- ""Jag älskar dig alltid för evigt""
- —Eric in Swedish to Madison. Translates as I love you Always and Forever
As the first child born to Eric naturally, after he was turned into a vampire, he was indulgent and overprotective of Madison. As a baby, Eric would spend the night with Madison as she would never sleep unless he was there, even then it would be an hour or so. During her childhood, Eric was the one who took main responsibility for watching Madison at night as she became as lively then as during the day. Often he caught her staring at the wall in the ensuite where the portal was before ushering her to her bed. Developing a close bond with Madison. Madison was devasted when she watched him and her mother die in her time but knowing she could hear his thoughts, Eric told her she wasn't a monster and that he and Sookie would always love and be proud of her before dying. Going back in time, Madison was hit on by the human version of her father before her grandfather stepped in as she tried to get Eric to back off. Before going forwards and spending the rest of her time with her mother. When Eric lost his memory, he recognised her blood and called her 'his'. After the events with Marnie, her parents and Bill asked her to tell them who she really was. Explaining everything, Madison was embraced by Eric as he accepted her words.
As the only child of Sookie and Eric, Madison was also indulged by her mother. Sookie told her how to use her telepathy and was there when Madison first met Macklyn Warlow. On the eve of Madison's 21st birthday, Sookie was burned at the state with Eric as punishment for Madison's existence.
