- "Cooper's a professional! He can handle himself!"
- —Udesky, after being forced to leave Cooper behind(src)
Cooper was a mercenary hired by Udesky to accompany Paul and Amanda Kirby to Isla Sorna in search for their son, Eric. Cooper was eaten by a Spinosaurus soon after the Kirby's chartered plane landed on the island.
His sidearm of choice was a Heckler and Koch USP pistol but he was also skilled in firing the 20mm Einhorn rifle.Eric on Isla Sorna. When asked by Billy Brennan, he claims he met the Kirbys through church (although this was likely a lie to hide his mercenary status). While being in the plane, Alan Grant tried to stop the plane from landing into the island and Cooper came up behind Dr. Grant and hit him to be unconscious. He was the weapons specialist of the mission to find Eric. Isla Sorna had a restricted rule to not allow landing, which eventually led to his death.When the plane landed on the island, Cooper was several meters away after moving into a very-far forest. When a gigantic Spinosaurus attacked, he put up a fight, as gunshots could be heard from the forest. M.B. Nash and Udesky had to leave him behind so they could get Grant, Billy, and the Kirbys off the runway. When Cooper ran out of ammunition, he fled back to the landing zone, nursing a wound to his left arm. He yelled out for help in front of the plane, which is about to take off, and the Spinosaurus snatched him up by its jaws, devouring him almost immediately.
His sunglasses, femur, and watch were later found in Spinosaurus dung by the survivors.
Source of characterEdit
Cooper may have been inspired by a character in Dino Crisis named Cooper who gets eaten by a Tyrannosaurus all the way at the start of the game, just like being eaten by the Spinosaurus at the beginning of the film.
