Madeline Hatter, referred to as Maddie by her friends, is a 2013-introduced all-around character. She is part of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland as the next Mad Hatter, and she is a student at Ever After High. In the destiny conflict, she is on the Rebel side out of a general belief that people should be free to choose, though she herself is eager to follow in her father's footsteps. In fact, she spends a good portion of her free time working at the Mad Hatter's Tea Shoppe in the Village of Book End, which is owned by her father. Madeline loves every minute of it, from gathering ingredients, to brewing, to brightening up someone's day over a warm cup of tea. As all Wonderlandians, she has access to Wonderlandian magic, although it is more accurate to say that Wonderlandian magic has access to her, because she doesn't have control over her powers. The most significant way Wonderlandian magic manifests in her is that she sometimes has visions of other times and other places.
Madeline is bright, energetic, and extremely friendly. Generally, she interprets things more positive than they are, the one exception being when people are explicitly arguing. Madeline is also extremely fond of tea and keeps an entire tea set, including her tea buddy and pet Earl Grey, in her hat to be ready for tea time wherever she goes. She has many reality and 4th wall shattering perks, such as being able to hear the narrators and claiming to see into the future- though people rarely take her seriously on either of those.
Madeline's hair is curly and comes in three colors: dark turquoise, light turquoise, and purple. She has bright blue eyes and light skin, and is a little shorter than her female classmates. Her main fashion motif is tea; most of her outfits incorporate tea set-inspired details. In addition to her hair's colors, her clothes of choice feature yellow, black, and blue. Combined with a vast array of nonsynchronized patterns, her average look is a busy one, befitting her energetic personality.
Though not necessarily friends, Madeline is on decent terms with the narrators, who will stop fighting if she tells them to. As well, Madeline is the only one aware of their existence, being uniquely able to hear and talk to them.
Madeline owns a dormouse named Earl Grey.
Madeline is not currently romantically involved with anyone, but she keeps an eye open for a boy who's just as mad for tea as she is.

On the first day of school, Madeline enters her dorm by tumbling through a wall and has tea with her roommate, Raven Queen. Madeline introduces herself to the Narrator and continues to listen to its observations. While eating lunch in the Castleteria with Raven and Cedar Wood, Madeline receives her schedule for Legacy Year, which includes Chemythstry, Riddling, and Storytelling 101.
