Madeline Bassett, daughter of Sir Watkyn in Right Ho, Jeeves, The Code of the Woosters, The Mating Season, Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves, Much Obliged, Jeeves. A soppy girl with a soupy, treacly voice and a tinkling, silvery laugh, she holds the view that the stars are God's daisy chain. Undeniably an eyeful: slim, svelte, and bountifully equipped with golden hair and all the fixings, but has a subtle air of being on the point of talking baby talk. Her favorite reading is Winnie the Pooh and the works of Rosie M. Banks. Close friend of Aunt Dahlia's daughter Angela Travers. Threatens to marry Bertie Wooster and try to make him happy whenever her marriage plans go sour; agrees to marry Spode in The Code of the Woosters, Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves, and Much Obliged, Jeeves; serially engaged to both Bertie and Gussie in Right Ho, Jeeves, to Gussie (her ideal mate, in Bertie's view) in The Mating Season. Lives at The Larches, Wimbledon Common.
