Cooke is the owner of Colonial Taphouse, a bar in Diamond City. He is involved in a relationship with Darcy Pembroke, to the chagrin of her husband Paul Pembroke. Upon the Sole Survivor entering his bar for the first time, a fight breaks out between the two.
Cooke is an integral part of the quest Diamond City Blues. Upon entering the bar with Mr. Pembroke, who pulls a gun on Cooke to try and scare him away from Darcy, a speech check must be made. If failed, Paul will attempt to kill Cooke. If passed, Cooke lets the player character in on his upcoming plan for caps to try and defuse the situation and make things equal with Paul. He has been arranging chem deals with a local smuggler, and intends to kill all parties involved during the next trade, taking both their caps and the chems.
Cooke also has a daughter named Colette. If Cooke goes missing or is killed during this quest, she will appear in town asking about his whereabouts. If Colette discovers the player character had a hand in his death, she will confront the player and attack the Sole Survivor unless a speech check is passed. If he disappears but is not dead, but Paul Pembroke thinks that he is, he tells her about it. You don't have the option to tell her he survived, you can only blame it on someone else (red and orange speech check) or tell her that you don't know who killed him (orange).
Cooke is a drug addict, which is revealed by breaking into his home and seeing all the chems on the second and third floor.
An entry in the Institute's security terminal identifies him as an informant for the Institute as well.

If the story line progresses to where Cooke leaves, and you follow him, you will eventually find him settling in Bunker Hill. He walks in and takes a seat on a chair. No matter how long you wait, he does not move from that chair. However he doesn't remain there, as the game deletes the character after a fast travel.
Henry Cooke appears only in Fallout 4.
