When Madeline's mother died, she left her stepfather and swore to get revenge on him for all the pain he had caused her mother. She supported herself taking on a career as a detective.

She did get her revenge and had a number of adventures. After gaining her inheritance, she traveled to Europe and eventually she married her friend, Dr. Clarence Vaughn. Madeline was attractive with blonde hair, brown eyes and pale cheeks. She was pretty wrathful towards evil doers.
