Berenice Houser ia in charge of the Archives department of the Ankh-Morpork Times. She is a divorced but vaguely optimistic woman in her forties with a soft spot for the clergy - one who continues to trust in her Gods when she can no longer trust in Men. It is entirely possible that one day, when the Times has been around long enough to have an On This Day... feature, she will select and edit the material for publication. While divorced, and while by no means being as blatant about it as a Mrs Whitlow, she wouldn't mind if Mr Right, or Mr I'll Settle For Almost Right, were to come along sometime soon. She belongs to a God of the Month club, and this month her thoughts are turning to Om as the answer to her unspoken prayer. This is due to the Omnian priest with the funny teeth who is patronising her archive. Although she really ought to be more discerning, as this priest is not all he seems to be...

It is not known if she is related to the University student wizard "Rubber" Houser, who invented the Graphical Device.
