Character history

Harley Davidson Cooper, named after her father's favorite motorcycle, grew up on the wrong side of Springfield's 5th Street and was raised by her older brother, Frank, ever since the death of their father and their mother's desertion. Since they had no parents they were forced to depend on each other.

In 1987, Harley would become pregnant with Dylan Lewis's child. Harley eventually give up the child, Daisy, for adoption. Harley would later marry Alan-Michael Spaulding, but the marriage would result in divorce. In 1993, Harley was shocked to learn that her father, Buzz Cooper, was alive. It was believed he had died in combat during the Vietnam War, despite his return, Harley and her brother wanted nothing to do with their father. Harley would marry A.C. Mallet and the two would leave for Florida later that year.

Harley returned to Springfield, divorced from Mallet, in 1997 to learn that the daughter she gave up for adoption years ago was back looking for her. Daisy, now going by Susan, wanted to find her birth mother after her adoptive mother passed away. Later, Harley would marry Phillip Spaulding and bore him a son, but again the marriage would end in divorce and Harley found comfort in the arms of Rick Bauer, who she also had a son with, Jude. Harley though did not stay with Rick and developed a relationship with Gus Aitoro, who she would later marry.
