, was one of the only characters who wasn't intimidated by Gibbs, and has repeatedly doted on him.

Abby is a very hard worker, and is revealed to have no outside hobbies or interests aside from bowling with a group of nuns. She drinks a lot of Caf-POW!, a fictional caffeinated energy drink, to keep her awake and alert, although it is implied that she is the only member of the team to enjoy this drink. She can be shown in states of agitation and panic, hitting her computer and walking around quickly, if her work is shut down or hits a dead end.

Abby cares deeply for her fellow colleagues, and can become panicked or depressed if one of her friends or colleagues is hurt, she can be sent into a state of overworking, and can easily become distressed when she is unable to work, and beats herself up over it.

Physical Appearance[edit | edit source]

Abby is a woman in her late thirties with black hair and green eyes. She dresses in a rather gothic fashion, with skeletons and/or other phantasmagorical creatures adorning her clothes, and wearing chokers, anklets, and rings on her feet.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Relationships with NCIS Colleagues[edit | edit source]

Leroy Jethro Gibbs[edit | edit source]

Gibbs is shown to be very caring to her as opposed to the other team members, although often having to ask her to stop rambling and get back on track, bringing her Caf-POW! and often expressing physical or verbal affection towards her if she finds any breaks in the case. Gibbs is very protective of her, and will often go out of his way to ensure that she is safe or well, including dropping his coffee onto the ground to rescue her from a suffocating Humvee. Abby dotes on him often, describing him as her type and calling him a 'silver fox'. She has named a Navy dog in honor of him.

Anthony "Tony" DiNozzo[edit | edit source]

Abby and Tony tease each other often, although non-hostile, he would often drop by her lab to ramble or vent about girls or film-talk. Abby has worked herself over to a state of burnout to prove Tony's innocence after her temporary assistant framed him for murder, to which Abby tied her assistant up against a chair in response.

Vivian "Viv" Blackadder[edit | edit source]

Caitlin "Kate" Todd[edit | edit source]

Sisterly like relationship. They have traveled out together, and often hang out or go places. Abby was absolutely devastated at her death, and had been unable to go out with friends since then.

Ziva David[edit | edit source]

Abby was rather cold with her at the beginning, since she had came to replace Kate, but has learnt to accept her over the course of the show. She often hugs or expresses physical affection to Ziva, much to her embarrassment.

Eleanor "Ellie" Bishop[edit | edit source]

Abby didn't want to speak to her at all when Eleanor came in to help the team, as she knew that she was an analyst and thought she would build a profile on her. The two have a mutual relationship, exchanging gossip over Gibbs's unexpected 'sleepover' with his ex wife in Check (episode).

Timothy McGee[edit | edit source]

The two were shown to have an affair in the beginning seasons, and have often shown jealousy when one member shows a love interest. Abby was closest with McGee overall, as he would often come over to work in her lab and gain insight from her. They have a sibling-like relationship, and both would go into panic if the other is injured or mentally unwell.

Donald "Ducky" Mallard[edit | edit source]

Somewhat close with Ducky, despite her temporary fears of the autopsy room in Recovery (episode). Ducky treats her like a daughter, although he refers to her by her full name.
