Abu is a Shavadai and son of the Chieftain Moughal from the planet Simarka.



He appeared to be somewhat of the local healer as he was very focused on medicines as a strength for the tribe and was seen applying an anesthetic salve to a wounded tribesman. He was the first person on the planet to meet SG-1 when they came through the gate and was saved by them from a pack of feral dogs. When his fellow tribesmen caught up to SG-1 and Abu they were going to kill Captain Samantha Carter but Abu convinced them not to by telling them she saved his life. A little later however, when he saw her dressed as a Shavadai, he discarded his gratitude and decided to sell her to a rival tribal chief—Turghan—to get Turghan's daughter Nya for himself. Turghan didn't go along with his logic though and offered 300 weights of gold instead. (SG1: "Emancipation")

After his father's death later that year, Abu returned Shavadai society to its previous customs (treating women like property), earning him the continued ire of Jack O'Neill, referring to him (Abu) as a "conniving little weasel." (SG1: "Do No Harm")
