Madeleine is a Peddler. Abandoned as a child, and raised by Nuns, Madeleine seeks money above all else, having come to loath poverty.
She is first encountered by the Arisen in Cassardis, where she seeks an escort to The Encampment, wherein begins Madeleine's "relationship" with the Arisen, which on the surface appears to revolve around Madeleine pleading poverty in exchange for loans of Gold.
Later she is encountered again in Gran Soren where she has set up shop in an Abandoned House in the Venery (Madeleine's Shop). Through greed rather than malice she becomes involved in a conspiracy involving Salvation and Julien - providing information to the Knight for gold.
Ultimately her lack of moral compass is her undoing, and she is sought by the Gran Soren authorities for trading in Salvation's Badges. Forced to flee she loses (mostly) everything, and becomes a peddler once more.
Though somewhat callous and manipulative in her pursuit of wealth Madeleine is not without humanity, and possibly, beneath the facade there is, after all a heart of gold.

- "Well Madeleine, this is a fine bit of fortune you've come into... Come to Gran Soren with riches in mind...instead find only cravens, cowed by dragon-fear. The streets are chaos, my goods ruined or lost..." (initial monolgue)
- "Yes, well, enough idle chatter. To business, then?"
- "A girl must take what advantage she can. Don't you agree?"
- "Time is a funny thing. It seems only yesterday you smuggled me from Cassardis... Those were hard days, for a certainty... Survival was not a given, let alone with such grace and beauty as I managed, hmm?"
During A Diverting Excursion
- "But, one moment... Did I not... Ah, just so! You lent me a tidy sum as I fled Cassardis! In truth, I don't recall the exact figure... But worry not -- I shall repay you with all speed! ...Just as soon as my shop turns a profit. I may enjoy the jingle of coin more than most, but I'm not one to ignore debt."
- "A knightly customer? Oh, we get all kinds in here, Arisen, but how is it your business? Surely 'tis not jealously steers your questions? Oh, fie! You needn't worry on that account! I have eyes only for the purses of any what pass through that door."
- "That knight comes here with some regularity. He asked the names of those who purchased the rare medallions I came upon not long ago. His reward was impressive to say the least. I speak of money, fool! Not...other things! Fie, but your jealously is a thing to behold."
