Maudeline Everglot is the mother of Victoria Everglot. Pedigreed and established vieux riche of Victorian society, Maudeline and her husband, Finnis, having squandered the last of the ancient family inheritance passed down to them, are forced to find a new way to maintain their enormous home and cautiously lavish lifestyle. The Everglots see their financial salvation in Victor, the son of William and Nell Van Dort, a pair of nouveau riche fish merchants whose parvenu is disdained by the Everglots, yet not considered as important as the money they can bring to the marriage to the Everglot's daughter, Victoria. Haughty and contempt, Maudeline is a cold, distant figure whose primary objective is in keeping with proper decorum and civilized habits to preserve her family's good name. She makes it clear that her feelings for her husband, Finnis, extends only so far as toleration and that she does not "like" him and that her motherly duties are only to find her daughter a "proper" match (in this instance- money). She was positioned to be the main antagonist, but gives way to Lord Barkis being revealed as the primary villain.
Maudeline's outward appearance is insipired by her values and personality. Her hair, potentially her most noticeable aspect, is as high as her pride and always well maintained despite the circumstances. Her crisp, tailored dress a testament to expensive living, but not extravagant or needing for attention. Her face and posture speak for the old money she is -perfect composure and an upturned nose compliment her look of disdain and impeccable, posh accent.
After the Corpse Bride took Victor away, Victoria warns her Mother and Father that Victor had been taken away by a Corpse Bride, but She and her husband Finis Doesn't believe her, so Maudeline and Finnis send her to her room. Victoria escapes to warn the priest, Pastor Galswells, he brings Victoria back to The Everglot's Mansion and tells Maudeline that she's insane, and then Maudeline forces her maid and butler to lock Victoria's window to make sure she doesn't escape again. Lord Barkis comes up to the Maudeline and Finis and he persways them to have Victoria marry him. They agree with him. Maudeline and her husband forces their daughter to marry Lord Barkis according to plan.
After Barkis and Victoria's Wedding, The people of the Land of the Dead seize to haunt all the people, even the Everglots run straight to their room with fear and are never seen again in the final of the film. Victor and Victoria have their wedding the next day. Maudeline, Nell, William and the whole town show up at Victor and Victoria's wedding. Maudeline and Finis were put in jail soon after victoria's wedding.
