She is one of the Elderfolk, but has operated her fortune telling parlour out of Greenwich Village for many a year. She was later able to gain her immortality by besting Death in a game of cards.
After she and her teammates on the Demon Knights successfully defend the town of Little Spring from the forces of the Questing Queen , the team moves on while Madame Xanadu explains the relationship between herself and Etrigan and Jason Blood.

The Vampire War is over and she still sees the vision that brought her around to creating the Justice League Dark. She sees a multitude of dead.
