A Salem native, Abe grew up with his two brothers, Theo and Jonah. His passion for justice started young, but increased after Theo was killed by a corrupt police officer. Abe joined the Salem Police Department determined to rid the city of -- among other things -- international crime boss Stefano DiMera. Wouldn't it figure he later married his daughter, Lexie? "Honest Abe" would be a perfect name for Officer Carver given his penchant for upstanding behavior.
