Delene Cooper is a Lower City woman married to Beka Cooper's cousin Philben. She is implied to be tightfisted and would "have Phil's hide" if she caught him gambling. She has four children, all unnamed.
While little is specifically written about Delene, much can be inferred from the brief bits of description in Bloodhound. She is married to Phil Cooper, making her Beka's cousin by marriage. They have four children and are not especially wealthy, but seem to be content enough. Phil is a carter, and Delene is presumably a housewife. She disapproves of her husband gambling.
Personality and Traits
Like her biography, not much is stated about Delene. Judging from Phil's gambling friends and their reaction to Beka pulling him away, she is probably forceful and won't put up with her husband's antics. Like most persons from the Lower City, she is more than likely to be very careful with money, an idea reinforced by her hatred of gambling.
