|Personal History||For as long as she could remember, Madeleine had always been drawn to the stars, though she was raised on Earth with her Mother while her Father served as Chief Medical Officer aboard the USS Arrowhead. Though they talked via subspace frequently and he often managed to find the time to return to Earth and spend time with them in France, his frequent and long absences meant that their relationship was often strained, especially as she got older and rebellious. The strain in their relationship was further exacerbated by what she perceived as a phenomenal indifference toward her presence on the part of her Mother.
At the age of 13 she ran away from home, trying to convince a Transport pilot that she was eighteen in order to secure passage to Starbase 218 where she knew the Arrowhead was due to be docking soon. Her plan failed when the transport pilot refused to accept her fare, and out of concern for her safety, alerted the Authorities to her presence. After she was returned to her family home, her Father made the decision that they would join him on the Arrowhead and he would return to Earth to collect them in a few months time, just before her Fourteenth birthday. As the day of his return grew closer, she grew more and more excited, excitement that would be short lived. The transport her Father was returning to Earth on was attacked by raiders and he was killed trying to protect the women and children on the vessel. Though his death had been honourable, Madeleine was unable to see beyond her own anger toward him. The injury of her Father's death was further insulted when her Mother arranged for her to be taken to boarding school shortly after.
At the completion of her schooling, with no family to return to, Madeleine decided to follow in her Father's footsteps and applied for summer intake at Starfleet Academy in the field of Medicine.
It was during her second year at the Academy that she met Javier De Saint Castine, an Engineering cadet in his third year. The two started dating soon after. He proposed to her shortly before his graduation from the Academy. Upon graduation he was assigned to the USS Katherine, though he took a short sabbatical to return to Earth for her Graduation from the Academy. The two married shortly after her graduation and she joined him on the USS Katherine as a Medical Officer.
Despite their initial happiness, their marriage quickly became strained, something Madeleine hoped would be resolved by the arrival of their daughter, Elodie, who was born a little over a year later, though it quickly became apparent that that would not be the case. After the arrival of their daughter, Javier became even more disinterested. With his complete lack of interest in their lives, Madeleine committed herself to raising her daughter to be happy and loved, despite her own unhappiness in their marriage. It was shortly after Elodie's second birthday that Madeleine discovered that Javier had been having an ongoing affair with one of the Nurses from Medical, a Nurse that Madeleine herself had long considered a friend. As the story came out, it was discovered that he had been unfaithful since long before their marriage and her arrival on the ship. The two fought extensively which only ended when Madeleine left their quarters, taking Elodie to the ship's nursery school so she could attend to her own duty shift.
While she was on duty a heavily damaged borg sphere dropped out of transwarp right in front of them. The USS Katherine was attacked and sustained heavily damage and the order was given to abandon ship. Unable to return to the nursery school to get her daughter, Madeleine was forced to enter an escape pod with other medical staff.
The escape pod she was in was collected by the USS Kirkland. Having sustained serious injuries in the attack and subsequent evacuations, Madeleine was transferred immediately to sickbay for urgent medical treatment. Two days later, she finally received the confirmation that both her husband and her daughter had been killed. While Elodie had been evacuated with other children from the nursery school and their teachers, their escape pod had been destroyed by the Borg sphere, while Javier had been killed in an explosion aboard the ship.
Having been cleared to return to duty, but unable to face the thought of returning to the freshly repaired USS Katherine, Madeleine requested, and was granted an immediate transfer to the USS Yokovich. With nothing else left, she dedicated her life to her job, quickly being promoted to full Lieutenant and then a year later being granted the position of Assistant Chief Medical Officer aboard the USS Yokovich before being transferred to the USS Orion as Chief Medical Officer.
