Set 97 years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization, a spaceship housing humanity's lone survivors sends 100 juvenile delinquents back to Earth in hopes of possibly re-populating the planet.
Councilwoman Dr. Abigail "Abby" Griffin is the authoritative Chief Medical Officer of The Ark space station. She is the main one who is monitoring the progress and the habitable status of the Delinquents on Earth.
Jake Griffin is Abby's deceased husband, the Chief Engineer. He was executed when he was planning to reveal The Ark's flaw to everyone. She and Jake were close prior to his death, but Abby put her beliefs for The Ark before him. Clarke says that she was against her husband's idea, Earth Kills shows that she turned him in. She grieved her husband's execution, crying as he is "floated" from The Ark.
Clarke is Abby's only daughter and her only remaining family. Clarke is the dearest thing to Abby, and she is willing to do anything to keep her alive. She loves her daughter more than anything, desperately clinging to her on the day of her descent to Earth. Abby continues to show this love in her quest to reclaim a shuttle and follow Clarke to Earth.
Abby seems fierce and strong and knows what she is doing, which is a quality a parent should show for their kid. She seems concered about Clarke and hopes for her best.
Callie is Abby's closest friend. She and Callie are close enough that she would ask Callie to watch over her daughter moments before she is to be executed. Callie fights fiercely for Abby, trying everything to stop her death. The two share a close moment before the execution.
Abby and Kane are rivals, constantly at opposing views when it comes to decisions. Kane himself was eager to have her "floated" when she saved the life Chancellor Jaha, pointed out by Callie and Jaha himself as a move to eliminate opposition.
She and The Chancellor are neutral towards each other. Jaha saves her because she saved his life, stopping the execution. He doesn't support her ideas when it comes time to vote, taking a deal of convincing on her part to keep him from going ahead with reducing The Ark's population.
Abby and Raven share the fact that they are intelligent women in a position of esteem on The Ark. Raven and she share a common reason for wanting to go to Earth. Abby says that Raven reminds her of her daughter.
In the Pilot, Abby's daughter Clarke comes out in fear if they were going to get killed. Abby explains that 'The 100' with Clarke are going to go to Earth because The Ark is dying. When The Hundred leave Abby is looking at some Delinquent information. Abby soon comes to know that Jaha is shot and goes to see him. Abby assists with the Chancellor's surgery. It is come to know that Kane wants to execute Abby to reduce population. When Abby is about to get executed Jaha saves her life telling Kane that he will deal with him later.
In Earth Skills, Abby goes to see how the Delinquents are doing at Earth. At the same time Chancellor Jaha approaches and finds out his son Wells Jaha was killed even though its not true. Abby comforts Chancellor Jaha and tells him that everything is fine. Soon later Abby meets Raven and she says that she knows someone like her. The Council have a meeting and Abby votes for Earth being survivable. In order to do that Abby invites Raven because she is a mechanic and can possibly fix the Mir-3. Abby is in shock seeing that more Delinquents are taking their wristbands off.
In Earth Kills, After Clarke learns the truth about her mom's part in the death of her father, she takes off her wristband telling The Ark she is dead. Doing this it hurts Abby's feeling, thinking that Clarke is most likely dead.
In Murphy's Law, an Air Compression Pump is needed for the pod to help sustain landing when it reaches Earth. As this part is missing, Raven goes to Nygel asking for it. Declining, she tells Abby who trades Nigel morphine for the part. Nygel later tells Kane about this, giving him a good reason to get rid of Abby. He confronts her while Raven is finishing up the pod. While Abby is being arrested Raven launches in the pod.
