Aunt Dahlia

Dahlia Travers is a recurring fictional character in the Jeeves stories of English comic writer P. G. Wodehouse, being best known as Bertie Wooster's bonhomous, red-faced Aunt Dahlia, she is much beloved in contrast with her sister, Bertie's Aunt Agatha. Proprietor of the weekly newspaper for women Milady's Boudoir, she is married to Tom Travers, mother of Angela Travers and Bonzo Travers, employs the supremely gifted French chef Anatole at her country house, Brinkley Court. Aside from Jeeves and Bertie Wooster, Aunt Dahlia appears in more Jeeves novels, more Jeeves stories overall, than any other character, she makes an appearance including seven novels and seven short stories. Only Aunt Agatha and Bingo Little appear in more Jeeves short stories. Wodehouse spent much of his youth with his many aunts and uncles, as his parents were away in Hong Kong; the character of Aunt Dahlia was inspired by one of Louisa Deane. Louisa Deane was the sister of Wodehouse's mother, Eleanor Deane, Mary Bathurst Deane, who inspired the character of Aunt Agatha.

Dahlia Travers lives at Brinkley Court outside Market Snodsbury in Worcestershire. She is married to Tom Travers, has two children, Angela Travers and Bonzo Travers, she appears to have been married sometime once before, since Bertie says that she "married old Tom Travers en secondes noces, as I believe the expression is, the year Bluebottle won the Cambridgeshire". Bertie enjoys her company, says of her, "There are few males or females whose society I enjoy more than that of this genial sister of my late father", she is "a large, genial soul", Bertie praises "her humanity, sporting qualities, general good-eggishness". Though friendly, she is capable, with effort, of going into an authoritative "grande dame act" if the situation calls for it, assuming a serious expression and cold, aristocratic tone. While she has reasonable objectives, she has no objection to resorting to methods such as burglary or blackmail in order to achieve those goals. Described as being built along the lines of Mae West, Aunt Dahlia is short and solid, with a reddish complexion.

According to Bertie, her face takes on a purple tinge in moments of strong emotion. She wears tortoiseshell-rimmed spectacles for reading, appears to style her hair as her hair is variously described as her "carefully fixed coiffure", "her Marcel-wave", "her perm", her most notable personal characteristic is her carrying voice. Riding in her youth for years with such fox-hunting packs as the Quorn and the Pytchley, she tends to address Bertie, over the phone or indoors, as if "shouting across ploughed fields in a high wind." She sometimes uses hunting cries in regular speech, including "Yoicks!", "Tally ho!", "Gone away!", "Hark forrard!". She once put her carrying voice to use at a village concert, in which she sang "Every Nice Girl Loves A Sailor" while wearing a sailor suit, her performance was well received. As she tells Bertie, "I had them rolling in the aisles. Three encores, so many bows that I got a crick in my back."Dahlia employs the French chef Anatole, whose cooking is revered by many characters her husband Tom and her nephew Bertie Wooster.

Bertie is quick to accept an invitation to Brinkley Court for the chance to enjoy Anatole's cooking, she uses the promise of his cooking to get Bertie to do various tasks for her. Her butler is Seppings. Before Seppings, Aunt Dahlia employed a butler named Pomeroy, a noble fellow, before him, who turned out to be a thief. Aunt Dahlia has a large, sleepy black cat called Augustus, or "Gus". In "Clustering Round Young Bingo", Aunt Dahlia hires the incomparable chef Anatole. In "Jeeves and the Song of Songs", she wants Tuppy Glossop, who has broken his engagement to Angela Travers for the opera singer Cora Bellinger, to go back to Angela. In "The Spot of Art", she wants Bertie to accompany her on a cruise. In "The Love That Purifies", her son Bonzo competes against her nephew Thomas, Aunt Agatha's son, in a good conduct contest. In "The Ordeal of Young Tuppy", she again wants Tuppy Glossop, who has fallen for the athletic Miss Dalgleish, to return to Angela; as a Governor of Market Snodsbury Grammar School, she asks Bertie in Right Ho, Jeeves to award prizes and give a speech at the school, though Bertie pushes this task onto Gussie Fink-Nottle, whom Aunt Dahlia always calls "Spink-Bottle".

In the same novel, Dahlia lost the money to pay her magazine's printers at baccarat and has Bertie and Jeeves help her get more money from her husband. In The Code of the Woosters, she asks Bertie to sneer at a silver cow-creamer, after Sir Watkyn Bassett unfairly obtains the object, she tasks Bertie with stealing the cow-creamer from Sir Watkyn. In Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit, she temporarily pawns her pearl necklace to buy a serial from Daphne Dolores Morehead to help sell the Milady's Boudoir to the newspaper magnate Mr. Trotter. In "Jeeves Makes an Omelette", a story that takes place before the sale of her magazine, she asks Bertie to steal a painting so she can get a story for her magazine. In Jeeves in the Offing, she hires Sir Roderick Glossop to pretend to be a butler at Brinkley Court so he can investigate the sanity of a man courting her goddaughter Phyllis Mills. In Stiff Upper Lip, she tells Bertie about how Sir Watkyn Bassett bragged about obtaining a black amber statuette. In "Jeeves and the Greasy Bird", a story that takes place before the sale of Milady's Boudoir, the writer Blair Eggleston writes for the magazine, Aunt Dahlia and Jeeves save Bertie from the underhanded theatrical agent Jas Waterbury.

In Much Obliged, she provides her house as a base of operations for the candidacy of Harold "Gin
