On Sorva, Madrigal fell in love with a friend with whom she went out onto the lava pools. Her mother later had him assassinated by having his boat sabotaged. When the Sorvix fled from God through the Rift to Cardiff, Madrigal was betrothed to Osian in order to end the feud between their families, a feud that Ro-Jedda was afraid she would not be able to win.
Madrigal did not wish to marry Osian and her mother had her best friend Quenel consigned to the Sorvix rehabilitation clinic when she spoke against the marriage. Ro-Jedda paid Brongwyn to be Madrigal's best friend and Madrigal believed that she had eaten her human driver, whom Madrigal had taken a fancy to.
On her hen night, Madrigal ran away St John Colchester and Ng after Brongwyn made her eat a stripper and died after Mr Colchester drilled into her life support unit. Madrigal insisted on drinking alcohol and, after rescuing Quenel, went to a hospital for drugs before her mother's security detail caught up with them. Although they were saved by the police, she was manipulated by Mr Colchester into claiming it had all been a misunderstanding and returned to Osian. (AUDIO: Aliens & Sex & Chips & Gravy)
Madrigal was spoilt by her mother, whom she believed she could wrap around her finger. She usually obeyed her as she believed that nobody knew someone better than their mother. She enjoyed alcohol and aspirin and generally refrained from eating humans, due to their taste, and human food, due to her mother having told her not to. Despite what had happened with God, she wanted a new god who would tell them what to do. (AUDIO: Aliens & Sex & Chips & Gravy)
