|“||Making young girls work is child abuse! It's a breach of international law!||”|
Abnes, written as Abness in the Japanese version, is the self-proclaimed idol of the Seven Sages. She works with them because they strive to create a world free from goddess rule and she is absolutely against the idea of little girls being made into goddesses and forced to work as Console Patron Units (CPUs).
Abnes has long sandy-brown hair with teal eyes and bright pink bow on top of her head with skull in the center along with red lining and white frills on the end. She wears a matching bright pink lolita-style dress accompanied with numerous white frills in layers and a red bow in the center with yet another skull. On her legs are light pink stockings with bright pink ankle high boots with red ribbons in the center.
While Abnes is much older than she appears, she is shown to be quite childish at times. She dislikes little girls having to work, calling it to be a "breach of international law".
Abnes is true to her beliefs, as when she found out that the Seven Sages were forcefully turning little children into goddesses, she left the organization.

Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory
Abnes first appears in front of Neptune and the others when she barges into Planeptune's Basilicom in order to investigate upon hearing news of there being another CPU from the Seven Sages. She examines Neptune to see if she qualifies for being a "little girl". When Abnes calls Neptune a "little girl", the two get into a fight about who is the real little girl which ends in Neptune beating up Abnes and making her flee.
Sometime after this, now that the Seven Sages were aware of more CPUs, Abnes spied on Neptune and Plutia to see what they were doing. Much to her disappointment, all they did was play and take naps.
During the Lowee events, she arrives to tell Blanc about how the Planeptune CPUs were visiting Lastation. While Blanc shrugged this off, Abnes manages to send Blanc into a state of panic after convincing her that the visit might be to learn from Lastation, which would cause Lowee's shares to plummet even more.
Later on, Abnes hosts a live show with the battle with Blanc against Neptune, Noire and Plutia to all of of Gamindustri, with Pirachu serving as the cameraman. In the ensuing battle, Blanc is defeated by the three CPUs. Due to this, all of Gamindustri saw Blanc's defeat which caused her to lose all of her shares and be unable to transform, enabling Mr. Badd to take over Lowee. After this, Abnes, satisfied with the events, leaves Lowee to return back home.
During the events where the Seven Sages begin kidnapping children in attempt to turn them into goddesses using CPU Memories, Abnes ends up leaving the Seven Sages after finding out despite their attempts to hide their actions from her. She informs the Neptune and the others to where she believes they are holding the children and asks them to save the children.
In the True End, Abnes joins the newly reformed Seven Sages started by Rei Ryghts that strives to help the CPUs and not rally against them.
