* Aided Dr. Britt Westbourne with her pregnancy scam in exchange for a promotion as lab manager.
Current: General Hospital lab manager
Past: General Hospital lab tech
General Hospital lab technician Brad Cooper was promoted to lab manager in May 2013 by Dr. Britt Westbourne over his colleague Ellie Trout. Because Ellie was so much more qualified than Brad, she, her boyfriend Damian Spinelli, and her coworkers Elizabeth Webber, Sabrina Santiago, and Felix DuBois were suspicious that Brad had done something nefarious for Britt in order to gain the promotion.
In fact, Brad had helped Britt make everyone believe she was having a complication in her pregnancy in a bid to get Dr. Patrick Drake to invite her to live with him. Britt was perpetuating a lie that Dr. Patrick Drake was the father of her baby.
Meanwhile, Brad actively pursued coworker Felix DuBois, who was repelled by his aggressive tactics and association with Britt. Brad also came on strong with Michael Corinthos III, and even tried to blackmail him into having sex when he found out Michael had feelings for Kiki Jerome. At the time, Kiki was married to Michael's brother Morgan Corinthos and was thought to be Michael's biological cousin.
Eventually Brad and Felix got closer, but that ended when Britt gave birth and told everyone Brad was the father. When Brad had no interest being in the child’s life, Felix was put off. To gain his respect back, Brad went to the christening of baby Connie Falconeri and revealed to everyone that the baby’s parents were not Dante and Lulu Falconeri, but Maxie Jones and Damian Spinelli.
Eventually Felix began to come around again, but Brad’s affiliation with Britt continued to be an issue. On Halloween 2013, Brad told Felix he wasn’t the baby’s father after all. Just when Brad thought he had no chance with Felix, he met Lucas Jones at the Floating Rib. Over drinks, they commiserated about their similar upbringings as both were adopted, but biologically each was from notorious mob families. Brad’s biological father was Kim Wu, who was taken down in the 1980s by Robert Scorpio.
Lucas and Felix had a one-night stand, but the next day Felix asked Brad out on a date and he agreed. Brad told Lucas that things could not go any further with him and he went on a nice, sex-free date with Felix. When Felix cancelled his second date with Brad in order to help his friend Sabrina, Brad grabbed a drink with Lucas instead and they had sex again.
