Abda was a member of the secret Stranglers cult, appearing in Dreams of Steel and described by Lady as "a shifty-eyed little villain who looked like a villain no matter what". He was a red rumel man, meaning he was an experienced killer, and of Vehdna background. Abda was assigned by his jamadar, Narayan Singh, as bodyguard for Lady for a time when she was in Taglios. There, at the Taglian olive grove and mineral baths, he and Ram assisted Lady in foiling Chandra Chan Tal's assassination plot against her. Abda used his red rumel to snap the neck of the man who wielded a tulwar.

Abda was present with Lady, Sindhu, and others during a tense meeting with Mogaba at the Siege of Dejagore. After this, he disappears from the Annals; he may have been among the many Strangler fatalities of later events, but it is unconfirmed.
