Madison is a smart, caring person. She has a kind heart and prefers to settle disputes by talking, not by violence. She believes that Downworlders have the possibility to be equal to Nephilim, as she knows that not all Downworlders are good and kind. To her own people she seems soft, but she thinks with a level head and can think through problems, and that's all that matters to Idris.
She carries a sword of silver and electrum, cooled in holy water. She considers it to be the ultimate weapon of choice.
Madison was born and raised in a small town outside of London. Her father was born a Nephilim, but her mother was born a Mundane, and chose to go through Ascension. The council approved this because she quickly learned the ways of the Nephilim, and they were surprised and pleased that she would be joining them. She drank from the cup, said the oath, and was made a member of the Nephilim.
When Madison was born, her parents moved from Idris to just outside of London so they could work at and for the London Institute. Growing up, Madison learned the ways of the Nephilim, and trained hard. She was taught by her mother that all lives are precious if born on the earth, or born in heaven. Downworlders and Mundanes were to be respected, and demons were to be killed. Resort to violence as a last resort.
Madison took this in stride and used it. She was known to the London institute as the best negotiator, and when she officially became an adult, they offered her the position of running the London Institute, as the ones who ran it at that time wanted to retire to Idris. Madison was honored and said yes, and has run the Institute since.
Nephilim Physiology: Shadowhunters possess a variety of enhanced physical and mental abilities granted to them by the blood of the Angel Raziel flowing in their veins and also by the angelic Marks of the Gray Book. They also have the power to perform tasks unique to their species, such as the ability to use and call on the power of the angels for their seraph blades. This includes enhanced strength, agility, coordination, and stamina, which only improves over time and practice.
Runic Magic: Due to angel blood in their veins, Shadowhunters are able to apply runes on their skin without any danger. These Marks, in tuurn, give varied effects that serve to benefit the wearer.
