Madeline Raith is a vampire of the White Court, and member of House Raith. She first appears in Blood Rites.

DescriptionEdit

Madeline is the fraternal twin of Madrigal Raith.[1] She is a cousin of Lara and Thomas Raith.[2][3]

She is six feet tall, pale skin, dark hair, shiny highlights, beautiful face despite the obvious arrogance. She walked with a predator's prowl and grace.[4] She feeds off lust, and her behaviors and actions are dictated by her Hunger. Feeding is a natural reflex for her. She thinks she should get to feed on anyone she wants, anytime, anywhere. Her Hunger controls her completely.[5] According to Thomas, Lara is tired of cleaning up after her.[4]

BiographyEdit

Madeline is suspected of working as a puppet for the Black Council, although there is no confirmation. She tracked Harry using a private investigator in order to discover Morgan's location. Madeline is later killed and eaten by Lara Raith.[6]

In the seriesEdit

Blood RitesEdit

Main article: Blood Rites

Madeline is first mentioned in Blood Rites, when Lara Raith cuts Thomas off from the protection of House Raith, including financial support, he questions if it was the Twins idea. Lara says it was Madrigal Raith who pressed her into it but Madeline didn't particularly care.[1]

Turn CoatEdit

Main article: Turn Coat

In Turn Coat, Madeline makes a vampy entrance through Zero. When she threatens Justine, Thomas breaks a metal chair over  her head, then pins her to a table and lets Justine kiss Madeline's forehead, burning the flesh while Madeline screams. Thomas tells Harry their House has firm rules on poaching, Madeline deserved it, and she had to be shown.[7][4]

It comes out that Madeline had tampered with the mind of Evelyn Derek and paid her to hire a detective, and sent the hitman Binder and his Grey Suits after Harry. And she most likely sent "Shagnasty", the Naagloshii to the Raith estate suspecting that Harry and Anastasia Luccio were telling Lara Raith information that would finger her. Harry brought it to Lara's attention.[8] [9]

On Demonreach, Madeline and Binder attack the Council with Grey Men. She subdues Harry with her White vampire mojo, then nearly shoots him in the head. William Borden and Georgia stop her and take her on. They scatter when Harry warns them of Binder and his gun. She goes for Harry who shoots her several times, but she keeps coming. She is stopped and killed by Lara Raith. Madeline affected Will Borden and Georgia in a way that took them out of the battle, but didn't harm them in the long run.[10]
