The Dresden Files: Portland
White Court Vampire
A White Court vampire, Madeline is the fraternal twin of Madrigal Raith and a cousin of Lara, Thomas and Inari Raith. We haven’t see much of her “onscreen” in Harry’s casefiles.
What we do know: she once picked up a rose that was a gift between lovers, and it poisoned her so badly that she was in bed for a week. She indulges her twin Madrigals’ tantrums. She holds no particular animosity towards Thomas, not caring much either way when he was cut off from the rest of House Raith. She was present during the White Court conclave at the Deeps during the White Night case and irritated Lara by Feeding—or just “chewing” —on one of the human thralls that line the red carpet path to the cavern. She escaped the destruction of the Deeps through the aid of the allies of Harry Dresden.
Madeline has now come to Portland to check on the Raith holdings being managed by Nerise Patel.
UPDATE: Madeline was the focus of a plot engineered by the Red Court Margrave of Seattle to bring the White Court into the Vampire War against the wizards. A vampire named Ricky Parsons had enthralled a focused practitioner and was using her as a cat’s paw in several attempts on Madeline’s life, trying to make it look as if the acts were carried out by Wardens. Both the practitioner, Laurie James, and Ricky were killed for their efforts by Brianna Karkana and Madeline, respectively.
Madeline wanted satisfaction for the attempts on her life, threatening to bring the White Court into the war herself, but against the Red Court. Finally, war was averted by a duel-by-proxy against the Margrave—each side chose a champion to fight on their behalf. Madeline chose Brianna Karkana. The Margrave chose his bodyguard, the ghoul Mikolaj Jasinski. Brianna won the duel and satisfaction was had.
Madeline is now traveling abroad, without her bodyguard, who returned to Portland.
