Madchen was born with her twin brother in the castle town of Gotha shortly before his father was coronated king. However, their mother Bianca/Nera/Debora was abducted by monsters and their father went missing searching for her. Eight years later, she along with her brother and Sancho finally located their petrified father. Using the Stolos' staff, she was able to restore him to life. With him recuperated, the twins journeyed with their father in search of their missing mother.

Equipment, Stats, and Abilities[edit]

Madchen can equip most knives, whips, and staves. Unlike her mother, she can also equip a silver shield. She is principally a spellcaster, in particular learning ice and blast spells.
