The name Abel is a reference to the Kain Highwind of Final Fantasy IV. This weapon first appeared in Final Fantasy IV Advance. Abel comes from the Hebrew name הֶבֶל Hevel, meaning "breath". A lance is a long wooden shaft with a pointed metal head, used as a weapon by knights and cavalry soldiers when charging. The word comes from the Latin word lancea meaning "light spear".
