Madelyn is the middle child of an American-Irish family of three children. Her elder brother, Joe plays saxophone in a jazz band and her younger sister Carlie, the baby of the family, began college in 2005.
The elder Bartlets live in Pittsburgh, in the house Madelyn's great-grandfather bought when he got married. Madelyn's little sister lived with their parents, who were on the brink of retirement - Monica was a nurse, working as a physiotherapy assistant, and her father was the manager of a small accountancy firm.
Madelyn maintained close contact with her family despite her busy life, especially at family holidays - only the end of the world is a good enough excuse to miss Christmas dinner, according to her mother. There is also a large extended family or varying levels of success - one common trait is a particular sense of social responsibility. All the Bartlets (and the Callaghans, her mother's family) are involved in some form of community service, from volunteering at their local church (the family is Catholic, although generally not vocal about it) to a cousin working with the Peace Corps in Africa, and Madelyn herself.
Carlie in particular formed ties with the school, befriending Jubilee when Madelyn brought her to a Bartlet Thanksgiving dinner and then visiting the school on occasion. Passionate about politics and human rights, she often communicated with Forge about HeliX and the mutant-awareness group she was a part of at college. She is a graduate student with the Department of Political Science at Pennsylvania State University. She was instrumental in organising a number of "Coexistence Rallies" in the wake of Day Zero and the rise in anti-mutant feeling following the attack on New York. She recently attended the Columbia Memorial to promote HeliX in its new incarnation as a mutant-human coexistence coalition.
