[Personality]

Quote:
Madelaine is a complicated young girl. Kept cooped up in Westerland for most of her young adult life, she yearns for something more, more excitement, more say in where her life takes her. So far, there’s been no indication that anything will change for her, and that fact is endlessly frustrating for her. She exerts control in every aspect of her life she possibly can, no matter how trivial it may seem.

Prone to mood swings, she can go from righteous anger to giddy happiness rather quickly. While she appears to be a rather typical noble teenager, she reads people well, often presenting what she thinks they want, and never trusting anyone as much as she might make it out to seem that she does.

She knows how to play court life well enough, she was well-trained, as the Blanchards considered themselves as royal as any. She keeps her mood swings under wraps in public, never liking to draw attention to herself. After all, the more she flies under the radar, the more she’ll be permitted. She knows the relatively good treatment she’s received might crumble if she falters.

She never really settled after their capturing, never forced to accept her lot in life like her sister’s situation. She still holds a lot of resentment and anger towards the Fitzwulfs, but is not stupid, she’d never let that on. She is loyal to her family, always will be, even though it appears to just be Alaine now. Even though she didn’t agree with all her sister’s choices, or at least what she was forced into, she never would stop supporting her sister.
- Taken from previous profile, written by Latara

Grateful to know that Corbin is alive, well and looking to retake what was lost, Madelaine is awash with conflicted states once more. She is glad to be out of captivity, eager to prove her gratitude to King Adrien, but is desperately worried for her brother at war, and her missing sister. No word has come from or of Alaine since she was taken from Arbrecht, adding to Maddie's worries. Traveling with Princess Keyna has been wonderful, a much craved opportunity to see Forsilvra, contradicting her desire to see the war ended, the Fitzwulfs humbled and Arbrecht in the grips of a peace once more. She can only see the unknown stretching out before her and pray that everything turns out as it is meant to be especially for her own future.

Her time with the Fitzwulfs has taught her how to wear a mask and hide her feelings. She has learned to smile and laugh while her heart bleeds for her lost and missing loved ones. Maddie knows the value of watching every word she speaks and how to use the truth. Now that she is with Princess Keyna, she has a chance to enjoy being a member of the Court, to be a part of something important and to be the girl she never could have been in captivity.

Maddie has had to grow up too fast and she is not as light hearted as some of the other ladies because of it but she does enjoy herself when she can. Hope is finally starting to come back to her, hope that something good and great is waiting for her and for all of the Blanchards.

-------------------------------

[History]

Quote:
Madelaine had an idyllic childhood, or maybe she just chooses to remember it that way. She was left to mostly her own devices in the castle, running around with the servants children and her siblings whenever she could.

As she got older, her lessons turned to ladylike things. She didn’t push back too hard, although she wasn’t that interested, because she knew that complying with her parents and tutors requests would be easiest on her, and she could have more time to do the things she wished. One thing she never wished to fight were riding lessons, she loved horses.

The war with the Fitzwulfs started when she was ten, and the plague around the same time. Everything seemed to darken around her, and she even tried to find a way to blame the plague on the Fitzwulfs, trying to impose reason on a confusing world. Her mother died of plague in the midst of war, and Madelaine still wonders if they would have found some other way out if Rohine Blanchard had lived.

Soon after, they were all captured, Cesaire and Corbin to prison and Alaine and Madelaine to their gilded cages of rooms in the Fitzwulf Castle. A year later, they were told their father and Corbin were both dead, the war was over, and Alaine was to marry Jon.

With only her sister left of her family, Madelaine was surprised at how little changed. The castle was different, but the lessons were the same, and she still expected to be pawned off in marriage whenever Jon felt it appropriate. Alaine had grown attached to William’s little whelp, it seemed, and Madelaine hoped that would spare them both. That is, until the Kingdom returned to Court...
Taken from previous profile, written by Latara

Everything changed in a matter of weeks, it felt like. Jon was killed and Alaine went missing, Maddie stayed under Fitzwulf control until the rumors started to stir. Corbin was not dead. Corbin was alive and raising an army. King Adrien arrived in Arbrecht, and granted her request to be taken from the Fitzwulfs. From there, life was a whirl, traveling to Lacharn to meet and join Princess Keyna's retinue, then to the Vandermark and back again to Lacharn for the wedding that was not.

Meantime, the war went on in Arbrecht and Maddie had little knowledge of what was going on, which side was holding fast and what was to come. She did her duties by Keyna, glad to be busy and distracted but it did not stop her worries for Alaine and Corbin. The longer she went without word, the more those worries grew. She was losing sleep even more, knowing that King Adrien and the Vandermark lords went to Arbrecht to end the war, and that she might be used as pawn to negotiation that end. Life is up in the air, each day taken as a gift until she is able to meet her brother and sister again.

-------------------------------

[Writing Sample]


Exotic places made for a good distraction until night fell and Madelaine was alone in her bed. In the minutes between awake and asleep, her mind flew back to Arbrecht, wondering what was going in in the war. Were Corbin's plans to retake the province successful? Was Alaine all right and safe? Would the Fitzwulfs know what was coming? Maddie did not wish ill on Elanor, the only Fitzwulf who was kind to her during her stay at Westerlands, but the family of wolves itself had done their best to remove the Blanchards completely. Had she stayed in their custody, who knew what they would have done? Married her to someone to remove the last trace of the Blanchard name, probably.

She was proud of her name, relieved to know that Corbin was alive and well. Worried for Alaine her sister in spite of their differing opinions on Jon Fitzwulf and his son, Maddie could only pray that Alaine had gotten to safety and reached Corbin. War was a dreadful thing. Her memories were dimmed by time, but she remembered the fear and the horror of the war between the Fitzwulfs and the Blanchards. Not even ten years later and the tides were turning. Maddie knew she would still have to make a marriage, but this time, it would be to help restore the Blanchard name and titles.

Turning her head, she saw the stars shining out of the window and felt the cool air of night drift from its open panes. Unfamiliar scents of night blooming flowers reminded her she was not in her gilded cage any more, but free thanks to the King. Hoping that he would be just, wise and fair when they reached Arbrecht, Maddie closed her eyes and let the memories come. Only the good memories, the ones that comforted her and made her believe that more good memories were waiting to be made when the war was over and the world was made right again.

The only thing I notice and no worries for not catching it is the last thread Adrien and Maddie did was him telling her he was taking her back to Arbrecht. I'm on my phone but can get you the link if needed. As much as he hates doing it his plan was to use Maddie as a bargaining chip with Corbin if needed.

So that would be the only thing to add and then I'm good! <3
