Early Life

Madelyn is the middle child of an American-Irish family of five. Her family live in Pittsburgh. There is also a large extended family or varying levels of success - one common trait is a particular sense of social responsibility. She has two and a half years of experience in the FBI, a BS/MS in biological sciences focusing on physiology and a MD from Brown University and Brown Medical School, respectively. She worked with Fred Duncan, Deputy Assistant Director responsible for mutant-related cases in the latter part of her time at the Bureau and remained in touch with him when she quit due to personal reasons. Her insatiable professional curiosity about physiology, in particular mutant physiology, and the differences between different types of mutants led her to accept a doctor's position at the school immediately prior to Jean Grey's death.

Life at Xavier's

During her time in the school, Madelyn worked in the medlab and infirmary and taught various classes, mainly Biology and Criminal Justice. She took Clarice Ferguson under her wing and sponsored her as a medlab helper after Moira MacTaggart said she wasn't suitable and researched the powers of several of the residents. She also took a hand in helping Jubilation Lee with her various issues. With Hank McCoy's absence for a good portion of 2004 and 2005, Madelyn also began going on X-Men missions that required a medic.

During the X-Men Mission: Firefountain, Madelyn and Moira both developed super powers. Madelyn's power was to heal any wound, any sickness, and the loss of that was a hard one for her to take. Their mutual frustration led Moira and Madelyn to create the Anodyne and Cornucopia Foundation, an organisation dedicated to helping the homeless and underprivileged.

2005 in particular was a busy period, with several major injuries happening to close friends between September and November and driving her close to breaking point. However, with Hank's return in December 2004 and increasing role in medlab affairs, the pressure had eased and Madelyn had the chance to become more involved socially in the school. It resulted in both Kurt Wagner and Hank developing feelings for her and Madelyn making the choice to be with Hank. Their relationship progressed in fits and starts, especially after the birth and Hank's adoption of Billy, Dani's son.

Towards the end of 2005, Madelyn expressed a certain frustration with her role at the school and Moira suggested that a change was in order. The Anodyne and Cornucopia Foundation needed a director, and Madelyn accepted the job, moving with Hank and Billy to live in Edinburgh in December, 2005. She was killed when the Brotherhood invaded Muir Island in January 2015.

Madelyn became addicted to Miles Blaire's chocolate waffles and they were a special treat after a nightshift in the infirmary.

Meta Trivia

Madelyn was the only non-socked original character in X-Project. She was originally created by Lizzie, then was taken over by game founder Jules to provide the game with a medical doctor, and then adopted by Rossi in June 2004. In December 2005 Rossi temporarily left the game, and on her return, Madelyn was retired by request of the mod team due to the precedent in regards to OCs she set.
