Major Ryan Cooper' is a Hero unit in the Age of Empires III campaign. He fought in the War of 1812 and was remembered for his Cavalry. In the Age of Empires III Campain: Steel, he is assigned to protect Amelia whilst she and her Railroad Workers continue laying tracks towards California. He becomes a good friend of Amelia and they work together to defend an American fort from the invading Mexican army. Amelia is lured into a trap by Beaumont by Kanyenke and Cooper arrive to help her. Cooper travels with Amelia until he is attacked by Beaumont and two pet wolves in the Everglades, Florida. He confronts Beaumont and manages to shoot one of the wolves before being mauled by the other. He was buried by Amelia in Florida. He is voiced by James Horan.
Major Cooper can train Hussars, but has no special attacks. If you get a certain card from the Home City , he can be promoted to Colonel and his attack and Hit Points are increased. Cooper is a very effective infantry unit if handled carefully and has a high amount of hitpoints , very good attack, resists 0.40 damage, and has as much speed as normal infantry. He is, however, weak at fighting Boneguards.
