Absorption

Absorption was the process by which the Abzorbaloff feasted on his victims. (TV: Love & Monsters)

In 2007, the Abzorbaloff, disguised as a human named "Victor Kennedy", absorbed his secretary after finding LINDA's website. (WC: Tardisode 10)

Appearing at LINDA's base on Maccateer Street, Victor joined the group and absorbed Bliss after asking her for a word in private; her face ended up embedded into his posterior at the right buttock, leaving her subject to him farting on her and leaving her barely able to breathe or speak. Some weeks later, Victor used the same ploy to absorb Bridget Sinclair, whose face ended up on his right shoulder.

At least one week later, Victor absorbed Colin Skinner after convincing him to remain to track down Bridget with him as Ursula Blake and Elton Pope left the group; his face ended up in the left side of the Abzorbaloff's lower abdomen. When Ursula and Elton returned, they discovered the Abzorbaloff, who revealed his absorption abilities and his victims. By threatening to absorb Jackie Tyler to get to the Doctor he tricked Ursula into being absorbed and went to absorb Elton as well. The absorbed LINDA members were encouraged by the Tenth Doctor to fight back and pull at the Abzorbaloff's stomach. Elton then broke his limitation field, causing his absorption abilities to go out of control and melt him into the Earth. His absorbed victims, except Ursula, died with him. The Doctor had his sonic screwdriver to key into the absorption matrix and separate Ursula from his remains. Though, as the Doctor noted, it was too late for total reconstruction, Ursula was salvaged as a face embedded in a slab of concrete. (TV: Love & Monsters) (TV: Love & Monsters)

The Abzorbaloff was survived by his father who, in 2009, confronted the Doctor. Having already absorbed three human victims, it was this Abzorbaloff's intention to "guzzle up [his] smushed up remains" after leaving him to the Krakanord, after which he would absorb "every little meatbag" on Earth, only to be melted by the Krakanord.
