Abigail wants revenge. She is in love with Proctor and angry at Elizabeth for both being Proctor's wife and dismissing her as house girl. Abigail is also rebellious. Her naked in the forest dance sparks of a series of events that envelopes the village. Abigail seeks to protect herself by accusing others of witchery. Abigail is a pretty nasty person. It would seem she craves attention even if it is at the expense of others.
