Cookie Booker is a minor antagonist in Carmen Sandiego. She is the bookkeeper and accountant of V.I.L.E..
Before the events of the series, Cookie has been working for V.I.L.E. for years as the accountant for their illegal activities, where she would be managing the organization's finances and collecting data. She comes to the Isle of V.I.L.E. annually to upload an encrypted hard drive containing their sensitive data concerning operation reports and projected earnings, as well as classified information supplied by V.I.L.E. operatives from all over the world, to the isolated central servers, due to V.I.L.E.'s mistrust of wireless uploading.
Ever since she was a child, Black Sheep, being the prankster she was, would always throw a water balloon at Cookie and her escort when they landed. During one of these pranks, Cookie's escort dropped his cell phone after being punched by Coach Brunt, which Black Sheep pick-pocketed.
On the day she left V.I.L.E., Black Sheep apologized to her mentor Cookie for all of the pranks she pulled on her. As she left for the server room, Cookie recommended Black Sheep that she should leave pick-pocketing and such behind, and go into white-collar crime. She went to go after Black Sheep when she realized she stole the hard-drive, but was tied-up by the latter and was thrown into a closet. Black Sheep stole Cookie's red fedora and matching jacket, which she wore into tricking the guards in order to escape.
Cookie Booker reappears in "The Fashionista Caper", where she would attempt onto become Shadowsan's replacement on V.I.L.E's Faculty by working with Dr. Bellum and Countess Cleo on a scheme using mind-controlled supermodels as thieves, but it was failed.
Cookie appears to be an homage to be the previous incarnation of the 1995 Carmen Sandiego, as she shares several traits with the character:
Her voice actress, Rita Moreno, was the original voice of Carmen Sandiego in the 1994 animated series.
During her talk with the 2019 character, the elevator music played the theme song of the aforementioned series.
Booker slightly resembles an older version of 1994's Carmen. Even Booker's coat is evocative of the 1994 version, right down to the orange stripe on the fedora.
This resemblance has started to led fans to theorize that Cookie may be the "original" Carmen, given her connections to VILE are parallel to the 1994 version's role and how Black Sheep's Carmen persona originated from her theft of Booker's coat which contained "Carmen Brand Outerwear, San Diego" on its brand name tag.
Her name is a reference to the expression "cook the books", which refers to altering accounting records illegally.
It is unknown what happened to Cookie after the rest of the V.I.L.E. Faculty were arrested, but it's possible that she may have been arrested as well if the faculty ratted out of her once they were taken into custody.
