Scoop Daley is a reporter for the American newspaper/magazine Press Guardian.
When we first meet him, his last name is spelled Daily as in daily newspaper but then it switched to Daley until the last of the five illustrated adventures where it is back the Daily. Might it be two different people? Yes, especially considering the final one which has a different vibe to it but for now let us consider them one person.
That person is a newshound who has chosen for his beat the world and more specifically it seems, regions involved in war. Four of the tales depict his working assignments in occupied France, pointing out instances where the invading Germans were working hard to suppress speech and other freedoms. The last tale apparently comes much later, likely after the War was over and dealt more with one man's personal greed.
Daley is the kind of reporter who shows that while the pen might be mightier than the sword, the fist can be pretty persuasive, too. Apparently he enjoys having his knuckles meet someone's jaw because he is leaping into such action at the turn of a head. Granted, the people he so dubs invariably are needing it but it is hard to see when he has time to write anything.
Graced with a healthy head of auburn or light red hair, except in the final adventure where he is very much a blond, Daley is a handsome man and quite energetic. It would be reasonable to place his age in the late 20s or very early 30s based on his athleticism as well as his impetuousness.
Daley has a way with the women as befits all good action heroes, though in one adventure when he saves a beautiful woman, she turns out to be a major player in the German occupations and who repays his gallantry by musing she might "have the Gestapo only remove your eyes and tongue".
