Abe Carver was a police officer with the Salem PD. In 1982 when Roman's wife Anna returned claiming she'd been sold into white slavery Abe was suspicious and did some investigating. He found that Anna had a Swiss bank account in her name, and he told Roman.

Later Nikki Wade was hired as the Salem PD Secretary. On the outside Nikki seemed to be a plain, average woman, but in truth she came from a very wealthy and respected family. Both Danny Grant and Abe Carver began to date Nikki, but she eventually chose Abe. However, Nikki soon became unhappy with Abe, especially when he left her at a debutante ball to head off to a drug bust. Unfortunately the dealer was Roman undercover, and the two friends argued because neither new what the other one was planning.

In 1992 Abe was promoted to Police Commander after Roman used illegal methods to catch Raffi Torres.

Abe and Lexie came to Aremid for Peter Blake and Jennifer Devereaux's wedding. Lexie began to search for her parents and Abe was caught up in Tony's murder. Lexie found her adoption file at the orphanage, but she was shocked when she saw that her birth parents died over 100 year ago, according to their tombstones. Lexie continued to search for the truth and she found help from a local crazy man named Logan, AKA The Parrot Man.

Lexie talked with the Parrot Man about her past because Celeste refused to help her. Lexie learns that she was born in Aremid and was later put up for adoption. The parrot man showed Lexie her supposed birth parents grave and she is stunned to learn that they died over 100 years ago However, Lexie was unable to find her birth records among the records at the Aremid orphanage. Lexie does recall being rocked as a small girl by her natural mother. Later, the parrot man gave Lexie her file and she learned that Celeste is her mother, but her father's name was not listed. Eventually, the Parrot Man told Lexie that Stefano was her father.

Stefano escaped with Marlena into some underground tunnels below Aremid. Lexie tried to reason with her father, but he and Marlena are lost in a cave in. Stefano managed to escape to the ocean, but John rescued Marlena. Stefano escapes via helicopter and vowed to return for Marlena.

After returning to Salem, Stefano had Jonah Carver reinstated into Medical School to please his daughter Lexie. Celeste warned Lexie that Stefano was attempting to buy her love.

In June of 96, Abe and Lexie went to Paris with John in an attempt to find Stefano and Marlena. John realized that Stefano is holding Marlena prisoner in the Paris underground. To lure him out, John set up a huge ball, where Marie Antoinette's crown would be displayed. John knew that Stefano would try to steal it for his "Queen" Marlena. John also knew that if Stefano follows the game, Marlena would show up wearing a gold gown. Unfortunately, Stefano anticipated this. Stefano took Marlena to the ball, but he arranged for many many women to be dressed exactly like Marlena. John, Kristen, Abe, Lexie, and John's french cop friend Renee combed the ball looking for Marlena and each had a mini TV set that was hooked up to many cameras at the ball. Marlena and Kristen came face to face and they argued. Marlena ran off and eventually found John. Unfortunately, Stefano stabbed John with a needle and drug him off while Kristen watched. Stefano also managed to steal the crown by having someone impersonate Renee.

In the Paris Underground, Stefano put John on trial for his crimes against him. John was found guilty and was sentenced to be executed by beheading. Marlena attempted to stop the execution, but failed. Luckily, Vivian and Ivan were searching for Stefano and managed to free John from the guillotine he was in. John and Marlena ran for the tunnels and Stefano perused them. Kristen decided to find the Paris Underground to try and save John and her mother, Rachel, insisted on going. An explosion in the underground buried Kristen and Rachel, but Abe and Lexie managed to save them. They all searched for John and Lexie. When the found him, John had a gun and was holding it on Stefano. Marlena was hurt during the explosion and John gave his gun to Rachel to hold on Stefano so he could carry Marlena. Stefano managed to escape and Rachel followed him. Rachel and Stefano ended up near a gas tank. Rachel, knowing the consequences, shot at Stefano. The tank exploded and Stefano and Rachel were presumed dead.

In 1997, all of Abe's hatred for Stefano was released when Abe finally caught Stefano Dimera. However, Stefano allowed himself to be caughte and Abe knew that. Stefano was the only man who could save Abe's best friend, Roman, from a deadly disease that was killing him. Though it pained him to do so, Abe, with Lexie and John Black's help, broke Stefano out. When Stefano returned to Salem with the cure for Roman, he was given a pardon.
