Abba Stronginthearm was a senior dwarf member of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch. While initially something of a firebrand, involved in stoking up anti-Troll feeling amongst dwarfs in Ankh-Morpork, he was recruited by Carrot Ironfoundersson into the Watch/militia as a corporal to assist easing the resulting riots (see Men at Arms). Stronginthearm made it to being one of the senior dwarf sergeants, and was frequently spotted at the front desk fielding complaints. Sadly, he was killed by the maniac, Carcer, whilst off duty (buying a rat pie) in the events of Night Watch).

He was described by Commander Vimes as "just a decent dwarf who was paid to be a copper."
He lived in New Cobblers with his parents.
