Otto Delaney was a SAMCRO Member who is now deceased, formerly incarcerated. His wife was Luann Delaney, Gemma Teller Morrow's best friend. Since his incarceration, Luann's made ends meet producing "mature porn" movies. He has her name tattooed on his left arm. He has a sister with the ADA in Lodi. He was in jail from at least 1999 to 2013.
He is first seen protecting Chuck in prison from triad members.
In the beginning of Season 2 Otto explains the increase of violence in prison with the Aryans, to Clay and Jax. Then, he is ambushed by inmate Squirrel and two others who are affiliated with the Aryan Brotherhood. He was able to fight them off for a while until they pinned him down and Squirrel stabbed him in the eye. The attack left him with only 10% vision in one eye and blind in the other.
During the season finale, Otto and another inmate (presumably a member of the Black Guerrilla Family) attack the Aryan who had previously attacked Otto. Otto stabs the Aryan in his neck with a shiv killing him, unaware there is a camera in the library watching it happen.
Otto tells Clay and Bobby that he has been sentenced to death for the stabbing of the Aryan who attacked him, and that he has to resort to a public defender who, apparently, does not speak English well. He explains that it is felt that he "continue[s] to exhibit a pattern of aggressive behavior," and that this means he will not be able to plea to a lesser charge. He asks Lenny the Pimp, another imprisoned SAMCRO Member, for information on Jimmy O and the Russians, which he passes on to the club through a coded message.
Season FourEditAt the start of season four, Otto remains on death row while the rest of the club leaves prison. However, they have a good-bye present smuggled to his cell in the form of a razor, which he uses on his wrist, seemingly to deny the legal system the pleasure of taking his life. However, it appears that he was just trying to get into the prison infirmary. While he is strapped to a bed in the infirmary, an incarcerated Russian mafia member is brought in and restrained, he is later killed by Otto with a shiv. Before he bleeds out, Otto tells him "this is for Jax Teller." The rest of the time he was continuously tortured by images of his deceased wife by Lincoln Potter to try and get him to rat on the club, and eventually he does turn in information about Bobby Elvis in exchange for a faster execution date and visitation privileges for Lenny 'The Pimp' Janowitz because according to Potter, Bobby killed Luann. He is last seen when he forces Bobby to read the list of all his former criminal acts and then Bobby is taken away.
Tara volunteers at the prison in an attempt to turn Otto's statement, this is lead by her bringing in some of his deceased wife (Luann Delaney) perfume. He gets Tara to put some on her wrist and he smells it and starts masturbating to the smell. After a few episodes he says he will turn the statement around, if she brings him one more thing of his deceased wife (Luann Delaney), he asks for a crucifix of hers so he can say one last prayer, Tara puts it around his neck and he asks her to leave so he can pray in peace. When Tara leaves he presses the assistance button so the other doctors come and take him out, them not knowing that he has a blunt object under his clothes around his neck, a male orderly/officer removes Otto's right hand from restraint and he punches the orderly/officer in the crotch, dropping him to the floor and stabs the female nurse in the neck about 5 times. It is later revealed that Otto did this because it would mean his testimony for the RICO case against SAMCRO would be dismissed. In the season finale, Otto bites off his own tongue when asked to give his testimony to the police about killing the nurse. He throws his tongue at the window that Lee Toric is watching from. This action was supposed to kill the RICO case and make Tara innocent of the accessory to murder charge, but ultimately fails when Tara is arrested at the end of the episode.
Lee Toric has Otto punished by daily beatings and rapings by prison inmates.
Toric arranges a meeting between Clay and Otto. Clay slips Otto a shiv. Toric returns to ask Otto to write an incriminating statement. Otto's statement insults Pamela Toric and in a fit of rage, Toric begins choking Otto, who stabs Toric repeatedly. Toric falls to the floor and Otto follows him. The guards burst into the room as Otto slices Toric's throat and the guards shoot Otto repeatedly, killing him.
Otto was loyal to his club, no matter how much he had to suffer, he protected SAMCRO until the end. He was quite an intelligent man, often reading books in prison. He had also great pain tolerance, biting off his own tongue in order to show that he is still loyal to SAMCRO.
