When speaking of her interest, she tends to get very excited. She can also come off as sassy and rude.

Nature: Despite the constant battle against the non-believers, Madeline remains optimistic and a happy person all together. She loves what she does, even if things tend to not work out for her.

Description: A woman in her late twenties, she has trouble acting like what is expected of her age. Her style speaks to her younger side, keeping her short hair up with ribbons and picking out outfits that reflect young trends.

Personal History:

Ever since she was little, Madeline was always fascinated with things beyond human understanding. It didn't help that the birth of horror films happened when she was young. This resulted in much begging to her father to go to the cinema, and much whining from her mother. She gorged herself on books about science fiction and the super natural. The famous photo of the Loch Ness monster peaked her interest in photographs, and in her early teens she saved up enough money to buy a Six-20 Brownie camera. After she filled up a roll of film, her favorite time was going to the drugstore and getting them printed. She eventually learned how to set up a dark room in her basement, which upset her mother quite a bit.

With a knack for photography and after a failed year at college, she slowly wedged herself into the magazine business. Eventually, she was able to land a job doing photographs for a New England magazine. Her fascination with the strange never died down. With a co-worker friend, she published a local newsletter about recent sightings, photographs, and conspiracies. Her work on this newsletter often got her in trouble with just about anyone, as there is no such thing as a "restricted" area to Maddie. Her trouble making reached its peak when a certain foundation caught her snapping a candid shot of something she shouldn't have, resulting in recruitment.

Miscellaneous:

  • Favorite candy flavor is butterscotch.
  • Was born in the South before moving to the New England area. She can sometimes summon up a southern accent.
  • Favorite color is green.
  • Has a variety of ribbons for her hair.
