She's Max's closest friend, and after Jack Rackham takes over the brothel with Max as his madam, she gains a position of some prominence among the rest of the prostitutes. She gets into a relationship with pirate Augustus Featherstone and joins the pirate rebellion when England attempt to re-establish control of the island
At the end of the series, her lover Featherstone becomes the new Governor of Nassau, with her at his side.
Season One Edit
Idelle is first seen among "Blackbeard's girls", prostitutes hired as a welcoming gift for John Silver upon his arrival in Nassau. Later, she tells Max that Rackham is downstairs, when Max forms a partnership with Silver.While Max tries to sell the stolen Urca schedule to Rackham, Silver uses her room to spy on them. Bored, Idelle asks if he would like her to do anything that would be worth the money, but he turns her down.Later, after Max's scheming is discovered and Eleanor betrays her, Idelle covers for Max as she sneaks out of the brothel. Although Max escapes and it's known one of the working girls helped, it is never stated if she ever faces repercussions for her actions.
Season Two Edit
Idelle remains Max’s closest friend in Rackham’s brothel, even as Max rises to replace Mrs. Mapleton as the new madam of the whorehouse. She's an expert at getting people to give her information during sex, which Max then sells.
After Charles Vane forgives Rackham and Anne Bonny so that they may sail again, Idelle tells Max of an influential pirate named Augustus Featherstone, who can be swayed to join Rackham’s crew. When Idelle suggests that can accomplish this through purely erotic methods, Max instead recommends that Idelle seduce him and make him fall in love with her. Idelle succeeds and Featherstone joins Rackham’s crew, along with 28 other men and their ship.
Later, Idelle finds the bodies of Logan and Charlotte, who Bonny has killed in an attempt to find the location of the Urca gold. On Max’s insistence, she helps to hide the bodies and protect Bonny from any consequences. After this, Bonny remains in the brothel for some time. One night, Bonny even tries to take a man upstairs as if she were a prostitute. Before anything can happen, Idelle intervenes and distracts the man, giving Bonny an avenue to leave the room.
Over time, Idelle and Featherstone become something of a couple, although Idelle still works in the brothel.
Season Three Edit
When Governor Rogers re-establishes English control of Nassau, Featherstone accepts the pardon. He seeks reassurance from Idelle that she still loves him now that he is no longer a pirate.
However, he soon starts to drift back towards the pirates. When Vane returns to Nassau seeking Rackham and Bonny and the cache of pearls, Featherstone tells him that Rackham has been arrested, and Bonny is to exchange the cache of pearls for him.
Featherstone tries to enlist Idelle to betray Max, and find out where the exchange of the cache is to happen. Idelle is reluctant at first, until Max employs the hated Mrs. Mapleton as the madam in the whorehouse again. She finally agrees. Later, Idelle continues to spy for the pirates, providing them with the route which the convoy will use to transport Rackham and the cache to the Spanish.
Mrs. Mapleton eventually discovers that Idelle is a spy and informs Max. However, Max takes no immediate action against Idelle. As the pirate rebellion grows, Max seems to be letting the drama play out and once again land on the winning side.
Season Four Edit
Max eventually confronts Idelle and Featherstone over their spying for the pirate rebels; it was she who intercepted the warning about the underwater wrecks barricading the harbour. She’ll let it slide, but no more, if they value their lives.
When Governor Rogers invites the Spanish to sack Nassau, Featherstone escapes with Idelle on a ship. Afterwards, Featherstone becomes Jack's quartermaster again as they travel to Philadelphia and make the deal with Eleanor's grandmother.
After defeating Woodes Rogers, Jack and Max finalise the deal with Marion Guthrie to revitalise Nassau as a legitimate flourishing port. However, Max refuses to marry an easily manipulated man from society to act as the new Governor, for fear that it will ruin her chances of rekindling things with Bonny. In the end, Governor Augustus Featherstone is seen shaking hands with yet more respectable business partner, with Idelle at his side. From the balcony opposite, Max looks on with a smile, the real power behind the throne.

- "Idelle: Sure I cant suck your cock while you do that?
Silver: Um, thank you, no.
Idelle: Use my hand? Sing you a song? Something worth paying money for?...Fucking peepers."
- ―Idelle and John Silver[src]
- "Max: You must seduce him. Yes, there is a difference. The breath in his ear. The arch in your back when he thinks he is making you finish. The look in your eyes when you finally breathe again that tells him you would do anything he asked in that moment. Anything at all without hesitation. The story you tell him that night about when you were a little girl, about the place you hid from your mother where the world was quiet. A story you've never told another soul. The look of confusion you show him when you wake up the next morning that tells him despite the thousand other men you've awoken beside, that he is unique. That he has seen you vulnerable. And that you cannot live without him.
Idelle: I completely understand. Just so we're clear, I still fuck the shit out of him, yes?"
