Dahlia Wooster (Bertie's good but amoral aunt), of Brinkley Court, Brinkley-cum-Snodsfield-in-the-Marsh, publisher for four years of an unprofitable weekly paper for the halfwitted woman called Milady's Boudoir, to which Bertie once contributed an article on What the Well-Dressed Man Is Wearing (in Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit the magazine is sold to a mug up Liverpool way named L.G. Trotter), wife of Thomas P. Travers en secondes noces in Clustering Round Young Bingo, Jeeves and the Song of Songs, Right Ho, Jeeves, The Code of the Woosters, Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit, Jeeves Makes an Omelet, Jeeves in the Offing, Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves, Much Obliged, Jeeves, Aunts Aren't Gentlemen. Married Tom Travers the year Bluebottle won the Cambridgeshire; mother of Angela Travers in Jeeves and the Song of Songs, The Ordeal of Young Tuppy, Right Ho, Jeeves, Much Obliged, Jeeves. Short and solid, like a scrum half in Rugby, jovial and bonhomous, her lightest whisper is like someone calling the cattle home across the sands of Dee. Her vocal power and energetic style recall the days when she hunted foxes with the Quorn, and occasionally the Pytchley. Controls Bertie with the power of her chef Anatole's cuisine. Her son Bonzo is a pest in The Love That Purifies, where she wagers the services of Anatole that Agatha's son Thos will lose a good-behavior contest. Sister of Agatha, George Wooster (Lord Yaxley), and Bertie's father.
