Appears in Days Gone

Cooper is a minor character featured in Days Gone.


Cooper was a researcher in National Emergency Response Organization, which in 2019 was ordered to send a team and take DNA samples from a mutant Freaker which had put a tracker, but went missing with all their 4-member team when entered into the cave where the Freaker lived, but all contact ceased soon after. More than 12 hours later, his friend James O'Brian tasked the errant Deacon St. John into the cave to find the missing team, and St. John find, one by one, three members already dead. Deacon learns from Cooper, who was alive but dying, that they were wiped out by a single Freaker, which the researcher calls the "Reacher."

O'Brian, when informed about Cooper's survival, offered to send a rescue team, but St. John tried to get Cooper on its foot, but found that he had both legs broken, and that his hazmat suit was compromised, so he may be infected. Cooper asked to talk with his wife Jenn but barely had time to say anything before finally dying.


Deacon St. John avenged Cooper and his team when he killed the Reacher, and retrieved the samples before giving them to O'Brian. He was angry about NERO's isolation, and O'Brian pointed than Cooper was his friend, not Deacons'.
