Colony tell us that Maddie:
Maddie is Katie Bowman’s younger sister, who relies greatly on Katie to provide for her family. Maddie’s son Hudson is diabetic, which is a condition that the Transitional Authority has deemed “unworthy for treatment” in order to cull weakness from the herd.
Before the Arrival, Maddie was a wealthy art gallery owner whose husband was away in New York during the Arrival. Maddie is forced to use her charm and connections in the art world to help climb the social ladder in the Green Zone, though she lives in the Bowman’s converted garage rather than in the Green Zone itself.
Maddie and Katie look alike. They are also alike in that they would do anything for their children. But when Maddie’s son, Hudson needs insulin, it seems as though she’s relying on her sister to take care of him. I am looking forward to hearing more about her job in the art world, and what she is able to learn in her travels in the Green Zone.
