Genoa City is also his hometown and he intends to start his own private investigation company, tired of traveling all the time but his attraction to Abby is obviously a huge influence on his decision.

Y&R Spoilers: Abby Newman Is A Y&R Legacy Character
Abby, the daughter of “The Young and The Restless” legacy characters Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) and Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson) was born Abigail Rachel Carlton Newman , conceived via artificial insemination. Ashley Abbott was desperate to have a child to replace the one she aborted years ago, and stole Victor Newman’s semen donation to a sperm bank and secretly had herself inseminated.
Little Abby grew up believing Brad Carlton (Don Diamont), the man her mother was married to at the time was her father. When Ashley suffered a bout with cancer, she recorded a video message for Abby to see when she grew up, revealing that Victor was her biological father. Abby saw it without Ashley knowing it and told Victor. Though the truth was out, she viewed both Brad and Victor as father figures.
