Curse of the Mistwraith
Third Age 5638: During the Battle of Strakewood, Madreigh is one of the eleven that protect Jieret during an ambush near the grotto. After the grotto is immolated by Lysaer's gift, Madreigh becomes the defacto spokesperson for the others. When Pesquil's men ambush them, Madreigh guards Jieret at the base of the tree, while Arithon climbs up to enact his spellcraft. He is mortally wounded in the attack, but Arithon's last act before pursuing Jieret is to envelop him in the sleep snare, slowing his vitals. Madreigh is still alive when Arithon returns to the grotto after the Battle. It is unclear whether he survives beyond this event, but Arithon pleads for the clansmen to tend to him well.
Third Age 5670: When Arithon relives the Battle of Strakewood in Kewar Tunnel, the ghost of Madreigh carries the prince through the final stages of the battle. He reveals that because of Arithon's efforts, a brother survived him.
