What is her connection to Joel?
Abby is actually the daughter of a doctor who was a member of the Fireflies. He was a surgeon and was going to perform an operation on Ellie to create a cure for the disease that has destroyed the world. Just before the operation begins, Joel discovers that Ellie will not survive the procedure, so he does what Joel is prone to doing and kills the doctors, including Abby’s father.
