An old classmate of Lorna, Martha Madison used to be better in Lorna in just about everything they did (debate club, cheerleading squad, beauty pagents). She also works for a secret British organization of alchemists that manipulated American architects into constructing Washington's roads in a way that allows a malign force called the Living Chaos to enter our world from its own dark dimension.
After being foiled by Lorna and with the gateway to the dark dimension closing, the Living Chaos grabs Martha as a ritual sacrifice and tries to drag her into its own dimension. Lorna tries to free Martha from the Living Chaos' grasp but lets go of her hand when Martha teases her about having slept with a man that Lorna has a crush on. Martha is pulled into the dark dimension just as the gateway closes.
