She was the first wife of Arturo Genosa, but they divorced.[1]

Harry first meets Madge at a soiree in her apartment for Arturo's film crew. She invested in the current film and claims that she's keeping an eye on him to make sure he doesn't throw the money away.[3][1]

Madge sacrificed Lucille Delarossa (Arturo's ex-wife number two) for the entropy curse that killed Emma.[4]

Madge performs a ritual in Lord Raith's cave, and under his leadership, intending to sacrifice Thomas Raith to kill Harry Dresden. It's Raith's intention to rid himself of Margaret LeFay's death curse by killing both of her sons in the ritual that Madge is performing.[4]

The ritual Madge used calls up He Who Walks Behind, and when he gains form, he kills her.[5]
