Princess Mambo Madonna Magdalene or “Mags” as she is known by the public at large. Her name is a curse, and she will only reveal her name and blessed heritage with those who show enough faith in Bondye (supreme and unreachable God). Her father, King Chiquita of the Yellow Island, is the source of royal, yet meaningless, title: a long forgotten kingdom long overrun by the French. Her mother, Sequolukobooboodae, gave her the faith and the healer’s touch. When she was five years old, her mother performed a ritual in which the Loa, Papa Legba, led Mags to her name: Madonna Magdalene. Mags is a mambo, although she likes to keep that secret for the most part.
After the French invasion and occupation and about the time she was 11 years old, all of Mags’ family was killed in the final conflict that would put the Yellow Island firmly in the hands of the French. Mags was captured, sold into slavery. Her last owner, Frederick Thomas, freed Mags when she was 16. Although Mr. Thomas was affable, he was a ruthless gambler. Everything Mags knows about gambling and seduction, she learned from Frederick. As a matter of fact, a mark cornered at the poker table by Mr. Thomas would set in motion Mags liberation. You see that mark was a famous lawman and Frederick shot him dead. Of course, he was cheating, but that didn’t stop the famous lawman’s henchmen from gunning down good old Frederick Thomas. Mags has been “wanted” ever since.
