Mistress Madrene is robustly built woman, rosy cheeked and matronly. The proprietress of the Cat's Paw house of ill repute, she and a few of the more senior of the girls hold the lease on the Cat’s Paw, which was purchased a couple of years ago from Radd the Northerner, a particularly unpleasant man everyone was pleased to see gone; Madrene keeps a number of bouncers and bawds on staff because she knows first hand just how dangerous this business can prove. Formerly a cloud-den, Madrene has outlawed the Cloud from the premises, and has been known to turn out patrons she even suspects of being under the cloud. Ravvh is a rough area, and people cannot afford the services of professional courtesans and Madrene knows it, and for this reason she keeps her business inexpensive and accessible.


Madrine is a broad, matronly woman, quick to smile or laugh. Her skin is dark and beginning to show her age and her pale hair is shot through with silver at the temples, but despite this any onlooker can see the great beauty she must have once been. Seldom without her long-stemmed pipe, Madrine dresses simply for comfort rather than to impress - her days of being powdered and corseted are behind her, and she prefers to make the most of the relative disregard for her appearance that she has earned, still she is always clean, tidy and well groomed, her clothes never stained and a certain strictness about her appearance still remains.


While Madrine is a woman of great humour, always ready with a smile and glad to share a hearty laugh she is also a professional, and is usually just as ready with a critical eye and comment for her girls. Behind her back she is known as the 'Marshal of the Cathouse' and there are similarities to a military camp in the precision and poise she demands of her staff. Still, even though she can be heavy handed it is difficult to dislike Madrine entirely, and those who remember Radd the Northerner are nothing but glad of her management.


Madrine has a long history in the oldest profession, she was a streetwalker in some very rough districts of the city, but in the years immediately following the Bandit Wars she quickly realized that this would leave here in an alley with a knife in her back before her time. Finding a brothel to attach herself to in Birdhe she felt more secure, and quickly her natural leadership abilities came to the fore, as well as her ability to naturally relate to the patrons and her beauty, and she was one of the establishment's most popular commodities. Quickly she was onsold to an establishment in Buinebridge, then to Broadstreet where she almost exclusively managed the younger girls. By this stage she had amassed a tidy sum of gold, and when a place in a less-than-reputable neighborhood in Ravvh became available Madrine found a business partner in a former client named Angorn and purchased the sigh of the cat's paw from Radd the Northerner. In the years since she bought out Angorn's investment and the rest, as they say, is history.


Madrine is well connected in Tohl, but not necessarily well liked. Many of her competitors and former business partners would like nothing better than to see her fail, but since she relocated to Ravvh she has dropped out of sight for most of those people. In Ravvh she has quickly become an institution, and while many of her staff chafe under her yolk most are still loyal and respectful. Madrine never married, and now she is of advanced years probably never will, but while she never talks about it there are rumours that she has fathered a son, though where he is if this is true remains a mystery.
